Synopsis

‘Rasbhari’ is an erotica that never gets crass and sleazy. Although, it succeeds to a reasonable extent in making the theme of sexual liberation and awakening a subject to ponder upon, it’s the open-ended climax that leaves one perplexed.

Rasbhari Season 1 Review : A half-hearted take on erotica

STORY: Nand Kishore Tyagi (Ayushmaan Saxena), a teenage boy, is infatuated with his English teacher Shanoo madam (Swara Bhasker). Where is this one-sided relationship headed?

REVIEW: It’s a provocative series that deals with the adolescent curiosities of both genders. Set in Meerut, teenager Nand Kishore has set a target for himself: that he wants to lose his virginity before high school ends. But it seems like a far-fetched dream, considering he refers to every other girl in school as his sister. Nand even ignores Priyanka (Rashmi Agdekar), who likes him and always keeps on dropping hints about her attraction towards him. However, the new married English teacher in school fans his fantasies. As soon as Shanoo arrives in town, everyone is awestruck by her beauty and that includes Nand. He is drawn towards her and decides to persuade the dashing desi beauty.

In no time, Shanoo becomes the talk of the town, with all the local guys swooning over her. They go as far as making loose claims that they have had sex with her. Furious, Nand starts keeping a tab on her visitors and even enrolls himself for private tuitions with the much in demand teacher. And that’s when he learns that there is another side to this femme fatale: she is also a sex-obsessed spirit. Now, we have to wait and see if Nand will get to fulfill his lustful desires?

Swara Bhasker’s alter ego, the sexy siren Rashbari, is mystery personified and adds the right amount of sensuality to the story with her presence. But as Shanoo, she has nothing much to offer other than being an attractive school teacher. Her appearance is a gentle reminder of Sushmita Sen’s ‘hot professor’ act from the movie 'Main Hoon Na'. However, narrator-actor Ayushmaan Saxena as the lust-struck teenager Nand, delivers a decent performance. Rashmi Agdekar and Ayushmaan project the sexual fantasies of the younger generation with ease.

The series consists of eight episodes, but unfortunately, the story picks up only in the latter half. Writer Shantanu Shrivastava uses Swara’s character as a metaphor to showcase how sexually suppressed Indians are. He tries to throw light on how women are treated in our patriarchal society but that seems like a half-baked effort. The dialogues, especially the conversations between Nand and his two besties Vipul (Akshay Suri) and Bhalla (Akshay Batchu), lend humour to the script.

On a positive side, Nikhil Nagesh Bhat’s ‘Rasbhari’ is an erotica that never gets crass and sleazy. Although, it succeeds to a reasonable extent in making the theme of sexual liberation and awakening a subject to ponder upon, it’s the open-ended climax that leaves one perplexed. The small-town vibe has been captured well in the series, which is accompanied by relatable characterisation.

The intent of ‘Rasbhari’ is to be a bold adult comedy but it fails to enthrall.
