Bandini which got launched on the same day as Kitani Mohabbat Hai also comes from the Balaji stables and is aired on NDTV Imagine. The show started last week amidst high expectations from audiences. The star cast boasts of Ronit Roy and giving him company are many new as well as able actors. The show kicks-off as the 'perfect' litmus test for the hit combination of Ronit Roy and Balaji Telefilms.
Story: Bandini is the story of a girl who hails from a small
Actors: Dharamraj aka Ronit Roy is looking royal, graceful and is living the character to the 'T'. There could have been no better choice than him to play this character on television at the moment. So casting is fabulous and flawless. As far as Santu (Aasiya Kazi) is concerned she is also doing her bit quite nicely and her style of speaking suits the role. So as the other cast especially Naanu, Moongi and Khemi deserve a round of applause. They remind you of characters straight from many novels of Premchand and other writers of that era. The scene when Nanu has to sell off his "mawri" or cow to pay the debt of Dharamraj, rings bells in your ears of Godaan, a novel by Premchand. This was one touching and heart wrenching scene in the show, and surely the best scene of the first week. The best part of this show is that you are getting to see actors who are new to Balaji Klan and thus bringing freshness to the whole show.
Set and Ambiance: Sets and the ambiance are apt and go with the theme and story, whether it be the small hut of Naanu, the entire village, fields, Dhramraj's mansion or factory; everything is very ably crafted and erected. This is what viewers look forward to see and they have got to see different locales and settings at last, as the whole village set up is very authentic and colorful. Even the terrains shown have come out very beautifully with bushes of cactus in and around the village, and this provides a realistic touch for sure!!

Oops, I think it got cut off..Any way the gist of it is if you want the show to be a success make the story new. Don''t make it a love story, but make it a conflict between rich and poor, make it a conflict between changing world and ancient ways, make it a conflict between old and new. Drop the love theme....
Thanks for the review. Now why does this show sound like Balika Vadhu, village theme, ancient customs etc. The whole thing is Ekta is trying to plagiarize Kasamh Se theme with Balika Vadhu''s skin. An older guy falling for a younger girl...(Only thing is the girls are getting younger and younger and the guys are getting older and older....)
Unfortunately I did visit the forum, and I saw people were already clamoring for a marriage between the the much older man and a very young village girl. It seems like the creative team wants to recreate Kasamh Se with another set of actors. KS was a novelty and succeeded because the concept was somewhat new at the time.
Ekta does excel in plagiarizing, either from her own shows or from movies or from other shows. Now the novel twist would be if the lead character actually does not marry the young girl but looks after her and gets her married to some one she loves.
I am getting tired of young girls having to marry rich, older guys because they have no choice and people actually thinking that this is OK....I watch Balika Vadhu regularly and some how it is not about love and innocent little v***ins falling for rich guys and adjusting to life with them.
The plot of BV is old, a bitter mother-in-law making it impossible for every one in the family to live in accordance to modernity and changing times. What makes it good to watch is the conflict between the family members and the acting is excellent in Balika Vadhu.
If Ekta wants to make a success of the show, she needs to fire her creative team first. Because they are scared of new ideas and they always go back to the old ways. If anything needs to be successful, it has to be genuine. This show starts of being a cheap fake, you know the kind of perfume that says that it smells just like ''Tresor'' but cheaper??
The question is do people want to see the old and cheap wine (Kasamh Se)...
