Complicated Love 14 January 2021: At morning, Mauli was in the temple corner of her house doing the aarti. She recollects her memories with Ishaan and Kunal, confused about both. She thinks about Kunal’s requests to Ishaan to return his wife. Mauli comes to meet Ishaan, he was concerned if Kunal if fine that she came over so early. Mauli says she gave him the medicines last night and was asleep. She thought about meetings the kids and him. Ishaan says the kids are also sleeping and offers Mauli a cup of coffee. Mishti and Pari wake up cheerfully and hug Mauli. Mauli says she was missing them immensely and thought about meeting them before they go to school. Mauli says everything will soon be fine. Pari asks if her Buddy miss her, he has remembered everything. Mauli tells Pari that he will soon regain his memory.
Ishaan cheers the girls up saying today, they have an off from school. Mauli objects that their final exams are near and they have belle classes as well. Ishaan tells Mauli that they have prepared for the exams already and he will take them for belle himself. Mauli agrees.
Kunal dreams of Mishti being his daughter. He gets the past flashes from his accident and for recognizes Pari as his daughter. He wakes up in a state of shock. Radhika and Dida come running. Kunal asks about Pari. Radhika hugs Kunal in excitement that he is recovering. Kunal asks about Mauli. Radhika goes to call Mauli, and Dida cries hugging Kunal.Mauli turns to leave from couch with Ishaan. Ishaan holds her hand and says he is Ishaan, her lover, and a true friend. He was worried, but he can no more see her get divided into two houses. He can’t trouble her for his personal gains. He requests her to leave him. Kunal is her past and they have a daughter, she is attracted to her past memories while his loyalty attracts her here. This isn’t good for any three of us. This troubles her. She must select love from love and responsibility, she must go to Kunal. If not his companion, he can at least be her friend.
He promises to take care of the children until Kunal is fine. He promises to always be there for her, whenever needed. He has thought enough, and he thinks she must give her and Kunal’s relation a chance. Mauli objects. Ishaan says he gathered courage after much hardship, and won’t be able to do this again. He seriously believes she must return to Kunal.
Does she remember the floral path that made her fall in love with him again; or that globe of pictures? That was Kunal’s idea. He was helping him, he wished Mauli starts hating Kunal and come to Ishaan. He is a nice man; his mistake is past. Mishti will get her father, Pari get a mother and two incomplete people will be completed again. A thread of tears slips his eyes. He requests Mauli to leave, before he breaks any further. Mauli gets a call from Radhika who was in a state of panic. Mauli leaves urgently.
At home, Kunal wonders how he could forget everything. He wonders what Pari must be going through. What he has done. Dida says Mauli is an angel, she stood by their side through all the times. Kunal won’t be able to get a companion like Mauli in seven lifetimes. Radhika asks Dida not to discuss all this at the moment. Dida says Kunal needs to take care of his family, Mauli and the rest. Kunal accepts he did wrong to Mauli. Mauli returns home. Kunal apologizes Mauli, he has nothing else to say to her. Mauli smiles and replies she has forgiven him long ago.
In the restaurant, Ishaan was unable to focus on his work, he was upset and thought about his good moments with Mauli. His mother’s and Sweety’s reservations. Mishti and Pari come to the restaurant. Ishaan was distressed and hugs the girls spreading a smile over his face. Mishti asks why he called them here. Ishaan says they need to go somewhere. The girls were curious but he doesn’t reply where.
At home, Kunal assures the family that they are together, everything will be fine again. Dida joins her hands and requests Mauli to forgive her child in real. God has given them another chance, she must accept that chance; she must trust her grandson once again. Kunal tries to interrupt, Mauli’s eyes fill in tears. Dida requests Mauli to unite her family once again and return the happiness of her family.
Pari and Mishti come home. Pari was excited that Kunal was well again. Kunal accepts being a bad Buddy who had forgotten his own princess. He hugs Pari tightly claiming to have missed her. Mauli asks Mishti how they came over. Mishti says Ishaan dropped them. Dida says she called Ishaan that Kunal has regained his memory again. Dida requests Mauli to say a yes once again, and let the past replenish.
Ishaan was packing his bag. He dials his mother’s number in tears and informs her that he is coming back. Sandhya inquires if Mauli is also coming over? Ishaan says he bid her already, she won’t come; he is sorry for hurting his mother. He cries over the call, and requests her to take care of him, it’s hurting badly. Sandhya asks him to return home, she has been waiting since long. Ishaan thinks to himself that he wants Mauli and Mishti to always stay happy.
Dida continues that her eyes have been long awaiting. Mauli is a very good daughter, but they want their daughter in law back. Kunal is incomplete without her. She has longed to see Mauli and Kunal leave home for work, together; eat together and laugh together. Kunal hasn’t been able to take care of his family without her. He wandered and returned into her shelter. She requests Mauli to grant him another chance and accept this Shagun thaal.
Ishaan reaches airport to leave for Delhi.
Dida accepts that Ishaan has done a lot for her and Mishti, but he is sensible and wish to see them happy forever. She spoke to him, he understands that it’s a game of God, not anyone of them. Kunal speaks up that today, there is no pressure over Mauli. No reference of any relation or God; she must be given a free will to take her decision.
He understands that Dida wish to see them together, but not at the cost of Mauli’s happiness. She has always taken care of them, today its wrong. She has her own life as well. He says he understands Dida loves her and is saying all this, but they can’t be selfish together. Dida says she only wish themselves to live happily together. Kunal says he also wants to gather the old times again, but they can’t be selfish anymore. He already owes Mauli a lot. She has cared for his family already; they can no more be the shackles to her feet. He tells Mauli to select neither Kunal nor Ishaan, but herself. Radhika was boastful that today, her selfless son has returned. It’s now that he is back with every single lesson she brought him up with, she can now proudly claim him to be her son.
Radhika now asks Mauli not to be unfair with her own self. Mauli was thoughtful, tears floating her face.
