Hindi TV shows have seen a lot of love stories getting into a melodrama stage wherein an unforeseen misunderstanding forces the lead pair to separate after being bound by the institution of marriage. With the separation happening, the lead boy and the lead girl go their own way. However, the lead girl is beckoned with a situation wherein she gets to know that she is pregnant, but is faced with the sorrow of not even being able to tell her ex-husband about it. Years later, this same child acts as a catalyst in bringing the estranged father and mother together.

Does this pattern of storytelling ring a bell in your ears? Have you seen it coming more than often? Very true, this is a story plot that gets commonly used when any show needs to take a separation phase followed by a leap in time.

We look at the Hindi GEC shows that have traversed this path in very recent times!!

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai:

There was a phase in this long-running Star Plus show produced by Rajan Shahi’s Director’s Kut wherein Kartik (Mohsin Khan) and Naira (Shivangi Joshi) went through a major misunderstanding, which resulted in their separation. Naira who wanted to share the news of her pregnancy with Kartik, never told him about it and accepted the fact that Kartik does not trust her anymore and walked away from his life. Naira single-handedly delivered her child Kairav, who later got instrumental in uniting the parents, Kartik and Naira.

Choti Sarrdaarni:

Choti Sarrdaarni the Colors show produced by Cockrow and Shaika Entertainment, saw the big phase where Meher (Nimrit Kaur) was accused of killing her own brother Jagga. When she was serving her jail sentence, she was actually pregnant with Seher, but she never told this truth to Sarabjeet (Avinesh Rekhi). The leap in the story happened post which the focus shifted to Kashmir where Meher lived a life with her daughter Seher. She was a cook in a hotel in Kashmir where she got face to face with Sarabjit again. Ultimately, it was Seher’s love that united her parents.

Qurbaan Hua:

A big misunderstanding in Qurbaan Hua the Zee TV show saw the lovers Neel (Rajveer Singh) and Chahat (Pratibha Ranta) getting separated. Chahat was blamed to have been a terrorist and an anti-national. Only after moving away from Neel’s life, Chahat got to know that she was expecting. She delivered twin kids, but destiny paved a way for Neel to adopt one of the twins, while the other was with Chahat. Later, the love of the twins brought together the parents.

Kumkum Bhagya:

The long-running Zee TV show produced by Balaji Telefilms saw Dadi losing her life, for which Pragya (Sriti Jha) was blamed. Abhi (Shabir Ahluwalia) asked Pragya to go out of his life. A shocked Pragya tried to commit suicide when she got to know that she was pregnant with Abhi’s kid. Pragya raised the kid Kiara single-handedly. Later, it was Kiara who united the couple again after years.

Yeh Hai Chahatein:

This Balaji Telefilms show on Star Plus saw the big drama of Venky’s death separating Rudraksh (Abrar Qazi) and Preesha (Sargun Kaur Luthra). Venky, Preesha’s brother was killed in a tragic way, post which Preesha was blamed for the murder. However, when in jail, Preesha got to know that she was pregnant. Destiny saved her in an unfortunate accident when she was being transported to jail. While Rudraksh felt that Preesha died in the accident, Preesha escaped and changed her identity and got to a newer destination to raise her kid. Preesha was seen living with her daughter Roohi. The plot later saw Roohi and Rudraksh bonding big time, and Roohi being instrumental in bringing the parents together.

Well, if you put your thinking caps on and ponder over this, you will get more and more examples of this basic plot.
