Taish tells the story of how rage can impact the life of so many people if not properly dealt with. As the 6-episode drama unveils as we see Sunny (Pulkit Samrat) crushing the skull of a man at a local pub’s restroom which probably was how Bejoy Nambiar wanted to initiate his web-series on anger. The story goes in a flashback mode and we are introduced to Rohan (Jim Sarbh) who comes home for his brother’s wedding in the beautiful country side of London. He is accompanied with Sunny and Arfa (Kriti Kharbanda).

Directed by Bejoy Nambia, who previously helmed films like Shaitan and Wazir, the first episode of Taish will take your breath-away with the sequence of events which keeps on switching between the past and present but thankfully keeps you engaged. The subsequent episodes keeps the momentum until it starts lagging from the fifth and sixth episodes as blemishes in writings starts surfacing. The good news is that Taish never will take you to boredom which is written by Kartik Iyer, Anjali Nair and Bejoy himself while dialogues are skillfully written by Gunjan Chopra (credited for Pataal Lok).

Overall, Taish does falters towards the end but keeps you thrilled with its enduring performances, style and substance.
