An anthology featuring six real-life couples from around the nation who share inspiring tales of love, optimism, joy, and overcoming adversity.


Produced by Dharmatic Entertainment and conceptualized by Somen Mishra, this anthology honors love that transcends boundaries of gender, caste, and religion. The show stays loyal to its emotional core by not upping the glitz factor in the narrative. The experiences and tales from the actual protagonists give realism and strike a deep chord with the audience.

The six directors who filmed the individual episodes were Akshay Indikar, Archana Phadke, Collin D’Cunha, Hardik Mehta, Shazia Iqbal, and Vivek Soni.

The first episode, “An Unsuitable Girl,” which was directed by Hardik Mehta, tells the story of a typical North Indian meeting South Indian tale by examining the challenges that Aekta Kapoor and Ullekh NP face in their daily lives. Here, Aekta’s two daughters from a previous marriage were the adversaries. Seeing how these children thought and how the couple dealt with it is fascinating.

The second episode tells the love story of radio hosts Nicholas J. Kharnami and Rajani K. Chhetri from Shillong, who got together as a result of an on-air practical joke. ‘Love On Air’, directed by Vivek Soni, shows their mature transformation from commitment phobia to the true attachment.

‘Raah Sangharsh Ki,’ directed by Marathi filmmaker Akshay Indikar, tells the story of an intercaste marriage between Rahul Banerjee, an IIT graduate, and Subhadra Khaperde, a Dalit woman he met at a Narmada Bachao Andolan demonstration in 1991 and fell in love with.

Marriage is often the conclusion of love, but keeping a marriage together is very difficult. ‘Faasley’ by Archana Phadke tells the tale of Dhanya, a native of Kerala, and Homayon, an Afghan, who met while studying in Moscow. The novel explores the power of love. Throughout their twenty years of marriage, the couple has encountered many difficulties, including struggling to make ends meet in war-torn Afghanistan.

The story of Tista Das and Dipan, the first transgender couple to get married in West Bengal, is told in the final episode, “Love Beyond Labels,” which was directed by Collin D’Cunha. It follows their journey from calling a helpline for support to making history in their marriage.

These half-hourly episodes may not be to everyone’s taste, despite the touching and genuine retelling of these true love stories. On Valentine’s Day, spend some time together reading these love stories with your significant other. Those seeking more spicy entertainment can watch romantic dramas.
