Colors introduced a refreshing fiction drama, Muskuraane Ki Vajah Tum Ho produced by Satori Media, which depicts the story of one such strong-willed woman- Katha, who takes a bold step of embracing motherhood while dissuading all social norms.  But she is ridiculed and criticized by everyone who believes that a woman is incapable of upbringing a child without a man’s support.

Katha is an optimistic young girl from Nainital who works at an NGO for women. Her life takes an unexpected turn as she, instead of giving in to society’s stereotypical views, decides to raise her child by herself. Destined to cross paths with Katha, Kabir, a suave businessman from Udaipur gets smitten by her persona and resilience, he falls for Katha and convinces her to get married. The show features debutant Tanvi Malhara as the protagonist Katha, whereas actor Kunal Jaisingh essays the role of Kabir. Abhishek Malik plays the character of Katha’s boyfriend Rahul. Apart from these three main actors, the show has a stellar star cast including Moon Banerjee, Hiten Paintal, Deepali Pansare, Pratichi Mishra, and Neha Narang amongst others.

Good Points

All the actors have put in a tremendous effort to portray their respective characters precisely as envisioned by the writers. Tanvi Malhara is a good find. Her delivery of dialogue and innocence while essaying the role are particularly excellent. Kunal Jai Singh also aces his role as the flamboyant, practical, and dashing Kabir. The show has a simple and subtle narrative, but it addresses a hard issue that in many ways is relevant even today.

Bad Points

This new drama is nothing out-of-the-box. As it gave us a déjà vu feel when we saw the first promo of the show wherein pregnant Katha is seen raising questions to the society. Similarly, we had seen Colors show Choti Sarrdaarni’s Meher (Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia) standing up for her rights and for the rights of her unborn child in the first promo and the poster of the show. It seems that the show is inspired by Choti Sarrdaarni. Well, only time will tell if this is true or not?

From the first few episodes, we feel the masala and drama quotient will only intensify with time and this show will do well, hopefully. We credit Muskurane Ki Wajah Tum Ho with 2.5 out of 5 stars.
