There is an ode to Pyaar ke side effects in the series which of course is a movie of the creator rangita Nandy. I love the message that this show sends in a lot of aspects, the chubby girl being fat-shamed by her mother and then standing up for herself, the proud to of her own sexuality small town girl, trolling and abusive online threats, and being a single parent with an asshole for a father’s child.
there is too much sex in the series for 5 hours, although I guess the characters are shown to be quite active I guess. Anjana Menon played by Kirti kulhari is amazing, Kirti has acted her part to the T, it is a delight to watch her, she brings out so much rage in me on behalf of her. Amrita Puri was visible after a long time and she was perfect for her part. maanvi gagroo was, of course, one of my favorite characters here, her characters had so many layers. simone Singh was awesome as the mother. Pratiek Babbar and Milind Soman are total eye candies to watch but have done a good job with their characters as well.
I like the way the episodes begin with a narration. the season leaves us on cliffhangers for each one’s story and hence I am looking forward to furthering episodes. i would not call this series a comedy, it is a drama series focussing on women.
there are many scenes that are absurd in the series, too unrealistic but there are some that are so well written and real, some scenes that are fun and beautiful to watch, overall for a binge watch it isn’t so bad, especially with a beer with your girlfriends.
