A Suitable Boy Episode 6 Review:
We are at the last episode and what a wonderful journey it has been. I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of it. However, I am happy about it, because they really did do a wonderful job with all the stories.
So, in A Suitable Boy episode 6, we see Maan in a very pathetic state. After the tragedy in the last episode, he decides to do the right thing which sends a ripple effect down the line. First of all, his father loses the trust of the people in Rudhia, considering how much the villagers look up to the Nawab. Next, his imprisonment proves to be a huge shock to someone close, which results in another tragedy. Elsewhere, in the village, a character very close to my heart reaches a tragic end.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom. Things look up with Firoz getting better, and him and his father stand up for their friends. The decision seriously brings the two friends closer together, and makes everyone else heave a sigh of relief. It’s a bittersweet moment, because you realise that the tragedy has changed Maan. He’s no longer the passionate boy from the first episode. He has probably been forced to grow up.
On the other hand, we also move forward with Lata’s story. At the start of the epsiode, she’s still confused about whom to marry – with three suitors trying to win her love. Although all three of them seem great to her, she cannot come up with a decision. That, however, changes when Haresh tells her that he knows her true feelings, and Amit proposes to her. She also gets to know about Kabir’s Calcutta travel. It all culminates to her discussion with her pompous brother Arun, when she realises whom she truly loves.
A Suitable Boy episode 6 ends with how the series started – another big wedding! This time around though, it’s Lata, who looks beautiful and happy on her wedding day. It’s clear that she has really taken to her new husband, and you can see the happiness on her face.
This series probably ended in the best way possible. Sure, some people would’ve liked if Lata married someone else, but I understand why she didn’t. And I am also quite pleased with Waris’s character development, although it would’ve been nice if they’d done something with it. However, with 6 episodes, what else can you do? I liked Maan’s character arc as well, the way he grew up from a boy to a man is pretty great. And lastly, Tanya Maniktala is such a great revelation. She’s a great actress, and I really couldn’t look away from how utterly beautiful she is.
