The show is still full of cliches but manages to invoke emotions like a laugh.

Dear Ishq episode 3 review: Sehban Azim's show sees slight improvement
Dear Ishq.

Asmita wants to make things right with her boss and Abhimanyu. Will she be able to tell the truth? What will happen post that?


Dear Ishq episode 3 is here and just when you expect something better, the cliches are back. This episode once again begins with glimpses of buildings in Mumbai. Yawn, yawn, yawn (what, the show has a copyright of being overly-dramatic?)

And of course, since this show is about a writer and editor, how can they not be around books all the time? Even in a cafe, the focus is on the books. Cliched to the core.

Sehban Azim's Abhimanyu Razdan has a typical entry. It's almost as if the makers are forcing a trend down the audiences throat - that of men with egos entering with a 'hey hey.' For next time, probably work on the lines of 'haaye haaye' since they are an aafat through-and-through?

Sehban nails the khadoos character. However, that is all that is there to him even this time and honestly, it's getting a little too boring now.

Niyati Fatnani as Asmita Roy is all about expressing with her eyes this time. Thankfully, she does a better job at that than with dialogues.

The show finally picks up the pace as the cheese-hating Asmita gets the cheesiest proposal.

Kishwer Merchant as Maya is barely there this time around. She, however, does a good job nonetheless.

The camera angles and close-ups are back. Welcome to Hindi TV drama at its peak.

The episode ends on a random note. It is not even a cliffhanger.


There is a slight improvement in Dear Ishq but this show has a long way to go when it comes to getting rid of the stereotypes.
