Wakaalat From Home Review: What’s The Story? And How’s The Screenplay?
Sujin Kohli (Sumeet Vyas) & Radhika Sen’s (Nidhi Sen) marriage has gone haywire amid pandemic and both are seeking a divorce. Sujin thinks Radhika is a lesbian and she believes, he is having an extramarital affair. Since it’s a lockdown both are having court sessions on video conferences along with their lawyers. While Sujin is the client of Rajini Tacker (Kubbra Sait), Lobo Tripathi (Gopal Dutt) has been hired by Radhika.
Anuvab Pal & Rohan Sippy’s script mostly relies on jokes, puns and witty oneliners as there’s not much weight in the script. There are several moments in the show which will make you laugh out loud. Some of them will even make you tap the pause button and laugh like crazy. But it’s not possible in each and every scene and that’s where you feel the lack of content.
Yes, the show badly suffers from the lack of content and that’s why there are so many moments which make you feel bored. That’s worse because the episodes have a duration of less than 15 minutes and when they are already short, there shouldn’t be any scope of boredom. A lot of times while watching the show you feel it’s being dragged unnecessarily. A lot of scenes are there just for the sake of it. While watching, Wakaalat From Home, I remembered how in exams we used to write random stuff just to fill the answer sheet. That’s not cool when you bring a super-hit onscreen duo like Sumeet Vyas & Nidhi Singh together.
