21st October, 2022 (New Delhi): From heartbreaks to vodka shots, the girls are back with four more shots in Season 3. Yes, you heard it right. The girls are back for another round—and this time, they will be more unapologetic than ever before (or so we expect). We have witnessed misadventures, broken friendships, failing relationships, and professional instability over the previous seasons. Of course, the only thing that gets them through is their bond and a couple of shots at their favourite bar.
This time, the ladies are hunched over and weighed down by what they are carrying. The four of them simply want to leave the past behind, but endings may be challenging.
In one of the moments, the four women, played by Kirti Kulhari, Sayani Gupta, Maanvi Gagroo, and Bani J, toast, “Here’s to f***ing up!” Have they not been acting the same way since the start of the show? Making messes and cleaning them up is something we have seen before. But committing mistakes over and over again and learning from them is what makes the show interesting. Seeing the characters evolve as the story unfolds is a real delight for the audience.
Anjana Menon (Kulhari) has been mired in the past since the start of the series. Her past revolves around her ex-husband, Varun (Neil Bhoopalam), who is never truly out of her sight or mind. In one of the episodes, there is a scene when she just starts yelling about how, despite being remarried, he is still the same and hasn’t changed. She still puts up with him and won’t let him leave her life. That aptly summarizes her entire season’s adventure.
Damini Rizvi Roy (Gupta) switches between two men once again. But don’t worry; Jeh (Prateik Babbar) is still there, and at one point in time, they are shown to be getting stronger together. She also chooses a new career because her previous job as a journalist and writer only made things worse.
The Spotlight Of the Show
In the last season, Siddhi (Maanvi Ghagroo) received the heartbreaking news of her father’s passing away. As a result, she is so upset that she is shown constantly snapping at people and destroying relationships. After the miscarriage, Damini (Sayani Gupta) is traumatized and unintentionally pushes Jeh (Pratiek Babbar) away. Anjana (Kirti Kulhari) has been able to smooth out the mess she made with her spouse, but Varun (Neil Bhoopalam) has made a chaotic mark on her life. Meanwhile, Umang (Bani J) leaves Samara (Lisa Ray) behind to open her own gym.
It’s hilarious how the show only half-heartedly depicts Umang’s repercussions for fleeing from her wedding with Samara, a celebrity. Not only was it a celebrity wedding, but also a same-sex marriage. Umang has little screen time this season.
It’s just encouraging to note that the writers’ favoritism of Siddhi has persisted throughout this season. After her father’s passing, she is spiraling, and the situation has been handled appropriately. She manages her hostility towards her mother quite well, who is trying to cope with the loss by dating another man. The show also strives to give Umang’s story some credibility by allowing her to forget her own identity despite being disparaged by others for her preferences.
But eventually, the show grows tired of her professional journey. Whereas, Umang’s aims are readily set aside in favor of relationship objectives as a result.
