Whether youâve been on 100 dates or 10, one thing is clear â love is complicated. And happily-ever-afters are overrated. Not every story is the same and not every love remains the same. So, what changes? Do we change over time or does our story?
MX Playerâs new relationship drama Pawan & Pooja tackles the complications of love with honesty and takes us on a journey across generations in this digital age. The show kicks off by introducing us to the three generations of Pawan & Pooja â the 60-year-old couple dealing with regrets and trying to reclaim lost time, the 40-year-old couple struggling to bring back young love and passion in their marriage, and the 20-something couple coping with the offline reality of millennial love.
After a quick Valentineâs Day binge-watch, weâve jotted down a (spoiler-free) list of reasons why this MX Player show should be next on your must-watch list.Chasing Love Online
From likes to followers, we are constantly seeking validation online from people we hardly know but refer to as our âonline friendsâ. Right at the start, the show gives us an insight into the world of influencers and their constant struggle to keep their offline and online worlds separate. Pawan Srivastav (Taaruk Raina) & Pooja Maheshwari (Natasha Bharadwaj) are at the center of this online-offline mess. From social media rivals to falling in love on a reality show, a lot is happening in their complicated relationship thatâll keep you hooked.
Not All Happily-Ever-After Are The Same
Boy meets girl. Girl likes boy. They get married and live happily ever after. Most of our clichÃ© rom-coms end right here. But Pawan & Pooja takes us a step further and shows us what some happily-ever-afters look like 15-20 years down the line. Here we meet Pooja and Pawan Mehra (Gul Panag â Sharman Joshi), who still love each other but miss the old spark when they couldnât keep their hands off each other. Marriage, like every other relationship, is complicated. And when Pooja suggests adding another couple to the equation, things start getting steamy and even more complicated.
Starts A Conversation About Open Marriages
We may discuss this in hushed tones or behind closed doors, but itâs no secret that some couples do swing to bring back the old spark in their marriage. But does it work or does it further complicate an already complicated relationship? The show will leave you on either side of the debate and keep you hooked no matter what you choose.
Donât Live Life With Regrets
60-year-old Pooja and Pawan Kalraâs (Deepti Naval-Mahesh Manjrekar) story is a reminder to all of us to live life in the moment. The things we didnât do when we wanted to, will haunt us in our twilight years as we deal with the practicality of life. Donât wait till you get old to buy that expensive massage chair or that cruise holiday, live life in the moment.
