Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata hai Review

Below I have given the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata hai spoilers so that you guys can get the update on the serial.

But the story somewhere started becoming stretchy and boring. Kartik has gotten married a lot of times on the show. Beginning with a portrayal of lovely family issues and realistic drama, the program has fallen to the level of usual saas-bahu drama to add spice and keep the audience engaged in some way. Though Indian drama soaps might be overly dramatic and unrealistic at times, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata hai video has repeatedly purchased ideas that appeared to be completely removed from reality. YRKKH has been following the same schemes for a long time, and no one knows about it.

Overall, this show is lighthearted family entertainment content that allows us to relax and enjoy being cool and joyful.
