Chacha Vidhayak Hain Hamare is an Amazon Prime show centred around a typical Indori guy, Ronny Pathak (played by Zakir Khan) who lives his life based on the unabashed lie that he is the nephew of the local MLA, the only proof of which is their common surname.
Ronny, the directionless, compulsive liar and a smooth talker is portrayed by Zakir Khan--A stand-up comedian who rose to fame with his rooted desi-ness and a witty storytelling skills that appealed to the mass.
With each episode, we see Pathak’s bizarre solutions to his self-induced troubles, all of which arise because of the unceasing lies about his political connections.
Following all of his bizarre plans blindly are Ronny’s closest friends Anwar (Vyom Sharma) and Kranti (Kumar Varun) who are always ready to jump out of the frying pan into the fire for their ‘Ronny Bhaiya.’
Ronny’s family includes a typical weepy mother (Alka Amin), a stern father (Zakir Hussain) who is tired of his son’s shenanigans and a nosy sister Shanoo (Pritha Bakshi) who is hell-bent on unravelling his mischiefs. Predictable enough, we are introduced to his one-sided love Avantika (Venus Singh) who has comfortably friend-zoned him. Ronny is her go-to-person, be it for her parent's train tickets or to fix the legal arrangements to marry her lover.
All the support characters merely accentuate Ronny’s world and do no greater good for the show as a whole. Despite their appreciable acting, there is no character development.
Zakir’s excruciatingly exaggeration of his Sakth Launda swag and over the top usage of the Indori lingo further takes a jab on his amateur acting skills instead of generating any laughs.
Chacha Vidhayak Hai Hamare struggles to evoke any kind of emotions despite the relativity of the characters. It falters at various levels right from the poor writing to the underdeveloped characters. Even the finale wherein we are finally introduced to the Vidhayak (Abhimanyu Singh) takes an extremely unbelievable turn even for fictional show.
The show truly disappoints in building a connection with the audience and is presumably happy to capitalise on a pre-existing fan base rather than breaking through in the web series space and gaining a wider audience.
Even with a few funny scenes scattered throughout the series, this is a one time watch for Zakir fans and people who appreciate and connect with the Indori lifestyle. The show's CineBee of 72 also says the same thing as a rating between 65-75 usually means that the show is average at most and a one-time watch.
