Acclaimed filmmaker and National-Award-winning Director Prakash Jha, known for movies like Gangaajal, Raajneeti, Mrityudand and Apaharan, is foraying into web series with MX Player's Aashram, releasing on 28th August 2020. Having created ripples with its teaser poster and unusual disclaimer, the show promises to a dark thriller, with Bobby Deol as the lead character and main antagonist, Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala, in a never-seen-before role. The Aashram trailer has dropped today, and it questions how some self-proclaimed leaders distort the truth to exploit simple and innocent believers. This fictional story on the undying loyalty for Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala and his "aashram" is an attempt on the same subject and hints at whether it is indeed a place of faith. The 9-part webseries also stars Aaditi Pohankar, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Darshan Kumaar, Anupriya Goenka, Adhyayan Suman, Tridha Choudhury, Vikram Kochhar, Tushar Pandey, Sachin Shroff, Anuritta K Jha and Rajeev Siddhartha in pivotal roles.
BL Verdict: Aashram looks set to bring Prakash Kha back in roaring form after some lackluster outings on the big screen while also reminding everyone what a versatile performer Bobby Deol truly is.
