Zee TV recently put the spotlight on defying your destiny with its new fiction show Apna Time Bhi Aayega. An inspiring narrative of a young daughter of a head servant in an affluent family of Jaipur who refuses to be tied down by her humble roots. Breaking free of the shackles of background, she chooses to carve her own destiny and soars above the class boundaries to find a place of her own amongst the elite, thus living up to the name ‘Rani’ that her father had lovingly given her and the dreams they have collectively envisioned for her.
About the show
Aptly titled ‘Apna Time Bhi Aayega’, the show follows Rani and her bond with her father who despite being from a modest background has raised her like a queen. Unlike most father-daughter relationships typically seen across Hindi GECs where the daughters’ dreams are often reined in by a father who provides a reality check and persuades her to opt for the tried and tested, traditional approach of life, here is a father who has consciously raised Rani to believe that the sky is the limit for her. Although Rani learns to dream big and chases after her audacious goals with her father’s constant encouragement, unusual circumstances compel her to take on his position as the head servant in the Rajawat household. She faces discrimination owing to her social status, her small town roots and financial background. In an era where the world has progressed by leaps and bounds, unfortunately, we still have several people who have not evolved and continue to discriminate the rich from the poor, urban from the rural and judge people on their background rather than their ambitions or talent.
Popular television actress Anushka Sen is seen bringing alive the young and attractive character of Rani. On the other hand, television actor Pratish Vohra who hails from the Banswara district of Uttar Pradesh, is seen essaying the role of Rani’s father – Ramadheer. Fahmaan Khan too is seen in the show, playing the role of Veer Rajawat, who is the eldest son of the royal family and a doctor by profession. Veer appears strict from the outside, but in reality, he is quite sensitive and caring from within. Despite being adopted by his mother, Veer is an absolute perfectionist like her and seeks her affection and approval. Tannaz Irani plays the role of Rani Sa, who is the head of the royal family.
Pratish is doing a good job as Ramadheer. On the other hand, Anushka Sen’s acting steals the show. She also does a superb job of getting the accent right. Pratish and Anushka’s bond as father-daughter looks very real and relatable. The dramatic meeting of Rani and Veer wherein they bump into each other and have a fight kept us hooked. Tannaz Irani’s acting also keeps us entertained. She manages to make a mark with her screen presence.
Fahmaan and Anushka’s pairing is unusual. Anushka looks very young in front of him. However, they have a spark in their chemistry and that might work in their favour.
Overall it’s a good start for the show with some impressive performances.
We credit the show with 3 out of 5 stars.
