TVF Pitchers (2015)
THE Best Contemporary Indian Drama. By a distance.
I'll start as all reviews should start: I thoroughly enjoyed the series. If you're wondering why this is a web-series rather than a TV Series, the answer is that TVF Pitchers is simply ahead of it's time. The clumsy Indian television is not ready for this gem.
The thing that stands out most in this is the writing. The writing has a soul, and there isn't a moment where any scene seems out-of-place. I simply haven't seen this magic in Indian TV and frankly, I don't expect to.
It is shot in such a way that it feels very true-to-life rather than an empty candy wrapper on expensive sets (balika vadhu; cough! cough!).
The casting is absolutely perfect. Traditional well-built handsome models give way to the more humanistic "common-man".
Quite frankly, I didn't expect the casting to be good. But Naveen Kasturia and Jitendra Kumar will give you shock of your lives by touching your hearts. Must admit, did not see this coming.
This series will give you everything in the right amount: Emotion: The non-cheesy breakup scene got me. Clichés: There are none. Comedy: TVF is an expert in this; but doesn't over blow it (which is commendable). Dialogue: The dialogue is the spine of the movie and it's just perfect with the right pop- cultural references and unapologetic cursing. Character Arc: Each and every arc is beautiful, especially Jeetu's Romance: Your only chance to see a realistic romance. Pacing: Each episode will make you wish it was 10 times longer.
In conclusion I would say that there are some series that are made for money, and I have nothing against them. Then there are some series that are made from the heart. You end up falling in love with them.
Do yourself a solid, go watch it on YouTube now. Thank me later
