Awesome threesome

"Kuchh Love Kuchh Masti" on Sahara One depicts the unattractive experiences and attitudes of three young girls

THREE GIRLS, three lifestyles. Three attitudes, three opinions. And well, no morals. This is what the ongoing serial on Sahara One Kuchh Love Kuchh Masti directed by Girish Malik is all about.

This ninth serial by Girish, after the popular Mission Fateh, Aao Bahan Chugli Karen and others, is the story of three young girls who live life on their own terms.

Reflection of society

One believes in love but not in marriage. Neena falls in love with a married man.

Then there is Pooja, a self-made young woman, who falls for an older man as she does not find boys of her age mature and sensitive enough, while the third one is Vartika who loves two men at the same time for different qualities in them but is honest to both of them.

"There is nothing unusual in the story. It happens in society, so why hide it?" defends Girish. "I have read that last year that there were 37 per cent divorces in India. Today, too much is expected out of a relationship, that is why it breaks. We don't need to be diplomatic about it. And something that exists in a society is what I am portraying in the serial too."

But then, the serial is not just about revealing outfits, outlandish lifestyles and attitude of the girls. It is about a "U-turn" that the girls' lives take and that is where they realise their folly.

"If you live life on your terms without caring for society, you end up losing many good friends and relations and achieve nothing," is what the serial might end up preaching.

Take for instance, when the married man's wife gets pregnant, he grows closer to her. This makes Vartika feel insecure and she wants to get out of the relationship. Whether you are fed up by that time or not remains to be seen.

The three girls faced opposition at home when they decided to pursue acting as a career.

But they believed in living lives on their own terms!

Lead artistes

Madhuri Bhattacharya, a Delhi Public School product and a budding lawyer, plays Pooja in the serial. Her role "voices the opinion of many", while for Hansraj College student Sonika Anand (Vartika), "These characters are true to metropolitan life. They are not ones who look at others to form an opinion."

And for Sunaina, an MTV VJ contest winner in 2000, who plays Neena, "the serial exposes the hollow lives of those who want to live in a dream house".
