Start-up is indeed the word today. Almost everyone has either opened one or dreams of opening one someday.
Presenting a fun take on the latter kind of people is the newest web series by The Screen Patti – Zeroes. It talks about a group of three friends Steve (obviously a Steve Jobs fan) Brijesh (the boy from the rich business family) and Lucky who is kleptomaniac.
Steve, the lazy guy who has irritated his boss beyond imagination, thinks he is not made for the corporate world, but instead should start a ‘start-up’. Such is his obsession with Steve Jobs, that he is always chewing an apple.
Furthermore, he doesn’t even know what product will the start-up deal in. His other two friends too are concerned about what is their role in the start-up. Instead of deciding what product they will make, they are more concerned about their positions in the start-up.
It is only after some prodding, the trio realizes they need to hire a sales manager too. Enter Pammi who is the Sales Manager, capable of selling a bald man comb (Quite literally). You can understand the level of comedy in the series with this fact – Pammi is called Mr. Parminder Singh Bhatia only by his friends. (I was literally ROFL).
With a proper team in place, what will happen to the zeroes? We are waiting for the third episode to know that.
What’s WOW? The series has got many nuances right. Actor Shivankit Singh Parihar gets the Steve Job act so right; you just want to see him doing it over and over again.
What’s Blah? There’s nothing to crib about in the first two episodes that I have seen. I doubt there will be anything in the upcoming episodes.
