If the name Devika Dharam Dwivedi wasn’t enough, here are five more reasons for you to grab a bucket of popcorn and binge-watch the series on your girls’ night out.
A modernized version of DevdasDev DD and Dev DD 2 are the modernized version of Devdas. The societal issues that are usually brushed under the carpet including, feminism, sexism, and homophobia, are stressed upon. The story revolves around Vicky (Devika), the type of badass girl who generally gets frowned upon by society. A real feminist at heart who does think on her terms. Vicky is a carefree girl who drinks and smokes as she pleases and is unapologetically true to herself. But she is her father’s pride, and he loves his daughter the way she is. Vicky meets Paro, aka Parth, whom she falls in love with and gets heartbroken. It is a much better and realistic version of Devdas. Heartbreaks, falling in love, dealing with parents, etc. is giving a more realistic touch.
The story is an escape.We watch shows to escape reality, and Dev DD helps you do just that. For that time, you have swept away into a different world. A world where there are so many possibilities. Many things will crack you up and so many ‘Aww’ moments that will make you fall in love with the story and the characters, whether Anurag’s maturity or Paritosh’s over-the-top romantic lines. These two make you swoon with their smiles and blush when they speak their flirtatious lines. They make you feel like you did with your first crush back in high school, giggles and all. The series has an array of comical moments guaranteed to make you smile and entertain you throughout. After all, laughter is the best medicine for everything from heartbreak to physical illness. If you’re looking for a good laugh, Dev DD 2 gives you that as well. Fighting off evil with humour is always a fabulous solution. Dev DD 2 sends out important messages brilliantly and funnily, ensuring the news is remembered.
Double Badass DevikaDevika, her life, her journey, and how she takes a stand for her friends, family, and what she feels is right. Devika is a rebel fighter who lives her life on her terms and fears no one. She knows what is wrong and what is right. She is much more evolved in this season. It feels great to watch.
Celebrating the pride of queer marriageThe show talks about Queer Marriage, which is a vital topic to shine a light on. It’s saddening to see that our law doesn’t see the straight couple and Queer couple the same, leading to social stigma and ostracization. The colours and the diversity depicted in the series’s iconic moments are something to watch out for.
Ultimate BFF Goals It is always so satisfying to watch women have the upper hand, to be so fearlessly themselves, to watch a woman fight her own battles and stand up for what she believes in and those she loves. Devika Dharam Dwivedi does all of that and some more. Also, empowering her best friend to follow her heart and marry the love of her life happens to be one of the most beautiful moments in the show.
