The series starts with showing Rani Baa (played by Dimple Kapadia) in her haveli situated in Borderlands. Then, we’re taken to Mumbai where Bijlee is seen making out with Naina. Bijlee is Sabitri aka Rani Baa’s daughter-in-law. Rani Baa runs an empire of drugs and they make flamingo (a drug). At a party going on in Mumbai, the son of Deputy CM is admitted to the ICU of the hospital after he was diagnosed with an overdose of adulterated flamingo. The Mumbai Police is after Rani Baa’s empire and she also has other enemies targeting her.
People of the village respect Rani Baa but the day Haveli gets attacked, it makes us think that who could be targeting her and why were they attacking her. The first episode leaves various questions in mind and that’s when you start with the second episode. Rani Baa after seeing the threat decided to name her successor and all the second-generation people start competing for the same. Many secrets are revealed and you don’t know what you’re going to witness the next moment because the series isn’t predictable.
The action scenes of Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo deserve to be applauded. The eight-episode long series, with an average duration of fifty minutes each also seemed tiring as things could have been cut short. Despite starting at an interesting point, I think that some things were exaggerated and the potential of two to three cast members was left unexplored.
The series starts with raising high hopes and I expected a lot from it. The action and acting departments won hearts but the script needed some improvement and polishing as the show got boring in between. After the first episode, the stakes were high as they raised many questions in the minds of the audience. Dimple Kapadia played the role of Savitri and there was a reason why she was referred to as Rani Baa. Not only she was the queen in the show, but she also rules our hearts through her acting as well. Radhika Madan, Angira Dhir, and Isha Talwar gave stellar performances. Naseeruddin Shah also shined along with them. The series is filled with woman star cast and talks about various things.
The increasing trend of showing LGBTQ+ couples onscreen is followed in this too. Despite Bijlee being married, her husband understood her inclination and accepted her the way she is, not that he was the most loyal husband himself. The ending of Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo is unexpected. I wish that the series could be more than just finding a successor to the drug empire run by women. Talking about the costumes and the jewelry worn by the female cast, you can not take your eyes off them. With fierce eyes and moves, paired with their astonishing costumes, I think that they should win the award for the best costumes. Those traditional Rajasthani tattoos also looked pretty and I specifically liked how Radhika Madan was dressed in the show.
In my opinion, you can watch the show if you want to experience something rare. The show is filled with style, glamour, and boldness and deserves to be streamed. A lot of effort is put into this series and that’s evident through the lavish sets and costumes. The cast ensemble shined but what needed to shine brighter was the script.
