Imlie 23 December 2022: Imlie and Adi perform ring searching ritual. Rupali, Nishant, and Dulari/nakli naani cheer them up. Anu asks Malini how could she lose against a servant, old woman Dulari flipped her side and supported servant instead. Adi and Imlie search ring together, everyone clap for them, Nishant says their team is amazing. Adi hopes others understand it. Malini and Aparna frown hearing that. Adi gives ring to Imlie. Naani says she knew Imlie would win. Adi says she was on his side. Imlie says they both are in same team. Naani says next ritual is suhagraat and they will spend a night together. Anu tells Malini that she has only less time left and she should do whatever she can soon. Malini walks to Imlie and asks if she has cleaned the ring, she should return it. Imlie asks why. Malini says its an ancestral ring and she will give it to Aparna to keep it safely. Imlie denies and says she will wear it always. Malini insists. Imlie warns not to misbehave.
Malini says she misbehaved instead when she came between her and Adi, she doesn’t value gold anyways. Imlie says she doesn’t value gold, but its her family ring and she didn’t come in between anyone. They both pull ring and it falls down. Adi picks it and asks what are they doing. Imlie says its lose on her finger and Malini wants to resize it. He fixes it in Imlie’s ring and says its perfect, scolds Malini that she should have tried it once instead of arguing, and goes searches Sundar. Imlie tells Malini that she knows this ring is invaluable to her and wants back Adi, but she can’t as Adi loves me. Malini says she is overproud of her love, even she was and she will fight like Imlie snatched Adi from her, she will snatch back Adi from Imlie.
Imlie says when fate couldn’t separate her and Adi, Malini can’t and she shoud stop her tricks or else even she can’t protect her from Adi’s anger as Adi respects their friendship and don’t want to lose it. Malini says she is right, Adi hated her first and then loved, journey of love from hatred is tough but love from friendship is easy. Imlie says whatever she says, Seeta Maiya is on her side and Adi will see her face for sure during muh dikhayi ritual. Malini says let us see then.After sometime, Imlie speaks to Satyakam over phone and describes how she and Adi performed ritual. Satyakam encourages her.
Mithi asks not to spoil their daughter. He says he is teaching her right things and asks if she will go back to Dev’s house again. She says yes as Imlie needs her. He agrees. She says even amma/Dulari is here to support Imlie. He jokes. Imlie smiles. He says he felt very nice hearing her smile and wants to come there. Imlie asks her to continue his important work here and knows he will come here with his gun if needed. Satyakam disconnects call. Malini hears their conversation and once Imlie and Mithi leaves, she dials someone.
Rupali sees Aparna and Radha cooking and asks why are they cooking when they have hired a caterer for the function. Radha says they will not attend the function and neither their relatives will as they already accepted Malini as bahu. Dulari walks in and says sasumaa is very much for her bahu and thinks if guests will attend or not, she need not worry as she has invited all neighbors and arranged pandit for the function. Rupali praises her. Aparna says when they will not bless her, Dulari has to arrange blessings from neighbors. Imlie walks in and asks Rupali if she can wear her sari. Rupali says doesn’t need her permission to wear her saris and asks if she wants to shop for a new sari. Imlie says no. Dulari says she will wear Rupali’s sari as a bahu wears saas’ gifted sari and hence Aparna should gift saris to Imlie. Aparna gives her old saris to Imlie kept for poor.
Rupali asks how can she still consider Imlie as a servant. Radha backs Aparna. Dulari enters and comments. Imlie asks her not to scold her maa, thanks Aparna for gifting her saris and walks away. Rupali confronts Aparna that she didn’t have problem with Imlie before she found about Adi and Imlie’s relationship, but now is spoiling the family environment with her hatred. Aparna warns to behave with her. Imlie walks in wearing lehanga choli made by Aparna’s gifted sari. Rupali praises that she turned Aparna’s sari into a beautiful lehanga choli so soon. Aparna says Imlie tricked her and took muh dikhayi sari, how will she get muh dikhayi gift by sasural, new bahu is welcomed by sasural and Imlie is not.
Malini tells Adi that she wants to buy a muh dikhayi gift for Imlie. Adi says why will she as in-laws give gifts and not sister. Malini says Aparna, Radha, and Harish will not gift Imlie, so she wants to gift her. Adi says she thinks of her sister so much and agrees to accompany her. Imlie walks in. Adi says her sister cares for her so much and is taking him to buy muh dikhayi gift for her. Imlie says she doesn’t need any gift and he shouldn’t go. He holding Imlie says he will return before 6 p.m. Malini walks away unable to bear their romance. Adi convinces Imlie. She applies nazar kajal behind his ear and gets closer to him. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.. song plays in the background. She kisses his cheek, and he walks away smilingly.
Anu cries looking at Aditya’s pics. Adi walks to her and says he is going for Imlie’s muh dikhayi ritual shopping and wants her to accompany them. Aparna asks if he is reminding her the responsibility of a saas/MIL, does he remember responsibilities of a son. He says he remembers everything, he didn’t expect her to punish him for his mistakes and stop talking to her. She used to think her son will never disobey her. He says he loves Imlie immensely. She asks if he loves Imlie so much that he doesn’t value their love. She says she speaks whatever she likes without thinking what he feels, he misses his mother being in the same house and even she is missing him and looking at his pics, she used to scold him and then love whenever he used to return from assignment, he doesn’t remember when she prepared kheer for him last, she should drop her anger as he is missing her a lot, he is not telling this in the greed of kheer.
She says she will try. He asks to prepare kheer or forgive him. She says both. He hugs her and says I love you mom and walks away. She continues crying emotionally.Imlie gets ready for muh dikhayi ritual. Rupali and Nishant praise her beauty. Ilmile asks if Adi returned. They say he must be on the way and asks her to come out soon as guests are eager to meet him. Imlie wears veil and thinks Malini will not let Adi return home on time before muhurat and prays god to fail her plan. Adi in jewelry shop reminds its already 5 p.m. and they need return home. Malini tries to keep Adi busy trying different jewelries and buying gifts for Aparna and others.
He hurriedly buys jewelries and rushes in his bike with Malini as pillion. Satyakam notices them. At home, Dulari greets all the guests for her granddaughter’s muh dikhayi ritual and says she brought a special gift Pagdandiya’s devi maa’s special sindhoor which will keep their husband bonded to them forever and sells sindhoor box for 20 rs. Guests buy sindhoor from her. Aparna feels embarrassed. Anu says these people will not change. Dulari calling her Kalini’s mother asks to buy sindhoor. Anu angrily shouts her daughter’s name is Malini. Dulari asks if she thinks its costly, she will give it for 10 rs. Anu warns her to keep her mouth shut. Dulari asks Harish to buy next.
Harish asks what kind of a woman she is to sell sindhoor to guests. Aparna asks how much will she embarrass them more.Mithi and Rupali bring Imlie with veil on and asks everyone to welcome new bride. Pankaj praises Imlie’s beauty. Dulari asks Imlie about Adi. Imlie says he has gone out. Guest comments that groom is taking more time than bride. Rupali sees Anu smirking and thinks if Malini is purposefully getting Adi late. Guests discuss that Aparna told Imlie is a servant, they are getting late waiting. Dulari says how can they get bored in his granddaughter’s function, she will entertain them. She wearing a funky google dances on Chadti Jawani Meri Chaal Mastani.. song and pesters Aparna and Radha. Imlie supporters join her. Harish also dances with them.
Aditya reaches home with Malini and says they reached home 5 minutes before muhurat. Satyakam walks to Adi. Adi says he came at the right time, its Imlie’s muh dikhayi ritual. Malini walks into house saying she will call Imlie out and thinking she will make them miss the muhurat. Imlie asks where is Adi. Malini informs that her dadda is waiting for her outside. Imlie rushes towards door. Satyakam tells Adi that he needs to talk to him something important and asks him to accompany him as someone is following him. Adi agrees. Imlie’s veil falls down and she seeing Malini behind warns her not to fight against fate as fate on her and Adi’s side and not Malini’s.
She hears bike sound and rushes out to see Adi driving bike away with Satyakam, asks Malini what did she say Dadda. Malini says she didn’t say anything and calls Adi. Imlie snatches her phone and speaks to Adi who says he is going with Satyakam as Satyakam is in some problem. Imlie wears her veil back taunting Malini that her plan will fail and walks back inside house. Satyakam takes Adi to a secluded place and shoots him. Adi falls down unconscious. Imlie senses Adi’s life in danger when her veil falls down.
