We’ve all watched films/ shows wherein a character strikes a chord with you and you’re able to relate to it like none other. You have the typical villains, caring husbands, a mother who cannot see beyond the kitchen or the uber rich best friend. But we have a web series where you will connect with every character – doesn’t matter if you’re from a small town of India or a big metropolitan city.
MX Player’s ‘Mannphodganj Ki Binny’ is the story of a 21-year-old Binny – who’s modern and quirky, but with a fully desi swag who dreams of a world outside her restricted life in Mannphodganj. But, her plans to escape to the big city encounter a series of unlikely obstacles.
Let’s go through the people Binny is surrounded with and the characters in her life because you are sure to relate to each one!
‘Ladka Dhundo’ Parents
Meet Brajesh & Kumud Bajpai, Binny’s parents aka the ones who desperately want to get their daughter ‘Binny’ married. Owning a lingerie shop in the small-town of Allahabad, Brajesh Bajpai is a light-hearted family man who leads a content life, with no dreams to chase. On the other hand – Binny’s mother, Kumud is a strict yet understanding mother. Queen of her house, she wants to have all things rich for her daughter. Both Kumud and Brajesh are constantly on the look-out for a suitor for their princess. Now who hasn’t had the tough ‘marriage’ conversation at home?
The Shy Lover
There had to be one! Who can imagine a small-town story without a shy lover? Raja Singh is a law student from Allahabad University who is deeply and madly in love with Binny. The one who is never noticed by her, but is always there for her. Yeah, we’ve all heard of that one.
We always have that someone who we can rely on blindly. In the case of Binny, she has Manjul. A studious, religious, god-fearing, gullible and basically being the best ‘bestie’ Manjul stands by all of Binny’s madness.
Your Dream Boy
Good looking, rich and kind – he’s the boy you’ve always dreamed of. We all have that crush we’re trying to ‘patao’. In Binny’s life – it’s Rahul Pandey. A politician’s son, rich, and spoilt – the supposed perfect bad boy for a good girl like Binny
