It is said that, there is no couple which haven’t ever fought. Well, of course, its true that every human being have his or her own ideology, persona and attributes. Those of ones are somewhere different than those of others. And in a healthy relationship there is always a room for each one to speak his/her mind, to represent his/her views otherwise its kind of a dictatorship where the differences does exist, but cannot be represented. If you observe, a huge amount of jokes are on the husband wife relationship.
This episode of the sitcom Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai is based on a little heavy husband-wife drama with fun implanted. As we know that the persona of Indravadan aka Indu is quite different than that of Maya. Well, we can say the same for the pair of Jr. Sarabhais, Sahil and Monisha too, and for that matter Dushyant and Sonya too. But we will talk about Maya and Indu only. Maya was shouting on Indu and he was standing and trying to explain himself and calm Maya down. The scene resemble to the one, when a naughty student was getting scolded for the mistake he made and teacher was announcing his punishment. The wordings of Maya and the explanatory behavior of Indu made you think that Maya have caught Indu red-handed in an extra-marital affair!

But wait, that is not the case. Indu made a mistake but not that serious. He did a major mistake by putting some of his stuff into Maya’s cupboard. The reason, Indu’s cupboard was full. Seems simple right? But for Maya, who is very organized person (quite contrary to Indu) this seems a very big mistake which did upset her. Indu tried calm Maya down sincerely but the thing got worst. Maya advised Indu to get rid of some of his old suits, by donate them to some beggars or so. The reply of Indu and the scene following the same is a delight to watch, and explores the comic timings and acting range of both Satish Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah.
We see Rosesh was walking in a rather strange way. When asked he said he was practicing his next play where he play a drunk. Actually he had to play a fellow who drunk 2 full bottles! When Sahil advised him to do things with intensity, he answers… Well, just watch the scene to enjoy the scene. The way Rosesh speaks is like a superstar showing off his superior acting abilities!! Anyway Indu was moodless and to change his mood it was necessary to get the things settle between him and Maya. Sahil advised him the most famous and proven trick. Buy her a gift which is classy and useful to her too.
Indu found the idea interesting. In an even interesting way he went with Monisha to bought a gift for Maya!!!
Indu came with a cupboard. It was made from wood and look very old – or let us say antique. From Indu’s expression Maya got flattered and thanked him by hugging him for this antique gift. From half of the talk with Indu she assumed that it was the cupboard from the time of Akbar – the Mughal emperor. And she was really happy. But, when Maya is happy, Monisha have be there right? She entered the scene an gives back Rs. 400 back to Indu which she claimed back by her negotiation skills from the vendor from whom they bought the cupboard.
When Maya got to know the real truth about the cupboard she got out of control. What was that truth?
See here the explanation about the thing and Monisha’s remark about a local bear bar and her assumption that Maya must knew about that very low category shop!? And her reason to think so, which was explained to us by Indravadan. It made the things very clumsy again. Maya was really un-happy and disappointed. She started again scolding Indu. Actually there came a point when Indu felt insulted by Maya. The small disputes and little cat-fights doesn’t matter for him, but this time, the water went above his head. He really felt ill.
To rescue their relationship Sahil tried calm him down and explained that Maya really loves him from the deepest heart and all. Though Indu was not ready to accept it! Sahil comes up with a plan to prove that Maya really loves Indu. What was the plan and what will be outcome is a delight to watch.
In addition to Satish Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah, we gotta see the comic timings and chemistry between Sumeet Raghavan and Rupali Ganguly. Rajesh Kumar also proves his abilities. The background music and some on-spot sound really works. The quick-witty dialogs are an aid. A genuine, watchable comedy.
