Broken Bonds 21 January 2023: Roli gives Rishi things and says exchange policy. You take all this and tell me why is mama upset and what was she talking to you about? He says I don’t want anything and I won’t tell anything. She hangs his binoculars out of the window and says if you don’t tell me I will throw it out. He says don’t, I will tell you.
Kuldeep comes home. He says very tired, had a very stressful day. Where are the kids? Shubra is silent. Kuldeep says what hapepned? Shubra says where were you? I kept calling. He says it was silent, I was in a meeting. Shubra says you were staying with Rajesh.. He says Rajesh? I mean. He’s in hospital. He’s getting better. He will stay there for another day. I went to the office. Shubra says whenever kids or I need you, you’re not there. Rishi fell you weren’t there, Roli drowned, you weren’t there. Where were you? He says I said sorry already. How many times will we talk about it? Shubra says Rishi isn’t well. He is scared. Did something happen? Kuldeep says he was scared because Roli fell in the pool. You know him. What do you wanna hear? Shubra says I know you’re not happy with your job but is there anything you wanna tell me?
Rishi says aai locked the door because there’s a pimple on my bum. He takes the binoculars and runs. Roli says don’t mess with me. Kuldeep says what do you mean? I don’t know why I can’t trust you.. He says what can I do? She says make me understand. I want to. Is there any problem? Are you thinking about Samaira’s job offer. Kuldeep is shocked. Kuldeep says I can’t think about it with all the work. Shubra says she didn’t call and ask about it? He says she doesn’t have a useless job like me that she can keep calling me. Please stop messing with my head. Let me live. He leaves. Shubra says when did these lies come between us. I will find out why did you ask Rishi to lie to me.
Shubra asks the kids to eat the food. Shubra says I am going out for some work. Locking the door from the outside. Rishi says aai are you okay? She says yes. Shubra says take care of each other. Rolui says I will teach him a lesson.
Kuldeep is in the office packing his things. Shubra comes to Kuldeep’s office. The receptionist sends her inside. Kuldeep goes outside from the other side. Shubra says Rajesh all fine there. She says Rajesh.. He says bhabhi. Shubra says how are you now? He says I am perfectly fine. What would happen to me? Shubra says in her heart that means he never met an accident, it was a lie. Rajesh says you must have come to see Kuldeep but he left already with his stuff. Shurba says stuff? Rajesh says he resigned yesterday so he packed his stuff. What hapened? Didn’t he tell you? Shubra recalls Kuldeep saying he didn’t decide anything.
Kuldeep takes the stuff to Samaira’s car. Samaira says finally you’re free. You will love your new job. It will be so motivating. Let’s go. Samaira is walking on the same pavement but she didn’t see them. Kuldeep leaves. Shubra gets an auto. Shubra sees the car. She sees Kuldeep and Samaira together in it. She’s shocked.
Samaira asks Kuldeep did you tell Shubra you accepted my offer? He says no. Shubra sees them in the car together. He says I will tell her when I go home. I have to tell kids as well. Samaira says I know you will miss kids. You can come on weekends. In your absence, your family will realize your importance as well.
Rishi hears noises from the room. He’s scared. Rishi says is it you Roli? Roli is disguised as a ghost. He runs. Roli says I am a ghost, you didn’t tell Roli what happened yesterday. He says yesterday when Roli was drowning.. Papa didn’t get a call. Samaira aunty came and papa hugged her. Roli says what?
Samaira and Kuldeep come to a cafe. He says I don’t know how will Shubra react. She says you are not a kid. You can decide for yourself. You will come to Mumbai and get many opportunities. She gives him an envelope. It’s his offer letter. Kuldeep is shcoked. SHe says I knew you would agree so I got it. He says thank you. She says thank you. You will come there and see how your dreams will come true. He says thank you. She says get me coffee. They offer coffee. Samaira comes there. Shubra and Kuldeep are shocked. She sits with them.
Roli says you reacted so much on such a small thing. He says Roli you were sacring me? She says I wanted to find out. Rishi says it isn’t a small thing. Roli says hugging isn’t a bad thing. ROshi says you hug people you love. What if papa brings Samaira aunty home? Roli says but he did. SHe is his friend. Rishi says why did he lie then? He lied to mama as well.
Shubra smiles and says why are you both worried? Kuldeep says what are you doing here? She says I am your wife. I don’t need anyone’s permission to have a cup of coffee with you. You two are here for coffee right? Samaira says we came for an important project’s discussion. Shubra says oh really? I went to your office Kuldeep.
Rishi says Roli, if papa starts loving aunty more? What if he leaves mama. Rahul’s papa left his mom and when to his friend. She says but what is divorce? Rishi says I told you when mama papa break up forever. Then they don’t patch up. Where will we live? Roli says our parents will always live together. They love each other. Rishi prays that they never break up. Roli gives him cookies. He hugs her.
The Waiter serves coffee. Kuldeep says let me tell you Shubra. Shubra says you said Rajesh met an accident, but he was perfectly fine. There was no bandage. Kuldeep says you’re getting it wrong. Shubra says tell me the truth. Samaira says listen.. She holds Kuldeep’s hand under the table. He leaves her hand. Shubra says listen Samaira ji, this is our personal matter. He’s my husband. Let him talk. Some discussions are done with family, not outsiders. And I wouldn’t want to discuss our personal matters in front of an outsider anyway. You can discuss it when you’re home. You came here to discuss an important project anyway. Can you tell by when will you come? It’s okay, take your time. She leaves.
Kuldeep says I have to go, I have to talk to her. Samaira holds his hand and says you won’t change your decision right? He says let me talk to her. ANd I will call you, you don’t call, please.
Rishi says aai didn’t come. Go wash your face. Roli says I will scare mama and papa both. He says no one will be scared. She says I will show you. Roli throws flour all over. Rishi says don’t do this. He gets scared. Rishi says don’t do this Roli. He runs. Rishi throws pebbles in her way. Roli throws water on him. She throws flour on him. They both play with flour.
Aaji calls Kuldeep. She says what was Rishi saying? Do you have any shame? You ruined my daughter’s lief and now roaming out with another girl? He says it isn’t like that. Aaji says who is that woman? And what is your relationship with her? Aaju takes the phone and puts it on speaker. Kuldeep says you have the right to question me. I will speak to Shurba, you left both of us. Aaju says I kept asking you not to meet them but you did. The way he spoke to you, I won’t tolerate it. No manners, no money, that’s the man he chose. If you meet them now, it won’t be good. He told you not to interfere. Swear on me, you won’t now. He leaves. Aaji cries.
Kuldeep says Shubra please stop. It’s not what you think. Shubra moves his aside and goes home. They open the gate and the whole house is messed up. Shubra says where are the kids? Roli.. Roshi. Suhbra looks for them. Kuldeep finds them under the bed. Kuldeep says so you two are here? Shubra says why are you both under the bed? Kuldeep says what is all this? Roli says it’s me. He says I am speaking to Rishi. Come out. Shubra gets them out. Shurba says what did you guys do? Kuldeep says you messed the whole house. You will clean it now.
You both will clean the lounge and I will clean the room. Shubra says stop. I will clean it. You both clen yourself. Roli says never elave me with him never again. Rishi says never leave me with her. Shubra says enough. Kuldeep says don’t outlet my anger on kids. Shubra says go get fresh and go to Sanjana’s place to play. The kids go.
Kuldeep says Shubra listen.. I.. Shubra walks past him and starts cleaning.
Shubra says you have lied to me, hid so many things. Roli was drowning, you were with Samaira and close to her. Rajesh never met an accident. Tell me what is happening? You lied and asked Rishi to lie as well. After seeing all this how can I trust you? He says okay, no more lies to you.
Sanjana gives milk to the kids. Sanjan says let’s play together. Roli brings all the kids. She says let’s play together. Roli says there was a ghost in the house. Rishi says the entire house messed, aai will have to clean. Roli goes out.
Kuldeep says I agree I lied. But samaira only knows us here. I agree samaira came to meet me. She wanted to convince me for the Mumbai job and she was leaving so only hugged as a friend. Shubra says but she never left. And
you didn’t say no to her. Kuldeep says I thought about it and thought I will get such a good salary, benefits and everything. Shubra says so you said yes to Shubra and didn’t even tell me. He says she even gave me the appointment letter. Shubra falls. He says please sit here. He says we can’t do things for our kids because of financial constraints. We will be able to do things for them now. I am doing everything for our kids. If you think this is wrong, I will say no to Samaira.
The kids come back home. Shubra says don’t run. The floor is wet. Kuldeep looks at Shubra. Shubra says to Roli why did you bring this perfume home? Kuldeep says you stole? Shubra says I teach you people never to pick things from other people’s house. Roli says it’s only a perfume. Rishi says no, she stole many things. He says see all these things she stole. Roli says all my friends have good things. You don’t buy me things I like. Shubra says so you will steal? Kuldeep says I am so upset. How could you do this? Roli cries. Shubra hugs her and says Rishi doesn’t have these things either. He didn’t steal. Roli says I didn’t steal, I liked them. Shubra says if you take anyone’s things without telling them, it’s theft. When I have a lot of money I will buy you things you like. Promise me you won’t steal again. Roli says promise. Shubra says you will return it all. Roli says is papa mad? Shubra says no, pack your bag, I will talk to him.
Shubra cries. She hides behind the door and cries. Shubra comes to Kuldeep and says food is ready. He says I am not hungry. Give me poison. My kids are stealing. We are not good parents. Shubra says it’s not like that. He says we are unable to get them things they like. Truth is that, a mother gives manners to kids, but is this what you teach them? You have only one responsibility to handle kids, I am out for work. I told you this job isn’t for me, but you keep stopping me. You never let me utilize my talent. Food is burning, Shubra holds it from her hand. Kuldeep says what are you doing.. Come with me.
He a washes her hand and says sit here. Shubra is upset. The song mein phir bhi tumko chahungi plays. He puts a cream on her burn. Shubra says in heart am I being insecure? He cares so much about my little pain, how can he break my heart? Am I being a hindrance in his success? I couldn’t be a good mother or a good wife.
Shubra ignores Kuldeep. He sits down to eat. Kuldeep says you were saying I should get another job in Pune, would you also do job? Shubra looks at him. She nods. He says okay. What salary can you get? 15k? 10k? Even if we combine it, it would be less than half of what Samaira is offering. But you would say Kuldeep stay here, eat and only sleep. Have nothing else in life. I try very hard, he says this appointment letter, my key to bright future, he tears it. Kuldeep says be happy now. I will stay in this well. I will stay here. See your kids being thieves. You would be super proud. Shubra says will taking this job solve all our problems?
He says what difference does it make? She says I want to know. He says double salary and everything else will be covered. Shubra says if you think so, do this job. He says are you sure? Shubra says yes. Parents can do anything for their kids. I can’t my kids taking the wrong path. I am a mother, if not good. Your dreams will fulfill as well. He says I will have to go to Mumbai. Shubra says call her. I know this letter isn’t needed. Kuldeep says all our problems would solve. I will clear all medical bills. We would be able to go abroad as well. We will buy our own house as well. You can take time for yourself too when we have maids. She says don’t worry about me, I will be happy if you and kids are happy. Kuldeep hugs her.
