Hey Prabhu Review
The series stresses the real-life problems of teenagers. It is an overall package of acting, script, cast-all done well. It depicts an interesting life story. It showed real-life problems in a comic way which added a flavor. It seemed more realistic. It teaches that Running away from the problem is never a solution to the problem. Rather than running away, facing it would make you a better person. Life isn’t about Staying active and having millions of followers on social media, it’s all about how you are in real life, at your home and your workplace!
