Prayashchit - Gunnahon Ke Zakham

Sony Entertainment Television
Show Concept

There have been several crime stories which showcase similar instances such as why the crime was done? What was the real purpose behind it? Who motivated him/her to enter the world of crime? How to identify Crime? But have we ever thought or realized that some crimes are committed unknowingly. We never seem to reason out in such cases and look at the other side of the coin. The truth is not always the same as we see or believe; it is something else.

Prayashchit is a story about victims who offer prayers in expiation for their sins. Very few people have the courage to ask for forgiveness for the crime which they did knowingly or unknowingly, and then begins his journey of self realization where he realizes his wrong doing .. he feels the pressure of guilt in his heart and wants to say sorry.

This show features such people and their stories of ‘wrong doings’, stories of ‘guilt’, stories of being ‘sorry’. Prayashchit is a platform for such real life stories.. stories of confession.. stories of acceptance and stories of saying sorry to the person who suffered and may be get the much needed “Forgiveness”.

The Basic theme of every episode is all about a Person who has done something wrong in his life, which has affected somebody’s life and is now guilty and wants to confess his wrong doing and pleads for FORGIVENESS. If the person is not FORGIVEN, then a way of redemption which is very close to the story/case will be an alternate to the whole thing. The narrative will be from the point of view of the Accused/Victim which will cut into recreations at regular intervals. Recreation will be a major portion of the story to make it more massy and appealing. An Anchor will bind this whole story together and will play a major role during the culmination of the episode.

The participant who is on the show will come to terms with a personal guilt by accepting his /her mistake in front of everyone & pledging social / financial commitment. The participant who has been selected to be on the show in accordance with the ‘Giver’ case study. Every ‘Giver’ story is picked up to match ‘Taker’ story.

A real story of forgiveness but will they be forgiven???
