Our Take:

mohi653Mohi is a show based on the dream conception and fulfillment. Good detailing of the leads and their distinct family backgrounds. There are many parallel tracks and well justified. Vinita Joshi is superb as Mohi in her language, characterized behavior and most importantly looking the best in her simple tribal attire. It’s a good shift from heavy costumes and jewelry to watch something new and delightful to the eyes. The show brings freshness by the village scenes shot very well. It has suspense made up by the mysterious naxals hiding in the village. The show has crisp innocence of the village and also the practicality of city. It brings a good blend of both the contrast entities. Karan Sharma and Rishma Rochlani are good in their roles. They have more to show up in the coming episodes. Shishir Sharma and Nivedita Bhattacharya are effortless actors. Shishir portrays Anusha’s concerned father aptly. Gauri Tonk fits in the socialite’s role well. Suneel Sinha, Pramod Moutho and other supporting actors are fairly cast. The show has good description and amazing scene of the tribal village. The beauty of the nature is depicted well. Its refreshing to see waterfalls, mountains and good backgrounds. The show is on adequate pace. The show is going on the right track by the first week.


mohi2It is a tale of an innocent girl whose dreams has no boundaries. It shows how dreams can be achieved by a person without losing the innocent appeal and inner goodness. The show promotes education and its importance in one’s life, and also turns inspiring for the people who find it tough to achieve. Mohi describes how success lands in lives of the determined people and how to turn the weaknesses into biggest strengths. Star Plus has got this substantial show with a bright inspiring story. It has a good concept and audience will love it with each coming episode. It a good change from regular shows and a family entertainer.
