Broken But Beautiful Season 3, starring Sidharth Shukla and Sonia Rathee, released on ALTBalaji today. The web series is written by Rajat Arora and directed by Priyanka Ghose. The story revolves around love, heartbreaks, and never-ending romance. The title track is the same – Ye Kya Hua, composed by Rana Mazumder and crooned by Shreya Ghosal and Dev Negi. Akhil Sachdeva and Amaal Malik have composed the songs for the latest season. The series also stars Ehan Bhatt, Jahnavi Dhanrajgir, Manvir Singh and Taniya Kalrra. There are ten episodes with a duration of 25-32 minutes.
The opening shot is of a drunk and broken Agastya Rao (played by Sidharth Shukla) falling on a pile of garbage. In the background, his monologue is playing, hinting that Rumi (played by Sonia Rathee) has left him heartbroken. Agastya is a struggling theatre director whose life changes when he meets Rumi. Rathee’s character helps him grow personally and professionally and is also the reason for destroying the same happiness. Along with the duo, the story also revolves around a third character Ishan, played by Ehan Bhatt.
The first episode of Broken But Beautiful Season 3 shows Agastya’s life and how he meets Rumi. The second episode focuses on Rumi, her obsession for her childhood crush Ishan and how she meets Agastya. From the third episode, their story starts, and from the fifth episode, everything goes downhill. The first four episode help in the story’s development but are full of drama and excitement. From the fifth episode, the pain, trauma and heartbreak begin. But the drama gets more intense and exciting.
Everything that’s shown in Sidharth Shukla and Sonia Rathee’s Broken But Beautiful Season 3 is seen before. We have seen an angry young man meeting a woman who changes him, a woman obsessed with a man for whom girls are crazy and messed up relationships. The story is shown in almost every Bollywood movie and many Hindi daily soaps. Yet, the repetitive formula keeps you hooked because of the storytelling and performances in Priyanka Ghose’s directorial.
Sidharth and Sonia’s chemistry as Agastya and Rumi is steaming hot. So you really want to stick till the end to know what goes wrong and how things will mend again. While Sidharth Shukla is an established actor, his debut in the digital world cannot get better and bigger than this. Sonia Rathee, a production designer, has debuted as an actor with a series backed by Ekta Kapoor. Kapoor is known for giving some of the best actors, and Sonia is every bit perfect as Rumi.
Actor Ehan Bhatt is charming as Ishan, and the makers have used his charm to the fullest to pull the attention. The music of the film is impressive. There are three songs full of heart and soul which you want to add to your playlist immediately.
Well, these are the good points I can mention in my Broken But Beautiful Season 3 review without giving away spoilers. Unfortunately, the ALTBalaji show also has some flaws. In my His Storyy review, I mentioned that the web platform uses the word ‘f*ck’ too much in every second sentence. The same thing happened in Priyanka Ghose’s web show. For a story that runs highly on emotions and vulnerabilities, the dialogues were not impactful. Some jokes are inappropriate.
Broken But Beautiful Season 3: Is it worth watching?
Overall, Sidharth Shukla and Sonia Rathee’s chemistry is a winner in this okayish intense romantic drama. The ending teases us with a sequel, so if you are a fan, you should definitely binge-watch this right away before there are spoilers on the internet.
Broken But Beautiful Season 3 is currently streaming on ALTBalaji.
