Story So Far:

The story is about Anushka and Siddhant. They had always known each other because of the connection between their fathers. They were childhood friends and then fell in love. They had loved each other, but then Anushka decides to leave the country. Anushka went abroad, while Siddhant didn’t wish to follow her, even when he had a chance to be with her. Siddhant makes his profession as a lawyer. Anushka gets educated and shapes her career. She returns to India after many years.

Siddhant gets ready for his jogging session. Anushka is KK Reddy’s daughter, while Siddhant is Prabhakar Sinha’s son. Prabhakar is Reddy’s friend and most trusted employee. Siddhant reads the headlines in newspapers about Reddy’s success and rising wealth. He gets upset that his dad’s name isn’t mentioned anywhere in the article. He knows the amount of hard work his dad has put in. He wants his dad to get some credit. Prabhakar is happy with the way Reddy treats him with love and respect. He doesn’t want any credit from Reddy. He is content with his work and friendship with Reddy.

Siddhant doesn’t agree with Prabhakar. They get into an argument over the importance of name and getting credit when the person is really deserving. Prabhakar doesn’t want to fall in Siddhant’s words. He wants to just be hardworking and loyal towards Reddy. On the other hand, Reddy is a smart, influential and rich businessman with a good foresight. He loves his family a lot. He gets a good surprise when Anushka comes home. Reddy values relationships knowing its worth on long term basis. He always takes a stand for Prabhakar and insults those who speak against Prabhakar.

Siddhant recollects how Anushka gave up their relationship and went ahead for shaping her future. Siddhant and Anushka couldn’t forget each other till now. Their ego stops them from bonding again. After returning home, Anushka tries to avoid Siddhant, but fate brings them together. Siddhant wants to know more about her and stays curious to meet her. He deals with his emotional conflict, knowing Anushka was the one who didn’t keep their love. Siddhant has interesting theories about life. His ways to success and fame are different than that of his dad. Anushka and Siddhant’s paths cross again.

Our Take:

The story presents various colours of unspoken love, romance and struggles. The modern era brings the freshness in Siddhant and Anushka’s unexpressed love story. Leads performances are decent as per the start. Their chemistry could get better ahead. Manish Choudhary deserves a mention for his natural striking performance. He looks the best in both his roles of a smart business and a doting father. Rest of the supporting cast is also good. The story nicely conveys the shades of first love. Even if the love seems to be out of the heart, it stays in some corner and keeps conflicting with the present. The lovers Siddhant and Anushka yearn for each other. Their romance nuances are presented by the past glimpses.

The show follows the line of Ek Duje Ke Vaaste and Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi, since its similar to the modern day characters and simplistic approach of storyline. The story isn’t complex or crowded. It sticks to the plot and tries to convey the subject in a subtle manner. The lovers are rooted in their love, and yet distanced. The USP of the show is simple, crisp and light scenes. There are no melodramatic or head-aching loud moments. The leads neither find ways to confess their love, nor move on for accepting new relationships. Apart from the story, the locales deserve a mention. The scenes are shot at real locations, unlike the studio sets. From cinematography to the screenplay, the makers try to make it a film experience for the viewers. The story is much relatable with the young generation because of its realism and practicality.

Overall:

The show makes a decent start with its simple story. Characters are much relatable. The story would win viewers’ interest with time. Its’ another good attempt from Sony.

  3. Okay! I was waiting for this article since long time to express my views!
    I LOVE the serial! And the teenage story is too good and the younger actors also have a good chemistry.
    This serial reminds me totally of EDKV and I know it is the same production house.
    But I have an issue. As far as I know Reddy is a caste and their mother tongue is Telugu. And in telugu we call dad as “Nanna” and not Appa. And the father’s character has too much of accent, but it’s acceptable. But that “Appa” thing didn’t go well with me.

    1. Fenil

      i think it’s Tamil not telegu !!

      1. SANTHOSH

        sss bhai… actually Reddy caste toh jyaada majority Andhra Pradesh aur telangana mein hai..kuch Reddy families bhi kerala aur tamilnaadu mein bhi hai… yeh serial toh 100000% tamilnaadu se hi related hai….. not telugu states..?

  4. Medha

  5. Hey SANTHOSH! Can you just tell me what do you say for “sit down” in tamil.

    1. Fenil

      Tamil- Utkar

    2. SANTHOSH

      utkaru

      1. So, in an episode where siddhant comes to KK’s house to give his father’s medicines, then KK says “kurcho” which means “sit” in telugu.

  6. Shiksha
