Shivin takes Gauri along and meets Ahaan.
Ahaan holds Shivin responsible for leaking the sensitive matter to the media and ends friendship with him. Ahaan’s father tries to create differences between Ahaan and Shivin. Ahaan blames Shivin of speaking about his mother’s affair to the media and blames himself for befriending a traitor like him. Shivin realizes that his mother revealed about Ahaan’s mother to the media. Shivin blames his mother to become cause of his friendship’s end. Gauri finds out that her mother has mortgaged some of her jewelry. She goes with her mother to get documents checked. Gauri’s mother mortgaged the house for Akshay’s sake. Akshay is Gauri’s brother, who is in need of money.
Gauri reaches Akshay’s house and finds a goon Pedro there. Pedro tells her that Akshay used to buy drugs for him. Gauri gets shocked knowing this. She then finds out from the university staff that Akshay is removed from college because of drug pedaling crime. Akshay meets Gauri and tells her that money is the only thing important for him now.

Shivin helps Gauri and rescues Gauri from the goons. Gauri refuses to go with Shivin. She starts asking him questions to know him. Later, she agrees to go with him.

Shivin gets angry on Gauri and is hurt by her words. He makes her understand that it was not his mistake. He asks her not to say anything without knowing the entire truth. Gauri realizes her mistake and apologizes to him. She tells Shivin that she can’t trust anyone after her brother betrayed her. Shivin’s parents decide to get him married soon. Gauri spots her brother giving huge amount to someone.
Karan Wahi and Nikhil Chadda/Reyansh Chadda are the good things in the show. Rhea Sharma as Gauri still needs to climb many steps to make her portrayal convincing. Supporting cast is just okay. The concept is too weak and very much known. There is nothing new to offer. Being a sequel to a supernatural rebirth drama, this one falls short of anything worth mentioning.
Adhuri Kahani Humari was an average runner. With new characters and actors in its sequel/post leap track, the story looks out of form. Chemistry between Karan and Nikhil in their Dosti scenes is very much appreciable. Few characters just bounce with no proper scenes. You can just find bitter friendship, fights between best buddies, close to nil romance, goons running around to get leads together… Show lacks mostly by its concept.
A weak attempt by And TV. Karan Wahi’s fans can watch the show expecting the romance between Shivin and Gauri. The show does not live up to expectations. Just a passé remake.
