Bollywood Crazies Opinion: This is not just a typical love story and many won’t able to relate to it. Still, this webseries is perfect in many terms and you would like the performances of both Aastha and Peeplika. This series talks about many issues rather than just homosexuality. It is one of the best webseries that deals with the problems of married life, loneliness and love. This webseries is slow and that’s the only drawback but if you put your heart to it you will like it.
The budget of The Married Woman hasn’t been revealed yet but it would reportedly be over 10 to 12 crores minimum.
Altogether, The Married Woman is a well made webseries and a must watch for its unique story. This webseries has been ended on a cliff hanger and that means there is definitely a second season to it.
Last word: Watch it for the performances of Aastha and Peeplika, this two woman stole the series. Also watch it for its brilliant story and direction.
