But it has raised many questions about our government and its process.
“Laakhon Mein Ek” series showcases extraordinary heart-touching stories of ordinary people of our country that fights the corrupt system to bring a change.
But how long a person has to fight for the right cause?
Amazon Prime’s Laakhon Mein Ek season 2 shares with the audience the journey of a junior doctor Dr. Shreya, played by Shewta Tripathi, (who has done many web series) got transferred in a village named Sitlapur for conducting a cataract camp.
She is continuously facing challenges from the village people from the day she arrived. With time goes by, she slowly understands the village issues, medical issues, their innocence and why villagers have no trust in the government hospital facility.
Slowly, by conquering the challenges she and her team earned the trust of the villages, and convinced them to register their name in the cataract camp for free treatment.
On the other hand, dirty political games are going on that has directly influenced the cataract camp. The government healthcare doesn’t have the supplies for the cataract camp which leads to trouble.
Dr. Shreya unaware of all this tries her level best to help the villagers. In the meantime, drama happened between the hospital CMO and the political parties but nothing came out of it. Hence, the CMO has to take a decision which he had no idea how bad it will be going to turn into.
As there was no medicine supply for the camp, the agency that supplied the medicines were all expired which was known to none except the owner of the agency.
He played foul as a result of which the camp was a big disaster risking the life of the villagers.
Nobody is ready to accept their fault. The lead character Dr. Shreya’s moral values weren’t allowed her to take the side of her senior doctors. As they were trying to save their own positions but like any responsible and sensible citizen, Dr. Shreya took her stand for the villagers.
Unlike season 1 of Amazon Prime’s Laakhon Mein Ek, season 2 talks about the corrupt and broken government medical system of our country. As we all know or gone through some bad experience in the government hospitals in our life too.
Due to lack of medical supplies, infrastructure people now have lost their faith in government healthcare. The system is rotting day by day, doing nothing to improve the government medical care institutions.
Where will the villagers go for their treatment?
They don’t have money to go to a private hospital. They can’t even go to government hospitals. How will they treat?
Biswa Kalyan Rath has tried to show us the deep-rooted ugly picture of the medical system of our country and even the thought process of high society people through Amazon Prime’s Laakhon Mein Ek season 2.
Shweta Tripathi (Dr. Shreya) whom we have seen playing different roles in several TV series has nailed her character in Laakhon Mein Ek season 2. Her character is the most sensible, kind-hearted, and positive personality. Although she is the junior doctor, she is a more reasonable and better human being than her seniors.
Her constant effort in wanting to help the villagers shows her being a responsible doctor.
Still, amidst all, she stands alone, rejected and dishonored at the end.
Well, the creator has taken a responsibility to make a change, or you can say an effort has been made to show the audience the true color of the government medical system in villages and in the cities.
But is it something new to us?
I would say, no.
We all know extremely well about all the issues that the creator has tried to convey to us. It is indeed, a series sending a powerful message but there is a lack of uniqueness.
As a viewer, I didn’t feel I have watched something new, or I could even say there is any ‘wow’ element in the story.
From the beginning of the story, it is quite predictable except for the very last scene where Dr. Shreya has to go to prison.
She was in utmost dismay that none of her seniors did try to help her. The supporting cast were all excellent, but it is only Shweta Tripathi who catches our attention.
I really liked the fact that the creators didn’t pay attention in introducing glamour and glitter instead chose to tell the story and characters that we could all connect.
Last but not the least, there is a solid one-line dialogue delivered by the character Raja Babu which summarize the entire story “Ask the government to spend more on the medicines and less in campaigning.”
I wonder will that time be ever come?
