Premiering on Monday, March 5 Prothom Protisruti airs from Monday – Sunday at 9:30 pm only on COLORS Bangla.

The first installment of the trilogy, Prothom Protisruti invokes a deep notion on the slow yet gradual evolution of society in Bengal through the viewpoint of three generations of women. The protagonist Satyabati’s journey on the show will take the viewers through various stages of liberation and finding her true identity.

Revitalizing these glorious pieces of art through the medium of television, we aim to satiate the demand of the viewers for meaningful content.

The eloquent ensemble cast complimenting the riveting story will make the show a must-watch for all television viewers.”
