The popular expression ‘art imitates life’ rings true with Amazon miniTV’s multi starrer anthology ‘Kaali Peeli Tales’ that premiered on August 20.
While ‘Kaali Peeli Tales’ talks about six entertaining short stories capturing the essence of love, relationships and complexities of life in the city of Mumbai, it also beautifully touches upon sensitive issues such as marriage, co-parenting, infidelity, forgiveness and divorce that bears a striking resemblance to the real-life stories of several notable names from Bollywood including Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan, who have been in news with regards to their divorce and co-parenting kids. Now, this certainly raises the question whether ‘art imitates life’ or ‘life imitates art’ or it’s both.
For those who have watched the intriguing trailer of the show, were eagerly awaiting the release of the six-part anthology that boasts an all-star cast including Vinay Pathak, Gauahar Khan, Sayani Gupta, Maanvi Gaagroo, Soni Razdan, Hussain Dalal, Sharib Hashmi, Tanmay Dhanania, Sadiya Siddiqui, Priyankshi Painyuli and Adeeb Rais among other known names.
Alike the trailer, the web show has been hugely appreciated by the viewers across the globe along with the fraternity and critics alike. Ever since the show has been launched, it has been making waves all over.
Centered around the themes of romance, marriage, infidelity, homosexuality, forgiveness and divorce, each story in ‘Kaali Peeli Tales’ offers a unique perspective on modern-day relationships taking into account the uncertainties of today’s cosmopolitan and digital era. The symbol of Mumbai, the iconic Kaali Peeli taxi, presents a common thread across all stories of the anthology. The stories are titled as Single Jhumka, Love in Tadoba, Marriage 2.0, Fish Fry aur Coffee, Harra Bharra, and Loose Ends.
The six-part anthology is streaming on Amazon’s MiniTV.
