With the streaming industry booming, more and more content creators are looking at recreating real life stories for the small screen. The latest in this is Posham Pa, the web series that talks about a trio, comprising of a mother and her two daughters, who were finally revealed to be killers of babies. The three were active in the early 90s. This is our complete review of the ZEE5 Original web series, Posham Pa.
The series starts with documentary makers visiting a woman on death row in prison. As they interact with her, her story, as gory and bloody as it might me, unravels and makes the documentary makers begin to question the difference between right and wrong.
What’s wow : Posham Pa stars Mahie Gill, Sayani Gupta and Ragini Khanna as the mother and the two daughters. From the very beginning, the screenplay decides that it’s the mother who’s the most brutal of the three – while the two children have no other option but to go with the flow. This kind of unapologetic, female antagonist is rarely seen in Indian content, so that’s a plus point. Sayani Gupta has a striking get up and is easily the most visible part of the show. She does a great job of bringing her story to the screen. The screenplay is successful in creating the grossness, with the violence and the subtext.
What’s Blah : The twist in the end is dormant and seems quite staple. The series could have done without the twist and the story would still be a watchable one. While the film delves deeper and deeper into what happened, there’s no clear picture about why it happened. In a crime based series, that’d be relevant and wanted.
Parting Shot : Posham Pa is a good thriller with a psychotic twist.
Cast : Mahie Gill, Sayani Gupta, Ragini Khanna, Imaad Shah, Shivani Raghuvanshi
