Little Things Season 3 review - When adulthood comes in between relationships

Unlike Game Of Thrones, Sacred Games, Bard of Bloods, Little Things isn’t a web-series which comes with a lot of publicity. Although it released on a network giant platform such as Netflix, life isn’t easy for Little Things. Neither is it easy for Dhruv Vats (Dhruv Sehgal) and Kavya Kulkarni (Mithila Parkar), who are in a live-in relationship. The third season explores what most couples in love dread the most, long-distance relationship. Dhruv’s career moves forward as he shifts to Bangalore to become a research assistant. Kavya, on the other hand, is broken and miserable but still tries to keep a happy face. Dhruv and Kavya both struggle in their own ways. Luckily, Little Things does not contain the elements Bollywood has used for years to romanticise heart-breaking goodbye, (and we are thankful for that.) Long-distance relationships are hard, and while we are happy that Little Things has decided to keep things real, we can’t help but be disappointed at Mithila Parker. You can almost tell that she has secretly assumed that since she isn’t a star kid, and since she is working in a Netflix series, people might just assume that Mithila Parkar is a wonderful actress. You are forgetting Mithila, this is an audience who have admired star kids like Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal and have also criticised acting skills of various actors who are not related to anyone in the film industry, but were fortunate enough to make a big appearance on screen. While we understand that Kavya is a girl who is severely shattered but Mithila is not. The latter hardly makes an effort when the former feels that she is slightly losing interest in Dhruv (thanks to the distance). Little Things 3 has been directed by National Award-winner Ruchir Arun, who also helmed season two. The fact that he chose to let the series take its time at its own pace is commendable. His casting choice, not so much.

Rating: 2.5/5
