TV Review: ‘Dekha Ek Khwaab’ doesn’t offer anything new

Sony’s new show seems like an inspired version of the Princess Diaries, whatever its producers might say

Dekha Ek Khwaab starts with the protagonist Muniya (Priyal Gor) enjoying the Mumbai rains. She is a simple down to earth girl who wishes for her own princess story. Little does she know that she just might get that chance, thanks to Rajmata Mrinalini Devi and Maharaj Brijraj Singh. Aruna Irani and Shahbaaz Khan are tailor-made for their roles of royalty. Yet, the show started on a slow note without any punch making it a rather dull affair. So much so that even the entry of Abhishak Rawat’s Akash fell flat. The initial episode itself hints that Muniya’s life is not exactly as it’s made out to be and she has a connection to royalty. But what bored us was the fact that in spite of being an outspoken and loud character, Muniya is blissfully ignorant of the outside world. Her doting father advises her to not venture outdoors but doesn’t give any explanations. Muniya’s characterisation shows conflicting attributes and she comes across as fake. Her supposedly polar opposite is the Rajmata’s granddaughter, Jaynandini aka J – a snobbish and arrogant girl who has just stepped into adulthood. The actor goes overboard with her character and requires extensive training in dialogue delivery. On the whole, the serial doesn’t seem to offer anything unique or interesting. While the makers scream on top of their voices that the story is different, we seem to have a hard time believing it. If Sony head honchos really expected to retain the high TRPs they got thanks to Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 5 with this show, they are going to be sorely disappointed.
