Colors Tamil, Tamil Nadu’s youngest GEC admired for its alluring line-up of women-centric narratives, is all set to launch yet another enthralling show, ‘Bommi B.A, B.L.’.
The new show will address deep-rooted prejudice and bias against women, an official statement from Viacom18, the channel’s owners said. Starting May 3, `Bommi B.A, B.L.’ will air at 6:30 pm from Monday to Saturday.
Set in pre-independence Calcutta (now called Kolkata), `Bommi B.A., B.L.’t races the journey of eight-year-old Bommi (played by Aura Bhatnagar), who is married off to a 60-year-old man. But as fate would have it, her life takes a sudden tragic turn. While she becomes prey to social injustice, fate leads her to her husband Anirudh, a London-return Barrister who wishes to liberalize women and unstrap them from cultural stereotypes.
As her husband, Anirudh helps Bommi to get out of this gloomy tradition of social discrimination. This leads them to embark on a journey together where Bommi goes on to become a barrister and challenges the system with her tough and thought-provoking arguments.
Commenting on the launch of the show, Anup Chandrasekharan, Business Head, Colors Tamil, said, “We are committed to showcasing content that is engaging and thought-provoking. In tune with this, we are delighted to launch ‘Bommi B.A, B.L.’, which will bring in a whirlwind of change in our social fabric with its unique and bold storyline. With a focus on diverse and engaging content, we are confident that Bommi will become a household favourite instantly.”
