The best on-screen couples are those who have the most appealing stories to tell. These on-screen couples might not always have the ideal tracks but they make you root for them nevertheless. These are those characters that keep you involved and looking forward to more. Their stories are realistic which makes it easier for the viewers to relate to them. Sometimes on-screen chemistry can do wonders and make even the most clichéd love stories desirable.
Thankfully, in 2020, we got to watch quite a few love stories that were unconventional and appealing. In order for an on-screen couple to leave a lasting impression, it is also really important that their love stories stay engaging right till the end. Sometimes certain on-screen couples win the viewers over in the first few weeks but they fail to keep the interest of the viewers alive right till the end. There are also those on-screen couples that gradually grow on the viewers and within a few weeks, the viewers find themselves looking forward to their scenes. There are others who have tragic love stories which makes them even more impactful.
Out of all the dramas we watched in 2020, the following on-screen couples appealed to us more than others.
Danish and Mehwish (Mere Pass Tum Ho)
Some people might find it strange that Danish and Mehwish who had the most unsettling and tragic story are in this list but in our opinion, this list would be incomplete without them. If it wasn’t for Danish and Mehwish, Mere Pass Tum Ho wouldn’t have been such a huge hit. The relationship these two characters shared and their respective personalities were outlined well right from the start. Mehwish’s unfaithfulness and Danish’s undying love for her was the main theme of the story which kept the viewers coming back for more. These central characters made Mere Pass Tum Ho what it was and all the other characters were simply passing through their lives.
It was Danish’s love for Mehwish that made the viewers fall in love with his character and it was Mehwish’s betrayal that made the viewers hate her character. Ayeza Khan and Humayun Saeed played their respective roles faultlessly. They made the viewers feel everything their characters went through right till the end. This was the kind of love story which showed the other side of the picture. The viewers for a change got to watch what a man goes through when he is betrayed. Although Mere Pass Tum Ho’s end and Danish’s death was the worst thing we saw on television this year but overall Danish and Mehwish together definitely gave the viewers an unforgettable few weeks of emotional drama.
