Story has mix of drama, emotions and suspense. Romance would be seen sometime later. It has all aspects of a good daily soap. Revenge drama runs parallel with the hospital twists. By the first week, the show keeps up the interest, throughout the episodes. The show’s name could have been more catchy. There are some loopholes in the storyline. That gets skipped by the natural performances. Mohan Kapur and Shilpa Shirodkar are brilliant enough to make the viewers love their characters. Mohan carries off the role of Dr. Anand with ease.
Shilpa also does complete justice to her role of Jaya. Varun Kapoor as Veer is the bright element of the show. when the scenes get boring, Varun’s entry promises freshness and fun time. Swarda has to become more convincing. Her natural appeal loses out in few scenes. Based on number of characters introduced, viewers can expect many tracks running together. The show’s one hour slot is fairly needed to put light on characterizations. The mystery element grabs good interest. Emotional scenes might be better if toned down a bit. The medical background in the concept is an advantage for the revenge-family drama.
A good attempt by Colors. The show is worth watching. Light moments of college fun add humor. Balanced dose of drama, suspense and emotions. Performances are the highlights. If its able to sustain its interesting story without any diversions, the show might be next big medical drama of small screen.
