Lies of the heart 29 June 2020: the second hearing of the case begins. ishaan tries to say that the question isnt of the parents’ happiness, but for the child’s happiness and proper upbringing, for which samrat is a bad choice. niranjan asks for solid evidence, for ishaan to prove his case. ishaan asks him to be patient, and asks the permission from the judge to present his witness.
The judge gives the permission. ishaan presents Sangeeta jaiswal, the principal of Beautiful flowers primary school. Ishaan asks who got shaurya’s admission, and she replies that urmi did all the admission, and that samrat never came in the picture, as a normal and responsible father. ishaan asks him to elaborate.
She tells about what samrat did, in urmi’s absence, by taking shaurya and keeping him absent frim academic hours. ishaan taunts samrat that was indeed responsible. niranjan is tensed. she tells how she told urmi about this, and the fake birthday, and how urmi was oblivious of all this. ishaan asks what action did she take. She says that she gave urmi a warning, to get samrat to stop this, or she shall cancel the admission. niranjan says that the principal is lying. Ishaan asks him not to make baseless allegations, and then asks how can the court take samrat to be responsible.
He asks niranjan to question her. Niranjan says that he doesnt have any questions from her. Ishaan presents the second witness, as Mr. Tiwari, Urmi’s landlord. Tiwari ji complies, and takes the oath of truth. tiwari says that he is urmi’s landlord, and then asks why urmi couldnt go to her own house, after leaving samrat’s house, due to samrat’s fear. ishaan asks if he faced anything. Tiwari ji says that samrat scared him too many times. Ishaan asks ythe court to notice this, ishaan then asks about samrat’s nature with shaurya.
He presents the entire case, while samrat gets frustrated and tries to point out why samrat wants this child. samrat gets irritated and asks him whats he saying. Niranjan asks him to calm down, and then says that ishaan is getting hired evidences, that he also could have easily managed. ishaan says that evidences are bought and sold by people, who dont have the truth. niranjan continues to taunt, while ishaan asks him to stop being so baseless. ishaan again presents him for questions, and niranjan says that he is his witness, and it would be a waste of time.
Niranjan points out that these evidences are very weak, and hence they should have witnesses, who are close to either samrat or urmi as immediate family. Urmi is tensed as niranjan presents a dramatic portrayal of one of urmi’s relatives, who shall testify about her character, and shall settle this case once and for all, a case that is beyond materialistic ventures, and is unaffected by lies and betrayal. H
He asks he judge’s permission to call her in the witness box. the judge allows. samrat gives a thumbs up to urmi, as a taunt. All eyes turn to find who walks in. urmi is shocked to find that its saroj, in tearful eyes, her own mother. Niarnajna identifies her, and then she, with trembling hands takes the oath of truth. Niranjan tells her that he knows what she is going through, but today she would have to relieve of this stress, but he is helpless and apologetic, and hence she would have to do this, for samrat’s respect and shaurya’s custody.
Saroj looks helplessly at urmi, who is baffled and stunned. Niranjan asks her as a mother who is responsible for all this. She, with much hesitation, answers her own daughter, shocking urmi beyond belief, while samrat smiles sadistically, as she couldnt be a good wife nor a good mother, in all these years. Urmi is shocked.
ishaan says that she is lying under pressure. urmi asks why is she lying like this. the judge asks her to sit down. urmi says that saroj is lying, and niranjan asks urmi and ishaan not to interrupt, as he gets the first chance to questiosn his witness. ishaan signals urmi to sit down. They comply. niranjan asks saroj about samrat too, and if she didnt stops him from divorce.
Saroj tells that samrat is a nice man, and tried a lot and put in loads to effort to make this relation work, but urmi didnt reltn, and that along with urmi, samrat gave them name, fame and money too. She says that for all this, she is ever thankful to her son-in-law, who’s more than a son to her. urmi eyes samrat shocked and dazed. niranjan points this to the court, that samrat’s own mother-in-law is praising him, and not urmi.
Niranjan again asks saroj to elaborate as to why her husband had a paralysis attack. Saroj says that he couldnt bear the news that his daughter is leaving her husband. Niranjan apologises, and says that this means, that devi is very close to samrat. saroj complies. Niranjan then asks if all are so happy, with samrat, why isnt urmi. Saroj says thatshe never respected samrat nor understood his worht. niranjan asks whats the reason behind this.
Saroj says that urmi was distracted by other things, other than her family, and son. Niranjan asks her to elaborate completely. saroj says that urmi was more focussed on other relationships. Urmi is shocked. Niranjan pretends to be confused, and asks what sort of relation, with strange men, and if she is trying to insinuate that urmi is like this only, a characterless woman. saroj silently complies. niranjan pretends to be disgusted. urmi asks why and what is she doing, and accusing her of something so disgusting, and asks if she doesnt know how important shaurya’s custody is for her.
the judge warns her of contempt, while she is distraught, but silently complies, when ishaan asks her to. tiwari is tensed. Niranjan and samrat are satisfied. Niranjan asks her to tell the court finally who her daughter had an illicit and illegitimate relationship with, if she doesnt have a problem. ishaan objects saying that this is against the professionsal ethics and dignity of women.
Niranjan says that the question is relevant to the case, and needed. the judge overrules the objection. Niranjan again asks the same question, insistently. urmi and ishaan are shocked, as she names that person to be ishaan, with her head hung low. Saroj is mortified with guilt, as her eyes are lowered, and are teary. urmi is distraught and apalled, humiliated as she breaks inconsolably into tears. Ishaan is stunned and unresponsive.
But he says that this is a false witness, by threatening her. Niranjan says that urmi was trying to prove this only, and her own mother testified for his accusation today. samrat pretends tp be upset. ishaan says that this is a lie, and that saroj is under pressure. niranjan says that he can say the same thing about his witnesses, and that no mother can do this as a lie, and today she relieved herself of the stress of carrying this dirty secret.
Niranjan presents saroj, for ishaan’s further interrogations. Samrat is content. ishaan goes to saroj, and says that not as a lawyer, but as a son, she should speak responsibly, keeping in mind, that her evidence shall turn the case. Niranjan says that this is emotional blackmail. ishaan says that this is a fact that saroj considers him as a son, and hence she would have to look at him in the eye and say that whatever she said is the truth.
saroj looks away and says that she has said what she wanted to, and hence they should end it here. niranjan asks ishaan not to upset his witness, and relieves her to go. Saroj steps down, and looks helplessly at urmi, while niranjan continues with his case, as saroj sits by samrat’s side, and hears to niranjan pleading for samrat getting shaurya’s custody.
Ishaan says that his witness is the truth, and that saroj’s mother’s witness is seemingly suspicious, and hence he needs sometime to get to the bottom of this and asks for time. niranjan asks why is this needed, when her own mother has testified. Ishaan says that this is an important descision and hence they shouldnt rush. the judge allows him two more days. niranjan and sarat are disturbed, as the the court is adjourned. urmi sits stunned.
Outside, samrat asks saroj to clear and compose her face, and she begs that now she did what he wanted to. niranjan asks her to stop, and compliments on what she did, and that her performance is geuine, and this shall not stop, till the descision has been done. samrat asks her to clear her eyes, till shaurya comes to him. She takes his leave, and he says that he understands her plight, and asks that she definitely must have enjoyed what she did. She leaves. Niranjan points this as their masterstroke, and that its samrat’s responsibility that they wont get to the bottom of this. samrat assures him that saroj wont open her mouth in front of urmi and ishaan, come what may, as they are under his control. they smile evilly.

She is about to touch him, when urmi refarins his hand, as she hears saroj cough, and turn in her sleep, she hides behind the curtains, and then comes out, when saroj has turned around. She finds saroj’s phone, and then eyes devi again. she takes the phone, and goes out, casting an emotional glance at her parents once again, before closing the door once again.

Meanwhile, samrat starts viewing the video clip, of annu bathing in the bathroom, and smiles evilly as he thinks that this is the trump card, and this shall get him shaurya’s custody and that now urmi would get a lesson for trying to beat him. He guffaws evilly.
The next morning, samrat comes down and radha eyes him lovingly. radha bends down and touches samrat’s feet while he is scared that someone might see them. samrat is shocked to hear the word Husband, and remembers what happened yesterday.
