Story:

Never Kiss Your Best Friend 2 talks about Tanie and Sumer after they break up and move on in their separate lives, however, fate brings them back together. Are they going to fall in love again or just going to try to be best friends again?

Review:

If you like cliched romantic dramas then the latest ZEE5 series called Never Kiss Your Best Friend Season 2 is for you. For the unversed, the first season of the Nakuul Mehta and Anya Singh starrer is a tale of two best friends, who meet during college, become best friends and later fall in love.

Although if you have watched the first instalment then you definitely know that you are going to be on a roller coaster ride of love, friendship and heartbreak.

Two years have passed since Tanie (Anya) broke up with Sumer (Nakuul) and now she works at a production firm as a writer in London. The show progresses and it introduces new characters such as Sarah Jane Dias as Lavanya, a film producer, Sapna Pabbi as Alisha, a PR agent-turned actress and Karan Wahi as Karan Saxena, a famous actor.

The great locations of London, the fashionable attires of not only the actors but the general crowd in the show keep you hooked with the screen.

Tanie and Sumer meet at the production firm as writer and director and are forced to work together on a show. They try to keep it as professional as they can but they end up fighting as they haven't got closure from each other yet. Writers of the show seem to have written the scenes and the dialogues according to the gen z as the accent and slang used by the actors relate to the new generation. Meanwhile, the fights between the duo tend to make you laugh and seem adorable.

Karan enters the show as Alisha's fling but ends up becoming Tanie's boyfriend and a lead actor in Sumer's film. Later, the series chronicles the love triangle as the protagonists become best friends again and the actress starts having feelings for both the men. Though the audience had it coming, even so, it felt like writers could have explained or presented it with less predictability.

Amidst all the young love stories, Jaaved Jaaferi's Bittu finds his long lost love Sangeeta (played by Deepti Bhatnagar) and tries to win her back. At one point on the show, it makes you quite curious to know if this mid-age couple is going to end up together or not.

As a rom-com fan, it might also disappoint you that the show explores quite less between Karan and Tanie and it also makes you click the forward button several times due to the predictability of the show. However, it picks up the pace towards the end and finishes off with a cliffhanger as Nakuul hints at another season.

Verdict:

Never Kiss Your Best Friend 2 is full of predictability and clichés, but the tone of the show keeps you hooked and curious about what happens next.
