The Indian woman has always been the epitome of tradition and values in our society, but can the men be left far behind? Every mother has expectations from her son, every wife wants attention from her husband and every sister is possessive about her brother. But will the perfect man be able to live up to these expectations? Breaking the stereotype, Sony Entertainment Television is all set to launch a new show, ‘Hum Hain Na’, which showcases the story of a man’s struggle to strike the perfect balance. Premiering on September 1, 2014, from Monday to Thursday at 9:30 PM, the new show hopes to answer the question – can a perfect son also be a perfect husband?
Produced by DJ’s Creative Unit, ‘Hum Hain Na’ is set in the beautiful town of Benaras and follows the life of a young and charming boy, Shivprasad Mishra aka Bunty (Kanwar Dhillon). An ideal brother, son and friend, he is the blue-eyed boy of his family. His entire world revolves around the three women in his life – his amma (mother), badi didi (elder sister) and chhoti (younger sister). In any given situation, he has quick fixes to brighten up the mood of each of his family members. But, in a bid to keep everyone happy, Bunty’s own personal life is always in trouble.
His life takes a turn when his elder sister makes him promise not to get married until she is married off. Being a true Benarasi, Bunty vows to never go back on his words, but is stuck when he bumps into his dream girl, Saagarika (Pratyusha Banerjee), at a family wedding. Saagarika, raised single-handedly by her father, who is unaware of a woman’s needs, after her mother’s death, sees a complete contrast in Bunty who is full of affection and sensitivity towards women. When these two opposites meet, what follows is a series of interesting and heart-warming events.
Ajay Bhalwankar, Chief Creative Director, Sony Entertainment Television, said, “Indian television has always appreciated women’s contribution to a family, but this time we are celebrating a man’s role in bringing the family together. ‘Hum Hain Na’ is a refreshing-yet-modern take on how Bunty balances the different women in his life seamlessly. Our protagonist transitions from being a doting brother and a caring son to a sensitive boyfriend so impeccably, that it seems as if he is almost unreal. His sensitivity and emotional nature might make one feel he is metrosexual, but, in reality, his heart belongs to the values of the place he belongs to.”
Deeya and Tony Singh of DJ’s Creative Unit said, “‘Hum Hain Na’ is a story very close to reality. It’s the story of a boy who is a perfect son and a perfect brother, wanting a wife who will embrace his universe which consists of his family, and a girl who wants to be the universe of her man and desires to have the perfect husband who is sensitive to her needs as a woman. Now the question is, can a boy who is a perfect son and a perfect brother also be a perfect husband? Will this become a perfect love story?”
