Another name that was attached with the show was Nadira, another veteran and most favourite actresses of all time. She played one of the three leading women in the show. The show had received mixed response from the industry and from the critics. As mentioned that the show was mostly based on feminism but on the other according to the makers of the show it was a show where different shades of relationships can be seen.


The main plot of the show was based on three women who came from different background and situation. They met accidentally and pointed out that at some point of time in life they are similar and they will understand each other’s problems they were going through. These three women were of different ages. The senior most lady among them was Mrs. Joshi (60 years) who had a husband, kids and grandkids to accompany her in rest of her life. She had always been a perfect daughter, wife, mother and now grandmother. She was a happy soul until she came to know one day that her husband all this while was having an affair with some other lady who was unfortunately lost her life.

Mrs. Joshi’s story started from there when she felt cheated and humiliated that made her take a drastic decision of leaving her house and family. She met another woman namely Naashi (33 years) who leaft her husband too. Naashi had other problems. She was unable to balance between feelings and technicalities of life. She wanted real feelings, sharing and caring from her husband but all she could get a stereotype life that runs through technicalities.

Another woman Anu, who was merely 19 years old wanted to pursue her career first before getting married to her boyfriend, met these two women. As the story started these three women gradually pointed out their problems and returned back to their life with happy faces.

Relevance Today

Man versus woman fight is neither new nor old to call it a past. The issue remains the same even today when we know women are equal to men. There are certain points when the society becomes biased towards men or sometimes towards women. This problem does not have any solid solution for sure. The show was not exactly about the solution to this problem but it showed few things that even today are relevant.

A husband who is cheating on his wife for last 40 years is asking for 2nd chance because his affair is no more. Can a marriage that has everything but real feeling be a successful one? Is it a crime to pursue career first and then get married just because you are a girl? All these questions were raised in the show that made it look like promoting feminism.

But the other side of the coin looked little different. When Mrs. Joshi returned back to her husband, they became friends. For the first time in so many years of marriage they both have found real friends in each other which were satisfying. For Naashi, her husband finally realised what did he loose when Naashi left home. He went every extent to get back her in his life. Anu’s boyfriend and family now understand it is important for her to be independent. The story depicted every girl’s heart and tiny little angles of relationships.
