'Sunflower' review: Sunil Grover leads the thoroughly enjoyable dark comedy

At the point when an inhabitant of a rich Mumbai condo society named Sunflower says, “This is a strange society,” her neighbor seriously answers, “The entire world is an abnormal society.” This is by all accounts Vikas Bahl’s fundamental message behind his most recent ZEE5 eight-section arrangement Sunflower. His point is to uncover each false reverence in our general public, while a homicide simply goes about as its impetus.

Audience knows who the murderer is from the get-go

The piece is flawlessly shot, as we see Raj Kapoor (Ashwin Kaushal), proprietor of loft number 1001, getting killed to the tune of a tension filled tune. Sunflower isn’t a whodunit. It presents emotional incongruity, where the crowd knows who the killer is, while the police lose their psyches over it. The “losing their brain” bit is generally contributed by Sonu Singh (Sunil Grover).

Grover plays Singh, a Sheldon Cooper-like clean-freak perfectionist

Singh is a weirdo, who is amazingly desolate and pitiably dreadful now and again. He takes after another spotless monstrosity, fussbudget anecdotal character: Sheldon Cooper (of The Big Bang Theory). It is a portion of Singh’s fanatical urgent demonstrations that continue to paint a liable picture for him. Grover, entrusted to lead the arrangement and its idiocies, is excellent interesting and doesn’t violate the show remainder. Fortunately!

Grover intrigues again with his adaptability after ‘Tandav’

Talking about his character, Grover had said prior, “Sonu has numerous temperaments and shades. In some cases he is a recluse, in some cases he is out in the open. It was a test however it set everything straight.” With this exhibition, the 43-year-old has certainly added another quill after Tandav.

Characters address canny reality by means of hued glasses of dark parody

The extra cast is a portrayal of the canny reality seen through shaded glasses of dark parody. There is Ahuja (Mukul Chadda), a fake polite educator, who helpfully takes out his dissatisfaction on his better half. We have the irritating self-named flagbearer of “culture” Dilip Iyer (Ashish Vidyarthi). Wearing high-power glasses, Ranvir Shorey’s Inspector Digendra is gathered, while sub-controller Chetan Tamble (Girish Kulkarni) is intentionally cloudy.

First season closes with cliffhanger, season two expected; gets 4/5

Sunflower connotes dedication and trust, yet nobody is reliable in its eponymous structure. Co-coordinated by Bahl and Rahul Sengupta, the arrangement isn’t without deficiencies, yet the general experience makes it beneficial. We anticipate finding solutions to many remaining details in the following season, as the first finishes up with a cliffhanger. Decision: 4 out of 5 bytes.
