Bepannah (Translation: Endless) is a romantic mystery drama show that aired on Colors TV. It premiered on 19 March 2018 and was produced by Cinevistaas Limited. It starred Harshad Chopda and Jennifer Winget.[1][2]

Plot[edit]

Aditya Hooda and Zoya Siddiqui are two individuals brought together through their spouses' betrayal.

Aditya and Zoya's spouses Pooja and Yash are found dead together in a road accident. They discover that the two were having an affair. Aditya channels his grief into anger while Zoya goes into denial. She takes over Yash's company and Aditya declares himself her partner after learning Pooja had invested his money into the company.

Aditya and Zoya receive divorce papers from their spouses that reach them late. Unable to run from the truth anymore, Zoya attempts suicide but is saved by Aditya. As the two bond, a mysterious CBI inspector named Rajveer Khanna enters their lives with a relentless hunger to put them behind bars. He believes that they are guilty for the murder of their spouses and frames the two as such. Having grown to trust one another, Aditya and Zoya go on the run to prove their innocence.

Aditya's father, Harshvardhan Hooda who is a top lawyer, proves them innocent. Zoya reads Pooja's diary and breaks down, learning about the fact that Pooja was pregnant with Yash's child. Reeling from the revelations and unable to understand how to react, Aditya reads Pooja's diary trying to understand her side of the story. Broken but resolute, Aditya and Zoya decide to move on from their past. Together, they forgive Yash and Pooja. Aditya leaves for Paris, wanting time to reflect on himself, while Zoya focuses on reviving her bankrupt company.

Six months later[edit]

Zoya is a successful entrepreneur; Aditya remains in Paris. Sakshi is being held hostage by Anjana. Zoya supports Noor and Arjun when she comes to know about their love for each other. After Aditya returns home, he finds Zoya a more confident and assertive person while he himself has become quieter. Their friendship blooms as they begin spending time together. Aditya feels new emotions arising in his heart for Zoya. He realizes that he has fallen in love with her.

When Aditya decides to confess to Zoya, he comes to know about Waseem trying to set her up with Arshad Habib, his friend's son. Jealousy hits Aditya as he sees Arshad and Zoya spending time together. Meanwhile, Sakshi is aware that it was Anjana who had murdered Pooja and Yash and warns her of the fact. In fear of getting exposed, Anjana pushes Sakshi off a cliff. Meanwhile, differences arise between Arjun and Noor. Aditya confesses his love to Zoya due to which she misunderstands him. Amidst the confusion, Zoya agrees to marry Arshad.

Aditya confronts Zoya and asks her to listen to her heart and accept her true feelings but she remains obstinate. His words continue to linger in her mind as the ceremonies take place. She tries faking a smile but realizes that she is genuinely not happy. On the wedding day, Zoya reminisces her moments with Aditya. She accepts having feelings for Aditya due to which Waseem breaks ties with her. Aditya proposes Zoya and they get married, the two promising to always love, trust and stand by each other.

Zoya gets anonymous messages and calls, threatening her. The blackmailer is revealed to be Rajveer's grandmother. She brings out the truth about Rajveer being Aditya and Arjun's half brother and reveals the story about Harshvardhan's past wherein he was with her daughter Pallavi. Pallavi was pregnant with Rajveer but Harshvardhan, unaware about it, had married Anjana. Heartbroken, Pallavi had committed suicide. Everyone is shocked on learning the truth. Rajveer and his grandmother kill Harshvardhan to avenge Pallavi's death and frame Aditya. Aditya is thus found unconscious near Harshvardhan's body, holding the knife smeared with blood. Anjana goes in shock and Arjun leaves the house. Rajveer causes misunderstandings between Aditya and Zoya. The two, broken and helpless, go their separate ways.

One year later[edit]

Aditya has taken over Harshvardhan's law firm, Hooda and Associates. Anjana is mentally unstable and kept under supervision. Zoya having studied clinical psychology, gets an internship in the same hospital Anjana is admitted in. Aditya and Zoya still miss each other and reminisce the love they shared. Noor bumps into Arjun in Delhi. Despite trying to resist one another, they come close again. Meanwhile, Aditya and Zoya come face to face. They try to ignore their feelings and act cold towards each other.

Unable to control his emotions anymore, Aditya asks for Zoya's forgiveness. Arjun reaches Mussoorie and confesses his love for Noor. Anjana recalls everything and owns up about killing Pooja, Yash and Sakshi. She asks Aditya and Zoya to forgive her and gets arrested. Aditya breaks down in disbelief. Zoya comforts him and the two embrace each other. Arjun and Noor get married and the show ends on a happy note with Aditya, Zoya, Arjun, Noor, Roshnaq and Waseem posing for a family photograph.

Development[edit]

“I am returning to television after a hiatus and I was consciously waiting to pick the right story. Bepannaah’s core concept was the major influence in this case; Jennifer and I hit off as soon as we met. I’m sure it will be exciting for the audience to see us together onscreen.”

“The first time I heard the narration for the show, I had tears in my eyes; a show like Bepannaah comes your way rarely and I am ecstatic to be a part of it.”

The show was first named Adhura Alvida but was later renamed Bepannaah.[25]

Filming[edit]

Bepannaah was mainly shot in Cinevistaas Studios, Mumbai but the opening sequences were filmed in Mussoorie.[26]
