As we enter into the last week of year 2013, SET is gearing up for a brand new year by launching two new shows. SONY channel recently launched Main Naa Bhoolungi produced by Beyond Dreams and Kinnari Mehta's Ek Nayi Pehchan. These two shows started with a bang on 23rd December at 8 pm and 8.30 pm respectively.
Both the shows deserve a huge round of applause for their fresh concept on TV. Let me talk about Main Naa Bhoolungi first. So, Sony TV's very own bahu Toasty' aka Aishwarya Sakhuja is playing the main lead Shikha', she dons a geeky look which is very cute. Shikha is an associate editor of a women oriented magazine. The episode starts with Shikha falling in a river pool. She is taking her last breadth. The story revolves around her life narrated by none other than Sakshi Tanwar.
The story is shown in a flashback where we see Shikha's happy family and a bubbly, confident Shikha who is full of new dreams and aspirations. The twist comes when someone is shown following her and finally the episode freezes when a family comes to ask her hand for marriage. Overall, the entire episode was very well written and directed. The entire concept of the show revolves around Shikha and her husband Sameer, played by Vikas Manaktala, who get married.
It is a thriller which will show the journey of Shikha Gupta who will fall in love with Sameer after marriage by realizing how caring he is. She would live in a fairytale when suddenly she will discover the truth about her husband! Her dreams will get shattered when she encounters different layers of Sameer. She will feel cheated and becomes a victim of her beloved husband who would want to kill her.
No doubt the story line is interesting but somehow it is reminding us of Life OK's very popular show Saubhagyavati Bhav' wherein Karanvir Bohra played the role of a psychopath husband who tortured his wife.
Well, let's see how Main Naa Bhoolungi unfolds its plot in coming days, it will surely be an eye opener for the audiences about the atrocities a woman faces by her own family members. iDubba gives 4/5 stars to this show.

Ek Nayi Pehchan definitely strikes out from the rest of the daily soaps airing on the telly tube. The biggest factor for the show is its two leading ladies. This show embarks a new journey of yesteryear Bollywood actress Poonam Dhillon on small screen. This show boasts of exploring the relationship of a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law in a new way.
The concept of the show is very clear from its first episode. Both of them will become friends who will stand for each other in difficult situations in life. There would be no high melodrama but practical lessons from life which saas and bahu will learn from their experiences.
First episode established all the characters- Sooraj Thapar who is Poonam Dhillon aka Sharda's husband is a big businessman, he got rags to riches kind of a success. He is strict and is sometimes embarrassed by her wife's illiteracy. Though he believes in women empowerment, he doesn't like his wife to ask silly questions.
Sharda is humiliated and often insulted by her own children in the house. She is the backbone of the family yet no one realizes her importance. She is not even shown her future daughter-in-law's photo. Yet she is excited to see her son get married. On the other hand, the main lead of the show Krystal D'Souza meets Sharda on railway station and helps her out without making fun of her.
The show looks promising with little inspiration from the movie English Vinglish,' but it is officially adapted from a popular Gujarati Play "Sharda,' scripted by Varsha Adalia. The story will revolve around Sharda and her newly wed daughter-in-law Sakshi who will educated her hence uplifting Sharda's low self-esteem. In return, Sharda will guide Sakshi by sharing her experiences and tips to make her family happy and united.
