Anupama 28 July 2022: Samar brings Nandini and makes her sit next to Anupaam for pooja and himself sits next to Vanraj. Vanraj angrily looks at him and chants Jai Mahakaal. Anu senses his anger and notices Nandini sitting next to her; she reminisces advising Samar to go slow. Rakhi notices Nandini and asks when did she come and thinks is there something that she doesn’t know. Baa says lets everyone get mauli/holy tread tied on wrist. Vanraj ties mauli on everyone’s wrist. Anu asks him to calm down. Vanraj says her son did what he wanted to do, now its his turn. Rakhi asks Nandini to get mali tied. Nandini nervously walks to Vanraj. Samar backs her. Vanraj ties mauli on her wrist. Dolly tells Baa that Samar and Nandini are mad and shouldn’t have created this drama. Baa says young kids don’t listen.
Dolly says let us take prasad from bhai. Vanraj distributes prasad to everyone. Samar holding Nandini’s hand extends it. Vanraj angrily crushes prasad.Samar angrily plays damroo and does tandav/dance in front of Mahadev’s idol on Shankara.. song. Rakhi hopes Samar and Vanraj’s cold war shouldn’t turn into actual war. Toshu joins Samar. Samar then drags Nandini and Anu and they all 3 dance together, leaving Vanraj more angry. Samar then holds Nandini’s hand, bites prasad and feeds it same to Nandini, and they both then touch Vanraj’s feet. Vanraj backs off and orders him to get out of the house. Samar says this is his mummy’s house and he himself is staying in his mummy’s house, then with what right he is asking him to go; its a strange thing that Vanraj is asking his girlfriend to leave, but himself is staying with his gilfriend here even after being married; if he should leave this house as a punishment, then how should Vanraj be punished; usually children boast about their father, but in his case, he can’t; Vanraj can do whatever he wants as its his mother’s house.
Anu shouts at Samar to shut up, asks if he will tell Vanraj what is house, house is not a brick and mortar structure but a place where relationships and love are; a structure can be anyone’s, but house belongs to everyone and especially father’s; he doesn’t know what all his father did for this house, but knows he is shiv bhakt and today’s pooja is so important to him, even then; she told him not to hurry up, but he didn’t listen; she told him that love is not bigger than love, even then he didn’t listen; if he thinks they are filmy hero heroine that he brought Nandini here holding his love. Samar says they love and love is not wrong. Anu says misbehavior is always wrong.Kinjal says its a small issue. Toshu yells let mummy speak. Kinjal asks if he is supporting mummy for the first time just because she is favoring papa. Toshu says whatever mummy is doing is right and Samar did wrong. Kinjal says papa is wrong and not Samar. Anu stops her. Rakhi says its not right to stop her bahu. Anu says its not right to even stop her samdhan.
Kavya taunts Rakhi she wanted her insult. Rakhi reverts back that Kavya understands Anu’s anger as she got a tight slap from her already. Anu asks Samar what will he do if someone questions her upbringing. He says he will make them apologize. She says he should apologize for what he did with his papa as her upbringing is questioned because of his act; he should not provoke shiv and shiv bhakt or else he has to bear their 3rd eye; she orders him touch his father’s feet and apologize. Baa comments that she was supporting her son earlier and now scolding him. Samar says he will touch Vanraj’s feet and even bear a slap, but will not accept that he is wrong. Vaa yells again that Anu’s pampering spoilt Samar and above Nandini ruined him, he shamelessly held Nandini’s hand and brought her here. Rakhi says all her family males are not right; Toshu eloped with Kinjal, Samar brought Nandini holding her hand, and what can she tell about Vanraj.
Baa tells at her to shut up. Samar says Kavya didn’t want to come, but he forced her to come here. Baa yells he is saying as if he did a great job. Samar asks why can’t Mr Shah understand his emotions; whenever are doing whatever they want, why can’t he; Toshu and Mr Shah’s love is love and his love is a mistake; when they can bring their girlfriends home, why can’t he; mummy told everyone has right on the house, then even he has a right and one who left the house shouldn’t have any problem if he brought his girlfriend home; mummy told a lot, but didn’t tell that one who left the house doesn’t have right to order; when Mr Shah has left the house and went to Kavya, he doesn’t have any right to interfere between their family issues.
Vanraj angrily walks away and reminisces Samar, Rakhi, Baa, Kinjal, and Bapuji’s words. Baa rushes to her and tries to calm him down. He asks her to leave him alone for sometime. She requests to listen to him. He angrily throws stuff around and shouts he is listen to everyone and now he will speak. He walks to Samar angrily.Vanraj vents out his anger on Samar. He reminds Samar of his childhood school drama where was acting as a father and returned home midway as he couldn’t hold a child for 30 min and shouts even today he respects his father and doesn’t speak loudly in front of him, he stands in respect even while speaking to his father over phone, he knows the value of father’s hard work and sweat and knows father’s sacrifice to build a house, but today his son is telling that this house is not his. Kavya comments that Samar should be ashamed. Vanraj angrily warns that only he will speak and nobody will interfere. He continues his that his son is telling that he is interfering in his family issues and he brought his girlfriend home, shouts to repeat that this house is not his.
He says Bholenath knows that he has 1000s of defects in him, but he considers his parents as his god and takes their permission to speak. He says this 40 x 60 sq feet plot has 2 storeys on it now, Bapuji had built a 1 room house on it, he turned into 2 storey house with all the luxuries needed; his family was poor and he started earning since he was 14-year-old when Samar didn’t even know to tie a shoe lace and gave the money to his mother; he used to wake up at 4 a.m. and both study and work hard; when his shirt’s collar use to tear, Baa used to turn the collar and say that she turned his collar and he should turn their fate up, he fulfilled his father’s dream of building a house and is proud of himself; they had only 1 chair at home and his father used to stand up when guests used to come saying he is tired fo sitting.
He asks Anu to explain his sacrifices to her son and continues explaining his sacrifices and says only father’s support for his family is called his duty and not favor; its all middle class father’s story that he goes home early morning and return home late night, miss all family function and children growing up; everyone discuss about mother’s sacrifice and not fathers sacrifice; there is heaven under mother’s feet, but there is a hot ground under father’s feet on which he has to walk forever; his parents had fixed his name plate on door and they threw it away; he had requested them to fix their name, but Bapuji told he want to fix his son’s name with pride. He then asks Dolly to explain what sacrifices he did for her and how he fulfill all her wishes and himself used to walk kilometers to save 40 rs, how he missed his bike EMI and bought wedding lehanga for his sister; he fulfilled all the responsibilities of a brother and not a hashtag brother of new generation.
He continues pouring his heart out. Baa crying requests him to stop. He says he respected his father, but his children don’t respect her. He made a mistake of having an affair and betrayed his wife, but his children hate him; he became old taking care of his children, but his children order him that this is not his house. He then tells Anu that his children consider him a loser, she should explain them that he is not; he wasn’t a good husband and he accepts her sacrifice for this house, his parents, his sister, his children, etc.; a father is a Santa Claus who bring gifts every day and brings all the groceries and stuff home; everyone know mother prepares food, but father brings the grocery; he should have learnt crying as mother sheds her tears and shows her emotions, but a father cannot do that and his tears come out as his anger.
He tells Bapuji that he never misbehaved with him and always respects him, but his children misbehaved with him and consider him a loser; everyone are pointing at his relationship with Kavya, it just happened and he is not characterless to run behind every woman; he made a mistake of hiding his love for Kavya and should have informed Anu long back; he wants to know if he will be punished whole life for his one mistake; he is ready for that, but cannot accept being expelled from his own house; he expects respect from his children; Bapuji did right by kicking him out of house, but he doesn’t deserve what he did today; he didn’t see that he built the house which was given to Anu;he had to go and stay at Kavya’s house and shattered each day staying away from his family; when he used to return to this house.he always wanted someone to stop him from going, he wanted Bapuji to stop him in lieu of scolding him, etc. He continues pouring out his heart emotionally.
