‘Love can make you, but it can also break you!’ Heard this before? Sidharth Shukla and Sonia Rathee starrer Broken But Beautiful 3 brings this to life. Sidharth Shukla makes his OTT debut as Agastya Rao, an ambitious director who believes in bringing out the rawness in a person. Agastya is volatile, arty, and brash. Paired opposite him is Sonia Rathee aka Rumi Desai, a young girl from a rich family. She’s obsessed with two things – her childhood crush Ishaan (played by Ehan Bhatt) and the urge to be seen in her distinction family.
Both, Agastya and Rumi are flawed in their own ways. But, instead of facing their fears, they believe in escaping them. Unlike other usual love stories, Agastya and Rumi rather have an exasperating start. But, attraction is enough to ignite the fire, and a ‘no strings attached’ relationship kicks off. Will two ‘broken’ individuals be able to make a happy space for themselves? Or will one try to fix another and get destroyed? Broken But Beautiful 3 brings to you the heart-touching story of Agastya and Rumi’s ‘broken but beautiful’ love story.
To ‘feel the love and pain’ of Agastya and Rumi’s relationship, you will have to watch the show. But, speaking of the Sidharth Shukla and Sonia Rathee’s performances, you’re going to be left spellbound. Sidharth is as charismatic, magical and believable as you expect him to be. Sonia as Rumi plays her part to the T. You also get to see some eye-catching performances by Ehan Bhatt and Jahnavi Dhanrajgir.

The screenplay is good, but nothing’s original to make you go ‘WOW. The song again is a reminiscence of the first two seasons, taking forward the legacy but with a new jodi, we hoped to see a freshness to their relationship as well. The entire idea of a guy and girl broken within coming together to find solace in each other is worth exploring and is amazingly done but what we missed is nuances and newness to the arc.
