The story is very close to reality. Every parent of a teenager child will relate with this show. Parents can even get to know what all other parents do to raise their children properly. The show deals with all the troubles parents face, their concern and love for their children. Parvarish Season 1 was also amazing with the story. Same goes with Season 2. Story pace is good. The actors are very convincing. They are properly cast and give best to the roles. Gautami Kapoor, Vinay Jain, Sangita Ghosh and Sandeep Baswana are the highlights of the show. They have nice natural feel which makes the show more watchable. The concept is old, but still adorable to watch daily. The USP is connectivity with audience well. Sangita Ghosh and Sandeep Baswana show a great chemistry with their natural Punjabi accent. The younger cast is okay and will be more seen in upcoming episodes. The story adds more sense and gets very likable by presenting both parents and children’s views on same matter.
Parvarish Season 2 made a good start. It has much things to watch for teenagers and parents. Young children can take lessons too and value their parents’ efforts. Parents can learn lessons on treating their children by sensible approach. It is very watchable. A story which connects with common people. Good decision by Sony to bring Parvarish sequel. It is a family entertainer worth watching. The concept is the hero of this show.
