Reading Time: 2 minutes

Naveen Kasturia and Manvi Gagroo play a young, married couple who are much in love but have their own set of first world problems. Naveen plays the out-of-work husband and Manvi plays the wife who’s quite happy with her married and professional life as well. What happens in their daily life forms the first episode of the series.

The Good Vibes is a well-made web series and it keeps the audience engaged. The quirky characters add the much-needed spice to the proceedings and make for a good viewing. Naveen Kasturia and Manvi Gagroo, both perform well and show off the quirkiness in a heart-warming manner.

The first episode introduces most of the characters and firmly sets in place the pace of the web series – which is a fresh, engaging one. The screenplay is fast enough and doesn’t allow the viewers to linger on – because the main couple are vine-jumping from one issue of their life to another.

What we liked about the series the most is the flawless and subdued way in which the gender roles were switched. The series knows that it’s 2018, and such changes are part and parcel of many lives – so there’s no need to harp on it, showing it and moving on is the way to go ahead.

The basic concept of a newly married couple who are partying every day, even though it is just about beginning to create problems for them is new and could have been handled in any manner – but the director handles well, making it a slice-of-life thing instead of a philosophical take on modern lifestyles.  Some might feel that the alcohol arc a bit forced, but it is integral to the basic premise of the series.

What’s Wow: The performances are good. It’s good to see a frothy, uncluttered web series in the streaming space. There’s nothing much to complain about this web series, and we can only wait for the other episodes to run.

What’s Blah: Nothing.
