Parnashavarir Shaap (2023) Web Series Review: Parambrata Chattopadhyay’s storytelling looks impressive

The story of Parnashavarir Shaap revolves around four friends: Mitul (Surangana Bandyopadhyay), Amiyo (Gaurav Chakrabarty), Pallab (Arna Mukhopadhyay), and Titas (Anindita Bose). They embark on a trip and stop at the forest of Chamakpur, the very place where Pallab aspires to start his hotel business.

Upon their arrival at the hotel, Mitul begins to exhibit peculiar behavior, occasionally speaking in Nepalese and appearing frightening at times. As her health deteriorates, Titas reaches out to Professor Nirendranath Bhaduri (Chiranjeet Chakrabarti) for assistance. After hearing the details, the professor becomes convinced that the curse of Goddess Parnasavari is at the root of Mitul's condition. The subsequent episodes will unravel how Professor Nirendranath Bhaduri addresses the situation and pulls Mitul back from the brink of a critical condition.

Souvik Chakraborty's story Parnasavarir Shaap has been skillfully adapted by Sreejib and director Parambrata Chattopadhyay. Particularly noteworthy is Parambrata Chattopadhyay's vision in executing this horror thriller.

Each subplot is well-developed, and the back-and-forth presentation with proper backstories adds a nice touch. Chiranjeet Chakrabarti's portrayal of Professor Nirendranath Bhaduri aka Bhaduri Moshai is outstanding, as he almost singlehandedly carries the series, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.

Surangana Bandyopadhyay convincingly portrays Mitul, while Gaurav Chakrabarty as Mitul's fiancé Amiyo delivers an okay performance. Although Arna Mukhopadhyay's character initially lacks depth, it grows on you in the last two episodes.

Anindita Bose, playing Titas, appears to be the most underutilized character in the series. Given her capacity for delivering brilliant performances in supporting roles, her character could have been written with more depth, which unfortunately seems to be missing.

The music composition and background score by Nabarun Bose & Parambrata Chattopadhyay's storytelling are impressive in Parnashavarir Shaap.
