A lockdown love story 21 February 2022: Nutan gives Pratham an example that every bottle has a cork made for it and each cork has a bottle made for it and if even by mistake, they are interchanged, they won’t fit. Pratham says he didn’t understand what she is saying, hope she is not saying his daughter as bottle or cork. Nutan says he is bottle and Subhadra is cork. Pratham says just like Shashikant is bottle and she is cork. Nutan says her son is very innocent and simple boy while Sonam is advanced and loves working in office, so she will not work in kitchen or take care of house; her son since the beginning is habituated to get things on his table without effort, but if he marries Sonam, he has to wash his clothes and cook for himself, so his and Sonam’s Jodi won’t match, it is better he takes back his daughter from here. Sonam hears their conversation. Pratham notices her and says she doesn’t have to listen to Nutan and get disheartened. Sonam gifts her handmade bag from old clothes and says she thought she has changed after morning’s event.
Sonam says it is not a question of changing or not, it’s a question of her family’s unity and compatibility, she doesn’t fit in her family. Sonam walks away disheartened. Bua walks in and praises Nutan for her act.Nutan sees Sonam sad and ask if someone told her anything. Pratham says Nutan called her cork. Whole family gathers. Dhruv says amma must have told something in Prayagraj language and they misunderstood. Sonam says it is clear now that Nutan doesn’t like her and is not happy with this alliance. Shashikant scolds Nutan. Pratham says Nutan clearly told that she doesn’t like Sonam and wants this alliance cancelled. Dhruv says he will speak to Sonam. Shashikant says he is right, he should speak to Sonam while he speaks to his Zohra jabeen Nutan. Sonam says there is nothing to speak now, Nutan clearly expressed her feelings and she is not hurt as she called Dhruv also bottle, she is angry with Dhruv that he told his parents have agreed for this marriage and she came here, but she sees that his mother is not happy with his marriage.
Dheeraj says hurdles come in marriages and asks Shashikant to describe his experience. Shashikant describes hurdles faced during his wedding and laughs. Subhadra says only thing important here is Sonam and Dhruv love each other. Dhruv says 3 parents have accepted this wedding, so soon all 4 will. Pratham says only 2 as even he is against wedding, he doesn’t want Nutan to mentally and physically torture his daughter. Sonam says if he is not convinced, let us end this alliance. She walks to her room. Dhruv tries to walk behind trying to speak, but Pratham holds him and says he cares for his daughter more than Dhruv and will not let his family hurt his daughter. Subhadra frees Dhruvs’ hand and warns Pratham that he doesn’t care for anyone, else he wouldn’t have created this drama. She asks Dhruv to go and convince Sonam. Dhruv goes and knocks Sonam’s door. Dheeraj scolds Nutan for creating this drama. Shashikant says even he doesn’t want this wedding like this and his son convincing his wife whole life, he has to find some solution. Dhruv continues convincing Sonam and says he will break the door with the count of 3. He counts 3 and pushes door. Sonam opens door just then and they both fall on floor. Sonam says she is tired of all this drama and they both tried their best to convince their parents, but his mother will not accept her.
Dhruv tells Sonam that when he doesn’t know when he will be there or not, marriage is nothing. She stops him. He says they need to be diplomatic. She says this is not democracy that she needs to be diplomatic. He says her father and his mother are against this marriage, but will accept later. Sonam says if she should inform them that they don’t care about their opinions and we will marry with or without them. Dhruv says they cannot say that. In living room, Shashikant says Dhruv is busy convincing Sonam, Subhadra is busy convincing Pratham, and he is busy convincing Nutan; it looks as if they are tryng to convince parikrama god; now they will think of wedding only after everyone is convinced. Sonam walks down while Dhruv tries to stop her. She informs family that they have decided to marry at home temple right now without bothering about family’s opinion. Family stands shocked. Sonam says it is Dhruv’s idea. Dhruv nervously says he saw it in films that families accept after marriage and happy ending happens. Sonam says there is no other option as his mother calls her cork and disrespects her even before marriage.
Dhruv says it looks as if he is dying to marry her, let us cancel this wedding. Sonam says he is right and tells Pratham let us go back home. Pratham gets happy and says he was trying to convince same thing, let us go home. Nutan and Bua also back him.Family drama continues when they hear someone singing outside. Sonia opens window. Shashikant peeps out and says inspector Khan is singing. Inspector says they have come to pick up Corona patient from their neighborhood, but he is hiding out of fear. Family panics and thinks who must be the patient. Sonam’s brother says someone must have traveled. Sonia jokes that even he traveled from Mumbai and Mumbai is a hotspot, so they must have come to take him away. He gets tensed. Sonia then sees neighbor Krishna bhaiya hiding on his terrace water and signalling her to keep silence. Tanu joins them, and he signals even her. Pratham panics thinking whole area will be quarantined and won’t be able to return to Mumbai. He confronts god that just because he didn’t visit him when he got his last contract, he is locking him here; prays to help him. Tanu hearing him says they can go with a medical emergency certificate. He gets happy hearing that.
Krishna continues to hide. Whole family gathers outside and continue their drama. Sonam joins them. Nutan corrects Sonam’s mask. Dhruv calls Krishna and they hear bell ringing on terrace water tank. Krishna warns that he will not come down. Inspector warns if he doesn’t come down, they will come up; he just has to be quarantined for 14 days. Sonam says he is already in fear, they should speak to him calmly. Police get ready with ladder when inspector Khan doesn’t find his PPE kit. Sonam is seen walking on Krishna’s terrace wearing PPE kit to convince Krishna. Family panics seeing that.
