All this stuff is answered when you watch the episode.
We must say Cinevistaas done a good job by bringing this nice and genuine TV show back to us. Though video quality is not as good as one is used to see nowadays. But who cares? Once the content is good, everything is good. And the simplicity and authenticity are the strongest pillars of the TV serial without a doubt. Parikshi Sahni, Radha Seth and Pankaj Berry are top performers. Others are not really convincing (apart from a couple of guests like RajaSahab). The background music and visuals are positive factors of the TV Serial. And yes, the little kid who Haji Sahab is teaching how to do boating is very little Kunal Khemu (a famous actor who did work as a child artist and now a hero in mainstream Bollywood movies with moderate success and some good performances).
The serial now focusing more and more on the surroundings and situations which make people to act differently in order to survive. Sometimes it lead them to the wrong path.
Another important thing to watch in the episode is the strong bond of friendship between Mr. Narayan and Haji Khalik. Friendship knows no personal gains, no religions, no other aspects. Just being with each other in all the circumstance to support each other and share the sorrows and joy together, are the only attributes of friendship. A great message.
Overall a good watch.
