This popular Ekta Kapoor show has to top the list and is a tale of boundless love. But, do you know it’s a copy of Wuthering Heights, which is a story of a servant boy falling in love with the master’s daughter. (Akshata Shetty in India)
The show started out on a great note, with a good enough plot of a servant's son falling for the master's daughter. It even had fresh faces debuting in the show, and there was a positive vibe to it. It's copied from the foreign TV show called Wuthering Heights, which has the same plot. But after a few months, the Indian version really lost its plot and went into a totally different zone where the couple marries, then separates, then patches up and what not! Sadly, it's not working out for the viewers. (Shobhita Dutta in Indian Times)
"Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi" is somewhat a watered down adaptation of Emily Brontë's "Wuthering Heights".
Shakti Arora's Ranveer mildly designed around Heathcliff, who does all in his might to earn the love of his master's daughter, Catherine Earnshaw.
Although, their plots twists and themes keep changing with every leap the makers take, the similarity cannot go unnoticed. (Prarthna Sarkar in International Business Times)
