Even if no one's reading this, have to post.
So badly want to jump about saying I told you so...*restrains self *, but no I wont.
The sarcasm laced rage and the denial mode is so typical Dutta. I had said he would do the erupting act, a la Vesuvius and man, did he live up to expectations!!!!!
Of late, this Dutta was missing big time. The original leather bound edition of him exploding like cluster bombs at the slightest pretext. Please don't ever domesticate this man, please, please (refer to book POV of a selfish viewer).
Have to go check for cracks in the earth near Patil Wadi. Don't know if the earth actually shattered. The NAKUSHAAA scream was blood curdling though. Now I know why this Mulga has curd even at two in the night.
Dutta's reactions today have justified the secrecy Naku and Baji were trying to maintain. Is it just his loyalty for Nanasaheb or is it the alpha male ego as well? When will this guy ever learn to listen first and then react?? The day he does, he won't have to rue..."Aaj tak bataaya hi hai kya kisine mujhe"...He must understand, people keep the truth from him either out of fear or a sense of over protectiveness as I believe is the case here. Because whenever things are not to his liking or in his control Dutta reacts either with rage or self destructive tendencies.
Then again if he comes down to being reasonable he will cease to be Dutta.
Well despite the misconstrued comments which Elysia will unfailingly come up with, I have to say this...
Oh Nanasaheb, what a master stroke!!!!
Does this man know a thing or two about hitting below the belt or what!!!! In the last episode I was waylaid by his fashion sense again. I mean teaming up tan with Gold embroidery and Bappi da chains is so cool. Then he puffs up his eyes to match the entire look...and its not just his attire...look at his taste in furniture...matching ottomans, Victorian dressers, tall glass (i'm sure set in an engraved mahogany frame), that queen sized bed must be having four posters attached, he's even opted for an antique television set!!!! I mean that has to be custom made!!
And then the absolute numbing viciousness of his plan...sending the piece of Naku's torn saree to Dutta... Hits him right in the solar plexus draining all air without Nanasaheb having to lift a single finger. And the wording of the letter...so crisp a threat, so sophisticatedly uncouth...'Yeh chota sa tohfa teri Patni ke Daman ka'...hinting could have violated Naku so badly. Then taunting Dutta with ...'Apni patni per bhi ek nazar rakh'.
Nanasaheb knew Dutta would go hopping mad and even if Baji and Naku try telling him the truth, Dutta would simply refuse to associate something so vulgar with the man he considers his idol. Oh he was so right. Dutta simply obliged and followed his script.
Darn! why doesn't it occur to him that (neither) his wife (read Naku, nor his life Baji) is not prone to hallucinating?
Actually unknowingly Naku has done Nanasaheb a favour. His sole goal is to see Dutta robbed of his dignity, and Naku has just handed him an opportunity on a silver platter.
Loved Baji today. Vinay's silent helpless act was sooo good to see. Dutta actually pulled him up and threw him forward!!!! Oh God! Reminded of so many D-N gussa scenes.
Today brought back the Baji ji ke vahini ji Bar scene of the trio. Thanks for touching upon the memories
Somehow I always knew Dutta wouldn't repeat the mistake of slapping her. He learnt a hard lesson last time and good to see he learnt it well.
(Also guess he didn't want to go bash up his hand later on, saves a lot of trouble, pain and Naku's Pallu. The last being in mortal danger already from 'unknown' enemies).
But that ear bursting din from the copper thali was no less violent than a slap!!!!!!
(He created a mess with the sindoor and haldi too. And AS just stood there not once admonishing him. She should have said...'Dutta, chillana bandh. Jao pocha le ke aao aur ye saaf karo', like any strong willed mother. But she just never seems to find the words to tell him off properly.
Actually AS needs to upgrade her vocabulary fast. Her once potent lines, like 'Ye kya ho raha hai yahan' / Kya hai Dutta? Naku? Ye sab,' have with repeated use lost their sting and fail to make impact these days).
Now pre cap seems to give Baji a hard time all over again. I mean Dutta, why can't you appreciate his selfless, silent love for once?
Naku is finally back to her Lion taming ways. Lets see how she handles breaking the truth to him. I mean whatever technique she tries, there's no way she can do it gently.
MR as usual held us mesmerized by his performance (wonder if all that neck twisting gives him a kink, and do the jaws hurt from clasping and clamping? But boy was he awesome!!!!), and MV again showed why she is his perfect foil. All that fire power tackled with just as much gentle determination and quiet gumption!!!!
Eagerly awaiting Episode 342...Bring it on.
At the risk of sounding repetitive,
