Story So Far:

Vedika is seen as a simple and homely woman. She looks after her daughter. She wakes up in the morning and gets busy in household chores. Sahil is a carefree youngster. He enjoys the ride in his high-end car. They both listen to the same radio programme. They get to hear a love story. RJ tells about a young guy eloping with an elderly woman. Vedika and Sahil have different opinions on the matter. Sahil feels if wife is elder than the husband, she will be more mature and sensible. Sahil calls the RJ and gives his opinion. He feels love has no connection with age. Vedika doesn't like the new generation's thinking. She believes fulfilling responsibility is everything.

Sahil's super-rich family is introduced. He has a caring family. Vedika lives with her daughter and mother. She has lost her husband Anurag seven years ago. She never thought to get remarried. She runs the house single-handedly. Vedika prepares for an interview. Her mother worries for the family expenses. Vedika assures that she will make everything fine. Vedika gets troubled by a neighbor. She doesn't want to get re-married. She has support of her family. Sahil lies to the family. He hides that he has failed in the exams. He arranges a fake degree to please his family. He doesn't want them to get upset because of him. The family congratulates him for his graduation. They soon learn about Sahil's lie.

Sahil tells them that he has done this for keeping their happiness. Badi Amma gets angry on him. She regrets that he has broken her trust. Sahil promises her that he will succeed in life. Badi Amma decides to get him married. Sahil goes to meet the girl chosen by Badimaa. Vedika waits for her interviewer. Vedika and Sahil meet at the cafe. They have a misunderstanding. Vedika tells him about her teenaged daughter. Sahil flirts with her. He instantly proposes her for marriage. Vedika witnesses the unexpected.

Our Take:

The show doesn't have any fresh concept. Such concept of age bar affecting relationships is seen before. Still, the difference here is the young guy falling in love with an elderly woman. The show focusses on the subject of gender equality. If an elderly man can wed a younger woman, then an elderly woman can also wed a younger man. The show deals with biasing, discrimination and forced customs faced by women in the society. The story seem to have few loopholes, which can be overlooked with the fast paced flow.

The show's tagline No License To Love draws much attention. Sahil's limitless love for Vedika passes through testing times. His rigidity and determined love wins over all the tough hurdles of life. Suhasi Dhami wonderfully steps in Vedika's shoes. She doesn't look too aged to play a 42 year old woman. She does complete justice to her subtle character. Karan Jotwani brings much charm and enthusiasm in his light natured portrayal of Sahil. He still has to crack a remarkable chemistry with Suhasi. Sahil's flirty side adding humor to the tensed life of Vedika, brings some relieving moments. It will be interesting to see how Sahil influences Vedika towards an unseen fresh future.


The show brings a sweet feel while watching. The story shouldn't get deviated from their love drama to Saas-Bahu saga. Performances are good so far. Leads chemistry would be getting better with every episode. A good family entertainer.

Our Rating:

3 out of 5

I wish  all the best to this story n I hope this show ll succeed more n more. Lead pair chemistry is the magnet of the show. As per the article makers should not convert it to saas bahu drama.

Thks for sharing such a beautiful reviewSmile

AKAJS is really a good show with freshing concept...for me the chemistry of SaDika is incredible and am loving them a little more day by day Embarrassed hope CVs ll not turn it into saas-bahu saga after the marriage.

Suhasi is doing a fab job as Vedika and Karan is nailing as Sahil

I-F team are very partial... shows with popular faces (Jennifer/Barun etc) or regressive creators like Gul and Ekta get a lot of coverage and tagged as fresh and unique Dead

'Their age difference comes between them' bit worries...I hope it's not to the point we see a divorce and him marrying Nidhi or someone else.

As they said, please don't let it be pressured into becoming a saas-bahu drama.

I'd rather have a decent 50 episode show with no character assassination than everything being ruined to make trp audience happy or to make the show run longer.

@Ahlaam i am happy that this show doesnt have popular face becoz both SuRan are perfect in their role. Cant imagine others now. This show is produced by Bodhi Tree production house. Ekta and Gul uses same tracks and recycles shows. So we will be free from this. We need freshness
