Storyline

After the death of his grandmother and the traumatic divorce of his parents, high school loner Prem is about to discover the harsh reality of growing up. Set in Greater West London, this potent and graphic coming of age ensemble series sees a teenager attempt to carve his own path to manhood as both he and those around him venture into the light and dark sides of life. Prem's bond with his father is shattered whilst distance grows between mother and son, leading him to life changing relationships with a troubled teacher, a victimised classmate and the object of his affection. Through a powerful and often surreal journey, Prem will see that he's the underdog about to find out what it takes to truly mature in a life that's already given him the middle finger. Written by Liger Films Ltd.

Flawed but strong & different
26 August 2015 | by faisalimanSee all my reviews

I just got done seeing the final part about 30min ago and still thinking about it. Although there were a few things I wasn't keen on in some earlier episodes, I think I got to understand those things during the final one.

I was wondering about how the relationship was really like between Prem and his sister as they didn't really show much of it apart from a few scenes here and there but then in this final episode, that opening kind of said it all. Probably cos I'm used to watching things that explain the story a little more in their lines, this show got me thinking a lot throughout it and I don't think I was ready. I had to adjust quickly by the time I got to the 2nd and 3rd part. I think I wanted to see more of what life what like before Prem's Nan died and have a bit more back-story but after talking to a mate, he suggested I re-watch the show cos there was a lot going on and you had to give it your full attention.

The parts I thought were really strong were the performances. These people were real to me and it never really felt like acting. The camera shots were different and took a bit of time to get use to as I didn't really see this style that much in other shows I watch. It was weird when these scenes would pop up and then you'd realise that they weren't actually part of the real life scenes but inner thoughts shown to the audience. There was always something crazy or deep going on and it felt like I needed to take a minute and breathe.

Highlight was definitely ep4, I won't spoil anything but that was one of the most unique things I've seen a while. I felt like I was tripping at times watching the scene unfold.

What I personally like about shows in general is that they should start really strong, stay strong and end even stronger. Some shows I watch I can kinda predict that the middle episodes are gonna be like filler and not really develop the main story. They kinda stretch it out and it gets a little boring. That's what made PREMature different and that's what I really appreciated, every part of the show was meant for something bigger.

I will say to end this review that the closing scene with Prem and his mate Will was fierce and I ain't sure if there's gonna be more but it ended even stronger then when the show began so props to them.
