There is humor, drama, emotions and even love between Shaan and his robot Rajni. The show has funny liners by Shaan’s family. A good efforts in the dialogues gives fresh appeal to the show. It’s a smart take on an old concept.
Karan V Grover superbly portrays Shaan, while Riddhima Pandit as robot Rajni is amazingly stunning in her portrayal. She expresses the robot expressions well with an innocent look and charm. Supporting cast as Kant family is okay in their roles. Their characters are sweet, natural and funny to make it an adorable and fun loving family. It is a light hearted show, which will take everyone on a stress free and relief ride.
The show brings a funny take on family relations after they get a robot bahu. Shaan hides the fact about Rajni being a robot. This situation leads to a humorous series of events in Kant Family. The show brings some inspiring and dramatic moments as well. It presents a modern saas-bahu concept from a man’s view. It is a good family entertainer and would go well with people interested in robotics. Watch it for a good laugh and technical stuff.
