Story So Far:

The story is about Aaji and Azuba. Anjali and Shraddha have the big responsibilities of their grandparents. The simple life of the sisters is seen. They love each other a lot. They aren’t able to fulfill their dreams. They give their priority to their family. They are much rooted. Anjali has a dream to open a fashion boutique. She gets away from her dreams. She feels inferior seeing the rich and trendy designers. Azuba is a retired commander. An accident changed his life. The family doesn’t want him to go and celebrate republic day. Azuba wants Anjali to get married. She gets irritated with the thought that she will be leaving her family. She doesn’t want to make new relations that cuts off her old relations.

She tells Shraddha that she can’t balance her life after marriage. She feels its better to avoid love and marriage. She feels suffocated in the limiting city. She wants to achieve much in life and live free in some big city, taking her family along. She wants to get successful just to make the family proud. Shraddha supports Anjali. She tells Anjali that their dreams will get accomplished because of their grandparents. Anjali gets into an argument with Azuba. She goes on the terrace to smoke. Shraddha stops her. Anjali burns her designs. She vents her anger. She feels bounded by the responsibilities.

She takes him home to meet Anjali. Shlok confesses love to Anjali. She questions him if he could leave his own life’s priorities and take care of her responsibilities. Shlok likes her dutiful side. Shlok’s mother Rekha loves her sons a lot. She is ready to accept their choices, only on a condition that her Bahus won’t carry the responsibilities of their Maayka. She wants Anjali to leave her Maayka forever.

Our Take:

The show brings a good concept, morally strong and righteous. Every child and grandchild must be dutiful towards elders, be it parents or grandparents. The story brings a joint family in picture, with a twist. Its just the grandparents with the granddaughters making a short and sweet family, filled with love and respect. The four of them make their happy family. Aaji and Azuba nourish Anjali and Shraddha’s lives with their values and teachings. The story also holds scope because of the love lives of the girls. Anjali and Shlok’s love story begins to get hurdles because of Rekha. Shraddha and Dhruv’s love story will be bringing light elements in the family drama.

The show isn’t a Saas-bahu drama. But, there is a Saas-bahu angle with Rekha opposing Anjali. Still, the story keeps you glued by its sheer simplicity. Coming from Rajshri Productions, the show does well in the character detailing and screenplay. Actors casting is brilliant. Sheen shines as Anjali. Shraddha brings the fresh appeal in the show, along with Abhishek and Ankit. Seema, Mohan and Shilpa are the highlights of the show. Like the title, the story is also sweet and unique. Viewers can hope that the plot keeps going on the right track.

Overall:

A perfect watch for the family. Clean, decent, relatable story with realistic characters, woven with love.

Our Rating:

4.5 out of 5
