Our Take:

kasam31The story brings reincarnation, sacrifice, love and destiny. The concept is old and seen many times on tv. The actors are well cast, but nothing remarkable to mention out to anyone there. The leads chemistry would be seen in upcoming episodes. As of now, the connectivity fell flat. The supporting cast has well known faces, who do their portrayals well. Ssharad Malhotra and Kratika Sengar emote well. The child actors did the part well. The promos hyped about the extraordinary love story. Having known the story and predicting the track, there remains nothing sort of mystery or twist in the show. Still it is a family entertainer. A complete full on drama take on reincarnation with a modern take. With Ssharad’s heavy dialogues and attitude to rock the screen, the concept needs more drama to get that filmi entertainment feel. Repetitive story line and sometimes too loud performances dull the show.

Overall:

kasam32Colors’ attempt on old concept can be watched for the lead actors. It is the tale of crossed star lovers and strong connection between the souls. Concept wise it does not offer anything out of the box. It fell short of expectations and turns boring at time.

Our Rating:

2.5 out of 5
