You know a web series is a true reflection of your life when the family on-screen bears an uncanny resemblance to yours!
When The Timeliners’ Aam Aadmi Family released its season 1 trailer we couldn’t help but broadcast how well had they caught the extra ordinary nerve of an ordinary Indian Middle class family.
Now that season 2 is out, we found ourselves excitedly at the premiere last evening with the question, what’s new this time? Because as voracious content consumers and something the makers usually do fear, season 2 can mean a lot of pressure. The pressure of the weight of expectations from the previous season.
But after watching and thoroughly enjoying the first two episodes of the Aam Aadmi Family, Season 2 we can gladly say it’s even better!
Why you ask? Read on….
1. Characters’ Chatter: While in the first season, the characters evoke giggles and smiles, they become familiar and favourites in season 2. The actors wear the skin of the characters seamlessly, building a relationship with their audience that their traits and quirks flow naturally through the episode. On a side note, props to the guy who played the security guard in episode 1, cameo done right.
2. Celebrating Life: Season 1 did it too, but we feel Season 2 does it even better. Both the episodes celebrated the little joys and realities of life, the ones we fail to appreciate every day.
3. The real middle class concerns: While we all know that deriving cheap thrills out of daily savings are every middle class Indian’s day-to-day concerns, season 2 taps upon the bigger picture. The wedding saga in a middle class household, which isn’t a cakewalk. Kudos to the makers for raising that subject on such a beautiful note!
P.S: The Aam Aadmi Family is back with even better aam tales and we’re loving every bit of it. The characters have grown on us and the nuances get funnier. Until next time, #StayCurious 🙂
