"Kuch Love Kuch Masti" on Sahara One routes its morals through a lane of unattractive experiences and attitudes
THREE GIRLS, three lifestyles. Three attitudes, three opinions. And well, no morals. This is what the ongoing serial on Sahara One Kuch Love Kuch Masti directed by Girish Malik is "currently" all about.
This ninth serial by Girish after one famous Mission Fateh, Aao Bahan Chugli Karen and others, is the story of three young girls who live life on their own terms and condition. One believes in love but not in the institution of marriage, so this girl called Neena falls in love with a married man who would not force her for marriage. One is a self-made girl Pooja, who gets inclined towards 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 and is honest to both of them about it.
"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 cases of divorce in India. Today, too much is expected out of a relationship, that is why they break. 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," he seems clear in his mind about what he want to show.
Not just outfits
But then, the serial is not just about revealing outfits, outlandish life styles 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 are living life on your terms and conditions without caring for the society and people close to you, you end up losing so many good people in the bargain and the achievement in hand is none," is what the serial might end up preaching. Take for instance, when the married man's wife gets pregnant, he grows closer to her that overwhelms Sonika with insecurity and she wants to get out of this relationship. Whether you are fed up by that time or not remains to be seen.
Interestingly, three girls in the serial have almost gone through the similar phases of oppositions at home when they decided to plunge into acting as their careers.
But then they believed in living lives on their condition too! Too apt roles for their personalities?
If you believe, for Madhuri Bhattacharya, a Delhi Public School product and a budding lawyer, who plays Pooja in this serial, her role will "voice opinion of many through Pooja's character", while for Hansraj College student Sonika Anand aka 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 hollow lives of those who want to live in a dream house".
We will wait and watch!
