Kota Factory Season 2 Review: So, Netflix dropped the second season of Kota Factory earlier today and it was kind of a hit and a miss. The first season of Kota Factory was loved by everyone and obviously, fans wanted the second season.
But, I really don’t think this is what we wanted to be honest. The second season is good at parts but it is equally bad as well. I won’t say that it is bad honestly, but it felt too forced.
The thing is that Netflix tried everything that worked for the show in the first season. And without realizing they overdid it massively. And that is where the show suffered really badly.
Kota Factory Season 2 Review
Kota Factory Season 2: Plot
The second season started right from where the first season ended. Vaibhav has now joined Maheshwari classes and is ready to face these new challenges in this new year.
And on the other side, Vratika has joined Prodigy classes and is ready to enter the second year of her preparation alongside everyone. But it is not going to be easy in any way.
And on the completely opposite side, Jeetu Bhaia has left Prodigy Classes. And he is starting his own dream venture and is ready to give his everything for his new venture. So this time he is also on a trial.
The thing is everything that was presented to us was really good. All of this could have worked into something really good. They could have made us invested in the show with witty and good plot points.
But the thing is that the second season of Kota Factory really felt all Black and White. The first season might have been shot as Black and White, but the characters and story really brought color to the screen.
And the second season was missing all of that. And that hurt the show really badly. How can you mess up the drama when that is the only thing that the show has.
Kota Factory: What Worked For The Show
We know that all of these actors are really good. And once again they proved it here. Every single artist gave their all. No matter what they were given they made it work.
Even all the new cast members acted with everything they had. I think the cast of the show was the most impressive thing about it. And that is really saying something.
Jitendra Kumar once again was really good as Jeetu Bhaia and I think Ahsaas Channa might have been the standout performer. The way she delivered those strong and heavy dialogues was really commendable.
TVF has always produced amazing music for their series. And Kota Factory 2 was no different. There were some signature TVF tracks mixed with some new tracks altogether.
And I can never get tired of listening to the songs that TVF produces. I will add these songs to my playlist as soon as they are available. And I think you should do that too. Because the songs were really sublime.
One thing I really liked about the second season is the way it tackled and addressed real-life situations. TVF has been doing that for a long time now. But Netflix also did try to do the same. And I think that should be appreciated. We will talk about those scenes later in detail.
Kota Factory Season 2: What Did Not Work For The Show?
You will agree with me when I say that characters were really the backbone of Kota Factory. And that was the reason why the show was loved. Characters like Vaibhav, Jeetu Bhaia, Meena, and others became fan-favorite instantly.
And Netflix overdid everything they were loved for. Jeetu Bhaia motivated his students in the first season. In the second season, it is too much that it kind of felt forced to the level that you will skip certain dialogues.
Vaibhav was a whiny and indecisive kid, but he was still a sensible and relatable character. In the second season, he is just whiny. And nothing else. And that is not what you want to do with your main character.
The thing is everything in the second season is good but all of it felt forced somehow. And I don’t know-how is that possible. It was not like how it was supposed to be. Kota Factory is supposed to give a raw take on the life of students. But in the second season, it didn’t felt like that.
The scene with the female mensuration cycle and taboo related to other stuff could have been more impactful and less forced. I appreciate the fact that they did it, but I don’t think this was the way to go.
The first two episodes were dreadful. Too slow and had nothing. I know those were introductory episodes, but I got nothing in those 80 minutes. It was a really hard watch.
It got better as the show progressed, but it was still something that I really disliked about the show.
Kota Factory Season 2: Is It Worth It?
I think that even after all these problems, it is still a one-time watch. If you want to skip it, you can and it won’t affect anything. But if you decide to watch it, you will enjoy it as well.
