Hindi TV Serial – Housewife Hai…Sab Jaanti Hai – Light hearted look at a housewife in a joint family

Serials in the past (or even now) show problems where women in the house do not get enough education, or are looked down upon if they try to get a job. There are even serials shown where the husband feels that his wife is threatening his ability to earn for the family if the wife also wants to go and work. Once in a while a serial comes in that threatens to turn this whole thing around, such as this new serial on Zee called “Housewife Hai…Sab Jaanti Hai”. This is the story of a joint family, run by the strong mother of the house, played by Himani Shivpuri. She has a number of sons, some of them adult, and hence, with the recent marriage, she has a new daughter-in-law, Sona, who would be earning the precious amount of Rs. 40,000 per month.
So, out of the 4 daughter in laws, Sona would earn the highest, and the only one who does not get as much respect as the others is Neelam bahu, who is a housewife and does not earn any money for the house. As a result, she has very little respect from the mother-in-law, and consequently from the others in the house, and does all the household work, being put under pressure every day to ensure that all the household work gets done. She has accepted this, with even her own husband not giving her much respect.
And then comes in the new bahu, earning an amount larger than the other bahus, and they feel that their position will be threatened. And then comes a shocker, with Sona stating that she will give up her job and work as a housewife in the house. Her mother-in-law is shocked, enough that it could have probably given her a heart attack; and then she decides to put pressure on preventing Sona from going ahead on her ridiculous idea.
First pressure is put on the police inspector Kanhaiya, who is the young son and also the husband of Sona, but Sona is mostly able to wrap him around her little finger, and he does not really do what his mother expected him to do. So, the other strategy is to show Sona what the housewife will need to do, especially when there is no gas in the house; in this case Sona gets helped by 2 other bahus since they would like her to not work and stay in the house in order to retain their positions of respect; when this gets to be known to the mother-in-law, she punishes those 2 bahus for their help.
