Never Have I Ever: Teenager navigates high school in Netflix series

Netflix is set to release Never Have I Ever, a ‘rom-bad-com’ from Mindy Kaling starring the 17-year-old debutante Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, on April 27. The plot is based on Kaling’s childhood in Massachusetts.

The web series shows the high school life of a first-generation American-Indian teenage girl, Devi Vishwakumar (Ramakrishnan). 

After a traumatic year, all an Indian-American teen wants is to go from pariah to popular 

– But friends, family and feelings won’t make it easy on her.

Devi, an eager teenager, has a plan chalked out for the sophomore year of high school for her girl gang, which includes a dangling-earrings aficionado and an over-achiever. Her aim is to lowkey get laid and be popular at school. And Ramakrishnan claims one hell of a ride.

The trailer kicks-off with Devi reading an erotic romance novel only to be disturbed by the famous boy from her school in her dream. She groans as the alarm-clock bursts her raunchy-bubble. 

The teenage romance series promises a whole lot of high-school parties, social drama, Kardashian-wannabees and traditional parents. 

For anyone who loves exciting yet naïve shenanigans, Never Have I Ever will deliver just those with an extra bit of the regular American teenage experience.
