5 Reasons why We should Binge Watch Mentalhood on ZEE5


While I am not much into Television and exactly not get myself updated about the contents it has, recently I was reintroduced to it in a new way, when one of my friends recommended me to watch the new series on ZEE5 Originals called Mentalhood. The name by itself garnered so much interest and curiosity in me that I wasted no time in checking out the trailer first. And it was phenomenal to such an extent that I started binge watching the show with a lot of zeal. And thank God I took this decision as ZEE5 Originals Show Mentalhood ended up to be my favourite show.

So, today I will tell you the 5 reasons why you should Binge Watch Mentalhood.


1. It is so Relatable: Mentalhood represents all the mothers out there. Irrespective of where they belong to, how many kids they have, every mother has to go through certain phases in life that has been shown so accurately in the show. So I am sure each and every mother would find it absolutely relatable. 

2. The Performances: Mentalhood has some amazing star cast. My eyes could not move from any screen where Karisma Kapoor was there. She is so natural as the confused and pressurized mom Meira, that it does not ever look like she is portraying any other character but herself. Every time she was not on screen I wanted to see more of her. The other cast of Dino Morea, Sanjay Suri, Tilottama Shome, Sandhya Mridul and Shruti Seth were also casted perfectly and their performances truly did justice to the characters they were portraying.
