Date Gone Wrong Review: An worthy premise wasted in frivolity

What is about?
During lockdown 6 twenty-something people decide to go on virtual dates, where something or the other is bound to go wrong as the title suggests. Be it a narcissistic rapper or a man faking his nationality or a man blaming his date for taking his job, the 3 situations are examples of 'dating gone wrong' in 2020. 

 

Analysis
Date Gone Wrong Season 2 is completely shot over video calls and doesn't have much scope for nuance or dialogue. The makers may have encapsulated modern problems in dating, but the effect is such that is ends up being frivolous. Dating Gone Wrong if made on a wider scale could deal with a lot of serious problems that couples, especially women face. It just seemed that the makers were trying to introduce fillers for the absence of content that is felt all across the world. 

 

Performances
Having a run-time of 6 minutes, you can barely gauge into the acting prowesses of the cast. It seems unfair to judge them on the basis of what seems like conversations on video calls. 

 

Highlights
None that I could think of. 

 

Drawbacks
I think this kind of content which is being made over video and zoom calls has become redundant. I might as well binge-watch an old movie or show. 

 

Music
None present at all. 

 

Did I Enjoy It?
I really don't know what is it that the makers were trying to prove. I get that the pandemic is getting to us all, but to keep on making web-shows over zoom calls or skype is so frivolous. 

 

Do I Recommend It?
No
