#REVIEW: 'Rishta Likhenge...' COMBATS 'Pehredaar's...' CONTROVERSIAL nature with an average story!

Apart from some good moments, the storyline is pretty unimpressive.

Cast: Tejasswi Prakash Wayangankar, Rohit Suchanti

Story So Far:

The viewers are given a small flashback of what happened in the first installment of the show Pehredaar Piya Ki... how Ratan's father Maan Singh (now Khalid Siddiqui) recognizes the threat looming over his son and hands over Ratan's responsibility to Diya (Tejasswi Prakash Wayangankar).

Diya remembers her dream of how she wanted to live a free life like a butterfly, when an actual butterfly enters Diya's room and leaves an SD Card. The card contains a video of one of those family members who has been conspiring against Ratan (Rohit Suchanti) and he also threatens Ratan's life, post which Diya decides to answer back.

Diya goes to the family and creates a fake situation where she makes everybody believe that Ratan has returned to India.

As she had planned, Priya (Gauri Singh) who believes that her son Yash (Siddharth Shivpuri) is the rightful owner of Mann Singh's property, plots to get Ratan killed, but Diya and Yash foil the attempts.

At the end of the first episode, Ratan is introduced as staying in London and his entry sequence also depicts how Ratan, despite living in London for nine years, still hasn't forgotten his Rajput roots.

Ratan leaves for India to surprise his family, but Diya finds out about the same and rushes to receive Ratan herself. Ratan and his friends land in India and upon seeing Diya, they plan to prank her by introducing themselves by the name of Ratan Maan Singh. But Diya foils their plans and all of them head home.

Meanwhile at the haveli, Kakisa gets intuitions and starts preparations for Ratan's arrival. Priya sends her goons who somehow manage to capture Ratan, but Diya arrives in the nick of time on a camel and saves Ratan.

She then calls Yash, who comes to pick both Diya and Ratan up. Yash and Ratan reminisce their childhood days, when Ratan sees the Hanuman temple that his father used to bring him to and asks to stop there and pray for his protectors. Seeing Diya's valour, Ratan recognises her as his Mr. India and thanks her. The trio reaches the palace where Kakisa is ready with the aarti thaali. She does Ratan's aarti and then while warding off the evil, she throws the chillies used in the ritual at Diya.

What's Good:

The show yet again does not lack when it comes to its scale and grandeur. The entire royal set up has been aptly recreated.

Performances of the entire cast are applaudable. While we felt that Rohit was lacking in the promo of the show, after seeing the first few episodes we feel like he will soon cover up.

The show has done away with their original concept and this version showcases realistic content and situations which are not cringe worthy unlike the first season.

What's not Good:

There are quite a few unbelievable instances like how Diya runs around and is seen doing cartwheels wearing a heavy lehenga and also how a butterfly drops an SD Card in Diya's bedroom and the pigeon dropping a chit. These scenes aren't cringe worthy, but absurd and hilarious.


There isn't much good or much bad to say about the show. There is also no Wow' moment in the show so far. It is a typical daily soap with has the regular elements like friendship, romance, suspense and thrill.

It would be nice if people keep their prejudice away and give a fair review that too only after watching it properly...what the writer talked about butterfly dropping pendrive is nothing but crap...Diya saw the butterfly which made her nostalgic,then after coming back to reality she noticed the pendrive..that's all..other than that butterfly has nothing to do with pendrive..plz get ur facts Clear...and it would have been better if the writer here highlighted the positives(which are definitely more compared to draw backs) as much as he/she tried to highlight the negatives...
Plz try to be fair whenever you write a review for a show next tym..
I have to say the casting director here done a great Job..Tejasswi Prakash Wayangankar and Rohit Suchanti are nailing their role to perfection...

This is not a fair review. The many positives are simply ignored while the negatives are too highlighted
Agreed there is scope for improvement in story but it's definitely way better than the way you make it sound for sure

is this even called a review? they didnt even mention main theme or Tejasswi Prakash Wayangankar performance.. in which orrdinary show we get to see such a strong female lead who handles busines, sowrds, guns and security.. crtitiscm is most welcome but this review cannot be considered as criticism too. this is so far the worst review i have ever seen.. like seriously ..
this butterfly thing it was not shown butterfly dropping it but it was on tiop of memory card and thus diya noticed it..
and 360 flip, tejasswi herself did it.. criticse fairly not without knowing facts.. looks like someone is paying you for this.. pathetic

@stylelover read my comment again. I was in no way commenting on the reviewer or responding to her review. I Know the reviewer was giving her opinion and I can see that by the way she is highlighting both the positives and negatives of the show. I was responding to some other people, who are known to hate the actress from her previous show and here to bash and not to give genuine reviews for improvement.

Even if I were commenting on the review, which I wasn't, reviews are for discussion and critique. I have my own opinion and can choose to disagree and point out the flaws in the review. You agree with the reviewer, and I respect your opinion. But you are nameless and faceless as well, so what makes your opinion more credible than mine?

Agree with the one who commented the writer is prejudiced...The show is a full package...Tejasswi Prakash Wayangankar is totally believable as the warrior princess while Rohit suchanti emerged as the surprise package.

@ck1234 anonymous person like urself, who is invisible, is in no position to comment on the writer. It's her opinion that counts, not urs nameless and faceless. The writer has nailed her critique.

Wow, I can't believe how some people persist onto their hatred for someone even after the show ends. If I hate someone, I ignore them. Yet some people can't ignore the actors they hate, which makes me question if they really hate or secretly love them. This is not to discredit people who genuinely review and point out flaws for the makers to work on.

Then they are people who bash. Who put down shows and actors due to their hatred for someone Who mask their hatred in the form of "criticism". Be brave and outrightly say how much you hate her and her show because of that. In fact, though I do not say my fandom is better than her favourite's fandom, at least I do not see my fandom commenting on her favourite and instead ignoring her.

Let RLHN be average and crap. But let's ignore crap like in their favourites show's how she accused her husband of rape just for revenge (but no one calls out crap like this). Or instead of combatting superstitions, she helps to ultimately propagate it all for TRPs. If this show has average acting, let's not forget how most fandoms refused to accept her favourite's win for this aforementioned show. But did not in any way question JW's win. Most people should have agreed with her win for her spectacular acting. Also, the male lead does not abuse the female lead in anyway that is a big step-up from many shows. If not being regressive makes the show crap, I'm happy it's crap.

Continue bashing, Tejasswi and RLHN is winning new fans every day.

Mittals are weird so are their serials.
They have delusion of grandeur, think they are great writers though their creativity lies in mixing up different bollywood movie scenes.
Also all actors are pretty average in acting and the story is crap.
Mittals should stick to saas bahu serials because that is what they are lil good at
