Nostalgia: Light at the End of the Tunnel!
Rangmunch.TV has always been fascinated by all that happens on the other side of the Camera. A couple of days ago, I was browsing through the various Channels, when I noticed a show being aired on StarOne. Since it had many familiar faces, I was curious to know what the show was all about. I sat on to watch the entire episode and realized it had an interesting storyline.
Yeh Tera Ghar Yeh Mera Ghar, that airs at 9:00 PM on StarOne, Monday to Friday, was actually a show that was made for Star Plus, but never aired as the Channel, at that time, felt a story of that kind might not work with the audience.
Yeh Tera Ghar… tells the story of an old man who lives alone in his hometown and yearns to meet his three sons, who have moved away from home. Having settled with their own lives and families now, they do not plan to return to their hometown or their father, until they hear of his death and the will he has left behind. The brothers are miffed when they learn that their father has left everything in the custody of a young girl named Gauri. She lets them know that their late father had laid down certain terms and conditions in the will that would require them to stay together with their families under one roof for a year in order to bequeath the Twenty Crores each that their father has left them with. Forced by circumstances and their need to acquire what they think is their right, the brothers stay back reluctantly. How this very condition binds and brings the family together forms the crux of the story.
Shot over forty-five episodes, this gripping family drama, has a variety of emotions to offer. We spoke to Director Ravi Bhushan, who still fondly remembers the show as one of his best works. Ravi to his credit has hit shows like Miley Jab Hum Tum and currently airing StarPlus show Navya.
Today we watch so many shows on TV, sometimes, we lose track of what is playing where. Amidst all this, have you ever wondered, what happens to all those shows that are shot for a period of time, are supposed to air somewhere, and then they never see the light of the day? What then happens to the time, the resources, the efforts poured into that particular project? Well, that’s a horror story, told in itself, but we are glad ‘Yeh Tera Ghar-Yeh Mera Ghar’ is finally airing on TV and by the looks of it, people are enjoying watching this show in between their current favourites on the Channel.
We at Rangmunch.TV recommend this show and request you to watch it and give the show the due it deserves!
