Our Take:

The story is not at all new. The audience can relate this story to multiple hindi movies. Apart from the story, the next lacking point here is too-much predictable characterization. Some twist and turn elements could have been added to bring some freshness in the plot. There is nothing surprising about the dialogues as well. The show struggles in keeping up the intriguing drama. Coming to the actors, the leads Vivaan and Eisha are well-known, and proved their acting prowess in their earlier shows. This show also proves their natural acting skills. Supporting cast are also a good bunch of actors. The audience can expect the show to bring a striking chemistry between the leads. Only the madness and romance filling up in the love story can raise the interest.

Overall:

A fair attempt by Colors, but still just a remake. The leads are the USP of the show. Their chemistry can be expected to become amazing in the coming episodes.

Our Rating:

3 out of 5

    I too feel that given time this show will force its way into the top 5….
    The lead actors are audience favorites and we know we can expect some sizzling upcoming scenes…
    I too rate this as a 3 out of 5 (for now)….and know the show will eventually excel… so I know my rating will increase once the show settles into it’s concept….
    However, nothing is wrong with change….and I believe that a few ‘new’ twists should be introduced into the storyline in order to avoid the monotony of being an old hindi remake 🙏💗💘

  2. 1/5. First of all, the story is very much predictable and does not make much sense.

    Second, Eisha Singh is not doing well here. The only real star is Vivian, who might not be able to pull much.

    This show may go off air soon. Any idea what the trp is?

  3. The heroine’s age is inappropriate for this kind of story. She is just 18, still a child! Please, let her finish her studies first, before relationships.

    1. She will turn 22 by DEC 24th. Stop saying incorrect things
      Eisha singh played ishq subhan Allah so so well. I’m a huge fan of hers

  4. For the first time I ‘ve come accross Eisha Singh. I ve never heard of her before. She is made of beauty and innocence. She acts really well. I love her a lot. Her character and Ranveer’s character is a very good match. Both characters are charming together. İt is a good choice. They awaken suspense.
