TVF’s Kota Factory offers a glimpse of IIT aspirants’ monochrome life
It is a web series that follows a teenager who joins a coaching institute that prepares students for the Indian Institute of Technology entrance examination.
The Viral Fever (TVF) has collaborated with Unacademy for a new contemporary drama series Kota Factory that revolves around the lives of IIT Aspirants, the infamous industry of coaching centers and psychological effects in a student’s lives. Taking a step further, the series is released in ‘Black and White’ to drive home the point of one-dimensional lives of students thriving in such centers. This TVF Original series is also part of TVF’s commitment of expanding its content slate in 2019 to include more genres and contemporary narratives; giving viewers across the country a fun summer line-up.
Cast of the Series
The lead protagonist is played by Mayur More. Kota Factory also stars Jitendra Kumar (Jeetu), Ahsaas Channa (Shivani), Revathi Pillai (Vartika), Alam Khan (Uday), and Ranjan Raj (Meena).
It is a web series that follows a teenager who joins a coaching institute that prepares students for the Indian Institute of Technology entrance examination. The protagonist deals with intense academic pressure and colorful hostel experience. It might seem easy to draw a comparison between Biswa’s Lakhon Mein Ek, which too dealt with a similar subject. However, the premise of Kota’s Factory is different as seen from the first episode which was released on the TVFPlay app and YouTube on Tuesday.
Story Line of Kota Factory
Directed by Raghav Subbu, the narrative explores the trials, tribulations, and everyday pressures of IIT aspirants as they prepare for the toughest exam of their life. From dealing with different coaching center professors to cheating, the temptations of vices and finding the easy way out, Kota Factory covers the A-to-Z of an IIT aspirant’s life. A story about 16-year-old Vaibhav (Mayur More) who moves to Rajasthan from Itarsi in Madhya Pradesh. A topper in his school, Vaibhav realizes that everyone at Kota is as academically strong as him. But through hard work, passion, and by paying his dues, Vaibhav tries to make himself better.
Kota Factory offers a sneak peek into the nefarious industry of Coaching Institutes. While the pursuit for excellence is certainly paved with hardships, Kota Factory offers a glimpse on the psychological effects that a cat-and-mouse system of education and evaluation can have on the students. For its nonchalant expose of the coaching industry and for addressing the pertinent issue of the psychological pressure of performance on students, Kota Factory should not be missed.
Catch the drama unfold on Kota Factory only on TVF Play and YouTube every Tuesday.
