Fanaah, the MTV's new Vampire show starring Karan Kundra, Rithvik Dhanjani, Anita Hassanandani, Ratan Rajput and Chetna Pande started with an interesting plot and tantalizing characters. The cinematography and music captures ones interest and leaves you craving for more.
The story begins what seems like a fight for love between Vivaan (Karan) and Vidhyut (Rithvik) for Avni (Chetna). Vivaan is of course the vampire, Vidhyut the werewolf and Avni the human.
Though one might get an inkling of disappointment with the love triangle (which is oh-so predictable), the other characters, like Iravati (Ratan) and Preet (Anita) would present the angles that promise suspense and an interesting thriller.
Establishing characters was quite impressive when coming to the supportive characters but the lead characters were left hanging with just a scene. For all the Karan Kundra fans, the episode must have left them wanting more of the vampire action from the handsome lad.
Positives: Characters, actors, story, music, cinematography are most definitely the high points of the show. The story has full potential to keep the show interesting if the first episode is what it's going to be like.
Negatives: The Hollywood versions of the show are definitely going to be compared with the special effects part of the show. Though the show's first episode shows full potential to be a complete show on it's own, the comparison is sure going to leave the desi version of vampire-love-story struggle to keep up.
