Ekta Kapoor’s second installment of Baarish starring Asha Negi and Sharman Joshi is like maa ke haath ka khana, it may lack in spices but is filled with love. The simple yet beautiful tale of Gauravi and Anuj is presented through Anuj’s point of view this time. Anuj Mehta(Sharman Joshi) has been betrayed by his own family and this turns out to be a starting point for his relationship with Gauravi (Gauravi).
ALTBalaji-ZEE5 series Baarish 2 is about Anuj and Gauravi beginning their beautiful journey together, looking for jobs, and staying with Gauravi’s parents. Gauravi just like a dutiful wife stands like a rock with her husband holding his hand no matter what happens. The second season starts with Gauravi and Anuj standing in the family court asking for divorce and then the story begins.
Baarish 2 marks the digital debut of veteran actor Jeetendra Kapoor who can be seen counselling Anuj in the show. Jeetendra’s presence in the romantic drama adds charm to the story of Anuj and Gauravi. The second season of the show narrates the story of Anuj and Gauravi from a new page. Right from starting their new lives together, the duo witnesses everything, spending long nights in balcony talking to each other, struggling to get a job, getting a house of their own and losing their first child as well. The bond between the two of them deepens with each passing day. The season witnesses a tremendous character development of the main leads. Gauravi’s character witnesses being a dutiful wife, a heartbroken mother who lost her unborn child, and a wife who gets accused by her husband for having an affair. Anuj’s character on the other hand witnesses being a lovable husband, an estranged broken father and a suspicious husband.
The romantic drama does not intend to present something new but something meaningful and beautiful. Baarish 2 is all about the purity of love between Anuj and Gauravi. The story intends to deliver something beautiful and makes it a point that people fall in love with the characters once again in the second season. Sharman Joshi narrates the story from his viewpoint this time and the actor’s performance is par excellence. He steals the show as Anuj Mehta, a loving and caring husband, and a Gujarati businessman. Like I said before his character growth is simply amazing and remarkable. Asha Negi as Gauravi is absolutely fantastic in her role. The duo’s chemistry deserves applause. Gauravi and Anuj as individuals nail their characters but their chemistry together is magical.
Baarish 2 falls weak in terms of plot. Seems like the drama is so busy celebrating the love of Anuj and Gauravi that it fails to pay attention to the story. The issues between Anuj and Gauravi arise due to Gauravi’s brother Aniket(Vikram Singh Chauhan) and Anuj’s sister, Shreya(Priya Banerjee). The second season of the show does not witness any progression in their story. Aniket’s character falls flat as the show progresses through. Shreya can be seen playing the evil bitch and is good with her role. Aniket seems lost in the show, having no clue of what is going on and what he is up to.
Baarish 2 will take you down the memory lane, reminiscing all the hurdles you have faced with your loved ones. The second season picks up with a charm that is intact till the very last episode. Gauravi and Anuj will make you smile with tears in your eyes. Do they stay together? What happens in their life? Watch the show to know.
Final verdict:- If you are looking for something warm and beautiful Baarish 2 will take you on an emotional ride.
