Today we will share a MX Player Original Web Series Aashram Review (Season 1).
A self-proclaimed Godman “Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala” (Bobby Deol) who supports mainly lower class people at their bad times, manages to gain their trust to build an empire like Aashram. People like Pammi (Aaditi Pohankar) found him helpful and impressed by his influence, started considering him as a messiah. But a sudden resurfacing of a skeleton just before the election changed everything. During the investigation, many brutal truths unveiled, and the Aashram was found to be the center point of all crimes.
Watch out the trailer now!

First of all, big applause to the director Prakash Jha for making this web series “Aashram” super-detailed and engaging. Every character is well established, even the timeline sequence is on par. In a word, it is a beautifully crafted web series.
Bobby Deol again proves himself fantastic after the Netflix Orginal Series Class of ’83, he seems to be the perfect fit for fake Babaji “Kashipur Waale Baba Nirala”. Babaji’s calmness, less-talking attitude, criminal mind are well portrayed too. I must say Booby Deol is on fire now. Aaditi Pohankar as Pammi also showcased commendable acting skills. For the first time, I saw her acting in a Netflix Original Series “She”; since then Aaditi evolved a lot, now she looks more mature. I personally felt everyone did a very neat and clear job to make this web series “Aashram” a success.
Out of all goods, I must mention, at times I felt the series is quite lengthy. 9 episodes with an average playtime of 40 minutes each, is a really long time, especially for a thriller series. Maybe that is why the director decided to divide the whole series into multiple seasons, the first season to create the plot, and probably next season, we will see How Pammi exposes the racket and bring the culprits into justice.
Overall, in our Aashram Web Series review, we would like to rate this series 4 stars out of 5. If you love crime drama then this series is perfect for you. For the rest, I strongly recommend watching it.
While “Aashram” showcased the dark side of Godman’s Influence and their motive, it has a conflicting side also. But this kind of story is becoming common these days, hence the Aashram web series can create an impact in all of the fake Babaji’s world.
P.S. Aashram Web Series has some really bold scenes, so be aware of that.
