Tandoori Idly Web Series Review: Cultural Differences of North-South India tackled hilariously in MX Player’s Tamil Web Series Tandoori Idly

Tandoori is a north Indian dish while the Idly is south Indian. It cryptically denotes north-south mixture. It is a simple script beautifully portrayed. The initial tussle between Selvam and Simran is effectively crafted by the director. An apology simply changes the track. Director has carefully chiseled the scenes to portray the second apology. It again improves their bonding.

There are some points to ponder like “Can’t a boy and girl just be very good friends?” from Selvam. Ajai Prasath impresses as Selvam.  Avantika Misra has done justification to the role of Simran. Vinodkumar, Vikkals Vikram, Whatsapp Mani, and Suhasini Sanjeev try to make us laugh with partial success.

Simran’s aversion to saree comes to end when everyone in the office comes to know the end of her tenure. Tandoori Idly episodes are good slaps for those who consider women as “objects”. It also portrays the boy-girl friendship in a beautiful manner. Tandoori Idly MX player is a must-watch for web series fans.
