Qubool Hai is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list The Best Indian Soap Opera TV Shows
ANUBHOOTI added QUBOOL HAI Karan Singh Grover , Surbhi Jyoti, Vikrant Massey -

Qubool Hain is a Muslim Social Drama in the "Rom Com" zone.

It is the story of two families related by blood and yet distanced by circumstances. It is the story of two brothers Ayaan and Asad who are separated by their families but are united in their hearts.

It is also the story of Zoya, a girl who starts by hating the culture of hypocrisy in joint families and eventually ends up bringing together the two warring families. 

The journey of the Khan family is seen through the eyes of our three protagonists…Zoya the young, spunky and progressive NRI, Ayaan the charming boy who falls for every beautiful face and Asad the man with the angst who eventually learns to love.

The show begins at the point where Zoya runs away from a marriage that was being forced on her and a twist of fate makes her get married to Ayaan instead.

Zoya enters the traditional, orthodox home of Ayaan…just the kind of family she distrusts and questions.

She is a total misfit in the conservative home that is run by the super orthodox doyen of the family. And as is to be expected it leads to immediate disaster.

A lot of squabbles ensue, especially between Ayaan and Zoya… and neither realize when they end up falling in love.

In the meanwhile, Asad is engaged to a very traditional conservative girl. Asad though not quite in love with her, respects her immensely for her devout ways and is beginning to see a life with her.

However, like fate usually does, things take a turn. Ayaan's temporary marriage to Zoya gets dissolved and Zoya finds out that Ayaan was responsible for it.

And here, Asad finds out that his pious to be bride is a complete liar and was taking him for a ride all along.

And now begins the next chapter of the story…. with Ayaan wanting to win back Zoya with whom he has totally fallen in love with and Asad vowing to never ever love again.

Ayaan realizes that the only way he can win back Zoya is with the help of Asad. But Asad hates women and more so women like Zoya. So what will unfold now between the two brothers and Zoya?
