When any project brings together two talented actors, you automatically pin your hopes high, influenced by the belief, that if nothing at all, the performances will make it all worth it. The coming together of Ronit Roy and Amit Sadh in the series 7 Kadam demanded attention and the trailer only fanned the expectations further. Released by Eros Now, the web series presents Ronit in the role of Amit’s father. 7 Kadam is a story based in Kolkata and revolves around a father-son duo who bond over their love for football. But as is the case in any baap-beta equation, there is no dearth of disagreements or clashes of the ideals. The story, as admitted by the makers, is full of ‘relatable instances’. But is it as ‘exciting and sentimental’ as their claim, so as to not appear cliché and be truly engaging? Read the full review below to know if 7 Kadam is worth being on your watch list this week and the upcoming extended weekend…
What's it about
7 Kadam is set in Kolkata and follows the life of an ex former football Aurobindo (Ronit Roy). Once a star player, he lost everything after an accident and is now chasing his lost glory through his son Ravi (Amit Sadh), who is as passionate about football as the father. And thus starts Jai’s journey to make Rohan the best footballer in the world. But the young man has dreams and aspirations bigger than his father. They take different routes, only to cross paths in a father-son on-field face-off in their biggest football match ever, which has the potential to make or break them as individuals and as a family.

A sports drama can have a lot of good to talk about. The drill of starting out, the thrill of chasing a goal and the insurmountable feeling of achievement that you feel as a character goes through the grind, makes any sports film an engaging watch. We wish we could say the same about 7 Kadam. The only saving grace here is Amit Sadh and Ronit Roy, who make the web series tolerable with their ace performances. The makers would have done better to focus more on just these two and their father-son dynamic than spoiling it all with juvenile writing, shallow storyline banal dialogues, over the top family drama, the random villain and the obnoxious love angle (adding to the grief with an in-your-face character) and the overall overwhelming accent.
Well, just realized we have covered most of it above already!
Watch it if you are a fan of Ronit Roy and Amit Sadh’s acting. But we suggest you put your week and the upcoming long Holi weekend to better use.
