Good Computer could be our answer to every futuristic film in Hollywood, but in the end it becomes just an unfulfilled dream,” sighs Mumita Bhattacharjee.

It’s time for India to make a futuristic film that we can be proud of.

After watching Good Computer trailer, I was really excited. But it is clear that I expected too much.

Good Computer starts off so well that when it plummets, you’re left with a broken heart.

It’s 2031, gadgets and technology are everywhere.

Traffic police hologram, unmanned vehicles and, of course, flying cars.

The cyber cell of the Goa police receives information about an accident in which a robot car killed a man.

ACP Saajan Kundu (Vijay Verma) arrives at the scene to investigate. His former partner Lakshmi Suri (Radhika Apte) is also sent for the same.

They clearly have unresolved issues as they argue over every aspect of the crime scene.

While Lakshmi argues that the robots are not designed to harm humans, Saajan is convinced that the victim was killed by an artificial intelligence vehicle.

The rest of the series focuses on how they unearth the real truth together.

Good ComputerThe first scene is the crime scene. You immediately like a lot of it.

You love how Monalisa, played by Kani Kusurti, explains the crime and the protocol behind it.

Vijay Verma’s crooked process to fix the crime, moving bots doing their thing, Radhika Apte’s persuasion of the AI, and the return of the consciousness of the AI ​​machine with the typical “Chief kahan hun/ taunt. Yes, they can talk!

What is better is the setting.

Just because it’s futuristic, the country hasn’t turned into a dismal junkyard after the invasion of technology, as portrayed in many Hollywood films.

It is rather the coexistence of people and machines created by people. They didn’t suddenly start wearing metallic clothes to look the part.

There is also no over-inclusion of technology, it is limited to just data evaluation and support.

So the transition to 2031 in the series is smoother than in many other films of the same genre.

Watch the scene where Radhika Apte explains what went wrong with Adjib, an artificial intelligence robot that is out of control. Very neat and well done!

Unfortunately, this stimulating opening, created by writer-director Pooja Shetty and Neil Pagedar, drops off significantly within 15 minutes of the first episode.

The quarrel between Saajan and Lakshmi is so tiresome that many could turn it off right here.

It’s an endless scene!

They cannot identify the victim, despite modern gadgets.

CID the series did it better even when they didn’t have the technology or used Microsoft Paint!

The rest of the episodes are just as unworthy, because to make everything sound funny and bizarre, they get lame.

The narrative goes all over the place as they don’t point in any direction in this six-episode series.

The surprising thing is that this is a futuristic comedy and yet none of the jokes hit the mark. It even has an outdated reference to unisex Punjabi names. That’s it 2010!

Vijay Verma is great as Saajan. It depicts a man with an innate suspicion of robots and humans who handle them with perfect emotion.

Radhika Apte is perfect as someone who believes in machines and believes they will never break the law.

Jackie Shroff is, unfortunately, tolerable.

The star of the series is Kani Kusurti, who played Malayali Monalisa.

Her return, mannerisms, sometimes blank expression to indicate how she feels, and her camaraderie with Saajan are just brilliant!

Ashfaq as Sarang Sathai comes in second place because he is so naive and sweet.

Good Computer could be our answer to every futuristic movie in Hollywood, but it ends up being just a pipe dream.

Watch only for the sake of Kani Kusurti and Kani Kusurti!
