The Great Indian Dysfunctional Family Review
If you watch recent family drama’s in a digital platform like TVF Yeh Meri Family or ALTBalaji’s Home, such series has a very different and unique narration and deals with the character’s dealing and messing with society or among themselves. TGIDF is not about the present story it is more about there dark secrets and unanswered question from the past of each.
The Great Indian Dysfunctional Family Story
The pilot episode named “Meet The Ranaut’s” introduced the characters of Ranaut family. Where On a night, Vikram Ranaut’s alienated brother Samar, who had escaped from both the home and the army 8 years before, returns home with his Mrs. Sonali played by Eisha Chopra. It begins as an unusual family reunion slowly turns into a series of heartbreaks, secret betrayals, and emotional breakdowns, doubt in the trust in every relationship.
In the same time daughter of Vikram Ranaut “Aditi Ranaut” is heartbroken for her childhood best friend Nandita Sood upcoming marriage anniversary. After she drunken came home and encountered with her father in front of Samar and Sonali. In the very next day, the Ranaut family went off for Nandita’s marriage party where Sonali discovers that Aditi is in love with her best friend Nandita.
As the story progress, more secrets got reveals. Everyone has a secret to hide, the story is unpredictable in every episode and became more complicated. Even though the characters did mistakes you became more closed to every character of Ranaut family especially the most dangerous one Vikram Ranaut. and Even though the rough characterization they still manage to look cool.
The Great Indian Dysfunctional is probably the best original series from ALTBalajiOriginal till date. The reason for this is almost everything starting from the writing which is written by the actress Eisha Chopra and Tanveer Bookwala. The cinematography by Abhimanyu Sengupta is pitch perfect not like the Ranaut family, the beauty of Kasauli, we have seen in many Bollywood movies but this series shows from the underbelly of the hill station.
The performance of every actor is just above super, but Kay Kay Menon stand above from all the other actors. A scene where his wife tells him he is seating in a Takht (Throne), the person who dislike from everyone also had a good handle in comic timing, especially a scene where he brings a psychologist for her lesbian daughter where he is chauvinistic and funny at the same moment. The next favorite actor will be Swaroop Sampat in her role of Premlata, she is very loving who used to get high most of the time.
