Ten-Second Takeaway

There is so much we love about Delhi—the food, the heritage, the winter (the list could just go on), along with the various new things we keep finding to love about it every day. Here are seven web series that celebrate Delhi in all its madness. Ready to binge on these?

Baked

Touted as India’s most ambitious original fiction web-series, Baked follows the lives of three university flatmates who decide to start their own venture (a midnight food-delivery service). The series takes us through their misadventures as they struggle to find a balance between running a business and managing student life, and how they always manage to land themselves into trouble while doing so.

The characters portrayed are relatable, and the story is pretty engaging too.

Shaadi Boys

There is no shortage of Bollywood junkies in Delhi, and the lead characters in Shaadi Boys, Neil, Nitin & Mukesh, are portrayed as the same. Failing at making a mark in Mumbai, the boys chance upon the perfect platform for them to get rich, get noticed and get chicks (classic Delhi boys, right?). The platform is none other than the big fat Indian wedding, and the series explores their lives and how they go about doing what they do best (or at least what they think they do best).

Soadies

Obsessed with the reality TV show Roadies, Banto Sodhi, while on his deathbed, leaves his wife a task of finding the perfect Roadie in the family. This obsession turns the Sodhis into Soadies, and thus starts the endless search of the perfect candidate. And the family isn’t quite like you’d imagine them to be; Santo has a son who raps in anger {our very own Baba Sehgal}, a grandson who is a dunce and granddaughter who resents Roadies.

Taking us through the lives of the Soadies, this series is a laughter riot, and Baba Sehgal, as always, shines out throughout.

Life Sahi Hai

Much like Pyaar Ka Punchnama (a movie almost every Delhi guy relates to in some way), Life Sahi Hai revolves around the lives of four friends who shift to Delhi and start living together. These guys (very relatable Delhi characters) have their fair share of fun and problems, be it with their bosses, their better halves or themselves.

A great series that all guys would definitely love, it shows the characters getting used to their newfound freedom (which, as they soon realise, isn’t really free).

The Good Girls Show

This one will take you through all the fun times inside a girls PG in North Campus. We’re yet to check this one out, but we hear the girls-turned-women in the show will leave you chuckling at their humour and impressed with their journey.

Flames

Flames will remind you of your oh-so-stressful teenage years when boards exams were near and distractions were many. Plus, losing your heart to the latest crush was an obvious phase. Set in a coaching centre in Punjabi Bagh, this five-episode series is all about innocent romance and life that was different than the usual adulting woes.

Aam Aadmi Family

This show brings something fresh to the audience by depicting a side of Delhi that is anything but typical. Based in West Delhi, it shows an endearing middle-class family in their day-to-day life without the story proceeding in a linear fashion. Yes, there’s no strict plot in action but surprisingly enough, you don’t seem to miss it one bit.
