Indian television is known for its soap operas and why wouldn’t it be! The diversity that our soap operas showcase nowadays enables us to be entertained and educated at the same time. As time passes the quantity of soap operas is actually getting better and more refined than before!
But the thing is that with the rise of numbers i.e. quantity of the daily soap operas, the quality and diversity of the plots of these soap operas are decreasing day by day. They are becoming more and more homogenic and their plots are becoming more and more about saas bahu drama.
We’re not saying that saas-bahu drama is not entertaining or that it has all become monotonous but if every channel produces maximum number of these dramas, naturally they are losing their quality and ability to entertain. But this is not the case with Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya.
Kumkum Bhagya is one such soap opera thag doesn’t fall in the arena of saas-bahu drama. It’s as matriarchal as it gets, and frankly that’s something that we do cherish in contemporary times. There are very few family drama serials currently running on the Indian television which can lays great stress on women and their lifestyle but ensure that they tackle society issues of the modern times and represent women in a whole new light.
Abhi and Pragya, played by actors Shabbir Ahluwalia and Sriti Jha, are doing an astounding job as the lead pair of the show and we are totally enthralled to see this couple breaking stereotypes and crushing barriers through Kumkum Bhagya.
This is one of those rare serials that has the right blend of everything, script, actors and dialogues, and you definitely shouldn’t miss it for the world.
