Five reasons Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant is a must watch!

Life OK’s latest venture Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant has managed to marvel the audience with its maiden episode. A tale of a dysfunctional family, the show has a rather satirical approach to the day-to-day issues modern families face. A relatable tale with a Sci-fi twist, the show has been enticing the audiences since its first promo. Those who have seen the first two episodes say it’s a must watch. Why, you ask? Here’s five reasons why you won’t want to miss this one:

Robotic Women?

The two episode old show which focuses on a robotic superwoman may not be far from the reality of today’s world. Believe it or not, the humanoid Rajni is simply an amplified version of a modern woman. She cooks, she cleans, she goes to work, takes care of her family and does not complain. The show’s attempt to tell us that the person they call a superhumaniod is simply your wife, mother, sister and friend is truly commendable.

New Age Sitcom

New producers, new lead for the title role and a completely new concept, the show has so much to offer. Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant tackles an age old issue of women’s place in society without the excessive tears. Let’s face it, we all needed a break from saasu bahu dramas anyways! What’s more, the men of the house cook, the mother of the house dictates with wit instead of power and the daughter-in-laws are not expected to adharsh bharatiya naaris.

Witty Comedy

We’ve seen enough of the slapstick, now it’s time for something more intelligent and that is exactly what Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant delivers. Granted that the show has a few déjà-vu moments when it comes to comic scenes but the way they are presented is witty indeed. Take for example the chai making scene. We all expected a mishap but the mirchi and all the reactions to follow were up to par!

Ensemble Cast

After a long time, television has seen an ensemble that works so well together. Like missing pieces of a puzzle, each actor not only fits into their individual roles but also compliments the family as a whole. Male lead Karan V Grover is impeccable as the  quirky, awkward and frustrated scientist. Seasoned actors such as Rajendra Chawla and Pallavi Pradhan add the much needed intensity to the show while Mehul Nisar, Pankit Thakker, Tanvi Thakkar and Vahbbiz Dorabjee provide upbeat and light hearted moments which set the show apart.

Rajni_Kant!

Living up to the name is a challenge indeed but Ridhima Pandit carries the title role exceptionally well. The fresh face not only adds to the newness of the show but delivers the message of reform in the Indian television industry loud and clear.
