Plot

Janhvi is the respected and accomplished daughter-in-law of the Mittal family. Loved by everyone, her decisions are always respected. But Janhvi has a secret vengeance towards the family. PK's younger son, Kabir Mittal is an army officer who returns home after six years.

It is revealed that Janhvi is actually Pooja Sharma, daughter of Dr. Ashok Sharma. Twenty years ago, PK had framed Ashok and burned down the Sharma house. Ashok had managed to flee Pooja and Rani but was unable to save himself. Thus, it had become Pooja's aim in life to avenge her father's death and family's destruction.

Eventually, Pooja is successful in destroying the Mittals. She reveals to the Mittal family that she was neither Dhruv's wife nor their daughter-in-law as this was all a hoax to take revenge. Pooja takes over the Mittal house, leaving them homeless.

Thus, starts a cold war between Pooja and Kabir. Kabir kidnaps Pooja's mother and asks Pooja to marry him in order to save her mother's life. Helpless, Pooja agrees and the two get married. Slowly, the two see each other's good side thus softening towards one another. Hesitant at first, they later accept having fallen in love with each other. Rani turns vengeful towards Pooja, unable to accept Kabir with someone else. Eventually, Pooja and Kabir clear through all the plotting and misunderstandings and unite forever.

Reception

Times Now said, “While it’s very clear in the first episode itself how twisted Jhanvi is, makers keep the intrigue alive with her character. While Shrenu keeps the intrigue alive with her antics in the show, Zain’s character, Kabir, also manages to add to all the drama right before the episode ends.”[3]

Bollywood Life said, “Veterans like Ayub Khan and Parikshit Sahani bring out a classy performance and Shrenu Parikh matches them well proving that she knows her craft well. The lavish sets lend to the neat storytelling which takes off from establishing each character for what they are, to showing the central character's relationship with each one of them. Shrenu is fantastic with her transitions in expressions.”[4]

India Today said, “Shrenu Parikh is quite convincing as Jhanvi, who can deceive anyone with her perfect bahu act. Ayub Khan fits well into the role of a strict head of the family. Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna looks promising and will keep the viewers hooked with its interesting twists and turns.”[5]

Production

“I had to push myself to convince that I am going to play a grey character. It’s not totally a negative character. This character was very challenging and I wanted to do something different from the roles I have portrayed previously.”

The show was launched in a 1000-year-old heritage called Saas–Bahu temple located in Udaipur, Rajasthan.[7]

In June 2019, the show went through a revamp in its storyline to increase the ratings due to which actors Ayub Khan and Tanvi Dogra who played PK Mittal and Kavya Mittal had to exit the show.[8]
