Colors’ serial Shakti Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki has been one of the most popular shows on the Indian television which has the bold concept of a transgender (kinner) being the lead of the show. Shakti Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki is the story of Soumya’s fight for her identity and the major part of Soumya’s life is Harman (Vivian D’sena), who loves Soumya immensely despite knowing her kinner status.
Soumya (Rubina Dilaik) is seen as the soft spoken, beautiful and lovable person while Harman is the man in love, who can do anything for Soumya. Despite being an odd love story, viewers have loved Shakti serial and the Shakti TRP is the proof of it. While Harman, Soumya’s sister Surbhi (Roshni Sahota) and Nani love and support Soumya, Harman’s family, especially mother Preeto (Kamya Punjabi) hates Soumya and wants to separate Harman and Soumya at any cost. Till now, Harman and Soumya have always supported each other and have stood up for each others’ love.
However, the current track of Soumya distancing herself from Harman and going to the lowest extent to be away from Harman seems to be going haywire. Soumya, who used to love Harman, has come into Preeto’s words so much that she has left the country to be away from Harman. Soumya wants to search her own identity as she feels that Harman is ashamed of she being a kinner. The truth is Harman hid Soumya’s kinner status as he worries about her as society’s approach towards kinners is not favorable.
But rather than giving a chance to Harman to explain himself, Soumya insults him, distances him and even goes to Bangkok with Preeto and Saya’s help. Soumya falls in the hands of cunning Maharani who plans to sell off Soumya. On the other hand, Harman reaches Bangkok to save Soumya. Even when Soumya is shocked and tries to escape from Maharani when Soumya comes across Harman, she chooses Maharani. Soumya prefers to be sold rather than going back to Harman. We wonder if the makers of Shakti serial are losing their plot in the attempt to show Harman and Soumya’s misunderstanding and separation? Will a person, be it a kinner, not realize that the man loves her to the great extent if he follows her facing all the distance, dangers and humiliations? In the upcoming episode Harman will be seen bidding highest for Soumya and buying her, will it give a sense of identity to Soumya? We wonder if the makers of Shakti are losing the plot here.
