“Main aap sab ko moksha ki raha par le ke jaaonga. Japnaam Japnaam (I will lead you all to the path to salvation),” says Bobby Deol as he stands in front of a sea of devotees in the opening shot of the trailer of Aashram, which marks the foray of director Prakash Jha into the web-series space.
Deol essays the role of a debauch godman, Baba Nirala Kashipur wala, as viewers are taken on a journey of the meteoric rise of this small-time soothsayer into India’s top Godman. In true Prakash Jha style, the web drama is a vivid portrayal of how the Godmen in India operate by taking advantage of the blind faith of devotees to push their own agendas.
“He is not a godman. He is a conman.” These lines from the trailer pretty much summarize the central theme, as we are shown glimpses of the mortal remains of women found in the vicinity of the Godman’s ashram as police officers get on the trail of his dark crimes.
