What is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saraswatichandra all about?

What is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saraswatichandra all about?

The perfectionist producer-director is back making larger than life love stories, but this time it’s for TV

It’s obviously a big thing for Sanjay Leela Bhansali to take a break from movies and do something else, but his debut TV show is nothing less than an extravagant and expensive movie.

It is confirmed that Gautam Rode, who is currently hosting Nach Baliye 5, and Jennifer Winget will be playing the main leads in SLB’s Saraswatichandra. Wethinks it’s a brilliant choice – the pairing is definitely interesting and fresh.

According to recent updates, SLB has also roped in Monica Bedi to play a grey character in the story. Monica, who is currently filming her Punjabi movie, is kicked about the big opportunity. He has also roped in model Shiny Doshi and Anirudh Singh to play the parallel leads. Shiny will be essaying Jennifer’s sister and Anirudh will be Gautam’s close friend Sunny.

The story has been inspired by novelist Govardhanram Tripathi’s 1887 book and Govind Saraiya’s 1968 movie – both by the same name. The TV show will be on similar lines, but we hope that Bhansali upgrades it to the current time period.

Well if you are curious to know the story, here it goes:

Saraswatichandra (Gautam Rode) is raised by his stepmother (Monica Bedi), who doesn’t consider him as her own. In spite of being treated like an unwanted, Saraswatichandra grows up to be a compassionate, intelligent and charming man. However, when his father decides to get him married, he does not relent to the idea. Nonetheless, his father still goes ahead with his alliance to Kumud (Jennifer Winget) who hails from an affluent family. When Saraswati hears of this, he sends a letter to Kumud – we think it will be an email in this case – explaining his predicament and calling off the alliance. But Kumud replies to his letter. And in a series of mails to each other – the inevitable happens – they fall in love.

One day, Saraswati takes off to meet the love of his life. When his stepmother learns of his actions, she poisons her husband’s mind forcing him to call off the wedding without informing his son. When Saraswati comes back, he gets another letter from Kumud informing him that she is marrying someone else.

Kumud, who is now married to Pramadh – an illiterate, unsophisticated, alcoholic, who frequents brothels, is in depression. But Saraswatichandra re-enters her life, this time as Navinchandra. He is employed by her in-laws. Was it fate or planned? Will they get back together or not? There are too many questions and very few answers.

Saraswatichandra will be aired on February 15 or 25 at 8 pm replacing Kaali – Ek Punar Avatar.Subscribe to me on YouTube

  • Madhu Mehta

    I can not see them apart the complete each other. I am watching the show just because of the sweet love story; no disaster please in their life! It is so romantic and out of world that you don’t see in real life and every single girl likes to have such unspoken romance in their life. Very pure and loving. But every thing will go down the drain if they get separated. so please don’t let it happen at least in the story we already have so many miseries in our life!!

  • Aragyaa

    Saraswatichandra started off super but now it is a big drAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAg!!!
    It is so unrealistic and stupid on part of Saras to act and think like this !! I hope this serial doesn’t end up like another boring Indian melodrama!

    • diya

      i really agree with you

  • samsudeep

    saraswatichandra is undoubtly gargoius serial but i doubted it mustn’t have happy ending.It is the indian physciology that every one wants to see happy ending so plz saras or kumud ko kabi juda mat karna varna hum sabi viewers ka dil tut jayega.

  • simran

  • sheetal

    Plez dont break their rista this serial should have a happy ending….plez change the story..


    According 2 my opinion also I would like to say dat true love should never be aparted frm each othr,bohaut takleef hoti h jb 2 pyaar krne wale ek dusre se door ho jae to…insaan jee k v jee nhi pata,, and this z d fact k koi kitna v koshish kr le pr wo apne sacche pyaar ko kbi nai bhul skta,, kbi nahi…………. so its my humble reqst to SLB SIR.. plzzzzzz dont seperate kumud n saras,,,,,,, plzzzzzz, waise to sacche pyaar ka kbi end ni hota par still i would like to request u to end the serial with happy endings and not a sad one. thnk u :)

    In today’s fast lift all people struggle for two times food and at the end of the day we all are very tired. Generally we meet with our family members after 7:00 to 8:00 pm and after it we entertaining by TV shows. If this shows gave us pain we do not like to see it, all of we want happiness in our life as well as others so we love those shows which gave us fun and entertainment. So Mr.Bhanshali if you don’t change your story then your show go down……
