After a long time we got an episode that was really good in all
respects. The flow was perfect, the screenplay well written and everyone
was in character (moi not commenting about Deveet
)Things I liked
Nandini finding the picture and freaking out was well executed
Dev and Geet finding her seemed natural.
I particularly liked the way she asked Dev to shut up and told him that she was only interested in talking to Geet
... she knows her priorities...even once his identity was revealed she did not warm up to him.
I like how Maan felt Geet needed him and made excuses to Teji. Teji asked him to take a bus
...sadda MSK taking a bus
...kya din aa gaye hain
...instead he showed up in time using his teleportation powers
... we have all seen these powers previously when he showed up just in time to save Geet from NT when NT was pushing her.
Loved Mamu scene where he was searching the store room for something and ended up finding a bottle of alcohol with Lucky help
...Lucky and Mamu are the best
Looking forward to the game of catch tomorrow Things I did not like
Dev lecturing Nandini on love is like Col. Gadaffi giving Mahatma Gandhi a lecture on peace and non-violence.
What does that loser know about love?
Chaddo I am not going into the details except to say Things I absolutely loved
voicing how much love and respect everyone in the family has for Geet
and her anguish at how she feels cheated and how her family will feel on
knowing the truth.
The understanding between Maaneet and how Maan takes all the blame on himself
The way he explains how everything transpired and how he ended up in the house as a driver.
you for finally making Geet open her mouth and admit what Maan means to
her and why Maan stayed back even after all the MUs were cleared.
Maaneet eyelocks and their understanding of each other was superb
favorite dialogue was the one in which she says "he never even opened
the bonnet of his own car but for me and his love, he is washing other
I love how Geet pleaded with her to understand Maan and how she will love Maan once she comes to know him.
Dev's support was good and that is all I am going to say about the matter.Future Tracks
have always been short of parallel tracks. I think it would be a great
idea to keep the Amristsar crowd alive. Mamu and Lukcy can provide comic
relief and Teji-Pammi can get their own track. The family can out Dev
on probation to figure out if he is good enough for Nandini and hence
Dev ends up staying back with them. You can have the track where they
torture him day in and day out to see if he has changed. The viewers
will love this.
You did not do a justice track so this would be the best you could do.
Show that Nandini also is hell bent on making sure he is true to his
word and shows him no mercy.
On the other hand Geet and Maan can go back to Delhi and you can start a
Maaneet centered track in Delhi. You can introduce Sameera and have
high voltage Drama with the Amritsar track to balance it out
his is a youth show, there is no place for babies here as you too
realize, which is why you took the MC route. Please do not show any
nonsense about her trying to conceive and not being able to conceive. It
is too Kektaish. Your audience will not like it. Your audience likes
light and funny stuff not heavy duty crying. I know Sameera's entry is
the next track but it would be more interesting to see her as a business
rival challenging MSK than as something else. We would get to see the
hot, angry Maan who is mean to her while being lover like to Geet. It
would make for some really wonderful scenes between husband and wife and
would work to strengthen their bond. I would love to see Geet as a
tigress defending her husband and her turf
We have seen Geet crying for so long, show us another side of her - a
side where she is willing to stand up to a tyrant who is trying to bring
down her husband. Sameera underestimates Geet and that becomes her
biggest mistake because she does not know what this girl is capable of.
Geet acts all innocent and keeps sabotaging her efforts behind her back.
Maan knows what is going on and is laughing at Sameera too. Geet with
her helpers pulls off the ultimate coup with Maan's help and gives
Sameera her just desserts. This is something the audience will love to
Rather than watching a sad Geet it will be more fun
watching an enthusiastic Geet laughing with Maan, playing pranks on him
and generally making him happy. This makes Sameera even more mad. People
will also enjoy a smiling and prankster Geet more than a crying Geet.
Of course there will be some discord when Geet comes to know the truth
but she will have the demand the truth from Maan rather than run away
again (showing progress in their relationship
). Even that can be handled in a comic way in which Geet banishes Maan to the couch
and turns him completely despo to tell his side of the story.
Ultimately he gets fed up, corners her and tells her the whole story.
Then hubby-wifey make up and decide to face the problem together.
