Indian TV Serial Subarnolata Based On Story of AshaPurna Devi

Updated on March 20, 2013

Subarnolata is a Bengali TV serial aired by Zee Bangla TV channel. The story of Subarnolata is based on a famous novel named Subarnolata , the second volume of the eminent trilogy written by legendary Bengali writer Ashapurna Devi . The first volume was Pratham Prutishruti which was awarded by the Jnanpeeth Award in 1976. The third volume was Bakul Katha .

The trilogy is neither a story of some imaginary characters nor the characters are historical; they were very much there, might me with some other names. In face the writer captured the moments of that time and her own life has also been reflected through this trilogy. Subarnolata and her mother Satyabati were actually the symbol of all the helpless imprisoned women of that time and trilogy is the silent cry of their soul.

The writer Ashapurna Devi

Ashapurna Devi was born on 8 January, 1909, at her maternal uncle’s place at Potoldanga in North Calcutta. Her family was extremely conservative and her grandmother was a blind supporter of old customs and conservative ideals. Due to this the female children of the house were not allowed to go to school. Ashapurna used to listen to the readings of her brothers sitting opposite to them and that was how she learnt the alphabets. Her mother Sarola Sundari came from a very enlightened family and was a great book lover. It was her intensive thirst for reading classics and story books which was transmitted to Ashapurna in her early age.

Ashapurna Devi and her sisters used to compete with each other by composing and reciting poems. Ashapurna sent a poem to Sishu Sathi, a magazine for the children and her first poem “Bairer Dak” (The Call from the Outside) was published in the year 1922 when she was only 13.

Ashapurna Devi wrote 242 novels and novelettes, 62 books for children and over 3000 short stories. She was awarded by several prestigious awards during her lifespan and died on 13 July, 1995.

The TV Serial

This TV serial is not like other soap opera which are normally aired by TV channels of India. It is based on a famous novel and has very little scope for the producers to manipulate the story on the name of popularity.

The central character is Subarnolata who was deceived from education and was married at the age of nine against the will of her mother. Satyabati, the mother of Subarnolata left home and started living with her father, after this marriage which was occurred without her knowledge.

The role of young Subarnolata is being played by a cute little girl named Ipsita Mukherjee. It is expected that she would be replaced by an elder woman after some episodes, but till now she is doing really brilliant acting.

The role of Satyabati is being played by a beautiful and much experienced TV actress Ananya Chatterjee. Another important character of this serial is Moktokeshi, the dominant mother in law of Subarnolata which has been played by the famous Bengali Movie actress Sabitri Chatterjee.

All other characters were being played by the TV and theater artists and all of them are doing very well.

      Tkumah, thank you for your comment! Ashapurna Devi is a different type of writer, she has never gone to school and now her books are read in the course of Masters degree! Subarnolata is actually the reflection of her own life!
