Star Bharat looks to expand its roster with new original programming where apart from a couple of shows, not much seems to be working out for the channel lately. However, this new show seems to be just the answer. Kartik Purnima is the latest offering from the channel and the trailer of the same was recently out.
Here's what we think about it.
In the trailer, we see a bunch of kids playing cricket as a shot has the ball finding itself hitting an aunt on the balcony of her house. She comes fuming and while the kids are terrified, a girl enters out of nowhere and takes the bat from the kid thus having the aunt believe that it was the girl who hit the shot.
The lady goes on to further attach the girl with harsh words including comments on her color and beauty which the girl listens to calmly. As soon as the aunt is done yelling, the girl is smiling and laughing with the kids as if nothing happened. All this is being witnessed by an on-looker boy.
The treatment of the promo is so subtle, gentle and endearing. One of the best things about conveying relevant issues is not saying out loud but making a mark effectively. That is what happens in the promo where the female protagonist suffers all the remarks with a smile and subtly it is pointed out how the society is obsessed with fair skin and how dark-skinned people have to face a lot.
The promo certainly holds for an impressive love story too with a great message. There is certainly great promise with the show.
The show stars Poloumi Das and Harsh Nagar in lead roles.
