Romeo-Juliet, Laila-Majnu, Heer-Ranjha. Why do all love stories revolve around the honeymoon phase? Why can’t there be a story that reveals the real intimacy and little things that make and break a relationship? Thanks to the Dice Media productions, there is one that is the most ‘hatke’ romantic comedy-drama series that you’ll see online.
I started watching Little Things as a mere source of passing the time. Little did I know that Little Things would come running towards me in slow motion, wrap its arms around me, and never leave. The light and crisp drama is Dhruv (Dhruv Sehgal) and Kavya’s (Mithila Palkar) love story that showcases a raw version of your story and my story.
For they say, love is in the little things
The realness of the characters and the chemistry between the couple makes it almost impossible to comprehend the fact that they are acting, and the series is fictional. There are a number of big events that take place in our lives, be it the first kiss, graduation, first job, or marriage. Little Things, on the other hand, is all about everything else that happens in our lives daily.
Every couple goes through their phases of ups and downs & highs and lows, but the question is do they fight against each other or stand together and fight against the problem. The Little Things Season 1 is about finding comfort and solace in fights over the TV remote and over surprise dinners that have been burnt to a crisp. It is about finding love in every day, in the routine, and the rut.
Some adorable moments that made us go ‘aww’ in Little Things Season 1 included when:
- Dhruv elaborates the importance of that one particular ‘bhurji pav’ in his life
- The sleepless night (thanks to the mosquitoes) turns into a long conversation between the two
- The time when Dhruv and Kavya spend the night at a Mela
Little Things Season 2: The time when differences arise
The Little Things Season 2 takes us through the low phase that every couple in a long term relationship faces. Dhruv and Kavya are compatible together, but sometimes your self-esteem can make you feel worthless. Dhruv decides to leave his typical 9 to 5 corporate job to fulfill his dream of studying further.
However, he faces a backlash from Kavya, who feels taking a reckless decision is not the way to live life. But can we really plan every second of our journey, thinking we might make a wrong turn any time? You face a lot of trouble as a couple, but some bonds are just too strong to be broken.
Comprising of a total of 8 episodes, Little Things Season 2 shows us the importance of holding on. It shows us how sometimes, some bonds are worth fighting for. In one episode, while Kavya hits it off with another man on a work trip, she even begins to question if her relationship with Dhruv was good enough for the long haul.
On visiting the vineyard they already visited earlier, Dhruv says,
“It’s good to come back to familiar places.”
Little Things Season 3: Long-distance shenanigans
Little Things Season 3, fails to be around the romcoms easy vibe and focuses more on the real-life troubles couple face. Dhruv shifts to Hyderabad to be a part of a research and to advance his career in the field of his choice. On the other hand, Kavya is left alone in Mumbai with her regular job, but the absence of Dhruv makes it difficult for her to live her life normally everyday.
As the Little Things Season 3 series progresses, both the characters, despiting holding faith in each other, start living heir lives independently by finding their happiness in things other than each other. This season portrays the importance of support, faith, and independence amongst individuals. It showcases, how as Millenials, we need to balance our career, relationship, and family while keeping ourselves as a priority.
The absence makes the heart grow fonder, and even during their tough times Dhruv and Kavya relive their ‘summer vacation’ every time they meet.
