Khelti Hai Zindagi Aankh Micholi is the story of an average 14 year old girl Ami. The show celebrates 'averagism' in the protagonist who is neither the most beautiful girl nor the most intelligent one like most of the protagonists on TV today. She is an average and relatable character. Ami's world came crashing when she lost her father. He was everything to her. He was her friend, her teacher; he was the man who encouraged her to explore her strengths, man who accepted her with all her flaws. Ami dealt with her tears but couldn't deal with the change around her. Her imperfect tender self was caught between her childlike activities and expectations from the society. Her mother Shruti was forced to take up the dual responsibility of both mother and father.
