Pragya, Shruti

Series review:

From all feelers, it is evident that This is fate have more creative content to offer than Abhi and Pragya story. Even though the story line looks similar with the whole family conflict, rich man – poor girl love troubles, devious brides and antagonistic relatives, we can expect to get a different angle to it.

We also hope the show keep it simple and doesn’t complicate its storyline by introducing characters who are always scheming and plotting like Aliyah and Tanu from Twist of fate. Speaking on the series, the show runner Ekta Kapoor had this to say:

“…The writing for this show is extremely strong in terms of characterisation and the engaging screenplay should leave audiences hooked at the end of every episode.” –  credit.

  4. Michelle says:

    I love this is fate soo much thanks zee world

  5. Vickie says:

    Why does it take so long (in almost all the series) for evil to lose and two to three generations of people wronged (always coming back to life) to avenge themselves? Is India filled with resurrected avengers?

  6. Judith says:

    I honestly like this movie. But I dont want Preeta with Karan, he just angers me. I want her and Rishabh together😭❤

  7. Sally says:

    I really love this movie, but why Karan it would have me rishabh and preeta, I just hope the both end up together

  8. deniz riga says:

    Well i love this is fate coz of the dramma between karan and preeta..yes i agree rishab looks good with preeta…but we havent seen karan when he men’s his ways trust me his DA one for her..coz usually. Good girls like bad boys ..which turns out to be karan and preeta..thank you zeeworld

  9. Neema says:

    I really love the show alot cant miss it

  10. Nerdy says:

    Honestly, i believe you are right with the i think…….. this show has another common story line that seems very apparent with the Rich man-poor girl story line. This drama bring another pain instead which is the second male lead syndrome. Initially i also thought it would be a great refresher for out hearts with the turmoil we get from Twist of fate but it was a sad disappointment after episode 1. The first man Preeta meets will be the one she ends up with a.ka.
    Kaaran (eye roll) and of course they will butt heads then fall in love with the guy obviously changing his ways for the better. Rishabh who is sweet and gentle and is there from day 1 will be friendzoned…….of course (another eye roll) and he will wish his brother well. Honestly if it wasn’t for the great visuals and nice banter that goes one while this obvious storyline plays out………… i only hope I’m not right and this plays out so much different from this whole scenario. And let us the viewers fall in love with the simple idea of love that yes a kind gentle man doesn’t always get the friend zone but wins a trophy and not out of pity but cause he earns it cause in the end he is just a good guy that deserves some good karma in love not the corner. This twist would make it worth watching.

  11. Fatima says:

    I wish preeta shld end up rishab….in fact Dats da best thing that could happen to da movie

  12. Esme says:

    Shriti talks too much, too much, making the story borring, and why was Abhi and Pragya not invited to Preeta’s engagement? and Shritti falling in that mans hands is just too much. Preeta and Rishaab please. Karan is a Mickie Mouse.

  13. miracle says:

    Really I Want karan and preeta to be together becos karan is a smart guy he wont allow anyone to mess up with preeta whereas rishant is always doll he is always mummy boy behaving like a baby

  14. Rishab is a mind talker while karan is a sharp guy who knows how to win a woman’s heart
    Reshab’s silence is illitating and he is the most boring actor

  15. Ayaoba says:

    I hope this movie won’t be like twist of fate that has no meaning.

  16. Rosemary says:

    I hope the movie will have a good ending , not like the others that portrait the good india people like fools I hope Sherlyn and Pritvi will be punished and reshap and preata will have happy ending.

  17. Shakira says:

    It’s taking forever for sherlyn and pritvi to be exposed and it’s beginning to annoy me. Must they get away with everything?Zee world should do something realistic cos we are not babies. How can janki regain her memory and the first thing for her to do is go after those evil people instead of sharing with her family first despite know how dangerous those people can be? We are not fools

  18. tica roy says:

    Karan will later die nd preeta nd rishab will end today

  19. Georgina says:

    I heard that Karan will die is it true?

    • Admin says:

      We cannot confirm that. But it’s speculations from those who have watched ahead. Let’s just follow the timeline and see what happens.

  20. lina says:

    Prithv is a monster along wth hs so calld lovr sherlyn i jus hate them

  21. Sandra Hakaz says:

    It seems all Indian series have someone losing their memory, divided families with people scheming against each other, I just hope there is no one who looks exactly the same as the other in This is Fate. we are tired of similar stories. can’t you for once make movies where truth and good triumph over evil? we are tired of truth staying hidden. we know these bare fiction movies but for once make it look real. we all know that in real life people don’t keep secrets…especially when its bad news or there is danger I don’t see the sense of keeping it secret its so fake….please learn from western movies they are straight to the point. too much suspense makes the movie longer and boring. we are tired of heart breaking movies. for example pragya and Abby have never been happy its problem after problem. Abby is very childish the movie is like a cartoon. please!!! improve… for people who are in other parts of the world we are learning Indian culture from your movies so what you show us makes us think that’s how Indians live, big families that are divided, marriages that are never happy, cunning people with too much pride, memory loss seems to be a common illness in India, people die and come back to life, every one has an identical stranger somewhere. is this how you really live??? and in the case of Pritvi why not let preeta suffer in the hands of her husband to be than forcing her to see the truth and she keeps ignoring the truth so let her be.

  22. Mpho Moeng says:

    I dont watch twist of fate anymore because there’s always someone evil coming between Pragya and Abhi. Directors seems to be confused. The police services in all of your series are so foolish. I hope Indian police services are not as stupid as you portray them. Please dont spoil This is fate. I love it but I hate Prithvi, Sherlyn and the Congress men

  23. Star says:

    India plays/Drama are never true to life and something portray the actors/actresses as foolish. Most times there are such unrealistic scenes that makes one wonder if Indian hate to be happy. The story lines are all the same. It is very funny to see two persons with no blood relationship to be so identical. Please Indian script writers, change your pattern of writing. Like someone said too lengthy Story becomes boring.


    As much as I love Zee World, they prolong things uneccessarily, Sherlin should be exposed by now, the pregnancy thing. I really dont like the idea of promoting rvil winning, its not healthy.

  25. Tshidi says:

    Really now… Why is the a need to get good people in trouble “this is fate is starting to bore me with this Pritvie always winning noncense

  26. elain says:

    love the story,but i love sherlyn and privity to get caught,

  27. Shanaya says:

    Honesty you guys are really prolonging sherlyn and Prithvi getting caught. Making the series very boring. Like I don’t even want to watch it anymore. How can evil win for soo long. It feels like you guys don’t have a plot honestly.

  28. Juan says:

    I hate Preeta for not being intelligent enough to know the truth with enough proved

  29. mellow says:

    To be honest I think this is fate and twist of fate are very slow and annoying….. I mean why beat around the bush why are sherlyn and pritvhi always having the upper hand it isn’t fair plus everyone should have put tei and two together and should have found out the real culprits by now

  30. Dianah says:

    I’m dianah from Uganda…sincerely it getting to my nerve how those two fools pritvi & sherlyn always get away with their evil deeds..shud evil win over truth..? Its getting boring..Im loosing interest for sure…hey zee world we ain’t fools…change this story line ASAP…hey its nagging. Dear karan live long…preeter you are such a fool.

  31. Maria says:

    tell those script writers that they don’t know to write a’s shit n whoever gave ideas are very pathetic.we might be Africans but we ain’t fool’ is the writer is like Prithvi in real sense.your story doesn’t have the end of this bad guys hurting good people.they are always getting away with it.NKT boring series from Zee’s better Hollywood 10 times you.

  32. Fati says:

    Seriously this is fate is turning something different. What nonsense is this now sheylin……pritvi……disgusting stmwww

  33. Wande says:

    All Indian series are just simply stupid and annoying. This is fate inclusive. I’m done with them!

  34. Merceey says:

    Look at how this is fate has ended stupidly,its f**king boring

  35. Bee says:

    Why does evil triumphs more than evil I all your films?it is a poor representation of your culture and values. Change the story line and let good triumph more.dont continue making Indian films seem like bad people always succeed in life .you have been in the film industry for way too long and a misrepresentation of your tradition is not good for the rest of the world. And change the story line,it is always too too predictable

  36. Lena says:
