Jodha Akbar 2 June 2021: Ruks is wondering if Jalal got her gift and his whereabouts. adham sees tanim(young girl that he is eyeing) in her house and comes to that girl’s house, she welcomes him.
They say they nothing to give him, adham says you have much to give me, he ask her mother that you are shahi servant then why you are poor? Girl’s mother(shahi servant) says that my husband is addicted to drinking, he takes all my money. Adham goes to see husband and thinks that he is addicted and i will take advantage of it, he says to drunk man that i like drinking also so come sometime we will drink together, man says i am nothing in front of you, adham says i want to take your family to malwa , i will appoint your husband there, they thanks adham, adham says do come in jalal’s bday celebration and bring tasnim( young girl of servant), he gives them some money and leaves, tasnim praises him.
jalal and jodha are walking in village in ordinary clothes, they see all are happy bcoz of jalal’s bday, he says to jodha that look people celebrate my bday, if i wouldnt be wearing these normal clothes they would have recognized me, jodha says wrong if you had you sword and turban, they would have recognized you, jalal ask the meaning. Jodha says they are afraid of your sword, jalal says so they should as i am a king, some man recognize jalal, jalal says to jodha look they recognized me without sword, jodha still believes that they are afraid of him.
They move forward and see some men praying, jalal says lets go i am thirsty, jodha says 1st listen to them they are more thirsty,Jalal asks them about their worry and they tell him about the water. He announces that a well will be dug up the very day and they will not have any issues in putting forth their queries in open court hence. jodha is happy.Jalal asks Jodha about the gift but she says that he will get it soon
ruks is thinking that why jalal didnt come to me yet and where is rahim, some servant gossips that rahim is very naughty, he make us running all the time, hoshiyar says he is just a child, search him. Ruks sees dates lying on ground and thinks rahim like it very much, she finds rahim and ask whether he told jalal about clue, rahim doesnt remember so ruks says i will complain to salima that you didnt do my work, he says it was our talk so why include salima and says i told jalal about tulsi.. Ruks ask tulsi or neem? Rahim corrects it saying neem, ruks thinks then why jalal didnt come yet, rahim offers her dates, she denies having it.
jalal comes back to palace, adka wishes him and ask why are you wearing these clothes, jalal says i also dont know, only jodha knows it, he ask adka why are you tensed, adka says you were missing so i was tensed, jalal says you are experienced and you know wives like to make husbands keep walking behind them, adka smiles, he ask adka to make well in village, adka agrees and goes, jalal looks at jodha, she ask what? He says i cant understand women, he ask for gift, jodha says wait for some more time, 1st you should find ruks gift, he leaves, jodha keep smiling looking at him.
in night, jalal is walking in palace, all gossips why jalal is wearing these clothes, rahim comes and ask why wearing such clothes? Jalal says to give respect to jodha’s gift, rahim ask whether you have gone to neem plant? Jalal says you said tulsi plant, rahim says you heard it wrong and i had to bear the wrath of ruks, now go there, jalal says ok, jalal comes to neem tree and sees arrow towards a room, he opens it when bright yellow light comes out, he says subhanallah its best gift.
in hall, all are waiting for jalal to start celebration, he comes in, all gets up, he is dressed in unique shiny yellow dress. Ruks is happy, hamida says to ruks that your gift is amazing, jalal comes to ruks and says no doubt this dress is amazing as it has gold work which will protect me in war and i will shine as a king, he says in court that i always say that ruks has amazing sense and her gift is great. Adka says common people want to see you, jalal comes in balcony along with other mughals and jodha, people say that you did great by ordering to dig well, we are greatful to you as now we will get water, may god bless you.
They chants jalal’s name, hamida ask what you did today? He says nothing i just ordered to dig well, hamida says its not small for thing for them, jalal thinks of jodha’s words that you will get your gift, hamida says for a king, people’s blessing is everything, maybe he it will not protect you like gold cloth in war but their prayers will keep you save in battle field, i am happy that your both wives gave great gift, one increased your honor by gold cloth and other increased respect as a king, jalal thanks jodha silently.
jalal comes in hall and announces that i was wrong ruks gift was not better then jodha, all are shocked, he says she gifted me people’s blessing which will be with me always. Servant brings that ordinary suit gifted by jodha, jalal says jodha made me realize what it is like for a common man to wear these clothes, she made me show their problem, which is must for a king, today i know that king is not known by his cloth but by his respect in comman man, he ask jodha to come and sit with me to increase respect of this ordinary cloth, jodha is super happy and gets up to sit beside jalal.
ruks is in rage and breaks mirror of her room, she is uncontrollable, hoshiyar ask her to calm down as jodha has no brain. Ruks says i know there is nothing between her and jalal but she is very much clever and played a game which paid off well. ruks is very angry and says she(jodha) did competition with me, i know she is nothing in front of me but i will make her suffer much that she will not be able to stand in front me.
Outside jalal is thoughts. In her room jodha sees bansuri and feather of peacock and thinks how she said its best gift ever. She puts both on kahna and prays.
Outside jalal remember his encounter with jodha like gangaur, jail etc when he first gone to amer and then the gift of jodha that is his people chanting his name. Soul talk- jalal’s soul says you changed my life that day mariam zamani, you waked me up from sleep that day, ruks gift was eye catching but you made me realize that for a king clothes are not important but his respect in people, you did magic in that one moment, jodha says one moment is enough for life, jalal says i kept thinking about you and couldnt control myself, i wanted to talk with you so came in your knowing you may not like me coming in late hours- soul talk ends.
Jalal comes in jodha’s room, she ask you here at this hour? Jalal says i couldnt stop myself till morning, he says i want to thank you so much, your thoughts are great, he says i also thought i have everything but you proved me wrong. Jalal says when i gifted you that bansuri and feather i thought no gift can be better then it but you today made me realized the responsibility of a king, its not just to win battle but to feel pain your people, to care for them, jodha says i didnt do anything you ordered for that well but i waked the human inside you and today i got to know that you are a liar, you said you dont have heart but you felt their pain,
jalal thanks her for waking him up and prays to god looking at kahna, jodha ask what you prayed? He says i prayed that i will get gifts like this in my life every year from you. He leaves. Jodha’s soul says that day i was happy as you indirectly asked me to be with you for whole life.
Moti gives some kadha to drink to jodha, she tells about Jalal’s visit and she teases her.Rahim comes and Tasneem comes looking out for him, Jodha tells Tasneem about Rahim’s hideout, Jodha gives some meva to Tasneem.
Ruks accuses Jalal that he is getting swayed towards Jodha, but Jalal goes romantic and Ruks smiles, Jalal tells that i find that Jodha is also like a good friend, Ruks asks if she will take her place, he gives her a roundabout answer and leaves.
adham is taking massage when someone throws stone at him, he ask soldier to see who is doing that but then himself goes out to check, its non other than tasnim who is trying to catch kite from tree.
He comes to her, moti and jodha sees him with her, he ask tasnim why you threw stone at me, she says i was just trying to get my kite, he says i will help you, tasnim is reluctant, but he holds her from back and lifts her and ask to get the kite, tasnim says she dont want it, he leaves her, tasnim runs. Jodha says to moti that you were right adham has wrong intention.
jalal is playing chess with ruks, she ask him that why you are not concentrating on game? Jalal says my mind is stuck in politics, after sharif sudden dissappearance many states are without ministers.
Ruks says dont appoint one person for all four states if they are outsider, just break power and divide it into different man and those who dont share good rapport with each other so they will not stand against you. Jalal says you are good at politics, i will also discuss with maham, ruks says she will suggest adham’s name, he is not competent, he is not able to do ministry of malwa, jalal says he is a good soldier, ruks says but for a minister cool mind is needed which adham dont have. She says maham loves you but not more than adham, jalal ask her not say a word against bari ami she agrees. He defeats her in chess, ruks says i want you to win every battle.
Maham is discussing with resham about her interests in politics And how Ruks is against Adham, According to Maham Adham is best suited for the 4 states nagor mewar surta ajmer Etc.
IN court Jalal then selects husain quili for nagor as suggested by Adka khan, Jalal misses Adham in the court, he orders Adka khan to find out why was he absent
In his room Adham is dreaming of Tasnim.. Maham reminds him of his duties but he does not move, Adka khan then receives orders him to nominate the names than Adka khan tells him jalal selects ministers
Resham then informs Maham that Jalal had given away all the four ministry to others and none to Adham
Maham is furious that Jalal had taken a decision with out consulting her she feels insulted
jodha prays to kahna, moti ask what are you thinking, jodha says i am thinking about adham, tasnim is very young even then adham has eye on her, its only about thinking. Moti says it is in fate of women and we servants have to bear this as a women. Jodha says but i am queen and i will not let this happen, moti says no i wont let you do that, adham is very powerful, he will take revenge. Jodha says i am a queen if he is powerful then i am also powerful, its my duty to save, i am going, moti ask her where are you going, jodha says she is going to tasnim house, moti says she will also as she is her servant.
They comes to tasnim’s house and tell everything to tasnim’s mother but she says that adham has done alot for us, he has given job to tasnim’s father and gave beautiful necklace to tasnim. Jodha ask for these things you will give away tasnim, she says we are small people we cant do anything, we have raised tasnim but we cant do anything as adham is a great man and we will follow him. Tasnim says she dont like adham at all, he grabed her from her back, her mother ask her to shut and jodha to go.
jodha turns and sees adham standing, hes is stunned, adham greets her and says it doesnt suite a queen to be here, jodha says it even doesnt suite prince then why are you here, adham says he wanted to listen to poor people’s problem, jodha then i also came to listen to the people if they have any problem with shahi people. Adham ask meaning jodha says you very well the meaning but let me tell you that i will crush your dreams. Jodha leaves. Adham comes to tasnim’s mother, she calls out tasnim, tasnim comes out with fear, adham ask what jodha tell them, her mother tell him everything, he is furious that jodha is sneaking into his matters but ask mother to at night today with tasnim as he has something important to tell, mother agrees, he gifts tasnim kite and leaves. Tasnim breaks the kite.
maham is shouting on resham that my government is being snatched from me, and the person who is doing that is non other than jalal, i think he is not trusting me anymore, he didnt include me in jodha’s secret and now he has decided ministry about 5 states but he didnt ask for my suggestions as cheif minister. She ask pen and paper, she writes a letter to jalal and ask resham to take this to jalal now. He obliges.
Maan singh meeting Jalal with the gift from Amer and Apologizes for reaching late Due to bad weather, Jalal grants permission to Resham seeking permission to meet him with badi ammi’s message, Resham reads out Maham’s letter seeking permission to take back the post of chief minister from her and allow leaving for macca sharif. Jalal goes to meet Maham and is upset she had to seek permission to speak to him Maham pours out all her woes About how jalal had hidden facts from Maham and not consulting her in begum jodha’s fake pregnancy fiasco and distribution of ministry,
Jalal says so that was what making her angry Maham says she was happy that the child she had brought up was not in need of her any more And he is capable now and he is so strong now, Jalal explains that he was just examining himself if he was capable , Jalal says his crown was indebted to her services Maham then sheds crocodile tears about being ignored and that she wanted to relinquish her post, Jalal then assures her he will never ignore her in future and being her son he wanted to be close to his mother And being the shehenshah he ordered her not to leave the palace, Maham sheds more croc tears.
Else where in the palace Tasnim is being warned by her ammi to be obedient to Adham and do what ever he wants, Adham then drags her along force fully against her wishes On the pretext of showing her a new gift, Jodha reaches the spot and orders adham to leave the girl alone and He has no right to outrage the modesty of a girl . adham says a baandi is for him to use as he wish, Jodha then says as the begum of shehenshah she orders him to leave the girl alone And not something to satisfy his lust,
Adham -Jodha face off .. War of words .. Jo rescues the weeping terrified tasnim. Adham walks off challenging her To see what she could do to stop him and How would Jalal stop him.
jalal outside is thinking something when soldier informs that jodha want to meet you. She comes in angry. Jalal ask what happened? You didnt greet me nameste? Did i did something? Jodha says you didnt but your half brother adham did. Jalal says he is bari ami’s son, what he did? Jodha says you are equally responsible if he do something, Adham is misusing his powers to outrage the modesty of a innocent servant. She says whether it is queen or servant every one has prestige as woman and how you will protect your people when your servants in this palace are not safe. Jalal ask meaning.
Jodha tells him everything about tasnim, jalal orders soldier to tell adham to be in court tomorrow. Jodha thanks him and says i expected this from you. She leaves.
maham says to adham that why you came in jodha’s way, he says i didnt but she did. Maham says jodha will tell jalal. Adham says i have won many war for jalal, he will not do anything. Soldier comes and informs that jalal want adham to be present in court tomorrow. Maham says look he listened to jodha, i told ruks to beware of jodha earlier, but she didnt listen and now she is suffering, you will suffer also as jalal has started to listen to jodha but you only know to flirt with young girls, adham says i will not listen to any punishment now and will not accept. I like tasnim and i want her. Maham says you cant do anything, i have to do something so that you will get that girl and jalal also dont give you punishment. She says what i am going to tell you, only say this tomorrow in court. Their plan is muted
in morning, jalal comes to court, everyone is present. Jalal says usually we listen to common people in open court but today its about my family. Jodha has complaint. He ask her to tell what it is. Jodha says its about adham, she tell her complaint. Jalal says i dont want decision to be doubted so i am asking maham to take decision. Jodha is stunned. Jalal says she is his mother but i expect fair justice from her. Maham says i will give fair justice, maham ask him to stand in front of jalal and i am not your ami here but cheif minister, adham says i want to say something, maham allows. Adham says its true that i like tasnim, she is having a poor life. I want to take care of her. All are stunned. Flashbacks shows that maham told him to accept his love and they also have to show ruks that maham is more experienced in politics. Fb ends. Adham says is it wrong to love someone? I want to marry her as i am childless and also our religion allows man that he can have 4 marriages. He further says that i will marry her at any haq meher (money that groom gives to bride) she wants. All are stunned while jalal is confused.
