As the web series Never Kiss Your Best Friend starts to stream at the digital media, it would be interesting what is good and bad in it. The web series is based on the best selling novel with the same title by Sumrit Shahi. In a single sentence, we can call it a staple drama giving the feel of Karan Johar film – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
The series is all about two best friends Sumer and Tanie. They are good friends and not a couple but despite being good buddies there comes a situation when they kiss each other. Then follows the self-guilt which only could fill with time, making them separate. So, what goes next is interesting to catch in the web series on your device.
Talking about the positives first, the makers are successful enough to narrate the romance so well. The writers did a good job of presenting the best story rather than making it a vanilla romance plot. The two characters in the series are of headstrong people somewhere seen at the same level. Both the characters somewhere behave like Ranbir and Anushka from the said Karan Johar film. You could catch some power-packed performances making you feel nostalgic about the said movie.
Now, talking about the downside, it has more negatives than the brownie points. While catching the series, you would never come out form the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil hangover. Similar things happening, they meet and become best friends in five minutes then comes the song and many more things you have already seen in the said movie. More often the series becomes predictable thus giving you too many loo breaks.
The last word
The series is likely to haunt and shatter you. It can be breezy to watch at times but the next moment you get the feel of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil that can prompt you to stop the show and move on. Well, if you are watching it catch it with clean heart without even caring for ADHM then it can be a worthy watch series. Ratings – 2.5.
