Cutting season 1 review: Mayur Chauhan-Hemang Shah's preachy show is all talk and no fun

Cutting was made for the older generation and not the fun-loving one.

A still from Cutting season 1.

What's it about:

Two brothers Sunny and Bobby work in Perfect Look Salon. Sunny, played by Mayur Chauhan, feels haircutting is an art while Bobby, played by Hemang Shah has a practical approach to everything in life. Together, the two brothers solve every problem their customers face.

What's hot:

Mayur Chauhan and Hemang Shah are adorable as always. Their performances are spot-on. Mayur, last seen in Sambhlo Chho, brings in humour through his pessimistic character. Hemang, on the other, is likely to appeal to the fun-loving crowd and younger audiences.

Archan Trivedi and Nisarg Trivedi also shine, even though their screen-time is brief. They appear in the last episode and are a complete reflection of Sunny and Bobby as brothers. The duo is certainly one of the high points of this show, but not to the extent that you will want to revisit the show for them alone.

What's not:

Many aspects do not work in the favour of the show. For one, Cutting gets too preachy. It appears that the series was made for the older generation with just one or two characters who bring in fun elements.

There are a handful of younger characters too who serve no purpose beyond testing your patience. D_Precious, played by Aariz Saiyed, is an unfunny character who is so full of himself. None of the other characters is memorable and the very fact that the show is obsessed with preaching makes it a boring watch.


Trim your own hair rather than visiting the so-called 'Perfect Hair Salon'. Like one of the characters, Nisarg mentions, 'Nothing is perfect about it.' While imperfections are beautiful at times, we can't say the same thing about Cutting.
