Our Take:

Concept of the story is adapted by the Bollywood movie Chori Chori Chupke Chupke. The leads’ characterization is similar. Characters are defined such that viewers can easily connect to. Parth has responsibilities, Shorvori has hopes, while Teni has dreams. All the leads are positive and hold much influence on each other. The unconventional relations and the growing complexities with the surrogacy twist are very much expected. There are not many surprises in store for the viewers in upcoming track. The changes are seen in dialogues, costumes and interpersonal relationships.

Jasmin’s colorful character of Teni is sweet, but gets too loud at times. Teni’s character holds charm and spice. Jasmin would be getting engrossed in her character with coming episodes. Parth and Shorvori’s made for each other pairing looks adorable. The chemistry between Sidharth and Rashami is amazing. That’s the USP of the show. Their scenes look effortless. Tej Sapru as Parth’s grandfather is convincing. Sets and costumes are unstinted and very much apt as per the story. Story pace in the first week has been decent.


Dil Se Dil Tak is a good family entertainer. Being a show with a well-known talented cast, one can expect normal dose of drama with bits of romance, family tensions, and love triangle twists. This show does not wad you with high octane melodrama. Viewers can hope to see better chemistry and fun moments between the central characters.

    I feel that some part of the concept is taken from the movie chori chori chupke chupke….it’s a nice plot..

    1. That’s what I’m thinking

      1. Me also. But I like Teni she is funny.

  2. its based on the movie Chori Chori Chupke Chupke

  3. Ritika Sawhney

    Completely taken frm the film

  4. Nitee

    All r commenting same, it is based on the movie chori chori chupke chupke and nothing new in it.. Yes I too agree, but I don’t know what’s big deal in it, this show is a complete adaptation of that flim, it was announced by the production team itself when the project was started..

  5. RANdomfANCreationz

    Though I only saw only 2-3 episodes of dil se dil Tak I will say ya it’s a lot like chori chori chupke chupke but if one observes dil se dil Tak and Chori Chori chupke chupke has some differences, here Parth and Shorvori’s family are angry with them unlike Salman and Rani’s character in that flim. And secondly Teni and Preeti Zinda’s character have diff. Teni is a loud character who have high dreams unlike preeti Zinda who a bar Dancer in that movie. And main concept of this show is surrogacy, well even other serials used this surrogacy concept but in track wise her the main concept is surrogacy itself.

    And ya I liked Jasmin in Tashan-E-Ishq as Twinkle , but I loved Jasmin as Teni more. Her character is damn funny ???? and that accent though ??? . Siddhart Shukla is also doing a good job and happy to see him back in a show finally and though I don’t like Rashmi Desai much she also did her role well .

    And i hope there will be another guy Opposite Teni that will be more interesting (siddhant Gupta is the best choice ? but can be anyone else)

  6. It’s too bad,,,,,if end of this story complete same story in chori chori chopke chopke ,,,this mean teni out,,,,
