The tale of a single mother who singlehandedly strives towards ensuring success of her three daughters forms the crux of the series. Emotionally-charged, yet bringing out the nuances of a strong woman, Kudumbashree Sharada has successfully struck a chord with the family audience for the narration of a tale of a woman who would not be bogged down by the challenges that keep arising before her. Kudumbashree Sharada is inspired by the hugely successful Kudumbashree initiative, which is a poverty eradication and women empowerment programme of the Kerala Government.
While Shalini, Sharada’s second daughter played by the pretty Mersheena Neenu, is a bold confident girl with IAS aspirations, the eldest daughter Sharika (played by Devika) is a mix of logical and emotional in her approach towards life. The youngest daughter Shyama (played by Sreelakshmi) is a student and Kabaddi player who dreams small so as to stay happy. Amrita plays the antagonist Rajeshwari, who is a jealous woman trying to create problems in the closely knit family of Kudumbashree Sharada. Vishnu, played by Prabhin, plays the male lead. Kudumbashree Sharada has been wholeheartedly accepted by the family audience, and therein lies its success.
