Bobby Deol’s show has a bark that’s worse than its bite
Bobby Deol’s Limp Act Of A Dhongi Baba In A Stretched-Beyond-Endurance 9 Episode Social Drama
Aashram, a series about a conman in the garb of a godman, introduces Baba Nirala (an effective Bobby Deol) like a superstar in a masala film.
Aashram is best suited as a crime thriller in which a handful of decent people, including Rajeev Siddhartha’s investigative reporter, try to bring Nirala to his knees.
Aashram gives us one such ungodly godman, and his squeaky-clean-on-the-outside-and-rotten-inside world.
‘Aashram’ is well-researched and cinematographer Chandan Kowli and production manager Manoj Sharma’s attention to (set) detail is evident
