Neha does not want kids after marriage and Sameer gets upset with this. Sameer tells his problem to Dev that his parents need a heir. Neha asks Dev to convince Sameer to marry her on her terms. Neha tells Dev that she will tie him rakhi this year along the other two sisters, if he succeeds to convince Sameer. Dev tries explaining Sameer.

Dev assures Sameer that Neha will change by his love after marriage. He tries convincing Sameer. Dev promises Sameer that he will give his company’s 50% shares if he marries Neha. Sameer refuses to accept money, as he is marrying to get a legal heir. Dev gets sure that Sameer will keep Neha happy. Sameer agrees to marry Neha on her conditions. Neha gets happy and thanks Dev for his efforts. She promises to tie him Rakhi. Ishwari goes to see her old rented house from where she was kicked out for not being able to pay rent. Dev reaches Ishwari and understands that moment. Later, Dev realizes that his wallet might have fell in Sonakshi’s packet while they were arguing.
Sonakshi checks Dev’s wallet and finds many credit cards. She gets to know his name Devrath Dixit. Her brother tells her about his client Dev. He takes the wallet to return to Dev. Neha gets ready for her engagement. She gets glad to get her mother’s attention. Ishwari prays that Neha gets a good married life. Sameer’s sister Saloni gets friendly with Dev. Sameer’s mother gets a desire to get Dev and Saloni married. She thinks if Dev rejects Saloni, then she will reject Neha for Sameer. Sonakshi’s mother also finds an alliance or her.

Neha gets disturbed and gets into verbal argument with Ishwari. She feels Ishwari just loves Dev and not other children. Ishwari gets shocked by the injustice blame by Neha and faints.
The characters look real to life. There is not much offbeat drama to fill the scenes. Dialogues feel like attempted to become witty, but bring some fun in the show. The tale of modern relationships will surely be liked by the viewers. There are few shows which put light on the practical nature behind some hurdles facing relations. Not all relations are perfect as seen in other shows. This show brings some different concept and can be called a fine trial. Coming to actors, Shaheer Sheikh as Dev is effortless. The role looks tailor made for Shaheer. There has to be more of Erica Fernandes. By far, she is okay in her portrayal. Supriya Pilgaonkar needs no performance evaluation. She is an added wonder in the show cast. Other supporting cast is fairly good and bring a fresh appeal. The show holds charm to get good viewership. The title track looks soothing and slow. The leads need more sparkling chemistry. As of now, their scenes do not raise high interest.
One may watch the love to get some bits of love, romance, maturity, emotions and values. The show brings all the good attributes packed in the lead, presenting the perfect guy Dev. The show brings the heart versus mind decision fights, wherein leads decide to not take a practical decision on their still-on relationship. The devotion of a son towards his mother, and his developing feelings for his girlfriend would divide Dev. The concept is interesting and will relate to many viewers. A good attempt by Sony.
