Story: The story begins with the advice given to seven childhood friends by a face reader at a Christmas carnival. The story quickly progresses by over a decade when two of the friends, Sameer and Sheetal, celebrate their third anniversary. During the celebrations, Rishab (Suhail Nayyar) proposes Lavanya (Tamannaah Bhatia). Rishab’s unexpected move sets the path for the upcoming events of all the friends’ lives, with unknown twists and turns.
Analysis: Jee Karda tells the stories of seven childhood friends as they sail together into adulthood. Their unfailing connection enables them to face the challenges of life without fear and to live their lives according to their own conditions. They say what they think, whether by sharing their from vacation to abortion with their partner or discussing sexual relations before or after marriage. Each character tackles their individual problems while finding comfort and support in his or her group. The beauty of the show lies in their strong bond and how they learn to live their lives fully without being obliged to explain and justify their actions.
The show impresses with the apt casting for almost every character, and the performances were also natural. However, the series slowly turns into a regular outing which explores the lives of rich class youth with a less impact on the emotional side. The premise had the potential to be an enjoyable and compelling ride at the same time. However the narrative falls short because of the lack of connectivity factor with the characters. If only the writing had been deeper and genuine, the overall effect of the show could have been better.
Performances: Tamannaah Bhatia was too good as she performs effortlessly in the character along with the glamour show. Suhail Nayyar was impressive while Aashim Gulati, Anya Singh, Hussain Dalal, Sayan Banerjee, Simon Singh and Samvedna Suwalka all others were apt.
