Direction and Writing

This web series of 6 episodes directed by Sahil Sangha directly touches the heart. The new twist in the story in every episode keeps the series tied. The wavering of the intentions of the parents in the fight to give justice to their child, their confusion and their moral weakness have been presented by the director in front of the audience with great precision.

Cases like sexual harassment, molestation towards minor children are increasing day by day. Not only girls but boys are also falling prey to this heinous act.

Vivan Bhatena is seen in this series in the role of Vikram Bajaj, who is a superstar to the outside world but in reality he is just one. Vivaan’s acting is also commendable in this series because you will hate him on seeing him.

what are the flaws

The past of Raghav and Seema Vashisht tries to distract the story by clashing between Raghav’s two wives. Despite interesting acting, Mona Basu’s character seems like a headless angle. If information about POCSO was given in this series, then this film would have become more effective.
