Finally watched the epi that expectedly awakened this otherwise dry on discussion forum.. loads of perspectives, uproars and speculations kept aside.. the episode for me was a classic case of old habits die hard.. but before i go on my tangent.. I have a rationale doubt.. I had asked Ashu this a while back when I was catching up on the show.. what does Virat do for living?LOL today I had a similar question.. not that m bipolar or slow.. but really What does Manvi do in life? Like do.. LOL I had presumed if jeevika was a teacher and Manvi 3 yrs younger she shld be in college.. but there is no mention of it.. forget that the young girl wakes up on time to make lunch.. whats her vocation.. 

the missing link here may be the answer for a lot of erratic things.. well typical hindi show exaggeration prevailing.. where they almost show Manvi unable to live an hr without Jeevika's verbal presence at least.. needing to consult her etc.. one major blooper in this premise is Jeevika was a working girl.. who was a teacher.. full time would mean 8 hrs.. so Manvi had to make do without her presence for at least that time.. and couldnt call her every now and then at her convenience.. coz face it dude.. hitler or no hilter.. professional world cares a damn about your personal life. .and its special needs..LOL 

secondly if Manvi were invested towards a career or studies wont that help take her mind off the dependency.. or for that matter pursuing something on her own will give her that added individuality.. I know am trying to make logical sense in a feel good show.. so I move on..

Ok so coming to the epi.. like I said old habits die hard.. Manvi needing an excuse to call Jeevika.. recipe today.. something else tomorrow.. LOL another thing that struck me as odd is early morning before the men leave for work.. all women are mostly busy in tending to their needs.. whether its husbands or children we have grown up seeing our moms occupied in our morning requisites to even think of anything else.. so Swamini's orientation tour was ill timed as was Manvi's call.. mom didn't entertain any calls till we were all gone.. and she was alone.. oh well.. so I was saying.. 

this whole scenario emanated due to bad timing.. and the damage done more so by Jeevika.. she got so excited that she picked up the call while Swamini was speaking and hadnt finished her sentence.. bad manners.. I know if I had struck a convo with a friend while my folks were on something imp with me.. I'll get it royallyLOL in Js defense she excused herself eventually.. but Swamini had found her pet peeve by then.. and that woman doesnt need one after the mention of ManuLOL her tantrum throwing with the 3 in attention position was howlarious.. completely reminded me of the hum angrezo ke zamane ke jailor hainLOL in her defense tho no matter how seriously she takes herself.. she doesnt lack proportion.. even at her angriest.. she wasnt rude per se to Jeevika.. but she did huff n puff and leave so much so that she forgot her dahi routine with Viren... interesting..Wink

speaking of the devil...LOL pray tell me how do you ignore a devil that wears prada.. I mean.. how exactly was Jeevika so awkward and unmoved after  a peek of that well sculpted body.. ok hormones aside.. a thing of beauty is a joy forever.. ROFL so on those grounds I wld be elated to have hit jackpot.. a husband who is extremely low maintenance.. ready to pamper me.. a LAWYER.. with a toned body and rather decent looks.. the woman needs to get some reality check.. and not run away everytime here..LOL esp from a man who is so freaking independent.. trust me thats an oxymoron right there.. very few of those species are trained well enough to fend for themselves.. which brings me to the old habits die hard case 3 after JM and Swamini.. our Mr. Vadera the young lawyer has been trained and bred by none other than Ms Law and Order Swamini to totally take care of himself.. and in some ways be the perfectionist.. you can see it in the face he makes when he sees the orange shirt..LOL and Vanshika re-iterated how he doesnt really abide by other's choices when it comes to certain things.. I am totally like that.. no compromise on convictions.. and LOVED how in spite of being a ball of mush for his newly wed wife he softly yet strongly concurred that if he has erred she will have to learn to forgive him..quite a statement there our man.. Big smile me likes subtle assertion.. 

I defo liked Vanshika's little piece of advice to find middle ground with each other.. which they will have no doubts on that.. esp from Viren.. Virat's dig at rule no 48 from dadaji was funny..LOL so was our naughty lover boy.. who teased his wife at the physical proximity just to see that look on her face.. i knew he had no intention to kiss her in the middle of the living room... when he could hardly achieve much in the private confines.. but in that scene.. esp the eye shots of both.. KT excelled.. his eyes gave away the extreme fondness.. and affection that has the ability to melt glaciers.. KD looked really nice in green and in spite of her eyes being one of her best asset.. I found the expressions wanting.. either they are just too confusing or less relatable.. I cant handle baseless coyness after a while.. a little mischief is everyone's right..

cant end before I added the last old habits die hard case in point.. Dabbu being bullied into the kitchen by ManuLOL. poor guy I feel for him.. just how obedient is he.. everytime Manu has to do some chore Dabbu is by default her help..then again please explain why all the women at Hrishikesh decide to sit and twiddle fingers and not even help supervise.. esp Beeji.. again I get back to if Jeevika was working.. does that mean she had to wake up super early to make everyone's lunch before heading to work.. woahhh.. I think she has less work and more pleasure (pun intended) at Chandigarh as of nowLOL

that should be it for the ramble of the day.. the field is all yours now

haha...
For that matter even chacha ji just sits at home most of the time...wonder what the choudhary's hv as a source of their income...i mean virat is understandable...like he can loaf around the whole day and listen to swamini's sermons when required but dude...the chaudhary's need a bread earner!

jeevika n the phone call...had made a mental note to include it in my post...completely forgot...that was really rude...
i mean i found that entire situation weird...and forced...mannvi didn't HAVE to call jeevika...jeevika didn't HAVE to pick up the call...Swamini was ok...I sorta understood...not that am saying her reaction was right...but am saying that's how most jobless mothers in law react right...and it was justified to a certain extent...my bro was sitting with me playing on his PSP when i was watching the epi and he looked up and out of the blue said "why doesn't she just put it on silent!" 

I had issues with Jeevika not looking at Viren..i mean she didn't even try to steal a glance...like i said woman loosen up!

that's all...my hands are freezing...sorry for the bad punctuation but it sorta breaks my flow while typing!

awesome as ever, sonali- ur reviews are better than the show itself Wink. and i completely agree with:
KD looked really nice in green and in spite of her eyes being one of her best asset.. I found the expressions wanting.. either they are just too confusing or less relatable.. I cant handle baseless coyness after a while.. a little mischief is everyone's right..


like seriously, they need to move the track- i am tired of watching the coyness.


and for me this drams is lacking little subtleties, nuances that MB had (had to bring MB in, didn't I LOL)-  manvi doesnt go to college, virat is not trying to resurrect his career, beeji sits like a maharani when the poor girl who has never cooked is slogging off in the kitchen, chachu just goes out to buy vegetables - like come on, they are testing our patience and common sense here.
right now, its like a typical saas-bahu show without an ounce of logic in it. you want to show manvi's dependence on jeevika, do it in a sensible and believable way; please!

the only source of income we have gathered apart from Jeevika's teacher job.. is Badi Beeji's pension moneyROFLROFL I guess Chacha has some random business that needs him after lunch only..or may be he is paid to be  the shopper.. who shops for groceries for the whole neighbourhoodLOL.. oh yeah.. Virat can so be a vella.. but thats thing establish it.. but there's some mystery there.. so I'll wait for nowLOL

jeevika n the phone call...had made a mental note to include it in my post...completely forgot...that was really rude...

that whole situation was W*Fish.. I mean clearly Swamini made sense.. this was just habitual of Manvi.. if recipe is the real reason send her a book.. ask yer family to help.. if not dude every recipe can be extract on the internet.. she pissed me off with there are no tea spoons only table spoons line too... seriously If I had to deal with a partner, colleague or a sibling of this order.. I wld lose it rather often.. and it was rather thoughtless of the chaudhrys to let Manvi call J that early in the morning.. i mean Viren hadnt even left for work yet.. basic manners dude..LOL call her when she is velli after lunch.. or something.. 

I had issues with Jeevika not looking at Viren..i mean she didn't even try to steal a glance...like i said woman loosen up!
I know eh.. LOL the woman does have hormones right.. tad bit bhi chalega.. I mean come on.. u avoid the man like plague.. I thought you liked him.. she showed more interest in him before marriage.. even let him hold her hand when they were courting.. now when he does.. she tries moving it away.. regression much.LOL seriously dont get the soap heroine deal.. 

that's all...my hands are freezing...sorry for the bad punctuation but it sorta breaks my flow while typing! chill we aint in grammar class.. LOL n I aint no swamini.. WinkLOL

Okay so let me just treat this place where I can vent a little about today's episode, as well as comment on a few other things.

As much as JM are close, inseparable, etc. I really am not fond of this entire calling-all-the-time thing. Maanvi is one thing, but Jeevika is older, mature, and she is married, has a family now. Both of them really need to just sit down and sort it out that they won't stop talking, but they have to limit themselves. It's not the end of the world, if they don't talk 24/7. Let alone Viren's family, but Jeevika has a HUSBAND now...who loves her immensely! Which brings me to m 2nd point here...
 
Oh em gee..gimme a break from Jeevika's coyness...when will she give in?! I'm not saying give in completely and show us on screen, but Jeevika needs to give into the fact that they're married now...yes, being shy is one thing, going overboard with the shyness and not opening upto your husband is another. Bechara Viren is already getting disappointed bar bar...with all the interruptions, be it his upset stomach, lunch time call, mandir visit, or his cold.
 
Lastly, I know Swamini is a grey character, in the sense that she's very strict and hates Manvi without a reason, ANYWAY. But without being bias, I feel that her anger today was totally valid. As I mentioned earlier, Jeevika needs to set a limit on how much the sisters will interact, she's not in her maika anymore and somethings just have to change. It's the reality of life. Instead of making a big deal out of it, they can accept and be HAPPY about it that Jeevika's is happily married.
 
I'm sorry if I offend anyone. Nothing that I said was intended to bash anyone...all of it is pure opinion for the sake of this discussion.

like seriously, they need to move the track- i am tired of watching the coyness.

am rather entertained and amused by Viren... coz there's variety there.. layers intrigue me.. unidimensional is utmost blah.. Jeevika needs to have more variety and range in her personality.. you would think nothing other than Manvi interests her so much.. LOL like even yest on the bed.. when they guy is trying so hard and sneezing away.. respond.. at least talk.. do something.. dont lie like a plum pudding.. LOL their communication is even less than it used to be before.. well i hope its just a phase.. 

and for me this drams is lacking little subtleties, nuances that MB had (had to bring MB in, didn't I LOL)-  manvi doesnt go to college, virat is not trying to resurrect his career, beeji sits like a maharani when the poor girl who has never cooked is slogging off in the kitchen, chachu just goes out to buy vegetables - like come on, they are testing our patience and common sense here.

ROFL I cldnt help myself either.. but compare Devki's first day and Jeevika's.. the space and privacy and independence D got.. in spite of the compromise marriage was amazing man.. I mean VD had their private tea session.. charu didnt care for anything or anyone till IMV left or got ready and she finished her meditation..Rajvi was involved with Sid and Gaurav..  they all met for breakfast and they were all gone into their respective lives etc.. and the women bonded after that..and D wld take off to work too.. now thats normal.. wth is wid d waderas and chaudhry's.. Vanshika overhears a couple convo and jumps in to give her gyaan..LOL m like woman u just trespassed..LOL Swamini is being her law and order self at 7am.. let viren leave.. why does J need to be told to be by viren in the morning and see if he needs something.. isnt tht a given.. she wld have tea with him etc.. ROFL kadambari giving her spl tippani on manu convo.. when chachu is evidently getting ready for the day and shlok is probably on his way too.. what really does marriage mean to these ppl I am curious.. zilch companionship.. acc to dadaji everything has a time and day.. oh reallyLOL that way virat comes across as rather normal.. giving ppl the space they need.. coz he cant handle crowding.. is ghar mein to subah subah tamasha..LOL
