Colors Devanshi serial latest news, Devanshi story so far
Colors much awaited show “Devanshi” went on air yesterday, 03 October 2016 and will telecast every day at 7.00 PM.
Produced by Full House Media, the production house behind Bahu Humari Rajni_Kant, it is written by Sonali Jaffar, the lady behind Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.
Based on the concept inspired by self-acclaimed God Mothers. Devanshi is a story of a fake Godwoman who exercises a hypnotic hold over a village. She is supposedly the chosen one of Ghungroowali Mata as the local deity is known. Things change when she adopts a child Devanshi deciding to raise her as a temple.
The first episode focused largely on the build up of the character of Maa Kusum Sundari essayed by talented and versatile actress Karuna Pandey who recently received a lot of appreciation in her last show Bhaag Re Mann (Zindagi Channel)
Here we bring to you reasons why you should watch Devanshi!
The biggest USP of the show, where the concept of the show takes off from the incident of a new-born accidentally falling into a hundi and then becoming the property of the God woman. And then, how this little girl, who has been a ‘forced-upon-gift’ revolts against the same God woman.
Among the actors, Karuna Pandey and Aamir Dalvi steal the show as Kusum Sundari and her secret lover Mohan (the sevak-cum-pehelvan). The Bhaage Re Mann actress is good as the manipulative, slimy and scheming Kusum Sundari. Aamir Dalvi matches her well as her partner in crime with his magical tricks to help Sunadri fool the villagers and being her secret lover in the dark. The makers did not shy away from showing the sexual side of the Godwoman. Devanshi’s premise is quite clear and we seem to be headed for some drama ahead.
The child actress Kashvi Kothari aka Devanshi and Ankita Sharma too are powerful actors in their roles.
The twists in the tale
Devanshi may be the first show to introduce twists even before it goes on-air. While the character of Mohan (Aamir Dalvi) is shown a sevak and pehelvan, he is also madly in love with Kusum Sundari (Karuna Pandey). And that angle makes his preaching for her even interesting. Also, the little Devanshi soon turns into a miracle woman herself which irritates Kusum Sundari.
Devanshi is a mass entertainer with its dose of drama, suspense and a hint of sleaze. The show can be the next Balika Vadhu, in terms of bringing social change, if it sticks to its storyline about exposing godwomen and godmen for who they really are.
Devanshi Story So Far
Going by the premiere episode, the show seems to be a compelling drama revolving around a powerful godwoman Maa Kusum Sundari (Karuna Pandey) who has cast a spell of sorts on her devotees, with a series of miracles that she carries out with the help of her accomplice-cum-secret lover (Aamir Dalvi). As hordes and hordes of bhakts line up to meet Maa Kusum Sundari in her temple, she lights up the diyas with the sway of her hand. Maa also goes on to treat a leprosy patient by giving her a ‘divine hug’. A jadoo ki jhappi?
In reality, the so-called divine goddess is only cheating people by using tricks that magicians often use to entertain people. The only difference is she’s using them with the intention of deceiving, cheating and making money.
The subsequent scenes delve deep into the complex layers of the woman. Turns out, she even has a secret love life. It’s only when her ‘supporter’ Mohini steps into the bathtub along with her and removes her ghoonghat that we get to know that she is actually a man called Mohan. In the bathtub, the pious Maa turns into a seductress.
When Maa Kusum Sundari enters her bedroom, she turns into a sati-savitri wife to her ailing husband. Or are we mistaken again? Her ailing husband, who established the temple many years back, knows her game by now.
Pressing his feet, Kusum Sundari goes on to recall how she, a ‘bhikaran bhagat’ went on to earn millions. It all started when her husband dug out an idol of a goddess to build a small temple. Kusum Sundari turned it into a sprawling 5000 metre property, by cashing in on people’s emotions.
A couple (Preeti Chaudhary and Mazhar Syed) believes that they were blessed with a baby girl, thanks to the blessings of Ghunghroo Wali Maa and Maa Kusum Sundari. They name her Devanshi (Kashvi Kothari), since they consider her “devi ka ansh”. They come to her mandir for blessings but what they don’t know is that they are going to lose their daughter to their blind belief and superstition. During the darshan, the newborn falls into the ‘maata ki hundi’, where the devotees donate money and other things to the temple. It is believed that whatever (or whoever) falls into the hundi is the temple’s property.
“Is mandir ka niyam hai, ki jo is hudni mein aa gaya, wo maata ka ho gaya.”
To the couple’s horror, Maa Kusum Sundari decides that their newborn is the mandir’s property and from now on, the temple will take care of the child. Will the parents be able to save their daughter from the clutches of Maa Kusum Sundari?
This gripping drama has only left us asking for more.
