TVF Bachelors season 2 review

The viral fever, or TVF, is a digital pioneer noted for its excellent content. However, when cinematic licence is followed to its logical conclusion, it can be jarring and uncomfortable. This was our impression after viewing the first several episodes of TVF Bachelors season 2.

The viral fever, or TVF, is a digital pioneer noted for its excellent content. However, when cinematic licence is followed to its logical conclusion, it can be jarring and uncomfortable. This was our impression after viewing the first several episodes of TVF Bachelors season 2.

Every episode is inspired by a film; for example, the first episode was inspired by Shahrukh Khan’s Chak De avatar, while the second was inspired by Saif Ali Khan’s zombie thriller Go Goa Gone.

With their excellent performances, the main crop of performers perform with grace and interest the audience. (Jeetu is Jitendra Kumar, Jassi is Jasmeet Singh Bhatia, Badri is Badri Chavan, Shiv is Shivankit Singh Parihar, and Bholaram Tiwari is Gopal Datt.)

Jitendra, a digital sensation, ups the ante in his act and emotes with ease, demonstrating his acting talent. The ATM scenario has a bravado about it. The scene with the paychecks being acknowledged is relevant and nostalgic.

To be fair to the producers, (written by – Himanshu Chouhan, Shivankit Singh Parihar, Abhilash Roy, Co-Written by – Jatin Birajdar, Rohit Gouti, Badri Chavan and Directed by Amrit Raj Gupta) they chose a theme that netizens (young demographic) can easily identify with, i.e. satirical presentation of how to crack a job interview and office politics

The main issue is that the dark, quirky humour storyline utilised to illustrate bachelorhood concerns occasionally misses the mark. The first episode is still entertaining, but the less said about the second zombie episode, the better. The goal of using your imagination to turn a mundane scenario into something bizarre appears to have failed.

We can only hope that the writers take advantage of the one-week gap between episodes to add some cohesion to the narrative, which is now disjointed and illogical.

Also, considering the aforesaid constraint, a 20-minute run duration seems excessive, particularly if you’re watching on your phone. Having said that, this type of offbeat humour has its own audience. Haven’t strange western shows done well in the past?

Because TVF content is free to air, they must rely on advertisers and in-brand placements, which they have successfully exploited. But will that work here? As far as we’re concerned, the jury is still out.

The second season of Bachelor brings up the age-old subject of sequels. While it’s understandable that we don’t want a fantastic property to end after just one season, there are occasions when creators simply lack the necessary clout to carry the legacy onward. And, because the original was so well-received, public expectations are sky-high.

Because the storey is about bachelors, we’re confident that future creatives will address sex and relationships. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of witty device they employ to make us chuckle.
