Posham Pa is a dark Crime Series about everything that can be wrong with a person with loose moral fabric. Bordering on mental illness, Prajakta Deshpande ( Mahie Gill) , leads her two daughters (Shikha Deshpande) Ragini Khanna and Regha Sathe (Sayani Gupta) into a life of unapologetic gruesome crimes. Nikhat Ismail (Shivani Raghuvanshi) and Gundeep Sagar (Imaad Shah) play the role of Documentarians who investigate if there is possibility of pardon for the two sisters for their serial murder crimes. The series sets out to explore that ill intentions can be nurtured , thus turning even an innocent child into a monster.
Prajakda Deshpande leads a poverty struck life teaching her young kids to steal, snatch, pimping for beggary, prostitute, kidnapping young children and killing them, and generally leading a life of lowest moral fabric, relentless of compunction or regrets for ghastly criminal activity. Before she realizes, her younger daughter Regha takes to crime like a fish to water, even manipulating and framing her own sister for her crimes, killing young children, including horrific murder of her own 6 year old half-brother.
Perhaps Criminals are not born. The circumstances and environment that a person grows up in, make the man. The responsibility of parents in the right nurturing and inculcating of moral fabric becomes very important. But what happens when the parents themselves are wrongfully inclined, bordering on mental illness which leads to crime, bereft of any human emotion. To think of another’s child in a criminal way is another thing, but to serially commit ghastly murders is another.
Posham Pa showcases a dark and disturbing side of Human Behavior, wherein Crime becomes a way of life and criminal feels completely justified in committing the crime repeatedly, almost mechanically to the tune of this mind.
The three lead characters played by Mahie Gill, Ragini Khanna and Sayani Gupta are beyond critique for good acting. They bring out character shades which are dark and unapologetically nuanced. It will not be wrong to state that this Web Film is among the most under rated so far, in terms of the genre that it addresses.
With low focus on mental issues or their resolution in India, it is not unbelievable that such monsters exist within our society, lurking in streets or living in elite housings. This 1 hr 16 min Web Film brings the spotlight on behavior of such monsters and the pervert thinking they possess.
