The Fame Game (2022)

The waters of fame run deep, to win the game you have to play long.

What starts as a case of a missing superstar, quickly becomes an unravelling of her whole family and many of those around her.

It has multiple layers and messages, all communicated with ease, but in their own time. The entrapments of fame are evident throughout, with little done to hide or mask them.

Madhuri has given a brilliant and understated performance and is ably supported by a stellar cast, all of whom do a splendid job in portraying their respective arcs. No character is two dimensional and they all have more going on than meets the eye.

The verdict? A riveting display of the realities of the business, the families of those involved and how their struggles and backstories are never known or thought of.

Loosely based around many theories of stars in Bollywood and perhaps on their real lives too, it is a must watch with all doors open for a second season! Bravo to the creator Sri Rao and directors Bejoy Nambiar and Karishma Kohli.
