As the heydays of cable TV are numbered, the internet is brimming with entertainment content to the full. There is no shortage of TV series, except for quality.
"Bachelor Point," a cringe-worthy drama series was originally telecast on Channel 9. Ever since, the show has gained a considerable following on YouTube.
The story revolves around a group of young men, all bachelors. All of them journey towards Dhaka to enrol into a private university. They stumble upon each other on their first class, and eventually become friends.
Kabila, one of the bachelors, is the heart of the serial. His flamboyant Noakhali accent is a staple part of the show. He cuts his university lecturer off while he was speaking in English by saying, "Banglate bola jayna sir? English e bolle mone hoy BBC news shuntesi! (Could you please speak in Bangla sir? English lecture sounds like a BBC news)."
As the bachelors become university freshmen, their parents do not miss out on the absurdity of high tuition fees. Once the admission officer says it will cost 5,36,000 Taka for an undergraduate degree, a parent says, "Gari kinte ailam naki?(Am I here to buy a car or what?)."
Nihal, a rather snobbish guy, also belongs to the same group of bachelors. He proudly announces he is settled in the USA, and only here for study purpose.
Nabila, a classmate of the bachelors, ends up renting the guys an apartment at her father's place. The ragtag bunch of freshmen enter a new phase of their lives in Dhaka. The domestic adventures of the bachelors unfold as the series goes on.
In case you are into over the top comic relief, "Bachelor Point" is entertaining and watchable. Give it a try.
