Television rarely touches upon complex and sensitive topics especially those considered taboo by the society. Even if it does, it is rarely in a positive light.

With that said, Zee TV’s new show, Aadhe Adhoore (Sunday at 20:00 CAT on Zee TV), is a refreshing soap opera that is creating a buzz.

Set in Kapurthala (India), Aadhe Adhoore presents the story of Jassi who tries to strike a balance between her emotions and the circumstances she finds herself trapped in, leading to a relationship between herself and her husband’s younger brother.

On the show’s bold subject, the director comments: “People do confront such situations in their life. It has occurred in the past and will do so in future too. Unlike others, I do not believe in turning a blind eye to it.”

Jassi, the devoted wife, daughter-in-law and sister-in-law who fulfils all her duties, is left alone by her husband who goes abroad to earn money, bringing her close to her brother-in-law. Making a strong case for her.

Jassi’s character encompasses different shades - much akin to reality - and, unlike women characters in other series, she is not depicted as perfect or imperfect. Aadhe Adhoore highlights how Jassi is torn between her duties and needs.
