Jodha Akbar 16 April 2021: Jalal is shown disguised as a rajputi sainik. He enters the jail along with a small unit of soldiers. Meanwhile,J and Suryabhan were on their way,along with them,was shivani,a few soldiers and few maids.
Assoon as they enter the shahi-kaaragarh, jalal comes forward to help the other soldiers with Jodha’s paalkhi.As the paalkhi is finally stationed inside the shahi-kaaragarh,Jodha comes out of her paalkhi and Jalal sees Jodha again.
Suryabhan and Jodha walk towards the keidis Jalal is shown closeby.He overhears their conversation. Suryabhan asks Jodha,that why was it so,that while other women her age asked for clothes and jewellery,she asked for Jalal’s head?
Jodha’s furious thinking about Jalal again,she gives a a very detailed description of the brutality he had caused or so she had heard him do.
Jalal who had been very calm and smiling listening to their converstion,burns in anger as he hears Jodha say such mean things about him.
A part of him look shocked,a part of him disappointed and anothe paer part,the egoistic emperoror part,definitely angry.His ego seemed hurt.
As he moves along,he hears some maids praising Suryabhan and how he suits Jodha.
Jalal’s filled with rage again.He also hears the maid talk about the mughal keidi and about where he was being held.
Jalal rushes towards Abdul and it seemed almost as though he was going to declare a face to face war against the enemy.
But no,the ‘master of disguises’ wouldn’t let go of his act that easily.
He shoots out harsh words at abdul and says that he should not be allowed to breathe,must be killed.
A fellow soldier tags along and says that, death would be a lighter punishment for the mughal,he should be tortured and that is exactly what we are going to do.
Abdul who was fully exhuasted and clearly in pain,didn’t just shut up,he striked back at that soldier and said that his shahenshah would free him,right in front of their eyes and that wouldn’t even know.
Abdul now looks up to see Jalal and his eyes clearly showed relief,.Jalal returns that look.
Cut to,Bhaarmal’s court.Sangram Singh comes with news that Jalal is known for disguising himself and entering the enemy clan before the war.Obviously,to know more about the enemy kingdom,war tactics etc.Bhaarmal takes it lightly though,stating that he cannot beat the Amber’s soldiers.
Meanwhile Jodha and Suryabhan reach this part of the kaaraghar.While all the other inmates of the jail were being loaded with gifts,Suryabhan refused to give Abdul anything,sinc ehe was a Mughal.
Abdul strikes back again saying,his shahenshah is close.Pretty close and they can’t even have a clue about his whereabouts.He might be so close,that his shamsheer(sword) can put an end to this one swing.Jalal was actually holding a sword in his hand and was hardly a few feet away from them.
Jodha retorts saying Jalal can in no way have so much guts.Jalal is filled with wrath again.
As suryabhan and Jodha are about to leave,Jodha’s eyes fall on Jalal and she is star struck again
Jodha grows suspicious.
She immediately snatches a sword from Suryabhan and places it right at Jalal’s throat.
She asks him what he was doing in the ghaat the other day.
Jalal gives a sracastic reply in rajputaani bhaasha.He says that he did not know they weren’t free to go as per their liking here,because in his place there aren’t such restrictions.
Jodha’s suspicion increases,she asks him where he is from.
Jalal now look sstaright into her eyes (Jodha clearly skipped a beat),smiles and says “Umarkot”.
BUt Jodha wasn’t done yet.She asks him to prove that he was a rajput soldier,afterall.
SHe asks all the other soldiers to do the same,all of them show their left arm,on which a sun was tattoed.
Jalal gave the “main toh gaya” look,but no no.The master of dsiguise believed in perfection,you see.While he killed that soldier before entering that jail,he did notice this tattoo in hi hand and hence and managed doing the same on his hand.
So,not caught,even now.Jodha,though not externally,but internally,she clerly seemd relieved that he wasn’t an enemy.The ghaat scene is shown again.
She apologises and says that,she had a hunch that he could be from the enemy clan,so she had to check.Mughals could have been anywhere and they didn’t want to take risks.
Jalal replies,saying that is true,But there is another thing he is worried about,when asked what,he says he doesn’t trust the ‘air’ as well.The enemy can come through air as well,you know.
Jodha seemed impressed with him.
In return of her faulty suspicion,to compensate for that,she says,he could punish the mughal keidi as per his wish and THAT would be his gift.With that,they leave.
Jalal need not do anything more now.His job becomes even more easier.
Meanwhile,Menavati and her jethaani come to a kali temple.Co-incidently, shaguni bai is incharge of the temple.
Menavati places the nyota(invitation) of Jodha-Suryabhan wedding at maa kali’s feet.
Shaguni bai is shown chanting some mantras
Menavati seemed proud and happy that shaguni bai’s fortune telling was wrong afterall.
She says that to her again,that Jodha will be getting married to suryabhan etc.She asks for shaguni bai’s ashirwaad.
shaguni bai says that anything you do,fate doesn’t change.
History stinks of blood and war,but whenever Jodha is spoken of,she would stand for ‘love’.
She will not only do ghood to Rajputana,but to the entire nation.
She will be married,to one of the biggest emperors in history.
Menavati,deeply annoyed again,leaves.
Meanwhile,as Suryabhan and Jodha rach the exit of teh kaaragarh,they see some soldiers carrying a cadaver.While questioning,they come to know that the soldier was found dead,seemed like the enemy was close by and can attack anytime.
At the very moment,a loud yell is heard.Everyone rushes inside,the sight in front of them was shocking.Not one soldier was left alive, everyone laid on the ground,dead.
a voiceover says that Jalal is taking away injured Abdul on his horse, the bugle of war has been blown unknowingly. Jalal wants to cature Amer by hook or crook and get Jodha in his palace/harem to teach her the lesson. Jalal was illiterate and asked Abdul to write the warning on the wall/ground of the prison.
Suryabhan motivates and encourages the soldiers to find out Jalal and the one who captures him, will be rewarded as the commander of the Rajputanas.
Jalal is surrounded by the soldiers, he is asked to surrender, he gestures and starts fighting, killing them softly,slowly and he gets the FB of Jodha’s words at the prison. With perfect deftness he kills one and all.
One of the soldier returns and takes Suryabhan, Jodha to the place of mass massacre and they are all shocked at the sight. Suryabhan takes the pledge that Jalal will have to answer for his act. Jodha is speechless and worried.
Jodha’s father, the king of Amer- Bharmal and Suryabhan are encouraging the subjects and getting ready to take revenge from Mughals for his dare devilry act and Suryabhan vows that till the time he doesnt get Jalal’s head, he is not going to marry Jodha. The ladies are all getting emotional as the war is declared and they get tensed about Jauhar.
Jodha is recollecting her interactions with Jala at the prison,almost burns her hands while remembering her vow which she took at the temple. She is disgusted with the fact that Jalal is such a coward that he was in disguise for the past 3 days and tells her mother that it was him who saw near the pond.Her mother remembers the lady’s(Shagunibai) forecast about Jodha going to Mughals house.
Some lady comes and informs that Suryabhan has refused to marry Jodha, hands a letter to Jodha which says that he wants to meet her as soon as possible.
Jodha’s mother questions her father about Suryabhan’s decision and is surprised to know that he too agrees with his line of thought.
Suryabhan tells Jodha that though they are not allowed to meet in private but he wants to clarify certain things about his decision. He tells her that he has to first think about his country and then get married. Jodha is pleased to hear this and he assures her that he will wipe out the reason who has become a reason of divide between them, Jodha gets emotional, holds his hand and tells him that she will wait for him.
The halwai seth is talking to his employee and he passes out when knows that Jalal had visited his shop.
Abdul tells Jalal that he should have got Jodha instead of him, Jalal assures him that she will soon come to him , will get attracted to him herself. He is washing his face when he saw the soldiers. He gets alert and takes out his saber.
Jalal gets ready with his saber when he sees that its his soldiers who have surrounded him and have come to take him back to his palace.
Jalal’s mother talks to a priest at Ajmer Sherief about rude behaviour of Jalal. He assures her that he will change and he will make u proud one day.Everyone will remember him and his good deeds.
Maham Anga(Badi Ammi)and Jalal are very pleased to see each other, exchange pleasantries, she finds that he is hurt and tends to him with the medicines. She asks him why was she not informed about his whereabouts, gets emotional and Jalal apologises. She tells him that he was just 14 years when he was hurt in a similar way and then Jalal rests his head on her lap and she wonders how to tell Jalal about Zahir. She asks someone about him and Jalal gets agitated and goes to check on Zahir. Jalal asks who is the culprit behind Zahir’s condition, Badi Ammi tells him in a roundabout way and Jalal is surprised to know that Bairam Khan is responsible.
He goes to Bairam Khan’s (BK)chamber. BK asks him where was he for the past 3 days and why did he not inform him as there is risk involved. Jalal tells him that he has always seen him as father and questions him about Zahir. Jalal tells him that he dissuaded Zahir so that he could go away and he did the right thing.BK asks him to punish him but he says that he wont as he is father like but he will always remember that BK was responsible for ruining the life of his most trusted aide.BK thinks that Maham Anga has told this to Jalal and she will pay for her deeds.
Jalal was not pleased that for the first time in his life he had to question BK. MM comes and he tells her that he is confused about a certain thing(BK issue). MM tells him that love makes a person week. She encourages him to be strong and his people praise him for his decisions so be cautious and firm in his convictions.
Jalal was torn between his father like BK and mother like Maham Anga.
He prays and decides that he will go and meet Ruqaiya in Agra who is his wife as he really likes her.
Some person(sorry dont know his name )–Shaifuddin(got this from wiki asks him where was he as he did not find him in forest. He tells him about the meeting with Jodha, Shaifu tells him to wage a war on Amer and Jalal tells him to wait as he wants to visit Agra first, next morning.
