Storyline

Set in rural Rajasthan, 'Balika Vadhu' traces the arduous journey of child bride Anandi from the brink of childhood to womanhood. Married at the tender age of eight, Anandi had to accept and accustom herself to a new family of strangers and accept her roles as a friend, lover, wife and a daughter in law during childhood itself. Now, as a young adult, she faces new challenges as she tries to carve out her own identity in the world. 'Balika Vadhu' very sensitively portrays the plight of children who are unwittingly forced into marriage, in the name of tradition, and have to bear the repercussions for the rest of their lives.

nice
25 November 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

one of many Indian soap opera.far to be real original. same recipes, same acting, same clichés. the good thing is the work to reflect the great social problems. not original but useful for sensibler about the child brides, about moral values, about tradition and about family rules. sure, nothing profound but enough for be little more than a sentimental movie. and that fact is a good point. for understand a side of India, for crumbs of nice performances, for the stereotypes and for the desire to be different. the humor and the drama, in precise proportions, are not bad ingredients for a story in many parts confused.
