Star Pravah's new Marathi serial
'Suvasini' is inviting special attention, for
the manner in which it is presented. Not only the artistes in this serial are
par excellence; but the set design and costumes bring the pre independence era
live before you on the small screen.
'Suvasini' which is a Sanskrit word, means, "One whose Husband is Alive in other
words Sumangali." People with this name tend to be very warm and nurturing. They
are extremely reliable and are often found taking care of others. They have a
deep need to try and create harmony in their surroundings. .
So, as the title suggests, the serial tries to present the feelings and
lifestyle of female folks during those olden days. 'Suvasini' is a tale of a
young girl who has the determination to challenge her circumstances and fight
against all odds in the society, while she passes through all the stages as a
daughter, wife and a mother. With perfect locations and suitable art design, the
serial goes on to create a deep impact with the social values and its relevance
in today's changing time. The new girl Aishwarya Tupe as Savi the central
character, is impressive. With this sensible production,
Smita Talwalkar as a
producer, makes a comeback to the small screen with this new subject.
On Sunday, E-TV premiered a sensible film 'Karuya Udyachi Baat' on this timely
subject of Global warming. Starring Neha Pendse and Pankaj Vishnu in the lead,
the film had failed to invite attention when released earlier this year, for the
reasons best known to the producers. Perhaps, the distribution didn't work well.
But, through the television media, the film certainly did well to spread the
most relevant message to the masses, about the dangers of Global warming and
what best people can do to protect the environment. Such films are the need of
the time and efforts of the film maker for handling this subject and the
artistes for taking up such projects is to be highly appreciated.
On the news front, the latest news flashed is about the person who has been
teaching discipline to the parliamentarians of India . Through RTI act, it has
now been brought to the notice of the people that Lok Sabha speaker Meera Kumar
has to pay arrears of more than 1 Crore rupees to the Government, in the form of
rent, for the Government bungalow occupied by her since her father's death.
Isn't that a big breaking news ? Saam TV highlighted this story in their news
bulletin on Tuesday 22nd November 2011.
In the Sports section, while there was talk about Sachin reaching his century of
centuries on his home ground, at the political front, there was battle of words
between Mr. Ajit Pawar and Thackeray brothers. On the interference of Thackeray
brothers into farmer's struggle, Mr. Ajit Pawar was reported saying on Marathi
TV news that the Thackeray brothers had no business to talk about farming, as
their forefathers were not farmers. Reacting to this statement, MNS chief Mr.
Raj Thackeray has countered by questioning as to how much do the Pawar family
know about cricket ? With the nearing of Municipal elections in Mumbai, such
battle of words is expected to reach its peak in days to come.
