From the twists and turns to the acting, here are the reasons that have cemented Naagin's position as telly's favourite show.

April 21, 2016 |

When the trailers of Ekta Kapoor's show Naagin started airing on Colors TV, people assumed that the new show would be nothing more than a retelling of things Bollywood had already taught us about the icchadhaari naagin--a mythical shape-shifting snake--who likes revenge, and hates snake charmers and the been. However, the television ratings and the audience response had a completely different story to tell. With season one of the show coming to an end next month, here are the reasons why the loyal fans of this supernatural series will miss the series.


Unlike the saas bahu shows that keep on beating about the bush about a small incident for a week, from the very start, the makers of Naagin ensured that the show moved at a speed that would keep the viewers hooked. From the Icchadhaari Naagin plotting her entry into Ritik's house to her revenge--with its pace, the show managed to give you the feeling of missing some vital piece of the puzzle on missing an episode.

Novel elements

As funny as the concept of an Icchadari Nevla (shape-shifting mongoose) and an Icchadari Morni (shape-shifting peahen) sounds, it can't be denied that instead of sticking to the elements Bollywood had introduced us to, the makers chose to go that extra step in order to ensure that the show is injected with a sense of freshness.

Comic touch

Between the Naagin's revenge and Yamini Singh's endless plotting to get the Naagmani, things could get a tad bit too heavy had the show not been served with a dash of comedy. From the poor jokes Ritik cracks to lighten up Shivanya's mood, Ankush Raheja's antics when he gets into the maali avatar to exaggerated scenes that show Yamini Singh jesting with the Icchadari Morni, the comic touch prevented the show from weighing the viewer down.


The show's sudden twists and turns ensure that it doesn't get boring. On one hand you have Shivanya's sister Sesha standing by her side while on the other, you have the same Sesha plotting to get Shivanya killed. Also, the makers managed to keep the name of the fifth killer under wraps for the longest time. And, who knew that it was Yamini Singh and not Ankush Raheja who was pulling all the strings, including the ones attached to her husband. How's that for some mystery?


All this couldn't have been half as good without the show's cast. While the show's protagonist Mouni Roy does a stellar job of playing the gorgeous and vulnerable Shivanya, convincingly switching to her dark, avengeful side as the Icchadhaari Naagin, one can't help but appreciate Sudha Chandran as the cold and cunning Yamini Singh or Manish Khanna as her foolish husband. Even Adaa Khan as Sesha slays with her expressions as Shivanya's hot-headed Naagin sister. And yes, our list would be incomplete without mentioning Lavina Tandon who played one of the best Kaali Maa(s) on the telly with everything including her dancing, expressions to her costume killing it!
