I also sought wisdom from Stoic philosophers who were big on differentiating between what is within our control and what isn’t. I realized I couldn’t control the creative direction of the series, but I could control how I responded. So, I chose to leave the project. It was the hardest professional decision I’ve ever had to make, and certainly not one that I took lightly, but it was necessary for my happiness and creative integrity. 

And who knows? Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar has the potential to be good. It might turn out to be a show many of you end up enjoying. But what I can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on-screen, it will not be what Bryan and I had envisioned or intended to make.

 

 

 

Doesn't sound good

Absolutely f**king loved Bandish Bandits. Imho that's how one should make a typical Indian Serial. All the drama without the grief and stupid fillers. And some great music too. Good acting by all.

Can be watched with Family?

Apart from just one episode where they show intimate scene while they are recording and someone goes to someone's room (you will know) and some bj references in slang from one guy every now and then. And another scene where they just show woman's back while getting intimate. Not shown very explicitly but people will understand what's going on. Ill say yes, can be watched with family if some scenes like that are acceptable. 

 

 

Can be easily forwarded.

 

I Would definitely play it for them and leave them to it.

This series was the one which was sent to me preview. It was huge pain to complete first 3 episodes. Very generic typical bollywood musical stuff. Maybe because I am not into classical music, but everything was so pretentious and unrealistic. That guy is such a dedicated singer but he eats oily street food regularly. That was some hilarious sh*t, I know few average local singers and they take care of throat like crazy, no oily food at all, let alone street chat and samosas. Also his uncle denies huge patent money because the foreigner purchasing it wanted to use different name? Does the showrunner even know how a patent works? Don't get me started on police arrest and swapping the guys in jail. It's a typical bollywood show without any realism but takes itself seriously.

 

Edit: And totally unnecessary swear words which are completely against the tone of the show.

I agree with your points but i still liked watching it. 

 

You watched the show as a critic otherwise the street food thing even bothered me but I didnt think much about it. They say that lata mangeshkar and her sisters have not even eaten curd forget chat and all.

I didn't know singers didn't eat oily food, interesting. Also why do they include gaalis man, can't ppl make a few shows where a full family can sit and watch :ack:

I think the popularity of crime/thriller shows like Sacred Games or Mirzapur influenced this heavily.

 

Now we have an influx of crime drama from all streaming services, and they all try to top each other with more and more creative swear words.

 

Though we don't have a problem with gaalis when watching shows as we live in Delhi :fear1:

There are very few good family shows without swearing:

1. Yeh meri family (one episode might make you slightly uncomfortable as it indirectly refers to masturbation lol)

2. Panchayat

3. Chacha vidhayak hai hamare ( has swearing in one episode)

 

That's it lol. Can't think of any other hindi webseries. There is a market for good hindi webseries without swearing or adult content, but they will fill such shows with unnecessary melodrama anyways, so it's not working out.

There are both types of musicians though. Shankar Mahadevan’s favorite food is fried fish, Yesudas loves Chiken Biriyani, SPB smoked, eats ice cream etc and some of the singers I know here have street food too.

 

UP and coming current gen kids are fussy though.
