This was released last 2016 and I watched it early 2017 when I was discovering my new love towards alternate content. I never watched TV a lot, partly because the content that was played at my home wasn’t to my taste and I stayed a lot in hostels and PGs during the age where you unwind in front of TV after a day’s work.
So, this is 6 episode web series directed by Danish Aslam, each about 25 minutes. Starring the gorgeous Swara Bhaskar(Meera) in lead role, it has strong supporting cast of Karanveer Mehra( Jayesh) and her two school time friends Vivan Bhatena( Rajeev) and Akshay Oberai( Sameer).
Already stuck in an unhappy marriage, Meera leaves her MIT Education because her husband doesn’t get it. She isn’t looking for affair, but she is also not sure what to do with her marriage. School reunion happens just in time and her old almost-boyfriends from school meet her. Sameer is married with triplets and Rajeev is still divorced.
The show shows how she starts going out with her school crushes just to lighten up her life a bit, and how things turn into an affair-mode with the most un-guessing Sameer, while Rajeev is more upfront about his obsession with Meera. She just starts harmless flirting with the guys starting turning more serious.
The end shows the confrontation between Meera & her husband Jayesh and finally she separates from him and stays with her daughter. Music is beautiful, and the delicate of expressions have been brought out very nicely by the actors. Meera has a love marriage, and Jayesh’s characterization is typical Indian male – nothing surprising. After all, a women has the right to choose what she wants, and all she wants – RESPECT.
It is little hard to digest that she could digress into an affair while being married, but it just shows the desperation a person can go through when staying in a toxic relationship for a very long time – a little bit of warmth and appreciation can take them astray very soon. There’s a parallel thread of Sameer & his wife – who wants to stay married even through there’s love. There’s a good section of society who are married but lie to their partners and think it’s perfectly okay to do so
The entire web series theme can be summed up as below –
Situations get complicated because we are afraid to take decisions.
We need to answer only one question – What makes me happy?
Until you figure this out yourself, you can’t really tell anyone else.
Marriages start on love, but it is hard work to keep the love in the marriage intact. And it is very well worth it. Watch it for its brilliant screenplay.
Review : 10/10
