This is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s first foray into the world of television. I enjoyed the movie of the same name, starring Nutan and Manish. It was the last black and white movie released and one of the first I watched. It was a sad story, peppered with class conflict. The televised version appears to be a modern adaptation with stronger characters. Not to mention two of my favourite TV actors, Gautam Rode and Jennifer Winget star – I’ll be watching.
Saraswatichandra airs Monday 25 2013 in India and Tuesday 26 2013 in Australia.
