- Broken marks another notch in ALTBalaji’s best web series. A few of recent shows by ALTBalaji, the content quality of ALTBalaji had gone down a little in a few recently released shows; Broken pushes it high up again.
- A story of heartbreak and loss, the series equally manages to add comic moments that prevent it from being a sob story. Also, the ending in the season finale is pleasantly unexpected.
- Vikrant Massey steals the show with his powerful acting, putting forth Veer’s character outstandingly, Harleen right there along with him.
- The ensemble cast contributes to the storyline promptly, blending with the main characters flawlessly.
- The show concentrates on mental health, an issue that has been in limelight recently, going hand-in-hand with the main story- and spreading awareness about issues such as anger management, escapism, PTSD, etc.
- The show does justice to the concept of modern dating and all its facets quintessentially.
- Extra points for excellent cinematography, soulful background tracks and most of all commendable plot.
- Nada. Nuh-uh.
Heartwarming and essentially beautiful, Broken is definitely a must watch.
- Vikrant Massey was recently seen in Amazon Prime’s crime drama web series ‘Mirzapur’ as Bablu Pandit, in a totally opposite character than Veer from ‘Broken But Beautiful’.
- Reshu Nath, the writer of Broken, also is the writer for ALTBalaji’s Bose: Dead/ Alive.
- The 3 original songs for the series- Sohna, Laute Nahi, and Yeh Kya Hua– were sung by popular singers such as Papon, Shreya Ghoshal, Dev Negi, Miss Pooja, and Milind Gabba.
