Saturday Update On Lies Of The Heart
Episode 324 – 326
At Ishaan’s residence, Urmi is seen performing some rituals to 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.
Samrat who gets to know that Ishan and Urmi does not reside together and gets excited by the latest news of their non conjugal status, from Damini, and smiles evilly. Samrat further plans to take advantage of the decision. He evilly thinks that having known this information of Urmi and Ishaan’s non-conjugal status, as a married couple, he would use this very information as a weapon against them to spoil their life and their marriage.
Later, in the night, after freshening up, Tani excitedly talks about how tired she is, that she kept a fast for him. He says that he is very happy with her. She puts on the AC, and then goes off to rest. Samrat wonders why it’s taking so long for his mother to get into action, as Tani would otherwise sleep peacefully. Meanwhile outside, after much scare, fear and hesitation, Shashi pulls off the main switch. Tani is incredibly irritated in her sleep, and gets up asking what happened. He starts pretending to lament at the power cuts, while she is shocked to know that it will come in the night. He says that this was the reason he didn’t want her to come to Jhansi, and is scared that she might catch Dengue. But much to his surprise, Tani begins to get all nice, saying that she can do this for him, after how he has sacrificed for her. She puts him to sleep, while he wonders what a crazy woman she is, to do this for his fake love. Tani keeps fanning herself with the newspaper. Later, Tani is in sweats, and tries to ward off mosquitoes, and gets irritated finding Samrat in a deep sleep, snoring. She finally gets him to wake up, and he is scared. She says that she is very sleepy too, and then she is tired after having fasted for him. He is not able to react, and is too stunned, while she sleeps. She lies down, and he starts fanning angrily, thinking that this is all due to Urmi, and he will spoil and ruin her devastatingly. He thinks that women these days have ruined him completely, Urmi on one side, and Tani on the other side.
Meanwhile at Ishaan’s residence, Ishaan comes back discussing business with his father Anirudh. Ishaan’s father tells him that he is really impressed by his research while Sandhya and Damini eye them. Sandhya pokes Damini to do something, while she is relieved and tells her that she will definitely do something, to expose Urmi, before Ishaan, and in Shaurya’s absence. Damini further asks Shaurya to sleep with his cousins Rati and Ujala, as he might be scared. Urmi says that it is not needed, she tells Damini that Shaurya is a fearless kid and does not hesitate to sleep alone. Shaurya too says that he is not scared. Anirudh says that there’s nothing wrong as then the kids will get to know each other. Shaurya is excited at the idea of much more fun. They decide to share room. Shaurya takes milk from his mother, Urmi, and then retires for the night, with Rati and Ujala. Urmi smiles. Damini, who is making up a plan thinks that tonight she will amusingly see how she escapes Ishaan’s room, and how she plans to expose Urmi today.
Later in the night, Sandhya and Damini begin with their plan. They find Urmi’s room closed from inside, and she happily sleeping away. While Urmi is asleep, Damini sister-in-law Sandhya intentionally starts to beat the door, while Urmi wakes up shocked. She overhears Sandhya’s screams that this door is locked, and since Shaurya went to sleep in Rati’s room, who could be inside, or maybe the door is simply jammed. They continue to take pleasure in Urmi’s torment inside, and starts screaming for a thief inside. Damini and Sandhya’s screams gather everyone and says that this door is not opening, as there’s no one inside. She decides to call Ishaan, but he doesn’t pick up, as she overhears Sandhya and her mother-in-law Damini instigating their husbands to take some action. Sandhya’s husband begins to try and open the door, but Anirudh stops him, saying that maybe they should hang on, and call the police to deal with this. Urmi, who is inside is shocked and scared that their truth might be out now and wonders what to do. She thinks that she would have to open the door, while Anirudh tries the police’s number. She finally comes out, and all are shocked to see her. Damini and Sandhya are amused. Sandhya pretends to be horrified, and Damini conscious and tensed. She says that Urmi should have been in Ishaan’s room, and then asks what she is doing here. Urmi stands speechless. Damini questions why is she sleeping separately from Ishaan, after their newly wed status. Just then, Ishaan comes there and Damini asks her son to explain. Ishaan lie that they had a minor tiff. Damini asks him to stop this nonsense. Sandhya says that they can’t have that a big fight that led them to live in separate rooms. Damini says that she knows that they don’t share beds, and hence have not even consummated their marriage. Urmi and Ishaan are shocked to hear this, while Ishaan’s father Anirudh is boggled. Damini asks her husband Anirudh to see for himself, and asks Ishaan to explain, how a minor tiff can lead to changing of rooms. Anirudh asks his son Ishaan to explain, while Damini says that the truth is Urmi is driving Ishaan around, and he being naive doesn’t even realise her ulterior motivs, as she deprives him of marital happiness. Ishaan tries to explain, while Sandhya instigates her all the more. Ishaan asks them to shut up, saying that it’s a mutual decision that they have come to, and which infact he suggested. Damini asks what this is. Ishaan says that they want to give each other spce for the next three days, which is his decision. Sandhya asks what this is now. Ishaan asks her not to interfere, as it’s between him and Urmi, and he doesn’t find it necessary and good to discuss this in front of all of them. Sandhya’s husband agrees with Ishaan. Urmi is stunned. Ishaan asks her to sleep, and wishes everyone goodnight. Their husbands leave too, while Sandhya and Damini eye Urmi angrily.
