Ranjit as we know is a genuine fellow. In his company he is at a very responsible post. It is his responsibility to deal with the salesgrils. As we know Salesgirls have the single agenda when they visit any potential (possible) customer. To sell (and to sell maximum) of the products/services her company send her to promote and sell. Ranjit have to check the genuineness of the claims made by the salesgirl about the product/service she come representing.
Vinod was jealous of Ranjit as he got the opportunity to deal with many girls (as his job profile make him do so). Once he asked Ranjit to give him chance. Ranjit also want to get a break from this highly responsible task (to evaluate the offer made by the salesgirl and find the genuineness of the same. And to decide whether his company should go for that product/service or not. He was happy to hand over this responsibility (50%) to Vinod, so he can concentrate more on his other duties. Vinod’s sole aim was to flirt with those girls of course.
However the next Salesgirl who is directed to Vinod’s cabin made him feel seek. Vinod ready to flirt with and expecting a charming lady was almost shocked by seeing an aged lady came visit him! One day when discussing stuffs at home with Renu and Raja, Ranjit teased Renu by telling and demonstrating her that he flirts with the salesgirls who approach his company (and have to deal with him then).
These false claims made for teasing by Ranjit were enough to irk jealousy in Renu. She decided to be a Salesgirl for her bank and to get positive favors for the same (from Ranjit’s company). It will not only make her boss happy, but also may result into her job-promotion (and salary hike) . Ranjit however was against the idea.
In current times when online marketing emerged as one of the best marketing options along with telemarketing and other solutions, people may find the idea of salesgirl a bit out-of-place. Though, still companies (no matter big or small) hire sales executives, marketing executives etc. whose job is to promote the product and/or service their company offers and convince people to use it. The economy-world is not much different.
So, Renu encounters as a Salesgirl in Ranjit’s company (with Ranji and Vinod) is the stuff to come in rest of the episode.
Satish, Swaroop, Shafi and Rakesh all are seasoned actors and their work is definitely up-to-the mark. If Swaroop can work a little more on her dialog delivery, it would be fantastic. The comic timings of the actors is fantastic. Tiku Talsaniya have a small role. Some of the supportive cast member (Eg. peon in Ranjit’s office) had not delivered what expected from them. But overall, it is a good combination of work performance, which you will like. The content is simple and it power lies in the simplicity. The dialogs are witty. The background music adds to the positive of the serial. The DVD quality may have been better, but based on the technologies available those days, we cannot expect better digitization for the same.
Overall, a value for money/time episode.
