Colors Tamil, a Tamil GEC from Viacom18, will launch a fiction show named ‘Bommi B.A, B.L’, which will address deep-rooted prejudice and bias against women. Starting May 3, Bommi B.A, B.L will air at 6:30 pm from Monday to Saturday on Colors Tamil.
Set in pre-independence Calcutta, Bommi B.A., B.L. traces the journey of eight-year-old Bommi (played by Aura Bhatnagar) who is married to a 60-year-old man. But as fate would have it, her life takes a sudden tragic turn. While she becomes prey to social injustice, fate leads her to her husband Anirudh, a London-returned Barrister who wishes to liberalise women and unstrap them from cultural stereotypes. As her husband, Anirudh helps Bommi to get out of this gloomy tradition of social discrimination. This leads them to embark on a journey together where Bommi goes on to become a Barrister and challenges the system with her tough and thought-provoking arguments.
Anup Chandrasekharan, Business Head, Colors Tamil, said, “At Colors Tamil, we are committed to showcasing content that is engaging and thought-provoking. In tune with this, we are delighted to launch Bommi B.A, B.L, which will bring in a whirlwind of change in our social fabric with its unique and bold storyline. With a focus on diverse and engaging content, we are confident that Bommi will become a household favourite instantly.”
