Aashram Web Series Review
Aashram lacks the sturdiness of being a great web series. It has everything that would make a web series great, But the final product has many flaws. Starting my the cast Bobby Deol has done a decent job, But the role doesn’t fit him.
There could be many more actors that would grab the true identity of the character. Ashram’s writing is quite straightforward, And many episodes are just adaptations of real-life events. The exploration of politics and religion has been shown quite greatly in the web series.
Apart, From exploring different power structures in India, The show also takes on the caste system that gives birth to such a con man. The show has been tried to be politically correct on many occasions, Giving hints and sneak-peak, But the show did not express any thought deeply. Might be to avoid controversy.
The colorful theme of the show symbolizes the portrayal of the darkness of society. A quick search on the internet will give you back several ‘Self Proclaimed Godmen’. Aashram is a story of tyrannical men using religion and politics to climb their way into darkness and crime.
Such people not only face no jail; But also protected from different politicians. Darshan Kumaar has immense himself into the character, He is the one who keeps his presence without boring the audience. Aashram touches many sensitive topics and explores the bad in our society. You should definitely watch the web series and gain different perceptions.
