Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon
The first shot shows Barun's character, Advay Singh Raizada, saving a puppy, and proclaiming to the world that he has no time for love and innocence in his life.
The episode had unnecessary melodrama, a random dance number, and a number of women dressed in saris so bright it could stop traffic. The female lead, Chandni (Shivani Tomar's character) has a deep dark past, but Advay's past is apparently a complete monster compared to Chandni's, and he holds her responsible for the death of his parents.
The episode would have had more clarity had the writer not tried to cram so much information in a 24-minute show.
The performances are decent enough. But the show's ultimate test would be when the leads, Barun and Shivani, share some screen space together, which they obviously didn't in the pilot. Too soon, probably.
