A 24-year-old Mumbai boy, like a tadpole, is desperate to lie down. what’s the big deal? The great thing is that when the boy dutifully does the bidding of his fiery hormones, his heart and mind go astray to push him.
Like most ludicrous boys of his age, Ray (Vihaan Samat), the lead character whose state of mind describes the title of this new Netflix series, gets ahead of himself in his zeal for routine and messes around. forever confused and longing for loveWritten and directed by Rahul Nair, is a strange, strange study of the misadventures of a young man in search of a stable date.
The eight-episode series hinges on the younger son of a senior marketing executive (Rahul Bose) of a diaper maker. Learn to hold on to your own shit before triggering a stink, her old man advises the guy to get into trouble on a blind date and need a loud talk.
It is neither his father nor his mother (suchitra Pillai) whom Ray trusts. He has the best role in his life. All his faith is blinded and reserved solely for the idol of a magician who hangs from a keychain—an embodiment of the boy’s candid, shrewd conscience. The imaginary confidant speaks incessantly and repeatedly reminds the boy that he is an embarrassment.
Ray’s relentless, rat-a-rat, raucous pranks for better or worse, with his ‘inner voice’, takes up the largest chunk of the narrative. Uncompromising verbal eviction is fine, but sometimes too breathless to have full effect.
The girls swim in and out of Ray’s classroom as their focus and intention fluctuate. In his quirky ways, Ray can never shy away from mindlessness.
The wise magician accuses him of self-sabotage and self-loathing.
Several actresses – Namrata Sheth, Devika Vats, Tanya Katyal, Niharika Lyra Dutt and Ayana Gaziez as the daughter of the owner of the Japanese investment firm where Ray works – as immaculate protagonists in and out of the show, egged on by their guide Granted, learns the hard way that finding a girlfriend is no walk in the park.
The ‘voice’ knows best, but no matter what advice he gives, the young man manages to dig a hole for himself every time he seeks a girlfriend. Sometimes his parents set him up with the daughter of a family friend, at others a dating site directs him to a match, and still others come to his aid but to no real benefit. Is.
At least one of the many encounters backfires on the teen. Ray wishes that he falls ill so that he does not have to attend a party at the house of the girl whose parents want to meet him. What happens instead is that the girl’s father suffers a heart attack and the bash is called off. Ray blames himself for the unexpected turn of events. Vij also feels that it is right to apologize on behalf of the boy.
The breathless vis either grabs the protagonist’s hand, nudges him or pushes him into the deep end, depending on the demands of the situation. He spits out a series of ideas for Ray to consider and put into practice, but trouble never stops chasing the man.
A trusted classmate Riya (Dalai) and an office colleague Varun (Ankur Rathi), who is a few years older than Ray, also agree to offer Ray free advice. Both Dalai and Ankur Rathi are effective in their roles as friends, whose patience is often severely tested by Ray’s flirtation with disaster.
Ray relationship advice toy is voiced by Jim Sarbh. Despite not being physically present, Sarbh is the star of the show, a powerful narrative and conceptual presence that dominates the series. There are times when you almost expect the sound to get a body and pop out of the screen.
producer of forever confused and longing for love – Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar of Excel Entertainment and Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti of Tiger Baby are also credited as creative directors.
There’s no way to know if so many creative forces are responsible for this show, like a series of interconnected skits in restaurants, at house parties, in Ray’s workplace, around the dining table, and in the living room. , and also in the hospital cafeteria. The fair of encounters teaches the unsuspecting protagonist a thing or two about the opposite sex and the world at large.
Never get tired of hearing bad news for Viz Ray. The guy who made the mistake turns and asks: Why are you so negative? “I’m not being negative, I’m being realistic,” responds the toy confidante. Reality scolds Ray time and again but he walks on regardless.
While the series may occasionally reveal itself as a coming-of-age tale, it often launches itself into flights of imagination, some of which make landings smooth enough to pass muster. that do not do permanent damage.
forever confused and longing for love To an extent, it is a story of mishaps and misfires. After a date goes horribly wrong for Ray, the unstoppable Viz exclaims: “It’s your version of a horror story.” In fact, Ray moves from one situation to the next in the ardent hope of a life-changing miracle. That’s a lot of him.
Miracle is out of the show. It remains confined within a severely limited graph. forever confused and longing for love Clearly targeted at the Gen-Z audience, who will probably find it much to relate to.
Vihaan Samath has given Ray a likeable, believable quality, despite all the terrifying ups and downs he – and the show – have come across along the way. It may be retarded but for the most part it’s fun because Jim Sarbh doesn’t even need to be on screen to spread infectious energy. His disjointed voice works.
