Updated on January 27, 2014

Balika Vadhu is a Color Television production based on the theme of child marriage. The show revolves around a rich family of rural Rajasthan whose head is Kalyani Devi. She is a widow having two sons Vasant and Bhairav, Vasant’s first wife died before the delivery of their first child. After that he married a much younger girl Gehna. Sumitra is the wife of Bhairav and they have two children Jagdish a boy and Suguna a girl. The show Balika Vadhu is full of drama; new characters are introduced frequently with a new twist in the story. It seems that the producers are planning to make it a never ending soap opera.

Brief Introduction To The Characters

Kalyani Devi – the central character of the story is a widow and the head of the family. She is a very strong and egoist lady who is ready to fight with almost anyone and anything whoever comes to eye on her family.

Then Gehna came to his life as his second wife but due to the huge age difference Gehna denied to accept Vasant and tried to keep herself away from her husband which she could not succeed. She was also irritated with the ill behavior of Kalyani Devi and never tried to hide her disgrace. Vasant used to take his mother’s side initially but later on knowing that Gehna was carrying his child, his behavior started being soften towards Gehna.

Bhairav – the secondson (actually the only son) of Kalyani Devi is a man of strong personality andidealism.

Suguna – the daughter of Bhairav and Sumitra who is the most suffered character of the show. Her first husband Pratap died in a fight with a gang of bandits when he was coming for the ritual after which he could take his wife home for the first time. At that time Suguna was carrying the child of Pratap which was not accepted by the law of the society. Kalyani Devi was furious and tried her best to abort the child but could not do so for the resistance of Bhairav. Suguna was sent to a lonely area of the house; forced to live a tough life of a widow and literally isolated her from the society.  But soon the bad days of Suguna ended as she was married with Shyam, a learned young man from a neighborhood family.

      What message is the serial giving?Satchi 's character is terribly silly and even her educated brother is victimising his wife and jagdish when only the stupidity of satchi is to blame.
