‘Doli Armaanon Ki’ – Will this Doli ever take off?

Doli armaano ki

Urmi (Neha Marda) and her family are the typical small towners from the city of Jhansi. A simple girl with dreams of a happy marriage, the story starts with Urmi’s wedding preparations as she is all set to marry Samrat (Mohit Malik) who comes from one of the prestigious families in Jhansi. Shown to be an arrogant boy, Samrat who stays with his parents, elder brother and bhabhi doesn’t think twice before insulting them. He is the only one who takes care of the vast hotel business that the family runs and is always shown to be busy.

His best friend Ishaan (Siddharth Arora) who has come to stay with him and attend the wedding is exact opposite of Samrat. He is shown to be a sensible, caring person with his manners in place. Ishaan in fact tries to knock sense into Samrat but in vain. Amidst all this is Urmi’s cousin, a strong headed girl, Trisha (Snigdha Srivastav) has an unpleasant encounter with Samrat and not knowing that he is in fact her cousin’s fiance. When she meets him at Urmi’s place she is shocked to know that her cousin is going to marry him in few days. She tries to tell this to Urmi but cannot do it.

Samrat in his ego refuses to get married to Urmi and while everyone is shocked with his decision, Trisha is happy about it and says so to Samrat too. Samrat in a bid to teach Trisha a lesson goes to Urmi’s house and tells them that he is ready for the marriage without giving them any reason for his behavior. Even as everyone is happy again, Samrat’s mother who is always taking his side demands for some gifts, etc from Urmi’s side which puts Urmi’s family in shock again as they now have to raise money for it. Urmi
realizing the pressure that her family is going through calls Samrat and tells him that she cannot marry him and cancels the wedding. Samrat is wild with anger but Urmi is serious about her decision.

What works – 

The entire small town setting, huge family, big houses, wedding situation will all work wonders for people who are fans of such shows. Basically, it is targeted at the interiors since the show talks about women’s responsibilities, patience, how she should win her husband’s heart, etc.

The story tries to balance the bad behavior of Samrat and his mother with the sweet natured Urmi and likeable Ishaan along with Trisha who is shown to be a modern, no – nonsense girl who cannot suffer injustice….
