MUMBAI: After the revamp of the 8 - 8:30 slot on the other two major Hindi entertainment channels -- Star Plus and Sony -- Zee unveils its latest offering Tumhari Disha in the same slot beginning 22 August from Sundays through Wednesdays.

Tumhari Disha, essentially a family- social drama, tells the story of a young girl who battles her emotions on learning a cruel but strange truth about her life. Disha, the protagonist, lets go of her love on learning that her two pillars of strength, her parents, are not her biological parents and that she is the daughter of a servant.

Situations arise where she has to prove her loyalty, even at the cost of her dreams, to the people who have given her a good life. Tumhari Disha introduces Chhavi Mittal as Disha, along with established stars like Kanwaljeet Singh, Zarina Wahab, Karishma Randhawa and Nitin Raaj.

Film Farm is the production house and Tumhari Disha is their second television production, the first being Dil Na Jaane Kyon, the first series of Chausath Panne. Producer Rupali Guha's inspiration was Bimal Roy's Nutan and Sunil Dutt starrer Sujatha. Speaking exclusively to indiantelevision.com, Guha says, "I have stuck to the commercial formula, but within that I have tried to keep an element of realism. Also, the storyline of the show is very strong and the cast aids to flesh out the whole concept."

Pitted against the Spanish novellas, it will be interesting to see the response this show receives. Targeting a different TG and Tumhari Disha being a different genre altogether as well, it not be competing with an established show. This definitely makes the odds against this programme a lot less.

Directed by Hemant Prabhu, this definitely seems like a property that one cannot cast a blind eye to. Also, Sundays through Wednesdays being an interesting proposition of days considering the viewer has one day with this show exclusive as compared to Hum Do Hain Na and Dekho Magar Pyaar Se which air Mondays through Thursdays, increasing the possibility of stickiness for the current underdog Tumhari Disha.

Synopsis of the show:

Fair and pragmatic Upen and Ranjana Upadhyay have raised their two daughters, Disha and Rano, with equal attention and no discrimination. This creates a strong undisputed bond between the two sisters and the parents. But one fine day, a dark secret from the past threatens to create a rift between the two sisters. When Ranjana realises that Rano is in love with Inder, but Inder is keener to marry Disha, Ranjana lets the cat out of the bag. She discloses the fact to Disha that she is not their biological child but the daughter of their servant. Disha, on realising that Rano loves Inder, makes the biggest sacrifice of her life by marrying Sehgal -a much older divorcee suitor. She thus proves her loyalty to her foster family.
