Our Take:

dehleez07The show has a lot of potential. Having a good run this first week, it has many things to unfold with interesting weaves in coming weeks. The first impression sets the viewers’ liking for this court room fiction plus romantic love story. The musical title of the show Jiya Re adds up more to the amazing chemistry between Harshad Arora and Tridha Choudhury. Harshad is brilliant as Adarsh, while Tridha brought the right charm needed in Swadheenta’s role. The supporting cast has got well known names already in the first week.

dehleez17Amit Behl, Meghna Malik and Manish Wadhwa along others play their part very well. There has been not much dragging till now. Being a court room drama, there could be high expectations from viewers. The story pace is quite good right now. Few fun elements by Asad’s character and stress relieve college scenes are good. Dialogues and one liners at proper place help in creating chemistry between the leads. The show has enough logic and well sketched characters. There is much more to see of Harshad and Tridha.



Enough charm brought in by the leads. One can simply watch the show for the leads, if story seems less interesting. Concept is apparent and going on at good pace. Dehleez is a good entertaining show with clear-cut logic.

  3. Ireena

    Actually this showis good.but mmz was rated 4.5/5…. I think so far it is highest rated.but SP stopped airing it only because of TRP.they never care 4 storyline,performance etc. Only TRP.even both slots r same.
    So it’ll be always in danger zone if it has low trp…???

    • riya(die hard fan of rivanya)

  4. I like this concept!!! Something to new and different here ….Deehleez is entertaining till now…the leads are impressive and dialogues are perfect..not to forget the beautiful theme song which brings the perfect charms to Swadharh’s romantic scenes…..Suhasini is perfect in her character and I think this show will give us something beyond just regular saas-bahu drama!!!


    Aray what is this? unfair……….. it needs 5/5……………. its awesome…….. fabulous….. fantastic…… amazing…………. we dont have words to portray it…… hatts of to the team…………….

    • Ranaji(die hard fan of ishveer)

      Ww we should be happy becoz tu have 4/5 becoz only show got 4.5/5 is RAM kapoor show I don’t know name and not Bade acche lagte hain. Except that no show have got that rating

  6. Why they r potraying swadhinta as a weak woman.when i saw the promos i felt its different story with a strong female lead.but whenever i see this series swadhinta is crying,confused or seeking a help.sry if i am wrong coz i havnt watched the full episodes.but if she is a lawyer,she should be more tough(this is wht i feel).

  7. nb

    So far the character of Suhasini has been very good. How a working mother keeps balance between husband and her grown up children is very well depicted. However the character of Swadheenta has been not well thought of or the director is not able to show properly. She is shown as weak in some scenes and strong at some places. Also she may not fall in love with any guy just bcoz he helped him or what but her behaviour towards him shld not be rude as if he is a rowdy. She may not accept the coffee offer but she can not be shy or can be friendly to persons she knows already.That to when she knows that he is an IAS and friend of her friend’s groom. However all artists are doing well till now. Directors to improve. No need to rush the love or romance. If it comes slowly the only it is good.

  8. christi

  9. Palav
