Hostel Daze has survived as one of the few web series in the Indian web content space to maintain its quality past its first season. Of course, season 3 was supposed to be the real test, as the main character change (no Adarsh Gourav this year) made things more difficult. And the fact that there are countless similar shows across platforms doesn’t make it any easier either.But Hostel Daze’s season 3 is a hit. Arguably one of the best Hindi web series, it balances captivating humor with clever pop culture references, witty one-liners, and emotional depth rarely seen in campus dramas. increase.
In Season 3 of the show, our gang enters his third year in engineering and the hostel dynamics are different. For one, there’s a new Ankit starring Utsav Sarkar, replacing Adarsh, who played the role in the first two seasons. The show captivated me in such a great way it introduced Utsav as Ankit in the first scene – a fun meta scene that deserves applause. The show is full of almost fourth-wall-breaking moments of praiseworthy meta, most of which probably only register for the second watch. The star of the show is the writing. No jokes. One-liners are smarter than anything else in the Indian webspace right now, and pop culture references are delicious. Everything from Shark Tank to Sidhu Moosewala is very cleverly placed within the script. But it’s not all silly laughter at first. The first episode of the season is the weakest, as it sets up the rest of the scene.Therefore, it’s slower and sillier than the others.But it also quickly becomes heartwarming. Hostel Days Season 3 is more about growing than fitting in. The hostel is now their domain, not a foreign place… But the kids find the harsh realities of adult life just around the corner. They want to make the most of this moment and that’s what makes this show so relatable.Whether you’ve stayed in a hostel or not, it takes you back to your school days. Season 3 premiered on Prime Video in November
