Chumbak: 1st Series on TarangPlus


When the TarangPlus app was launched by Odisha Television Network, we expected some new digital movies and web series and that happened on this Valentine's Day.

On the 14th of February in 2020, the 1st web series on TarangPlus Chumbak started streaming. So, today I started watching. The 1st episode is free for all and the other 6 episodes are premium. Though I haven't taken the subscription but I can watch all premium movies and series.

The story started with a simple girl, Sikha played by Divya Mohany from Paradeep who met Manya, a modern girl played by Tammana Vyas at Bhubaneswar at a intercollege festival. Then they became friends, best friends.

When Sikha left after the fest, Manya felt bad, so she changed her college to Sikha's, then the friendship came to another point, where everybody questioned them. It's a college life friendship love story, which our people see in a different way.

I love the whole concept and the way of presentation, but in some scenes, some unnecessary slags are used. Yes, some people are saying such things in public, but we could avoid that, without those, the storyline would be the same.

There are two major characters, Shikha and Manya and apart from them, others are not well prepared for their role. the 1st episode was quite boring, some characters playing the role forcefully and seem they aren't saying the dialogues, they are reading from some promotor.

I'm waiting for the next season. Hopefully, next time the creators may focus on such issues. They may give their character more time to practice properly.
