review
The discussion of Lara Dutta and Prateik Babbar starrer web series ‘Hickups and Hookups’ started with the release of the trailer. A big reason for this was the story of the show, its theme. To many people this may seem like a story ahead of time. Director Kunal Kohli has tried to show the changing mindset of today’s parents in the modern era of dating, romance and time, who meet their children as friends rather than parents. Well, the story goes on. Akhil has created a dating app ‘Kechup’ and Vasudha is looking for love in her life through this app. Meera Chopra is in the role of Akhil’s friend Fatima. Vasudha wants casual sex, but this desire makes her experience on the dating app crazy. Vasudha’s daughter, Kay, is a girl of today’s age. A little stubborn, a little confused. Whereas Akhil needs such a love, with which his pace slows down a bit. The entire series is focused on the relationship struggle of brothers and sisters. There is no filter in the conversation of both. They talk about dating. Let’s talk about casual sex. There is talk of relationship and all such discussions, on which we often whisper while talking. In the midst of all this, something or the other comes that comedy gets a chance to spread its feet. However, such openness can make newbie OTT viewers uncomfortable.
