Nanhe nanhe se hathon main gudiya purani..
Kismat toh jais inke koi ruthi nani..
Kiska ka sapna hai jeevan kiska jeevan hai uttran..
Kiske ke utare sapnon se saje kiska bachpan..
Woh nahin samjhe abhi kya hoti hai uttran
A renaissance in television shows and viewing!
Story: Uttaran is the story of a girl named Ichcha who is born in the slums of Mumbai and desires much more than what her destiny has in store for her. Ichcha has big dreams and aspirations – to fulfill these and to provide her with a better livelihood, her mother takes up a job of a maid at a rich household. What awaits her there is for us to see and experience.
Actors: All the actors involved are doing a great job as they suit their roles to the T. Iccha the girl is very sweet and an actor far more matured than her age, and does everything very diligently. Well, one could see the influence of Darsheel Safari of Taare Zameen Par while selecting Ichcha. The fabuolus dialogue delivery of the girl can give any seasoned TV actor a run for their money. All the kids are doing their job fantastically well. There is a very thin line between commercial success and creative satisfaction. This show is a fine example as how to maintain the equilibrium and then ride on the success .Vaishali Thakkar in the role of Damini is doing her part marvelously well too. The pain in her eyes to meet up with her daughter's demands is vividly seen in her eyes. They both want to make their kismat or destiny in this world with innocence and hard work.
Writers and Creatives are very smart and intelligent. They know now that the audience wants something different and they are capitalizing on this. After the saas bahu sagas and the never-ending reality shows, Uttaran is going to set a new bench mark and new heights to conquer.
Set and Ambience: Fabulous is the word for everything associated with this show, from the small hut of Ichcha and her mother to the wire which they use as lock, the bed, pillow cover with patch over it etc. Sewing machine and the other little things found in the house seem very realisitic. However, there is a small confusion about the exterior of Jogi Thakur hawali, as it looks different from one angle and could confuse audience. The traffic light is nice as well, so as the Slum where they live.
The background score is great too and not to forget the ever complimenting dialogues. Everything is of high standard in this show and this will be an example which people will follow if they want to venture out in same genre .They have a Herculean task to better this show and its creative genius.
We just wish that makers show Ichcha and her aspirations coming true. Then it will give a new hope to the underprivileged and deprived strata of our society too...
