Paurashpur is an ALT Balaji original and is a series that everyone has been looking up to. Helmed by Shachindra Vats, the series features Shilpa Shinde, Sahil Salathia, Annu Kapoor, Anant Joshi, Shaheer Sheikh, Milind Soman, Flora Saini, Poulomi Das. If there’s one thing that does deserve a mention in this Paurashpur review, it is the efforts.
The kingdom of Paurashpur is one that is dominated by men, there are layers to that as well. A conspiracy that remains unanswered is how queens of Bhadra Pratap Singh go missing. Is it a tale of his revenge, or lust, it is only unveiled through the due course of the series. If nothing, the series has a topsy-turvy screenplay and while it doesn’t keep you hooked, it does have its own highs! Another highlight of the series has to be the costumes, absolutely impeccable.
Check out the trailer of the series here before reading the Paurashpur review:
With an ensemble cast, it does not have to be a secret that the performances are what make it. Hence, an apt Paurashpur review means an emphasis on the actors. Together, the cast is a treat to watch, and one can see how they’ve had a remarkable journey on-screen. Annu as the king, or the likes of Milind and Shilpa, they’ve all displayed acting prowess. Though Shaheer does not have a lot to do on-screen, we know we love him in every single shot. The entire cast has done an impeccable job at keeping up with their characters.
Talk about grandeur and you’ll see it in every single frame of the series. The sequences that are crucial are magnificent, and both Shilpa and Milind take our hearts away. While we need to give it to them for carrying the show on their shoulders, we did hope for more.
No series is free of loopholes, and as for this Paurashpur review, it is the pace of the show. Though less than 10 episodes, there are moments you feel out of place. Though aesthetically shot, the intimate scenes seemed a little haywire. As for the story, we don’t see the makers doing what they were promised. Everything that the trailer of the series promised, the story does not deliver.
So to sum up the Paurashpur review, it is an average watch, but the performances must be lauded, deservedly so!
