Would have been 2 episodes short if all the so called sex scenes were cut.
13 March 2021 | by jonn-enSee all my reviews

First things first, I don't understand why Indian shows even try to show sex scenes if there's nothing to add to the story, frankly no one wants to see fully clothed actors moaning for a few minutes. They could have just cut the scene when it begins & saved us watching a few extra episodes.

Overall not a bad show, the two stories of Lily & Ayesha are bearable to an extent. The other 3 stories are just lame and clichéd, the kids story was unnecessary & did not add much to the whole narrative. It felt as if director wanted to address problems faced by women of all ages/class but in the end it just felt like every woman only has one problem, men!!

Would have been good if the story was a bit layered with every protagonist getting a different treatment. Also the voice over could have been avoided, felt unnecessary.

Acting by Amruta Subash was the best of the lot, and will stay with you. Rest of the cast is forgettable.

An average show at best.
