TVF Pitcher is a story of four friends Naveen Bansal (Naveen), Jitendra Maheshwari (Jitu), Yogendra Kumar (Yogi), and Saurabh Mandal (Mandal), decide to enter the start-up world by launching their own start-up. Things are kicked off by Naveen who, angry at not being given his due at work, resigns in a drunk state. At the same time, he receives news of his B-Plan reaching the final round of the NASSCOM start-up conclave. This begins a series of situations in which the four friends rediscover what they really want in life and the challenges they face in getting their start-up idea off the ground. This story is inspired by the HBO TV series “Silicon Valley” but the plot is well designed in accordance with Indian audiences who are not well aware of the Idea of Startup.
The show is brilliantly written and acted. The casting, done by a fellow TVF member Nidhi Bisht, works well as the four friends seem very real and raw. It’ll be unfair to categorize Pitchers as a buddy-comedy. Of course, it’s funny and is about friends, but so are other shows, such as Baked, on YouTube. But where Pitchers stands out is in its intellect. It’s very intelligent yet never comes off as pretentious. It never overdoes the buddy-comedy thing and avoids clichés.
Probably one of the reasons why each episode of TVF’s Pitchers has more than a million views is because the Indian audience has been craving for a show like this, one that takes its viewers seriously. The show has also been ranked in IMDB’s Top 250 TV list at rank 50.
At about 40 minutes each, episodes are crisp and the entire season can be binge-watched in a single day on the TVF Play website or on YouTube. A must watch, Pitchers, simply put, is miles ahead of the curve.
Since the release of TVF Pitcher in 2015, fans are asking for a second season but so far no response has been given from TVF’s team. This what your fav Actors are doing nowadays:
