Review: 'Tripling Season 3' delves into deeper topics not compromising on the warmth & essence that we love – India Forums

Tripling Season 3

It’s all about family – The Great Dominic Toretto’s line and pretty much the entire screenplay of the Fast and Furious films is what probably can be said to be summing up for TVF’s Tripling – but obviously, a thousand times better.
Apart from Gullak, Tripling is the only show from TVF’s brigade so far to be having a third season but it is a much bigger feat for this ensemble considering the barrage of names involved. Having had the opportunity to see all the episodes of TVF’s Tripling Season 3, what will release on Zee5, here’s what I thought about it-
Maintaining the Essence, Innocence and now, Nostalgia

To be able to spawn a third season is tough for a show that began to be about three poles apart siblings, living away in their respective lives forced to come together due to circumstances and head on a roadtrip. But writer Sumeet Vyas decides to maintain the essence and innocence in a very subtle way because that is what we fell in love with in the first place. The character traits attached to Chandan (Vyas), Chitvan (Amol Parashar) and Chanchal (Maanvi Gagroo) continue to be as hilarious, wacky but extremely adorable. What Vyas does even better as the writer of the show too is now work on the nostalgia aspect putting several callbacks in the show – be it the iconic Ma Da Fa Ka song or Pranav’s (Kunal Roy Kapur) outbursts in a scene.

Going a lot more drama than comedy; taking a backseat

Tripling can truly be said to have evolved as a show and thus have the characters as well. While Season 2 was a lot of fun, it did feel forced and uncharacteristic on multiple instances. However, with Season 3, the writers and director Neeraj Udhwani have gone back to the basics and that was hitting bull’s eye. We are not into outlandish situations anymore but instead we have (thankfully) actors Kumud Mishra aka Chinmay, the father and Shernaz Patel aka Charu, the mother in central focus. The parents have decided to get separated and not due to any problems but because they have spent a lifetime of happiness together and now want different things in life! This, of course, doesn’t sit well with the children and thus begins the story of Season 3. The idea to keep it basic yet layered makes Season 3 a massive improvement over Season 2 and it helps that the characters are given infinite shades to portray.

Amol Parashar

Kudos has to be given to Vyas for intentionally/unintentionally taking a backseat when it comes to his role of Chandan. It was all about Chandan in the first two seasons but this time, while he is very much a part of everything, the show chooses to focus on aforementioned Chinmay and Charu but more importantly, Chitvan. Parashar goes on to show what he is when it comes to his acting abilities, The fun-loving, ditzy and crazy Chitvan gets to be sad, vulnerable and hurt in Season 3 and the actor has given his career best performance. You feel everything Chitvan feels and I guarantee you will tear up on multiple instances.

Not So Chanchal Enough

For me, however, Chanchal continues to be the underwritten and underperformed character in the show. Chanchal barely gets any layers to play with here and hey, I don’t know if it is a loophole or the writers just forgot about it but Season 2 ended with Chanchal being pregnant and having a baby bump as well. Season 3 begins casually with her posing with Pranav for a portrait and it is never addressed as to what happened to that. It seemed extremely weird. It isn’t that Gagroo isn’t a good performer but there are scenes, where her expressions falter and doesn’t convince you as well as Vyas and Parashar’s does. Apart from her, the season also seemed a tad incomplete where issues were addressed, solved and everything but it felt like a void in the end.

TVF’s speciality – the subtlety and striking the chords

Oh boy! TVF just manages to do this everytime. Tripling Season 3 hits the chords more than ever with the topic in hand. What they do best almost always though is being subtle about their execution and messaging. The idea of parents taking the ‘bold’ call and kids ‘not accepting’ is done so well in the first four episodes that it is heart-warming. At every moment, you see Mishra and Patel put up an acting masterclass with their sweet on-screen chemistry and just warmth. The big confrontation scene in episode five became the perfect icing on the cake and that is where it becomes spelling it out. From the role reversals of parents being the kids and kids being the parents to them, kids not accepting their parents’ unconventional choices but expecting them to do so when they make such calls and just the sheer togetherness in this imperfectly perfect environment – Tripling Season 3 does it so well
The Verdict
In the end, Tripling Season 3 is indeed, as mentioned above a huge improvement on Season 2 and manages to strike a chord in every possible way right from the beginning to the end. The plot and end of Season 3 is open for a possibility of Season 4, even though it isn’t a traditional cliffhanger. Well, give us more, we are not complaining!
Rating – ***1/2 (3.5/5)
