Escaype Live re-visits the dark truth behind the everyone-looks-so-happy on social media.
Similar to Tik-Tok and Facebook backed Reels where the users do weird things on Earth to increase their fan base, Escaype Live is a fictional and much more enhanced version of social media app, which also allows users to gain popularity by honing their skills and compete against each other and get the chance to win 3 crore jackpot.
Since the launch of Facebook in 2004 and its popularity over the years, there have been other social media apps which have revolutionized the world and has certainly impacted our life. With the launch Tik-Tok, common people became superstars doing pranks, stunts, tricks, jokes, dance, and entertainment for the sake of likes and followers. Though Tik-Tok was banned in India due to the misuse of it, Reels gradually became popular and people went crazy, attempting to do things that will make them superstar overnight. This is where Escaype Live scores in which the web series shows common people have become immensely popular by doing strange things but also faces backlash at the background. Hats off to the director Siddharth Kumar Tewary and his team of writers of showing the flip side of social media.
Disney+Hotstar has released only 7 episodes now and will reveal the final episode on 27th May. Though each characters played brilliantly by actors is engaging, the length of each episodes is sometimes unbearable and loses the track. Kudos to the art direction, production design and the cinematography which captures different locations of India.
Overall, Escaype Live dwells into an area never explored before with honest attempt. Go for it.
