Married Woman Diaries is a hidden gem of a web series. ‘Hidden’ because the series might not be receiving the kind of visibility that it probably deserves, as yet (the show is only two episodes down). And ‘gem’ because…well, it’s awesome!
Launched on Sony LIV, Married Woman Diaries has a pretty usual, unoriginal concept for an Indian web series – centred around a young, urban couple living together (in this case, they’re already married). But what really sets this one apart is; a) the writing which is very relatable, witty and fun. b) the acting and, c) the extremely natural, lovable chemistry between the two lead actors – Suzanna Mukherjee and Abhishek Rawat.
Somewhat on the lines of TVF’s latest series Humorously Yours, Married Woman Diaries is a fun take on the lives of this urban couple seen through the eyes of the wife – Shweta, who’s a stand-up comedian.
In the show, Shweta uses bits and pieces of her married life experience as material for her stand-up shows. Her fun, aggressive and passionate take on constantly changing dynamics of a relationship makes this new web series romantic, filled with drama and lots of laughs.
Check out the first two episodes below:
Episode 1: Why God Why?
Shweta explains the kind of paranoia a married woman goes through in this hilarious first episode of Married Woman Diaries. What is the big surprise that Rishi wants to give Shweta?
Episode 2: Lazy Sperm
Rishi’s mother is going to stay with them for a few days and Shweta doesn’t want to discuss why they aren’t having a baby yet. Shweta uses a brilliant & hilarious tactic avoid the topic. But does it work or backfires when God plays the best stand-up comic?
Episode 3 will be out on Monday, January 9. You can watch the promo below.
