Breaking the monotony of the saas-bahu sagas, Aakash Aath serial Satyamev Jayate focuses on the life of an investigative journalist who made it big in the world of media. A set visit was arranged for this serial and our correspondent caught up with the director and the cast at the set.
Sreemoyee Banerjee is a girl from small town. She achieves high marks in her examinations. Her parents do not support her dream of becoming a journalist. Rather, they want her to get married so that they can shed off responsibilities from their shoulders. She runs away from her wedding and comes to Kolkata. The first company where she goes to give an interview rejects her. The next company, a channel named Darpan hires her. She starts a show Satyamev Jayate where she brings to light the various wrong deeds happening in the society like casting couch, expired patient kept on ventilation and other such cases. The channel’s TRP goes high and the channel which was earlier the number one channel tries to purchase her. However she rejects the offer.
Speaking at the occasion, director Arindam Basu said “The scene that we are shooting here is after the high TRP, all the staff of the channel comes to spend some time away from work. However, a person dies. The police declares that this is a normal death. But Sreemoyee is sure of the fact that this is not a normal death. What happens next is what the audience will have to wait to watch”.
Dipankar Dey who plays the role of Sreemoyee’s office boss, Manik Dutta said “I am really happy at the way Arindam is handling the entire project. He is very detailed about every scene. Manik Dutta is a mad character. He is reliant on Sreemoyee”.
Sampa Banerjee (Sreemoyee Banerjee), Priyam (Sreemoyee’s husband), Sagnik (Munna Vai), Siddhartha Ghosh (Sreemoyee’s friend Tanmoy), Ayush Das (Sreemoyee’s brother Bittu) and others will be seen in pivotal roles.
The shooting of this serial has been done at real locations all over the city.
Satyamev Jayate is aired on Aakash Aath at 9pm from Monday to Saturday.
