Cinema and television are the only difference between larger than life. Here, some web series have bridged the gap between these two. Especially if the web series is like ‘Black Widows’. With this Hindi adaptation of one of Finland’s popular webseries ‘Mustat Lasket’, Indian OTT Entertainment has definitely gone four steps ahead, at least three steps ahead. The three female characters who remain at the center of the series from the beginning to the end reveal the reality of the society, which is often not talked about. What do young women who dream of getting settled in life after marrying a nobleman, do not get as beautiful as the dream world? The web series ‘Black Widows’ opens its layers. Mystery and adventure are not the main focus of the story. Here the characters of the story laugh at themselves. They curse themselves and the audience neither sympathizes nor hates them. This is a real dark comedy.
The hard work of G5’s creative team is evident in the indigenous adaptation of this foreign series. The lanes, turns and intersections through which the story has been started at a very enthralling location are the real joy of the story. Radhika Anand should be shunned for not letting her realize that the story is not native, from the setup of the story to its expansion. Classical stories perhaps also have the same real identity that they are beyond the country, time and circumstances. This story of 12 episodes of about half an hour, where it stops, tells that its second season must also be made.
The story of the web series ‘Black Widows’ begins with the autobiography of three friends. All three are telling the realities of their husbands and also showing how all three of them have been making fun of being happy with them. Kavita, Jayati and Veera plan to change the story of their youth. They plot to end their husbands in a blast in such a way that nobody suspects them. However, the situation worsens when his plan does not succeed 100 percent. One of the three husbands returns in this plan, showing 33 percent failing. And, before that, the corner of his life seems to be cropping up, a pair of police officers whose interaction between them can remind you of Karamchand detectives and kitty. More characters in the story keep coming and expanding the story. The pressure of police investigation starts appearing on all the three friends and then ..!
I have praised the writing of the series at the beginning of the review. The technical team of the web series ‘Black Widows’ has acted like an agile team here which can be an example for those who make other web series. What has emerged from the editing table shows the hard work of the entire team along with its video editor Sumit Chaudhary. Director Birsa Dasgupta’s vision has also received strong praise from Shubhankar for cinematography. He has kept the lighting of each scene such that even a little open light can be made in it and a little mysterious shadow.
Shamita Shetty, Swastika Mukherjee and Mona Singh, the three actresses who play the title of the web series ‘Black Widows’, also show a way to the Hindi entertainment world that if written in a characterful manner, then all the other actresses in the Hindi film world are also leaking something She is ready to do it. The presence of all three gives an essential aura to the series like the rising magic of aging.
By the way, in terms of acting, this series is of Sharad Kelkar. This form of Sharad Kelkar is hardly seen by the audience before. Sharad Kelkar, who overshadowed Akshay Kumar in his previous film ‘Lakshmi’, maintains his reason for watching the series here. Rayama Sen’s elusive character gives a balanced flow to the series’ story. Parambrata Chattopadhyay and Shruti Vyas’s chemistry is of a different level, which can only be realized by looking at the webseries. Aamir Ali and Nikhil Bambari also influence. Overall, the web series ‘Black Widows’ is the perfect binge watch for the weekend.
