Here’s what so great about the exploding web series space in India– we, as viewers, will keep getting a plethora of shows to choose from. Now, some of it may be shit, some really good, some in-between… but the point is that there’s going to be a large variety of Indian content to choose from instead of the same old ‘saas-bahu’ sagas, ‘laughter show clones’ on TV and those crappy ‘500-crore+’ Bollywood formula films.
So while big players like TVF, AIB and Y-Films continue to treat us with lavish, big-budget and good looking shows for the web, there are also some really quality indie players out there who are all set to roll with just a great idea and (hopefully) an engaging storyline. Bangalore-based, Just Like That Films’ new web series called – The ‘Other’ Love Story – a mature take on a lesbian relationship, looks to be just that.
Episode 1 of the series released over the weekend and it plays out as a very simple, straight-forward and subtle narrative. Set in the year 1998, we see Aadya, a young girl who’s somewhat lost and confused, unable to speak her mind and what’s in her heart. She can’t hold back her tears even as she runs into Aanchal – a neighbourhood acquaintance.
However, a late-night (10 pm!) phone call from Aanchal brings a smile to Aadya’s face, which sets the stage for this ‘other’ love story.
Directed by Roopa Rao, the web series stars Shweta Gupta, Spoorthi Gumaste in the lead roles. Check out the first episode of what looks to be a promising web series, below:
