Episodes of Bandish Bandits
Padding up that wafer-thin story with inanities and songs is a terrible test of the viewer’s patience.
There is the rift between generations, the tussle between lovers, the tensions between purity and popularity.
The conversation around the need to revive interest in classical music, and the fact that there doesn’t need to be a rift between the classical and the popular, needs to be on-going.
Bandish Bandits is a good break from those predictable murder mysteries steeped in distrust, deceit and ample negativity.
