They don’t make serials like Krishnadasi anymore?. It was one of those rare serials which dealt the ancient devadasi system. The serial had a stellar cast of Nalini , Gemini Ganesan , Aravind Akash , Vietnam Veedu Sundaram , Ranjitha and Nagesh. At that time it was very rare for a serial to have such a huge cast. It was all about the rivalary between a Brahmin and a devadasi family. It was fascinating to see Nalini and Vietnam Veedu Sundaram face off against each other. The title song was a huge hit and was composed by D. Imman. This was Imman’s first big break before he became the famous Imman that we know now.
The serial had 359 episodes and was telecast between 14th February 2000 to 25th October 2002 at 7: 30 during the weekdays. The title song was sung by Nithyashree Mahadevan. It was produced and directed by Prabhu Nepaul. It was adapted by Indra Soundar Rajan’s Krishnadasi novel. It was remade in hindi with the same title. The script though had some changes from the Tamil version and was telecast from 2016. This is one of the few Tamil serials to be remade in Hindi. That itself explains the universal popularity and uniqueness of the plot.
