I watch Mukta, the primetime Kannada serial on ETV regularly. For people whose idea of a soap opera is defined by Ekta Kapoor‘s garish K-series or the tantric-twist Tamil serials and their remakes, T.N. Seetharam‘s Mukta is a balm for the eyes and the mind. Muktha 1 was a serial telecasted in the Kannada language on ETV Kannada. It was directed by T.N. Seetharam, who also acted as a lawyer (as CSP) in the serial. The director aimed to inspire civic awareness and action with stories depicting the fight for justice even against all kinds of bureaucratic and political opposition.

Muktha Muktha was a serial telecasted in the Kannada language on ETV Kannada.
It was directed by T.N. Seetharam, who also acted as a lawyer (as CSP) in the serial. The director aimed to inspire civic awareness and action with stories depicting the fight for justice even against all kinds of bureaucratic and political opposition. Muktha, a word with roots in Sanskrit, means 'reprieve'. The program ended on 12 September 2010. The main theme of this serial was to increase legal awareness among the people. In this serial, well known and renowned Kannada writer Sudha Narayana Murthy also acted as a Judge.
The serial was again started in the new name as 'Muktha Muktha' involving new characters and different geographical location. T.N. Seetharam reprises the role of CSP. In the new[when?] serial Muktha Muktha, T.N. Seetharam explores issues such as those involving the Naxal, farmers, and the medical system. The unique impact of these serials is caused by the way the stories can be modified to reflect current issues and events.
