Amazing performances by the entire cast. Very strong onscreen presence of Jennifer. Coupled with a strong subject of a complex character falling in obsessed love, the actors keep up their roles in good form. The show leaves a good impression and feeling of wanting more after the episode ends. It has a filmi feel to it. Watching Jennifer after a long time paid off well with this show.
Beyhadh is the right comeback show for Jennifer. Kushal and Aneri are also very much apt for the roles. While Kushal is perfect as the cool guy, Aneri too is very relatable by her character of Saanjh. Kushal’s character of Arjun will have more layers after falling in love with Maya. There will be more to see of Kushal. Aneri is very adorable and her scenes bring light moments of relieve. The leads stars are the USP of the show. The plot has power to engross the viewers and sustains the mystery, thrill and romance. It gets many emotions weaved in a complex tale. Jennifer is the prime highlight of this show. Anyone watching Beyhadh would just praise Jennifer’s acting prowess. She looks stunning in all the frames. Characters are defined clear and got good entry scenes.
A very interesting storyline indeed. Beyhadh really leaves a huge impact. Good looking actors, wonderful concept, and a fresh filmi effect makes the show very much watchable. Beyhadh will not disappoint anyone. A very different show from regular and impractical saas-bahu drama.
