Ishqbaaaz – Pyaar Ki Ek Dhinchak Kahaani First Impression

While Ishqbaaaz fans are in mourning shedding buckets over the end of their favorite and hottest Jodi Shivaay and Anika (Surbhi Chandna), the makers have rolled out the story of their only son, Shivaansh Singh Oberoi (Nakuul Mehta). We are introduced to this hot filmstar who has women swooning over him left right and center. His team has a junior Khanna as well, who is his trusty bodyguard. So, the makers have carried forward some of the old faves albeit with the new generation. On the other hand, we have newbie Manjiri Pupala as Inspector Aditi Deshmukh. She is as badass and righteous as they come. Though she has a dhamakedaar entry, Manjiri seems bland as we don’t see any expressions whatsoever.
Given the outrage around the end of #ShiVika, we see a flashback of the glorious couple. We are taken to the scene where Shivaay saves Anika with the help of Rudra (Leenesh Mattoo) and Bhavya (Mansi Srivastava). Actress Navnindra Behl who plays the grand old matriarch of the Oberoi clan, is a part of the show. Seeing her, we are instantly reminded of the cute moments between the Oberoi brothers and her. Nakuul’s new look is quite good. The character has the flamboyance of Shivaay and flair of Anika, which is a good thing. Ishqbaaaz is known for its dialogues that make sure smile and we see some of that in the new season.

Ishqbaaaz is a brand and fans are not yet over the bonding of the three brothers and the sublime chemistry of Shivaay and Anika. The makers have an uphill task ahead. Let us see what surprises are in store…
