The story of Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo revolves around a very strong and powerful woman affectionately named Rani Ba played by Dimple Kapadia, her two daughters-in-law played by Isha Talwar and Angira Dhar and her daughter played by Radhika Madan. involved in the illegal production and trafficking of a drug called Flamingo, without the knowledge of Rani Ba’s two sons who have just returned from the United States. A death in a night bar in Mumbai caused by the consumption of Flamingo leads to the launch of an investigation to find out who is responsible for the production and distribution of Flamingo in the country. With the investigative services and her enemies behind her, it is up to Rani Ba, her daughters-in-law and her daughter to save themselves from a very difficult situation.

What works:

The premise of the show is quite intriguing and each character is mysterious in their own way. There is a lot of scope to explore different equations and dynamics.

The show is quirky and there are scenes that will make you chuckle. The comedy is situational.

The action sequences, especially in the first episode, are effective. They are hardcore and look pretty fierce when performed by the ladies.

Sachin-Jigar’s background music earns brown marks.

What not:

The screenplay is incoherent. There are pacing issues if we simply watch the first two episodes. However, the ending of the second episode indicates that the bar will be raised in the episodes that follow.

There are scenes that feel forced or out of place. Some scenes feel unnecessarily long and seem to lead nowhere.

The haphazard use of swearing does get on your nerves after a point. Using curses isn’t a problem, but it’s how ineffectively they are used where the problem lies.


Dimple Kapadia, Radhika Madan, Isha Talwar and Angira Dhar are all powerhouses of acting and enjoy a solid screen presence.

Deepak Dobriyal looks intimidating, however little he is seen in the first two episodes. He could once again become the choice of the actors.

Varun Mitra and Ashish Verma as Rani Ma’s two sons have nothing interesting to offer so far. They are let down by writing.

Jimit Trivedi as an investigating officer can make his moments shine, eventually in the show.


Judging from the first two episodes of Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo, something interesting is definitely brewing, but the episodes in question leave a lot to be desired. The premise and setting are the driving force and that keeps you hooked on the show just a little bit longer.

You can watch Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo, on the respective digital platform.
