Tele Films are proud to be associated with Columbia Tristar International
Television and Sony Entertainment Television for the successful
adaptation of Columbia Tristar's internationally popular and successful
comedy serial 'Bewitched' as 'Meri Biwi Wonderful' which launched
on 19th September 2002. 'Meri Biwi Wonderful' is inspired from Columbia
Tristar International Television's one of the world's most popular
show "Bewitched". Bewitched was America's favourite family show
for nearly eight years from 1964 to 1972.
Biwi Wonderful is a young sitcom, it centers around a young,
loving couple, the female half of which happens to be a PARI. Come
to think of it, we all live in two different worlds, one real and
the other imaginary or the world of dreams. None of us has a control
over the real world but when it comes to dreams, no one is a miser.
For a dream is a dream and bigger the fantasy, bigger is the dream,
which has little logic and no boundaries. For all human beings fairies
with magic wands exist only in dreams. But what happens when a perfectly
normal man meets a fairy, falls in love and gets married? And moreover,
what will happen if the enemy no. 1, the mother-in-law, is also
a fairy? Surely life wouldn't be easy and simple but a combination
of trouble, fun, hilarity, magic wands and so on. Now are you in
your dream, thinking of a fairy as your wife? Please do so but first
watch what happens to Raj who is married to Angela, a lovable fairy,
in 'Meri Biwi Wonderful'.
Raj is a straight forward, honest and an emotional young man working
in Mr. Malkani's ad agency. A perfectionist in his job as well as
an eligible bachelor, one fine day Raj falls in love with a woman
called Angela who looks amazingly beautiful and gets married to
her, only to discover later that she is actually from another world!
Angela has certain supernatural powers, which are like magical acts,
which exist only in the dream world. Angela wanted to tell Raj about
her true identity but Raj never gave her an opportunity. But when
he comes to know Angela's true identity on their honeymoon night,
it is too late. But then both of them love each other so much that
that there is no question turning back now. Raj extracts a promise
from Angela that she won't use her powers unless it is absolutely
necessary. But the problem is that Angela's definition of absolutely
necessary is quite different from that of Raj. Another major problem
with both is Angela's mother Dolly, also a fairy. Dolly is not happy
with the fact that Angela has broken the rules of her world and
married a human being.
becomes a major problem for both Raj and Angela as Dolly becomes
another problem in their lives. She dislikes Raj so much that with
her magical powers, she keeps creating problems for Raj to prove
to Angela that her marriage to Raj is a big mistake. But Angela
loves Raj so much that to save him from all the problems created
by her mother she uses her magical powers which results in an ongoing
war of magical powers!
short, Meri Biwi Wonderful is a humorous story which is filled
with fun, laughter, love, romance, magic and special effects where
the thin line dividing the real world from the dream world gets
blurred. Says Asit Modi, "Indian television has not seen a comedy
like this before. Most comedies are either family shows, husband-wife
comedies or satires. But 'Meri Biwi Wonderful' is the first comedy
about a beautiful pair, a man and a fairy, with elements of magic,
jugglery, gimmicks and special effects. It is a comedy which arises
out of a clash between two worlds - real and fantasy - co-existing
under one roof !!"
