When I started watching this anonymous new web series I was sceptic AF. With less known star cast and low budget hostel shooting, there was not much look forward to, except the concept and of course Biswa Kalyan Rath.
And I'll tell you, its better than Most International Web Series right now.
Amazon Prime's "Lakhon Mein Ek" shows a mirror to the society about how under its pressure Lakhs of kids are being forced to study courses and live life they just don't want to.
IIT is not for every student, hell even college is not for every person. Some of the most successful people never finished school, because they realized it wasn't for them.
But, the show isn't just about that.
It highlights how average students are discriminated and students with better grades are given more facilities in the coaching hostels. There's a sectional divide, although both the students pay the same fee, the high grade students in section A have better rooms, washrooms, better teachers and even better food. While Section D students have mostly edible food, they are basically just left to be.
It also shows the dire consequences of such over pressure as students resort to extreme ways to score grades, be it cheating even in the coaching exams or taking drugs to stay more focused to study.
Extreme bullying from the side of Coaching administration is been put to light, where the warden Bala beat up D section students if there was any rule broken, while it was Bala for whom you feel bad for in the beginning, you will be left screaming "Bala ki Maa ki Chu" in the last episode.
And, Most of All its about Friendship. The Bro-code of Aakash, Bakri and Chudail is goals. Aakash would not have survived in the Institute had it not been for his friends. The students are fighting the system, and to rebel you need unity. From their funniest pranks, dangerous adventures, to their love for each other. Aakash, Bakri and Chudail Stayed together, and their secret spot (rooftop) in the Genius Infinity hostel will always be a legend like Central Perk.
