Friday Update On Lies Of The Heart
Episode 322 – 325
In the kitchen, while Urmi prepares for the Rasoi ritual, Sandhya asks her what she is making. She replied that she is making a carrot dessert happily. Sandhya keeps commenting one thing or the other. Urmi is tensed. Samrat overhears all their conversation from a distance. Urmi is hurt at Sandhya’s hurtful taunts, but doesn’t react. She advises Urmi to make it tasty. Urmi silently complies. Sandhya leaves. Urmi gets back to her work. After finishing her work, she begins to add sugar, but remembers that she kept the press on. She rushes out. Later, Samrat stealthily comes there and mixes a lot of salt, saying that he wouldn’t let Urmi have her way, and will displease everyone on Urmi, and spoil her relation with everyone. He then leaves. After sometime Urmi returns, and gets back to work.
At the dining table, all await for Urmi’s dessert. Tani belittles it, saying that Urmi definitely knows how to cook food. Sandhya’s husband vouches for Urmi’s culinary talent. Samrat anxiously waits for Urmi’s dessert and the reaction that it will have on everyone. Finally Urmi gets the dessert and serves it to everyone. All begin to taste the halwa, while Urmi anxiously waits for their comments and reactions. Samrat thinks evilly that this is the taste that is his special ingredient in her dessert. Before Samrat can taste it, Anirudh says that it’s damn good, and others have the same response, boggling Samrat. Urmi, who prepares ‘Halwa’ for the entire family eyes this expression, and watches in content, as Samrat wonders where did the salt go.
Urmi gets praised by her father in law, Anirudh who in turn gives her a gift and asks her to keep giving such sweet mixes in everyone’s relationships too, and blesses her. Samrat scorns, while Urmi smirks at him. One after the other, she gets a gift from Sandhya and her husband too. Damini asks Tani to go and get the gift for her. She gives Urmi a diamond necklace. She happily accepts it. All look on. Seeing the table turn against him as the people present their offer their gifts to Urmi, Samrat gets furious and is in stuck in confusion as he thought that he had mixed salt in the ‘halwa’ that Urmi had prepared. As he is unable to take it anymore, Samrat leaves disgusted. Tani is told by Urmi, that such small things and issues, are what make marriage a sweet journey. She asks Tani that she definitely must be missing such things. Tani is visibly uncomfortable.
Samrat rushes to the kitchen and checks whether was it salt that he had mixed in the ‘halwa’. The salt tastes sweet when Samrat tastes and finds that the jar containing sugar contains salt. He wonders how is this possible and says how could salt be sweet?. Just then Urmi comes in smirking and speaks up saying that she had already changed the boxes of sugar and salt as she already doubted that he would certainly play his bad act in her role of preparing ‘halwa’. She says that to ruin her, he stooped down to such a low level and womanly attribute. She starts taking another serving, teasing and taunting him all the more. She says that this is just the beginning, of his debacle and asks him to stay put, as his personality will ruin and destroy him one day. Urmi warns Samrat saying that his bad times have started and should think about that. She adds that the crossroads where he is, he should stop wasting his time to bother her, and spend more time to settle himself. She again reminds him of the 24 hours promise, and says that she doesn’t want that he comes to his senses after being thrown out. She tauntingly gives him the dessert and leaves. He is enraged at her. He thinks that he would have to secure his place in the house, so that all of her plan fail.
At Urmi’s residence, Urmi comes to Shaurya and he hugs her. All get emotional to see the mother-son reunion, as tears storll down Urmi’s cheeks. She says that she missed him, and he reciprocates asking when would he go with them, and asks if his dad Samrat has left or not. Urmi is tensed. She says that he hasn’t, but will soon. She then says that after that Shaurya would be with her. He happily agrees, and asks her not to bother for him. He gets emotional. Saroj asks them to sit down. Shaurya goes inside to show something for his mother. After he leaves, Saroj asks if she found out about her drunken behaviour last night and asks how could this happen. Urmi tells her mother Saroj and everyone else, how her drink was tampered and how she thinks Samrat must have been behind it. All are tensed. Gaurav is enraged. Granny asks what now. Urmi says that whatever Samrat does, she will not feel intimadated, and will give him back a tit for tat response. She says that what she wants would happen.
As Gaurav’s personal secretary calls up, Asha continues her nonsensical rant in english, and dismisses her off, pisses that it’s a girl call. Asha is shocked to hear this, and gets enraged. She gets to know that the girl joined last week only. She disconnects the call, refusing to let her talk to him. She starts suspecting that he has an extra-marital relationship, and starts connecting the dots together.
At the Chawl, Samrat comes to the waiter’s aide room, and then asks for his stuff. The waiter gives him a pile of jewellery, that he stole unrisked by the police’s beatings. Samrat collects it. Samrat begins to leave, when the waiter asks for his share too, in a nice manner, reminding how he ruined Ishaan and Urmi’s wedding night, on samrat’s instructions. He gives him a necklace, smiling.
At Ishaan’s residence, as Urmi comes home, Ishaan asks her to sign some hotel papers. As she complies, Anirudh and Sandhya’s husband return. Urmi rushes to get coffee for them, but Anirudh stops her. Suddenly, limping on his feet, Samrat walks in, shouting everyone to gether together, his hand containing the same packet. He says that he found the stolen jewellery. All are shocked, while Ishaan and Urmi are doubtful. He shows them the jewellery and hands them to Urmi, while she is shocked and stunned. She eyes him suspiciously. Sandhya’s husband asks how did he search them. He winces in pain, and says that the theft made him restless, and decided to find out about this, by getting to the bottom. The investigation started. Ishaan doubtfully asks what the whole story is. Samrat gave a make-believe story, as to how he heroically saved the jewellery from criminal thieves. Tani is concerned for his safety, while he pretends to be noble. Tani comments that Samrat is very brave, while he continues to romance with her. Anirudh is pleased with him, and Urmi and Ishaan get tensed to see that he fell prey to Samrat’s pray. Damini too says that they had lost all hopes. Anirudh says that they were wrong in judging him, as he can see how much Samrat cares for everyone in the family, and that Tani’s choice for him is not that wrong. He says that he sees his reflection in him, as he used to be brave like this. He praises him galore, while Samrat is excited. Urmi and Ishaan are shocked, as Anirudh declares him as the son-in-law of the house, whole heartedly. Urmi is stunned. Samrat eyes her evilly, thinking that he created such a scene, that the head of the family is praising him. Anirudh says that he is kind hearted and self-reliant, but he loves Tani so much, that he is willing to be Ghar jamai ( settling down in his wife house ). He starts praising him about how he has sacrificed his ego and self respect, to gain her family’s trust. He says that he is proud of him, due to Tani. Anirudh says that till now, Tani never did the right thing, but by choosing him, he forgave her all her mistakes. He proudly says that he selected a gem of a husband. He adds that he feels sorry for him, as love has made him helpless. He asks Tani to value him. He hugs Samrat. From his shoulder, samrat eyes Urmi evilly.
Later, in the room, Ishaan asks his father Anirudh how could he fall for Samrat’s statements and demeanour. Anirudh says that it is not as it seems. Ishaan is boggled. Anirudh says that the biggest loss, is when the person knows that he has won and starts celebrating, and Samrat is behaving like that, and hopes that he lives in this hallucination for some more time, so that they get the chance to catch him off guard. He adds that he did this on purpose, so that he falls in his own trap, by praising him fakely so much. Ishaan is confused. Anirudh says that people like Samrat are like poisonous snakes, ready to bite anytime, and hence this is the best way to get rid of him. Ishaan is confused and tensed. Anirudh says that he will make Samrat so guilty that he would himself run away. Ishaan is still unconvinced and boggled. Anirudh says that this is his and Urmi’s plan. He then relates how Urmi apologised for whatever happened, and says that Samrat came for the wrong motives. Anirudh says that he knows but Tani refuses to see anything. Urmi says that Tani is completely trapped in Samrat’s plan. They decide to send Tani to Bhopal, where she can see Samrat’s reality for herself. They agree. Ishaan hears this and is surpised pleasantly.
At Ishaan’s residence, Urmi is seen performing some rituals for Samrat’s wife, Tani. While the whole family performs the final rituals of vidaai with Tani but Samrat is devising a plan to make the rituals a flop as he is frustrated thinking that he would have to act fast or he will soon be sent out. He acts to have a fainting spell and falls on the sofa pretending to be unconscious. The people at house get shocked, and they try to wake Samrat up by sprinkling water on his face. Tani is extremely worried, but a stubborn Samrat is not ready to wake up and thinks that he would deliberately not get up, so that he doesn’t have to go. Ishaan’s father Anirudh genuinely gets tensed, but Urmi pretends that this is a drama. Urmi too pretends to be tensed and gestures Ishaan to wake Samrat up by something. Ishaan raises a false alarm, and shouts saying that there is a lizard on Samrat and it’s crawling on his face and he springs up in scare. Samrat wakes up and shouts, he starts searching for the lizard but doesn’t finds it. She says that there’s no lizard, and Tani thanks the lord. Ishaan says that he knows his childhood friend, and he knows he is scared of lizard which brought him back to his senses. Everybody conclude that Samrat was actually acting. Urmi says that it’s good he regained his senses, so that they can start with the Vidaai rituals, and asks him to come down. Samrat is in a world of torture, as there’s no way out.
Ishaan gets the car ready that will leave them to the airpot, and Samrat keeps every step, with a heavy heart. Tani too leaves happily. Urmi smirks at Samrat, who is angered. Ishaan asks Samrat to come along. Tani performs the vidaai rituals. Urmi comes beside Samrat, asking how he feels, as it is still not 24 hours, and he has already pakced up. She congratulates him on his new life and new wife. He asks her not to get too happy, as he is leaving, but won’t leave her, and before Holi festival, he will return again, to spoil her Holi, and poison her life. Urmi is not unfazed, while Samrat challenges her. They finally leave.
In the evening, Damini is reminded by Sandhya of the Pagphera ritual, when Urmi comes tonight. She again taunts Damini of her ill luck, about her son’s readymade wife, and her readymade grandson. She taunts Damini, and she gets enraged. Anirudh comes and asks them to hurry, and Damini resignedly agrees. Ishaan and Urmi enter with Shaurya, and Damini performs the ritual, along with Anirudh. Damini puts a brave face as she performs the Puja, and then allows them to come inside. Sandhya thinks that Damini’s status has been reduced to that of a helpless woman. Finally, they are welcomed inside. Shaurya is given much love and affection by everyone. Ujala takes Shaurya to show him his room.
Inside, all sit down, and have a light banter. Anirudh presents them flight tickets for their honeymoon. They both are baffled. He excitedly gives them, while they are tensed amongst themselves. Sandhya taunts them. But Damini doesn’t say anything.
While in the room, Urmi is tensed, as to how they will explain to their parents that they won’t go to the honeymoon. She wonders what reason they will give on not going to the honeymoon. He asks her not to be tensed, and asks her to have faith in him, that he will manage. He says that his father Anirudh will not know the real reason too. Before they can discuss any further, Shaurya comes in gloating about his wonderful room. They all start bantering happily with Shaurya. Ishaan gets emotional, when in the happiness, Shaurya refers to him as “FATHER”. He is thoroughly overwhelmed with emotions, and Urmi gets emotional too. Shaurya senses the awkwardness as he asks if he can call him his father. Ishaan emotionally complies yes. He and Urmi eye each other, as Shaurya hugs them.
Downstairs, Sandhya tries to point out the fact that tomorrow is Shivratri, and the new bride has no tension, as she is busy packing for the honeymoon. Ishaan and Urmi who are coming down the stairs hear this and are tensed. The maid says that all arrangements have been done by Urmi only, and she herself asked her to go and ask Ishaan’s mother, Damini if there’s anything else that remains to be done. Sandhya’s husband is satisfied. Anirudh praises Urmi hearing this. Damini sends the maid off. Anirudh asks them both to sit. Urmi signals him to speak. Anirudh asks why does he look tensed. Ishaan says that they have decided that they won’t go on their honeymoon as yet and this shocks everyone. Ishaan gives the excuse of work pressure, but Anirudh points out the importance of quality time. Ishaan says that Urmi’s restaurant too got neglected due to this. Damini and Sandhya are baffled. Ishaan thanks his dad Anirudh for the gesture, while Anirudh says that he is okay as long as Urmi is not upset with it. She happily says that she is not upset at all. Damini wonders that something is definitely wrong, and why aren’t they going to the honeymoon.
At Bhopal, while on the road, Samrat stops to purchase water, keeping Tani in the car, and makes a call to his mother Shashi. Samrat tells his mother, to get all the arrangements. Shashi starts giving excuse of such short notice. He silences her and asks her not to mess with anything. He says that he would reach in the next 4,5 hours. She tries to get him happy, saying that she would manage everything. He asks her not to dare have any troubles. She complies. Samrat vents out his frustration.
Finally, Samrat reaches home, and Tani is over excited. He laments at his condition. Samrat finally walks up the stairs with Tani. She is very excited, to meet his parents. Finally Shashi welcomes them, and is over excited as Samrat told her to act. She is shocked that Samrat never touched her feet, but did today and asked his wife also to do the same. She happily hugs Tani. He asks her to control her overacting. He asks where Diwaker is and Shashi hollers for Diwaker and Kanchan. Some other couple come. Samrat thinks that Diwaker is okay but the fake Kanchan is nice, as he leeringly eyes her. He hugs Diwaker put of pretentious care and affection. He is about to hug the sister-in-law, but she flinches as he comes closer. As they all go inside, Samrat drags his mother Shashi out, asking how did she get a bengali sister-in-law. She says that this is the maximum that she could manage. He asks her to get the stuff inside. Shashi is angry at him.
At Ishaan’s residence, as Ishaan comes inside, he finds Urmi dazed and tired, sleeping in her chair. He asks her to go and sleep. But she wakes up, and continues working. Damini is passing by, when she overhears, Ishaan asking her not to overexert herself, and rest, or else she will be sick. She asks him to wait some more time before everyone is asleep, so as to safely move out, and sleep in another room. Damini is baffled as to what they mean. Ishaan hesitates and says that if people get to know then it would be very unsettling. Damini is shocked, as she overhears from outside, that Urmi tells Ishaan inside, as to how long they will be able to hide the truth, that they maybe married, but they haven’t consummated their marriage, nor do they live like a married couple. Damini is shocked to hear this.
Damini is shocked to hear about her son Ishaan and Urmi’s conjugal status, when inside Urmi is tensed that they are betraying his parents. Ishaan asks her not to bother, and not take tension, and asks her to go and sleep with Shaurya, as it’s getting late and she is extremly tires. Urmi tells Ishaan that it is very sweet of him to give her so much space. Ishaan asks Urmi not thank him and tells her that Shaurya might be waiting for her. He stealthily opens the door, and checkes if its safe. When he is satisfied, Urmi comes out. Damini eyes them both from hiding. Urmi comes out, wishing him goodnight, and then goes to her room. Damini, who accidentally, hears the entire thing makes a wrong impression in her mind is enraged that Urmi is manipulatively using them all. She thinks that Urmi tricked her son and is just using him, but he has suffered enough, and that she won’t bear it anymore, and vow to expose her in front of everyone, how Urmi take over everything for her and her son, and didn’t even let Ishaan enjoy his marriage.
The next morning, Damini’s sister-in-law Sandhya gets to know the entire thing and is shocked to hear about Urmi and Ishaan’s marital status from Damini. She sits tensedly. Sandhay wonders what’s going on. Damini, who decides to unveil the truth in front of everybody says that she knows Ishaan is not happy. Sandhya conclude that Urmi has taken over Ishaan, due to her emotional and manipulative behaviour, over Ishaan’s naive innocence, for an ulterior motive and taking advantage of Ishaan’s innocence. Damini gets tensed to see this. Sandhya says that she can’t stop it, even if she wants. Damini says that she will expose them all. Sandhya asks how. Damini says that she would get Urmi to do something for Ishaan, which she wouldn’t ever do, and when she doesn’t, it will itself be proven. Urmi and Ishaan come down the stairs. Damini requests Urmi for a 1000 maha Mrityunjaya Jaap, for Ishaan, as this is their first Shivratri, without food or water. Ishaan says that she need not do this, while Urmi is tensed. He says that he doesn’t believe in this. Damini says that she does, and she is sure even Urmi realises the importance of this ritual. Urmi stands visibly tensed. Ishaan asks Urmi not to do it, if she doesn’t feel like it, and asks his mother Damini to let her decide. Damini says that it is not necessary, and it’s entirely Urmi’s wish to do it or not. Urmi stands tensed, while Ishaan is concerned for Urmi.
Later, Anirudh is getting late for business, when Damini comes and hesitatingly says that she is tensed for Ishaan. Anirudh asks her not to worry, as Ishaan is sensible. She says that it is not like that, and mentions that Ishaan and Urmi don’t have a normal married, conjugal life. He is boggled. She says that Ishaan is not happy. He asks how can that be in an arranged marriage. She says that she too feels the same, and then tells about how Urmi reacted to keeping the fast, which she should have as an ideal wife, but she didn’t. He asks how can Urmi not treat Ishaan as her husband. He asks her that if she is doubtful, then he will talk to them himself, in the night. He begins to leave, when the sound of Mahamrityunjaya Jaap, reaches them, and Anirudh goes there. Damini goes behind him, shocked. They find Urmi praying as Damini told her to do. Damini is boggled what Urmi’s new play is now. Anirudh retorts back at his wife Damini about her earlier allegations. Ishaan is overwhelmed to see this too, saying that he told her not to do, yet she did. Sandhya too asks Damini how did this happen. Anirudh praises Urmi galore, and Ishaan too says that Urmi is the ideal wife, and he is lucky to have her as the perfect wife for himself. Anirudh eyes Damini snidely, and says that Ishaan is lucky that his wife is doing this for him, but his own wife wont never did this for him, nor gave it much importance. Damini is infuriated but doesn’t say anything. She leaves, with Sandhya in tow. As Damini sits on the sofa, she is tensed. Sandhya comes to taunt her on Anirudh’s statements and asks her to get habituated to all this. She is angry.
At Samrat’s residence, Samrat breifs them all as to what’s to be done, for another seven days, when Diwaker and Kanchan are out of town, in Tani’s absence. The Bengali fake sister-in-law in place of Kanchan says that she will go after five days. Samrat gets frustrated at her foolishness. She says that she knows she has to torture Tani, so that she runs away from there. Samrat emphasises that they have to always speak in hindi and not Bengali. They ask him to keep giving them money on time, and he says that it is not a problem as his wife is very rich. Samrat convinces Shashi and the fake couple, that they have to torture Tani so much, that she would rush away from here as easily as she came. The Bengali fake sister-in-law is unconvinced about the motive behind all this, but Samrat shuts her up. Shashi thinks on her own, that he might convince all that they need, but she will always be nice to Tani, and keep herself in the good book of Tani, so that she might benefit.
The next morning, as Tani comes to join them for breakfast, the Bengali sister-in-law does not allow Tani to eat, as it’s her Shivratri fast, and she can take neither fruits nor water. Tani tries to say that she can have fruits. But she is rudely snubbed off. Tani rushes to ask Samrat how does he stand his wife being talked to like this. He tries to tell that there are lots of rituals, during which, Tani stealthily hides an apple under her saree dupatta. The Bengali sister-in-law and Shashi try to irritate her, and Tani asks how dare she talk to her like this. Shashi intervenes, and asks Tani to bear just like they all do. Tani refers to it as disgusting and leaves inside. Samrat stands amused.
At Ishaan’s and Samrat’s residence, Ishaan eyes Urmi emotionally, as she continues the jaap. He starts to serve fruits to her, while she lovingly says that she will eat. As she begins, after having completed her fast, Ishaan eyes her overwhelmingly unable to take his eyes off her. He suddenly wakes up with a start, and asks why did she do the fast, and if she accidentally fell in love with him. She gets tensed but smiles at him nevertheless. He is amused at her blush, and again asks if bells of love rang. She says that she prayed and fasted for his long life. He reminds her that she did so for her husband’s long life. She happily complies, and says that she did it, for her best friend, which he is, even before her husband, and for a person and friend like her, she can do so a hundred times. He pretends to be hurt that she has not fallen in love with him, but then adds that he knows Urmi, and one day she will herself say that she loves him. She smiles at him. Overhearing this from a distance, Damini wonders what this relation is, and the weird love that they are talking about, that’s there but is not there too. She wonders what love and romance are they talking about, when they don’t share their beds as a normal married couple. She says that whatever be the case, one thing is for sure, that this is a fake, make believe marriage, and she won’t let it be hidden for long. She gets Samrat’s call and is baffled. She asks about Tani, and Samrat says that she is not too good, and tells about the fast. She says that Tani is not habituated to all this, and asks him to take care. He says that he had warned her earlier. Samrat irritably tells Damini, that Urmi must be enjoying herself and her honeymoon with Ishaan, day and night, while he is stuck her with Tani, due to Urmi’s evil ideas and traps. Damini frustratedly tells Samrat that they don’t even sleep in the same bed, and in the same room, together. Samrat is shocked at this revelation. He says that this means Urmi has not forgotten him. She is shocked. He says that he was just joking. He asks why are they doing this, and again continues to instigate her, that Urmi is spoiling her daughter’s life, and has already slaved her son. He says that they could have stayed in different rooms, and differnet houses. She is instigated and says that she would make that happend. She disconnects the call while Samrat smile evilly.
