Latest prime time daily soap ‘Sethji’ (title role played by senior yet gorgeous TV star Gurdeep Kohli), brings to you an intriguing story of a unique ram-rajya village – Devsu, that runs on its own set of rules and principles. Detached from the rest of the world, Devsu considers its borders sacred and is far away from corruption, temptation and dishonesty. As we move swiftly towards a modern and digitalized India, there exists a Devsu that is devoid of even basic signs of urban development like electricity, comfort utilities, ATMs, mobile or digital networks and yet is a happy, self-sufficient world. It’s an engaging classic clash of Aadarsh-vaadi Bhaaratversus progressive hi-tech India.
Safeguarding Devsu’s interests, watching over its people and development like a hawk is its strong matriarch, Sethji. Devsu draws its rooted yet progressive personality from its feisty, 38-year-old leader, Sethji, a woman of substance. A perfect blend of autocratic power and sensitivity, Sethji rules Devsu with an iron hand and at the same time, is devoted to her equally important roles of being a loving mother, mother-in-law and grandmother.
Against the backdrop of this unique village, a beautiful, unlikely love story will develop between Sethji’s son Baaji Rao, an innocent boy who has never seen anything beyond the borders of his village and Pragati, a fearless hi-tech modern girl from across the border. She enters Devsu on her own personal mission unaware that people from outside are not allowed in the village. Premiering on April 17, the show will air from Monday to Friday at 7 pm on Zee TV.
