It’s quite amusing to watch Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi these days. The show till now is moving forward quite practically. So here’s my tit bits about the current episodes –
Last night, especially, I could not help but laugh seeing Ishwari. The lady has absolutely no faith on her dear son now when it comes to Sonakshi. She knows he lied once, and thinks that he can lie again. So she is all set to accompany them to the doctor and doesn’t want to leave them alone even during tests. Forget that. Now she is suddenly not at all worried about Neha’s feelings. Now that she needs a grandchild, she can send off both to honeymoon without thinking ‘Mera beta mere bina kaise rahega’ or ‘Neha ko kitna bura lagega’. So much for a baby who still doesn’t exist! I wonder why Ishwari is regarded as a God in the show by Dev. To me she looks like a typical mother in law from my neighbourhood!
Just because she had a difficult life after her husband’s death doesn’t make her a God. There are many single mothers in the world and I don’t think all of them act or react like Ishwari does. But I have known some mothers who have husbands alive, but still they react like Ishwari does. It’s just that I am little bit tired of this God like attachment to her name.
And I am desperately waiting for the pre-nup drama hoping that will help Dev see that he indeed is his mother’s son and that she indeed is his mother. Genes talk you see. Both lied to each other due to their own fears and insecurities. Dev lied thinking his mother would take Sona away from him and Ishwari lied thinking Sona will take away Dev and his property from her. How ironical!
About Sonakshi. Well, the girl is in shock. For those people who are still blaming her, it’s not easy for a girl to suddenly become a rebel. The revelation has jolted her and she is yet to cope up with the harsh truth. Till now, her husband has asked her to ‘try’ only and her mother in law has asked her ‘to be hopeful’. She herself wants to become a mother and hence, she is ready to accept the fertility treatment.
The pros and cons of the situation is yet to be revealed in front of her. She is yet to go through the pain of humiliation. Women, in general, are always ever ready to do everything for a person who claim to love them. And currently, Sona is doing all this thinking that she is still loved and that she is doing it for her own family. Quite selfless she is. But she still didn’t get the hint of the selfishness of the Dixits. And until that strikes her hard, retaliation from her side would have to wait.
About Dev. Well, I remember one of my friend telling me a certain line told to her by her father long time ago. I feel it’s very apt for Dev somehow. To love someone, you not only need a big heart, but courage to do so as well. Dev, fortunately has a very big heart to love but he lacks courage in love, especially in front of his mother.
Don’t take decisions if you can’t handle the consequences in a decent way. Don’t take decisions, if you can’t stand by them and own your mistakes.
None of his decisions were selfish nor they were bad. It’s just that he is unable to handle the consequences strongly. For a person like Dev, who has difficulties in keeping his emotions in check and has a twisted kind of wiring inside his head, making decisions without consulting can create huge errors. And we know, his saying that he is responsible for his decisions, isn’t going to save Sona’s neck forever. His decisions will always have an inverse reaction on Sonakshi. Especially when his God, doesn’t expect him to take big decisions of his life without telling her. To her, he is still an 8 year old. And an 8 year old isn’t supposed to make or take decisions.
Lastly, about the spoiler of Dev hitting Bijoy accidentally. Well, that’s something I would like to see how Dev redeems himself. I would like to see how Sonakshi reacts to it and I would want Sona to ask Dev if he would have forgiven her as easily if she by mistake did the same with Ishwari. Mr. Dev Dixit has a problem. He does everything in the heat of the moment. Let’s list out his heat of the moment actions –
1. He realises he is in love. Breaks ties to Natasha. Goes to propose Sonakshi at 2 am in the night.
2. Witnesses mom at the hospital. Tells Sonakshi to go away. Breaks ties with her.
3. Witnesses Sonakshi with another man. Decides to ruin his career. Anyhow, to not let Sonakshi get married. But doesn’t know what to do after that.
4. Mom says to bring Sonakshi back. Dev goes and tells Sona, mom wants you back. Let’s patch up. No realisation of the blunder he did.
5. Doctor says Sona can’t become pregnant. Lie to everyone so that no one knows and get married without any issues. No need to think about future implications.
6. Gets to know about false pregnancy of Sonakshi. Creates an impression that she is really pregnant without thinking how he will handle everything once truth is out.
7. In a difficult state and uncontrollable situation. Doesn’t know how to make his family understand how and why he invested in Saurabh’s business. Mom in bad state. So in the heat of the moment, hit your own father in law.
None of the decisions above are wrong. They are humane and right for that moment probably (barring a few of course!). But where Dev goes wrong is that he gets weak when it comes to own his decisions and stand up to them or show enough courage to execute them successfully. And also, one should never forget, once you commit a mistake, it’s ok. But if you keep committing the same mistakes, then you are no wise man. Dev’s mistakes are very repetitive.
It’s a fact. Always an ‘I Love you’ isn’t enough. In reality, proving those three words by your actions is much more difficult than simply saying them 10 times a day.
Note – This article is dedicated to one of my great friend Surya Ravi. It’s her father’s words that spring into my head today while writing this piece. So thank you to uncle. He is probably one of those real life Bijoy Bose out there!
