Af­ter Sarab­hai vs Sarab­hai Take 2 open­ing to a large view­er­ship and fall­ing straight on its face ow­ing to a weak sto­ry­line and in­ad­e­quate treat­ment, Hot­star has dared to lay its bets on re­viv­ing an­other clas­sic of In­dian tele­vi­sion – Khichdi. Un­for­tu­nately, this one’s also met with the same re­sult. Ex­cept for the lov­able char­ac­ters, who keep their sig­na­ture tac­tics in­tact, noth­ing in this Khichdi will keep you stream­ing. It goes with­out say­ing that the first sea­son of the show, which was aired on TV in 2005, was much more like­able than the new sea­son on­line. It mainly goes hay­wire with its re­vamped ver­sion as it doesn’t fit the view­er­ship bracket.
