Dil Bole Oberoi is a first of its kind attempt for Indian Television. The popularity of Ishqbaaz gave birth to the what is being termed as an offspring of the original show. Dil Bole Oberoi retains the essence of Ishqbaaz. Whether it is the lavishness or distinct personality being given to the characters, there are a lot of similarities to Ishqbaaz. The swag meter is high on the show. It has started off with the tale of Omkara (Kunal Jaisingh) and Gauri Kumari Sharma (Shrenu Parikh) in the rural town of Bareilly. It is a unique effort by the channel and let is look at what happened on episode one.
Shivaay (Nakuul Mehta) sends Om (Kunal Jaisingh) to acquire land from Kali Thakur (Rahul Dev). There he dashes against Gauri. Anika (Surbhi Chandna) calls up and the two ladies have a conversation. Kali Thakur’s wife Janhavi is distressed at his decision to marry twice. Om manages to get the land. Gauri’s step-mom meets with an accident and she needs money to meet the treatment costs. She comes to know that she has to vacate the land where her home is.
What is hot…
Kunal Jaisingh steals the show with his swag and performance. Shivaay Singh Oberoi might get tough competition now in the swag department. The scene where he gets emotional knowing that the Thakurain’s name is Janhavi is superb. Kunal keeps it subtle and real. Rahul Dev gives a lot of flair to the part of Kali Thakur. Shrenu Parikh has likeability but the rather cliched aspects of her role take away some of the sheen. The production is a lavish one. Though she is a village gal, Shrenu aka Gauri wears salwar suits with cold shoulders with deep backs that would make normal rural girls go haw!
What is not…
The similarities to Ishqbaaz are too many. Like Anika, Gauri too has a brotherly companion. Om’s character if the precap is go by, is turning out to be another SSO. And it is tough to believe that Gauri is really poor! We have to see what fresh elements the makers bring in on Dil Bole Oberoi.

Dil Bole Oberoi looks promising especially for fans of Kunal Jaisingh. The actor delivers and how! Given the scale, it is a worthy spin-off. Ishqbaaz took some time before it caught on with the viewers. DBO seems will also take its time to capture the dil of the audience.
