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.

surviving
29 June 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a series who reminds the work of Penelope expecting Ulyses. story by story by story. united by small moral lessons. great themes, huge dramas, unrealistic situations and the characters in the skin of eternal youth. at its end, the start remains more confuse by the first episode. sure, noble, good intentions. crumbs of Indian civilization . and the grandmother as pillar of family and interest. but the story of poor Anandi remains strange and confuse. like the evolution of her daughter. and the only question about this series, with a so precise target, remains the obscure desire to give a kind of American soap opera without any coherence. it is strange to say if it is a good or a bad series because, after a long time , it becomes familiar. not interesting or seductive but, like an easy novel, familiar. so, a surviving series. about tradition, family and more small details.
