Tere Shehar Mein is all about Rishi Mathur (Sachin Tyagi), his wife Sneha Mathur (Gautami Kapoor) and their three daughters, Rachita Mathur (Anjum Fakih), Amaaya Mathur (Heeba Nawab) and Jasmine Mathur (Isha Mishra).
Rishi feels that money can buy everything, while Sneha feels that they need to value every penny and wants her kids also to do the same.
As the story progresses, Rishi faces a financial crunch and commits suicide. Oh My God!! I am reminded of the Raj Travels fiasco!!
Anyways, its not that the Mathur’s realise that they are broke.
From the rich and opulent life in Paris they are transported to a middle class life in Varanasi and that’s what forms the basic crux of the show.
Tere Shehar Mein is a poor copy of Sense And Sensibility, a novel by Jane Austen. The show falls flat when it comes to it’s characterisations and script.
The makers had a great story line, but the way they have handled a subject roves that it’s no where even close to what it should have been.
The outdoor in Paris looked great, but the moment one got to see the indoors, it looked patchy because I am sure it was shot in some studio in Mumbai.
Either the makes should have shot the entire schedule in Paris before they finally got the story to Varanasi or they should have never visited Paris.
Now coming to the cast, well all the three girls are exceptionally disappointing and are just sleep walking there roles. If one considers the depth in each of their characters in the novel, they are no where even close to that.
However, the star of the show is Gautami Kapoor as Sneha Mathur. She is the only silver lining to this one and one should applaud her for being so committed and honest with her performance.
All in all, Tere Shehar Mein will end up being just another show on television.
It starts off in Paris, it has a bunch of characters that do not make any sense and it has a glamorous looking Gautami Kapoor; well we are talking abo...0.5
