With the frenzy of web series taking the entertainment industry by storm sometime since the last decade, it has been imperative that the Indian media industry has witnessed somewhat of a revolution. As the typical Indian audience was forever glued to the television with those repeated versions of the same old family drama, the new gen was forever in pursuit of something fresh and unique.
Cashing in on this particular appeal, The Viral Fever pitched a brand new show by the name Pitchers. With a brilliant writing and superb acting, plus the unexplored yet highly commonplace content, TVF Pitchers captured the public attention and realm soon after it was launched.
Chronicling the life and aspirations of four friends Naveen, Jitu, Yogi and Mandal who quit their job to develop their own start up company, the show instantly touched upon the dreams and desires of the younger lot of Indians, for whom entrepreneurship was a newly emerged avocation.
No wonder that the show was an instant hit and garnered enough popularity. Premiering online on TVF’s content portal TVFPlay, the show has the unique distinction of finding its way into the IMDb listings. With a rating of 9.4 out of a probable 10, TVF Pitchers is currently ranked 44th on the website’s Top Rated TV.
Premiering on 3rd June, 2015 and rounding off after 5 episodes on the 30th of the same month, TVF Pitchers was also streamed on YouTube from August 10, 2015.
Four friends who enter the business world by launching their own start up company formed the premise of this series, which also has a highly anticipated second season in the line up.
Following the story of Naveen and his two friends Yogendra and Jitender on their build up to their entrepreneurial journey, the show captures the essence of the spirit and motive behind a majority of the young people venturing out of the stability of a routine job to explore rougher terrains.
As a drunk Naveen resigns from his job as he is unable to obtain a project, he realises that a 9 to 5 job is not his calling when he offered a position in a branch office located in Beijing. Simultaneously, his alternate plans of an own business making it to the final of the NASSCOM start-up conclave sets him and his friends on an off beat trail.
TVF Pitchers further explores the complexities and challenges encountered by the friends as they finally set on their journey of a pulsating choice and a life not bogged down by bossy orders.
However, it’s not just the premise of the show that seems highly relatable for young minds. TVF Pitchers is also particularly enjoyable and at the same time delivers emotions perfectly as it comes up with some really epic dialogues. Sometimes funny, sometimes sarcastic while still dripping with sentiments at other times, the dialogues are among the wittiest and also the most poignant.
BEST DIALOGUES OF TVF PITCHERS
- Disillusioned youngsters taking recourse to the ultimate ‘detour’ of achievement and high ended dreams find significant depiction in this dialogue from the show.
- Try and try till you succeed. But at least do try.
- Haha. All those funny memes on the net can relate to this! Er, somehow..
- This is sarcasm at its best. But equally evocative. And deeply unsettling.
- Never mind if you can’t spell it right. If you can feel and do it better, it’s all you need.
- This one is pure love. And emotion. Evocative. And poignant. And something that could not have been truer. That moment when the coin is up in the air and you hear your mind whispering things to you, it is what your heart is set on. That is the ultimate realisation and it liberates you to no end. The moment of SELF DISCOVERY.
- Self confidence, guys and gals. Totally worth the feels!
- Disagreeing is not dishonoring. Get this right, people.
TVF PITCHERS SEASON 2
With Pitchers setting the bar really high in its first season itself, there have definitely been expectations and anticipations about its upcoming seasons. However, the second offering of Pitchers seems to be having no definite time frame.
In fact, reports of a new season emerged soon after the original went off air. But even after almost 3 years of agonising wait, nothing has been confirmed as of now.
Initially, TVF Pitchers was sought to be brought back within a year of its launch itself. But with 2016 offering no more of the four friends’ journey of life, there were wide expectations among fans that maybe 2017 would definitely hold something for them in the form of a brand new season of the show.
But its 2018 now and there is still not any definite news of a probable second season. It only appears that TVF Pitchers Season 2 have indefinitely be stalled. But we hope that the series will be back very soon with a bang on the TVF portal!
