In a country like India, there have been many spiritual leaders and gurus that have been followed by millions of devotees. Centered around this backdrop, Aashram, directed by Prakash Jha is now streaming on MX Player. The series stars Bobby Deol in the lead.
In this series we also saw a character Pammi who is a headstrong, goal-oriented young girl, isn’t afraid to dream big despite the limitations imposed by society. She is undaunted by the system and constantly challenges stereotypes with the belief that honesty and sincerity will always win.
Circumstances see her losing all faith and hope which is when Kashipur wale Baba Nirala enters her life like a ‘Maseeha’. Pammi is immediately drawn into his devotion. In spite of facing objection from her family she decides to become a Sadhvi and eventually succeeds in getting Baba’s permission to stay in Ashram. Will she ever be able to get out?
Based in the fictional city of Kashipur, the web series revolves around an empire created by a self-proclaimed Godman, Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala. The show’s leading man, Bobby Deol in this edgy avatar of a messiah is absolutely thrilling and the plot revolves around the undying loyalty he commands and the unwavering blind faith followers have in him and his Aashram.
‘Aashram’ also features Chandan Roy Sanyal, Anupriya Goenka, and Darshan Kumaar among others. The show is streaming on MX Player.
