The show brings a bold new love story of a young girl Ahana Raichand (Smriti Kalra) who gets attracted to a middle-aged, widower and father of two Anant Mathur (Sanjay Kapoor). While their age difference is already a barrier that they will have to overcome, another complication arises when Ahana mother, Laila Raichand (Niki Aneja) too vies for Anant’s attention. The first episode of Dil Sambhal Jaa Zara aired tonight and here’s our first impression.
The first episode of Dil Sambhal Jaa Zara is spent in introducing us to the various characters of the show. The narrative spends generous time in sketching various nuances of these characters and the relationship dynamics.
The show starts with a flash back scene where Ahana reaches India from the US and her father drives her back home, only to catch the mother getting cozy with another man. This is the first time that Ahana witnesses the marital discord between her parents and this spoils her relationship with her mother Laila forever.
We also see how Ahana her own getaway spot in the city, where she likes to spend some alone time, remembering her dad. It is at this beautiful, serene setting where she first runs into Anant Mathur (Sanjay Kapoor). He is a widower and her father Rahul Raichand’s friend. Both strike up a conversation and their common emotion of dealing with a precious loss creates an instant connect between them. He offers to follow her in his car just to see that she reaches home safe. The next morning when Laila Raichand finds out that Anant had come to drop Ahana, her face instantly lights up.
Next we see Ahana confront her sister Saloni, who is due to get married in two days. She is upset since her ex boyfriend Rehan (Anant Mathur’s nephew) has been sending her flowers and bothering her. Ahana decides to give Rehan a piece of her mind. She reaches the Mathur bungalow to reprimand Rehan and on her way back, runs into Anant. The show ends with Anant and Ananya driving away in his car to the Raichand pad.
