As it is shown in one of the James Bond film very correctly, that the next big thing is not the gold, oil or land, but the water. Probably it can be the cause of some big wars (hopefully, there will be no wars). Of course 2/3rd of our planet is water, but all that is not available to use directly. That is what makes the difference.
The eleventh episode of the sitcom – Dekh Bhai Dekh is focused on the water problem! However the root of the problem and its solution were different, but the core is focused on one of the big issues, no two thoughts about the same.
The Diwan house was facing the shortage of water. It seemed to be major problem, as they all need remarkable amount of water for their daily need. Probably more than other similar middle class family, as they are used to have it. But, shortage of the water, makes Sarala Diwan to pass an order to use water on rational bases for all the family members, no exceptions.
Then everyone, in order to fulfil their personal need, tries stealing water. How they are accidently exposed to each other is a joy to watch. The only person who was enjoying this situation is no one else but Kareema – the manservent of the Diwan house. There are various reasons, that his duties of washing cloths and kitchen components – is highly reduced. Ditto with cleaning the floor using water. However the main source of his joy was something different. As he is the guardian of water usage in the home, he can sell it in black!!! Yeah, he took money from the family members and let them get extra bucket of water.
Sanju of course, needs to bathe a lot but he is not allowed to do that. However he found a girl in neighbour, as usual. Does that have to to do anything with this situation? Also, they got a new neighbour (Does the girl, who is Sanju’s latest crush, belongs to that family?) can be better answered watching the episode, for the sake of reader’s joy, we are controlling ourselves by spilling the beans here.
We must say the background music is an aid and the episode clearly explores a lot of problems masked by the funny situation, apart from the main water problem, that we discussed in the begining of this article. For example the way Kareema find his new source of income, shows us how the bribary system gets started. Everyone needs his/her bit of extra stuff and convinience. Those who can afford think to overcome the rule by paying some stuff. Those who make the rules found themselves above the rules. Those who are the guardians and responsible to get the rules followed, have their own interests. A really well thought and scripted material. Comic timings of the entire cast is great, mentioning a few name is injustice to the others.
Overall, an episode, you must watch, not only to tickle the funny bone within you, but there are more than that inside.
