Love, Scandal And Doctors Season 1 Review: A healthy dose of entertainment and intrigue

STORY: A affected person’s homicide at India’s topmost hospital, places a bunch of younger medical interns below police investigation. However amidst hookups, heartaches, insecurities and complexes, these upcoming medical doctors have much more at stake than simply their careers.

REVIEW: A homicide at a spot that’s supposed to save lots of lives. Love, Scandal and Docs or LSD begins off with this ironic twist and doesn’t let go, all through its fifteen snappy episodes. 5 younger and handsome medical interns are attempting to cover-up a homicide of their affected person Asif (Pulkit Makol) from an inspector, who’s scorching on their path. However because the present progresses in a frenetic non-linear screenplay, chronicling the tumultuous previous six months within the lives of those medical doctors, it unravels each dramatic plot twist that one can consider. A lot so, that it’s exhausting to even sustain with the sheer complexity of the characters, their relationship standing, childhood historical past, motives and sexualities. It’s an formidable scale to seize in a restricted setting of a hospital, however the urgency with which it’s handled, is commendable. There’s actually no boring second because the needle of suspicion retains hovering over nearly everybody.

Whereas the fixed build-up of suspense is the highpoint of the present, the overwhelmingly busy screenplay does take its toll. For one, there’s simply an excessive amount of inter-mingling among the many senior docs and the interns (a la Gray’s Anatomy) and a few of it feels compelled. The makers focus a lot on their private affairs that there’s barely any house left to point out the actual medical stuff. A couple of jargons, thrown in from time to time and the flowery hospital setting, remind us that this one’s certainly a present about medical doctors. A needlessly loud background rating, undesirable abuses and the fixed backwards and forwards within the timeline might have been averted, contemplating there’s already a lot suspense and drama within the narrative. A couple of final minute dubbing points are distracting.

Rahul Dev because the straight-talking hospital dean Dr. Rana, is aptly solid and so are many of the others. The writers (Palki Malhotra & Prakriti Mukherjee) guarantee their characters are younger however not weak. Punit J Pathak as Inspector Tavish Singh is in a superb type, however solely when he’s severe. His makes an attempt at comedy and sarcasm, fall flat. Among the many present’s lead actors (Ishaan, Siddharth, Tanaya, Srishti and Ayush), it’s the ladies who rating excessive whereas the boys are sometimes simply left bickering amongst themselves. Ishaan (as Dr Kartik) and Siddharth’s (as Dr Vik) rocky bromance is unduly stretched, making their frequent face-offs and frustrations, fairly tedious. Pulkit Makol’s act as a drug addict wife-beater Asif, is a hamfest. Among the many girls, Tanaya shines by means of as Dr Sara, who’s each, blunt and sharp. Neha Hinge and Ashmita Jaggi as senior resident medical doctors Chitra and Sam are equally spectacular of their robust girls characters.

General, LSD is sort of excessive on adrenaline, with younger medical doctors in warmth. With a wholesome dose of leisure and intrigue, this one’s value giving a shot.
