so the moment one hears a daily show, plus involvement of khadus/evil saas and sweet bahu (may or may not be meek) and huge conservative families, they immediately make up their minds that its a saas-bahu show...and the have plenty of previous examples to support their thoughts.. so I wouldn't say that the reaction is exactly abnormal.. 


Whether or not chanchan falls into that category remains to be seen.. the only thing that promises me that it will be otherwise is the previous work from this PH..although 'saas bina sasuraal' was a show without saas, so no danger of it turning into oneLOL men can never be as entertaining in terms of melodrama as women are LOL and only when one sees clearly through the characters in chanchan, can one see that the saas is actually NOT evil, as you have rightfully pointed out diya.. "bhagwaan sabka bhala karein, lekin shuruvaat mujhse karein".. is not just a dialogue said coz it sounds good to the ears...it is vintage umaben.. that she does care for the world, but only after her own needs and desires are satisfied... the fact that she did, inspite of everything, look for a nice groom (in her own eyes) for purvi, one of her employee's daughter, shows she does care about the people... that she tried to force it on him later on when he didn't want it to happen is another issue.. but the fact remains that she did.. plus I am sure many of the elderly women out there will definitely empathise with her...because she is doing nothing wrong in their eyes..for people who have been strongly believing in something for 50 years, suddenly changing all those ideologies and being told to do so especially by someone half their age, is not just ludicrous to their mind, but even insulting...it will take some time for them to change their mindset...and I can safely say that the day when chanchan manages to change umaben's mindset to the point that umaben reaches atleast halfway to where chanchan is..is the day this show comes to an end.. and THAT would make this show different.. rather than just beinging about different aspects of family politics, they have actually generated a hope amongst the audience that a normal girl CAN bring about a change in the society by being herself.. 

the only problem that I feel here is that right now, uma ben is tooo blackish whereas chanchan is too white-ish.. whatever chanchan does, goes therefore in the 'mahaan' category.. also I feel the dialogues praising chanchan every other minute for whatever she does can be a bit too much.. let only her deeds speak and nobody else.. but since this is just the second week and I'm sure the makers want to desperately imprint chanchan is people's minds, I'll give them the benefit of doubt.. and I'd love to see more shades of umaben..already we have some - for all her strict ideologies, she is a very sweet and loving grandmother to her grandchildren...and also an equally loving mother to her daughter..that her daughter is not the ideal daughter is another issueLOL manav is clearly the apple of her eye...can see why she agrees chanchan-manav marriage now.. 

Wonderful post mads...Agree on everything you have said... specially the blackish and whitish and the praise for Chhanchhan ... there has to be a balance struck... hope to see it soon.

Mads Hug  Good to see you here!!!

You realise you're one person who gives me competition for length of posts, right? We need Kavs to add more pithy comments on that subject WinkLOL 

Agree with pretty much everything you say ... for a show to run long, conflict has to be there ... it's either between man and woman = love story ... or between parents-children/cousins/assorted relatives = family drama or between MIL-DIL = saas bahu show. And since women form the bulk of the TV watching audience, saas bahu conflicts have always had the most takers.

 What might make this show different ... I hope Tongue ... are like you said, the makers, for one ... and the shades they put into their characters ... Uma Ben started off as very black, but slowly they are bringing more shades into her character and more layers into the family relationships than were visible earlier. Also the actors they have chosen make me optimistic ... Sanaya would not do a regular saas bahu show ... and neither would Supriya P  ... and even if both of them did, they are accomplished enough actresses to really make their characters different. Have already seen that with Sanaya ... and Supriya P - her body of work speaks for itself. The main fear was the black as coal saas and the white as snow bahu ... Uma Ben is already showing shades ... Chhanchhan so far is pretty normal, I wouldn't call her snow white bahu, because a snow white bahu does not fight with boys ... she covers her head with pallu and sharmaos LOL The interesting part will be to see how she manages after marriage ... and that is where the makers' previous show gives me hope ... their previous bahu was not preachy or mahaan, she was very normal and sensible. Unfortunately sensible girls have very few takers ... let's see how this goes Tongue

Same question as Ash ... do you follow the show in Hindi or do you get subtitles?

Exactly! But unfortunately if a show has a saas and a bahu at loggerheads, it is automatically labelled saas bahu drama ... even if it not about kitchen politics.


@Naz_nisar ... thanks! Big smile

Soo true! They have surely taken a filmy way of promoting their ideas! What better can be to portray a mil who is lagging behind the urban world and a super modern thinking bahu to gain viewership! But ppl just don't seem to get the point and brag that it is saas bahu saga!!!!!!!!!!!!
