What heat?

The past year has not been easy for anyone and the only lesson for everyone during this pandemic is that life is uncertain, keep your loved one closer. It has shown the importance of family and Potluck is an attempt to make one realize how important it is to spend time with the people who matter. The web series brings us a typical modern Indian family, parents who disagree with each other on anything and yet find a way to play as each other’s best companions, typical siblings where one is an exaggeration, the other too has the burden. many responsibilities and struggling to fulfill his ambitions, while the third, the youngest of all, believes in living an unconventional life. Their conversations and situations have ample moments in which you will find yourself smiling, perhaps remembering someone or some instance of your own family or even recreating the scenario of the series with your family and wondering about their reaction. There is one scene in particular where the father tells his older son that while I sometimes disagree with you, or at all, I respect your choices and your opinions. Or one in which you realize that, although each member may be different, have a varied opinion or social conditioning, it is your family that understands you more than you can imagine and more than anyone else.
The casting is perfect and Kitu Gidwani as the cool mom and the best saas (mother-in-law) will captivate you. Ira Dubey and Cyrus Sahukar make no effort in their roles and Shikha Talsania’s portrayal of a millennial woman and her afflictions are identifiable.

It’s not?

The series begins on an enthusiastic note with everything too lighthearted and upbeat and all the members very excited. Are you left wondering the reason why? Why is potluck happening? And you get to know the reason only after a few episodes, if you still haven’t given up on the show by then, that is. Too much effort is put into establishing the dynamic between different family members, but that is neither effective nor attractive. Editing could have been sharper to save time and focus on key emotional moments between family members, rather than making them too quick to process.

BL verdict
Potluck is a lively entertainer on the typical modern Indian family as we know it. It is mixed with conversations that highlight the nuances of each member of the family so beautifully, you would be left drawing parallels between the Shastris and yours. The pandemic has kept us all away from our loved one, Potluck will remind you how much you’ve missed them and will make you urgently want to be a part of that long-pending fam-jam.
