Where to look: sea5

Ekta Kapoor created Pavitra Rishta about 12 years ago. He featured Ankita Lokhande as Archana and Sushant Singh Rajput as Manav. The television show narrated the love story of two hapless lovers. Sushant and Ankita as Manav and Archana impressed the audience, and their chemistry is still etched in the hearts of the audience. And now, Ekta has brought Manav and Archana back. Czarina TV has replaced the entire cast of Pavitra Rishta except for Ankita and Usha Nadkarni. Shaheer Sheikh takes on Sushant’s shoes as Manav. And this time, the platform is not TV but OTT Zee5 platform. So does Pavitra Rishta 2 manage to create a good impression? Check out my review of Shaheer and Ankita’s protagonist Pavitra Rishta: It’s Never Too Late below:

What is it about?

Pavitra Rishta 2 is a retelling of the TV show from the 2009s. It is a journey of Archana and Manav who have an unbreakable bond but are separated by unforeseen circumstances and differences in families. Will Archana and Manav stand the test of time and how does relationship dynamics affect their Pavitra? Rishta forms the crux of the story.

What heat?

Ankita Lokhande effortlessly reprises her role as Archana. She is a fantastic actress and brings her most beloved character to life as if she never stopped being Archana. She still has the same poise and nuance that she had years ago. Shaheer Sheikh does an impressive job as Manav. While people still connect Manav to Sushant, Shaheer manages to immerse himself in the character of Manav, a simpleton garage mechanic. Shaheer emulates every expression on screen in a way that resonates with you. Usha Nadkarni as Aai from Manav steals the show every time she’s on screen. The key cast, which includes Abhidnya Bhave as Archana’s sister-in-law, Manjusha, Randeep Rai as Manav’s brother Sachin, Suchita Bandekar as Archana’s mother and others, make up the perfect supporting cast and help move the story forward. . The background music is good, the revised verse of the main song by Pavitra Rishta is simply amazing and enhances the emotions of Archana and Manav. The show is fast-paced and leaves you on a cliff.

What not

Since the characters are already known, the creators have skipped the depth. But for those who haven’t seen the original PR, one wishes to see more background and nuances of the characters, as the story seems a bit rushed. There are many characters that are connected to the story, but their individuality is not established, at least in the 8 episodes that have been released so far. So you might be left wondering about some and what their part is in the series, but I guess waiting for next season to drop will help.

BL verdict

For those who have seen the original TV show, Pavitra Rishta, this is a refreshing version. The characters are the same, but the story is slightly altered to make it a web program. Each actor has entered the well-established characters effortlessly and immerses you in this new version of Pavitra Rishta. For those who see it for the first time, the series is a good watch, since you are not prejudiced about the characters and the story. Pavitra Rishta: It’s never too late, it manages to pull on your heartstrings even if you’ve seen the original TV show. Except for the loose ends (which I hope will be tied up in the next few episodes / seasons), the series is quite enjoyable and draws on the drama without being over the top. And therefore I give it 3 and a half stars out of 5.
