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.

Is Anandi actually telling the truth?
25 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

In the witness box, Anandi tells the court that Jagdish's attitude towards women is impeccable!!!!!!!!!! This from a woman who has been treated so shabbily as a wife does not ring true AT ALL. She should have been more sincere about her past experience with Jagdish. Her statement was in poor taste and not fair to Shiv who saw her through her bad times with Jagdish. The write up at the end of the episode praising Anandi for her truthfulness is rather misleading. Granted Jagdish is making an effort to change, but he still has to go a long way to prove himself. Just by treating a few sick patients will not wipe away his behavior in the past - it is the duty of every doctor to do so!
