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?

(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???

#TheTrip:

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…
