Great Show!
19 July 2005 | by saba2115See all my reviews

I love Astitva.

The story is unusual and extremely balanced. I like what the scriptwriters are doing with it.

The portrayal of a mature Indian woman going through life's trials and tribulations with as much maturity as she can is what makes this show one of the most popular on Sony TV.

I think Simran is beautiful and I love the way she carries herself. She is elegant without being unbelievable. The storyline helps the audience to identify with her.

The main characters are very well etched, especially the father, the maid and Abhi. I also like the girl who portrays Sia. She is wonderful. I wish they hadn't changed the young man who plays Siddhant. The current actor just cannot carry off the role of a successful doctor who has suffered pain in his life as a young child. When he wants to portray pain he looks sullen. He should also learn to keep his mouth closed--some of his facial expressions are not very pleasant.

I am just worried about the direction that the story is taking. I hope the scriptwriters get to read this-- I am afraid that the writers may be falling into the trap of stereotyping the adopted girl. Her portrayal borders on being quite negative. Sia seems to be an angel in comparison.

Also, the fact that Simran seems incapable of a single negative action takes away somewhat from the credibility of the story.

The actor playing Abhi is becoming better and better as time goes.

Everything about the serial is good. It's polished and elegant and does not slide into the melodramatic vulgarity of some other shows that are currently being aired on Sony TV.
