Netflix has sure been coming up with some amazing mini-series’ and well, here’s another. Before we get started on the Bhaag Beanie Bhaag review, just watch it with an open mind. Many have claimed it to be a remake of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, but it isn’t. It features an amazing cast of Swara Bhasker, Varun Thakur, Dolly Singh, Ravi Patel, Girish Kulkarni, and Mona Ambegaonkar.
The show basically traces the journey of a young woman who wants to become a stand-up comedian, but ends up doing everything else. Right from MBA to getting engaged, and many other things, until, she decides to just go for it. However, it comes at a cost, including a lost bond with parents, some betrayal, a hard time, and much more. However, she does find support in her best friend.
Check out the trailer while you are at the Bhaag Beanie Bhaag review:
Swara Bhasker plays the role of Beanie Bhatnagar, Dolly Singh her best friend Kapi, Varun Thakur as Arun, the fiance. Ravi Patel also has a pivotal role in the story as a stranger turned friend turned ‘something’. All their performances have been a treat to watch, especially Swara. In addition, a Bhaag Beanie Bhaag review will not be complete without special mention of veterans Mona and Girish as Beanie’s parents. Along with every single episode, we also see them evolve, and beautifully so.
While there are a couple of cliches that follow Beanie onto her journey, there also are these small moments that stay! That entire bit where Beanie and Ravi play cricket with the kids on the beach is a tiny such example. Dolly as Kapi is quite the revelation. While we’ve never doubted her skills, she is undoubtedly, the favourite character all through.
The Bhaag Beanie Bhaag review loses out on some point because it ends a little too soon. However, we do know there’s going to be a second season, but we also did expect a little more. All through, we see a beautiful journey from self-doubt to self-discovery, and though brisk, it is noteworthy!
