Swara Bhaskar is back in the news with her latest web series Rasbhari which released yesterday on Amazon Prime.
The lack of display is surprising though one look at the stimulating trailer is adequate to surmise why the show’s IMDB rating is embarrassingly low at 2.9/10. Swara substitutes up as a teacher and a seductress in this one. While many are hooking up on the show and admiring it, Twitter seems to have a completely opposite reaction as they are too much disappointed by the series.
Hilarious memes on Rasbhari are doing the rounds and it is trending on Twitter as well.
Here are some of the gems-
Starring Swara Bhasker as an English teacher with an obscure sex-obsessed alter ego, Rasbhari is directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat and created by Tanveer Bookwala and Shantanu Srivastava. It also stars Ayushmaan Saxena as Nand Kishore Tyagi, a teenage boy fascinated with his teacher.
Here’s the official synopsis for Rasbhari, from Amazon:
“Nand is amongst the rush of men who pursue Shanu, the new English teacher in Meerut. Upon his discovering her supposed alter-ego, the sex-obsessed spirit of Rasbhari, their relationship takes a new turn. A now matured Nand, takes up the responsibility of saving Shanu from the ongoing witch hunt by the women of the town initiated by his own mother, Pushpa.”
Rasbhari is the seventh series from India in 2020 for Amazon, after the Kabir Khan-helmed war drama miniseries The Forgotten Army in January, the black comedy miniseries Afsos from comedian Anirban Dasgupta in February, the second season of comedy-drama Pushpavalli from comedian Sumukhi Suresh in March, the TVF-created comedy-drama Panchayat and the second season of romantic comedy-drama Four More Shots Please! in April, and the Anushka Sharma-produced neo-noir crime thriller Paatal Lok in May. Rasbhari‘s addition seems to be a case of Amazon merely ensuring that it has released a new Indian series every month in 2020.
