BOTY Critic Review

Garima Singh
Rated 70/100
This serial started with a good storyline of RK & Madhubala's hate cum love story. But later, almost similar story is repeated in its second season which makes it quite boring. Also, there is a lot of family drama in a filmy way which makes it little interesting too.
