Is “Selection Day” on Netflix binge-worthy?

From the trailer, it doesn’t look anything extraordinary. See for yourself:

No wonder Indian game on Netflix is going strong, with the series like Sacred Games, Lust Stories, and others. Selection Day, however, is not as good as the above-mentioned series, but still, it can be watched safely.

The series is an adaptation of a trusted Indian writer, Aravind Adiga’s best-seller novel of the same name. Its story deals with two boys who are carrying on their shoulders the burden of their father’s dreams. Does this ring a bell? If not, let me break it for you. The series will remind you of Dangal, which has the same story line.

It also has a fantastical touch, as one of the two main characters is shown talking to a godly figure, who dresses like a hippie, every now and then. This addition seems baseless and unnecessary, but at least it is tolerable.

Over all, the series is not bad, and won’t disappoint you. Many of those who have watched the movie, are even demanding a second series, even though the whole story has been neatly wrapped up in 6 episodes.
