The trailer of Feels Like Home straight away takes you to a fun, entertaining yet emotional journey of boys who will for sure connect with you.
Feels Like Home is a coming-of-age drama series directed by Sahir Raza, starring Preet Kammani, Vishnu Kaushal, Mihir Ahuja and Anshuman Malhotra in the lead role along with Inayat Sood and Himika Bose in supporting roles.
Four college going students, Preet Kammani as Lakshay, Vishnu Kaushal as Avinash, Anshuman Malhotra as Sameer, and Mihir Ahuja as Akhil Gandhi, rent out a house where they plan to pursue their dreams independently, and form a bond of brotherhood which is probably tested everyday.
Lakshay and Avinash have plans to party every night, hook-up, break-up and a lot more – they are the ones our parents warned us about! That being said, there are a lot of moments in the show that take you back to you college days leaving a beautiful sense of nostalgia. The series goes beyond the surficial level and addresses the real issues of boys and their inability to cope when things don’t turn out the way they want.
Sameer aka Garib Ghalib, is someone who sounds mature, looks sorted and presents himself above regular guys. But deep down he is scared of rejection, he is someone who has proper daddy issues. Anshuman Malhotra plays this character with ease and ventures into an unexplored territory of a serious character. He’s done a great job!
The lost soul, Akhil Gandhi portrayed by Mihir Ahuja, an import from Ghana, who wants to be a world-class U 19 cricketer finds himself struggling with culture shock and life without parents. There are times when he ends up getting bullied by his roommates – but that’s something he doesn’t mind, as he feels connected to them. Halfway through the season, he gets injured and doesn’t make the team, forcing him to confront who he is without cricket as his life. Mihir has phases and added his personal touch to the character which makes it extremely relatable.
Review: Feels Like Home Is a slice-of-life Take On Boys Turning Into Adults!
Four individuals, four different personalities and backgrounds, but one common threat, finding their space in life and all that it has to offer. Amidst all the party night, fun, Masti, and brawls over petty issues, these four boys find themselves transforming into adulthood, taking responsibilities, and facing the consequences of their actions. The narrative is gripping, and the arch of the character is something one could easily understand and relate to.
One line about the show – it has all the masala that makes for a perfect weekend binge. The tadka of nostalgia makes it a must-watch.
