Lost in Love 18 October 2022: Pakhi enters Virat’s room with prasad and tells Sai that since she didn’t have anything since morning, she brought prasad for her. Sai asks since when she started caring for her. Pakhi says she needs to in Virat’s absence and seeing lanterns hanging asks if she fixed them. Sai says they were already fixed when she came here. Pakhi sees perfume bottle and asks if Virat gifted it to her. Sai says yes. Pakhi desires to have it. Sai says she wouldn’t give it to anyone, takes it back, and asks why she came here. Pakhi says she couldn’t enter this room in Virat’s presence, so she came in in his absence to meet and welcome her. Sai says she doesn’t need her welcome as its of no meaning, she returned in an empty room. Pakhi asks if is he day dreaming as Virat is not in this room.
Sai says Virat’s memories are present though, their friendship will be together always whatever problems come. Pakhi claps and says Virat talked about friendship and bonding even with her and didn’t follow either, so she shouldn’t talk about Virat and friendship in front of her. Sai says Virat respected their friendship as she is also Virat’s elder brother’s wife. Pakhi says Virat promised that he will not let any other girl in his life, but let Sai in; Sai is great that she fought with Virat for celebrating their wedding anniversary and now is playing friendship drama with him. Sai asks her to be specific. Pakhi says Virat is a man and needs a partner as his wife, but she is blabbering about friendship, so soon a third woman will enter their life. Sai says nothing of that sort will happen. Pakhi says even she was thinking same when Virat married Sai, but Virat broke her delusion. Sai gets serious. Pakhi says she warned her beforehand so that she doesn’t face same betrayal like her. Sai thinks why did Pakhi say this now.
Virat gets DIG’s call who informs him about terrorists planning to barge into minister’s convoy and assassinate him. He assures to protect minister and asks who is the terrorist. DIG says its his old friend Sada. Virat says his old friendship will not deter his loyalty towards his duty. DIG says he should catch Sada alive and try to change his mind, its a tough task for him emotionally and he shouldn’t inform his family about it. Virat says he knows protocol.Sai thinks why Pakhi warned her against Virat. She imagines Aaba emerging her and saying her daughter who used to solve other’s dilemma is herself in a dilemma. Sai says she is unable to understand anything. He says she is married now and should solve her problems herself. He acts as scolding her and reminds her of her 10th birthday when he went on a mission and she was sad. Sai excitedly remembers how he returned at midnight to cheer her up. Aaba explains that Virat was doing same on their wedding anniversary to cheer her up, but she misunderstood him and vented out her anger on him; if someone else would have been in Virat’s place, he would have slapped her, but Virat showed his maturity and kept his calm as he loves her. She asks how will she know what is in his heart.
He asks how will Virat know what is in her heart. She asks what should she do now. She ask him to look at the moon and think. She looks at the moon. Even Virat looks at moon. Sai then unpacks her bag and thinks she wanted him to unpack her bag, but he left her alone. Virat remembers time spent with Sai and misses her looking at their photo. He thinks why she was sad seeing him leaving, he could see pain of separation in her eyes, her shivering hands during aarti revealed that she considers him more than a friend. Even she thinks same. He thinks once returns home, he will set everything right.
Virat set ups camp in the middle of jungle. Inspector Surve asks if its right to do this. Virat says this is jungle’s safest area, they can watch any movement around, it has 3 police stations nearby and they can get a backup if needed. Surve asks why are they camping here. Virat says he wants terrorists to think same and Sada send one of his aide to check. Surve asks if he knows Sada. Virat says Sada is his college friend and its his responsibility to catch him. He notices bonfire nearby and alerting his officers goes to check. Sada wearing a mask points gun at him. Virat dearms him. He picks gun again and warns Virat to go from there or lese. Virat attacks him again and removes his mask. He gets emotional seeing Sada and asks to hug his bestfriend Viru. Sada pushes him away. Virat is about to fall on a stone when Sada holds him and says their ways are different, so he should stop following him. Virat reminds their college days, how they made their first half century together, how he wrote first love letter for Sada’s girlfriend, how his childhood friend Sunny used to get jealous of Sada and used to feel a third person between them, and requests to hug his best friend. Sada hugs him.
Sai misses Virat and calls him, but Virat leaves his mobile in camp. Officers get worried for Virat and go to search him. Virat asks Sada why he didn’t keep in touch with him. Sada says even he didn’t keep in touch and didn’t invite him for marriage. Virat asks if he knows about his marriage. Sada says he saw bhabhi in mall that day, she is very beautiful. Virat says she is. Sada asks if its love marriage. He says neither love nor arranged but situational and asks about him. Sada reveals he had love marriage with one of his comrade Shruti and she is carrying their baby. Virat asks if he is keeping his pregnant wife in jungle, he should surrender for everyone’s betterment. Sada says its not that easy, politicians full dirt in society and they need to suffer, so he is revolting against the system. Virat tries to convince him to surrender and assures him that he will protect him and his family. Sada says their paths are different now. He hears Virat’s officers searching him and feels betrayed by Virat. Virat warns that they will meet again as a police officer and terrorist and not friends and escapes from there.
Virat returns to his camp and thinks a storm is running inside his mind, he needs to speak to Sai to calm it as he discussed all his issues with her after they became friends; he hopes he doesn’t have to arrest his best friend. Sai thinks tomorrow is padva festival and hopes Virat is with him tomorrow to celebrate it. Next morning, Sonali and Ashwini prepare uptan/herbal paste for festival. Bhavani explains ritual and gets emotional remembering her festival days with her husband. Ashwini asks her to explain more. Sonali says they should let their bahus perform this ritual. Sai walks towards living room when Pakhi clashes with her and asks how was her first night with Virat, she means in Virat’s room in his absence. Sai asks why is she so much worried about her, she even came to her room yesterday. Pakhi says its call sympathy. Sai says she should show this sympathy on her husband instead as he returned home after 1 year. Pakhi gets jealous hearing that.
