Family dramas that we have witnessed over the years, revolve around a typical set of characters. In these stories mostly, there is a mother-in-law who dominates the household and the daughter-in-law, and father-in-law who are just present. But this notion of a typical story is shattered by Zee Tamil’s Oru Oorula Oru Rajakumari. The show also breaks the stereotype of the character of a father-in-law with the strong presence of Parivendharan, a character played by the actor Prabhakaran Chandran.
Watch Parivendharan in Oru Oorula Oru Rajakumari below:
Parivendharan as a character stands out tall and strong amongst the other characters of the show. In fact, he brings in some of the crucial twists in the plot of the story, like the life-changing decision for Iniyan where he fixes his marriage with Rasathi. This decision was not just a startling change for Iniyan but it also shifts the course of the story to another level and adds layers of complexities to the plot.
Also, his love for Rasathi and persistent attempts to make her life better is refreshing to see. The consistency with which he tries to make Iniyan realise his mistakes and the trust that he places in Rasathi’s integrity is worth an applause. If you are an ardent viewer of the show you would also notice that often Parivendharan is the final voice of the household which is surprising since his wife Mangai is also an equally strong character.
Surprisingly, this uniqueness of Prabhakaran’s character was noticed by his followers and one of them decided to highlight it in a message sent to on his Instagram account. Which he posted to his Instagram page.
So, what do you think? Is Parivendharan really a different father-in-law? Share your thoughts in the section below.
