A lockdown love story 17 February 2022: Sheetal Bua tells that when they performed all the important rituals their whole life only after consulting pandit, why should they skip Dhruv’s wedding and invite auspiciousness. Dhruv says they were just trying for an alternative. Nutan backs Sheetal and smirks at her. Pratham says she is right, even he doesn’t do any important work without muhurath, after all it is his daughter’s wedding, so its better they postpone wedding. Nutan tells Sonam that her pa, maaji, mummy, pappa, nobody can do anything in this. Sonam gets teary eyed and tells Dhruv that she had carefully planned her wedding in 2020, he also didn’t let her do what she wanted to do before marriage. Everyone look at her suspiciously. Subhadra nervously asks what is she saying. Sonam says she wanted to go to Switzerland on a holiday, but Dhruv insisted that they will go after marriage. Shashikant says let us everyone go and rest and wake up in the morning early. Everyone disperse.
Sheetal bua with Nutan walks into her room and excitedly says Nanad-Bhauji’s jodi can do anything impossible. Nutan says she was feeling lonely without her as whenever she used to speak, Sonam used to shoot via Dhruv and Shashikan’t shoulder. Bua assures not to worry when she is with her.Subhadra confronts Pratham for lying about doing everything by checking muhurath and trying to postpone wedding, at least he should hide his happiness. He asks what is wrong in it. She says at least he should have thought about Sonam’s happiness, he ruined their happiness and they are on the verge of divorce and living separately since 1 year.Next morning, Ankita performs pooja and gives aarti to Shashikant first, then tries to feed prasad to her husband romantically, but he extends hand unromantically. Dhruv then walks to her and touches her feet. Ankita asks him why is he coming alone without his partner and asks to receive aarti only with Sonam. Dhruv excitedly walks to Sonam’s room. Sonam is busy chatting with her friend, she says she will send her wedding dress once courier services start, asks even if her wedding is postponed. Friend says her wedding is after 21-day lockdown and anyways she just have to wear the gown and get married in Church without any hassle of rituals. Sonam gets an idea. Dhruv walks in. Sonam excitedly says she got an idea to perform wedding on date.
Dhruv nervously asks her to discuss it with him first, but she drags him down and gathering whole family says she got an excellent idea which everyone would be proud of. She tells Nutan that she will be very proud of her intelligent bahu. Nutan asks what is it. She says her Christian friend is getting married in a church without any rituals or hassles, even she will do same, she just have to get a white dress. Nutan gets very angry hearing that and shouts she got Dhruv after a lot of prays and Sonam wants them to change their religion just for her wedding. She continues her drama and yelling at Sonam’s idea. Tanya tries to support Sonam, but Nutan doesn’t spare even her. Shashikant asks Ankita to get cold water and feed her saas to cool her mind. He says staying alive is more important than fighting for the religion, Sonam is a kid and spoke without thinking, but she should maintain her calm. He asks Nutan to calm down and go to her room. Nutan angrily leaves to her room. Shashikant then says Nutan is a village woman and blurts out what is in her heart without thinking, she is good at heart though, so they shouldn’t bother about her bitter words, etc
Sonam cries profusely after Nutan scolds her. Dhruv requests her to calm down as amma/Nutan’s inteiont was not to hurt her, she is old fashioned and she follows all the rituals. Sonam says she is deeply hurt with amma’s behavior, what must have parents thought seeing all this. Dhruv says amma was wrong, but she forgive amma. He starts cracking joke. Sonam starts laughing and asks to stop joking. Dhruv asks her to count till 50. She says 1, 2, 50. He asks to count properly.On the other side, Shashikant scolds Nutan for insulting Sonam when she excitedly came with an idea, she was looking like a chudail, etc. Nutan says Sonam wanted to marry Dhruv in a church, doesn’t she know that woman wears white clothes when husband dies. Shashikant says what is wrong if the girl was so excited about wedding and she just expressed her idea. He reminds her when Dhruv came with a proposal. She goes into flashback when Dhruv informs them that he loves Sonam and she completes him, she is very intelligent and he learns from him. She reacts and asks what Sonam knows about their culture, she will spoil their family, what will neighbors think, etc. Dhruv says Sonam will change according to their culture and they should give her a chance. Shashikant says if Dhruv is so confident that Sonam will change and will be perfect bahu for this family, he promises that he will do anything for Dhruv’s happiness. Dhruv happily kisses his parents’ hands and lies in Nutan’s lap. Out of flashback, Shashikant warns Nutan to behave with Sonam and never show her chudail avatar again, else he will not keep quiet. Nutan thinks she shouldn’t have promised Dhruv that day.
Sonam counts till 50 and seeing Dhruv’s friends peeping from window asks what are they doing here. Dhruv takes flowers from them and gifts her saying flowers for the beautiful lady love of his life. She asks if he showing filmy romance. He says being from Mumbai, films teach them to romance and romance is in Prayagraj. He takes guitar and sings Hum Tere Bin Rah Nahi Sakte Tere Bina Kya Wajood Mera…song.. and dances with her looking into her eyes.. Pal ek pal..song..plays in the background next. Friends close their eyes seeing their romantic dance. Sonam and Dhruv stand looking into each other’s eyes and get conscious hearing someone whistling. Friends ask who is it. UP police catches them and trashes for breaking lockdown. Sonam and Dhruv laugh.Batasha informs Tanu, Subhadra, and Pratham that food is ready. Tanu asks why didn’t he change her bed’s bedsheet. He says he just changed when they came and will change when it gets dirty. Tanu shouts he should change it daily, its an issue of hygiene. Batasha asks who got haiza/cholera.. Shasikant enters saying hygiene means cleanliness, they are right and says his zohra jabeen/Nutan got trucks of bedsheet during wedding and buys a lot regularly, so they can change bedsheet 4 times a day. He orders Batasha to change bedsheet and orders Nutan to go and get bedsheet. Nutan with Bua goes to get bedsheet fuming. They see Sonam and Dhruv’s romance and get jealous. Bua tells Nutan that Dhruv doesn’t change bedsheet even in a month, what if his wife changes it every day, he cannot handle it; she will make this understand today and make them cancel the wedding.
