One thing I love about this Ramayan is its lovely portrayal of Urmila's character. I love how she bid Lakshman farewell with a smile and gave strength, maturity and resilience to a character not much is written about.
We do not know much about Urmila. The previous Ramayans portrayed her as a self-sacrificing woman who cried out when her husband left her, but accepted his absence as destiny. They showed her praying for Lakshman all 14-years, but no one so far has shown her encouraging
Lakshman to take vanvaas by telling him that it was his duty, and bidding him farewell with a smile. I really love the Urmila of Zee Tv's Ramayan, and if I had to choose my favorite character from this show in particular, it would be her.
I also really love her jodi with Lakshman. This couple has stayed consistent to their characters and that's something I really appreciate Sagar Pictures for. I hope they continue to show glimpses of Urmila throughout various occasions of the show.
The way Urmila was portrayed in previous two Ramayans was good, but I love the maturity shown in Urmila here even more. The previous Ramayans portrayed her as innocent and childish in nature, but here Urmila is mature and grown-up. I love all the portrayals of her so far by Sagar Arts and Sagar Pictures. I'm so proud that these production houses have given such importance to a character who was never shown in other movies or shows.
