SABTNL launching daily social drama on DD metro Monday

Sri Adhikari Brothers Television (SABTNL) continues its long association with national broadcaster Doordarshan with the launch on Monday of a new daily social drama Kuntee on DD Metro.

Kuntee marks a departure of sorts for veteran director Gautam Adhikari. It is for the first time that Adhikari, who prefers the thriller format, is delving into social drama, a company release states.

The story's protagonist is Kuntee, an ambitious but ill-fated girl, whose father, despite being a doctor, is not only orthodox but also ruthless and cruel towards her for the simple fact that she resembled her mother who he despised immensely.

The story of her life takes another swirl when her boyfriend with whom she has been involved since she was quite young, betrays her when she becomes pregnant, leaving her with no other option but to seek refuge in a home for destitute women - "Sarlaben's Mahila Aashram".

To add to her woes, Kuntee loses custody of her child as she is unmarried. Kuntee is the tale of this woman and how she fights to get back her lost child.

Kuntee airs Monday to Friday at 8:30 pm.
