An Excellent episode, but not a Webbed kind of episode, but more of Gumrah in it. Nevertheless a great episode.
It is a story of a homosexual boy who is afraid to express his feelings to anyone, thus he turns to internet and does something despicable to hide a lie.
The episode is mainly focused on "expressing yourself" rather than harms of internet. What he does is just an out come of the protagonist being afraid to communicate and express his sexuality. Internet has only a small role.
Homosexuality is still frowned upon and is considered next to a taboo in India, even after its decriminalizing in July 2009. Our society fails to digest same-sex relationship. Thus, striking fear amongst the ones with those needs.
The same fear is beautifully depicted in this nicely interwoven story. Story might be based upon on a true incident but the "realization by Ankita" part seemed a bit made-up. The performances are also commendable. Shivam Patil is a talented young actor who in the hands of directors like Anurag Kashyap can do wonders.
Performances: Shivam is good, Priya is OK, rest of the cast is average.
Music: Fitting songs, and good music.
Overall, the best episode so far, certainly a tear jerker.
