Bandish Bandits Web Series Review: Story & Performances

The conflict between classical music and pop music has been ongoing for a long time. The web series 'Bandish Bandits' sheds light on the enduring debate that still exists today.

After numerous attempts, Kabir (played by Rahul Kumar) finally convinces Radhe (played by Ritwik Bhowmik) to attend a concert performed by pop star Tamanna (played by Shreya Chaudhry). Upon witnessing Tamanna's performance and beauty, Radhe is left speechless. Tamanna has a manager named Arghya (played by Kunaal Roy Kapur) who handles her concerts and events.

Radhe's grandfather, Pandit Radhemohan Rathod (played by Naseeruddin Shah), is renowned as one of the best classical singers. He teaches many students to nurture their skills in classical music, including Radhe. Radhe's passion for classical music deepens, but he also receives an offer from Tamanna to collaborate and sing pop songs with her.

When Radhe learns about his father Rajendra's (Rajesh Tailang) financial struggles, he decides to collaborate with Tamanna and help his father. The collaboration is named 'Bandish Bandits,' symbolizing the fusion of pop and classical music. Radhe's older brother, Devendra Rathod (played by Amit Mistry), supports him throughout this journey.

Just as things start to go well, Panditji's elder son Digvijay (played by Atul Kulkarni) enters the scene. Considering Panditji's declining health, Digvijay approaches him to take over his position. However, Panditji has other plans and decides to pass the torch to Radhe. Digvijay is determined to win the Sangeet Samrat Rathod competition, while Panditji worries after witnessing Radhe's performance and pushes him to improve and give Digvijay a tough competition.

Panditji's hearing issues later force him to permanently designate Radhe as his replacement. Meanwhile, Radhe gains immense popularity working with Tamanna as a masked performer. Panditji arranges Radhe's marriage with Sandhya (played by Tridha Choudhury), but Radhe is unhappy with the arrangement. He seeks help from Kabir, finding a way to avoid the marriage proposal. However, Sandhya is ultimately forced to reject the bid due to Radhe's situation.

Upon discovering Radhe's interest and involvement in pop music, Panditji refuses to teach him. This leads Radhe's mother Mohini (played by Sheeba Chaddha) to take charge and prepare Radhe for the "Sangeet Samrat Rathod" competition.

The series' climax features a captivating competition between Digvijay and Radhe for the title of "Sangeet Samrat Rathod."

The performances of Naseeruddin Shah and Atul Kulkarni in the same frame are mind-blowing. Ritwik Bhowmik and Shreya Chaudhry deliver their best performances to date. Rahul Kumar, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Rajesh Tailang, Amit Mistry, and Sheeba Chaddha also deliver noteworthy performances. It's rare to witness such spectacular performances from all the key artists in a movie or web series as we have seen in 'Bandish Bandits.'

This web series marks the digital debut of the music trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who successfully delivers outstanding and soulful compositions.

Overall, 'Bandish Bandits' takes viewers on a musical journey that will leave their hearts resonating with those soulful tunes for quite some time. Season 1 of this series is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.
