ALTBalaji’s latest offering Boken But Beautiful stars Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi in the lead roles. The series is a romantic drama that deals with the pain of lost love and the necessity and the importance of letting go and finding a new one. Vikrant plays Veer who is still hung up on his love for his dead wife whereas Harleen plays Sameera who is vying for the love and affection of an ex-boyfriend.
Vikrant and Harleen play two completely shattered souls who find love, solace and peace in one another. In one of the episodes, Vikrant says, “It seriously felt nice to know that someone is as f***ed up and as broken like me.” Another gem that he shoots as Harleen is that one should not love someone too much that it takes the shape of an obsession. The series tells us that the way a broken heart can be mended is through pieces of another heart which is as damaged as the other one.

On the other hand, Vikrant who is grappling with his wife’s death is unable to form any sort of meaningful attachment with any other woman as he is still hung up on her and talks to his dead wife. He even says that he prefers being called a crazy man who still talks to his dead wife rather than a normal man who has overcome the grief. However, he starts to have feelings for Harleen as he feels she is similarly broken like him. The two are stuck in time but they soon find completeness in each other’s pain and in the journey eventually falls in love.
