Concept & Story:
Prince Surath of Chandranagri is a descendant of Manu and he is the chosen one
who will rebuild the destroyed temple of Durga. The story revolves around Surath
and his consort, Sumukhi, the princess of neighboring Vijaydurg. Sumukhi is a
devout worshipper of the goddess Durga.
Their parents decide to get them married and their chance meeting in the ruins
of the temple is designed by divine forces, to inspire them rebuild the temple.
This temple has been lying in complete ruins for a few centuries, and Surath's
ancestors appear to him to make him aware of his duty, as does the goddess Durga,
who appears on earth in the form of nine little girls. The love story is filled
with a lot of dramatic plots. Surath is overthrown from the throne, and he meets
the sage, Medha Rishi. The Rishi tells the prince the story of Durga and thus
makes him a devout follower of the goddess, leading to a stronger motivation to
rebuild the temple.
However, rebuilding will not be an easy task, since the evil forces will do
anything in their power to hinder the process. It is the story of relationships,
and how circumstances affect the relationships. The love story between Sumukhi
and Surath goes through upheavals because of strong beliefs in honour and duty,
and also betrayal and distrust. True love may or may not overcome all obstacles.
It is the story of devotion. Sumukhi turns to the unseen force whenever she is
in trouble. So strong is her belief that the goddess makes herself visible to
her in the form of nine little girls. Sumukhi knows that she is always protected
by the creator of the universe.
It is the story of deceit. Sumukhi's maternal uncle Durjay has his own reasons
for trying to destroy her father and his relationships.
It is the story of lust and greed. Dhoomraketu lusts after Sumukhi, only to be
killed unceremoniously by the brave Surath. This leads to his brother Kalketu's
vengeance, and thus the destruction begins.
It is a lesson in life, with sage words from none other than the goddess
herself. It is the story of good versus evil - the existence of both is
important for the balance in the Universe. One cannot exist without the other,
but when evil becomes too strong, divine powers have to intervene, so that
mankind survives yet another era.
The show will have a lot of dramatic moments, aimed to enthrall both older and
younger audiences alike. Children will particularly like Pawan, Surath's horse,
and friend. He is one of the main characters in the story, and has a pivotal
role. While the story of Surath is an historical one, the story of Durga is a
part of Indian mythology, and the show will blend in all these worlds to bring
to the audience a costume drama, shot on a scale not seen earlier on Indian
