Reality is the flavour of the season and that’s why when series of reality shows are giving Saas Bahu serials a run for TRP, there is one which is slowly gaining popularity with all age groups of tele-viewers. ‘Balika Vadhu – Kachchi Umar Ke Pakke Rishte’ on Colors Entertainment Channel is making a good progress with its viewership as people are able to relate the daily shows with their day to day life activities. Further the performance by all the artist specially by the protagonist of the show Anandi is very innocent and sweet. Finally, television producers realise that unreal dramas, big fake setups do not go a long way. People want to see something going around them and want to find a solution to their problem.
Balika Vadhu – Excerpt from Colors Entertainment Channel [www.colorstv.in]
Set in rural Rajasthan, ‘Balika Vadhu’ traces the arduous journey of child bride Anandi from the brink of childhood to womanhood. Married at the tender age of eight, to an equally young Jagdish, she enters a new world which is at once alienating and confusing. And torn away from the merriment of childhood and her family, she has to accept and accustom herself to this new family of strangers, new relationships and accept her roles as a friend, lover, wife and a mother as she forges her way in the world.
‘Balika Vadhu’ very sensitively portrays the plight of children who are unwittingly forced into marriage, in the name of tradition, and have to bear the repercussions for the rest of their lives.
