Shaurya Aur Anokhi Ki Kahaani - SAAKK Review
Shaurya Aur Anokhi Ki Kahaani is a story based on Anokhi and Shaurya’s poles apart opinions about gender equality.
Shaurya was neglected by his mother so he is against a working woman. Anokhi thinks the society is dominated by patriarchy and women should get equal opportunities.
The serial has a concept of women empowerment which is not at all new. However, the performance and dialogue delivery make the serial desirable.
The show still lacks uniqueness as it follows the same old concept of the lead pair hating each other before falling in love.
Overall Shaurya Aur Anokhi Ki Kahaani has potential but lacks behind in terms of uniqueness.
