I enjoyed the episode mostly because it was bittersweet with minimum amount of drama. Also, it was pretty layered, like you have analysed it already. And analysed it so well, may I add. It is interesting that they picked this fairytale. Of course, it brings the complexity of Arnav and Khushi's relationship pretty well, but it is also one of those odd fairytales, a departure from the usual Disneyish blah, you know - of girls in white satin dresses and shiny-faced dudes dancing at balls.

Belle, the beauty is of course beautiful (duh), but what sets her apart in the Disney universe is her oddballness. You know all princesses kind of fit in easily, but not Belle, everyone thinks of her as slightly kookie, in fact. So I am super impressed if the writers considered this and picked Khushi as Belle, the Beauty. Also in the original tale, Belle has some serious daddy issues, I can't explain what, but there is something there. And I think Khushi too, sort of misses a father figure in her life and has complexity around it. And Belle is offered to the beast as sacrifice, she does it for her family. And she doesn't really complain. Wow! Now it all neatly falls into place, yes? Belle is not perfect like other princesses but she has one quality that sets her apart from the rest, she is not shallow at all. And that is why she can see beyond the unsightly and the outwardness, and is thus drawn to the beast. And I think when the times comes, it is this quality of Belle that will make Arnav win her favour again.

Arnav of course is the perfect beast - cut-off from the world, alone and harboring a painful secret that NOBODY is let into. Not even his beloved Di. And I think this is where this seeming to be fairytale takes a poignant turn. Even though the beast is completely against the idea of Belle finding that rose and forbids her from finding it -- because he is, you know, just scared, yet in his heart, he wishes that she finds it and still stays. I think this is pretty much why Arnav won't confront Khushi about Shyam. That is the one truth she is being denied, mostly because he doesn't want to be rejected by her. Where brother ended and where lover began, I don't think Arnav has realised that yet :)

I completely love this one scene where Beast says, O, it is hopeless. She is so beautiful... and look at me. Ah, that excruciating moment of self-doubt. And Mrs Potts says, O, hush and straighten up. Go forth and smile at her. I am imagining Anjali as Mrs Potts. But when Arnav realises this same thing later, he will let his Belle go. Because before the Dinsyefication of this tale, that is what happened. It is the most painful thing that the Beast had to do and perhaps might be the most painful thing Arnav will do too.

I personally don't relate to this story anymore -- perils of my now left-liberal education, but until I was 15-16 this story was quite a favourite, it was good to meet it again today. Sorry, now I am just rambling.

Also this Optimal Maami Time is working well for me and I find her in small doses rather delightful. One of these days I plan to do a video post on Shit Maamiji Says (inspired by that awesome meme. This one is my newest favourite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLRuM8jWH2M&feature=fvwrel)

Today itself there were two gems:
"Lagat hain woh Phatti Saari sochat rahi jab tak ooke personal bachein nahin ho jaayein, doosron ke bachon ke saath man bahlaya jayein."
"Naya business: Phatti Saari aur Chillar Party. Hello Hi Bye Bye."

Wow, your review makes me wanting to see the episode again. I really loved Khushi's standing true to her decisions and making Arnav realize that he can not always control her. The duality of Arnav here is questioned and I feel that somewhere he might be realizing it.What I really loved today was the sisters acceptance as part of the Raizada family and Arnav diving into his childhood whims and fancies.All put together it was agood episode and then review was like cherry on top.Smile
it was a good one...and the boundaries that he sets are always given so much of importance...but the limits she sets are so silent and subtle yet firm...i love that about her ...he is learning...learning about how to respect her...how to toe the line...learning that he can only control her so much...learning about her invincible spirit...about the raizadas..and the sisters...they are proving to be a good family for the girls..very supporting..and understanding and appreciative too..about mami she is like summer storms...unpredictable...
