Dekha Ek Khwaab starts with the protagonist Muniya (Priyal Gor) enjoying the Mumbai rains. She is a simple down to earth girl who wishes for her own princess story. Little does she know that she just might get that chance, thanks to Rajmata Mrinalini Devi and Maharaj Brijraj Singh. Aruna Irani and Shahbaaz Khan are tailor-made for their roles of royalty. Yet, the show started on a slow note without any punch making it a rather dull affair. So much so that even the entry of Abhishak Rawat's Akash fell flat. The initial episode itself hints that Muniya's life is not exactly as it's made out to be and she has a connection to royalty. But what bored us was the fact that in spite of being an outspoken and loud character, Muniya is blissfully ignorant of the outside world. Her doting father advises her to not venture outdoors but doesn't give any explanations. Muniya's characterisation shows conflicting attributes and she comes across as fake. Her supposedly polar opposite is the Rajmata's granddaughter, Jaynandini aka J – a snobbish and arrogant girl who has just stepped into adulthood. The actor goes overboard with her character and requires extensive training in dialogue delivery. On the whole, the serial doesn't seem to offer anything unique or interesting. While the makers scream on top of their voices that the story is different, we seem to have a hard time believing it. If Sony head honchos really expected to retain the high TRPs they got thanks to Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati 5 with this show, they are going to be sorely disappointed.
"Dekha Ek Khwaab" is not inspired by 2001 Hollywood movie " The Princess Diaries", said the producer of the show, adding that the original concept will not appeal to the Indian audience.
"The show is not at all inspired by 'The Princess Diaries'. I wish we could do that but I don't think that would have appealed to Indian people. 'The Princess Diaries' was just a concept and showed the transformation of a simple girl into a princess. But in India, audience needs lots of character-based roles and many other things that supports the concept. This is what we have tried to present through 'Dekha Ek Khwaab'," producer Shristhi told IANS.
"Dekha Ek Khwaab", directed by Anil V. Kumar, will go on air on Sony Nov 21. It will start once "Kaun Banega Crorepati 5" is wrapped up.
"Dekha Ek Khwaab" is the story of an ordinary girl called Monia, played by Priyal Gor, whose suddenly finds herself becoming the princess of a royal family of Devgarh.
Aroona Irani, who is playing Rajmata Mrinalini Devi in it, finds the show different from regular Saas-Bahu soaps.
"In the past few years, I have done roles which were more vampish and negative but this role has so many edges that I was not able to say no. I loved the way Mrinalini Devi portrays elegance, charm and glamour without being overboard," Irani told IANS.
The show will see Shahbaaz Khan, best known for his role in " Tipu Sultan", after a gap.
"I think there are many things in 'Dekha Ek Khwaab', which makes it different from other shows. From channel to production and team, everyone gave their best to make it a successful and must-watch show and this is what will make it different from other prevailing shows," he said.
