Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai Season 2 takes the story forward and delves further into the complex nature of marriage, love, and relationships. Ananya moves to Qatar to focus on her career, and Rohit has to win back her love and make his new marriage work, while also handling the equation with his ex-wife Poonam and their two daughters.
- The story begins right from where it left off at the end of the previous season. This immediate jump into action will definitely rope you in to the complicated lives of Rohit, Ananya, and Poonam.
- Ronit Roy owns up his scenes, portraying the complexities of the character’s emotions efficiently. Mona Singh, too, is brilliant in her performance as an independent woman who has had to take difficult decisions for her own betterment. Their performances are commendable, and their electrifying chemistry as well as their heated stand-offs become the highlights of the show.
- The characters evolve and develop over time, and they have layers to their personalities. Such in-depth character development is an essential part of a well-written storyline, and the writers deserve applause for this.
- Fortunately, Poonam, played by Gurdeep Kohli (who, by the way does an amazing job as well), is not dwelling in the past, shedding tears over her ex-husband. She even goes on to defend Ananya’s decisions at times, which shows that there is further scope for her development in the show.
- The screenplay is tightly-knit, traversing through the ups and downs of Rohit and Ananya’s relationship, their personal decisions, agreements and disagreements, and the usual problems that come with a marriage like this. It also does not completely leave behind other characters either and sheds light on their lives as well.
- Apurva Agnihotri’s character gains more screen time this season and slowly becomes a point of contention in the story due to his growing closeness with Ananya, which starts to impact Rohit’s marriage with Ananya.
- The twists, turns, and sudden changes in the tone and developments of the story are sure enough to keep the audiences hooked to their screens. However, it is not an ‘all the time serious and somber’ drama, and contains comic elements that take away the tension off the screen every now and then.
- The editing is where it lacks at times. Instead of a smooth transition from one scene to another, it feels rushed as some scenes just abruptly come to an end.
- The background music is another aspect that needs improvement. It has a smooth start (albeit sudden at times) in scenes where required, but finishes hastily. Also, there are points where the music overpowers the scene itself, including the character’s dialogues, reducing the overall impact.
Season 2 takes the story forward with a tightly-knit plot and powerful performances.
- Mona Singh and Apurva Agnihotri have previously shared screen space in the television shows ‘Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin’ and ‘Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi.’
- Mona Singh has also been a part of the The Viral Fever (TVF) web series, Yeh Meri Family.
- Ronit Roy will be seen in the upcoming action adventure film, Shamshera, which stars actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Vaani Kapoor.
