What is the story about?

Mou Panda, the wife of Tarak Panda, loves to flirt and have sex with many young men in her locality. When the suspicious Tarak leaves on a work-related trip, he locks the door from outside so that no one can enter their house. However, Mou has managed to distribute duplicate keys to the lock to each of her lovers. However, when one of them dies accidentally after a tryst with Mou, he leaves behind a lottery ticket for a grand prize of Rs 1.5 crores. Over the course of the night, even as multiple lovers keep getting into the house, can Mou escape with the ticket for a new life?

Analysis

On certain Fridays, it is impossible to sit through anything Hoichoi dishes out. Putting out a series that looks suspiciously like the fourth season of the cult adult comedy Dupur Thakurpo and christening it with a different name cannot change the fact that this is an abysmal series. Think of the humour of Priyadarshan's beloved comedy Malamaal Weekly mashed up with the crazy antics of Sujan Mukhopadhyay's Chocolate, and yet that product will be far more entertaining than what director Sayantan Ghosal and writer-producer Sahana Dutta put out here. Over the course of seven episodes, there are a lot of shenanigans that take place in the mad quest for a lottery ticket, and a lot of jokes are cracked at the expense of Mou's voracious libido, but, instead of laughing, all you want to do is wash your eyes with detergent. This series is completely avoidable.

Performances

The entire cast is dreadful. It's hard to understand why Monami Ghosh and Kanchan Mallick signed up for this.

Only Apratim Chatterjee is mildly entertaining as Poltu.

Music & Other Departments

Binit Ranjan Maitra's score is the only decent bit of this series.

Highlights

Why bother?

Drawbacks

Practically every second or third scene is in bad taste, and this is even after considering the cringeworthy scenes in the second and third seasons of Dupur Thakurpo. There's a sequence, for instance, which will totally prevent audiences from eating biriyani again.

Did I enjoy it?

I wished it would end fast.

Do I recommend it?

Absolutely not.
