Meghana. A 21 year old character played by an even younger girl. Vinadaaniki areyy chinna pilla kada ani anipinche age. Chinna pillalaki pelli enti, husband issues enti, life issues enti ani ee series start ainappudu nunchi question chese vallu chala mandhi. BUT oh my my. How beautifully did that character play out. A normal middle class girl who got married and wants a beautiful life.
Meghana was a character that was shaped out to be literally every Indian girl next door. Every Telugu ammayi, to be precise. One of the reasons the show was a huge talk is because of its total connect to the reality. Almost prathi Telugu ammayi anubhavaalu anukunta ivvi. 6 episodes lo at least okka situation lo aina prathi ammayi ki, areyy this is so my life ani anipinche untadhi.
Dad’s little princess. A term that was memefied long ago. But to be honest, almost prati ammayi valla nanna princess ey. Nanna pelli cheskomannaru, cheseskundhi. Enduku? Force chesara? Ledhe. Nanna choice midha nammakam. Manaki em kavalo mana kanna nannake correct ga telusu, nanna decision aitey right ey untadhi ane dhairyam. Irrespective of if that is what we want, we trust what our dads choose for us. Because, we are indeed ‘Nanna kuchi’.
Cooking mana valla kadhamma
Korean drama continuous ga binge watch cheyyamantara cheppandi. Chesestha. One night whole season fasak. Left hand little finger pani adhi. But vanta. Ammo chala kastham andi. Bed coffee amma isthey kaani legamu inka husband office elle lopu, lunch box cheyyadama. Edo mood bagundi konni days manage cheyyagaltam amma maximum.
Swachamaina paala laanti clear thoughts
Almost 30 year old Prudhvi ki kuda clarity of thoughts and clarity of reasoning ledhu ane vishayam chustamu. Most people think age tho maturity osthadhi, oka ammayi pelli tana kanna ekkuva age abbayi tho avthe baguntadhi ani. But Meghana thought like a gem. She knew why she married Prudhvi. She knew how to stand by her decisions. WHAT A GEM!
The most allari pilla
Prudhvi ni vaalla nanna deggara book cheyyadam nunchi tanani kopam ga bedirinchadam daaka, anni cheseyadame. Asalu ee factor ki age ki sambandham ey ledhu mastaru.. Oka 30 40 years aina, ee allari taggedhe ledhu.
A solution to every problem
Office lo pelli aindi ani cheppakunda undadaniki Prudhvi deggara 100 reasons untey, vaati anniti solutions Meghana deggara undhi. Vasu akka deggara Meghana future inka tana choices midha point cheyyadaniki reasons untey, Meghana deggara vaati anniti answer undhi. Endo gottam gaadu dorikadu, pelli cheskundham ani pelli cheskoledhu ane clarity undhi.
A mix of all millennial things and telugu tanam
Manaki varsham padi nappudu BTS vintu, snap pettadam, Horlicks tinadam ishtam inka asalu bed midha mottam mallepulu untey, vaati midha padukovadam experience cheyyadam kuda anthe ishtam. They say, we can be either this or that ani, but like Meghana, we all are people that prefer taking the middle road.
Mana partner mana mind kharab chese daridramaina penta chesinappudu, valla midha chala kopam raavadam sahajam. Kaani vallu ala please please please sorry sorry ani chepthu untey, edo chinna sadistic anandam. Enduku ani adigitey maaku kuda pedda idea ledhu gurugaaru. Edo just sometimes alaaa…
Edhi unchukomu amma, tirigi ichesthamu
Lekapote laavu aipotam mari… Chinna pilla chinna pilla ani Pruthvi antunte, Meghana ki entha chiraku inka kopam ochindho… Kani manam ilanti vishayalu odilesthama enti? Vaddi tho saha tirigi icheyali gaa. Inka next time nunchi uncle uncle anadam modalettesindi. Ee revenge mission lo aina oka pinch of sarcasm esthey aa kick ey verabha.
Life lo ey relationship aina, we try our best to make it work. Meghana was also as new to the whole marriage set up just like Prudhvi. Kaani Prudhvi entha freak out aina, tanu maatram tana marriage ni work cheyyadaniki anni try chesindi.
Standing up for herself
‘Kalisi unnappidi evvariki upayogam lekapote, vidipoinappudu evariki nashtam kuda undadhu’
Chala normal gaa cheppesindi Meghana. But that one line had one huge impact. That was her taking a stand for herself. Even though she loved Prudhvi with all her heart, prema inka future leni pelli lo nenu undanu ani gattiga cheppesindi. Societal obligations tho chala mandhi tiskoni step, Meghana tiskundi.
To NOT KNOW phase
We’ve all been there. But of course girls have it the hard way always. Maa ammailaki future midha clarity lekapote pelli cheseyandi ane answer osthadhi. Kaani pelli tarvata kuda ade question osthadi. ‘Ippude kadha ni wife aiyyanu, chuddam next ento.’ It is okay to be in that phase. We’ll figure it out in our own pace ane dhairyam ichindi.
The last scene
THE SCENE. THE LIFE. Ala aa bathroom lo kurchoni almost prati ammayi life story cheppesindi. Amma nanna valla choices aina apudapudu wrong undochu kaani vaalla intentions eppudu wrong undavu ani cheppesindhi. Almost chala ammayila life lo decisions vallali undavu ani cheppesindhi. Mana life lo decision making ela nadustadho cheppesindi. Mana compromises, mana choices, mana thought processes, mana life… Mottam cheppesindhi. Edipinchesindhi. And all of us, edichesam. Cheppina prathi maata, prathi ammayi rewind chesi malli chusindi. How correct was it.
Asalu ee references chusi em ardham kaaledha? Inka late enduku.. Go over to the Girl Formula YouTube was watch the creation of the show.
