Akoori – A funny glimpse into a quirky family!
Hope you are well and happy today! Just in case, you are looking for another reason to smile, I recently found something that can help. It’s the trailer for a brand new web series called Akoori. Now you might be thinking that there are so many web series out online, what’s so special about it? I too felt the same when I came across it, so I understand. It’s only when I saw the trailer that I found myself laughing my heart out. Here’s what I saw and felt about Akoori.
Akoori Trailer Review:
So, Akoori revolves around a Parsi family. When I think family, I used to remember Hum Saath Saath Hain and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham type movies. But now that definition is out for the window with Akoori. Darshan Jariwala plays a Parsi guy who has no issues cussing when he is pissed at someone. His wife is seen to be in a coma and that’s when the kids come back home to visit. Here is when the fun goes to the next level.
Watch the trailer here:
The son, played by Shadab Kamal, who is hinted to be a homosexual, lets out some secrets of his father in a glimpse of a hilarious dinner argument. The daughter, played by Zoa Morani is stuck in an unhappy marriage with a Punjabi businessman. Her Punjabi husband too shares the sentiment, as he is later seen praising his naughty experience of a Thailand trip. To add to this mix, the Bawa father’s brother has his eyes on the property. But the cherry on the cake is the charming Lillette Dubey, who is seen trying to hold the family together, but also in an affair with Darshan Jariwala.
Phew! That’s a lot of stories in a single family. But that’s exactly where the fun is. Akoori justifies its quirky title by presenting a scrambled mess of a family with liberal doses of laughter. But more than the laughs, I loved the trailer mainly because it speaks about things like LGBT, marital issues and infidelity in an unfiltered manner. These are conversations that need to be out there through well-told stories. Going by the trailer, Akoori surely looks promising too.
I am surely looking forward to watching Akoori on ZEE5. I highly recommend you check it out too. Once you do, you will know that you are in for a fun ride.
