In a very emotional and heart-wrenching episode Rajan and Deepa Shahi’s ‘Anupamaa’ showed the trauma a domestic violence victim goes through.
Malvika (Aneri Vajani) was in an abusive marriage and her husband used to hit her. She never told Anuj (Gaurav Khanna) about it, until he saw it on his own. When Malvika saw something similar happening in the building, she remembered her past trauma and was inconsolable.
Anuj tells the entire story to Anupamaa (Rupali Ganguly) and also blames himself for Malvika’s condition. Anupamaa tries to comfort both of them. In the meantime, Vanraj (Sudhanshu Pandey) too comes to their house and hears about Malvika’s past. He asks Anupamaa to be with Malvika and takes Anuj outside. He offers him some water and tells him that things will change for good and that if he ever needs him, he will always be there.
In the meantime, Anupamaa tells Mavika to vent out her anger and say all those things that she couldn’t say earlier. She gives her a pillow and asks her to think of it as the person who hit her and give it back to him.
Meanwhile, at the Shah house, Paritosh (Aashish Mehrotra) informs everyone that Anupamaa, Anuj and Malvika are fine, but Malvika has some issues and he is staying with them. Kavya (Madalsa Sharma) creates a huge fuss about it and asks the family why Vanraj had to stay with them. Pakhi (Muskaan Bamne) is also in tears because she couldn’t wish her parents for New Year. Paritosh, Kinjal (Nidhi Shah) and Samar (Paras Kalnawat) try to cheer her up.
In the upcoming episodes we will see that Anupamaa asks Anuj and Vanraj if women are like a punching bag. Vanraj tells her that it will continue till men change themselves.
The next day, Anupamaa wakes up Malvika and asks her to come with her. To know what happens next, keep watching ‘Anupamaa’. Keep reading ItsEZone.com for more updates on your favorite shows.
