If there were a perfect family show, it would be “Potluck Season 2”. It is an Indian comedy-drama directed by Rajshree Ojha that revolves around the lives of the epic Shastri family. Season 1 outlined the importance of family, relationships, and balance. Season 2 is all about the re-discovery of these characters.

Potluck means “A meal or party to which each of the guests contributes a dish.”

Review: 'Potluck' S2 relives the humor amid the adorable dysfunctionality of Shastris


Written by Gaurav Lulla, Bharat Misra, Ashwin Lakshmi Narayan, the series is about people making the best of their situations. Every character on the show takes some chances in their lives, for good or bad.

The Shastri family isn’t idiosyncratic. They have their share of issues and conflicts, and they also know how to resolve them and come together like one big happy family all over again.



Potluck is a  light-hearted family with various colors to offer to the palette. Every family member is different from the others, and despite that, they stick together as a family. The Shastris try to step into the newness of their lives with a constant rabble of emotions riled into one.  The conversations (and not dialogues) hit home and at some points, hit hard

Cyrus Sahukar carries his chaos and confusion well, and so does Ira Dubey who plays Akansha. Kitu Gidwani brings a certain sense of warmth and fuzz into her performance.

Potluck Season 2 Review: An Harmless Drama That Exists In Its Bubble But Is Also Enjoyable

Season 2 revolves around how Pramila wants to take up the Beauty Pageant and do something for herself at 60. Akansha has taken a new job, and Vikrant is trying to handle the responsibility of a super Dad. Dhruv, who lost his job, is trying his hands on his new business ventures, whereas Nidhi is striving to become a non-planner. It is a breath of fresh air in the world of web series.  The maker is interested and invested in the people she creates on screen. As an more curious to know how they’ll resolve their conflicts and not what they’ll wear in the next scene.


What We Love

We finally have a show that is not overdramatic, unrealistic, or the usual drama. Instead, it’s a platter of emotions, laughter, love, and madness wrapped into an amiable family. This show will undoubtedly strike the chords of your heart and teach your life lessons.


What We Don’t Love

The excessive elaboration of family drama runs across the show.
