Kolkata, Oct 26 : “One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world”.
Although the revolutionary quote has been a guidance for many, yet there are many, especially the girl child, who are still deprived of this fundamental right. To address this societal issue, Star Jalsha proudly presents yet another “Chalo Paltai” endeavor with their latest offering “Mohor”.
This October, Jalsha promises to take its viewers on an invigorating journey of a brave heart that fights for her rights and dreams. The protagonist Mohor hails from a conservative middle-class family in Jalpaiguri. An exemplary student, she is encouraged by her mother, elder sister and her teacher, to complete her higher education and become a teacher herself. However, her father decides to stop her further studies and marry her off.
The desire to study instills immense courage in Mohor and she runs away to Kolkata with the help of her teacher to pursue her higher studies in a reputed college. In this college, she meets Shankhadeep, a member of the college governing body who leaves no stone unturned to make her life miserable.
Faced with several insurmountable obstacles, Mohor remains undeterred as her desire to complete her studies gives her the strength to overcome all hardships. “Mohor” depicts the inspiring tale of a young girl whose courage defines her path to success. The show is produced by Magic Moments Motion Pictures who have created unparalleled stories of women achievers on Bengali television with iconic shows like Sreemoyee, Ishtikutum, Kusum Dola and many more. Sona Saha and Prateek Sen will be seen essaying the lead roles of Mohor & Shankhadeep in the show.
Speaking on the occasion, Ms Leena Gangopadhyay, Producer& Writer, Mohor said, “From birth till death a girl is deprived of her rights in society at every step in her life. She is deprived of her right to education, right to being healthy and sometimes even her right to live but a girl can fight back for her rights, which she is deprived of. Mohor is the story of one such girl who fights for her own rights, which may be relatable to many girls. In fact all the girls will be able to relate to her story and journey. Mohor believes that her life is her right.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sagnik Ghosh, EVP & Channel Head, Star Jalsha & Jalsha Movies said, “Mohor embodies the belief of Star Jalsha the brand ‘Nije Paltale Shob Paltabey’. The show aims to be a catalyst which endeavours to bring about a change in society, with respect to education for women. Young Mohor is a symbol of grit and determination, who fights for her right to complete her education before getting married. In fact with Mohor, we are starting a campaign of #AmarJibonAmarAdhikar where we are encouraging women to fight for their own rights. We are hopeful that this show will inspire many young women in Bengal to follow their hearts and pursue their dreams.” (UNI)
