Gullak Season 2
About two years ago, it was TVF who had introduced us to the Mishra family, a closely knit middle class Indian family who slowly but surely won our hearts over. Not only did we feel that the proceedings were relatable but we all embraced them as well. That series was Gullak and this Friday releases the second season of Gullak on Sony Liv. Is it as heart warming as the first season, stay tuned.
Story & Screenplay
The second season of Gullak is entirely in the mould of the first season, except that there is a tad more drama and substance to it. As was in season 1, season 2 is also divided into five chapters with a loose connection in the backdrop between chapters. The story is definitely heartwarming. The screenplay is light and breezy and easy on the eye. But as mentioned before, there is a bit more drama this time around. Having said that, the proceedings are relatable. You must admit, we all have such characters in our immediate family whom we fight with, argue with yet love them to bits at the end of the day. And that is the main USP of season 2, which remains intact from season 1.
Dialogues, Music & Direction
The dialogues are funny with some hilarious one liners. I thoroughly enjoyed the music too, that leisurely feeling that goes so well with the mood of the series. Director Palash Vaswani who had earlier directed Cheesecake, is yet again in profound form. His direction keeps all the emotions intact yet adds a lot of substance to the drama.
The performances like in all TVF series are outstanding. Jameel Khan as Papa has one of the best comic timings on display. He just nails some of the one liners. Vaibhav Raj Gupta as Annu has tremendous screen presence. He is simply outstanding in a role which he has now made it his own. Harsh Mayar as Aman again has terrific comic timing. Some of his acts are outright hilarious. And he is such a natural onscreen. My pick of the lot is Geetanjali Kulkarni as Mummy. She is in a role which represents most of the mothers of our country. She is so affable and simply brilliant, she will leave a smile on your face.
Like season 1, the second season of Gullak is heartwarming and will leave a smile on your face. Available on Sony Liv and Highly Highly Recommended.
