Cast: Shantanu Maheshwari, Nityami Sirke, Kewal Dassani, Manas Adhiya
The pattern of watching movies, serials or any other web series and shows has appreciably changed after digitalization. ALT Balaji is playing its dice in the industry with various web shows and now it has moved a pawn with Medically Yourrs. This college-based web show is different from fantasy colleges similar to Rosewood High of Punch Beat or Karan Johar’s St. Teresa.
The story portrays the real life struggle of a medical student. Abir Basu (Shantanu Maheshwari) is the stud boy of KIMS (Kolkata Institute of Medical Science) with a pressurized career of being a doctor while he aspires to be a musician. His childhood best friend Nibedita Sarkar (Nityami Sirke) is kind of his secret enemy because Abir’s Dad always compares him with Nibedita. Nibe always looks up to Bijay Anand (Abir’s Dad) as he had saved her dad’s life also he is the city’s best surgeon.
Nibe always helps Abir in clearing exams whereas Abir finds ways to distract Nibe’s attention from studies by setting her up with a guy named Akshay. Kewal Dassani (Lolly), Manas Adhiya (Pallav) Priyanka Arya (Nishta) Radhey Lotwala (Vishes) are other friends of Abir and Nibedita. All of them are struggling with their dreams while facing the realities of a medical college.
No doubt the story tried to tell the life of a medical student but failed at some points. Students are always seen taking classes of one particular subject at a high renowned college which has only one professor named Chandni Ma’am. The story also talks about the irony where the students who wants to be a heart surgeon are always found smoking and drinking. The chronicle is throughout narrated by Kewal Dassani as he wants the audience to live the life while they watch but somewhere the narration was not required.
Shantanu Maheshwari who is the charming chick magnet has played the character of a cool dude with unemotional attitude. Nityami Sirke has given a real performance of a ‘kitabi keeda’. Lolly is unaware of what is happening with him and why he chose to be a doctor. Kewal is amazing at being always high on herbs and studies pressure to score well. Pallav is a depressed guy with a lot of pressure of studies, girlfriend, and family. Each and every actor of Medically Yours played their respective character very well.
Cinespeaks Verdict: To join their medical group you should surely watch this series as it will make you realize the real struggle of a student chasing their dreams. You can binge watch Medically Yourrs the show of 10 episodes only on ALT Balaji app.
