The adventure girls from The Trip are back! With an exception of Shonali (Lisa Haydon), who is replaced by Ira (Amyra Dastur), season 2 promises all the fun, drama and adventure that we expected and was promised after season 1. This story revolves around Ira, a risk analyst by profession, who gets cold feet at the last moment at her wedding. Nazia (Mallika Dua) happens upon Ira running away and after consulting her for no use, calls for reinforcement i.e. Ananya (Shweta Tripathi) and Sanjana (Sapna Pabbi) to help her elope. What ensues is an adventurous journey through Pondicherry, with the girls laughing, crying and facing their issues together; altogether having each other’s back through it all.
- The light-hearted comedy drama entertains as well as leaves us to introspect.
- The cinematography does justice to the scenic beauty, capturing each shot quintessentially.
- All the four characters, with their unique traits, meld together seamlessly.
- The background score used to complement the story is commendable.
- The hackneyed concept of road-trip and adventure is taken to a new level in this web series without being too mainstream or stereotypical.
- The series seems to put too much effort into trying to hold the show together with desperate attempts, at times.
- The brand integration into the series seems a little forced; it fails to merge properly with the storyline.
- The background story of each character seems a little vague and rushed.
To get a reprieve from all the run-of-the-mill drama or saas-bahu shows, The Trip Season 2 is the best option for a chill session.
- Sonam Nair, the director, has won Filmfare for her short film Khujli, produced by OTT platform Terribly Tiny Talkies.
- This season marks Amyra Dastur’s debut in the digital entertainment, who is currently busy shooting for Mental Hai Kya, starring Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut.
- Shweta Tripathi, the Masaan fame actress, is also working in Amazon Prime’s most awaited web series Mirzapur.
