Behind the scenes
Priyanka Ghose’s deft handling of the series is the major plus despite some cliché ridden sequences and slow pace during the concluding episodes. The way she elevated the characters of Sidharth and Sonia by effective narrative was a delight to watch.
Another most important aspect of this third season is the soul stirring songs that assume significant part of the whole series. Akhil Sachdeva’s ‘Mere Liya’ and ‘Tere Naal’ to the most brilliant ‘Kya Kiya Tuney’ by the inimitable Armaan Mallik, Amaal Mallik, and Palak Muchchal steal the entire show. Broken But Beautiful Season 3 was nothing without the contributions of Akhil, Amaal and Armaan.
Broken But Beautiful is an emotional love drama that tugs at the heart. It got everything, love, lust, obsession, possessiveness and self destruction with which love is made of and its really awesome to see all these features getting unfolded in this series which was watchable albeit some drawbacks. The performances of Sidharth and Sonia stand apart in this love saga that was a clear winner among all modern love stories.
