I enjoyed the episode, well not completely, but felt that it was a good
start. Mansi's brother annoyed me, but I loved the friendship between
Mansi and Shivani, such a close knit friendship, one doesn't eat if the
other doesn't etc. And I loved how the mothers treated the friendship. I just loved how the relationship between the two girls was depicted.
But that being said, they've definitely established very clearly the arranged marriage vs. love marriage points of views by both of the female characters. However, I felt it was a bit too much for just the first episode. I do understand that obviously, the show is aiming to tackle this concept, but maybe they didn't have to mention arranged and love marriage every two seconds?
And the precap - I didn't like it. Tensions already? And I feel like the anger/frustration/anguish wasn't really well depicted in the precap by either of the two actresses. But I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what it's really like.
Ultimately though, I would say it was a decent start, has potential to be something good, but yeah it has a little while to go till it gets there
