TV Review: “Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kahaa” Daily Soap Opera on Colors

© Harish Jharia 

A new TV serial titled “Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kahaa” is currently being telecast on Colors TV Channel (India). I have been watching it since the beginning of the series and liked it because of the following reasons:
  1. The serial has a freshly discovered theme, based on innocent relations between a young single mother of two children and a young crime reporter of a newspaper. 
  2. The serial has characters of common middle class families shown in simple outfits and without multilayer heavy makeup and heavy excessive jewelry.
  3. The viewers of all the intellectual levels are expected to like the serial. 
  4. The location and sets of the serial also look natural and realistic those convey the real scale and realistic look of the ongoing life and environment.   
  5. The direction, cinematography and editing of the episodes are excellent and different from the ongoing monotonous way of showing close-ups of the characters in action  in the shots, followed by slideshows of other characters present in the scenes… in other TV shows.
  6. The main attraction of the serial is that the story moves ahead in each episode and the deliberate stagnations are avoided.
The meaning of the title “Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kahaa” is “Neither you spoke… nor did I say anything” and so is the way the relations between Megha (Aakanksha Singh) and Mohan (Kunal Karan Kapoor) keep going with mistaken communications. 

Megha is a young single mother in her early twenties with two kids. She is a good looking civilized woman who continues to live with her in-laws, after the death of her husband Amar (Rohit Bharadwaj). Her father-in-law is a soft heartened insurance agent and her mother-in-law a confused housewife. Her husband, a civil engineer, died in a massive accident when a flyover caved in killing him and a dozen plus employees in the debris. The builder took advantage of the death of her husband by accusing him of using substandard material in the construction and held him responsible for the accident and the deaths. 

Mohan, a bachelor in his early twenties is a crime reporter in a leading newspaper. He lives in a rented accommodation in Megha’s neighborhood, along with his mother (Neelu Kohli)and a servant (Dushyant Wagh). Mohan is a carefree, disorganized but hardworking journalist. He collects information about the crimes committed in his area and prepares press reports on his laptop. Incidentally, he is investigating the case of the flyover accident, in which Megha’s husband died and was held responsible for his own death and that of a dozen plus people. 

The story goes on in the city of Indore in Madhya Pradesh state of India. Megha is having a one point agenda in her life and that is fighting for seeking justice for her husband from the court of law. She along with her father-in-law (Anjan Srivastav) is striving hard to prove her husband innocent in the flyover accident case and punish the real culprits. Megha and Mohan continue meeting each other because of their common cause the flyover case and being neighbors. 

The successive episodes showcase frequently changing relations between Megha and Mohan dotted with incidents of comedy, laughter and tragedy. Variety of interesting and decent shots are shown in the episodes with incidents involving other characters like Mohan’s mother and his servant; Megha’s son (Vishesh Bansal) and daughter ‘Nanhi’ (Ashnoor Kaur) and her other family members. 

I recommend… “Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuchh Kahaa” … as a must see TV serial that is expected to provide healthy and decent entertainment for individuals and family members of all ages.
