Twist In The Plot

  • In Kya Hua Tera Vaada, saas helps bahu chalk out plan to win philandering husband back
  • In Diya Aur Bati Hum, the bahu of an uneducated halwai family in Pushkar is hell-bent on becoming an IPS officer
  • In Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha, hero crime reporter woos widowed mother of two

***

“If a divorced man can remarry, why can’t a woman? I will get my divorcee daughter-in-law remarried,” vows a mother-in-law before a room full of wedding guests. If this was playing on a TV screen near you on Monday, maybe Tuesday arrived with: “I don’t love any woman, neither can I ever do that.” That’s a husband blurting out to his wife that he loves a man. Before the week is over, you will have seen and heard enough to know that now ‘ghar ghar ki kahani’ on Hindi entertainment channels comes with a twist.

Not that conniving...
