Prashant Bhagia directed His Story starring Satyadeep Mishra, Riyamani, and Mrinal Dutt tackles a bold theme of homosexuality. After a time period of 20 years when most marriages seem to have run through their turbulences and rough weather and seem to be settling down, life for Sakshi turns upside down. She is on the brink of a major breakdown when she discovers that her husband is having an affair with another man. Kunal and Sakshi apparently seem to be the perfect couple with all material assets and two lovely children Shlok (Mikail Gandhi) and Shivaay (Nitin Bhatia). Their dream house and flourishing restaurant business seem to provide the ideal backdrop for an ideal family.
They say that what meets the eye most of the time may not be true, this is what happens when the marital world of the two main protagonists comes crumbling down/ Sakshi learns about her husband’s affair with Preet played by Mrinal Dutt. This 11-part series will make you wonder as to how the situation will shape up and how Sakshi will be able to handle or cope with this unfortunate, shocking development in her life that has hit her hard.
The story by Suparn S Varma is gripping with its fair share of twists and turns. The original thrill and excitement though tends to wane towards the end of the series. There are members of the audience who will identify with the three protagonists – Sakshi, Kunal, and Preet but the children’s characters and roles could have been developed better. The dialogues by Ritu Bhatia create a lot of confusion and are rather heavy. The children also have dialogues that are quite difficult to decipher at times. One wonders why the LGBTQIA community can still not come out in the open. The songs are above average and strike a chord somewhere in your hearts.
