It’s a series of cute snapshots of love

Aani Kay Hava sweetly tells you what you already know about relationships. It’s not just the grand gestures that matter, it’s the small things. Like taking care of someone when the person is unwell, cracking lame jokes at your partner’s expense, knowing he won’t be offended, making compromises. Saket and Jui, who have been married for three years since season one aired, express their love for each other daily through such small gestures. Whether it’s fostering a friend’s dog, dealing with a bout of flu, being scared witless by ghost stories or planning a baby, the couple weather it all with love and empathy. The storytelling is simple and the writing is funny and flows easily.

Umesh Kamat and Priya Bapat share crackling chemistry

One of the chief reasons Kamat and Bapat are so watchable is that they have incredible chemistry. It’s no wonder they’re so comfortable with each other – they’re married in real-life. They’re also natural performers. Their Saket and Jui are in love, yes, but they’re also good friends, as is evident in the way they constantly rib each other.

THE UPSHOT
Aani Kay Hava is a charming slice-of-life look at marriage starring real-life couple Umesh Kamat and Priya Bapat.
