Summary

At a small six episodes long, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag could easily become a comedy favorite for audiences as it speaks a resonating language that has an emotional tug.

This review of Netflix’s Bhaag Beanie Bhaag season 1 contains no spoilers. The comedy series was released on the streaming service on December 4, 2020.


Have you ever heard of the term “golden handcuffs”? It’s a term that reflects our generation that discusses how people tend to aim for money and a comfortable life rather than happiness. We will get a high-paying corporate job, increase our expenditure, put down a mortgage, buy plenty of items on finance and “settle for less” in a relationship that’s going nowhere. Essentially, that person becomes handcuffed to that environment. Joe Rogan’s talks about this frequently in his motivational statements in various forms. And when that person wants to pursue what actually makes them happy, it dawns on them that it’s a difficult task because they are imprisoned by their own financial dimension that they created for themselves.

In comedic form, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag represents the “golden handcuffs” — the Netflix series follows a young woman named Beanie who always dreamed of being a stand-up comedian — Season 1 shows she has the talent and charisma, but after settling for an office job and becoming strangled in a relationship with an eager, traditional man that wants to follow cultural tropes, she finds herself in a bubbling panic attack and soon-to-be-engaged despite a comedy career opportunity floating right in front of her face, like a carrot.

Bhaag Beanie Bhaag will be relatable for many people. It ties in Indian culture and puts Beanie in a position where she needs to park herself away from traditions by taking a leap of faith. This involves fighting against judgments and gossip and taking on the stand-up world with her bare hands.

The Netflix series is genuinely funny; the first episode really sets up the premise, showing Beanie slowly becoming more anxious as her one-shot for a comedy lifestyle is slipping from her hands. If there’s one message that runs through the veins of this series, then it is “take your chances”. We only live once, and a comedy that gives the true nature of finding happiness is one that easily hits the mark.

At a small six episodes long, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag season 1 could easily become a comedy favorite for audiences as it speaks a resonating language that has an emotional tug.
