  1. Once again one of Ekta Kapoors useless soapie. She seems to love killing the main characters in her soapie. Leaving the spouse alone.

  2. Mtshewwwwwww, what is the essence of this story when raghav wuld still die.there is no point for me to continue keeping up late at night to watch it. Nonsense.

  3. Love this soapie and again it has a sad ending. Please bring Rahhav in season 2 , I mean he can’t just die like that without him and Naina to enjoy everything that Naina sacrificed for. Please! Lots of love from Zambia.

  4. This movie is useless without raghav why did you kill raghav at first the story line was super and the end of the story is boring like l don’t no why did you kill the actor actor sapose not to die

  5. I better stop watching this sopie also. It look like all indian love story end with death not victory. So shocking, why Naina and Raghavan has to find each other when one has died. Director, direct well and don’t give people wrong impression of love. If you struggle at first in love you must end up being happy couple. Why do you portray love as something painful till death and those who need love will never find and enjoy it.

  6. Why Raghav had to die thou, I was so eagerly waiting for their love story to begin🙄please bring him back in season2 to refresh his love story, it hasn’t even started bt now he will soon along d way die n dt too be killed🤔🙄🙄such a bore😏

  7. I really love this story but the ending is not okay Raghav n Naina should be together as they are the main actors of this story please bring Raghav to Naina

  8. I’m sure raghav will be back in season 2. He needs to know what Naina really sacrificed for him. He doesn’t deserve to die, the film is useless without him ahswr.please bring him back

  9. I have never seen a soap that the main character dies their is always struggle in the soap with main character but at the end their is success who wrote thz soap shld rectify

  10. Am sorry to say but the person that directed chasing my heart did not write the story very well, why Did raghav die and now naina is getting married to reehan the name of the movie is supposed to be misunderstanding not chasing my heart. All the Indian movie have their own problems if not memory lost its look alike and if not that it’s reborn and if not reborn it’s death and if not that it’s a long lost brother or sister and if not that then the people he grew up with are not his biological parents. Chasing my heart, lies of the heart, king of heart, twist of fate, this is fate, Mehek , ganga, laali, my golden home, my lost home, love happens, the vow , strange love, forbidden love, forever yours, destiny, divine relationships, modern home maker, reach for the stars, east meet west, deception, iron lady, sands of time, young dreams, and many more they all are complicated if not look alike then it’s memory lost and if not that it’s reborn and if not reborn it’s death and if not that it’s having a long lost brother or sister or not the biological child of the people that raised him. If a movie is getting interesting then a new character comes in or a new problem . In chasing my heart when raghav is supposed to found out about the sacrifices naina made for him he didn’t and now that she has given birth raghav doesn’t want to believe her .what is the sacrifices for now that raghav Is dead and am sure when he comes back he will think that naina betrayed him. Please directors ,scrip writers, stop spoiling movies for us please because if it continues nobody will want to watch Indian movies again ,am a very big fan of India movies but when the movie is getting interesting then they will just spoil it by saying the hero and heroine are dead and in twenty years later they are reborn or their look alike will appear please stop ruining movies for everyone.

    • I DNT like the conclusion of this movie:
      Why did Raghav have to dead without not knowing the truth of the pregnancy. At least he shld posses to know the reason why Naina sacrifices is life for him.

  11. What can one say about Indian series, of the many I have tried to watch, only Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya… (Laali) and Zindagi ki Crossroads makes sense. Other serials only succeed in painting their country as evil, their idol gods as weak and defenseless. Even when people are said to have died, they come back to life reborn, to suffer worse fate, that Divya series, The Vow, Zindagi ki Mehek etc. The writers of Indian series, the ones we have watched so far, are so sadistic and pathetic that I consider spending time on these series as a waste of time. I only watch if it comes recommended from someone who has watched and seen its worth. The most annoying is that Kum Kum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya, useless and time wasting enterprise.

  12. I had stopped watching telenovelas but this soap made me watch them again.I am so disappointed abt Ragav’s death .I don’t feel like watching Indian movies again because most of their endings are nt good.this soap was wow bt the end just ruined everything.

  13. Y’all that are saying that you regret watching chasing my heart you should know that every soap opera or movie is not meant to have a happy ending it’s just a dose of reality everybody is gonna die one day maybe this is the message the producers are trying to send and y’know that this movie is based on a book called “immigrants”

  14. Comment: I have never used to watch Indian movies bcoz i considered it to be too long I don’t have time to watch them to the end, but my wife lured/ drew my intention to watch CHASING MY HEART and I grew love and interest in the movie.
    But unfortunately my best actor in the movie Raghave is dead so the movie has become boring for me to continue watching.
    Plz Director, I subscribe to the many thought of others to bring back Raghav in season two which i knw u can as a director to draw many attention again for d movie.

    I am a Director, Script Writer and Actor from Sierra Leone.

  15. Please incase you make season 2 of the story please bring Ragav back to life, as naina said in the end that her story is not complete

  16. But people be serious why make us love a movie if u can’t keep the flow……why would you kill raghav …….am very disappointed in u and hence forth am nolonger watching it

  17. While did Raghav have to die it made the movie boring although I hope he is back in season2 also the ending is very bad talking about Naina a widow teaching to her stud my about true love what about the son ………….. Pls season 2 should be better than season1 and also brin back the lovebird and add live back to the story

  18. Interesting story bt we need another season. Raghav cannot just die. I think ahaan sgould grow up with Reehans face since he is rehaans son
