Pratiksha Lonkar is perfect as Yashoda. She is a pleasure to watch. Shrenu Parikh as Rajnibala is easy on the eye, gentle and complete bahu material

Krish is a successful businessman who sells cheese in the Swiss market. However, when it comes to matters of the heart, he is confused and somewhat casual. The only reason he gets engaged to his business-partner-cum-childhood-friend is because she loves him. He is in deep trouble when he falls in love with a simple girl (with Hindi film songs playing in the background and flowers showering on him...wonder why our makers can't get real sometimes) whom he meets at a wedding. This encapsulates the story of Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka or at least that's how the story has begun.

It is difficult to miss the promos that played incessantly about how everyone in the Vaishnav parivaar is marrying off their sanskaari, loving, soft spoken bahu who is also the son's choice and the ma-in-law's favourite. While the makers (producers J.D. Majethia and Aatish Kapadia) have kept their cards close, the show which began on a shaky note (loud scenes, louder characters with Gujarati accents) is slowly finding its niche. Of course, Krish's grandmother or baa, as she is called, continues to grate on your nerves with her so-called sense of humour. Her 'am still young at heart' number and forthright manner of speaking is not necessarily entertaining or endearing. For instance, she's donated one of her kidneys to her granddaughter, so she calls her ehsaanfaramosh asking rent for 'using' her kidney. Now maybe that's the makers' idea of 'awww, so cute' but it isn't, because it's a serious matter.

We have a bone to pick about the characterisations too. For instance, the daughter of the house is shown to be her husband's boss (bravo) and also the reason for their not-so-happy marriage (typical). Or why is Paulomi, the girl who loves Krish, bold enough to propose marriage to him but becomes docile, willing to go the extra mile to be the 'ideal' bahu? Maybe it's got something to do with her parents' broken marriage.

Having said that, we love Krish's parents! While the father comes across as a sensible, practical man, the mother walks the tightrope of love and discipline. She's traditional, yet progressive. She gets hurt and upset, yet she is forgiving and accepting. She moves with the times and though she loves her son, she does not turn a blind eye when he errs. Pratiksha Lonkar is perfect as Yashoda, Krish's mother. She is a pleasure to watch. Shrenu Parikh as Rajnibala, the girl Yashoda actually wanted as a bride for Krish with whom he is gradually falling in love with, is a near-fit. She is easy on the eye, gentle and complete bahu material. Benaf Dadachanji as the child-woman Paulomi, lends innocence and dignity to the character. She very ably complements Krish's 'immature' personality. Last but not the least, Gaurav Khanna as Krish is handsome, has a fetching smile but is so inspired by Abhishek Bachchan, that we seriously miss his own style! Wish he lets go of those familiar mannerisms and showcases his own talent.

All in all, a show that we hope would get better with time only because Kapadia is the man behind the script.

Verdict: Watchable.
