Yeh Meri Family Season 3 review: Sweet, evocative, and joyfully nostalgic.

Yeh Meri Family Season3 takes us back to the 90s and the myriad memories we grew up with. Rightfully captioned as the Spring of 90s, it infuses charm with the striking paraphernalia that you would identify the 90s with. The tape recorder, the audio cassettes, the fiat car, the VCP rental, Carrom and so many of such things. Encapsulating various topics, ranging from the first crush and the first flush of youth to neighbourhood Holi and birthday celebrations, it touches your heart with the right set of emotions.

The third season delves deeper into the lives of Awasthi Family as they navigate through the ups and downs of life. Led by the talented cast including Hetal Gada (Ritika), Angad Raaj (Rishi), Rajesh Kumar (Sanjay Awasthi), and Juhi Parmar (Neerja Awasthi), the five-episode series promises to be a delightful blend of nostalgia, humor, and heartfelt moments. Exploring the complexities of family dynamics and coming-of-age experiences, the news season invites viewers to laugh, cry, and reminisce along with the Awasthi family once again.

Its spring time and the Awasthi family is looking forward to Holi until there comes a shocker that Ritika has her exams on the very next day. Neerja passes a memorandum in the family that no one would play Holi this time. How does the rest of the family copes with it? Do they really abide by her rule. When there is a new girl in the neighbourhood, Subhi, who happens to be a good friend of Ritika and comes for a sleep over, Rishi falls for her charms. This is the young boy’s first experience with infatuation whose words are like prophecies for the generation to come. 

Directed by Rahib Siddiqui, the episodes coast along nicely with a pleasant breeze where even the sensitive topics are dealt with a light-hearted vibe. Season 3 is curated by a team of four writers – Nikhil Sachan, Vipul Mayank, Seema Sawhney Sharma, and Nikhil Sachan who touch on topics like Bullying in the school and how parents enforce their aspirations on the children’s career but also stretch it more than required. These were predominant features that the 90s kids grappled with. The scripting team articulate the scenarios with emotional depth and dimension.  



Yeh Meri Family Season 3 - final words

As far as the performances go, Angad Raaj steals the limelight. The Kiddo is cheerful, smart, and confident in front of the camera. Hetal is in good form. Veena Mehta who plays the loving and religious Daadi in the family delivers a consistently winsome performance. The parents played by Juhi and Rajesh also exhibit love, compassion and discipline and their co-existence which translates to the balance of life! Sanjay’s character resonates with me on a profound level as he reflects the values we hold dear. Its good to see the character striking a balance in his relationship with his mother and his wife and kids. Portraying such a multifaceted character is both a rewarding and challenging and it is equally rewarding to binge watch the season over a sunny weekend.

I go with 3.5 stars out of 5 for Yeh Meri Family season 3. Cherished each of its moments. The chapters are sheer slices of our lives and so relatable.

Produced by TVF, it is streaming on Amazon miniTV from 4th April 2024.
