Every year, lakhs of Indian Students join Coaching Classes across India and grind the midnight oil to clear various Entrance Exams for Colleges that set them for a great career ahead. One such aspirant is Vaibhav Pandey (Mayur More) who moves to Kota from Itarasi, and joins Prodigy Coaching Classes.
Kota Factory , a miniseries, chronicles his life at Kota, his friend circle, his teachers, love interest and his faculty.
Jeetu Bhaiya ( Jitendra Kumar) , a Physics Teacher and a true student mentor, who handholds various such children and sets them for a lifetime journey of success.
Friendships of a lifetime, forged under adverse circumstances
Kota Factory is real life of almost every youth in India, struggling to fulfill the IIT dream.
Aspiration is a Bitch! And this time, it showed it’s head in Black and White, literally.
Parental expectations, self-doubt, sleeplessness, anxiety, lying to protect one’s image, depression, jostling with problems, constipation, lack of sustained attention, faculty issues, lack of subject grasp, land lady issues, lack of self-confidence, Kota Factory touches so many nuanced aspects of IIT Preparatory Classes that it begins to feel as if you are vicariously experiencing Vaibhav’s journey.
The Director truly found a story where no one was looking for one, at least not to make a web series out of.
That they chose to make this entire web series in Black and White, was a first. But it merely adds to the charm.
Some sleek screenplay and story pan out there. Mayur More, Alam Khan, Ranjan Raj,Urvi Singh, Revathi Pillai, each actor is a find, who clearly are fine budding actors.
