Masaba Masaba Season 2 Review: The Netflix Series Belongs To Masaba And Neena Gupta 


Netflix show Masaba Masaba season 2 review: here’s why you should give this show a watch  

No one’s life is perfect; even under the veil of glitz and glamour, women go through the same problems and no matter how hard it gets, we women always find a way to rise above it all – the semi-fictional series gives a glimpse of the lives of actress Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba as they navigate life through their personal and professional ups and downs. 

After the success of the Dharma-lite story of season one, creator Ashvini Yardi has promised to deliver a series with more glamour, drama, and chaos. Season one of Masaba Masaba told the story of renowned fashion designer Masaba Gupta’s life – her relationship with her mother, actress Neena Gupta, and how Masaba handled her divorce as well as a sneak peek of the designer’s work life. The first season brought in a gush of fresh wind as the Indian audience had never experienced a semi-fictional series before. Hence, the expectations surrounding the second season were undoubtedly high. 

The second season depicts the highs and lows of Masaba’s life. Her life is marked by all kinds of problems that every millennial has these days. Starting from her love life, fear of being left alone, and complex familial relationships to her constant yearning of becoming relevant in terms of her work. Hence, this season is extremely relevant and relatable to Gen Z and millennial audiences. It can be said that, Masaba’s story in this season is an archetype of women manoeuvring through the sometimes unfair world to become the king of their own life. 

Additionally, the show also throws light on Masaba’s love life. The writers have quite masterly aced the age-old tradition of sketching two completely different male leads – Dhariya Rana, the investor of House of Masaba, a charming yet introverted man who truly cares for her and to his sharp contrast there is Fateh – a rich, attractive F***boy because let’s just call him what he really is. One thing is notable here, generally, even if the female character is strong and independent, they often fail to resist the charms of characters like Fateh. However, the writers of Masaba Masaba did a splendid job when they portrayed Masaba’s character to be a “grown ass woman” who doesn’t get swayed by the tricks of guys like Fateh. 

The all-women writer’s team, which includes Punya Arora, Nandini Gupta, Anupama Ramachandran and Sonam – did a fantastic job in touching upon delicate themes like body image issues, mental health, and commitment issues, and most importantly self-love. 

Although the story is a glamorous approach to the life of Masaba and Neena Gupta and the cameos by Kartik Aaryan, Milind Soman, and late Bappi Lahiri gave the series an additional flavour, Masaba Masaba belongs to the triumph of Masaba and Neena Gupta against all odds. Moreover, it is needless to say, this series has certainly given Bollywood with a new actor – Masaba Gupta.
