Thankfully, the show is not totally predictable. It presents some insight of media world and manipulations done at some levels. Keith playing Madhav is very much into the character. Keith proves his acting prowess with this role. Keith and Sanjeeda’s chemistry is a wonder factor. The background score and title song are good. USP of the show remains the intense characterizations of the leads. Story line is not something out of the box, still lovable. Dialogues and performances make the show different.
The show offers clean entertainment. It has dose of romance, drama, fun and mystery. It is dramatic like a film. One would not regret watching the show. Sanjeeda’s stunning on screen presence and her chemistry with Keith will definitely win fan-ship.
