Vishesh is seen expressing his free thoughts in front of his friends. He wants the girls to live with liberty, without feeling the bounds of society or relationships. Vishesh supports the women and asks them to fight for their rights and self-respect. Kanchan finds some troubles in Sheetal’s alliance, which upsets her Tau ji. The groom’s family gets mistaken that Kanchan is going to wed in the royal family, while the truth remains that Kanchan just works at the palace. Kanchan gets to talk to Vishesh on call unknowingly and gets a solution to save Sheetal’s alliance. His words make her realize that a lie told for someone’s good is equal to a hundred truths. Kanchan lies to the groom’s family that she is going to marry Vishesh.
The groom’s family accepts Sheetal only to get related to the Raj Gharana via Kanchan’s connection. Kanchan feels guilty to lie. She wants to lessen the burden on Tau ji. Kanchan’s dad feels proud of her, since she makes sacrifices for the family. Vishesh learns about his friend Jaggi, who has failed to win his love Sheetal. Jaggi commits suicide. Vishesh reaches Jaggi in time and finds him hanging to the ceiling fan. Vishesh miraculously saves his life. He gets to know Jaggi’s love story. He guides Jaggi towards a good future with Sheetal. He promises Jaggi that he will stop Sheetal’s marriage and make his friend win his love. Jaggi gets hopeful with Vishesh’s word.
Vishesh takes a disguise of a cook and enters Sheetal’s house. He wants Sheetal’s family to accept Jaggi by ruling out the caste issues. Vishesh doesn’t reveal to anyone that he is a Prince. He stays down to earth and sweet while making his way to fulfill his motives. Vishesh and Kanchan meet for the first time. He instantly likes her. He feels to know more about her. Jaggi meets Sheetal and assures her that they will get married by the elder’s consent. Sheetal stays upset over the marriage proceedings. Vishesh and Jaggi try their best to stop the marriage. Vishesh asks Jaggi to impress Sheetal’s dad. Kanchan learns Sheetal and Jaggi’s love story. She tells Sheetal that she will not support her when its about family respect put on stake.
Vishesh learns Kanchan’s lie that she is going to marry the son of Mathura’s royal family. Vishesh doesn’t understand the reason for Kanchan’s lie. He assumes her to be a big liar. With time, Vishesh learns the reason and also realizes that Kanchan is a clean-hearted girl who can do anything for her family. He falls in love with her. Kanchan worries when some situations trigger her fears. She reacts odd in front of the guests. Vishesh decides to find out what’s troubling Kanchan. Vishesh tries to befriend Kanchan.
The show has an inspiring concept. The story shows the female lead fighting with her inner fears and dilemmas, to break the boundaries created for women. Kanchan and Vishesh have a similar perception when it comes to end the blind beliefs and old customs. The women’s free spirit will be presented by the bold and well-crafted character of Kanchan. Vishesh’s progressive character would be describing an ideal man of today’s times, who will be determined to help Kanchan fight with the bitter past. The show brings a different take on the societal issues. The story is narrated in a simple manner. It serves clean entertainment, suitable for all the age groups.
The decent approach to support the brave concept of women empowerment is an added plus. There has been no over dramatic scenes. The pace goes on smooth. The dialogues are well-written. Vishesh’s mindset and his wonderful thoughts are something good to watch. The locales of Mathura are just seen in the initial episodes. Though the sets are pleasing, natural appeal is quite low. The supporting characters are okay. The cast does a wonderful job. The story will connect with the audience. It seems much predictable in the beginning. As the show proceeds, the main subject will be presented in a subtle way. The leads Rahul Sharma and Shivani Tomar make their suitability for their roles evident. The chemistry between the leads is nice.
The show presents the old concept in a new light. It attempts to inspire the audience by the interesting journey of Kanchan and Vishesh. The characters will surely be loved for their wonderful ideologies. Its a good and promising attempt by And Tv.
