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

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.
