Launching on International Women’s Day, ALTBalaji’s much-talked-about show ‘The Married Woman’ has been the talk of the town for all the right reasons.
Going by the tremendous buzz that the intense character posters and inspiring trailer of ‘The Married Woman’ have been generating, it is no wonder that the show is trending at number one position on the IMDb page of ‘Most Anticipated New Indian Movies and Shows’. It has 40.2% of the page views, making for a massive chunk of the total views!
Surpassing the biggest of the names from Bollywood and OTT space, including Mumbai Saga (12.4%), Roohi (12.0%), Bombay Begums (8.7%), Karnan (5.5%), and Sultan (5.4%), the show, featuring the central characters Ridhi Dogra and Monica Dogra along with Imaad Shah, Suhaas Ahuja, Ayesha Raza, Rahul Vora, Divya Seth Shah, and Nadira Babbar has become the most anticipated new Indian movies and shows for all the right reasons.
Based on celebrated author Manju Kapur’s bestseller novel ‘A Married Woman’, the show narrates the beautiful story of Astha and Peeplika. Set in the nineteen nineties, the story revolves around Astha, an ideal wife, daughter-in-law, and a perfect mother; who has everything a woman can hope from her marriage- a responsible husband, in-laws, and two children, yet she feels incomplete as an individual. Breaking the normal society’s norms, she sets out on a journey of self-discovery. Thus ensues the story and the journey of a married woman. Peeplika, on the other hand, is a complete contrast, an artist who’s never been interested in anything the least bit conventional who helps her explore her path on self-discovery.
‘The Married Woman’ is an urban relationship drama about women and their conditioning levied by society and her search to find herself.
Watch the show streaming from 8th March on ALTBalaji!
