The Trip Episode 8: #WhereIsTheRing (Climax of Webseries)

The Trip Episode 8:

Rise and Shine.

A slow gradual but slurry morning, had it been for the foursome who had laid haphazardly on the beach. How do they often end up laid on the beach, one may wanna ask. Remember questions are barely a part of fictionalised series. You don't ask, you watch!! We can still overlook this part of the series with picturesque view of the breathtaking beach in Koh Samui. Shonali was waking the girls up and Anna was smiling to herself,seeing the names Adil and Neil being written on either side of the former’s bum. Perfect spots for the guys in her indecisive heart.

The delirious girls finally started walking. Naz was leading the team, feeling proud of the fact that they had gone one step ahead with a Hangover, concluding a perfect Bachelorette party but Ananya’s heart was filled with apprehension. Her paranoia surely kicked reality in all of them for Ananya had lost her RING!!!Her engagement ring…

The girls looked around them and Sanjana tried to bring them to relax. All of them headed back to their hotel,which was thankfully in the vicinity. All ran to their room which had already seemed as though things had been thrown around. Naz was quite concerned about not having food which almost led to Ananya losing her cool but Shonali and Sanjana asked them to check Ananya’s mobile.

A message from an unidentified Suku surely baffled them even further. Next, the group of girls chose to seek help from Arnav who checked the footage from the hotel. However, this wasn't much help till the girls found out about their night having been spent at one strip club, Lady Dragon.

Counting her stars, Ananya stepped forward with the girls and found themselves in a deep whirlpool as a Thai girl identified them to be wonderful in pole dancing and entertaining them. If this wasn't shocking enough, the next phone call was just adequate to let the world slip from Ananya’s feet. It was her mom talking about some video that had been uploaded by Nazia on fB. Eyes were fixated on Naz and Ananya abruptly ended the call. 

Girls tried to pacify, one by one,that it couldn't be that bad but all hesitantly took one look and knew the everlasting impact it could have on Ananya’s wedding. In an inebriated state, the unexpected words came out from Ananya’s mouth, speaking of her disheartened soul about Arjun, especially their honeymoon plans.

Everything was now out in the OPEN.

Girls still needed to find the ring. They got a hint about Suku and they ended at a temple. They ended up emptying a donation box, scaring a girl who had probably been praying. Misfortune had not left their backs and this time round, it was in the form of local Thai policemen who caught them red-handed and frozen in shock.

The adventure trip had taken an unexpected swerve,blinding Ananya’s judgment entirely, calling it a flop idea. She almost accused Naz directly for bringing them into such a huge mess despite her shortcomings and her wants to lead an unforgettable trip with her best buds for the rest of her life. Now, she had thought of bailing out easily and decided to point fingers,especially on Nazia. Before things escalated, Ananya got a call from her mom.

The ultimate call that foiled the adventurous spirit in all of them. Ananya’s marriage had officially been called off by Arjun and his family members. Grieving in silence and melancholy are the girls who are on their way to the police station.

Fans are excited to see their favourite Adil in the upcoming episode. What I'm looking forward to seeing is how the friendship of Ananya, Sanjana, Shonali and Nazia will be consolidated and strengthened with this storm and with the male counterparts, Neil and Adil. It was indeed refreshing to see a glimpse of Neil calling the girls criminals and Adil pulling Sanjana’s legs, asking if going to the jail wasn't on her Don't Do list. All in all, the guys are gonna make an explosive reentry back into the series, for the girls!!

Bindass TV's The Trip: #PeachKissed & Imsmitten (Episode 1) Giggles. Rushed Decisions. Mastermind Plan in Action

As one looks on the teaser which had been launched a couple of days back, I had clearly felt my heart skipping several beats. 4 girls. 3 countries. Travel plans for a bachelorette party. The only opportunity for a bride-to-be to go freaking wild and liberal with her bunch of besties.
Champagne. Shots. Hot beach-bod guys. Mood Swings. Confusion. Music. Love. New perspectives. Sunshine. Hormones on Overdrive. New connections. Reinventing yourself. Friendship to the test. Unforgettable memories. 15th December, 7 pm. The clock kept ticking and I finally went on to catch the first episode of the webseries. After watching the previous work of Lakshya Raj Anand(Girl In The City), my expectations were on the rise.
We meet Shonali, who's undecided between her umpteen love for her music and being on a dead-end bartending job. Meeting Neil on a late night at the bar after her shift hours was a lucky charm on its own. Saying this was merely an understatement. Shonali just needed a reassurance…

The Trip(Epi 2): #PeachKissed #AndTheAdventureBegins FrictionInTheAir. Escapism. MadnessInTheLongRun. TheGirlsAreLost!!!!

And so the adventure begins…
<Screeching Sounds> Wait!!!!
What happened to Neil and Shonali? What was the big ruckus all about him proposing Shonali??What was her response?
The second episode has got us into the atmosphere very much contrasting to conservative serializable fiction where the prospect of slightly mentioning “Whisper” is taboo!! (Laughs) Lakshya has begun this episode with his crisp take on raw discussions instead of letting out on loose ends, leaving them suspended. There is always a hit he leaves behind for he audience to catch. That was exactly what had happened to Neil’s proposal.
Knowing the clear hot-headed rebel with an uncompromising nature, it was quite easy to guess. Being clear of her non-committal mannerisms, we knew where we were headed in this whole live-in ruckus they’ve created for themselves, at least from Shonali’s perspective. Neil was disappointing. Sure, I was hoping that having lived for her for at least 3 years, he should have figured that …

The Trip Episode 5: #AndThenTheyBecameFour Trip Back To School Days. Friendship to the Test. Shonali's Dil In Mushkil???


And Then They Became Four!!!
For starters, we had an inkling when Adil introduced us to Ananya, Nazia and Shonali as the 'Trimurti', as the old clique of buddies before he met Sanjana. This episode, as @saurabh_bhowal tweeted on this episode:

This episode most definitely brought the feels and you'll know why, in the coming paragraphs.

Welcome to St. Mary's School, where the Trimurti met, had experienced the slices of the initial stages of life. Learning to love something whole-heartedly, enjoying each other's company, be it certain sports such as basketball for Shonali, food for thought between Naz and Ananya and in these years of naivety, they grew up to be the best of buds, keeping their friendship still intact over these years. Today a new chapter unfolded in their friendship, especially one between Naz and Ananya when the latter had clearly crossed her limits of belittling her, making a mockery out of her built. Now did we see that coming for both of…
