(2008 TV Series)
A TV program centered on a soul-searching Swedish cop. (90 mins.)
“ Wallander series is one of those superior cop shows in which the character of the detective matters more than the plot. Branagh's performance is understated, ruminative, warm, sensitive and depressed. Wallander is that rare treasure: a popular form used for intelligent, thoughtful, classy drama and superbly shot. Sweden, had never looked as beautiful as in this production. Emily Barker's Nostalgia is an apt title song for the show. ” - SharmaAnkit
Sarabhai vs Sarabhai
(2004 TV Series)
The show revolves around the lives of the members of an Uber Wealthy - High Society Gujarati family of Cuffe Parade - South Bombay, whose daughter-in-law is from a middle class Delhi background. (30 mins.)
“ The show revolves around the life of a fictional Gujarati family, the Sarabhais. They are portrayed as a typical family in the class of elite socialites of Mumbai. They live in a luxurious apartment in Sarabhai mansion located in the upmarket Cuffe Parade area of South Mumbai.
The family consists of Indravadan Sarabhai and his wife Maya, who live in an apartment with their younger son Rosesh. Their older son Sahil and his wife Monisha Sarabhai née Manisha Singh live in the flat opposite. Maya considers the name Manisha middle class and renames her Monisha before their marriage. The middle-class habits of Monisha irk Maya. Monisha, on the other hand, does not appreciate Maya's snooty and snobbish behaviour. Indravadan constantly derides Roshesh for being tied to his mother's apron strings and for writing bad poetry. Maya and Roshesh consider Indravadan's attitude towards Rosesh and his gregarious nature boorish. The ensuing conflict and comedy becomes Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. Much of the humour is derived from the fake, artificial and shallow interactions among the city's elite and their perceived notions of the shortcomings and failings of middle-class society. ” - SharmaAnkit
