The web series “The Lasting Web Series” has been released. Rasbhari” Starring Swara Bhaskar in lead is now India’s worst-rated Amazon Prime Show. IMDb has Rasbhari receiving many negative reviews. It is rated 2.9 stars out of 10 with over 1,890 reviews.
Amazon Prime users were disappointed because they didn’t expect such a series. The platform that brought you web series such as The Family Man, Inside Edge and Laakhon Mein Ek was not meant to bring you something like Rasbhari. One user wrote that Amazon Prime was now trying to be MX Player/Alt Balaji/Ullu.
Swara Bhaskar was one of the main reasons for India’s series failure. Many hateful comments she made about various events have already earned her a lot of hatred in India. These things had a negative impact on her films and TV shows. Rasbhari was also criticized by people who did not watch the series but instead rated it in anger at Swara.
Many reviews didn’t discuss the technical aspects of the series. The only thing that was discussed in the reviews was the profane parts. The trailer for Rasbhari received a lot of dislikes and negative comments when it was first released. This ultimately determined the fate of the show’s future.
Perhaps it is time for Amazon Prime Video/Netflix to realize that Indians want something better. They want web series such as The Family Man, Sacred Games, Laakhon Mein Ek, etc., not Rasbhari or Mrs. Serial Killer.
Payal Rohatgi in a video called out Swara Bhaskar for her web series Rasbhari. She stated how, on hand, liberal feminists talk about women rights and then goes on doing such characters just for money.
