Indian Television has been riddled with saas bahu dramas and cliché drama plots since long but times seems to be changing steadily with more and more realistic dramas being launched on GECs. One such upcoming TV drama to be launched on Star Plus is Nikhil Advani’s 1999 Kargil war based show ‘P.O.W. Bandi Yuddh Ke!’. This show tells the story of two missing in action soldiers who return home after 17 years. Purab Kohli and Satyadeep Mishra will potray the roles of P.O.Ws.
Earlier P.O.W- Bandi Yuddh Ke! was touted to be the copy of U.S based show ‘Homeland’, however director Nikhil Advani cleared the rumours by confirming that the show is an Indian adaptation of Israeli TV show ‘Hatufim’ on prisoners of war. The show, which will be aired on Star Plus will be a 125 episode series beginning on 14 October. Apart from Purab Kohli and Satyadeep Mishra it also features Sandhya Mridul and Amrita Puri in pivotal roles.
