Dear Ishq surprises you in some places this time around, which is very new for the show.

Dear Ishq episode 27 review: Sehban Azim-Niyati Fatnani's show is better but still needs to get there
Dear Ishq.

Last Updated: 10.34 PM, Feb 25, 2023



Asmita discusses Abhimanyu’s next book when they come to know about a big move. Will this change everything?


Dear Ishq begins with Niyati Fatnani in the role of Asmita Roy. The scene with her tries to be funny but ends up being sad instead. The music helps but only to very little extent. Niyati barely impresses as soon as she comes. Beena Banerjee and Jyoti Mukherji as Asmita’s grandmom-mom are in the scene just for the sake of it.

Sehban Azim’s Abhimanyu Razdan enters the premise soon after and he’s just like always. Somehow, he adds the charm. His character is obviously written better than Asmita’s and that helps to a great extent.

His arrogant side is back. The show promotes such a behaviour and asks you to tolerate it. Slow claps much?

Thankfully, the makers redeem him with Peter. For the first time, Abhimanyu is responsible for showing Peter the mirror. His scene with Asmita only adds flavour to the extended shot.

Puneet Tejwani as Peter is just what was missing in the scene and guess what? He’s here too! As expected, there’s no surprise element to him.

Kunal Verma’s Rizwan Khan has a mediocre entry but gets better, like always. Vikas Grover as Rizwan’s lover Anirban is a pokerface like always. That, however, works well with the factor that he is gay and shy.

Sugandh Dhindaw as Bani is seen only in a flashback. Simran Rawal as Arya and Tanya Sharma as Shalini are barely there. They do raise suspicion but that’s about it.

It’s interesting to see Abhimanyu’s new side as the episode comes to an end. His calm and composed nature goes against everything this one has been up for so long and somehow, that’s a pleasant and welcomed surprise.


Dear Ishq’s latest episode is a pleasant surprise. While it stays true to its boring theme and the story moves forward at a snail’s pace, at least there’s no overdrama or useless shots in this series. Small bits of progress with this one, we guess.-
