Viplav : Ok. Krishna’s parents agreed for the marriage. What happened then?
(flashback scene : Krishna is seen driving a car and Dhaani is sit besides him) After having met his parents, he came home to talk to my mother with an excuse of dropping me home.
Dhaani : Your parents told na, that they will come to talk to mah. Then why are you in such a hurry?
Krishna : She is my mother-in-law, I will tell her by myself.
Dhaani : She is not yet, ok?
Krishna : Arey! Don’t be tensed, I have already told them I will talk to her.
When mah came to know about that, she got really angry and upset first.
Dulaari : Dhaani! Didn’t you think at least once that you should have told me about this earlier?
Dhaani : Mah, (holds her ears) I am sorry! But we knew that you would say yes. Because you are my (holds her mother’s chin trying to convince her) lovely mother right ?
Dulaari : Go away, I don’t have anything to talk with you. And don’t get into that misunderstanding that I will accept.
(Suddenly Krishna comes in the room in which they were talking.)
Krishna : Can I say something aunty?
(Dulaari looks somewhere else angry.)
Krishna : Dhaani is just so like you.
(Dulaari looks at him surprised.)
Krishna : Sometimes she also gets stubborn like this.
(His words make Dhaani look at him angry while Dulaari was laughing.)
Krishna : Finally, you have at least smiled.
(He suddenly bends down to touch her feet which surprises Dulaari.)
Dulaari : Hey!
Krishna : Give us your blessings saasu mah, please!
(Dulaari looks at Dhaani who was making faces asking her accept. Seeing her daughter so, she smiles and looking down at Krishna, puts her hand on his head.)
Dulaari : Always be happy.
(scene shows Dhaani narrating again) A week later, it was our engagement day. It was so good to see the house fully decorated. Flowers, guirlands, lights… Our house was looking even more beautiful. (Viplav smiles hearing this) Then it was haldi, next mehendi, and sangeet. The more days fly, the more distance between Krishna and me seemed to decrease. The day when we were supposed to get together was just close to us.
(scene back to the flashback) And finally came that day. That day I was waiting eagerly for days & nights.
(A girl is getting prepared for her marriage, and the camera slowly shows Dhaani’s face, after all the details (earrings, necklaces…). She finally gets ready and smiles at her.)
It was already late in the evening, and it was soon time for the baarat to come at the housedoor. Sitting in front of the mirror, fully ready, I was looking at myself lost into some thoughts that brought a smile on my lips.
(She was looking at herself on the mirror when her mother comes from behind. She puts her hands on Dhaani’s shoulders.)
Dulaari : How beautiful my baby is!
(She then draws a line on her kaajal and applies a dot behind her daughter’s ear, while she looks down shy and smiling. She then looks up at her again.)
Dulaari : I pray no one’s bad eyes fall on you, especially mine.
Dhaani : (holds her hand with a sad face) Mah, don’t say like that!
(Dulaari smiles and kisses on her head while Dhaani was holding her hands. Dulaari then gets off her and looks again at her daughter through the mirror.)
Dhaani : If only baba was here today.
(Dulaari’s face gets dull suddenly.)
Dhaani : (a tear falling from her eyes) He would have been so happy to see me like this, wouldn’t he?
(Dulaari sees her daughter’s pain.)
Dhaani : But… it will never happen so. And that only because of me…
Dulaari : Stop it Dhaani. Don’t you dare say such things, especially today.
Dhaani : However you might convince me, that’s the truth. You are bearing this all because of me.
Dulaari : Dhaani just be quiet. Don’t force me to slap you on your wedding day (holds Dhaani’s hand in her two hands) You are my life, not a hurdle. You are the only one for me in this life.
(Dhaani takes her mother’s hand towards her and kisses on it. Dulaari then wipes Dhaani’s tears.)
Priya (Dhaani’s close friend) : Arey! You guys are here.
(She comes behind Dhaani and looks at her friend through the mirror.)
Priya : Arey wah! You are looking so beautiful today.
(Dhaani gets shy and looks down.)
Priya : It’s aunty’s miracle, that you look good at least today.
(Dhaani looks up at her her friend again through the mirror while Dulaari giggles.)
Dhaani : (pats Priya softly) Shut up, sheitaan.
Priya : Alright sorry, I was just kidding. But really, you are even more beautiful than usually. Just one thing got missed.
(Dhaani looks at her confused. Priya looks at the folded veil on the table and holds it in her arms, while Dhaani and Dulaari look at it smiling. She then unfolds it and puts it on Dhaani’s head.)
Priya : (puts her hands on Dhaani’s shoulders) Now perfect!
(She then hugs Dhaani from the back while Dulaari looks at them smiling.)
(walking the 100 steps in the room) One hour has gone. However Krishna wasnt seen anywhere around. Each instant (looks at the wall clock) flying, my tension was increasing.
Dulaari : Dhaani, come and sit betha, they will come soon.
However, her words couldn’t give me peace at all.
Priya : (sit next to Dulaari) Dhaani relax. They might be on their way girl.
Dhaani : They were supposed to come long ago. Still not a news about them. (stops walking) I pray God nothing happens to him and his relatives.
(Suddenly her phone starts ringing and all turn their head towards that direction.)
Hearing my phone ringing made my heartbeat just run faster. My mind just wanted it not to be any bad news.
(Priya holds Dhaani’s phone looking at the screen and then looks at Dhaani.)
Priya : Krishna calling.
(Dhaani sits near her tensed. Seeing her state, Priya reassures her.)
Priya : Don’t worry yaar, I will talk. Don’t get tensed.
(She answers the call why Dhaani was looking towards her with lots of curiosity.)
Priya : (looks straight) Hello! … Krishna, this is Priya. … (looks at Dhaani) She.. she is just here. (looks straight) But where are you guys? … Ok alright.
(She hands over the phone to Dhaani.)
Priya : He wants to talk to you.
(Dhaani takes the phone and holds it near her ear.)
Dhaani : Hello, Krishna. (he doesnt say anything) Krishna. Where are you?
(Krishna is shown in a room, in casual dresses, tears wetting his cheeks and quite tensed.)
Dhaani : Krishna, can you hear me ? Why are you saying anything ?
Krishna : (wipes his tears) Dhaani!
Dhaani : Krishna? You… You are ok na? When are you coming ?
(Krishna closes his eyes crying.)
Dulaari : (to Dhaani) What is Krishna saying ? Is everything fine ?
Dhaani : (to her mother) I don’t know mah. (on the phone) Tell me na. Do you know how long I have been waiting for you? If you say something then at least I will get peace right?.
Krishna : Dhaani…
Precap – Dhaani bursts out into tears talking to Krishna while Priya and Dulaari look at her tensed. She suddenly lets the phone fall down.
