Kahani November 15th, 2013 Tak…….
Following the newspaper report, the family is extremely angry with Mohan while all his colleagues are partying to celebrate his success at his home. Amidst this, Mohan is ill at ease and finds something amiss in the whole situation. Being a very close neighbor Meena is disgusted and pained to watch all the jubilation taking place. Unable to control his agitation, Mr VeeraRaghavan reaches Mohan’s office and flings his chappal at Mohan. The news reaches Mohan’s househelp, cook cum buddy Guru and his mother. Meanwhile Dhanya also faces lot of humiliation at school. All these developments make Mohan very remorseful and he is very pained when Dhanya breaks her ties with him. Addu in turn expresses his anger by tearing away Mohan’s motorcycle seat and puncturing the tyres. Despite her hatred for Mohan, she takes him to apologize to Mohan and pays for his damage.
Soon after, there is Shivratri festival celebration in the neighbourhood and as fate would have it, Mohan ends up saving Meena from the stampede that takes place. Mohan’s frantic attempt to mend the relationship with Dhanya fails. In one last desperate attempt, he risks going into Mr VeeraRaghavan’s household to meet Dhanya. He reveals his true self and convinces her to meet him. This is witnessed by the widowed Aunt ( Sister of Mr Veeraraghavan). Bothe these incidents set her thinking that Mohan is not really a bad person and this makes her develop a soft corner for him. This is further reiterated when Dhanya confides in the aunt (china patti) that Mohan was the one who traced her when she went missing and not her cousin brother Raju who took undue credit. Meena for her part tries to maintain the minimum courtesy that demands to be extended whenever she happens to meet Mohan.
In the mean time, Sanjay gets a new job and his wife Renu is now pressurizing him to spare money for her son Raju’s CA coaching instead of spending it on school fees for Meena’s kids Renu urges Meena to put her children in charitable school. Her taunts and humiliation is on the rise. Further, Renu listening to her friend Sangeeta’s gossip tries to malign Meena’s reputation saying that something is brewing between Meena and Mohan. Observing all this, Mr Veeraraghavan gives permission to Meena to find a job as he feels that Meena’s self respect is now at stake. She attempts to find job at various places like travel agency, school etc but she is not successful.
After the request from Mohan, Dhanya goes to meet Mohan. There Mohan showing all the evidence collected including her dad’s signed papers explains why he had to believe that her father was behind the scam. Dhanya is very hurt and dosen’t believe him. She points out that the day her Dad had signed was her birthday and that her Dad always takes holiday and that year also he had taken leave and spent time with them.
There is a fancy dress competition in Dhanya’s school. Once again due to unforeseen delay, Meena is forced to take help from Mohan to drop them at school as well as fixing the costume. Mohan hands over his phone to Meena and he forgets to collect. Mohan loves Dhanya and encourages her very much. Dhanya’s portrayal as butterfly and her sensitive message to save the environment to protect the butterflies helps her to get the Ist prize. She credits her mother for writing the poem and coming out with the concept. Noticing Meena’s creativity, the chief guest of the day (editor from a newspaper) offers a position for her in the new magazine “Manasi” which they are about to launch. Meena is very thrilled at the prospect of a new job offer and agrees to join the next day.
In the mean time, Mohan is fuming as he is unable to trace his mobile phone and on recollecting that he had left it with Mrs Meena, he is further agitated with her lack of tact to inform him. He is desperately waiting for her to arrive and soon after they start fighting. Meena tells him that even though she realizes and appreciates all the help that he has done for them but she would never ever be able to excuse him for the once incident with regard to Amar. As a fall out of this, both of them decide not to cross each other’s path and even if they see each other, they would ignore
Mohan is quite upset after this incident and wonders why every time he tries to help Meena it takes a negative direction.
Meena comes to the office without knowing that it is the same newspaper which reported of Amar’s involvement in the scam. She expresses her inability to the boss Mr Praveen who however convinces her to give it a try. Additionally she also has to face the wrath of the Star Reporter “Mohan Prasad” whose table she has been given inadvertently.
Mohan and Meena’s lives continuously cross paths and coupled with the recent developments bring in a subtle transformation in Mohan. For the first time Mohan sees a world beyond himself and slowly becomes aware of the world of Meena…..
Kunal Karan Kapoor as Mohan conveys the turmoil of fighting between his conscience and the so called truth very convincingly.
Meena played by Akanksha Singh displays the perfect restraint and strength that her character demands..
With the prospect of Mohan and Meena working together, expect more fireworks between Mohan and Meena and get your seat belts fastened as now you are on a flight for a beautiful destination …. with lots of turbulence on the way ofcourse……
