Suhasini has to visit Singapore due to some business stuff and hence her mother was at the Deewan house to take care of all. She is taking her duty to take care for all very seriously and her first victim was Sanju. Sanju was forced to drink milk (Which he obviously doesn’t like). Kareema was enjoying this moment and helped Suhasini’s mother (called fondly Nani – the mother’s mother – maternal grandmother) by dragging Sanju to the dining table.
Kirti was ready to go somewhere and was passing by the dining table when she saw Sanju drinking milk! How can she control herself for not teasing him? But her joyful moments were no more fun for her when she was also forced to drink the milk. The witty dialogs between Sanju, Kirti, Kareema and Nani are really nice.
Sunita, who was taking care of Suhasini’s beauty parlor was having a busy day as well. As handling customers at the beauty parlor is not an easy joy. You need to take care of everyone and their mood. She asked Kareema to do a task for her. However the shooting of orders is started for Kareema and everyone gave him different instructions. Now Kareema is in dilemma that he should follow whom?
Sunita comes to his rescue and get him the list of instructions prioritized.
Sunita’s mother enters the Deewan house. She seems to be frequent visitor of the home and hence the kids (and the young fellows too) were making fun of her. But, when she told that she came from HongKong directly and she has some gifts for everyone. The kids were all hanged up to her. She was fondly known as Chhoti Nani (Younger Maternal Grand Mother) by them.
By the conversation between Nani and Chhoti Nani we gotta know that both were at the extreme end. They both trying to prove that she is better than the other and doesn’t let any chance to taunt each other. The dialogs here are funny and witty of course. Even Kareema is having his own take on Chhoti Nani. When Nani asks Chhoti nani that Kareema always be within limits with her, Chhoti nani responds that as she is very friendly, Kareema has good bond with her! Seem, they (Nani and Chhoti Nani) will never be changed, and so does their relations!
Chhoti Nani then meets her daughter and as usual asked her about her health and all. She also found her daughter got thinner. She want her to be healthy and was worried about her weight loss. When she asked her daughter Sunita about the same, she told that she likes to be thinner as Sameer likes her that way. She don’t want her husband to be unhappy anyway. When Chhoti Nani asked that don’t give too much importance to your husband, otherwise it will be dangerous for you and your future! Sunita was not happy. Also Nani asked Chhoti Nani to not to give such advise to the child. The answer Chhoti Nani gave is again hillarious.
But it is the fact that a lot of time (not always – there are mother who keep the relationships healthy and give proper advise and the bond between not only her daughter and son in law but both families goes even stronger… hats off to them.) its the mother (and sometimes other relatives) of a girl keeps feeding wrong information and attitude in her and not let her settle down in her own family (her husband and all). What a stupid act that is.
Both of them were thinking that their respective daughters were innocent and they doesn’t know about the man’s desire for spiced up love affairs. So they were superstitiously watching the behavior of their own daughter and son-in-law to see if they can find anything wrong is there.
Sameer came happily at home and was dancing. He was in the impression that somehow her mother-in-law was unable to come. But, his happiness was having short life as his mother-in-law (Chhoti Nani) was already there. The dialogs here are funny too. BTW: Now both the elder ladies (Nani and Chhoti Nani) are going to keep an eye on the family members, will they be able find that any of their respective son-in-laws found having an extra-marital affair or doing something wrong? It would be interesting to see the full episode, to know the answer.
The comic timings of all the cast members are great and so does their acting. The writing (especially dialogs) are really excellent. This is a genuine good watch. (And some lessons to learn – that to not to interfere in someone else’ personal life – are there as well).
