Getting a Tadka of comedy in the horror genre is becoming very popular these days and that's what Gaurav S. Sinha tried to present to the audience. This five-episode series 'Aapkey Kamrey Mein Koi Rehta Hai' is a story of four friends - Nikhil (Sumeet Vyas), Subbu (Naveen Kasturia), Kavi (Amol Parashar), and Sanki (Ashish Verma), who face several issues in getting an apartment to live as in the city, it's a big dilemma to find a house for a bachelor.
While suffering from this issue of finding a home, all of them stays in their Mercedes car and that becomes their living place for a few days. How could it be possible to not give any love angel when there are 4 bachelors? Among them, Kavi notices a beautiful lady in the office, and guess who's that girl? She's Mausam (Swara Bhaskar), with whom Kavi fells in love at first sight.
And the story begins when these 4 friends find all-new 4 BHK flat and that too at very reasonable rent in a metropolitan city like Mumbai. Do you think they are living alone in the house? Absolutely no. And the thrill comes when Sanki organizes the housewarming party on Diwali and invites everyone from the office. Life gets further complicated when Mausam comes for their party, after-which begins the comedy of horrors. What happens to the one-sided love of Kavi, when Mausam actually attracts towards Nikhil. And what that ghost in their house does, you need to watch this quick series.
If talking about the script, it's quite dull and missing many aspects that could save the entertainment part from the series. Like there could have been a good funny start that why and how these 4 bachelors get homeless. It seems to make it short & quick, makers just left the concern about showing interesting. The director, Gaurav S. Sinha, has tried to make it horror-comedy, and you might find some comedy scenes in it but not at all horror. So, if you're planning to watch it then don't expect anything that can scare you.
At some points, you might feel the makers have forcefully put their efforts to show fun into it. But if coming to the performances, Ashish Verma is the one who manages to make us laugh with his kiddish & flirty behavior, and Sumeet Vyas plays the role of a casanova kind of guy, Nikhil, who attracts Mausam in that house party. Yes, the girl with whom his friend, Kavi fells in love at first sight. This dramatic scene could have been played with a perfect drama and comedy but again just to crisp the series, there also the makers failed to do so. Though the performances of all the actors are perfectly fine that can give you the reason to book your weekend for this series.
Indeed, in the last episode, you can enjoy the moment when the truth comes in front of everyone. And if you want to see that messy fun at the end, you'll need to watch the series.
Overall, it's a short but not crispy 5 episode series that can make you laugh at some points but not at all scary. So, if you're not fond of horror much then you can watch it for the sake of time-pass.
