Mannfiltered review: A failed attempt at Gujarati Ted Talks

Mannfiltered is preachy. There is absolutely nothing that you haven't heard before.

A still from Mannfiltered.

What's it about:

Four motivational speakers spread awareness about a particular topic. They talk about a topic individually and later, as a group, with Ojas Rawal as their moderator.

What's hot:

Nothing about the show will keep you glued to the screens. From not sitting on the phone for long hours to spending time with your family, the motivational speakers repeat everything we have been hearing for ages.

What's not:

Sanjay Raval, the producer of Vitamin She and a politician, was the first speaker. He urged the youth to join politics, stating they can change the future. This is not something that we have heard just recently. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, among others, have been asking the young people the same for ages. Furthermore, Sanjay comes up with random gems like, "Where there's a will, there's a highway."

The youngest motivational speaker of the lot, Sajan Shah, spoke about 'The World in 2030.' He not only got preachy like the others but went a step further and made his speech sound like a rant. It's as though he was treated a certain way his entire life; there was nothing universal about the speech.

Sanjay Jha, a BJP politician in Gujarat, was the third speaker. He spoke about how the world has changed post-COVID-19 and that technology has replaced the human touch. He stated that the technological shift is likely to cause further frustration. The way he managed to connect everything to God was astonishing but forced.

The fourth speaker, Dr Jitendra Adhiya, does nothing but repeat done-to-death points about screen-time (i.e. gadgets).

The round table with Ojas Rawal as the moderator was a yawn as Sanjay Raval boasted about how a few young people came to him and told him that his speeches saved them from suicide. While the content or presentation wasn't great, the editing added to the agony of the viewer. There was an episode where the presenter Ojas Rawal's scenes appeared out of nowhere.


Motivate yourself to not watch the series and rather live your life the way you wish. You won't miss much by skipping this show.
