The first episode itself sets everything straight. Ram is a rich and successful businessman whose love for Vedika remains unchanged even though his feelings are not reciprocated by her. She moves on in life and gets married to someone else.
Ram’s friend Adi is his close aide and we get to know who Ram really is through his eyes. In one of the scenes, he describes Ram as a great deal maker with a big heart. But he adds how he has pills for everything, doesn’t sleep, and mostly travels in his waking hours.
Ram is close to his family and a kid at heart, who loves good food and rain.
Cut to another scene, a beautiful contrast is brought about by Priya’s character. She is a teacher who hates rain and the idea of love. She feels the thrill attached to both are good for marketing gimmicks. For holding such views, she is called a frustrated 32-year-old spinster by her students.
On the surface, Ram displays everything Priya dislikes about rich and fancy people. This is shown through their funny telephonic conversation with each other and in the last scene when he offers more money to the auto driver in which Priya is seated already.
Nakuul’s world is all posh and Priya’s is minimal, and the setting helps in making the characters more relatable. The swift pace of the show, the contrast between the two characters, and their brief interaction in the first episode keep you intrigued. Some moments bring a smile to your face.
Nakuul Mehta steps into the shoes of Ram Kapoor beautifully. He does justice to his part. Disha Parmar takes the cake with her simplicity and genuinity. It’s hard not to be reminded of Sakshi Tanwar who was seen as Priya in the first season.
While the first season was a huge success, going by the first episode, things seem likely to head the same way for this one.
