And here's a small analysis of the first promo of the show.
What is the promo about?
The voice over tells about how we see a lady in registaan
and how she is sometimes spotted dancing in the deserts at night. We see a woman dancing and Ram (Ankit Siwach
) stops his car and walks off towards her. It is said that she has been waiting for years for her true love and then it is revealed that she has been waiting for 500 years. And when Ram attempts to touch her, she vanishes into thin air. By then, Ram's wife Sia comes and takes him away, as the voice over states that Manmohini will break lovers to find her true love.
What we liked:
There was nothing not to like in the first promo of ManMohini
. Reyhna Pandit
as Manmohini, Ankit Siwach
as Ram who gets drawn to the vamp and Garima Rathore as the worried wife Sia, all fit the bill and portray their roles perfectly.
From the looks of the promo, the promo has been shot in real locales of Rajasthan and Prateek Sharma has done a wonderful job of the same.
There is very minimal but some VFX (of the ladies vanishing and merging into ManMohini
), and that looks neat and clean, very much to our liking.
What we did not like:
While we got a rough idea of what ManMohini
is going to be all about, we did feel like we've watched this concept of a vamp snatching a man and his wife fighting tooth and nail fer her suhaag,
in Kavach- Kaali Shaktiyon Se, before. And if the show's concept is not what we think it is, then the makers should have provided some more clarity in the first promo itself.
Getting past the what we did not like point, the performances and the concept does intrigue us, as we are willing to give the makers a benefit of doubt here. We eagerly await the next promo of the show.
