The Holiday Review

A travel plan with friends that actually went through

This Zoom studio's original web series has impressive performances, modern jargon, and progressive outlook. It isn't every day we see bridesmaids being replaced by an all guy 'bride squad' and a bachelorette being replaced by an exotic vacation. The holiday isn't just limited to friends, clubs, and parties. It's about complicated relationships and tangled bonds.

It all starts when Mehak's (Adah Sharma) guy squad consisting of Armaan (Aashim Gulati), Patrick (Priyank Sharma), and Kabir (Veer Rajwant Singh) book an escape to Mauritius just before her wedding. All the actors do a good enough job and steer clear of ostentatious portrayals. None of that, however, is distracting enough to cover up for the similarities between the holiday and 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. Sure, the characters have been completely reinvented, the general idea still remains alarmingly close to a bachelorette turned soul-searching trip for the 3 childhood friends.

So far the loud and vibrant party vibe has been bright enough to cheer up a tiresome day but the lack of deeper dwelling into the headspace and personal struggles of characters remains in question. Regardless, I'll be on the lookout for subsequent episodes.
