Pandya Store Hit or Flop: How is Star Plus Pandya Store compared to Vijay TV Pandian Stores?
Launched on 25th January 2021, the Pandya store serial is a remake of the Tamil Show Pandian Stores which aired in 2018.
The Tamil version got suspended in April 2020 due to the Pandemic outbreak but commenced in July 2020 due to high demand.
Pandya Store is the Hindi version launched on Star Plus and Hotstar by Sphere Origins.
Pandya Store stars Krutika Desai, Kinshuk Mahajan, Shiny Doshi, Kanwar Dhillon, Alice Kaushik, Akshay Kharodia, Simran Budharup, and Mohit Parmar.
Sapna Baabul Ka Bidaai fame Kinshuk Mahajan plays the role of Gautam Pandya, while Shiny Doshi plays the lead role of Dhara.
Shiny Doshi gained a lot of popularity through her graceful characters in mythological plays like Swaraswatichandra and Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran and now through her character 'Dhara' Shiny Doshi has managed to rule the audience's heart once again.
The show has gained an immense fan following from the charming Kanwar Dhillon who plays the role of Shiva and his chemistry with Raavi (Alice Kaushik).
The Pandian Stores remake is going well with its TRP rating of 1.5 and the latest hashtag of Shiva and Raavi #ShiVi has gained a lot of popularity on Twitter.
The love story of Shiva and Raavi is gaining immense love and affection from the viewers and has a huge following on social media.
Pandya Store VS Pandian Stores:
Pandian Stores launched in 2018 glued its position as the topmost viewed Tamil show to date and has a TRP of 10.40 on Vijay TV.
The relatability between the story and the cast of Pandian Stores has managed to gather an audience for Pandya Store (Star Plus) with a great TRP.
Pandian Store was also called "The show without any violence and unnecessary drama" in a newspaper article in 2018 reviews.
Dhara is the main character of the Star Plus show Pandya Store who sacrificed a lot to raise her husband's younger brothers Shiva, Dev, and Krish along with managing their store (Pandya Store). Dhara is the one who binds the Pandya family together.
The show reflects the life of Pandyas in Somnath. Their daily life is dependent on their beloved store and only source of income, Pandya Store.
Dhara is married to Gautam, the eldest brother of the Pandya family. Her young brothers-in-law consider her like their mother.
The character of Shiva and Raavi are extremely loved in the Pandya store of Star Plus and their marriage episode created a good TRP.
Unlike other daily soaps, Pandian Stores and Pandya Store is a light-hearted show without any violence, and its audience finds it much more relatable.
Even though the story of the Pandya store is not much different from the Tamil show Pandian Stores but Pandya Store has managed to bring freshness to the Hindi TV industry.
Akshay Karodia was awarded the ITV award for Pandya Store which proves the show is also admired by critics.
The chemistry between the lead Raavi and Shiva has a separate fan base and is growing day by day.
On the other hand, the serial's telecast on Hotstar and Star Plus has given the show Pandya Store a good platform.
Pandya Store Hit or Flop: Final Verdict
With the changed look of Shiva, the audience is going head over heels after watching their favourite character getting a new makeover and has received a TRP of 1.5.
The audience is appreciating the chemistry between Raavi and Shiva and has become one of the favourite shows of Star Plus.
With the ongoing success of the show, it declares Pandya Store as a hit on the TRP scoreboard.
However, Pandya Store has to work a little harder because of the legacy of the show from Tamil Pandian Stores to attract more viewers.
Overall, Pandya Store is a good family drama with a light-hearted approach which makes it binge-worthy.
