Our Take:

The characters are written with much detailing. The characters speak certain truth about real society. They look relatable. It brings practicality to some extent. Insight of mind battles and human choices is seen. Some scenes go too dramatic to accept. Ranvir’s generosity gets overboard. The scenes defining the richness of Raichands don’t surprise at all. Grand sets and costumes have become common. Story execution is on a good tempo. Few Dialogues are meaningful and more look trying to hit harder. Visuals and locales are fresh.

Coming to performances, Nikita Dutta outshines both the male leads. She delivers just the needed portrayals. Vatsal Seth is quite impressive. Vatsal and Nikita’s chemistry is one of the highlights. Kabir’s role doesn’t look experimental for him. Zayed Khan puts efforts to settle in Ranvir’s character. He has more to show up in coming weeks. He looks more restrained. The show still makes for a good watch. It fulfills all the content and drama conditions for a romantic thriller. Intensity in the plot should be maintained. Putting aside few exceptions like over dramatic dialogues, exaggerating scenes and pushing performances, the show deserves a watch for its intriguing factor.


Haasil is classy and visually appealing. It looks grand with the stellar cast. Real drama will begin when a romantic triangle forms. The show looks much promising.

Our Rating:

4 out of 5
