Indian Hindi TV Serial Review | Uttaran

Story of Uttaran

This is a TV serial of India in Hindi Language aired by Color Television Channel since December 1, 2008. In the first six months the show revolved around two small girls Ichcha and Tapasya who were from totally different social and economic background. Ichcha was born in slum and was looked after her single mother Damini but Tapasya was only daughter of a rich parent Jogi Thakur and Dibya Thakur who used to live in a palace. Damini joined this rich family as a maid to give her daughter Ichcha a better life. Ichcha and Tapasya became friend and they both enjoyed each other’s company until the new character, an aunt of Divya Thakur enters in to the scene. This crooked woman, the grandma (Nani) of Tapasya started making her class conscious. At that time it was revealed that Ichcha’s father died due to a run over incident for which Jogi Thakur was responsible.

Thakur and his wife accepted Ichcha as their daughter but Tapasya was not happy by this decision. She turned into an enemy of Ichcha by the constant provocation of Nani and started harassing her at every opportunity she got.

On 20 June 2009, the show took a 10-year leap. Both Ichcha and Tapasya turned into adult. But Tapasya’s attitude did not changed; she still had hatred against Ichcha in spite of Ichcha’s true love and affection for her.

A new character Veer, a handsome and wealthy young man was introduced in to the show. Veer came to propose Tapasys as per the will of his family but Tapasya was not interested as she was involved with his boyfriend Sid. Veer was then attracted to Ichcha by her pleasant beauty and simplicity. Both the family agreed for the marriage of Veer and Ichcha. When Tapasya realized that Ichcha was going to be the wife of such a rich man she changed her mind and decided to marry Veer. She compelled Ichcha to give her the wedding cloths by emotionally blackmailing her. As per the custom of Hindu marriage of India the face of both bride and bridegroom are covered during the ceremony, Tapasys was succeeded in her plan. She managed to sell the story that Ichcha denied to marry Veer at the last moment and she had done this to save the prestige of both the family. The story was well digested by everybody except Veer; he did not accept Tapasya and declared that he would divorce her and Marry Ichcha. But Ichcha accepted it as her destiny and decided not do anything by which her sister would be unhappy.

By this time another new character was introduced in to the show. Vansh, a drug addict and the elder brother of Veer came closer to Ichcha when he was being treated in a recovery center. Ichcha was coming regularly at that hospital to see one of her student who was also a drug addict and being treated there. Vansh and Paras, the student of Ichcha was good friends in spite of their age difference. Ichcha requested Vansh to look after Paras during her absence in the hospital and Vansh accepted that responsibility gladly although he could save Paras when he died by over dozing of drug.

When Tapasya came to know that Vansh was attracted to Ichcha, she managed to convince both the family and let the marriage of Vansh and Ichcha happen so that she would get acceptance of Veer.  Till date Tapasya have not succeeded to be accepted by Veer.

Viewer’s Opinion

This Indian TV serial Uttaran has everything like drama, emotion, suspense, conspiracy and entertainment which are required for popularizing a show and the producers have succeeded in that also. But still a lot of sensible viewers have shown their distress due to the prolonged success of the negative characters.  According to them it sends wrong signal to the society.


The photographs of the artists of Uttaran have been collected from other websites.

Serial is OK. But the intrension of Director is still confussive. Both couples are unhappy. They are not trying to go to happiness. Never ending episode. At present What the director wants to tell is still not known. Totally it is a drama.

Hi geeta, thank you for your visit to my hub and also for leaving such a thoughtful comment on it. Yes I do agree with you, the character of Tapasys has been drawn as a very peculiar and cruel girl! The one sided success of this negative character sometimes annoyed the audience!

i started liking it when i saw that it is getting over and end is also very nice. tappo acted really good. she deserves for the best roles in bollywood as well as hollywood.

Yes sheetal, I agree with you. Rashmi Desai deserve a role in Indian cinema.

shira 6 years ago

Its high time this serial was given a conclusion. Rashmi Desai has almost excelled in her role. The plasticine-faced expression of Tina Dutta - ugh! She certainly needs to go a loooong way to real acting. Please, I hope she can get somebody to dub for her, her squeaky forever forlorn voice is irritating to the hilt. Thank God, the character Vansh is dead. As for the decent Veer, oh, c'mon, be a man and get on with your life and leave both the dames to their devices. Return to USA. Neither dame deserves you. Both have cheated you. That's it. Thank you for the time taken to read this.

Thanks shira for your in-depth analysis of the characters. And I agree with most of your opinions, only I would like to add that the actor and actresses are the puppets only, the real player is the script writer and the director! Thanks again for your comments!

Thank you ria for your reading and comment! I also agree with you that the serials should show the real picture of the society, but the fact is that the directors now a days don't think for the quality of the story. Even sometimes you would find that there is no story! When the serial lost its path in the midway they want suggestion from the public!

The only thing the directors and producers of serials care, is the TRP, nothing else.

Thanks guestsoni for your comment, I also support your views, but the directors and producers want to make it complicated so that more people get addicted for an indefinite time!

Heard that Tina Dutta as Ichcha is to be replaced. Really? I do hope so. I am certainly not prejudiced, I must say, she has nice god-given features of face, but it totally lacks feeling or charm. Somewhat 'stand-offish'. Best of luck to her, if she does have any "real" acting talent, elsewhere with improvements.

Actually, I watch this drama only on and off, never regularly. Yes, it is time-pass alright, while the producers are making the best of it at our expense!!!

Enough of Tapasya and her evil work . Enough of manupulation , high voltage drama and jealosuy . Enough of scrifice and betryal. Now i want to see the story of Iccha .Uttaran is the story of Iccha not Tapasya . I know many people would say Tapasya brings TRP. But other shows also have TRP . In Ladoo Ammaji is most famous but Siya has a strong role, her character gets chance to perform , But Uttaran is the story of Iccha , why she is been side-lined. Enough of this negativity . Tina Dutta is a great actress but she never get the chance to perform , her role has never got the significance in the story . in the scene where everyone gets to know about Tapasya's reality we all have been blaming Tina's acting but the director nandita Mehra is so dumb she does not understand the situation and to keep focus on Tapasya she does not give Tina and Iccha good opportunity .

May be Rashmi is a better actress but that does not mean Uttaran's main importance should be given to her character . Rashmi has done many Bhojpuri films and other 2 show before this , she is older than Tina , It is normal her to be better , But Tina dutta is bengali , being bengali i know bengalis have problem with their hindi . still she is so good , she has not done many work like Rashmi and if she does not get the chance how will she improve. I really want to see more of Iccha .But not as a victim of Tapasya . I am fed up with this show . Now high time they should start showing the show from Iccha's point of view. Her pain , her love , her other emotions than just friendship and torture . I want to see more of Tine . She is so sweet and sophisticated (i used it as she looks great in other events also take Boogi Woogie and othar Awards). I t is injustice to her and her character Iccha for becoming a supporting character .. CVs stop being partial ..what do u all think please join me in this discussion

Thanks pria for your very long and sincere analysis of this serial! I totally agree with you that Uttaran is a story of "Ichhha", a poor girl who lives from the left-out of rich people. And I also believe that now this serial is deviating from its goal!

I hope that the producer and director could feel the feelings of the audience and try to make this serial a really good one!

how stupid dadi and tapasys can be, They want to get veer and look and the ploting they have made of such a lie which cannot be hidden. it is so ridiculous. however we are waiting for the episode when the blatabt lie will be brought out by veer or thakur and would love to see the reaction of thakur. yet another deceipt by his loving daughter.

tina dutta is sooo horrible. she is poor in all the departments.dailogues--poor,hindi--poor, looks--average,figure--horrible,acting--more horrible,expressions--even more horrible BUT BUT-- she is the lead,she has both the heroes,and has got best actress last year for what--only god knows.resigned thrice again came back -IS QUITE A TANTRUM QUEEN--really untolerable---waiting for her exit from the show.

radha 6 years ago

it is surprising to hear the views of mai, she could so easily forgive tapasya , who has ruined both her sons. Perhaps the Director could have thought something else which is more practical. We are little sick of these false pregnancy drMAS IN DAILY SERIALS. Remember Mandira in saas bhi.....

However , it will be so stupid and unreal tobring taps into Bundela household.

Or may be the Director can bring her into Bundela house and unveil her bad thoughts thro' Veer, bcoz he is the only person who appears to know the real taps.

It'll be so thriling to see Veer unveiling Tapasya's dirty plots again. This time please make everybody see how cruel tapasya and Naani are. either by somebody hearing their plot of false pegancy, or veer investigating medical reports, after doubting taps's behaviour.

What a stupid serial. Pure indian drama for the women but now these types of serials should be stopped...

Varsha 6 years ago

The creative personnel and the director of this serial are crazy. If they are so obssessed with Tapasya, let them see that they are brought together like they are in real life. It is boring to see that over make-up Naani and dramatic Tapasya on a day-to-day basis. It is the worst serial ever made. Ekta Kapoor's serials are far better than this one.

Uttaran is dragging now. The director does not know where to stop. One woman is suffering and the wicked one is getting everything.Veer turns out to be a mediocre man delighted to see his baby and forgets Iccha. Can't the director show Iccha getting a normal life? The wicked should be punished if not in reality atleast in serial.

Manish Maheshwari 6 years ago

starting was very goods atleast 2 years but now it is totally fake and time wasting because Negative characther always win and So many episodes not digastive. Earlier we show that In Laddu who will mix Oil, You can mixed Ghee only but Nani of Tapasya asking that I told to Ichha for Mixing Oil in Laddu. its totally indigastive situation.

One of the most boring serials, with no proper direction of story, weak characters, too loud a music (or should I say a mixture of copying various sounds). Characters not only have weak picturasitaion but weak, unnatural reaction times and ineffective dialogue delivery. This is why the music is loud. As someone has written it surely sends wrong signals of the society we are living in. In fact it is totally 'Uttaraoed' from society.

alok 6 years ago

Unrealistic serial. Long back icha won Rs. 50 lacs. Granny lost - then director forgot. Now kaju was stolen by brother in law - director forgot about kaju. There is no link. Very poor story line. Everybody is playing with the emotion of icha and damini and get away with it. Even veer seems to be uneducated character in the serial who can't understand the ploy. It is high time, we should forget the channel at 10 pm.



UTTARAN... one of the greatest serials i have come through in my life... the characters they are showing is very much needed for this society... i love tapasya nd granny character.. also the acting by granny is very realistic... i want the serial to continue for many years... so plz don't stop this serial.. :( sum idiots 1ly will say this to stop this serial... plz ignore those stupids...

Baap re this serial is taking too long. I want Veer and Iccha scenes. Who the hell Tapasya and Granny want to sto these scenes??? Veer is the hero of this serial and Iccha is hero-in of this serial. So I need their scenes. Tapasya and Granny are only villains of this serial. No need of Tappu or nani's scenes.

WOULD REQUEST SOME ONE SHOULD SHOW THIS COMMENT TO THE DIRECTOR & STORY WRITER OF THIS SERIAL. NOW PEOPLE ARE STARTED HATING THIS WORST,HOPELESS, Z GRADE, 3RD CLASS,HORRIBLE,NON SENSE,BLEADY F----- A-----E SERIAL. Pls end this serial as this is causing so much irritation just to make money the director is not ending this irritating and horrible hopeless and most hated serial.

Ina Aggarwal 5 years ago

hi this serial has become too much boring, nothing good is being shown in this serial, icha is also at same place and tapasya too and there nani stil doing bad things. well now we are loosing interest in watching this serial as the director of this serial is just dragging, now ichha child is disappeared horrible thing, i guess the director is not knowing how to do happy ending, serials which keep on dragging like this for long time doesn't make public happy.

It should now be ended, as it making us feel so much bored. Its a useless serial now, and now my family members also dont like watching. Please remove this serial.

Jhilmil 5 years ago

How stupid can it get? So Veer did not question the hospital as to how a healthy living baby could die without a reason? Anyone would have sued the authorities. They are showing this is how irresponsible the hospital staff of India's best hospitals are. There's no security, no accountability, people get bribed at a click of a finger. Wow! we allow that slap on our face. This is insulting viewer's common sense and intelligence.

Nw this is gettin really shit!!! director plzz end diss serial in a happy ending PLZZZZZZZZZZ!!!u always create highly illogical scenarioes!!!! like we r living in 16th century huh

SDG 5 years ago

Please do some research. A baby dies and the family goes home without taking the body! One look at the wrong dead baby and they would know a swap has taken place. On the other hand, Mukta is taken from the roadside and brought up by Ichcha! You cannot just take a baby like that! There are formalities to be made!! And Tapasya brings another abandoned baby home!! Babies are not free gifts!


I think script witer forgot to put SALT in this script. Scrpt is not very much strong one. Ichha giving milk to someone child its impact badly to the society.

So kindly stop this episode. and kindly enter somethink so that some one can learn something from this serial.

This is MENTAL Serial.

Why is Meethi suddenly behaving like such a saint when all the problems are of her making.And what kind of affection is Akash shown to be having for someone who behaves so silly.He should dump her and the story should end soon-it is dragging too much.
