The night the lockdown was announced, the same day started. Lovely Bhalla (Lubna Salim) is in Gurgaon, while her husband, Mr. Bhalla (Rajesh Kumar) is on a business trip in Chandigarh. His daughter Liza / Arundhati (Gracie Goswami) is studying in Jaipur and her son Sahil (Linesh Mattoo) is a struggling actor in Mumbai. They all plan to go back to Gurgaon for Lovely’s birthday but are delaying their plans.
Once the lockdown starts, they cannot go back home. Meanwhile Lovely’s brother, Yogi, gives him a birthday gift only to find out that the shopkeeper from whom he bought the gift must have tested positive for coronavirus!
This web series takes the popular social media format of phone video clips and polishes it to make it like a full web series. While only the first 4 episodes of the series have been released, the series promises as it accurately portrays life under lockdown with a family that is only slightly insane compared to yours.
Scenes of vigorous hand washing, celebrating birthdays on video calls, rationing alcohol too long hours are all related. The web series also shows how various people are dealing with lockdowns. While Sahil gets depressed and just sits in his car to leave the house, Arundhati decides to feed the pets.
