So, let’s find out whether Four More Shots Please! Is worth your time or not?
Four More Shots Please! Review
The story of Four More Shots Please!
The series revolves around four friends Damini, Anjana, Umang and Siddhi leaving in Mumbai, the city that never sleeps. The very first episode of the series introduces you to this girl gang. It shows you how strong their friendship as they discuss their problems, cheerful moments over the drinks in a bar. Many movies and series have depicted guys doing the same but for the very first we are witnessing girls chilling out. Five minutes into the series you are bound to draw out similarities between 2018 released Veere Di Wedding & Four More Shots Please! However, as the series progresses it takes the story to another depth and focuses on various issues which a woman comes across in a day to day life.
All four of them are facing their own problems and peculiar circumstances because of their personal life alongside finding the salvation in their friendship. Damini (Sayani Gupta) is a self-made journalist and is the founder of investigator.com, a news website that believes in bringing out the news that can bring change in the society. Like all of us, she faces problems both on her personal and professional front. She is also an OCD and has a huge crush on her hot doctor played by Milind Soman. Then we have Siddhi (Maanvi Gaagro), she is the odd one out belonging to rich family living in South Bombay but she has her own issues as her mother pushes her to get slim and find a suitable guy to marry. Siddhi is low on self-confidence but when she is with her friends you see a charming and cute side of her.
The other two leading characters are Umang and Anjana. Both of these characters add a different colour to the story and you enjoy getting a peep into their life. Umang (VJ Bani) is a Punjaban from Ludhiana and has come to Mumbai to follow her dreams. She is carefree and lives life on her own terms. But she also has complications in her life as she is a lesbian and ends up in a relationship with Bollywood star Samara Kapoor. On the other side, Anjana (Kirti Kulhari) is a divorced and single mother but her life changes when her ex-husband gets into a relationship with a girl named Kavya. She is a successful lawyer but struggles with the sexual part of her life because of all of her responsibilities.
The character connecting all four of them is Jeh Wadia played by Prateik Babbar. You will surely enjoy his presence in a completely female-oriented series.
Is Four More Shots Please! Worth The Watch?
Yes, its absolutely worth every second of yours and you will find yourself immersed in the lives of these beautiful yet somewhat broken ladies. The creators have done a great job in bringing various issues faced by women in both professional and personal front to life. The chemistry between the actors is too damn good that while watching them laugh and help each other, you wish to part of their gang.
The series is surely not without its flaws and there are few of them. There is a lot of emphasis on the sex throughout the series, I am not completely criticizing it as there have a lot of men oriented movies around sex. However, the creators could have cut back on connecting basically a lot of things to sex. Alongside this few of the story-line make it look like an old wind in a sleek & sexy bottle.
Apart from this Four More Shots Please! is a joyful ride which is best enjoyed with your girl gang. A must watch series that gets you hooked and the climax promises, even more, crazier Four More Shots Please! season 2.
