Help Reliance BIG Home Video releases popular TV serial "Udaan" on DVD
Here's your chance to bring home Udaan, the landmark serial that rocked Indian television when it aired in 1990-'91 as Reliance BIG Home Video has just released the much-acclaimed serial on DVD.

Mumbai, Maharashtra, December 15, 2010 /India PRwire/ -- Here's your chance to bring home Udaan, the landmark serial that rocked Indian television when it aired in 1990-'91 as Reliance BIG Home Video has just released the much-acclaimed serial on DVD. Written and directed by Kaveta Choudhary, Udaan was perhaps the first serial based on women empowerment. It starred stalwart actors, such as Kaveta Chaudhry, Vikram Gokhale, Uttara Bawker, Vijay Mehta, Satish Kaushik and Shekhar Kapoor.

Udaan is inspired by the true story of Kaveta Choudhary's elder sister, Kanchan Choudhary, who after suffering several hardships went to become the first female Director General of Police.

Udaan is the story of a girl named Kalyani Singh who joins the police force with her sheer perseverance and determination. Her father played by Vikram Gokhale loses all his land after it is forcibly taken away from him. A staunch believer of gender equality, she feels immensely neglected when all attention is showered on a boy born in their family who is considered to be the male heir of the family. Kalyani's father tells her she is no less than anybody and should make it her mission to take 'flight' (Udaan) to a respectable position in society. She swears to become a police officer and bring back respect to her family. The poignant story shows how against all odds she battles gender discrimination and various problems before successfully becoming a Police Officer. Shekhar Kapur plays the love interest of Kalyani in the serial.

Critical Acclaim:
Udaan enjoyed immense critical acclaim. The Sunday Observer wrote, "This one is so clean and fresh you want to go down your knees and sob with relief."

Screen wrote, "Udaan the serial that was acclaimed from the very first episode onwards." The Afternoon appreciated the serial saying, "Beautifully shot and very sensitively directed, Udaan is one serial which has you totally glued to your TV screen.

It's been a constant endeavor of BIG Home Video to provide wholesome entertainment not only restricted to films. Udaan DVD is a non-film initiative of BIG Home Video. The company has also released the popular TV series "Malgudi Days" "Tenali Raman" "Little Krishna" & "Tehikat" . BIG Home Video has also just launched Lara Dutta's Yoga DVD.

Sweta Agnihotri, COO, Reliance BIG Home Video has to say, "Udaan is one of the finest Indian serials ever made. The beauty of its strong story is inspirational even today; through the DVD we want to give people a chance to relive this gem."

Udaan is available as a 5-DVD set (Rs.499).
