DD set to woo women with 'Kaamnaa'- a tale of two sisters

MUMBAI: Although the top show on the channel is a supernatural thriller Aap Beeti, DD seems to be slowly warming up to women centric shows. Just months after launching a slew of shows, each with a strong female protagonist, the pubcaster is all set to launch Kaamnaa on 22 April 2004.

A weekly serial, Kaamnaa will air every Thursday on the National Network on DD 1.

Produced by Puneet Mehta and Anita Jain, and directed by Satish J Kaushik, the show stars Neha Sharad, Vaishanavi, Parikshit Sahani, Aarushi, Hemant Chaudhary and Tarun Shukla.

A family soap opera, Kaamnaa is a story about two married sisters, Madhavee and Gayatree, who are like chalk and cheese. Each has a different set of values. While younger sister Gayatree stays in a joint family with her children- a teenage son Gopi and two daughters Simran and Muskaan- a husband, a mother-in-law and a brother-in-law. Being an ideal housewife, she respects family values, and gives due respect to all her relations. All that she desires is to lead a peaceful family life but often faces problems.

Whereas, Madhavee, the elder sister has different set of values to lead her life. An ambitious go-getter, she is a career woman, who want to be recognised in the field of drama and high society. She lives separated from her husband Bhasker- a senior and successful government servant. She stays with her daughter Priya but not alone. She has a live-in friend, Sudhanshu, an artiste. Interestingly, even Sudhashu is separted from his wife and has a daughter Maansee.

Apt to its title, Kaamnaa is show about the two protagonists each with their own desire. The clash between the separate values provides the friction and the drama to the story.
