La's heart was breaking and the echo can be heard everywhere...There was just no way to not feel it...Sana did an excellent job emoting today...and as much as what ever Arnav did was perfectly justifiable from a western point of view...that looks at things in a more individualistic way...from an Indian point of view where family is more important than the individuals' feelings...where relationships are not created to be broken...where you don't get to choose again and again ...this was a train wreck...
Kudos to the CVs for bringing out the contrast in these values so strongly so poignantly...
All of R family felt like they are guilty ...They participated in the crime unknowingly...They felt entitled to an explanation...They didn't get it...Was Arnav justifiable in doing what he did? Yes...he was! But was the R family justified in feeling like he was walking all over them...yes they were too!!
One thing Arnav has taken a long time in understanding is that ...every action has a consequence...Every relationship has an impact...Decisions are not isolated...when something reckless is done...every one feels the consequence...and just like Khushi said...many episodes back...Sorry kehne se sachchai nahi badlati...Feeling guilty only goes so far...When a heart breaks...you can not stop the bleeding...
So who is goingto hold him accountable? Nani and Anjali...he can outpower...The only person who can match him is Khushi...And ...boy does she feel angry...I can understand why...She like others feels La was taken for a ride (and the family too)...a ride which did not get to its destination...has no chance of getting to its destination... As much as we know what has caused this break up...her anger is fully justified...As honest an action it was...what Arnav did was took La along a journey that he was not going to complete...Even though he did not know at the time that he wasn't going to do it...he did know that he wasn't marrying La for love...he was reacting to something else...She got burned in the process of Arnav discovering himself...
Really waiting to see tomorrow's episode...This was surely a 9.5/10 episode!!
As always will appreciate your comments/ feed-back!!
Loved this post ... and loving all the replies here
I think the basic thing today was Arnav learning that his decisions have consequences,
and decisions made in anger have consequences that turn back to bite not only him, but others as well, his family as well as innocent bystanders
- for La was nothing more than that in this whole show. First wrong decision made due to anger with Nani and her hounding him for marriage - get La for live -in. Next few wrong decisions all because of Khushi - first the announcement to marry La, then the engagement date ... and now he is facing the consequences - for himself,
the thought of being tied for life to a girl he doesn't love, doesn't even care much for except as a friend ... for his family,
the loss of face, the talk and gossip ... and their own hurt - they all accepted La for HIS sake, encouraged her to change, encouraged those changes and now are genuinely fond of La themselves ... and the consequences for La,
of course - heartbreak, and the feeling that she changed herself so much for someone who doesn't even care, she was just a pawn in his duel with Khushi, or with his feelings for Khushi ... for Khushi
, am not even going there yet.
SO he has to cut the knot
- it has become too entangled to undo - and there is huge collateral damage ... everyone around him is hurt ... he manages to stall everyone, even Nani ... but it was interesting that there was actual apprehension in his eyes when he saw La and Khushi together, realised that Khushi knew, and he knew he would have to face her. Whatever else he is prepared to acknowledge, he does know that Khushi has become his conscience keeper of sorts and he will have a tough time justifying his actions to her.
Surprisingly, or maybe not surprisingly -
Arnav seems to have NO doubt about Khushi's right to ask him those questions! In fact he fully expects her to!
My question - when will Arnav realise all the consequences of his actions vis-a-vis Khushi? Will take a longer while, I guess.
I want to comment on some of the other comments too ... fab replies here! But I want to say, I LOVED the way the whole disclosure was done - the Raizadas in private, La and Khushi in private .. and the dignity and family unity held firm in public
- which is the way it would be done in real life, and unlike many of the usual soaps, where everything is done with full drama in front of hundreds of people, clanging b/g music and millions of close-ups of shocked faces ... for this, the PH deserves a round of applause
And am equally glad the Arshi confrontation tomorrow will also be in private in their usual trysting spot hidden by the Bermuda triangle as usual!
