Seeking to escape from the depressing COVID scenario, I vowed to watch only no-brainers on the OTT platform. I stumbled upon what I thought was the ultimate no-brainer on ZEE 5. It was called "BRahmrakshas., The title itself sounded promising and the first episode really held the potential for a great zero IQ serial. A rich guy is pushed from his balcony by a gold digger whom he married and is grabbed by a gorilla and killed YES GORILLA NOT GIERIILLA. THAT TOO IN AN INDIAN FOREST!!!!!!!! Suspend your disbelief guys and forget Nat-Geo Animal Planet, Discovery, etc. The serial was obviously written by someone who is blissfully ignorant of the fact that such channels exist, someone who would probably score a zero if asked questions about animal habitats in a quiz. This guy turns into a spook called Brahmarakshas. He doesn't like marriages and brides in red finery drive him nuts and he plays spoilsport at weddings by killing the bride and anyone else he can lay his hands on, Only lotus flowers keep him at bay, nope I don't think he is anti or pro-BJP but just a guy who doesn't give a damn for politics. Now a couple of scatterbrained families want a destination wedding for their offspring and zero in on Brahmarakshas habitat. After that, it is all Karan Johar universe., absolutely unrelieved with anach gaana pre-wedding celebrations and dollops of soap opera. except when the spook appears with its hands outstretched like Jesus the Saviour and with low growls like a very angry pooch Then what? Then I gave up after four or five episodes. Karan Johar is okay, So is Dracula. But KJO meets Drac is a wee bit too much. DW suggested that I should watch Tamil daily soaps instead. but they confuse me. Every character has the same kind of beard and you can't tell the hero from his father-in-law. The women characters come as a relief. They have no facial hair, thankfully.
