Gullak Review: Jameel Khan, Geetanjali Kulkarni & Sons spin lovely, nostalgic stories

Gullak Mr. and Mrs. Mishra


Performers – Jameel Khan, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Vaibhav Raj Gupta, Harsh Mayar

Directed by Amrit Raj Gupta

Except for anecdotal recalls Gullak, a TVF creation, inspires everyday characters like you and me to engage with the countless tastes of our lives, to entertain and enjoy them, so that one day they become part of an archive of endearing anthology series, in which this story of the family Mishra emphasizes being. Gullak is a hundred minutes full of emotions that capture life in the small town.

By Sameer Saxena (Yeh Meri Family, tripling) Gullak These are gripping stories by Santosh & Shanti Mishra (actors Jameel Khan, Geetanjali Kulkarni) and their sons Annu and Aman (Vaibhav Raj Gupta and Harsh Mayar) that hit the right chord when you learn flashbacks from your own childhood. With an action driven by the exposure voice of a gullak or piggy bank, these actors exude humor in the crisis and complement them with a feeling of sweet, soothing feelings that are very personal but universal.

Observe Gullak Trailer here:

Shanti, the housewife, begins her struggles at dawn. She is the fundamental mother who speaks like an adult in a male family who needs all course correction interventions. Her sarcasm-filled exchange with women in the neighborhood is an indicator of how fresh and free a character can do things differently during the day.

Gullak Mr. and Mrs. Mishra

Santosh is the selfish, patronizing father and his sons are his two extensions. There is no conspiracy that holds the Mishra family together, but their moods that drive the narrative and ultimately provide a subject that reflects the moral of the story. It is fascinating to see how the dynamic of relationships with your family unfolds before your eyes when you break a tear, sigh and carry on. However, subtle observations and the seamless return to the home – mother, father and sons – evoke some dramatic moments.

Annu, the couple's 22-year-old son, has been at home for a year after preparing for the SSC exams. This itself provides feed for disputes that are plentiful. Then there is Aman, who is absent-minded and futile. Together, the two brothers turn out to be idiotic enough for a few laughs.

Gullak suffers from nostalgia that sometimes pulls it down. It also hits you constantly with self-discovery and remains stable. The series was not overloaded with complexities, but has a fine, humorous layout that fits well into accepted situations.

The balancing act must be credited to the director Amrit Raj Gupta with this script and the delivery. Occasionally Gullak Certainly a watch that you don't mind.

All episodes are streamed free of charge in the Sony LIV app.

Stars 3/5
