Curse of the sands 28 September 2021: It was morning. Ananya comes downstairs and watches Amar and Ketki together. She signals to Rekha that they look so happy together. Amar and Ketki stand up when alert. Ananya says Amar is a nice and handsome guy at home, why she is finding a proposal for Ketki then.
Rekha says she has noticed they spend a lot of time together as well. Amma ji and Kamal also come outside. Ananya says Amar is also an heir of Royal family and has palaces and property on his name. Even Shiv named his property after Amar. Amma ji happily announces that Rekha and Ketki both like Amar, she has no problem with it. Ananya cheerfully sings, “Wah wah Ram Ji”. Amar says he can’t marry now, he hasn’t even spoken to his brother. Amma ji assures she would speak to Shiv.
Rekha tells Ketki to thank Ananya, she got her what she always wanted. After Ketki and Rekha had left, Ananya suggest Amar to select a venue for his and Ketki’s honeymoon now; she will buy the tickets as gift of his wedding. Amar leaves in distress.
Amma ji held the bottle in which Sunanda had been locked. She laughs at her condition. Sunanda requests to spare her, she isn’t a witch. Kamal and Rekha come to the room and finds Amma ji laugh hysterically at an empty bottle. Amma ji says it was a dream that she has enclosed Sunanda in the bottle. Kamal says we will need soil from her feet. Amma ji had planned to keep a close eye on Sunanda and gather any dust under her feet.
Amar comes to the room. He thinks he must do something to impress Ananya. Shiv comes to Amar with an idea for Rose Day, so that he can impress Ananya. Amar hugs Shiv thankfully. Ketki comes to the room and says he came out to be a cheater, not friend. He is planning a rose day with his brother, what about them? Amar clutches her neck and says nothing for Ketki. She must remember not to stop him celebrate anything with Ananya; else he will kill her. She must as well stop dreaming about Shiv, because soon he will kill Shiv too. Ketki trembles and thinks she was a fool to have trusted him. She must do something soon. She fears being married to Amar.
Ananya comes to the roof where Sunanda sat. She tells Sunanda that Amar and Ketki like each other and Rekha and Amma ji approve of their proposal. Sunanda agrees, saying Amar is a lone guy and it’s not appropriate he lives here like this. If he rejects the proposal, he has no right to stay in the house. The family hasn’t yet accepted Shiv as well. Mishra ji comes upstairs and says Sunanda can never be wrong. Amma ji was offended for him siding the witch. Ananya hugs Sunanda after they had left.
At night, Amar comes to the girl’s room where Ketki and Ananya were asleep. He brought balloons and a rose bouquet and cautiously decorates the room. He sets the alarm for midnight and leaves the room. Ketki was awake and watches the decoration in the room. Ketki thinks she needs to cut poison with poison, else this Ananya will get her married to Amar. She opens the wardrobe and the balloons falls off. She collects the rest of balloons.
Amma ji, Kamal and Rekha come to Sunanda’s room. Amma ji make sure that none had walked into the room except Sunanda. Sunanda lay on the bed, asleep. They collect the mud from the floor and cautiously collects it in the bottle. Amma ji tells Rekha to clear the rest of mud. Kamal place the bottle of mud on a table. Someone switches the bottle on the table, it was Jalebi. She wakes Sunanda and shows her the changed bottle. Sunanda hugs her for all her favors. She asks Jalebi whose mud was given. Jalebi gets in her pallu and replies, she will have to wait and watch who gets enclosed in the bottle.
Amar comes to Shiv’s room and says he did what Shiv asked for. He wish Ananya likes it. Shiv says such minor gestures are a reason of deepened love.
The alarm bell rings. Ananya was being irritated and asks Ketki to close the alarm. She opens her eyes and see it was only 12, and startled to find her room filled with red roses and decorations. She cheers that Shiv meant to bring her the surprise. She reads a note, ‘look at those balloons once more, and work hard for a gift”. Ananya happily takes the challenge and starts bursting the balloons. Shiv and Amar stood outside. Ketki smiles from behind that she would love to see Ananya and die, as there is only poison in those balloons.
Shiv and Amar were cautious as they couldn’t hear anymore bursts from the balloons. They get tensed. Shiv sniffs something wrong. He peeks from the door’s lock hole and finds Ananya roll on the floor, badly chocked. He tries to break the lock of the door. Ananya had fallen faint by the time.
The family gather around as Shiv struggles to open the door. Kamal asks them to break open it anyways. Shiv and Amar push the door together. Ananya lay on the floor, faint. Shiv sprinkles water on her face, then checks his nerve. Ketki smirks. Shiv tries to wake her up. Sunanda asks him to take Ananya outside, she might gain conscious in fresh air. Amar was left alone in the room. He watches the balloons all over the floor and wonders where these balloons came from. He smells a few and thinks there is poisonous gas in these balloons. He was sure it was someone’s game play.
Shiv brings Ananya to the room, and asks the family to call the doctor. He bolts his room door, and tries to wake Ananya; rubbing her hand and feet. He prays for a way out. He spots a ball in the throat of God’s pic in front of him. He takes his Rudraksh off his throat and sucks on Ananya’s mouth. His own throat chokes and he runs out. Fire emits out of Shiv’s mouth as he pukes outside in the backyard.
Sunanda watches this from the window. She thinks what if the devil inside Shiv is awake, it will ruin everything. She calls Amma ji’s attention and says Ananya’s condition seems to be worsening. Outside the room, family discuss the doctor is reaching soon.
Ananya wakes up and murmurs Shiv’s name. She requests him a surprise even when in dreams. The doctor had reached. Shiv tires his Rudraksh once again. He opens the door for doctor. The doctor examines Ananya then assures there is nothing to worry.
Mishra ji says Amar took the balloons to Ananya’s room. Amar silently regrets that he can’t even tell them these aren’t the balloons he had taken. Amma ji also questions Amar. Kamal holds him by collar and threatens they must have handed him to police had he not been Shiv’s brother. They were about to throw him out of the house. Sunanda thinks what will happen to her aims then. She stops Kamal, as Amar is the brother of Shiv. The family wasn’t convinced and orders him to leave right away. Amar takes a glance of Sunanda. Shiv calls him from behind but he walks outside anyways. Ketki smirks devilishly.
Later at night, Ketki sat on the roof with all the balloons. She flies each of them in the air, counting them as a symbol of her love for Shiv. Amar comes from behind and says this isn’t fair. He had come to clear a misunderstanding, why Ketki played the game with him. She became his friend, then double crossed him. He pulls Ketki’s hand and asks why she trapped him when the trap to kill Ananya was hers. Ketki asks if Amar has forgotten his own words. She couldn’t bear anyone in her love for Shiv. Amar intervened forcefully, he and Ananya are side-actors in this game. She planned to send Ananya to her mother, and Amar to jail. Amar complements Ketki’s game. He says it’s not a must that every love is accomplished. He turns to leave, wishing Ketki a happy life with her Shiv.
He now announces a surprise gift for Ketki, turns the lights on and the whole family stood on the other side of the corridor. They recall, Shiv had come to stop Amar and was sure Amar couldn’t do any such act. Amar convinces the family that he took the balloons to Anaya’s room but someone replaced them. Shiv requested the family some patience, and Amar will surely prove his innocence. Amma ji had agreed. The family now charge at Ketki. Sunanda walks ahead with tears in her eyes and gives multiple slaps to Ketki.
She questions how Ketki could fall to such an extent, if this is her brought up. Shiv questions who would now punish her, because they were sending his brother to jail. Sunanda decides she will do it, she is the mother. Amma ji calms Sunanda down.
The doctor comes to inform the family that Ananya is out of danger. She needs rest and they can meet her later. Sunanda walks downstairs behind Shiv. She boasts about her luck that he is Ananya’s husband. He can take care of her, and even fight with her family for her sake. She has no words for what he is about to do for her tomorrow. Amar overhears the conversation from upstairs and wonders what she is talking about.
