'The Gone Game' Review: Voot’s series a perfect blend of suspense and thriller

A Potpourri of Vestiges Review

By Shubhangi Jain

Who knew 2020 will be a year of the pandemic? The novel coronavirus not only ruined our travel and outing plans but has also distanced us from our loved ones. When most of us were banging thalis, making Dalgona coffee and shouting ‘Go Corona Go’ at top of our voices during March, storytellers continued making different stories for us. While the entire nation was facing lockdown, Nikhil Bhat and team came up with the idea of making a perfect quarantine content based series “The Gone Game.”

The series is based during the times of the pandemic and beautifully portrays the harsh reality which people faced with the spread of coronavirus. While most of the series these days are shot outside India, this series completely keeps in mind the current situation and is completely shot indoors. One very important reason of watching this series is that the audience is completely able to relate with the plot as they have been going through the same situation.

The Hindi web series begins in the period of March when the world was discovering approaches to battle the novel coronavirus and we are still doing tha. We come across Sahil Gujral (Arjun Mathur) who just recently returned from Bangkok. He has quarantined himself in his room as we see some mild symptoms of COVID-19 in him. His better half Suhani Gujral (Shriya Pilgaonkar), who is an internet based life influencer, is compelled to rest in the visitor room. The Gujral family is watching the Janta Curfew, declared by PM Narendra Modi, together from their separate telephone screens. To the great shock of the Gujarals, Sahil before long capitulates to the infection. Notwithstanding, an unintended call makes Amara and the remainder of the family wonder if Sahil is still alive.

While the vast majority of the arrangement is shot inside, it appeared that all the actors have shot it themselves in their individual houses with the assistance of their family members.Despite the fact that the cast spends a significant piece of their scenes collaborating through video calls, they have given quality exhibitions. Shweta Tripathi Sharma gets the greatest screen time and she intrigues as the inquisitive and shrewd Amara. Arjun Mathur is persuading as a COVID-19 patient and shows up quiet while depicting various feelings.

'The Gone Game' is a scaled down arrangement of four episodes, each one of which is roughly 28 minutes in length. The story remains legitimate in its aim of utilizing COVID-19 emergency as one of the primary plot drivers. The show is fresh with one occasion following another while keeping the procedures reasonable. The principle wind toward the end ends up being flighty, which is an absolute necessity in puzzle spine chillers. Since it was shot during when the lockdown was severe the greater part of the scenes are naturally through video calls. Presently, it looks invigorating for some time however that experience also loses its sheen sooner or later.

The screenplay is normal, anyway the background and how the story streams without letting the watchers surmise the completion works for it. The performances by all the actors are solid. With the constrained help and gear, every one of them prevail with regards to depicting their characters as they were intended to be. While the advances from one scene to the next are not adjusted, which is reasonable, the entertainers figure out how to cause the crowd to have confidence in their story. 

What didn’t work is the response of the family after they become more acquainted with a gigantic disclosure. It scarcely has any impact on them when it ought to have absolute stunned them. But, overall, ‘The Gone Game’ is worth your time.

Rating: 8/10
