Hoichoi's Indu Web Series Season 1 Story:

The story of the Indu web series is based on Indu (Ishaa Saha), who will start a new chapter of life with her would-be husband Saugato Dasgupta (Chandraniv Mukhopadhyay). It was difficult for her and her family to get over the situation that her younger sister Mili created earlier by eloping with Indu’s would-be groom Anjan.

The occurrence of a few suspicious activities during her marriage rituals and ceremonies indicates the fact that someone is trying to stop the marriage with Saugato. Her brother-in-law Sujato (Suhotra Mukhopadhyay) tried to be nice to her from the day she entered their house. He has a good bond with his elder brother Saugato & his elder sister Khusi (Payel De). Khusi seems to be the victim of physical abuse, though her past story is yet to be revealed.

Indu looked puzzled by the happening of continuous suspicious activities and mishappenings, but she was confident of resolving the mysteries. In the meantime, Sujato’s wife Laboni was murdered. To solve the mystery Sujato has appointed Indu as his personal Sherlock Holmes. Many questions remained unanswered in season 1 which might be answered in Indu season 2. 

Ishaa Saha & Suhotra Mukhopadhyay both were flawless in this series. Whether you talk about their body language, expressions, or dialogue delivery, both were outstanding. 

Suhotra Mukhopadhyay was previously seen in web series like Mouchaak, Mohomaya Chapter 2, Tansener Tanpura Season 2, and Paap Season 2 where he contributed with notable performances but he delivered his career-best performance in the Indu web series.

Ishaa Saha made her debut in director Anindya Chatterjee’s movie “Projapoti Biskut” & her two movies Torulatar Bhoot & Golondaaj already released this year. Her performance in Golondaaj has been appreciated by audiences.

Earlier we have seen her delivering some top-notch performances in movies and web series like Guptodhoner Sondhane, Sweater, MafiaDurgeshgorer Guptodhon, Buro Sadhu, Detective, Japani Toy (Season 1 & Season 2), Boyfriends & Girlfriends. She will be also seen in upcoming movies like Kacher ManushSahobase, Mahananda, and Kolkata Cholontika.

At times, the narrative looked slow-paced but director Sayantan Ghosal’s attempt to deliver a family drama with the elements of a thriller & keeping the suspense alive till the series ending was highly impressive. The execution was certainly not easy but he tried by leaving no stone unturned.

We didn’t see much about the past stories of Laboni & Khusi in the plot of season 1, so hopefully, in Indu season 2 we will get to know about these. There is nothing much to say about the genius Sahana Dutta as we have already seen her mastering screenwriting in Hello Season 1, Run, Tasher Ghawr.  

Director Sayantan Ghosal’s notable works were earlier visible in movies and web series like Alinagarer Golokdhadha, Byomkesh, Lalbazaar, Sagardwipey Jawker Dhan, Satyanweshi Byomkesh. His upcoming directorial projects are Swastik Sanket, Tenida And Co., Hirakgorer Hire, and Aji Hote Shotoborsho Pore.

Manali Dey, Payel De, Manasi Sinha, and Chandraniv Mukhopadhyay were the other notable contributors to season 1.

Special mention for Binit Ranjan Moitra’s music & background score, makeup artist Sandeep Neogy & stylist Jayanti Sen as the Indu series on Hoichoi would look incomplete without their contributions.

The series has been adapted in Telugu as Vadhuvu with Avika Gor portraying the character of Ishaa Saha.
