In fact, it’s fun to watch couples verbally tear each other apart in the Tamil web series. I hate you – I love you which examines their attachment through the arguments they have. In a typical romantic story, conflict is an obstacle that the couple must overcome before resolving. But c I hate you – I love you, conflict is the subject.

Each of the five episodes in the anthology series magnifies one event of the couple’s relationship. After about ten minutes, we get a sharp and economical image of an argument, followed by a cunning resolution. Episodes are often intelligent and always fun.

In the first episode, Alarm, uncertainty is the main cause of conflict; this is a possible baby Search, jealousy in Stop tracking, mansplaining c Permitand trolling on social media Password. But couples don’t know that. They are busy arguing over inconsistencies and this prevents them from really hearing each other.

Alarm sets the tone and format of the series. He clearly follows a dispute between Rahul (Kanna Ravi) and Sneha (Gayatri Shankar). On a holiday, they have a complicated argument, each accusing the other of not organizing the trip properly.

He tries to calm her down when she brushes; she spits just as he tells her he’s just trying to surprise her. It’s not a conversation that’s going well. She borrows his phone to set the alarm and he explodes again. Any attempt by both to improve things only makes them worse. They do not argue to resolve something. They just work off the accumulated anger.

But a smart resolution right Come, both for the deeper problem of Sneha’s uncertainty and for the small question they were arguing about: which tone should we use for the alarm?

IN Search, Vishnu (Dev) and Sruti (Vidya Pradiip) are frantically looking for something, both physically and orally. As they search (we still don’t know what), making sure they don’t wake their sleeping baby, the space around them reflects the progress of their argument.

They wander around the house, continuing to fit into each other’s arguments. They don’t stop even when they’re in the baby’s room; but they are arguing in whispers now (both because of the sleeping baby and because they are getting tired). They look under the bed, the last place they can possibly look before exhausted from both the search and the argument.

As in Alarm, we get very little information about the couple. Their names are barely registered. But dialogues give us – in irritating fragments – all the information we need to feel invested in them.

Stop tracking

Screenwriter and director: Vinayak Vaithianathan

C Stop tracking, you start to feel bored to start with an argument and end with an inventive resolution. However, there is variation here, as both Shalini (Samyukta Viswanathan) and Varun (Sachin) go to a dark place during their dispute.Alarm and Search keep light). This complication means that Stop tracking is also the longest episode and it feelings long. The quick reportage, as in Alarm or Search, present (as when Shalini explains why she accepted a colleague’s request on Instagram), but these moments are rarer.

Stop tracking there is perhaps the most satisfactory resolution in the series, because you may be surprised by both the couple’s whereabouts and the way the conflict is resolved.

Think of it as the opposite of Search where a couple is looking for something together; here everyone pulls in opposite directions. IN Permit, Kaushik (Vinay) drives and Kavia (Teju Ashvini) gives directions. They know where they want to go, but Kaushik thinks Kavia’s instructions don’t help them get there. They swap roles, and with the same results, especially because Kaushik is a huge manspliner.

Just like in Alarm, the dialogues of Vinesh Raja sparkle. It is impossible to take sides. There is always a little revelation about Kaushik or Kavia around the corner that forces you to re-evaluate what you think of them.

Password does not fit comfortably in the series. It starts with an argument and ends with an unexpected resolution. But mil The arguments the couple has are very different. Naughty (Sanjana) is on the phone with the boyfriend she just broke up with. Their conversation, especially after those in the earlier episodes, is a bit tame.

The couple doesn’t really have a problem with each other. Naughty broke up because of something that happened on social media. The emotions behind her decision are less universal and we needed to know more about her to understand that her insecurities are real.

Although tonally different from the other episodes, the series has a full circle because the cause of the conflict in both Alarm and Password is uncertainty.
