Our perfect place 4 April 2020: Govardhan talks to sameer in front of niranjan and rahul, as to how he could have done something so callous and heinous and isnt repentful of it too. he asks how could he not love her, when he was being physically intimate, and how can he be so detached. sameer tries to explain his dilemma and his actual state of mind.
he asks sameer that he can feel all that he wants to, but hecant shirk away from the responsibility of his child. sameer responds thats why he is here but expresses how puja isnt talking to him at all. he decides to call her up. Govardhan then calls up puja, and asks about her health and asks then calls her home. she complies.
In the kitchen, ila discusses with rita, about the concept of arranged marriages, and the outrageous concept of living in. rita says that just because there werent divorces earlier, doesnt mean couples were happy. ila professes that this is true, but still they believed in maintaining relationships and not breaking them off. she discusses with her, the curious case of sameer, wherein things didnt develop out of love, merely fun. ila wonders whats puja going through. rita says that its a hard time for both of them. they say that they shall only pray for things to get better.
Rita comes and finds niranjan tensed. she asks whats the matter. he says that the estimate he gave to his feiend, and the estimate he got from his contractor are varying financially and he is finding it difficult to bridge the gap. she asks if he gave the estimate to the friend, before talking to the contractor. he says that there was a problem, with the old contractor who gave the estimate as he wasnt trustworthy and the new one’s exceeds the budget he presented to his friend. she thinks that if his friend thinks that he faltered at the first step, that wont be right. she starts surfing through the estimate while he paces around nervously. she points out that the cheap contractor gave less cost of material and labour, and wanted 20 days, but the other contractor gave 30 days. he asks whats the differenec. she says that if they hire direct labour, they can solve this problem. he wonders where to get direct labour from. she gives an idea, as to how one of her friends from the entertainment industry, can provide labour. she asks him to hand the work to her, so that she can fulfill his work. she says that she would just need an additional managerial hand. he asks who. she points out that its Rahul.
In his room, rahul paces around nervously, clutching his stomach, when ila comes and finds that he is in pain. she says that she shall go for the doctor, and he says that it shall be okay as he has taken meds. she asks how did he take it when he doesnt know what caused it. he sits down resignedly. she understands that its the liver, gone worse due to alcohol addiction. he takes her casually, while she asks him to be careful and leave this awful habit. he tries to cheer her up. rita comes and gets to know of his stomach ache and rita understands that its due to liver. they both sweetly reprimand him, while he amusedly smirks. rita says that she too shall drink with him from tonight. ila is shocked. hearing their taunts, he gives in and says that he shall try. he asks about the file in her hand. she says that she can come later. rita then discusses niranjan’s contract with him.
Meanwhile, Sameer discusses with govardhan that he doesnt know much about puja’s father, but knows he is shor tempered. govardhan informs him of his don status. sameer says that he isnt related to her father. govardhan points out that marriage is between families. they decide to wait and watch. Meanwhile, on the phone, Ila talks to gayatri, and narrates everything going on in the house. she also asks her to come home as they have called puja. she complies.
Later, Sameer watches as a car comes in, and puja steps out of it, and they both eye each other tensedly. she starts progressing towards him. he stops her, as she tries to get past him. they eye each other emotionally. she tries to go past but he stops her. she jerks past. all sit down to discuss the matter. Puja talks about her problems and issues with sameer as to how he ran away and slept at the hotel, when she wanted commitment and love, then how could she trap him like this. he is highly insensitive as he speaks as to how she doesnt know yet what society calls a woman bearing a child out of wedlock. ila slaps him tight and asks him to apologise, as her son cant talk to a woman like this. he resigendly complies. she apologises on his behalf to puja. puja asks her not to, as what sameer said, was the reason why she refused to marry him, as she wants a husband who can respect and love her, and not a person who married her out of helplessness. she says that they all saw what he just said. Govardhan says that whatever is going on, makes him understand that children’s practicality stops them from thinking mature, and that leads them into doing what they wish.
gayatri complies and asks her to understand that its a mutual wrong done. puja complies. they extend their support. govardhan says that its immaterial what sameer does or thinks or says, and that he might have denied commitment, but when he heard about the child, he came back, and sat here all night. they try and profess to her as to how he trusts his family to convince her. ila talks to her too, saying that she wants a daughter in her. puja smiles. sameer waits anxiously. he approaches and apologises to her, as tears stream down their cheeks. he says that irrespective of whether she marries him or not, he shall always have the responsibility of her child. ila asks her decision. she says that she needs to talk to her father to discuss further details of the marriage. all are overjoyed, as they eye each other romantically.
The priest is caled and govardhan, ila and rita sit down and ask him to give a good date for marriage. he reads through puja and sameer’s kundali, and says that its all fine, but there’s not a good date for marriage yet. they are all tensed. ila professes that she needs them to get married soon. the priest gives the date for next Puranmaasi. they comply, and then the priest takes his leave. govardhan asks ila what the priest meant. she says that they need to follow circumstances more than good dates.
Sameer talks to rahul on the balcony, who asks him not to think much. sameer says that his boss cant believe he lost his golden oppurtunity. rahul asks him to explain whats he thinking. sameer says that he feels he never thought it through, and that if he so wished, he could have married a little later too, but maybe puja would have refused later. rahul says that govardhan’s assumption about his hesitation was right. sameer is however having a different opinion as to how attached he had gotten at the mention os his child. rahul explains that its always a matter of decisions and he may have to take difficult ones, now or later, but he needs to do so, thinking about himself and not other overriding factors.
In his room, niranjan sits with rita and discusses how she managed to fill in a plan of 15daysfor the work, and in a much lesser budget, as the other contractors were fooling him. niranjan is amazed at the way she handled it, while she says that she had promised she would. they eye each other romantically. ila comes and asks whats going on. niranjan proudly explains. ila asks rita to come to the kitchen, after congratulating both of them. In the kitchen, rita explains niranjan’s business. ila is happy that everything is okay between them. rita is tensed. ila asks if she said anything wrong. rita says that it isnt that easy. rita presents an analogy to explain the situation that she feels it was better not knowing. she says that the full truh should only be known, when you are ready to pay the price. she says that what matters is to be happy. ila is amazed at her maturity and hopes that everyone is blessed with a heart like her. gayatri comes and joins the banter, and tells ila that parimal came too. they are happy.
Parimal comes to rahul’s room and comments on the room size. Rahul retorts back, and parimal gets enraged. rahul asks what would work. parimal asks why plead him to come then. rahul says that the problem is the parents not the brothers. parimal says thats because the brother stays at the enemy’s house. rahul says that sameer doesnt stay here, and that his marriage talks are going on. parimal says that gayatri told him about it. rahul says that he should have been here, as govardhan wanted. parimal asks if he would agree. rahul asks him to insult him all he wants, but its true, that they might have differences, but in times of need, they all are one. parimal says that this isnt a time of need. rahul asks if this is why he didnt come to the parents’ anniversary. parimal complies. rahul says that he forgets that he had to come, whatever maybe the cause, and that he still wants ila to beg him. parimal says that it isnt so, as he has come always.
Rahul says that he always makes people plead, and still keeps it unsure whether he would come or not. parimal gets enraged and walks out. he goes to govardhan’s room, and stands silently. he sees parimal, and then discusses how marriage is the best option and asks his opinion. parimal says that when he has already decided then why ask. govardhan says that he might not be staying here, but he is the elder brother, and has a say. parimal asks what if he says no. govardhan asks why does he have to fight all the time. another verbal scuffle ensues, due to parimal’s immaturity, who continues to hold a grudge. they conti nue arguing, while parimal says that their differences shall never resolve. he says that they shall only when his love supercedes his ego and anger. they eye each other tensedly.
Later, the entire family comes out to receive the Don who is puja’s father, as he comes heavily armed and with bodyguards. all eye each other tensedly. puja makes her father meet sameer and his family. govardhan extends his hand to greet but he complies after much deliberation. they all sit down, after puja makes her father’s guards stay outside. her father starts asking questions about sameer and his work tensedly. sameer says that he is a fashion photographer, and explains his job profile. he asks if he does only insinuating the underlying belly of the fashion industry. parimal advocates for him, and govardhan introduces him, as a bank manager. her father is unconvinced about such a unique career. he asks about his earning. sameer says that due to freelancing, it fluctuates. he asks if he even earns. puaj says that its sufficient for her. her father says that its immaterial whether he earns or not, as everything he has is hers, and if she wants to support him, its okay. govardhan says that wont be an issue. her father asks if he has any criminal record. she says that the important thing is that they love each other, and should get married, and they have already decided a date. he gets enraged and asks how dare they, as he hasnt complied to the relation yet.
He says that till he doesnt say yes, his daughter shall not get married. all are tensed. she says that she loves sameer. he says that she shall grow to love the person she marries, and asks her to stay shut. govardhan asks him not to be angry at her like that, since its unnecessary. he says that he wouldnt have to ask him before scolding her, and asks him to talk when required. all are tensed. sameer says that he cant talk to his father like that. he retorts who would stop him, he himself or his brothers. everyone gets tensed. ila and govardhan are shocked, as all brothers stand united, to defend their father. parimal says that he is a guest and should behave like one, and give respect to command it from them too. her father eyes them tensedly. govardhan asks him to sit down. Her father bursts out and lashes at them asking how dare they talk to him like this, and asks if they know about him. his bodyguards come with their sten guns directed at them only. all are shocked and aghast. his daughter asks him not to do so, as this is wrong, since this is the house of respectable people. he asks if he would have to listen anything. she complies saying that he is the girl’s father. he storms out, saying that he wouldnt want to be with these people. she says that she has already joined them as family. he asks her to choose then between her love and her father. all are shocked. she stands up and says that its he who has to decide, as she is pregnant. he turns around angrily and shocked.
Puja’s father is aghast to hear this. govardhan tries to calm him down and make him realise. she stands apalled. Puja tells her father that she knows she has hurt him badly, but this is the situation and whats happened, she cant change and now she shall do what he tells her, and wont marry sameer if he so wishes, and would abort the child too. all are apalled to hear this. sameer tries to talk, but govardhan shuts him up. he tells her father that the children have made a mistake, but its in their hands now, to either forgive or punish them, or invite the new c hild in this world with joy. they all smile. her father says that her happiness lies in sameer, and his lies in hers. he then apologises to govardhan about it, but he asks to let bygones bye so, and think ahead. ila suggests marriage and govardhan says that after ten days, a good date is there. her father thinks that its a little too early, as he had lots of dreams for her marriage, but complies. he also suggests an engagement ceremony before that. they all comply. sweets are fed to each other, while sameer and puja smile through tears. govardhan introduces him to all in the family. he also talks about palak’s birthday function, and invirtes him too. he heartily accepts. both the fathers hug each other. niranjan requests jovially not to bring the bodyguards with him, or else the children would be scared. everybody guffaws while he complies not to bring.
