PariWar is a comedy series created for Disney+ Hotstar by Arre Studios, the show as the name suggests is based on a hilarious family dispute positioned in Allahabad or the modern-day city of Prayagraj.

The movie revolves around Kashi Narayan (Gajraj Rao), a loving father, who hankers to live with his undependable and stubborn children, Mahipal as (Ranvir Shorey), Shishupal (Yashpal Sharma) and Guddan (Nidhi Singh).

As per the chaotic comedy-drama Badke aka Shishupal and Chotke aka Mahipal hate each other for multiple reasons, their sister Guddan falls in love with (Vijay Raaz) Gangaram's son (Abhishek Banerjee) who is a nurse by profession. Not to mention the crazy mix of wives of Mahipal and Shishupal, as they were in love with their now brother-in-laws.

The melodrama is narrated by Babloo (Kumar Varu) the domestic helper of Kashi Narayan and his point of view, according to which he deserves a part in the landed property along with the three children. Each of the three gets inheritance of Kashi Narayan, except for 40 acres of land that he gives away to Gangaram (Vijay Raaz) to build an old age home unaware of his true motives and what follows is a situational comedy.

Director Sagar Ballary's film a nice light-hearted laughter dose with an old but effective screenplay that has its comical moments. Gajraj Rao's acting brings life to the character of Kashi Narayan, father of chotke and badke. The audience is also pleased by the convincing portrayal by Ranvir Shorey and Yashpal Sharma. Abhishek Banerjee who was last seen in Pataal Lok has donned the character of Munna completely.

Nidhi Singh and Vijay Raaz have also depicted their epitome with great theatrical skill. Apart from the good cast the show is also reasonably well directed by Bheja Fry (2007) maker Sagar Ballary. The only drawback or the loop in the screenplay was the acceleration and writing which could have been swifter and on the ball.

The series is of total 6 episodes and all are approximately 25-30 minutes long and keep us hooked with a twist or a cliff hanger on the end of each episode. Though the show is set in the stage of a household, it can not be watched with family and kids, other than that the show is a great option in comedy-drama with its own unconventional and conceptual uniqueness.
