Binge or Cringe: Kunaal Roy Kapur’s Side Hero Is A Master Class In Self Deprecating Humour

SpotboyE’s Just Binge reviews is back with another episode. This time we tell you whether it’s worth watching Eros Now’s original web series, Side Hero

Side Hero, that streams on Eros Now, is a quirky dra-medy (drama comedy) loosely based on the real life of the youngest Kapur brother, Kunal Roy Kapoor! The show is directed by Rohan Sippy, best known for his films Kuch Naa Kaho, Bluffmaster! and Dum Maaro Dum.

Side Hero stars Kunaal as a fictionalised version of himself, trying to become a lead hero and prove that acting is not just a ‘hobby’. Kunaal is goofy, fidgety, loony and endearing, all at once. His comic timing in the show is just perfect.

The show also stars Gopal Dutt, whose performance stands out.  There are guest appearances by Konkona Sen, Sumeet Vyas and Shakti Kapoor.  Watch out for Kunaal and Shakti’s wahsroom conversation! Just hilarious!

The show does a near perfect job of blending reality and fiction and introduces us to some really likeable characters. Side Hero is a happy and feel good series, that will entertain you throughout.
