Let me be frank. When the episode began today, I rolled my eyes and threw my hands up in the air, exclaiming, “OH NO! They’re going to deviate from yesterday’s track again! This is just another filler episode with stupid antics. ” This deviation of track that I was thinking about was purely the hatred and pain visible in Arnav and Khushi’s eyes while looking at each other in yesterday’s episode. All that hurt and pain could surely not go away the next day! I had to eat crow by the middle today’s episode though. They had most certainly not lost focus of the track, rather they simply took another turn about and came back to it.
Today’s episode can be surmised in a few words thus: Nani and Anjali plan a honeymoon for the newly married couples in the Raizada house. They transform the house into an exotic hotel. Manorama and her husband greet the two couples as attendants, nani becomes the hostess, Shyam waits upon the couples while Anjali is the manger of the so called “Delhi main Bali” hotel. Fun filled atmosphere resides with Shantivan today. Anjali gifts a bouquet of white flowers to Payal and Akash. Arnav watches in anger while Shyam gifts a flower bouquet to Khushi and pretends to remember that Khushi loves red roses since his “rani sahiba” does so too. The couples are sent to their respected rooms to change and come back down for dance. Arnav is suprised when Khushi lets him use the bathroom to change clothes without any argument. Khushi’s reasoning? ” humain kya karna hain wo aap he batayenge.. toh hum karenge.” The dance follows. After the dance, the couples are guided to their “honeymoon suites”. Arnav and Khushi are locked in their honeymoon suite without phones or electricity. Arnav lights a match to see in the dark and falls atop Khushi on the bed by accident, causing a RV moment. Khushi warns him on time when he is in danger of burning his finger through the lit matchstick and he throws it away, but his laptop catches fire and Khushi panics.
Let us talk about the dance.. pure envy!
One could very visibly see and gasp at the emotions that were being brought out in the open while they danced. There was naught but anger, passion and a stamp of total possession. Barun portrays both the sides of this reel character so well! I am sure that Khushi would have felt hapless and utterly unable to resist even ASR in that mode..we have already seen how her senses get impacted when she dances with Arnav. Gone was Arnav from “Teri meri” dance ‘cos today was ASR’s turn. Khushi Kumari Gupta- Singh Raizada was a putty in his hands and that’s him being modest! Usage of the title song of the show was an added plus since most of the fans wanted it added one way or the other in the show. It is amazing how popular this song has become among all the IP fans and such is the impact of the song that even when the show has already completed 200 episodes, it can be added to the situation. This is no filler episode.. they continue from where they’d left off yesterday when ASR had said that he will tell her what she is supposed to do and say and left Khushi speechless. Thus today she does and says exactly that, ” humain kya karna hain wo aap he batayenge.. toh hum karenge.”
