All was not well in Zee TV’s Pavitra Rishta. No wonder the fans were missing the Arjun – Purvi track and the constant leap was troubling the Pavitra Rishta fanatics who had remained loyal to the show till its 1000 episodes. The estrange relationship between Arjun (Ritwik) and Purvi (Asha Negi) not only annoyed their fans but also made them ignore the serial completely, eventually dropping the TRPs of the serial.
However with the leap there was a change which had the ability of bringing back the mojjo of the serial once again and that was of course Archana’s grand daughter Ankita’s (Ankita Lokhande) entry. Yes, Ankita Lokhande in a young role took the responsiblity of bringing the show back on track. While, it appeared the show is going to end, the show just got interesting with a love twist of Ankita and her Sir Naren.
The whole story of poor abla Archana continued in the form of Ankita. However, Ankita’s struggle is slightly different from Archana. With all the twist and turn Ankita marries Naren, her sir who is slightly mentally challenged post his accident in London. However, he thinks Akita as his ex and falls in love with her. He loves Ankita way too much and calls her Ahana. No wonder their love chemistry became the reason of audiences watchiing the serial back, and Pavitra Rishta was back on track as far as its viewership was concerned.
In last few episodes, Ankita as a disguised maid saved Naren from his own family. She could get him back to normal only with the help of her sister, her sister’s husband Shashank and a friend Shehkar. The change of events in the show with lot of suspense and “What will happen” next factor really made the show worth watching once again. Majority of its loyal spectators are mostly back again watching the show with equal interest.
However, there are others like me who are still more inclined towards the Arjun – Purvi jodi and want their track once again with equal love – shuv and some romantic segments. The online petition which was signed by 10,000 viewers all over India just to get them back cannot be ignored when it comes to their popularity. This fan following is the sole reason where the reel life as well as real life love birds could manage to lift the trophy of Nach Baliye Season 6
The new generation kids Pari and Priya might be doing good butthey are still not ruling our hearts like Purvi, Ovi, Soham, Onir or that matter even Punni. I hope their track goes interesting and the showcontinues to entertain its fans. With such a hugefan following of the serial,I can see the show crossing 1500 episodes easily, provided they don’t drag and keep the track less complicated when it comes to relationship.
So, far it is good to seethat Pavitra Rishta is back and Ankita who has been asdociated with the serial from day 1 has taken the responsibility of moving the show ahead with her tears, abla-strong naari acts and of course her beautiful face.
All, I can say is Pavitra Rishta is back, so all the viewers who stopped watching the serial, its time to switch on Zee TV at 9pm once again!
