And the wait for the countless Jennifer Winget, Harshad Chopra and Sehban Azim fans is over, with Colors having released the first full fledged promo of Bepannaah. Ever since the cast was finalised by the makers, fans have been trying their best to get their hands on any information available.
Well, last year itself, individual promos focussing on the back stories of Zoya (Jennifer Winget) and Aditya (Harshad Chopra) were released and they created the much required buzz. And now that the full promo is ready, here's what we thought of it.
In a sequence of events continuing from where the previous two promos left, Aditya and Zoya receive calls and reach the local police stations only to find their respective better halves dead.
While both Zoya and Aditya are beside themselves with grief and are reminiscing their happy moments, first Aditya and then Zoya discover that their spouses were having an affair with each other, when the cloth covering their dead bodies blows away from the wind and they see them holding hands.
While Aditya loses his temper and walks out of the Police station, Zoya completely breaks down and also loses her mind. And in their state of despair, Zoya and Aditya cross paths to which we are sure will be an epic 'bepannah' love story.
What we liked:
While the concept of their spouse dying and then the other person falling in love is something that we've borne witness to already, the fresh angle that the makers have added here is how the other partners discover after their better halves' (Namita Dubey and Sehban Azim) deaths that they were having an affair.
And as complex as this situation can get, it would be interesting to see how the makers plan to execute Aditya and Zoya's complicated love story.
What we did not like:
What may not work for the show is this promo has revealed it all. The entire core plotline is out and frankly we feel that the audience could have been sufficed with a little less of information.
And in continuation to the above point, now that the audience knows all about the show, the entire pressure now rests on the chemistry between Jennifer Winget and Harshad Chopra (which we are confident enough that they will deliver).
Well with many hits and a few misses, Bepannaah still remains one of Colors' much awaited shows. Also, the audience eagerly awaits actors Jennifer Winget and Harshad Chopra to team up and give them yet another iconic pairing.
