I loved how Mona and Abram’s story starts and progresses in part 1 & 2. It is passionate, intense, sweet and full of feels. Their story concludes in part 3 that’s Time.
Simply put it is a love story where the lead characters are Rockstar and Scientist, beauty and brains, the trope Penny infuses with some kick ass smarts, humour and swoon.
Mona is a physicist (something like Sheldon Cooper from the popular The Big Bang Theory) , Abram is our Rockstar. In parts 1& 2 they get to know and fall for each other. In part 3, we see how they make their relationship work.
After a great start to their relationship I had some expectations from how their story progresses and concludes. It was pretty hot and satisfying to an extent. However at one point it felt just like another long distance relationship which was frustrating and a bit underwhelming. I wanted more, something unexpected for them.
If you love and occasionally hate Sheldon Cooper’s character in the Big Bang Theory, you will enjoy Mona’s character. She will give you all the reasons to like her, love her and much more.
Abram is good looking, sensitive and very vulnerable at places. I’d have loved to see him as more assertive, more alpha like. He is very accommodating and considerate of Mona’s feelings. But in all of it it felt like a piece of him missing, I wanted more of him like we got of Mona.
Overall, the conclusion is a bit underwhelming and disappointing. But I guess that’s how smart people relationships feel. I’d have happily given the series a 5 * rating, but it gets a 4.
