TV preview: Colors’ Havan pits faith against logic

If you are one of the few… multitudes of people wondering what Colors’ new show Havan is all about, here’s what we learnt

Rajan Shahi’s new production is a deliberate attempt to veer away from his earlier love sagas. Havan tries to imagine what will happen when a devotee meets her God – in the form of a Godman – and the relationships that will be forged on belief instead of logic. The story will deal with several situations that can be understood through faith and not rational thought. Till one day, the devotee’s faith in the Godman is challenged. Not interested? You might be if we add that the show is being produced by Rajan Shahi – the same guy behind your favourite soaps Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Sapna Babul Ka Bidaai. And he admits that Havan is a deliberate attempt to do something different from these tearjerkers. “No one has explored this genre before. As soon as I heard the concept, I wanted to make this show. My company (Directors Kut) has made Bidaai, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Swarg and Chaand Chupa Badal Mein. Making this show is like reinventing ourselves,” he said. And did we tell you it stars Kasturi girl Shubhangi Atre? Interested enough to tune in? Tell us!

Havan premieres September 26 at 7pm on Colors
