From Modern Love Mumbai to Four More Shots, a look at overrated Indian shows

5 overrated Indian shows to flee from.



Modern Love Mumbai

With the advent of OTT platforms in India, the Indian audience bid adieu to the ‘saas-bahu drama’ on television. Myriad shows, dedicated to the OTT audience, have been released for the past few years, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.

The audience got the substance and relatability they needed in the content they consumed and were freed from stereotypical and regressive content served on Hindi channels.

Production houses released web shows and films on OTT platforms every week which is overwhelming for the audience. There are shows that created a hullabaloo among fans with their first part and on the flip side, there are shows that fizzled out after their first episode. And there are also shows with out-of-the-box marketing on social media but didn’t turn out to be worth the hype.

With the N-number of OTT platforms around, it was natural that there would be N-number of shows. If you are a sucker for Indian web shows, you might have friends who can’t stop talking about a particular show and made you binge-watch it but you were disappointed! This article is for you poor souls who end up choosing overrated shows going by social media trends.

5 overrated Indian shows to flee from

Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives

Nepotism has many negative sides but Karan Johar took the cliche and turned it upside down. He featured his four best buddies Seema Kiran Sajdeh, Neelam Kothari, Bhavana Pandey, and Maheep Kapoor and doled out a 21st-century favour to them by helping them retain their long-lost fame or the fame their husbands never enjoyed.

Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives is like a drunk mistake everyone regrets the next morning. And they had the audacity to come up with a second season? Why? Why was this series even made? Netflix! Why so tasteless?

Modern Love Mumbai

Bankrolled by Pritish Nandy, this Amazon Prime Video series brings you six stories of human connection. The six-story series has been directed by Shonali Bose, Hansal Mehta, Alankrita Shrivastava, Vishal Bhardwaj, Nupur Asthana, and Dhruv Sehgal.

Inspired by Modern Love by John Carney, Modern Love Mumbai has beautiful stories but what’s new. Similar themes and content have been seen in Lust Stories and Made in Heaven and films like Kapoor And Sons and Tamasha. Six stories dealing with people’s complexities and finding love and connection are monotonous and can be seen in every other OTT series. Yawn!

Four More Shots Please!

Starring Bani J, Sayani Gupta, Kirti Kulhari, and Maanvi Gagroo in the lead, Four More Shots Please is an utter waste of time. It’s a weak-ass watered-down version of Sarah Jessica Parker’s Sex And The City. The acting, plot, and dialogues seem to be written by the scriptwriter under extreme duress, such as at gunpoint. And the drama in the show will remind you of the much-criticised portrayal of feminism in Rhea Kapoor’s film Veerey Di Wedding.

Little Things

Starring Mithila Palkar and Dhruv Sehgal, Little Things has very little substance. Same old mundane urban relationship and cohabitation scuffle. The show is popular among the young, but again the story is as stale as a week-old loaf of bread. Palkar has already appeared in similar content produced by Filter Copy and TVF. Moreover, the makers came up with sequels which kind of pulverised the little substance the show had into nothing.


The crime-thriller might have changed Sushmit Sen’s life for good but the show is just another casual watch on Hotstar. With shows like Criminal Justice, Made In Heaven, The Great Indian Murder, et al, Aarya is like a showpiece in your living room, gathering dust and no one caring to clean it. The only watchable thing about Aarya is Sen who returned to the screen after years of hiatus.

During the investigation it was revealed that Singh was in financial trouble with many loans and dues.

His father, Hargit Singh, filed a missing complaint on April 26, which led to an FIR under Section 365 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). His father said that he did not have any idea about his son’s financial troubles. He said Gurucharan Singh never shared anything with him. As a result Hargit Singh was not aware of this.
