The extremely popular show titled Viraasat used to be aired on the Star One channel. The serial Viraasat is believed to be one of the biggest television ventures of the B.R. Films and went on air from 12th June in the year 2006. The serial Viraasat in fact gave a tough competition to all the typical 'saans-bahu' flicks that are currently aired on almost all the channels of the small screen.Viraasat was brought in the place of another hugely hit show 'Millie' which was again a story with difference. It was in fact more popular because of the multi-starrer attraction including almost all the popular actors of the telly world Sangeeta Ghosh, Aman Verma, Jayati Bhatia, Amarr Upadhayay, Kiran Kumar, Deepak Quazir and the likes.
The storyline of Viraasat however revolves on the enmity between the two opulent and well-known families, the Lambas and the Kharbandas. However the development of the plot takes a major turn when the two children of the respective families Rahul (played by Rohit Roy) and Priyanka (played by Sangeeta Ghosh) fell head over heels in love with each other and get married on the same day on which Priyanka was supposed to get involved in a wedlock with another man that her family has selected for her. Both Rahul and Priyanka get married in a temple and vowed to end the enmity between their families. When the couple returns back home and their family is taken aback by the intensity of their decisions.
However Rahul's family accepts the couple and blesses them for future. But Rishabh Lamba (played by Aman Verma) cannot accept the alliance from the core of his heart and tries to create problems in the marital life of his brother but fails to succeed at any cost. As the plot develops Priyanka is seen to be giving birth to twins and promises to give one to his childless sister-in-law. Gradually both the families decided to end their enmity on the occasion of Diwali.
Yatin Dang and Arvind Babbal jointly directed the family entertainer Viraasat. The screenplay of the soap is also brilliant and is set in quite flamboyant sets. The development of the Viraasat story is also quite intriguing and never ceases to make the television viewers loose their interests.
According to the Creative Director of Star India Shailija Kejriwal the title song of Viraasat is also well suited to the plot of the soap. It does not come as a surprise to the audience that the soap Viraasat is placed among the top of the ratings chart and comes within the tenth position. Over all this family entertainer is great to watch and such shows will provide some sort of relief from the monotonous saga of the family dramas. Viraasat was also publicized as a soap that would provide beckon to all other television soaps. The small screen audiences expect such great entertainers at frequent intervals and hopefully the makers will cook up something like this in the near future with a new plot full of contrasting twists and turns.
