Bengali soaps too are keeping track of changing times. In Checkmate, Milli Dastidar, written off by her tough-cop father as a “worthless girl child”, opens a detective agency, and solves every criminal case that she handles. Bindi, through its eponymous heroine, explores the theme of human trafficking. In Amar Naam Joyeeta, a gutsy, ambitious middle-class girl, has her sights set on making it big in a man’s world, armed with a law degree. Amader Ananda Bari looks at unconventional relationships, with the youngest son of the family marrying a divorcee who has a child. The elder brother is weighing the options about breaking away from the family and forming a nuclear family with his wife.
