Some say that love happens just once in a lifetime ... But what happens when you lose that one person who meant everything to you? While the institution of marriage is known to bring two souls together in the most beautiful union ever, can a second marriage become the glue that pieces back the shards of two broken hearts to make them whole again? Even today, the prospect of remarriage is a taboo across several parts of India, with conservative sections of society still frowning at those who dare to start a life with a new partner. What makes the re-marriage of Yash and Aarti even more challenging is the fact that they are both parents to young children. Will their children be able to come to terms with the idea of having a new parent enter their lives? Will there be friction between the two sets of children, resulting in complications between the partners? Only time will tell!
Punar Vivah is a mature, progressive show that sensitively captures the journey of a man and a woman, who having faced a debacle in their first attempts at marriage, are brave enough to give life a second chance. The show delves into the dynamics of re-marriage, showcasing the trials and tribulations that are a part of re-adjusting to a second life partner. When the man you called your soul mate leaves you for another woman, can you possibly bring yourself to believe in the sanctity of marriage again? After the woman you fell hopelessly in love with passes away, crushing your every romantic dream, can you muster the courage to feel for another afresh? Will the two be able to bring happiness to each others1 lives and feel complete once again? Will the two feel the same intensity and excitement that they had experienced in their first brush with love?
Lending a rare intensity and depth to the male protagonist Yash is handsome actor Gurmeet Chaudhary. His portrayal of the quiet, arrogant, widowed father of two has impressed everyone who has seen the rushes of the show. Kratika Sengar, who blew your mind away as the sword-wielding Rani Laxmibai in Zee TV's historical drama Jhansi Ki Rani, charging away on horseback and fighting with unmatched zeal for her soil, makes a comeback to the small screen as Aarti, a woman who hasn't lost her spunk, charm or positivity despite a painful divorce.
‘Stay tuned as Punar Vivah premieres on Monday, February 20 and airs every Monday-Friday at 10:30 PM, only on Zee TV.
