When the angry young, Man Maan Singh Khurana met the damsel in distress Geet Handa, sparks flew & a love story was born!
On April 5th 2010, a brand new television soap was launched on TV and the show was not just launched but it crusaded and won over the hearts of the viewers. The show was Geet Hui Sabse Parayi on Star One. As the name suggests, the story revolved around its female lead protagonists Geet Handa (Drashti Dhami). Now if there is a heroine there ought to be a hero too right? And the hero was Maan Singh Khurana (Gurmeet Choudhary).
The two were complete strangers to each other. Their worlds were opposite. But what happens when opposites collide? As a result of the collision, emotions of hate, anger, pain, trust, love came along and this was the story of Maan and Geet. Two people, who were as different as chalk and cheese yet they were like ‘Ink and Pen’ with each other, seemed to be incomplete without each other.
The circumstances in which Maan and Geet met were not a bed of roses, they met and they had their share of disagreements, differences and arguments too. But every single time the two of them met, it was as though a unknown bond is pulling them towards one another. Life is never a fairy-tale. Geet ended up getting married to Maan’s younger brother Dev (Abhinav Shukla / Samir Sharma). The twist in the tale was that Dev was already married and his marriage with Geet was just to dupe the Handa’s and leave with the money leaving behind a newlywed bride Geet.
Well, if you think that was all Geet faced, then think again. Tragedy struck as Geet was pregnant with her one day husband’s kid. Her family being the conservative one, wanted her to abort her child and keep the whole wedding under wraps. Geet on the other hand wanted to keep her child and thus when Brij [Behzaad Khan (Geet’s brother)] tries to kill her, Maan Singh Khurana arrives and ends up saving her, typically giving the impression of the perfect ‘Knight in shining armour’.
If you think after Maan saving Geet, the two of them became best of friends, then the answer is no. After the saving issues, clash of opinions made the two go separate ways. If you are wondering then how did Maan and Geet’s actual story start and how it progressed into undying love, then it all came back when Geet left her family behind and moved to Delhi and landed up in a job as Maan Singh Khurana’s secretary.
Sounds interesting right? We think so too. Geet and Maan’s story was always like expect the unexpected. It was unique. Working under the same roof and living in close quarters, once again the two personalities were bound to clash and erupt into umpteen number of fights. Whether their arguments were silly or meaningful, it became a part of their lives. In every sense, even during their disagreements they understood each other. It was the beginning of a beautiful bond.
If there are lead protagonists then for sure there have to be antagonists too. Even in Maan and Geet’s story there were people who did not want them together, there were people who plotted, schemed against them. At times it was fate against them, at times it was their ill-wishers against them, but every single time these two were separated, they came back together with a greater vigour and stronger love. Yes, there were misunderstandings between the two but yet the two of them always found each other again and their love bounced back.
The show and the characters had ups and downs yet their love story was unique and it set them apart from the existing counterparts. Their chemistry sizzled and burned the TV screens every single time. Drashti Dhami and Gurmeet Choudhary with their perfect portrayals of Maan and Geet swooned over the viewers’ hearts.
In case of Maan-Geet it was always like whether they fight, argue, cry or in love, whatever the situation is, they cannot exist without the other. They complete each other. At the end of the day they were each other’s support system and world. It was as if when the two of them were together, the world ceased to exist.
Towards the end of the show when Maan lost his memory and forgot about Geet, then too Maan and Geet found love all over again and it made people believe in the power of love.
Filled with purity and essence of true love in every inch, Maan and Geet’s love story is etched in many hearts even today and such love stories will always be remembered.
Fans of the show and the actors wish even today that Geet Hui Sabse Parayi comes with a brand new season with the same actors portraying the leads. Such was the perfection with which Gurmeet and Drashti essayed their respective characters.
