When Gullak first began streaming on SonyLiv almost three years ago, the show was like a warm hug.
Part 90s nostalgia and part middle-class goodness, it was quite different than much of what has been available on Indian streaming platforms.
Gullak tells the story of the Mishra family, a middle-class household in a non-descript small North Indian town.
Sometimes you feel it is set in the 90s but references to PubG ban and 21st century films bring you back to the contemporary setting.
The principal cast--Jameel Khan, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Vaibhav Raj Gupta, and Harsh Mayar--give us a glimpse of this ordinary family with ordinary issues. Their troubles are not dramatic.
The chemistry of the cast is one of the strongest features of the show, as are their performances.
