So if SLB is working on a show it has to be an interesting storyline, and it is definitely different, yes the show is based on a novel written by Govardhanram Madhavaram Tripathi, an author from gujrat. Based on the socio - cultural background of early 19th century, the story is based on a Gujarati family, Saraswatichandra - the son of the family is raised by a cruel step-mother and father, with a short lived romance and an interesting climax.
This story was also depicted in a black & white movie starring Nutan and Manish, some of the evergreen songs that the movie had are - 'chandan sa badan chanchal chitvan', 'phool tujhe bheja hai khat mei', main toh bhool chali babul ka desh.
