It is the fast pace of the story that leaves us no time to emotionally invest in the two characters or empathise with their lives

Honge Juda Ha Num beamed on our TV screens amidst a lot of hype. A unique love story which begins where most love stories end seemed a great promise made by the makers, add to that, two established actors-Raqesh Vasishth and Aamna Sharif - were playing the couple, so yes, the show was eagerly awaited.

However, we are yet to be blown away. Maybe it's the fast pace of the story that leaves us no time to emotionally invest in the two characters or empathise with their lives. Maybe, the makers just wanted to do away with the couple's 'problems' and straightaway come to their love story which even as you read this has begun. So four episodes down, we have already seen Muskaan and Rohan, a couple who marry against the girl's parents', especially her mother's wishes she's sacrificed her sports cars to adjust to Rohan's little family car without as much as an uff, we are told! fight incessantly (the two actors hamming it all the way especially in the first episode), argue about this one incident of their past (we guess, they lost a child). Rohan's ultimatum to her to 'either forget the past or live with me in the present', and finally the two deciding to bury their differences and reconcile only to meet a cruel car accident! By the third episode, they have lost their memories and in the fourth, the story tells us that they shouldn't be crossing each other's paths till they get their 'memory' back. Even as we write this, a year has passed and their love story has begun afresh.
