Show Name: Saraswatichandra
Production House: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Channel and time slot: 7:30 PM on Star Plus
The much talked about show on Indian television,
' finally went on air yesterday at 7:30 pm on Star
Plus. Based on the famous novel by Govardhanram Madhavram Tripathi,
producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali
has taken over the responsibility of
putting it together in the form of a Television series. The novel set in
the 19th century has a story which revolves around two Gujarati
families but for the television adaptation Bhansali is giving a modern
twist to the story and characters.
It was well worth the wait as the look and feel of the first episode
of the show kept it's promise of a grand opening. The lavish sets which
are the norm of almost each and every serial these days do manage to
look different and have the acclaimed Bollywood director's touch to it.
Even the background music score reminds one of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
and Devdas. Not surprisingly the story of Saraswatichandra
and Kumud (Jennifer Singh Grover) too is of unrequited love.
However, since a couple of sequences were already aired during the
promos they didn't give a fresh feel when they were seen in the first
in the lead role of a Harvard return
youngster who is rooted to his core values comes up with an intense
performance and will definitely have woman fans drooling over his well
body which was wonderfully presented in his introductory scene. Jennifer
Winget looks as if she is holding back a bit but looks beautiful
nevertheless. Monica Bedi
as the step mother looks sweet as well as
vampish whenever the script demands the same. However, she does look a
bit young when seen together with her on-screen son Gautam who is almost
the same age as her in real life.
Though the first episode seemed flawless, it had a couple of
bloopers. During a continuity shot, Monica Bedi
's make-up had changed
and her bindi had disappeared. Secondly, in an opening party sequence,
's father talks about gore log in the country, we
are left wondering since when did Dubai start being referred to as the
land of gora logs?
Being a long running TV soap, it will be quite some time before we find
out if the two lead characters unite and find each other due to a twist
in the story or will it follow the course of the original text. Until
then the serial is worth a watch due to it's fast paced drama. Seema Khot Mattoo
