New Delhi: Har Mard Ka Dard: (phrase); The fine tact of balancing one’s life between wife and mother. Such is the life of Sumit Walia – much like every married man who is trying to find the right balance between his wife and mother. STAR Plus, India’s leading entertainment channel is set to revolutionize Indian television with Sumit Sambhal Lega – the official adaptation of popular US sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. By revealing a man’s perspective towards married life, the story will lightly touch upon Har Mard Ka Dard all the while maintaining its humor quotient. Starting 31st August at 10PM, STAR Plus promises to take the entire family on a laugh riot, as it dives into the sitcom genre.
Sumit Sambhal Lega is the story of Sumit Walia, a sports journalist who will constantly find himself in a tug-of-war between his wife, Maya and his mother Dolly. The show will throw light on a married man’s predicament of managing multiple relationships post marriage. Starring Namit Das as the protagonist Sumit, Manasi Parekh Gohil will be making a comeback to small screen with her portrayal of Maya and veteran actress Bharati Achrekar will be seen essaying the role of Dolly Walia. Noted actor Satish Kaushik will be seen as Jasbir Walia, Sumit’s retired father while Vikram Kochar will be seen as Rajneesh, Sumit’s insecure older brother. The show will revolve around the Walia family and how Sumit finds himself in situations that are sticky and twisted, yet somehow manages to escape them in a comical way.
Sumit Sambhal Lega is produced by SJ’s Creative Unit and has brought together some of the best talents of the entertainment industry. With Steve Skrovan, writer and co-producer of the original series, overseeing the entire creative process, the show has stayed true to its nature and kept alive the hilarity surrounding everyday affairs. Filmmaker Shashant Shah, who has previously directed Bollywood movies like Dasvidanya and Chalo Dilli, along with comedian Deven Bhojani and Actor Parmeet Sethi, have directed the entire series keeping in mind the comedy that accompanies daily life situations.
In a bid to stay true to the DNA of a sitcom, STAR Plus has adopted some of the best practices from Hollywood, including the adoption of Writer’s Room – a platform where all the writers come together and brainstorm to create a masterpiece.
