After having conquered daily soaps, Ekta Kapoor is all set to venture into digital space with her upcoming web series for ALT Balaji -'Karrle Tu Bhi Mohabbat', 'The Test Case', 'Dev DD', 'Romil and Jugal,' and 'Bewafaa Sii Wafaa' to name a few.

What makes them a worthy watch is their unique storyline and a distinguished concept and today, we will analyse 'Romil and Jugal'.

After having seen so many adaptations of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, this one from Ekta Kapoor is the kind which is never been seen before.

While in the real world gays are often outcasted, Romil and Jugal's story is the kind which has a rather mature take to it. It is the love story of Romil and Juggal, their struggles and insecurities and a handful of people around them - some who understand them and some who do not.

The story is about Jugal Subramaniam (Manraj Singh) and Romil Kohli (Rajeev Siddhartha). While Jugal is totally aware of his sexual orientation and his best friend Meher knows about it, his conservative south Indian parents turn out to be the cause of his fear. Romil, on the other hand, is a hot, muscle man, way too good with girls and sets the beats of Jugal's heart high.

Jugal takes the first step towards Romil and casts him as Romeo in his play. However, as we'd expect, Meher, despite knowing Jugal being gay, has feelings for him and obviously does not like his inclination towards Romil.

While on a trip, Jugal dares to kiss Romil and what follows is a lot of action and drama. And, amidst all of it, their love is what prevails!

What we liked:

Or rather, I should say, LOVED. From a first person's (mine) perspective, the duo has done justice to their characters at a different level altogether. Manraj aka Jugal's performance has to be made special mention of, and of course, the efforts of director Nupur Asthana deserves to be lauded.

We not only like the entire approach and the feel that the show has to it, but also the intricacies that have been so well looked into.


From the two families to the duo, both keep fighting with each other; from girls being in love with the two men, to the two men being in love with each other, Romil and Jugal is astory that will come across as a breath a fresh air into the minds and to the souls.
