Our Take:

jana21The show had a good beginning. It looks sweet, homely and gives a nice appeal to watch. Story pace is good till now. As per the first week, the lead actors have really shown good chemistry between them. The characters are defined well. Both positive and negative roles have started clashing to add the drama. Vikram as Atharv is doing his role convincingly. He looks the angry young man of small screen, whereas Shivani as Vividha reminds the sweet and bubbly Bolly heroines. Supporting cast is doing a good job. Shilpa Tulaskar as Sujata and Vineet Kumar as Kailash shine with their powerful performances. The title song is very apt and soothing. Everything fits in the frame well.


jana22A good family entertainment show by Star Plus. To survive with good TRPs at an early slot is quite a tough task. Given a chance, this show can do better. All romantic buffs can watch this show for the lead actors, their chemistry and intense love story.

Our Rating:

3 out of 5

    serial’s story is quite nice but as a character he is so angry but his situations make him so but what u right in the first para that she will marry to his step bro is not good as it is the love story of vividha and atharv bring his father’s reality in front of him but don’t mess with their lives
