Kasautii Zindagii Kay ended almost a decade ago. The love story of Anurag and Prerna had a tragic end, as Anurag was grieved the death of his love and a memorial was erected on the name of the two lovers who were united in death.
Even to date, fans have not stopped discussing the magical chemistry of Anurag and Prerna. The melodious title track, Chahat Ke Safar Mein, has become a rage all over again and viewers can’t stop humming it since the trailer of the reboot released. Many of them discovered, to their surprise, that they still remember the lyrics.
Three episodes down, and we must say that Ekta Kapoor manages to keep us hooked to the show again!
There is no doubt that Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes complement each other and it is easy to accept them as Anurag and Prerna. While the first episode had us going gaga about the duo’s interactions, there were moments that tickled our funny bones.
For instance, when the fire took place, Anurag’s mother starts crying and making a huge hue and cry about the costly chunar that took 11 months to make and was especially for the Goddess. Of course, doting son Anurag decides to get the chunar back by risking his life. He takes out a jeep and drives it inside the pandal. Soon, he runs on air (literally!) and jumps in the middle of flames! The scene was reminiscent of Tiger Shroff’s Flying Jatt. Anurag certainly looked like a hero who possesses superpowers (dramatic eye roll). He is finally successful in getting the precious (more than Anurag’s life itself) chunar.
In the meanwhile, a pillar galls in the direction of the Durga idol, and the brave Prerna stops it without caring about her safety. Anurag notices this and helps her push the pillar away. So heroic! Of course, how else would the romance unfold?
Another highlight is the blind faith of people that if it is windy, rainy, or stormy something good or bad is going to happen. Clearly, the Gods communicate with the pandits articulately, as they are always aware what the climate change indicates.
These are just a few instances. Ekta once again proves that she is the undefeated queen of melodrama. Don’t TV watchers deserve intelligent content?
