Bringing the authenticity of the local flavour and rustic cultural elements to the storyline, the makers have maintained the narrative very simple. The attention to detail, the expressions of the actors, the costume, set, all these prove that the job is done well. The dialogues are extremely well-written. Sumbul Touqeer Khan nails it with her performance. The supporting characters too fit their roles.
After watching the show, we see that the concept is tried and tested. It is simply a remake of Star Plus’ show Mohi, which was also a remake of the Bengali show Ishti Kutum. The old concept is picked up and presented with new faces and new characters.
Overall, the charming love triangle is average except the cheerful character of Imlie. We at IWMBuzz.com rate this effort with a 2.5 out of 5 stars.
