Baarish Season 2 is a series filled with family drama and revolves around the question of how did a seemingly happy couple end up parting ways? The show stars Sharman Joshi and Asha Negi in the lead roles and Manit Joura, Vikram Singh Chauhan and Priya Banerjee as supporting characters. The show has been directed by Nandita Mehra and developed by Ekta Kapoor. Baarish Season 2 can be streamed on ALTBalaji and ZEE5.
The series revolves around a Gujarati businessman called Anuj (Sharman Joshi), who is married to a Marathi girl Gauravi (Asha Negi). In the previous season, Anuj and Gauravi were shown falling madly in love with each other. They were strong together and ready to do anything for the other one’s happiness.
However, in the latest season, the two are seen experiencing the bitter side of a relationship. Jealousy, suspicion and lack of understanding begins to creep in between the couple. After a traumatic incident, Anuj pledges that they would never face a shortage of money and works harder than ever to earn money.
This leads to them spending more and more time apart. While Anuj is able to provide Gauravi with a lavish lifestyle, he is unable to give her emotional support. This leads to another man entering their lives. Anuj then starts getting insecure and suspicious all the time. As the story unfolds, the two are seen growing farther apart leading them to file for a divorce.
Sharman Joshi’s acting in the series is commendable. From an innocent loving husband to an angry suspicious husband, he is a treat to watch. Asha Negi, too, has done justice to her character. The story has been written well.
There were many things in the series that did not work well. The subplots were weak and the supporting characters were not well rounded up. Moreover, for an OTT format, this show seems more like a daily soap fit for the television audience. Many scenes are dragged for too long with many clichéd ideas, including ‘The female character won’t say a word when wronged’, ‘Husband getting jealous if a male friend is feeding cake to wife’ and the age-old ‘girl was a gold digger’ tropes. The creators of the show gave too many twists and turns in a failed attempt to keep the audience glued to the screen but the series became very predictable after an extent.
The show sure has clichéd plots but can be watched for Sharman Joshi’s acting performance. It serves as an entertainment source during the lockdown. However, if you are not a fan of drama, you could totally let this show slip by.
