Pet Puraan Review: Sai Tamhankar and Lalit Prabhakar’s Series is Adorable

Pet Puraan is a family-drama TV series written and directed by Dnyanesh Zoting and stars Sai Tamhankar and Lalit Prabhakar, alongside other cast members. The series has 6 episodes, each with a runtime of around 30 minutes.

SonyLIV describes the series as:

Atul and Aditi are happily married, but their family is incomplete without a child. Will they manage to find their happily ever after?

– Pet Puraan review does not contain spoilers –

If you’re anywhere close to the “marriageable age” you are sure to have come across every relative, no matter how distant they are, sticking their nose all over your business. Now, if you’re married, that discussion quickly turns into a discussion about your reproductive habits and whether you’re having sex regularly to pop out babies (subtler and with more winks, but you know what I mean). For new-age couples, this is a sticky situation – do you want to marry? Or do you want to simply stay together? Kids or no kids?

These questions, and then some more, are the reality of couples, past and present. Do Aditi and Atul get to live their lives on their own terms, though? Or do they give in to their parents’ demands? Pet Puraan takes a light-hearted approach towards the whole “having children” gig but more than kids, the series is about how even pets can become your children. The series is a sweet and short watch about how your furry friends become a part of your lives before you even know it.

The series touches on different topics as the story unfolds – the choice of young couples on whether they want children or not, society’s expectations of them, how people shamelessly ask questions they should not be asking, the perils of the animal breeding industry and buying them, the positives of animal adoption and the fact that even animals can be traumatised from their surroundings along with the love that humans share with the animals around them.

The gradual arc that Atul and Aditi share in regards to what they want from their lives is heartening to watch. Their journey of not agreeing on what pet to have to adjusting their expectations and working on their shortcomings to create a family that works for them will be inspirational to watch for many. Then we have the adorable pets who light up the screen whenever they are in a scene. The little furry creatures are what make this series a loveable watch – you can’t go wrong with kittens and puppies.

Pet Puraan

That being said, I think the last episode is a bit over the top. The conflict starts for no reason and seems a bit forced. Then, it gets resolved a bit too easily and the rose detail feels a bit out of the place. I think the series would’ve benefited from keeping the show simple instead of trying to create a convoluted conflict that gets resolved way too quick to make an impact. You want to feel afraid for Vyanku’s future with the family during such conflict but trying to fit it into 30 minutes with a heartwarming resolution results in neither being done well.

Lalit Prabhakar and Sai Tamhankar, our protagonists, are delightful as the couple who are trying to figure out their lives and trying to bypass the expectations of society and its standards. Although society dictates to them what their married life should entail, the couple finds their own definition of family and what it means to feel whole and complete. Both are great in their respective roles and absolutely relatable as the couple who take on more responsibility than they bargained for. Of course, it all makes sense after a while and they find their rhythm but the path to salvation is both thorny and delightful.

Summing up: Pet Puraan

Pet Puraan

At the end of the day, Pet Puraan is an easy, heartwarming and entertaining drama with lots of screentime for the different animals that it features. It’s a showcase of people’s apathy and hypocrisy towards our furry friends and how a little bit of understanding goes a long way. Although it tries to fit in too many social messages within its very small runtime, it’s a delightful watch. Plus, I might just be a bit biased, considering those animals are just too cute!

Pet Puraan is streaming on SonyLIV.
