GULLAK 2 review

Things have somewhat changed in the Mishraji’s household. Elder son Annu (Vaibhav Raj Gupta) has unfortunately not been able to score at the Staff Selection Commission examination and Aman (Harsh Yar) is facing his board exams.

The rest is however the same in these five episodes of small little realistic slice of life gems.

Pati dev aka Husbandji Santosh (Jameel Khan) is the same honest clerk in the electricity department. Dharam Patni aka biwi matlab wife Shanti (Geetanjali Kulkarni) is making that chutney on that seel baata (grinding stone – for the English medium fellas).

These five kisse not kahani written by Durgesh Singh and helmed by Palash Vaswani are straight out of middle-class life, especially from the small town.

Gullak Season 2 is laced with superb dialogues, moments inked with sly humour and sarcasms.

Narrated from the perspective of a Gullak (piggy bank – Shivankit Singh Parihar), the episodes deal with various issues like a marriage in the family, corruption, belief, faith, fate, bonding, joy, loss, gain, pain redemption and more.

The outstanding brilliance of actors – Jameel Khan, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Harsh Mayar and Vaibhav Raj Gupta make your stay in this household an enriching and enlightening one. It feels like we are in the house of Mishra’s watching them and becoming a part of their kisse. Sunita Rajwar makes her mark as well.

Final words

Straight from life once again, GULLAK 2 piggy banks on the values, tradition and acceptance of a common Indian household. The life and times of an aam aadmi – the common man, the harsh realities and the pure joy in simplicity. After the legendary Kudan Shah’s Wagle Ki Duniya the Indian sitcom that aired on DD National from 1988 to 1990, GULLAK by Amrit Raj Gupta (2019) and Palash Vaswani (2021) has those winning moments (kisse) that will now stay forever. A ‘real’ gem in every sense.
