Dialogues, music and direction
The dialogues are emotional and heart touching which are beautifully delivered by Shaheer and Ankita. The title track and BGM is old and same but revisited in voice of Palak Muchhal, giving all chills of those old good times. Since this project was quite challenging for the makers, but they still made it look pleasing and admirable.
Ankita Lokhande as Archana is still the same and yet again gave her best performance, whereas Shaheer Sheikh took the limelight this time. First of all it was his biggest step in his whole career to recreate that same image as Sushant in role of Manav. But he filled that void again with his amazing, charming and outstanding performance. Well no one could have looked perfect for this role. It was the best choice by the makers to cast Shaheer as Manav. Rest of the cast was also brilliant in their parts.
It’s a beautiful love story which is emotional, doting, piquant, gripping and engrossing. Will make you fall in love with Manav and Archana again after 7 years. This is definitely a heartwarming tribute to “Sushant Singh Rajput”. But viewing to the other side of the show there was nothing new in the story telling which might make you a little doleful.
