Pavitra Rishta……….22nd to 30th June!!!

22nd june:

Recap: Manav’s father in police station

Satish n his parents invited on dinner from Archana’s family

Ajit’s mother after anonymously calling at Satish’s house, telling them wrong rumors about Archana comes to A’s residence to give a great apologizing act. Finally she successeds in convincing A’s mom to forgive her, just then Manjusha stops her mother inviting her for dinner as too is family member,….few minutes later in the kitchen she (Rasika) says, ‘i’m here to see for myself, the insult of Archana and her family’ ….

Satish with his parents enters the scene, they are invited to the dinner table but they say first we need to talk to you in private about what we heard about Archana today……Satish, his parents and Archana’s parents go into the next room………..outside all are making assumptions about what is going on inside btw them????

They all come out in a silent mode but as Manjusha asks them, should I set the table………they reply, why not, as they are here to have their daughter-in-laws hand cooked food. Rasika is shocked seeing all planning going into vain but she doesn’t give up and calls up her son Ajit to tell him everything and also a new plan of action (here we don’t get to hear anything, -to keep the surprise element in the show) !!!!!

Manav at a theatre with his father (Ajay Wadhavkar), who narrates to him the stories of his glorious days in theatre line. The director recognizes manav’s father reffering to him as ‘guruji’, and when he is given a role in an upcoming play, ……..he says ‘ now i will be charging Rs.500/- instead of Rs.300/-……..and leaves when he is refused at this by the director.

Manav returns back inside alone, to say to the director, ‘sir, please give my father what he is asking for ‘coz if he doesn’t work he falls to drinking; i’ll pay to the extra amount of 200 to give to my father’,  and to this director agrees and appreciates him.

Dinner time at Archana’s place, with everyone in a jolly mood except Rasika. Just then a ring,…..its Satish’s mother mobile ringing####  Rasika gives a smile full of craftiness and says now this marriage will be called off for sure!!!!!!!!!!

In the episode of 23rd June, Archana n her family along with Satish n his parents at Archana’s place to celebrate the alliance of Archana and Satish. Rasika is also there…..……waiting for her plan to successed. Satish’s mother cell rings and again someone trying to break this alliance ……..but his mother pays no attention to it and scolds the person on phone “I know the difference between good and bad. That girl is not bad, you are. You are spreading rubbish about such a good girl. Don’t ever call this number again, GOT IT!”. Manju and her mom are shocked, so she asks “what happened??” Satish’s mother replies “it was someone telling all wrong things about Archana. But don’t worry, our decision will not change ‘coz of this”. Then she says “to be careful as only few people know about this alliance and whoever it was on phone was asking why didn’t, we break this marriage. May it’s someone your close to your family………” Vinod asks for the number, to find the area call came from; this scares manju and her mom. And satish’s mom says, “leave it son. Why talk about such stuff when you have such good food on the table” and everyone goes back smiling.

Next morning, Archana is shown with newspaper in her hand, everyone is in hurry so they’re calling to Archana, “where’s my chai, where’s my book??”……..seeing this Archana’s mother (Sulochana) smiles and say what will they all do without Archana; Sulochana continues with her prayer and just as she is done the phone rings. She picks it up and its Satish. Satish says, “Hello, Mom! Uhhmm, I was wondering if could take Archana out today”. Sulochana says “Yes, talk to Archana yourself” Varsha and Vaishali get all excited about it, so their father tells them not to bug Archana and their mom says “aren’t you two getting late??”. Satish says “Archana will you go out with me??” Sulochana tells her to say yes, so finally Archana says “YES” Satish says “I’ll pick you at 6”……….so Varsha and Vaishali takes the responsibility of Archana dressed up acc to a date and not aunty type. Everyone is very happy. After getting her ready Varsha says, “WOW!! You are looking beautiful. Hurry! Satish must be coming’. Then a car is showed, it is Satish and as they all walk Archana to the door her mm says to her, “This is your chance to know Satish better; Ohhh and make sure you talk to him and not that he’s the only one talking” As Archana walks towards the car, she keeps looking back (we can guess She is nervous!!). Satish opens the door for her. On the way, Satish asks, “What did you do today??”, Archana replies, “WORK!” ……….. “I too had a lot work today. We only get this Sunday as off, so tell me what do you do on Sundays??” …….she replies, “WORK….or sometimes I go to the temple”. Then Satish starts talking about his favorite music, concerts, etc…………this leaves Archana all lost!!!. Just then, a passerby tells Satish that his car front tire is losing air…….so he after asking for nearby garage, gets there………its Manav’s garage. Manav sees Archana and is lost in her beauty, secretly looking at her while doing work on another car. Chotu handles Satish’a car and when he gives Rs. 500 instead of 5/-, chotu goes to Manav for change…………..but Manav tells Satish that he does not have change………..just then Archana says, “I have change”. Satish tells Manav to collect it from Archana and she doesn’t even look at him (Manav) and handovers the Rs.5 coin in his hands. They leave, smiling at each other. They reach a restaurant and we see someone again puncture the car tire. Inside, Satish asks Archana as to what she would have and she agrees on Ice tea, which Satish orders for himself.  Later, as she takes a look at the prices in menu, she says, “250 rupees, just for DAL!! In this amount my family can have whole week’s rashan………Satish says, “its Bandra’s top restaurant, that’s why; he then starts talking and goes on and on and on……….Archana seems uncomfortable ‘coz she’s not used to sort of lifestyle. When leaving, Archana says to Satish, “you forgot 100 rupees”……and he says “that is for tip….” They leave. Outside the chauffer tells Satish about the deflated tire and he blames mechanic (that’s our Manav) and so to get a taxi they walk to the nearby stop. Mid way a gut comes up to them and starts talking to Archana, “hey! Archana, you told me you were sick, when I called you today. Oh! So you’re with him today?? Call me OK!!” he leaves………….Archana is like “He knew my name……….how???”…….Satish says, “lets go……..its getting late!”. That fellow goes to a car and says that I’ve made a bad impression of that girl as you asked. Then he’s paid up by none other then Manju’s brother that Ajit (with a evil grin on his face ) …………END!!!

24th June: Satish and Archana returning home in a taxi………Archana looks very uncomfortable and by the time time they reach home she’s crying. Satish asks her about what happened to her…why is she crying??………..she replies, “I didn’t know that man, who was he, how he knew my name, what he wanted, nothing….believe me”. At this Satish says “I do believe you, that’s the reason I didn’t question you!!” Archana says, “But you were silent the whole way back, didn’t talk to me either, so…..”. Satish replies, “ohh! That’s ‘coz I didn’t wanted to make you more upset. Don’t you worry; I know what is good and bad. But still Archana is all confused on how that man knew her name………Satish says “He might be mistaken, may be he knew other girl named Archana”………he then gives her a tissue saying, “Wipe you’re tears or else your family members will think that I made you cry on the first date!! (how sweet of Satish)………… Archana says “But…”, Satish tells her “No Buts, I told you naa”. As they get out of the taxi…….Archana’s family members come out and Sulochana says, “You….in a taxi??”……Satish says, “Aai! Our car broke down that’s why we took a taxi” and when Sulochana asks him to come in, but he says that he’s getting late……..and he leaves.

As Archana enters inside, Varsha and Vaishali start teasing her and asking about stuff, etc………. Sulochana stops them and says, “Archana you must be tired; you go get some sleep”………she goes to her room silently. Sulochana asks Vinod to come with her, inside. Manju all shocked up calls her mother (Rasika) and says, “Mom! Archana is back but she’s all quite. Something must be wrong”. Rasika says, “I know…..its all part of our plan”. They say bye and hang up the phone.

Next we see, Sulochana and Vinod with Archana in her room……..she told them all what happened.  Sulochana says getting all worried, “WHO…..who wants to break this marriage and why???” Vinod says, “I think, someone is doing this on purpose. Someone who cannot stand Archana’s happiness and wants to ruin her life”. Manju is outside all tensed up. Vinod continues, “I will figure this out and surely find the person behind all this”. Manju thinks to herself, “If they find out about Ajit is doing all this. My marriage will be broken”.

Ajit is shown saying, “I will ruin that girl, Archana’s reputation so much that she won’t be able to show her face to anyone”.

Then, they show Manav’s home. There’s a knock at the door, Manav looks outside and sees it’s the producer. Manav calls him in and calls his father. When his father comes, the producer says, “I’m sorry, I said NO to you without thinking twice. You’re the only one who can do that role, Guru ji”. Manav’s father replies, “and what about my deal??”. The producer says that he agrees to it and asks him to come by the office tomorrow and then leaves. Manav’s father then starts being boastful and says, “SEE!, the producer, himself came to me to apologize and gave me the role! And he’s going to pay me 500 rupees per show and now if I get 20 shows it means I’ll be making Ten Thousand rupees!” (Manav is happy for his father) “I’ll be able to share your burden Manav and also be able to send my daughter to college”. His wife says, “First, let the money come then take pride”……he replies “Where will the money go?? I’m a KING”………. “KING, in the day and at night in jail”………Manav gets up and tells them not to fight as father has got work today and after asking his father not to drink today, he leaves. His father slaps him jokingly and agrees not to. Finally their family is shown all HAPPY!!!

Archana shown making chapattis and burns it, thinking something about that man whom she met near the taxi…………

Then they show Varsha and her mom fighting ‘coz Varsha wants to go movie 6to9 and mom refuses. Varsha tries to explain Sulochana but…….when she doesn’t Varsha storms off in anger saying that no one tries to understand her.

Next we see, Satish getting into his car, when a man comes to him and starts asking what kind of girl he wants. Satish all confused…….then angrily tells that man to stop his nonsense talk and bug off. As Satish tries to push the man away…….the man’s photos fall and scatters everywhere. Satish notices Archana’s pic with the others……..he picks it up and is SHOCKED!!!

25th June: Satish picks up the photo of Archana and is shocked to see it. The man says, “Wow! You’ve found the best girl but i must tell you that she’s a bit different…..as she only works on Sundays” (Satish starts thinking of what Archana said that she goes to the temple on Sundays) the man continues that this girl lives with her family and not too literate; they too have no clue about this, as she lies to them and comes to work with me. Satish seems confused. Then the man says, “If you want this one it can be arranged”. Satish leaves without saying anything (he’s all Heart Broken) but at home he keeps thinking about what happened today and also on their first date, which put together can prove Archana wrong. But denying his own thinking he says, “I don’t believe Archana can do this. But, I have seen it with my own eyes. Whom should I listen to ‘My Heart OR My Mind’ ??????” …………..He calls up Archana but her mom picks the phone and on asking for Archana Satish gets to know that she is out. They hang up the phone and Satish getting all tensed that where could Archana be at 7 in the evening in this rain. At the same time, Archana seen trying her home number several times but no one picks up.

Then, we see Manav washing his face.

Manav is driving off to drop a client’s car, when he sees Archana on the way looking for an auto or taxi. Manav stops and offers ride to Archana. Just then satish’s mom passes them and seeing Archu with another man she is SHOCKED!! There, Archana recognizes Manav from the last time she saw him at the coffee shop (in the rain). She refuses, when Manav offers her a ride; then Manav asks her, “how will you go home then??”. Archana says “I’ll manage….don’t worry”. Manav then calls a taxi for her and she leaves. And all this happening is seen by Satish’s mother, who thinks to herself “she came in his car then why is she leaving in taxi from here (OMG!!!…..)

At home Sulochana is worried sick! and Archana comes all sneezing. Her mom asks what happened. Archana tells all about how she met the guy who gave her umbrella, and she returned it and he got Archana a taxi to get home quickly and about how good Manav is. To this her mom says “May be he (Manav) is good but Satish is better”. Also she tells Archana that Satish had called and poses her to call him back right now and Sulochana goes in to make tea for her.

Archana calls Satish……….he picks up……….she says “you called..??” Satish replies, “Yes, but tell me where were you??” …….she replies, “Nothing much, some work….”. Satish says, “I need to talk to you, can we meet tomorrow??”……..when Archana replies NO to him, he asks “why not??” and to this Archana replies that tomorrow she has to go to mandir (temple) and asks can we go day after tomorrow. Satish agrees to this and hangs up. (OMG!! He’s suspicious!)

Next we see Manju at her mom’s place………Vinod calls her and asks her to come back home ‘coz everyone has work tomorrow; Manju agree. Then her mom asks “What happened??” manju replies, “nothing, i have to go home now……….that Archana will go to mandir tomorrow so they want someone to do the work at home”…she leaves. Ajit (manju’s brother) then calls the man and tells him everything to do……..his plans for ruining Archana’s life~!!

Back at Archana’s place all are busy in the arrangements for the marriage and Varsha and Vaishali teasing their sister and demanding great dressed for them.

Next we see, Satish having dinner with his family when his mom says, “Today, I saw Archana….outside a store”…….Satish says, “may she was buying something”…….his mom says, “No, She was with a man and then she got out of his car and went in a taxi”…………….Satish is now VERY SUSPICIOUS!!!!!

26th June:  Two men getting their bike fixed at Manav’s garage………..Manav overhears them talking about some girl whom they’re planning against. He doesn’t bother and gets to his work. Next day we see Archana going to the mandir and Satish starts following her. He follows her to the mandir and feels relieved seeing her going inside but his happiness doesn’t last long………..just then…..

Archana gets a call on her mobile that her sister Varsha had an accident and she’s asking for Archana…..hearing this she immediately gets into a taxi to go to her sister. Satish who was following her gets upset to see this……….

Archana while going to her sister, her taxi stops at a signal……. And just across the road is standing Manav who sees Archana. Then a man (same who met Satish earlier) comes to Archana and says “My mom is very sick and I’m not getting a taxi either. Can you help and drop me few blocks on the way????” ………….Manav see the man and recognizes him from the garage, who was going to ruin some girl’s reputation. He thinks to himself, “Is that girl ARCHANA???”…………. Manav follows Archana and Satish is also after her. Archana tells the taxi driver to go faster. ………… they reach the bunglow and getting off the taxi that man very smoothly hides some thing in Archana’s purse and after thanking Archana, he leaves. And she goes inside…….. (OH NO!!!!)

Then that man calls Satish (he knows tht Satish was following them) and says, “The girl has come, you can meet her and for next time you do have my card”………then he calls Ajit and tells him everything and feel happy that now Archana’s life will be ruined for sure. Ajit asks him to call Satish and he says, “Don’t worry he is already here.” Manav hears all this and runs to help Archana. ………….

Inside the bunglow Archana sees people involved in one another and feels bad about the place and right then someone screams, “RUN the police is here”. Everyone starts running and Archana getting in the midst of all this……….just then she is pulled by someone in a closet, It’s MANAV. Archana tries to scream but Manav calms her and says, “Please listen to me, and don’t scream. Someone had trapped you. I’m here to help you, believe me. Then after the police are gone Manav takes Archana out from the back way and gets into a taxi. Archana is crying and Manav tries to console her and she says “I’m not that kind of a girl”…….. Manav says “I know that you’re not one of them that’s why I came for to help you”. {Then we see Ajit and his mother talking and feeling happy how he has destroyed Archana’s life.}…………… Manav stops the taxi, at a distance to Archana’s house and says, “I could have dropped you to your house but people would make things up if they saw us together, so…..” Archana says thanks to him and walks to her home and Manav keeps looking at her.

Archana gets home and Varsha starts talking to her about wedding cards but she seems uninterested; ………….. AND enters Satish with his parents. Vinod says that they have come at the right time ‘coz they were just selecting the wedding cards and now they can have their pick too. Satish’s mother says, “One Minute! We need to speak to you first”. Everyone is shocked and scared………

29th June: in the last episode we saw, Archana gets home all shocked up. Her family members are talking to her about wedding cards but she seems uninterested; ………….. AND enters Satish with his parents. Vinod says that they have come at the right time ‘coz they were just selecting the wedding cards and now they can have their pick too. Satish’s mother says, “One Minute! We need to speak to you first”. Everyone is shocked and scared………

Satish’s mother says that this marriage cannot take place ‘coz Satish is being sent to US (for 3-4yrs) by his company. Everyone is shocked and Archana is flustered. Sulochana gets furious and says, “This cannot happen. How can you’ll do this??”……….then she gets very hyper and ask then to tell the correct reason for their refusal……… “if they dowry or…”

Satish’s mom says “we are not after dowry. But we have seen Archana go places where decent girls don’t go”……..hearing this Sulochana gets angry and says that her daughter went to the temple and they are mistaken……….and so they get into an argument and finally Satish’s mom to prove her saying brings in the man that Archana gave lift to. The man comes and says that he knows Archana as she meets him everyday; Vinod gets to beat him up so he asks to check Archana’s purse…………. Sulochana getting angry says there’s nothing in her purse but as she opens it, it’s full of money (Rs. 20000/- which were put by the same man in 26th june epi.)……….the whole family is shocked!!!!

Archana is crying and tries to tell everyone what happened but the man doesn’t give her a chance to say anything. And when Archana says that she got a call………..but the man says that it was he who called her to work and no accident; Vinod gets infuriated and pounces on that man but Satish stops him. Now Satish’s mom says that they’re calling off the wedding ‘coz of this reason and Satish himself saw Archana at the brothel; that’s why they didn’t wanted to bring it up in front of Archana’s family as they would be hurt to know this. Vinod again tries to explain then but they don’t listen and go away.

Sulochana faints as she got an asthma attack; everyone runs to her except Archana ‘coz she’s crying and all shook up.

“She’ll be fine by morning”, says the doctor after examining Sulochana. Later, Varsha says that she won’t go to work tomorrow ‘coz she wouldn’t be able to answer her friends when they’ll ask about the wedding being called off and Vaishali also decides to do the same. She then asks, “where is Tai (Archana) ???”……….and Archana is shown crying alone in the balcony corner, getting all wet in the rain; she’s remembering all what happened with her today.

Then we see Manav at his place, sitting at the door step, getting all wet and thinking of Archana’s tears. But he feels relieved that he was able to save her from such a place……………….The screen then, splits into half and we see both Archana and Manav, thinking about the day’s happening and getting wet in the rain!!!

30th June: The episode starts with the newspaper walas outside Archana’s house working and discussing how in so many years this is the first time that the light are out at Archana’s place and its 5:30am and wonder ‘what could be the reason???’………… inside Archu is awake still crying. The milk and newspaper is also not picked, ‘coz everyone is gathered around Sulochana, who is still lying sick. She blabbers in her sleep, “my Archana is not like this, my Archana is not like this………” Punni comes and asks Archana to get her ready for school but seeing her not react, Manju comes and takes her. Then they both leave as Manju said that she would drop punni to school and got to her office. Vinod doesn’t go to work ‘coz of his mom and Varsha, Vaishali says the same about their going……

Their father tells them to take care of the food today. But Vaishali says, “there aren’t any vegetables at home……..aai (mom) was supposed to go to the market today but……..” her father says “I’ll go to the market”……….he steps outside, he picks up the milk and newspaper and he is shocked to read the news of prostitutes getting arrested the night before!!!

Simultaneously, Manav’s dad is reading the same news and Manav thinks “thank God, Archana is safe”……..and his dad says “oh! Leave this news and do read tomorrows newspaper ‘coz I’ll be in it” Manav gives a sweet smile at this……

Archana’s father is going to the market and people around him are discussing that something has happened at his house…….

After this we see, Manju at her mom’s place and there she finds out that her mother and bother Ajit are behind the breaking of Archana’s marriage. Manju gets angry and slaps ajit saying, “How can they stoop so low?? Did you not think of that she is a girl and what about her reputation??? Then she asks her mother that how she forgot that it is her daughter’s sasural, however it is, it’s her home now……. How could you being a daughter’s mom yourself, do this to someone else’s girl???” at this Manju’s mom says that whatever they did was to have their revenge and she should understand her brother’s pain too. But Manju leaves from there in anger……

Sulochana gains consciousness and asks for Archana………and finds her in the room crying and quickly hugs her (both start crying)……. .. later, Sulochana asks Varsha and Vaishali why didn’t they go to work and college??…….. Varsha says that if people asked about why Archana’s wedding was called off…..what would they say?? Sulochana scolds her saying that she knows Archana was not wrong and Varsha says , “mom we too know tai (Archana) is innocent, but people don’t…..they’ll very easily believe that tai is…..” ….Vinod yells at her; Archana comes and tells everyone of what exactly happened.

Then comes a guy to finalize the wedding card design and Sulochana bursts into tears. Last scene we see, its mid night……everyone’s asleep and Archana’s father gets up and walks out of the house thinking and sad……
