But as a whole, the series is where every major character tries to save some or other characters except the lead characters who are trying to follow what they love. The series focuses on two opposite music-loving people collaborating to create something new and the series follows the path of love, hate, fight etc.
The series has priceless music legacy, ancestral haveli, conservative Rajasthani family, and a romance between unlikely pair after teaming up for a band.
However, the series has kept up as not only being youth-focused where the actors led by Naseeruddin Shah and music provided Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, has managed to fuse both classic to modern electronic music with beautiful rhythms and its worth a watch if you love all kinds of music.
Apart from Naseeruddin Shah, actors such as Atul Kulkarni, Sheeba Chaddha, Rajesh Tailang and many other uplifts the script of the series.
Bandish Bandits is one of a kind of Indian Series that tries to fuse classic with modern. While the series does not touch with the fight between families, it focuses on a fight between two music schools represented by a pair of youngsters from either side of the cultural divide who fall in love and form a team called Bandish Bandits.
The divide also speaks about the attitudes and artistic beliefs of two singers, the lead actor Radhe Singh Rathod (Ritwik Bhowmik) strays into a pop concert by Mumbai singer Tamanna Sharma (Shreya Choudhry) and is instantly struck by the internet star’s energy and confidence. They meet and after initial hiccups, he decides to collaborate with Tamanna.
However, the pop star is in immense pressure to create a composition that turns to be hit and Radhe decides to help her gain a number of views on the internet.
However, Radhe should hide his identity to the world as his father Pandit Radhemohan Rathod is a fierce purist when it comes to classic music and he does not want the music to be commercialized. However, Tamanna who is self-taught has a career to build and protect. Radhe’s family has held the title of Sangeet Samrat for 2 and a half decades that Radhe should be the torchbearer.
Things turn a bit sour when the Bank manager has his sight on the old mansion because Panditji’s son and Radhe’s father has defaulted a loan which he took up to set up a music school. Panditji’s youngest son comes forward to help save the haveli and oldest son’s wife will be a mute spectator to these tragic turn of events.
Coming to Radhe and Tamanna’s story, they face numerous backlashes as they struggle to find common ground in spite of their different backgrounds. But the music which they collaborate does not stop losing its fade.
Soon they receive help from Sandhya (Tridha Choudhury), a girl with royal links returns from Belgium and her father seals a deal with his friend Rajendra for Radhe’s hand in marriage.
Ignoring the plot, all the actors in the series do a commendable role and the two leads Shreya Choudhry and Ritwik Bhowmik, do a fair job of conveying the range of emotions sparked by the twosome’s quickly changing fortunes.
