Vikas Gupta and Ekta Kapoor's web series Puncch Beat, has been the most-awaited show. The show, which features Priyank Sharma, Siddharth Sharma, Harshita Gaur and Khushi Joshi in the lead roles, is streaming LIVE on ALT Balaji. When the trailer of the show was released, it was compared to Karan Johar's show Student Of The Year and many other films. After watching the episodes, we must say that the show bears similarity to Karan Johar and Yash Chopra's films, but doesn't fail to impress the viewers.
Puncch Beat Story
The first episode gives a clear message that the show is all about the four students, dance and boxing. There's no reference to any studies in the first few episodes. Rahat is an orphan who joins Rosewood High School, while Niki Walia plays Rahat's mother's best friend and principal of the school. Dinky (Harshita) and her sister too, join the school at the same time on their aunt's recommendation. Ranbir (Siddharth) and Padmini (Khushi) are seen with their spoilt gang of friends.
Ranbir Vs Rahat
Rajbir Chaudhary (Samir Soni), who is an ex-student (and champion) and Ranbir's father, will be invited as a special guest to the school. It is predictable in the first episode itself that Ranbir and Rahat have a connection (Rahat is Rajbir's illegitimate son). After knowing Rahat and Ranbir are step-brothers, we can expect a big war between them. Also, the war might intensify as both get attracted towards Dinky.
Each and every character on the show is given importance and are portrayed well. Every actor has also performed extremely well. Priyank's intense look, his expressions and chemistry with Harshita is impressive. Siddharth and Khushi have also performed well. Niki and Samir are a big plus on the show.
Although the show resembles many other Bollywood films, the performances of the actors steal the show. There are indeed many glitches and over-the-top scenes, but can be ignored in the name of entertainment. The show is for the youth and will be loved by those who like KJo and Yash Chopra's films.
