After a lot anticipation, Sanjivani, the second season of hit 2002 present Sanjivani: A Medical Boon, premiered on Monday. In its first two episodes, we get an perception into the a number of subplots which, if not given correct therapy, have the potential to show the medical drama right into a run-of-the-mill every day cleaning soap.
The politics of energy has taken over Sanjivani with Dr Vardhaan (Rohit Roy) and Dr Anjali Gupta (Sayantani Ghosh) eyeing Dr Shashank Gupta’s (Mohnish Bahl) publish of Sanjivani’s director. Dr Ishaani ‘Arora’ (Surbhi Chandna), the first-year resident physician, refrains from telling her final identify as she despises her physician father for in all probability placing somebody’s life at stake for cash and Dr Sid (Namit Khanna) hates the wealthy. He manipulates them into paying extra and makes use of their cash within the therapy of the poor. Lastly, Dr Shashank’s fondness for Dr Juhi aka Gurdeep Kohli makes his daughter Anjali insecure.
Felt a wierd sense of deja-vu whereas studying these strains? Effectively sure, these sub plots will appear acquainted to common viewers of Indian tv. Therefore, I hope the makers have an excellent plan in place for a recent therapy to those acquainted subplots. Like, I know Dr Ishaani and Dr Sid, after a love-hate relationship, will ultimately fall in love, identical to Dr Armaan and Dr Riddhima did in Dill Mill Gayye. Nonetheless, can we please count on them to have a love story totally different from the 1000’s we have now already watched?
In the meantime, the place the present works for me is how the writers have intertwined the story of the brand new present with that of its earlier version and spin-off. They’ve retained the characters of Dr Shashank and Dr Juhi from Sanjivani: A Medical Boon and Dr Anjali (Dr Riddhima’s sister) from Dill Mill Gayye. And that iconic whistle succeeds in evoking nostalgia.
Additionally, it’s attention-grabbing to look at younger professionals take care of the complexities of their affected person’s well being and their inter-personal relationships concurrently.
I won’t dismiss the present completely because it has the potential to ring a bell with millennials and indulge our mothers and grandmoms. However I hope the present doesn’t hark again to the same-old formulaic tracks to outlive within the rat race.
