Actual youth and their passion will be seen. The best things with romance, action and family drama are packed in this show.
Actors Randeep Rai and Ashi Singh are natural in their portrayals. Supporting cast is perfect for their roles. Kiran Kumar makes a good comeback as Sameer’s Nanu. The bonding between children and grandparent is shown nicely. The essence of joint family, petty kitchen fights, children’s comparison and limitation duties are seen.

A simple and clean family entertainer show. Can be given a try and enjoyed in leisure. It surely reminds the 1990’s times. Viewers will easily relate with the leads and other characters. A good and different attempt by Sony.
