MUMBAI—‘Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus’ is not just a famous book title but has now become a cliché and a catchphrase that illustrates the behavioral differences between men and women. The two genders can be poles apart in the way they think or emote.

Sony SAB’s new show “Saat Phero Ki Hera Pherie” addresses this phenomenon and showcases the various hilarious situations that arise in the daily lives of married couples due to gender differences. Launching on Feb. 27, and set in suburban Mumbai, the plot revolves around the lives of two neighbors - the Tandons and the Desais.

Bhupi Tandon, a man in his fifties, has his travel agency. He strongly believes that the man is the boss of the house and so loves to dominate over his wife. While he is also a jovial and kind-hearted person who loves his wife, he takes advantage of being the patriarchal head of the family. Making a comeback in the role of Bhupi is veteran, Shekhar Suman.

Bhupi’s wife, Neetu, is a woman seeped in traditional Indian values. A loving mother and a caring wife, she follows all religious rituals and spends most of her day in the kitchen dishing out delicious fare for her family. Swati Shah is playing Neetu.

Their neighbors are a young married couple – Parimal and Rupal Desai. Parimal, played by Amit Mistry, is a complete opposite of Bhupi, a henpecked and a wife-fearing man. He is a manager at a broking firm and is always entangled in transactions of the stock exchange. Enacted by Ami Trivedi, Rupal comes from a rich upbringing and is constantly buying material comforts to upgrade her lifestyle much to the dismay of her husband, who is always submerged under the EMI burden.

Rupal believes in living life queen-size and is constantly changing her mind and her business ideas. In short, their marriage is a ‘workshop,’ where he ‘works’ and she ‘shops!’

Adding to the fun is 25-year-old Goldie Sharma, who is a hopeless romantic. Played by Kevin Dave, he is single and always ready to mingle. He finds his dream girl in every girl he sees. Goldie also takes advantage of his neighbors’ generosity and depends on them for his daily meals, often borrowing money from them. He calls himself a freelancer, but the truth is that he gets kicked out of any job he gets into, due to his laziness. Being indecisive, he is not exactly a mature, stable guy that girls generally look for and eventually ends up getting dumped by them. Another key character is Chinki, played by Riya Sharma.

Neeraj Vyas, senior executive vice-president and head of SAB, said, “True to SAB’s brand promise of ‘Haste Raho India (keep laughing, India),’ our new offering presents a humorous take on how life-partners face and manage gender roles and inter-relationship differences. The content is very refreshing and contemporary. The show features a fabulous ensemble of fine actors with some amazing comic timing.”
