Story:

The story is set in Udaipur. The scene introduces Preeti, as a mother of two, Tarun and Juhi. She prepares for the wedding ceremony of Tarun and Rati. Rati is a career-oriented woman and luckily gets Tarun’s total support. Tarun knows Rati’s not-so-good intentions. He loves her a lot and can do anything for her happiness. They both have big dreams and are equally selfish when it comes to reap benefits from close relations.

Preeti loves Tarun so much that she had lived a life like a mute person for 20 years, just to pray for Tarun’s voice to return to normalcy. Tarun had met with an accident in childhood, where he lost his voice. Preeti makes a prayer for him and vows to seal her lips until the day he wears his Sehra. Just Juhi is aware of Preeti’s oath. Preeti wants to surprise Tarun by speaking up and reading her hearty poetry to him on his wedding. Juhi’s mum-in-law Kusum understands Rati’s intentions and wants to alert Preeti. Kusum gets to learn that KT has come in the wedding function. Rati plans to make Preeti her all-time maid by taking her home. Rati knows that talking sweetly to Preeti will do the needful. Preeti finds Tarun in danger. She breaks her silence to save him. Tarun learns about her fake speech-impairment. He calls her sacrifice a big drama. Preeti gets too hurt when he shows no respect for his mother. She just wants him to be kind and respectful towards her.

Preeti works hard to make his marriage a grand one, with limited guests due to the pandemic situation. Preeti makes sure to keep everyone’s heart and wish. She also involves her in-laws in the function by using her smartness. Preeti gets praised by all, except Tarun, who blames her for ruining his childhood by her fake muteness. Preeti fails to explain her son. Rati steals the credit for Preeti’s wedding planning work. Preeti doesn’t mind, since she wants both Tarun and Rati to prosper in their career. Preeti meets Rati’s guest KT, a film celebrity. Preeti doesn’t know him since he is from the Rajasthan film industry. He thinks she is his big fan, who is just speechless to see him. Preeti and KT start bonding. KT appears jolly all the time and advises her to smile.

Our Take:

The content is fresh and relatable. Strong characterizations of Preeti and KT makes the script a powerful one. KT holds a past baggage, while Preeti focuses on her future. The audience will relate to Preeti’s character, since she is a perfect mother, who keeps patience at times even when she knows her child is wrong and also shows her strength to fight for her esteem to teach a lesson to her child. Preeti’s tolerance becomes her strength. The story around Preeti and KT working together for Shaadi Mubarak brings a sweet romantic tale. Their chemistry is something worth watching in every scene they share. The show offers a fresh pairing of the leads. Rajshree Thakur and Manav Gohil look fresh and appealing, best suited for their roles. They both are great actors, and their first time pairing works a lot for the show.

Preeti’s struggle to create her own identity takes the story ahead. Saas-Bahu drama between Preeti and Rati can be expected, but least. The concept touches heart by the emotional scenes. Preeti’s daughter does her duty by taking a stand for her when Preeti’s son sides away. Coming to cast, Rajeshwari Sachdev as Kusum is an eye-catcher since the very first episode. She adds the fun elements with her brilliant performance. Rajshree is much natural as Preeti. Manav looks much charming and stylish as KT. Preeti and KT’s slow and steady romance is the USP of the show. Beautiful sets, costumes and visuals add up as bonus.

Overall:

A good and clean family drama. Rajshree has chosen the right script to return to the small screen. Manav fills the surprising element in every episode. Give it a watch for Rajshree and Manav.
