The family is important. You all know it’s a place where you find love, peace and an assurance that there are people who will always stand by you no matter what. Sometimes there are problems and misunderstanding within the family but the love keeps it all together. I like watching a few soap operas where they show matters related to family and relationships. Maybe it’s because I am not a big fan of soap operas but have been following this popular show called ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ which is a Hindi language soap opera. It started on April 15, 2014, and airs from Monday to Friday on Zee TV and you can also watch any episode on ZEE5.

Engaging and Intense Family Drama – Watch Kumkum Bhagya on ZEE5 

It is a show which shows the life of a Punjabi lady Sarla Arora who runs this marriage hall called Kumkum Bhagya. She has two daughters Pragya and Bulbul who are poles apart. Sarla wants to see them both happily settled in life.

The elder daughter Pragya is hardworking and supports her family by teaching in a college. She is so committed that she forgets about her own life. The younger daughter Bulbul is a complete opposite and does not bother about family responsibilities. She lives in her own dream world and thinks only about herself and it’s hard to get her out of her dreamy world where everything is perfect.

Sometimes while watching a show you feel connected to a particular character and that’s when it gets interesting. This show takes us through the lives of these two sisters and their mom. The main characters of this show are strong women who live together.

Two main characters are Sriti Jha who plays the elder daughter Pragya and Shabbir Ahluwalia who plays Abhishek Mehra in the lead roles. It is produced under the banner Balaji Telefilms by Ekta Kapoor and is directed by Sameer Kulkarni. Pragya and Abhishek are called Abhigya lovingly by people and they are seen as the cutest TV couple. On the show, they have been together many times and also separated on different occasions. The different twists in the story keep it going and keeps the audience at its toes.

Why you must watch Kumkum Bhagya 

I started watching it when many of my friends kept on talking about it. But once I started watching it, I finished watching many episodes in one sitting. That’s the impact of a good soap opera. You start identifying a particular character as yourself and that’s why to watch it continuously.

Kumkum Bhagya is a family drama/love story which takes you on a journey full of emotions and drama. One of the top most-watched shows on TV, it has often been called the biggest fiction show after its launch. If you are planning to watch from the starting, all the seasons of the show are available online on ZEE5. I am sure it will not fail to entertain you. It’s a mix of comedy, drama, love story and emotional but overall it’s enjoyable.
