Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts. We’re about to take off on a yet another emotional journey encompassing three lives, one of a kid and two of adults.
This one’s about a rather young aunt who steps in look after her orphaned nephew. So far, so good. The duo live in a rented house and predictably, they have a devilish landlady. Madam wears a Maharashtrian nose ring (thought women wore it only around festivals) to the market and everywhere else. She demands rent wherever she catches her tenants. It’s a dukhbhari kahani of the aunt who doesn’t have a job and has to manage a household on a pittance.
The basic storyline reminds one of It Started in Naples. Of course, the soap is an Indianised and stretched version of the classic, with several sub-plots.
Of the cast, the male protagonist has just made an entrance in the show so it still needs to be seen how he
performs. The lady, however, needs to handle the role with more maturity and conviction. The kid is cute and one can’t have complaints. Overall, it’s nothing more than an average show.
