On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Netflix gave a gift to its fans. Pooja Bhatt’s Most Expected Web Series ‘Bombay Begums’ has been released.
‘Bombay Begums’ series is the story of five different women, in which women struggle with their desires, morals, personal crises and weaknesses. As circumstances change in the story and they are heartbroken, they have to make difficult choices. If there is a queen in it, then there is a Survivor. In this series, the story of women from different sections of society is shown.
The story is such that one day Lily’s son becomes an accident in the car of Rani (Pooja Bhatt). Lily’s son’s condition becomes a bit critical. Rani tries to settle the matter. But Lily wants not only money but also respect in return. On the other hand, Fatima’s story is going on.
She wants to leave her mark in her career, but personal life has its own commitments. Ayesha works in Rani’s company only. The corporate ladder wants to climb. But what is hidden behind this ‘shot to success’ is unknown to them all. How these five women are able to leave their mark in the personal and professional life while fighting this Patriarchal Society, this is the story of the series. Talking about acting, all the actors have shown honesty with their role. Talking about the main character of the series, Pooja Bhatt, after seeing her acting, it does not seem that she has returned to the screen after a long time. Another aspect in the series that should be praised. In this, women struggling with their problems find out their own solution. At the end of the series, no men solve their problems by becoming super heroes.
The writer and director of the series is Alankrita Srivastava. She has also written and directed critically acclaimed films like ‘Lipstick Under My Burka’ and ‘Dolly Kitty and Woh Shining Stars’, which came out last year.
