For anyone who has even a faint memory of the medical drama Sanjivani: A Medical Boon, followed by its sequel Dill Mill Gayye, the third installment is making a comeback next week from August 12. Possibly one of the biggest launch this year, the show with Surbhi Chandna and Namit Khanna in the lead roles, producer Siddharth P Malhotra has left no stone unturned to live up to the hype with a stellar set, contemporary theme and creative lens and not to forget, a good looking ensemble cast. 

The first episode itself opens to a larger than life spectacle of Dr Siddhant Mathur (played by Namit Khanna), who is a big flirt, going shirtless and rescuing a young boy who falls in a river. Sid believes in taking from the rich and giving it to the poor and doesn't mind taking the crooked road. On the other hand, enters a first-year resident Dr Ishani Arora (played by Surbhi Chandna) who is extremely righteous and intelligent. Passionate and a 'know-it-all' Ishani is strong yet vulnerable because of her past. While she is a rule-follower, Sid is a rule-breaker, and this brings them on loggerheads instantly.

Surbhi and Namit are able to establish their character traits crystal clear. The two seem to be getting into the groove of their characters, but the first impression definitely works. Although it will be too early to comment on their chemistry right now.

The difference in the ideology between Dr Shashank (Mohnish Bahl, a character retained from the first two seasons), and Vardhan (Rohit Roy), a rather callous man who is into complete commercialisation of medicine. While Shashank exudes hope, Vardhan is the main villain. Threading between the line of the good and the bad, the plot highlights the corruption, the massive commercialisation of the industry, a topic very relevant in today's time. 

The emotional graph of each character is made pretty apparent as well. Dr Anjali (played by Sayantani Ghosh, another character retained from DMG) and Shashank seem to have an unwavering tension between the two. While Shashank is battling health issues, Anjali's character is tilted more on the greyer area.

Shashank's entry in the show obviously brings back all the memories from the past instantly, bringing an automated smile on your face. On the other hand, the banter between Ishani and Sid makes for an entertaining plot. The makers serve a complete package of banter, corruption, politics, hope and mostly, the medical case in the first episode itself. Given that it is the third installment to a much-loved franchise, the hopes are definitely high and going by the first impression, looks like the show will yet again break Indian TV's obsessions with saas-bahu dramas and supernatural shows.
