Kuch toh Log Kahenge……. The moment we come across this line, all we think about Sharmila Tagore & Rajesh Khanna’s song in Amar Prem. Well that was in 1971. Here we are in 2011, and now if u ask people about Kuch toh Log Kahenge, don’t be surprised if you get to here this ” Oh Dr. Ashutosh and Dr Nidhi. Well times have changed, and so does the meaning of this lyrics. Sony has come up with a new TV serial, although its a remake of the Pakistani classical TV drama Dhoop Kinare, the presentation and the look of the serial is quiet refreshing.

Lets get down to the details of the show, well not all of them, but will keep some unsaid so that you can enjoy the show. As they say, one does not enjoy the show till one watches it or feels it. The Opening song ie the original theme “Saiyan Naino Ki Bhasha” is already a huge hit. This serial is slowly but surely getting attention and is getting popular as we speak. Its a story of a middle aged man and a young doctor falling in love with each other. Not to forget another Sr Doctor who is in love with Dr Ashutosh.

Just observe and watch his expressions, its just amazing. Yes he is the son of Nutan, renowned film actress. He manages to speak through his eyes and expressions. I know you also want to hear about the other cast ie Dr Nidhi. So here we go, Dr Nidhi ie Kritika Kamra is a person full of life and a very hard working doctor. All she wants is to make her patients happy and always manages to bring a smile to their faces. YES, that includes Dr Ashutosh. 🙂 Yes there is also a grey character in this story, its Dr Mallika, ie Rukhsar Rehman. Dr Mallika is in love with Dr Ashutosh, and over the years she is been waiting for him. But the recent events have forced her to play some evil games against Dr Nidhi.
