It’s not just another heartwarming story, it explores longed-for and painful racism quite responsibly.

Ghar Wapsi Review by Nirmal Pathak: What is it about:

Nirmal Pathak has had the biggest revelation of his life and it has inspired him to move away from his real family. When he arrives in a town called Buxar, he realizes that there is a whole world that he has been deprived of for the last 24 years. He meets his real mother and Kit, who leaves him wondering why he was hired in the first place. Homecoming is an exploration of that question.

Homecoming Review by Nirmal Pathak: What Works:

The great thing about the evolution of the OTT space is that filmmakers and writers can now tell stories that go deep into their personal space and have an audience. Unlike on the big screen where Friday’s numbers and their prediction will decide things. Language is no longer a barrier (remember how much of a Bundelkhandi was a “problem” for some in wonderful Sonchiriya?) Well, it’s not a “problem” anymore.

Nirmal Pathak’s Ghar Wapsi is a serious step in that direction. The show mindlessly explores a scenario that is typical and may turn some off. There is certainly a lot of core material and some is just surface level. But, this splendor elementalist digs a little deeper. It is a universal story about a family that was once proud but is now partially single. Arriving home and feeling that there is a family that has been waiting is a feeling that Indian cinema has used for years. Song LIV Show adds a lot of authenticity and subtle humor.

So here a man is broken in many ways after knowing the reality. The challenge is not only to pick up the broken pieces and fix them by accepting reality, but also to adapt to a new environment. He has also kept a great secret close to his heart. Then we meet his mother who has waited 24 years to see her child. He was abandoned and left to suffer in longing for 2 decades. Her trauma has made her more depressed, adding to her the curse of being a woman in the stereotypical set.

In the background of it is the class division. The show manages to bring it out on a micro level. You can call someone from another caste as your friend, but you can’t let them sit at the same table. Children are deprived of basic needs, if that is not enough, they are beaten even when they demand equality. There are many more and you should explore them yourself.

And many of these are people who feel real and like we’ve met at some point in our lives. What helps the most here is the relativity factor. Nothing seems invented or forced. There is a sense of belonging and she is charming. Thanks to cinematographer Girish Kant for capturing the cracks between the corridor, the ceiling and the walls, who have lived it so beautifully. His uncut one-shot creates impact that keeps you hooked. This is the music of Rohit Sharma.

Nirmal Pathak’s Ghar Wapsi Review: Stellar Performance:

Alka Amin is the star of the show. There’s not a single moment where she seems like she’s playing a character written by someone. She seems to have lived through the pain, the longing, and all the other emotions. It is he and his contemporaries who have worked without obtaining the worthy recognition that should be celebrated. Also Garima Vikrant Singh.

Vaibhav, who learns everything here, is an elementalist. While the order is his, he is also the one who must be on the receiving end. While the emotional scenes seem to have been better, the actor is excellent. He plays the role of a man of few words and he has to try to mold that character.

Akash Makhija also deserves great recognition. He plays a character that kind of brings drama to this universe and he’s amazing as Aatish. I would love to see more of him.

Nirmal Pathak’s Ghar Wapsi Review: What Doesn’t Work:

The passage from family drama to social drama is not subtle. Yes, it feels natural when prompted, but it turns into a tumultuous ride when it delves into the angle of full-blown caste politics.

Nirmal Pathak Homecoming Review: Last Words:

It can take shape as another panchayat if it just keeps getting better. Give it a try and let the emotions take control. There is enough heart, soul and conscience here to make you feel warm and aware at the same time. Drunkenness!
