Star Plus new show Humko Tumse Ho Gaya Hai Pyar Kya Kare started airing on 6th June 2016 at 8.30 pm slot. The show has replaced the show Silsila Pyaar Ka. This brings a love story of a rich and under confident guy with the smart and over confident middle class girl. The characters here are given a different touch, so that their love story would deal with their complex family backgrounds and linked emotions later. The female lead is a new actress Ishani Sharma. She is playing Anokhi’s character, opposite Qubool Hai’s star Varun Toorkey who is playing Tushar’s role.
Tushar belongs to a rich family, whereas Anokhi would belong to a middle class family. Anokhi will become a part of Tushar’s life by joining his business as accountant. She gets confused over Tushar and Kunal’s identities. She assumes the manager Kunal as Tushar Malik, and Tushar as a manager. But gradually, she falls in true love with Tushar, irrespective of his background.
She is not a simple and shy girl, but a very fun loving, smart and opportunity seeker girl. She is good at heart, funny, dreamy and has much great expectations from her life. She knows to lie sometimes and manipulate things in her favor, but would not harm anyone for her motives. Anokhi has her own mantras in her life. She follows her life’s set of fundamentals. She is really different and named appropriately Anokhi. She is very ambitious and knows to make her own path towards her dreams. She belongs to a middle class family, and hopes to get rich some day. Anokhi is very practical and full of life.
He is a simple, shy, decent and under confident guy. He belongs to a rich family, but is never allowed to live freely and take decisions independently. He suppresses her feelings all the time. Tushar feels bad when none supports him and he gets scoldings by his Dadu. Tushar is hardworking, sensible and earthy guy. He is completely opposite of Anokhi. He mostly stays depressed and bears the burdens of the high expectations his family has from him. Tushar Malik lives very simplistic life and very obedient. His family is his priority. He is not clever or scheming guy. He is just into his own world.

She finds him handsome and imagines dancing with Kunal, getting engaged to him with a big diamond ring. She realizes it was her dream, and just then Tushar introduces himself as Tushar Malik, which shocks Anokhi.
Yet another practical love story and family drama concept from Star Plus. None of the good shows survived at this 8.30 PM slot on the channel. This show looks different and promising enough to survive at this prime slot. The USP of the show remains the lead characterizations of super-bubbly Anokhi and calm and composed Tushar. Ishani Sharma and Varun Toorkey shine in their portrayals. Ankur Verma as Kunal fits the concept well and justifies his role. The supporting cast in undoubtedly convincing, having biggies like Sudhir Pandey.
The families are depicted well. The middle class and rich family backgrounds come up with the pressures, expectation, need and all the emotions related to the financial status. The leads chemistry is good and has spark. The concept of two lovers from different class of society is not something new. But here, the characters of the leads make the difference. The show brings realistic approach, practicality, sweetness and innocence in the leads’ characters. This will drive the show ahead and maintain its charm. The confusion of Tushar and Kunal adds some fun and cute moments between Anokhi and Tushar.
It is promising love story with dramatic family tracks. It gives a realistic view of both the families, rich and poor. The concept will raise a question, of valuing money or relations. Anokhi would be choosing her love and follow her heart, than valuing money. The chemistry between Ishani and Varun would be seen more in upcoming episodes. It’s a good family entertainer.
