Our Take:

pyaar17The show has got a good storyline. It holds some suspense behind Ishaan’s character sketch. The secret of his life adds up interest in the household drama. The scenes are good to watch as lavish homes and well shot frames capture the eyeballs. Iqbal Khan and Mona Singh are the USP of the show. Their chemistry is really amazing with a natural feel to their scenes. Mona is very earthy in the role and looks effortless. Iqbal Khan looks fresh in the role. He has much to explore. His character has many shades. The supporting cast is appropriate and well convincing. The story looks less fictional. It succeeds in drawing attention and making person watch out the next episode out of curiosity. The show has good pace with non dragging, apt and nicely sketched scenes.


pyaar18The show airs for one hour on weekdays. It makes one have enough of the drama with many parallel tracks. The good thing holding much interest is the leads. Ishaan and Preet’s sweet nothings look endearing. This show follows the lines of Bade Acche Lagte Hai from the same channel Sony. This one fits good for the family entertaining slot. It is watchable and appreciable too. It has all the drama, suspense and love content dealt with ease and cleanliness.
