Srushhhy!! I think I have said this a thousand times but I loved this episode because it laid the foundation for the future!!
I might be wrong here but I don't think there was anything illicit going on between Dushy and Sudhi, I think he would just overstep the bounds of this devar bhaabhi relationship by flirting with her and getting all touchy feely but I don't think there was anything beyond that. Mind you...Sudhi can be the ultimate flirt what with her come hither looks and nakhras directed at Dushy! Jealous she was...well, firstly she was losing her flirt companion and secondly the girl she was losing her flirt companion to was better than her in every way. Gulaal was probably younger than Sudhi, had managed to win the heart of everyone in the house, was definitely a sweeter and better person and most of all...had become the object of everyone's fascination...
Loved the conversation between Dushy and his mother! Queen of taunts warring with the King of sarcasm! I know he is the anti hero here (won't call him the villain just yet) but when he was having fb's of Gullu...he did not have such an evil look...he looked like a man truly smitten though! Loved the way his eyes shifted to Sudhi when JK asked him if he had been to Gullu's room and I loved his quick sarcastic responses. He knows his mom well na? He knows that his mom likes seedhi baatein...so Dushy was laying it down for her as seedha as he could!! This was my fav part:
JK: Tu Gulaal ke kamre mai kyu gayaa thaa?
Dushy: Lagan kii baatn karne
JK: Lagan?? Kiskee lagan kii baath?
Dushy: Gulaal aur mera lagan...aur kiskaa lagan??
SMACK!! Bullseye...his laughter was pure evil sarcasm...almost like he was thinking - ho gayaa? can I go back to my fb's...
The scene where Gullu and Vasant find water still gives me goosebumps...something so surreal about that scene. The way they collapse...but the minute their fingers touch wet mud...its almost like an electricity passes through them...Vassy's expression is priceless. I don't have words for Vassy's gesture...he lets her break the ground one last time allowing HER to be the one who makes the water gush through! NOW THAT IS CHIVALRY! He wants her to finish what she started... Any other man would have hit the axe to the ground himself...but Vassy wanted her to do it. He just stood there calmly...made it look like..behind every successful woman, there is a man...It was the sweetest thing!
So Gullu has not eaten for days, is tired, hungry and on the verge of collapsing YET that smile does not leave her lips and her eyes do not leave Vasant, In fact, even when she closes her eyes...she sees Vasant and gets his fb's...this is what he meant to her...his happiness was her happiness. Kind of laid down the foundation for why she was so passionate about fulfilling his dreams and what they meant to her. I know this is going to sound cheesy but I loved the MP enacted the whole collapse...could she have made it look any more natural???
Sorry...I know this is a looong post but I really loved the epi...no dragging, no long unnecessary dialogues, no beating round the bush...she came to find water and she found it!!
Geesh: Love the comparisons as always...you capture the right moments and time them beautifully and Srushhhy...thanks for the caps. Truly make the story come alive!
