Television Review: Everest – A Sad Regressive Tale

star plus-04It’s all about an army officer father disowning a girl child, it’s all about a girl who is looking for acceptance and it’s a story that is morbid and forced; well we are talking about Ashutosh Gowariker’s Everest that went on air on Star Plus.

The father is question is Brigadier Jagath Singh Rawat who always wanted a son and his wife delivered a daughter so this gives him reason enough to hate his daughter. Hats off to team Everest for putting up something so below the belt and outdated.

Everest is Anjali Singh Rawat’s story, a young girl who aspires to conquer her own personal everest of getting her father’s love and respect. At the age of twenty one, she is faced with the biggest conflict of her life and is forced to question her very own existence.

To redeem herself and find a place in her father’s heart she decides to fulfill her father’s unfulfilled dream; to summit the greatest and highest of all mountains, Mount Everest.

Everest, which is produced by Ashutosh Gowariker has been publicised as one of the most expensive shows on television and that’s the only claim to fame as the script of the show seems to be the most non-expensive. Oops!!

Everest lacks research, is bizarre and is full of mistakes. It seems that Ashutosh Gowariker has his own precipitation of how to climb Mount Everest.

You see Anjali in climbing gear, sans oxygen cylinder, walking all alone. There is not one person who can be seen anywhere in the vicinity. Also, I may not have climbed the Everest, but as a rule no one is allowed to climb the Everest alone. But then, Ashutosh Gowariker has his own though process that’s totally misses the mark.

Coming to the performances, well most the the actors seems to be sleep walking their parts.

It’s sad to see so much money being wasted on a product that’s not worth it.

Hoping that the show has a limited run and ends soon.
