Laut Aao Trisha TV review: Jai Kalra and Rajeshwari Sachdev make the intriguing storyline interesting

Life OK’s new venture seems like a complete package and so far we liked what it has to offer

Laut Aao Trisha which was initially supposed to air on Star Plus aired its first episode on Life OK on Monday. Only time will tell if this drastic move has worked in favour of the channel or not.

Story

Laut Aao Trisha revolves around the missing case of an 18-year-old girl, Trisha Swaika. Daughter of business tycoon Prateek Swaika (Jai Kalra) – Trisha goes missing from a beach party. She was supposed to be back by 2 am, but that clearly didn’t happen. Her mother Amrita Swaika (Bhagyashree) and aunt Lavanya (Rajeshwari Sachdev) retrace her steps back to the party but do not find her. Her cousins, who also went to the same party apparently, have no clue as to where she went. Amrita and Prateek search all night to find their daughter, they finally report her missing. Using his connections, Prateek gets the best investigator, ACP Kabir (Eijaz Khan) on the case. Kabir meets the family and immediately realises that there’s more to the story than what meets the eye. After nine hours of searching, they find Trisha’s discarded phone on the beach. That sums up the first episode of Laut Aao Trisha.

The Good

The show starts with a crucial scene where Prateek and Amrita reach the police station and report the missing case of their daughter. It’s a relief that the makers are not planning to stretch every scene and frame. It establishes the main plot, the characters – the extended Swaika family, the insolent cop, the conflict and the first lead of the case in the pilot episode itself. The transition between the past and the present gave a feeling of moving from negative to print – interesting.

The Bad

We hope Trisha stays missing in the show. The actor’s hamming really turned us off. Trisha makes a montage of her father’s life. Now we understand the sentiment and find it rather touching, but what’s the point of making a video like that when it’s just a family party. Why is the character made to spell out every word she says – it sounds like she is preparing for some spell test. The chemistry between Jai and Bhagyashree is awkward.

Performances

We believe Jai and Rajeshwari were perfectly cast in their roles as siblings. They don’t overact nor do they look fake when they deliver their dialogues or when they are in their highest emotive state. Eijaz Khan adds a special flavour to the show. He plays the bad cop routine to the T. The two brothers Bobby (Abhilash Kumar) and Vivaan (Karan Jotwani) increase the glamour quotient of the show. While their acting seems average, we believe they have the prospect to up their performance. Bhagyashree seems to only add weight to the cast list, but her performance is just about average.

Verdict

All in all we think the show is thrilling, intriguing and has the potential to keep the audience hooked till the very end. Only a handful Hindi thriller series have managed to impress the audience; this one is definitely one of them. So make sure to catch this one every week.

Rating: 3.5 out of 53.5 Star Rating

    what kind of sickening episode is this..her cousins love her.. really..this kind of shows should be banned

    I agree the whole incestuous angle in the show was a little awkward and unrealistic as well.. I find it hard to believe that of all the beautiful 18 year old girls around, BOTH these boys could only find their cousin to fall for, and a scatter-brained one at that..I mean is there a shortage of women in Bombay that I don’t know about?? But on the bright side, I just Love Eijaz khan, he is awesome as the irreverent and eccentric cop with a painful past. Jai Kalra is perfect as Trisha’s dad and Rajeshwari is excellent as his sister. As for Trisha, I can only hope that the actress playing her either improves performance wise as the show advances or as the author states, stays missing! She is mediocre, to say the least..Either way I am hooked on this show and anticipate a lot of interesting twists ahead.
