After seeing such a beautiful couple, the words that comes out of my mind is “Haste Haste .. Kat jaein Raaste”
DIALOGUES, MUSIC & DIRECTION
Dialogues are so relatable to the present generation, lots of life learning lessons, dealing with different aspects of life. Direction is outstanding. Very few Indian series have depicted complete journey of any relationship, the Ups and Downs, the falls and the Vctories, the Chaos and the biggest decisions.
Dhruv and Kavya just rocked it. Mithila Palekar, she evolved with the series itself. Her performance got stronger with each episode. Dhruv is phenomenal throughout and gave such consistent performace to watch.
Guys, Being a big fan of Dhruv and Kavya, Cheers to my favourite and most relatable reel life couple to real life of our generation! What are you waiting for.. watch Little things and enjoy little of the things in life. Season 4 and the final one is already out. If You haven’t watched season 1 to season 3 yet, do watch. Hope this piece of writing gave you overall zest of the series. 4 stars and a booze of beer for Little Things!
