Creativity and talent have no boundaries. The Covid-19 pandemic has provided an opportunity for creators to think differently and come out with entertaining concepts to cheer up the quarantined audience. A Viral Wedding (made in lockdown) is a sincere effort with a view to recognize the invaluable services of various personnel fighting a hard battle and to entertain the audience sealed indoors.
An Eros Now Quickie, the show is a self-made short series made in lockdown produced by Shreya Dhanwanthary and Pratha Narang Naik by strictly following all the applicable rules and norms.
Nisha (Shreya Dhanwanthary) and Rishabh (Amol Parashar) are supposed to get married soon. Everything is going well but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, a countrywide lock-down is announced which spoils all their wedding plans. As there is no other alternative, Nisha convinces everyone to go through with an online wedding to which her brother Nishant (Sunny Hinduja) and mother Neena (Sonali Sachdev) agree.
This is followed by booking a pandit Ujjwal Pujari (Sharib Hashmi) to perform this wedding online. Though this may sound quite bizarre, everyone is quite excited and spirits are high until Nisha’s father tests positive for the virus.
All the actors, particularly, Dhanwanthary are absolutely brilliant. Despite many constraints and limited resources, she has displayed every expression with ease and performed quite admirably.
Hinduja and Parashar have done exceptionally well in making this wedding a very enjoyable affair.
The surprise element is the cameo by Hashmi who lifts the mood with his humorous touches.
It is Dhanwanthary again who hogs the limelight with her impeccable writing and direction. She has an abundance of talent which she needs to explore further and try her hand at other crafts too in addition to acting. The contribution of Raj Nidimoru (from Raj & DK duo) is noteworthy for extending his support to give shape to A Viral Wedding.
Even Mahesh Shankar’s music leaves its mark in this homemade mini-series. He has done a great job along with all other people who worked on the show from their respective homes.
More than anything else, the effort itself is commendable and all those who are associated with the concept, development, and execution of A Viral Wedding have done a stupendous job.
Nothing to point out. The series hardly has any flaws.
A Viral Wedding is definitely a Must watch. It is a unique and thoroughly fun series that is obviously relatable to all of us stuck at home. Also, it is worth showing support and encouragement to this kind of sincere, unique, and brilliant effort that proves creativity cannot be hindered by pandemics.
