'Resham Jhanpi' on Colors Bangla from 13 Feb

MUMBAI: Some stories are not bound by the chains of language, boundaries or emotions. They resonate with all those who understand the invaluable right to Freedom. Bringing to audience in Bengal, Colors Bangla announces the launch of ‘Resham Jhanpi’, the Bengali adaptation of the critically acclaimed show on Colors, Udaan. Narrating the tale of Titli, a free-spirited kid whose existence is pawned by her helpless and poverty-stricken desperate family when in her mother’s womb, as collateral for money. Conceptualised by ace director Mahesh Bhatt, Resham Jhanpi marks the journey of seven-year-old Titli as she rises like a phoenix towards her dreams to showcase a mind without fear. Produced by Vandana Films the show is set to go on air from 13 February every Monday to Saturday at 8.30 pm.

Commenting on the show Colors Bangla & Colors Odia Suvonkar Banerjee vice-president said, “The story of Resham Jhanpi has all the ingredients to make for a heartwarming story centering around the sentiment of Freedom. Through Titli, our young protagonist, we are showcasing world which many of our viewers will be able to identify with. The show highlights the strength and vigor women possess to change their fate. We hope that the audiences will join Titli on her journey from innocence, realisation, hope, freedom and achievement.”

Set against the rustic backdrop in the hinterland of Reshamnganj, Resham Jhanpi narrates an honest rendition of life and society. Bringing to light the innocence of a young but sharp-minded child, Titli whose unhindered zest for life strengthens when faced with challenges at the hands of the owner, MP Dayal Chand Thakur, a political representative ironically entrusted with the responsibility of safeguarding the interest of the downtrodden. Unaware of the circumstances which have led to her being wagered, Titli experiences a gamut of emotions as she struggles to take wings and find her rightful place under the sun.

Producer for the show Shibaji Panja said, “A show like Resham Jhanpi is an awakening to the harsh reality that’s prevalent even today in the remote villages of India. Titli’s journey of her struggles in life, her tryst with fate and her victory over the most difficult circumstances, will inspire everyone. I’m sure that Resham Jhanpi will be a grand success and will be able to win millions of Bengali hearts.”

Resham Jhanpi brings together power-packed performances by a strong ensemble cast who will be instrumental in the life of lead actor Titli (Smriti Singh). The initial episodes of the show will focus on Titli’s relationship with her warmhearted mother Padma (Anushua Mukherjee), her weak and under-confident father Bhubon (Rajesh Chatterjee) and her strong willed younger sister and playmate Bulbuli (Anushka). As Titli’s life reaches crossroads at the tender age of seven, she moves into the home of the cruel and short-tempered MP Dayal Chand Thakur (Sandip Dey) and his shrewd authoritarian wife Maa Thakurun Rajeshwari (June Maliah). Amidst the cruelty she finds solace in Boro Maa (Runa Banerjee), the Thakur’s mother and a strict follower of Gandhian principles.
