Four More Shots Please Season 3 review:

After I watched the trailer of Four More Shots Please! Season 3, I was not very convinced to watch the series and well, after watching the show, it didn’t let me down. Yes, there are certain things I absolutely loved and there are quite a few scenes which was a drag. The Four More Shots Please! Season 3 is touted to be three times sassier and entertaining; however, the makers also seemed to have added an ample amount of drama as well.

What I liked is how they are empowering women. SPOILER ALERT! There was a scene where Siddi’s ex-boyfriend strips her image during the stand-up gig. However, Siddhi standing up for herself is quite amazing, showing that not all women play the victim card. It also amazes me to see when Siddhi stands up for her mother when a woman accuses her to lure other men with her beauty. The scene seems quite powerful when a woman is absolutely shamed by other women when her husband dies and all the men around her just want a piece of her.

Story:

A story of four female friends from different walks of life dealing with romance, work-life conflicts, ambitions and anxieties in modern-day India. But above all, the one thing that keeps them going is their friendship and love and affection towards each other.

Star Performances: 

Sayani Gupta as Damini Rizvi Roy is a writer and an activist who finds power in writing meaty stories, and who likes to control situations rather than succumbing to them. Damini tries to get over her miscarriage with the help of her boyfriend but amidst the journey, she feels less of herself. However, Dee finds herself at a crossroads when she shuffles between two guys. Sayani plays her part well as if she understands her character better and enacts it accordingly.

Kirti Kulhari plays the role of Anjali who not only has to babysit an 8-year-old daughter but also a 30-year-old boy (yes, boy, didn’t have the guts to say a man) who has the soul of a 13-year-old. Amidst her messy life, Anjali also has to sort out her messy professional life after getting involved with her married colleague. Kirti portrays her bossy and vulnerable side quite nicely and with ease.

Maanvi Gagroo as Siddhi Patel is sassy, savage and unapologetic. Siddhi has lost her father and is completely broken inside but it feels she doesn’t accept it wholeheartedly. Siddhi leaves her stand-up comedian and dons the entrepreneur coat. Maanvi once again nails her role; however, she overdoes it in some parts which can be avoided.

Bani J essays the role of a fitness instructor Umang aka Mangs. She called off her wedding with Samara Kapoor and ventures into a new life where she starts up her own business with the help of her bestie Siddhi. With this new life, Umang discovers plenty of new adventures when new people enter her life. Just like in the previous seasons, Bani again doesn’t leave me amazed with her character or with her act. She seems confined and rigid.

Simone gets a meatier role than what we have seen in the previous seasons. Instead of being a toxic mother, she is rather apologetic and mellow towards her daughter and the situation as she lost her husband on the show.

Shilpa Shukla and Jim Sarbh are the new addition to the story and they add a lot of freshness to the over-dramatic series.

While talking about the men on the show, Prateik Babbar, Samir Kochhar, and Neil Bhoopalam have very less to offer to the show which is completely fine as FMSP is all about women. Prateik looks hot AF but there’s a little mystery to his character which makes you want to unfold it ASAP. Samir has limited screen space and all he does is give out brooding and pensive looks on different occasions of time whereas Neil seems to be in his usual self, being a little cocky and goofy and he does with perfectly.

Conclusion:

Four More Shots Please! Season 3 is a fun watch only if you have enjoyed the last two seasons of the show. The series has a messy narrative as well and thus doesn’t make it a good watch. I absolutely liked the first season of the show but after the second season, the graph seems to be going down.
