Story So Far:
The story begins in Model Town society, which is built by a builder Raval. The residents are from different walks of life. The neighborhood does not function right after the Raavan idol is brought for Raavan Dahan. Nandu is shown working as a strict traffic cop. Her equations with Raju are not good. Raju flirts with Nandu, and they both converse in rowdy language. Their arguments show their attitude and enmity. Raju expresses he likes Nandu and still insults her. He never misses a chance to hurt Nandu’s sentiments.
The society has many people, who have chosen demon side in them. A man cheats on his wife. Bribing and corruption are commonly seen. Mishra promotes his little daughter to bribe people and take commission. People use all wrong methods to earn living. Raju beats up people and snatches their money. Raju hates every fatherly figure. He recalls his father’s drinking habit ruining his family’s harmony. Raju values money, as his mother works in other’s home for money. Raju’s sister Rashmi’s marriage is on the cards. Nandu’s sister Anjali has problems with her inlaws. Nandu does not let Rashmi go with her mum in law. She teaches a lesson to Anjali’s mum in law. Anjali has a good husband and inlaws. Anjali does not wish to even cook at her husband’s home and tells everyone that inlaws mentally torture her. Nandu does not want a bad marriage for Anjali.
At Raavan Dahan, Nandu and Raju shoot fire arrows. The Raavan does not burn. Raval tells them that its very unlucky if Raavan does not burn. He fills a doubt in everyone’s mind. Raju and Nandu try hard to remove the Raavan and fail. Raavan’s bad sight starts affecting everyone. Nandu’s father Kishore moves in Model Town with his second wife Komal and son Billu. Nandu reacts angrily and insults Kishore. Kishore sends off Anjali to her inlaws. Anjali informs Nandu. Nandu gets Anjali’s inlaws arrested on wrong blame. She gets Anjali back home. Kishore seeks Raju’s help in making Anjali withdraw the case. Raju scares Anjali of police. Anjali withdraws the case. Nandu gets to know of Raju’s step and yells on him. Raju beats Kishore for not being a dutiful father.
Rashmi tells Raju about her marriage preponed. Raju beats up tent house owner Gupta to make the arrangements done for free. Raju’s mother does not accept his help. Raju indirectly tries to help them. Rashmi misses Raju in her sangeet. Nandu gets Raju in sangeet by convincing him. Raju recalls his father teaching him piano in childhood. Both father and son play piano in the sangeet to make it a hit event. Raju and Nandu have a dance together. A mystery man is shown spreading Raavan’s fear. He plans to ruin the peace and spoil Rashmi’s marriage.
The story is good enough to draw interest. The leads are good in their act. Jatin Sharma as Raju looks very convincing as the rowdy. Vinti Idnani as Nandu has more to show up on her character. Vinti’s dialogue delivery looks tough on the tone, but has less impact. Jatin is graceful as the rowdy, with good impact dialogues and angry expressions. Vinti’s feminine side to tough Nandu is nice. The supporting cast is well cast. Mihir Mishra’s character Ravan will be gaining space in coming weeks. He is remarkable in his short role.
Supriya’s entry is yet to happen. She dons a powerful character Rambhateri. There are many lacking points in the storyline. Sometimes the scene comes soon, else it is disconnected to the previous one. The characters sketch is weak. There had to be more depth in bringing up distinction in characters and link their past. The mystery of Raavan is the only interesting thing in the show. To see Supriya’s character fight with evil and make Model town residents meet their angelic side makes a wonderful concept.
Life Ok always tries out new concepts. The channel gives chance to fresh talent. The try is notable. Good attempt and hope to see more good from the story. It has comic element in it. It can be fairly seen by audience who like comedy and drama genre.
