The adorable sibling chemistry between Jassi and Jogi, who love each other to the core and care for each other.
The contradiction portrayed in the kind of children’s attributes, where one is shown as a shy introvert and family girl while the other one comes across as an extrovert, rebel and free spirited; giving some great scenes when they come at loggerheads.
WHAT’S NOT NEW?
The cliched love triangle (a guy-between-two-girls) track, which is seemed to be developing from the latest episode.
Bhavika Sharma isn’t convincing as the bratty kid and has various loopholes in her performance.
Gautami Kapoor’s performance is the least convincing of the cast, where she underplays her role of a possessive and skeptical mother.
Being the second season of a successful show, Parvarrish Season 2 lives up to the promise of its genre with some great performances. Tackling a similar concept in a different manner is the right approach and should work in the favour of the show. It may take time to develop an audience apart from the loyal ones, but if strong content continues to be the prime priority, the show is sure to be a success.
