22nd August Issue

Its the season of 2's on Dulhann. This past week saw the 2nd-husband track end and the 2nd-wedding track begin for Amar-Divya. And soon the 2nd entry of Bharat into the Singh Mansion. So while there's plenty in store for the upcoming week, let's look at some of the gems that came our way this past week.


Raksha bandhan, Sindoora-scheming, and unpacking - all in one mighty stylish scene. Bharat's bubble-gum pink silk shirt is a statement in itself. Like it or leave it, the message is clear: real men DO wear pink! The real scene stealer, however, was Divya who appears to be absorbing Bharat's confidence along with his colour sense. For those looking for change from the 'Vidya' look - this vivacious pink polka-dot print saree definitely screams Divya. Definitely a step in the right direction. Next step - tie the saree a little differently. Last step - open the hair.

The return of Divya. It was a breath of fresh air - Divya with hair open, wearing a night suit, flirting in English. This scene was a brief reminder of the Amar-Divya viewers fell in love with. Classic A-D.

How can one possibly exclude mention of the proposal? This black-tie dinner was the prelude for the upcoming week's festivities. Amar, sporting a black "gentleman" self-striped suit, white-on-white shirt/tie, and huge dimples looked completely at home in his attire and the setting; while Divya was warm and lovely in her blue-green and gold sequinned saree, making this one of the most charming scenes between the duo thus far. Happy, charming and uniquely Amar-Divya.


What is going on with Chachi? Massage therapy resulting in age reduction rather than weight loss. Very strange and pointless. However, if they're not careful, Chachi may just end up look younger than Divya!


Amar is wearing chocolate brown (jacket) in a scene this week. While this shade of brown is completely trendy and looks very flattering on Sharad, neither Amar nor Sagar ever wore it. What a pleasant surprise. Let's hope we see a repeat of both the colour and the casual style again soon.


The last few weeks have seen Divya wearing light-fabric printed sarees with applique borders. This style is a definite departure from Vidya's solid and shaded sarees, setting Divya slightly apart. So far, there have been a lot of subtle polka-dots and booti motifs, but it will be interesting to see how far Divya experiments with the prints. Here are a few examples of this trend in action.

  • Development of Aditi's style and character (finally)
  • Changes in Bharat's style because of his entry in the Singh Mansion
  • Divya's confidence and style boost as she starts winning some battles
  • Lots of wedding and party wear!
