I have watched this show up till September (still catching up with episodes) and am very impressed with the writing team. They've done a lot of work in developing these characters. Rarely do I find a drama where all the character have strong story lines. Moreover, the show is not about romance but a true exploration on growing up. I have rarely seen a drama on Indian television so well thought out and written and giving such inspiration and strength to our Indian girls. So many shows have young women remain silent, passive and victims of abuse as if doing so is going to reap good rewards in the future. Instead this show encourages women to speak up and "go for it."
The show eloquently highlights the struggles of young Indian girls in accomplishing their needs whether it be Rachna's desire to go to school or play hockey or Chaya's desire to wear a pair of jeans. I hope that the writers give her a storyline of her own too - even though she is a supporting character.
The family dynamics are also well thought out. The show is NOT about two sister--in-laws conspiring episode after episode but does sprinkle some of these elements without turning this into a disaster of a show.
And the show also includes an excellent storyline of Mayank, a young man conflicted with the coping with the impeding doom of a marriage he didn't want and the love of a young girl whom he admires, respects and loves.
Most Indian shows die after 3-months but this one is still doing well. My hats off to the writers, the production team etc. This show truly offers me the hope that there are excellent writers still left in India who are allowed to grow and flourish. My hats off also to an excellent acting team who have signed up for this show - I hope this show continues to give us good episodes and does not fall pray to the garbage we have been fed over the past years by Zee and other television stations.
