Uttaran (English: Discarded, Worn Out, Throw Away / Hindi: उतरन) is an Indian soap opera that aired on Colors TV on weeknights.[3][4][5]

The show starred Tina Dutta in the lead role of Ichha.[6][7] It is one of the longest television series by episode count and ran originally from 2008 to 2015.[2] This series was dubbed into Tamil as Sindhu Bhairavi on Raj TV.


Uttaran follows two friends of different economic backgrounds: Ichcha (Tina Dutta) a sweet maidservant's daughter and Tapasya (Rashmi Desai) child of a wealthy landlord . Ichha is kind, caring and helpful and Tapasya is spoilt, selfish and jealous.

The story set in Mumbai starts when Ichha and Tapasya become best friends by hanging out all the time, then Tapasya's haughty maternal grandmother Nani (Pratima Kazmi) arrives and manipulates Tapasya to stop being friends with Ichha because she's daughter of their maidservant Damini (Vaishali Thakkar). Tapasya starts becoming jealous and horrible to Ichha when her parents start to love Ichha as their own daughter. Tapasya's parents starts loving Ichcha after it is revealed that Jogi Thakur is unintentionally responsible for Ichcha's father's death. Tapasya intentionally abandons her in a forest on a school trip and her parents decide to put her in boarding school as a punishment, however she apologises to Ichha and they become best friends again.

After 12 years both girls grow up and a rich man named Veer (Nandish Sandhu) comes to visit the mansion, and then he falls in love with Ichha, but then Tapasya starts flirting with him but he rejects her. Veer and Ichha plan to get married but then Tapasya turns psychotic in her jealous infused rage and cuts herself up and threatens suicide to Ichha and her mother Damini if she doesn't have Veer for herself. Ichha then lets Tapasya pretend to be her on the wedding covered under a veil. When everyone finds out Tapasya's father gets into hospital, she gets thrown out of Veer's house. Ichha marries Vansh (Rohit Khurana): Veer's elder brother, who suffers from drug addiction, to save him. When Vansh finds out about Tapasya's true colours, he kills himself in front of her in an emotional rage. She flees but not before getting pregnant from an affair with businessman Raghuvendra Pratap Rathore (Gaurav Chopra). Her daughter Mukta is born whom she abandons in desperation. The kid is raised by Veer and Ichha and then by her maternal grandparents. Ichha and Veer finally get married and their children Yuvraj and Meethi are born. Ichha saves Veer from a cruel man named Avinash who wants to take revenge on the latter and Ichha for winning the custodian rights over Avinash's adopted son Kanha and also his father's property by murdering him and is sent to prison.

After 18 years Meethi (Tina Dutta) Ichha's daughter who looks just like her mother and Mukta (Sreejita De), Tapasya's daughter become best friends just like their mothers. However, they are also involved in a love triangle and Mukta ends up marrying Meethi's brother Yuvraj. Ichha reunites with her family but is hated by Yuvraj who had grown up to be spoilt and selfish and blames his mother for abandoning him (manipulated by his fraternal grandmother Gunvanti who didn't like Ichha). Eventually, he is jailed after an attempt of molesting his wife. Mukta marries Vishnu (Ajay Chaudhary) a blue-collar labourer for love and they try to cope up with their economic problems. Meanwhile Meethi marries rich Akash (Mrunal Jain) but has to cope up with his hostile family. Tapasya also returns, reunites with Ichha and also with Mukta's father Rathore. Soon after Meethi's marriage, Ichha sacrifices her life to save Tapasya, who actually ended up in a life-threatening situation after saving Ichha. Later, it is revealed that Akash's maternal uncle is the one who killed Avinash, not Ichha. After many twists and turns Meethi finally gets accepted by her in-laws but her dreams are destroyed after having a miscarriage caused by Yuvraj which leaves her infertile. She's banished by her mother-in-law and leaves for Srinagar. Meethi is caught up in a terrorist attack, falls into a river and gets flown across the border to Gilgit. There she is rescued by Aashfaq (Sahel Phull), a simple man who falls in love with her but it is later revealed that his elder brother Asgar (Krip Suri ) was responsible for the attack. Aashfaq helps Meethi escape back to India and bids her a tearful farewell. Finally Akash and Meethi are united. Meethi adopts Akash's illegitimate daughter from his first girlfriend and another girl, who had left an orphan and Nani & Damini reflect the everlasting friendship of Ichha and Tapasya and their daughters.
