A Suitable Boy episode 5 Review:
Things are slowly getting real for Maan and Lata, and this episode is a testament to that. Honestly, a heartbreaking episode all around.
As days progress, Lata is enamoured by her suitors even more. As Haresh increasingly becomes desperate to win Lata’s affection, Amit also starts making his moves. It doesn’t help that she can’t forget Kabir either. The thoughts become so persistent that she dreams about it as well. However, an ill-fated meeting with Haresh crashes that boat pretty quickly, leaving a bad taste in both of their mouths. Kabir, too, gets a wake-up call.
On the other hand, Maan and his father, Mahesh, travel to Rudhia to the Nawab’s constituency in hopes of winning from there. Although that goes well and results in the improvement of Maan and his father’s relationship, Kapoor Jr gets to know some disturbing news. It so happens that Rasheed is not all there in his head, which is a heartbreaking revelation for all involved.
In addition to this, in A Suitable Boy episode 5, a shocking revelation also creeps in with Firoz, which results in a tragedy that no one probably thought of. It’s the last scene of the episode that absolutely breaks your heart into a million pieces and makes you wonder what the future beholds for everyone. It also doesn’t help to wonder that all this could’ve been avoided had there been an honest dialogue between the parties. There, however, isn’t one and the suffering is, thus, phenomenal.
We also see Ranvir Shorey’s Waris here. He helps the Kapoors settle-in in Rudhia and also helps them in launching their campaign in the village. Randeep Hooda’s Billy Irani also makes a small appearance, and, as I’ve said before, looks dashing as ever.
A Suitable Boy episode 5 takes one of the sharpest turns till now. With only one more episode to go, it’s no wonder that we’re rapidly going towards the end of it all. I am interested to know how the said tragedy works into the show and how it affects Lata’s life. However, I’m guessing it doesn’t bode well.
A sneak peek of the next episode tells us that Maan is in for a rude awakening which will force him to grow up all too quickly. On the other hand, Haresh professes that he knows the truth, whereas Amit comes clean about his feelings, which doesn’t make Kabir happy.
