This is a finite drama that ran for eight months. It broke my years-long gap of not watching any Indian dramas — even the actors themselves came on because of the unique concept, stating that "a show like Bepannah comes your way rarely" (!!!). It's a beautiful exploration of grief, loss, and betrayal, with a couple you'll love to root for.
Aditya and Zoya are very different individuals brought together in the most unusual way: Their spouses are found dead together in a road accident, inadvertently revealing their affair. Def not your run-of-the-mill romance. Reeling from the shock of their spouses' betrayal and their deaths, the two spiral into different forms of grief — Aditya through anger, taken out on Zoya, and Zoya through denial. Did their marriages mean nothing? Was it an accident, or was it murder?
Aditya and Zoya are the only ones who understand each other in this situation, and you get to watch how they push each others' growth — Zoya, who is extremely naïve, but through Aditya, is able to become her own person, while she calls Aditya out for lashing out at others, but through her, he is able to face his trauma. The series won a ton of awards, including Show of the Year! To top it off, the theme song and background score are EVERYTHING, and it is my most favorite theme to date.
