Like its juvenile leads, AltBalaji web series ‘Boygiri’ refuses to grow up

In front of the web series Boygiri, available in the newly launched application Balaji Telefilm AltBalaji, is a provocative show of yuppies in Mumbai. One of the main characters, Manjot (Adhaar Khurana), is homosexual; Parents buy a sexual device for a child’s birthday party; Characters teach twerk as a kind of flirtation.

But this is only the lip service to overcome the issues, none of which is treated with a sincerity of the 10 episodes of the first season. The show focuses on six main male characters. Each episode revolves around an event or function, such as a school reunion, a funeral close friends or a trip to see the Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium.

The tour of the stage has one of the few moments thus exposed of the show when Manjot and Mantra (Ravi Sinha) are angry against Advait for suggesting India’s most beloved cricket player, Sachin Tendulkar, might not be everything he did . The first episode opens with Advait (Chaitnya Sharma), a playboy type Barney Stinson and without charisma, counting Manjot and Pragnesh (Divyang Thakkar) to his school friends about the different types of sex he likes: to break.

We have heard this conversation before and the characters themselves express a frustration with the theme of episode 2 when Advait Pragnesh invited a bar so they can talk about “other things” outside of sex. The diffusion not only of sexuality, but also social problems such as dowry and the prohibition of beef. The second episode opens at a police station because Manjot and Banda (Ajeet Singh Palawat), who tries to create a restaurant called Maxi Punjab became the show’s plantar arch, have been accused by a disgruntled employee selling meat vaccine.

In episode 7, Pragnesh’s cousin and family marital dowry demands sending Bhadirao (Amey Wagh) as a messenger. In both cases, the tension created by these problems is not used for the value of comedy, and because the filmmakers do not have the courage of their convictions, the tension is allowed to dissipate.

The greatest opportunity I forgot to reach the end of the series. Bandha, who is portrayed as a typical Punjabi man who carries his heart in his hand, gets into fights, whose idea of ​​flirting is extra legal and wants to become a hip hop star like Punjabi Badshaah or Honey Singh, problem with homosexuals . This familiar dynamics could have been explored to reveal a greater truth about the problem, even if they scoff at the situation, but treatment is a commonplace.

A strange gag throughout the run of the series, which also suggests that caters to a specific audience, is the frequent reference to the series Casting Couch marathi brilliant Web with Amey and Nipun. Amey Wagh welcomes Boygiri Bhadirao as a fixer who has connections throughout the city and seems to be engaging in a variety of nasty business while cast member Nipun Dharmadhikari and director Sarang Sathaye make cameos.

Although limited by its hardware, Wagh who is more comfortable Bhadirao or “Bhadi” becomes the cursor shows and the most interesting character. Otherwise, the show is full of scenes that lack laughter, largely because writers rely on lazy configurations involving erroneous homosexual identities and refer to masturbation as “playing their own flute”
