BOTY Critic Review

Bhavya Bansal
Rated 68/100
Kumkum was the most loved serial of 2002-2009. Along with a beautiful concept, the chemistry between the lead couple was amazing. Kumkum is a full-on family show with a very less of saas-bahu dramas, unlike other serials. Overall, it's nice to watch sometimes in your free time.

More About Kumkum

Kumkum is a beautiful story about a girl who is the perfect daughter-in-law of Wadhwa family. This was the fourth longest-running TV serial of that time. The storyline of this show is too basic yet entertaining. The serial has very interestingly raised the issue of remarriage of a girl. After the demise of Kumkum's husband, Jatin Wadhwa, her in-laws decided to get her married to another man. After so many incidents, Kumkum marries Sumit who is Jatin's younger brother.
