Tamil channel viewers, gear up to sit back and enjoy a very unusual TV show called Nenjam Pesude on Polimer TV at 9.00 PM, Monday to Friday and retelecast at 12.15 PM, for all those sweet ladies who can’t fight with the family for the TV remote.
Nenjam Pesude is a dubbed Tamil version of the Hindi show “Na bole tum na maine kuch kaha”, all about an unusual love story between an idealistic crime reporter and a strong willed widow with two kids. The story so far …. The widow Mrs Meena and her two kids Dhanya eight years and Aditya alias Addu 6 years come to live with her in laws in Indore after the death of her husband Mr Amar mysteriously during the construction of Mahananada flyover in Bhopal for which he was the Chief Engineer. This incident renders Amar to be a corrupt man and the family to face endless humiliation which follows them to Indore.
The father in law Mr Veera Raghavan and the whole family have full faith in Amar’s character and strongly believe that he had been framed by the corrupt builder Mr Dinanath. Having faith in the judicial system, the family is very confident that the judgment of the court case which is under review for the past two years will be given in favour of Amar soon. The family with a single bread winner in the form of brother in law Mr Sanjay is supported by Mr VeeraRaghavan as an insurance agent. In the absence of an access to Amar’s money from bank accounts due to the ongoing court case, and with the arrival of Meena and her kids the family is living a hand to mouth existence.
Dhanya is a very sensitive child and a silent spectator to the whole scenario of humiliation meted to them by outsiders and taunts by her aunt Renu (wife of Sanjay) about their unwelcome entry into the household. Dhanya decides to rid her mom of all the troubles by publishing an advertisement in a newspaper seeking an alliance for her mom thinking that the new husband will bring back all the cheer in her mother’s life as it is shown in TV serials. She is able to accomplish this with the help of reporter Mr Mohan Prasad (the hero) who is incidentally working for the same newspaper and also happens to be their neighbor. All hell breaks loose after this incident and Meena and family has to once again undergo lot of humiliation and in the process Sanjay also loses his job. Dhanya and the hero Mr Mohan being in the same neighborhood to the family realize the gravity of the situation and this becomes a ground for the two to bond together.
At the same time, Mr Mohan Prasad is investigating the case of Mahananda flyover scam and discovers that Amar is none other the father of Dhanya and Meena’s husband. All the evidences about the Mahnanda flyover scam point a direct role of Amar in the scam. Confronted with a major dilemma of supporting Amar, keeping in mind the unflinching faith his family has on him or going against Amar as per the evidences collected, Mohan takes a very difficult decision and publishes the report in the newspaper implicating Amar in the Mahananda flyover scam.
This article becomes a ground to turn the case against Amar and the investigating committee also implicates Amar in the scam. The family is shattered and devastated…..
PS: A word of caution…. The show takes a very slow pace to start with but please hold on as it is going to take off to amazing heights very soon…… The serial is unique because it is about the triumphs and tribulations of a normal middle class family and the characters so simple, yet dignified with whom each one of us can identify. A lot is conveyed only through eyes and heart as the title says Nenjam Pesude….
