Time and again, Voot has presented us some really nice series in the form of It's Not That Simple, Untag and others. And now, bringing in two lovely ladies, Ridhima Pandit
and Shamita Shetty
to a web series for the very first time, accompanied by the much loved TVF star, Sumeet Vyas
and actors, Aparshakti Khurrana
and Gaurav Pandey
, Yo Ke Hua Bro is an amalgamation of bromance, friendship, major mishaps, and a classic case of a failed attempt of two boys getting their dream girls.
As the series launched the 5 episodes of season 1 just yesterday, we at India-forums decided to decode the series on what's good and what's not.
Mahendra (Gaurav) and Piyush (Aparshakti) want only two things from their lives right now - a government job and hot girls to fool around with. While the former is a distant dream for them, two girls, Suman (Shamita) and Ragini (Ridhima) enter their lives, only to turn it upside down.
While they try to woo the two girls, the sister duo has a completely different plan for them which lands them in jail. The boys narrate to the inspector how the two girls set them up, made embarrassing videos of the two and demanded a ransom of 1.5 crores which they were required to steal from their own homes. All this while, Inspector Bhagwandas (Sumeet) lends them a ear and pretends to sort things for them. But the story presents another twist yet again.
Will they be able to save the money they stole from their house or they will be tricked by the sisters yet again? Well, that's a worthy watch!
Rating: *** (3/5)The good:
For starters, Sumeet Vyas
' comic timing is what turns out to be the perfect filler in the entire series. We've missed him on the web and this stint of his, partially made up for it. (We still wish we could have got more of him).
The movie actually gives us a lot of feels of the Bollywood movie, Fukrey and also has a touch of the Hollywood movie, Dumb and Dumber. There are a lot of things which seem to be quite simple but aren't.
The season finale seems to be going all fine, only until a revelation happens. The video did reach Mahendar and Piyush's parents, the sister duo is caught by Bhagwandas right in front of their eyes, but, nothing helps! And why it doesn't, is what you'll know only when you watch it.Rating: *** 1/2 (3.5/5)
The Not - so- good
The pace of the series is a little slow, and that makes us want to fast forward a few parts. Had it not been draggy, binge watching it would have been much more fun.
There are instances where things have gone totally over the top, like all those abuses that Ragini and Suman hurl; they could have kept it a little toned down.
And, while the climax will have everyone in total surprise, it is also something that might turn out to be a major turn off for many.
Rating: ** (2/5)
Gaurav as Mahendar and Aparshakti as Piyush are an absolute visual treat to watch. Given the fact that the series is set in Haryana, their dialects are totally on point, and they are the showstoppers of the entire series.
as Ragini and Shamita Shetty
as Suman are a wave of fresh air to the series and are seen in an avatar that they've not taken to ever before. Seeing them as the bad girls of the series comes across as a good watch indeed.
And last, but not the least, Sumeet as Inspector Bhagwandas is yet another takeaway from the series. Though short, this is a role which will be one thing that we definitely will carry in our hearts.
Rating: **** (4/5)
Despite all the good and the not so good, the series as a whole is a fun watch and is worth spending all the time on because of all the humour that is has. Apart from all of that, the series also has this feel to itself which we haven't seen on the digital platform before.
All in all, it is a one time watch and is worthy of some praise!
