Netflix comedy Brahman Naman stars Shashank Arora as the titular Naman. We follow him and his three friends who are part of the champion college quizzing team, as they attempt to lose their virginities, all while keeping up their partying and quizzing lifestyle.
The film suffers from an identity crisis. The audience are spoon-fed comedy; from strange and questionable artistic choices such as random cartoon inserts, to telling the same joke many times over. It is adult material that requires an infant’s sense of humour, leaving a disappointed audience.
Inappropriate and juvenile scenes, alongside borderline sexist dialogue between the four friends, culminates in an awkward and cringe-worthy film. Uncomfortable performances and the lack of genuinely original humour will make you feel robbed of your time.
