Sriti Jha and Shabbir Ahluwalia's Kumkum Bhagya has witnessed yet another leap, this time one of 20 long years and now is when there is another story that's begun. Right before the leap, the audiences saw the same old drama in the lives of Abhi and Pragya. The two came together after a fallout for the nth time and this time, not only do they get married but almost begin to lead a happy life. But, things go wrong when Kiara gets kidnapped and eventually, dies as she falls off the cliff. Oh, and that's not just the drama that we see, we also see Pragya getting pregnant (already) and that's when comes in the leap of 20 years.

Cut to, 20 years later, Abhi and Pragya are staying with one twin each. While Rhea (Naina Singh) stays with Abhi, Prachi (Mugdha Chaphekar) lives with Pragya. In the most typical of events, Prachi and Rhea don't seem to like each other, and most obviously, they do not know that they are sisters after all. In fact, in one of the episodes we also see how Rhea sends Prachi to jail and eventually, it is Abhi who turns her saviour for the day.

A lot is happening on the show, but at the same time, the pace is such that it comes across as slow, purely because most of the times we know what's going to come through. All of this is like the tried and tested formula that is being used but with some reference to the current story track. The show becoming a TRP topper is in all probabilities nowhere close to the content that it is displaying. In fact, if one comes to think of it, it is absolutely absurd and rather unrealistic. 

Kumkum Bhagya has witnessed so many leaps that now, even when it is a major generation leap, the children are almost as old as the parents and the story is just the same with hatred, the struggles of Pragya, ego of Abhi, only with some new twists and turns.

Though the show garnered 2.7 points and topped the list, it is rather surprising how one can clearly see that the content is no longer the king. While one can totally understand that a daily soap has its own limitations, what is not practical is making it so vague and ambiguous that it loses complete touch with reality.

I gave up on this show long ago when Abhis sister and Tanu kept repeating their antics over and over again.

Same old story since 5 years.Ekta kapoor and her serials sucks big time

She just think for her own business
