Synopsis: Lockdown is a music reality web series on Zee5, where various popular music artists, belonging to film industry and the digital arena, are paired with each other and locked down to create their versions of two popular songs along with a music video for both, within a time frame of just 24 hours.
The format of the show is new and creative, very much different than the music shows we see on TV. Lockdown is one of the examples of how successfully the music genre has been explored by the Indian web series industry.
The show is fast-paced and doesn’t waste a lot of time, jumping right into the 24-hour countdown.
The music in every episode, whether it is the background music or the recreated song, is exquisite and intense.
The collaborating artists, such as Badshah and Jonita Gandhi, or Kailash Kher and Raja Kumari, etc. have different individual styles of their own, resulting in a symphony between the two, such as Sufi music in combination with English Rapping.
The show, with its fast pace, will keep you on the edge of your seats and the entertainment level is always high during the entirety of the episode.
The music videos and recreated songs, which is a blend of different music styles of the paired artists, are appealing and will leave you tapping your foot and nodding your head to the rhythm.
The duration of 20 minutes for each episode is quite low. It doesn’t provide a proper sneak peek into the production of music, but gives just tiny glimpses to how the artists are coming up with the music and music video. .
Lockdown is unique, energetic, and highly entertaining.
Lockdown is Rapper Badshah’s debut as a producer, and is produced under the banner of his own production house Afterhours.
Raja Kumari has written songs for Iggy Azalea, Fall Out Boy, Fifth Harmony, and Gwen Stefani, among various other artists and groups.
