Dil Se Dil Tak sees the comeback of Sidharth Shukla on TV after a couple of years. The show also has Rashami Desai and Jasmin Bhasin in lead roles. Produced by Shashi and Sumeet Mittal, it is reportedly based on the Salman Khan-Rani Mukerji-Preity Zinta starrer Chori Chori Chupke Chupke. Dil Se Dil Tak got us interested with its first promo that had Sidharth and Rashami cosying up on the song, Aye Udi Udi from Saathiya. We are yet to see the entry of Jasmin on the show. She plays Teni, a role similar to what was played by Preity in the film.
What is it about?
Sidharth Shukla is Parth Bhanushali, the scion of a wealthy Gujarati family in Baroda. His relationship with his grandson, Parth has strained because of the latter’s decision to marry a Bengali girl Shauvri (Rashami Desai) two years ago. This has created a rift between Parth, his mother and his grandfather. Finally, it is decided that he will move out of the family home to America. However, enroute they meet with an accident and it is revealed that Parth’s wife is pregnant. She is brought back home and happiness ensues in the family. But will the joy last?

Sidharth Shukla is back and his chemistry with Rashami is quite good. It is a romantic show with a strong love story as the backdrop. The opening sequence between Parth (Sidharth Shukla) and Rashami was the highlight of the show. Veteran actor Tej Sapru is convincing as Parth’s loving yet orthodox grandfather. Actress Vaishavi Macdonald also makes her presence felt as Parth’s mother. The first episode progressed at a good pace and we’ll see Jasmin’s entry soon.

The only difference between Chori Chori Chupke Chupke and Dil Se Dil Tak seems to be the fact that Rani Mukerji was a much-loved bahu unlike Rashami’s character. The Bhanushali’s are quite typical of the large Indian families we see in daily soaps. Given the rather modern promos, we were expecting a more cosmopolitan set-up. Some of the lines said have been done to death in such family sagas.
Dil Se Dil Tak does promise some drama in the coming episodes without going overboard. It would be nice to see more of Sidharth and Rashami on the screen. The current family dramas cum romances can wear you off with high melodrama but Dil Se Dil Tak so far seems to be a bit restrained.
