Ganga gets emotional.
The show has few good bits to get insight on how the world can look if we assume the long leap of 10 years ahead. The concept is fresh and simple. It does not look as any futuristic movie remake. It has endearing characters, where the actors are fairly justifying. The show looks appealing visually. It has emotional content which makes it watchable by the family. It has few surprise elements by the high tech things one can believe to get in the next generation. The show presents some possibilities of the future trends to make oneself notice what can be expected ahead. It is watchable by both generations, for having emotional factors and many technology gadgets possibilities.
One can enjoy this Sony’s new show in leisure. It has comic bits while portraying the daily life in 2025. It is a nice attempt and would be liked more if same interest level is kept throughout.
