Eternally Confused And Eager For Love Review: Flimsy but fun for the most part
The eight-episode series depends on the scatty son of a senior marketing executive (Rahul Bose) with a company that manufactures diapers. Learn to catch your own shit before it triggers a stink, his old man advises the boy after he lands into trouble on a blind date and requires a pep talk.
It is neither his dad nor his mom (Suchitra Pillai) in whom Ray reposes his trust. They have at best a peripheral role in his life. All his faith is reserved blindly and entirely for the figurine of a wizard that dangles from a keychain – a personification of the boy’s candid, chatty conscience. The imaginary confidant speaks incessantly and repeatedly reminds the boy that he is an embarrassment.
- Eternally Confused and Eager for Love is, to some extent, a tale of mishaps and misfires. After one date goes horribly wrong for Ray, the unstoppable Wiz pipes up: “This is your version of a horror story.” Indeed, Ray lurches from one situation to another in the fond hope of a life-altering miracle. That is his lot.
Miracles elude the show. It stays confined within a severely limited graph. Eternally Confused and Eager for Love is obviously targeted at at a Gen-Z audience, which will probably find a lot to relate to.
