Stephen Fry British actor and writer said this about legendary British humorist PG Wodehouse’s writing: “You don’t analyse such sunlit perfection you just bask in its warmth and splendour” If the same eulogy could be applied to a TV show it would certainly be NBC’s This is Us But just for the heck of it I am going to analyse this sunlit perfection all the same This is Us is one of the most unapologetically soppy American shows you will see The Yankees do not usually make them so sentimental And you know what I absolutely love it Centred around the Pearsons This is Us is about this charmingly dysfunctional family Pearsons are like any other ordinary family you may have stumbled upon maybe not unlike your own – flawed people who while having differences but nonetheless love each other The cultural barriers didn’t stop me in seeing a shadow of my own family in the Pearsons Perhaps families are pretty much the same all over the world Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) is a doting husband to the beautiful Rebecca (Mandy Moore) Their relationship seems like the stuff of dreams And it is – at least until they decide to have kids Randall Pearson (Sterling K Brown) has a happy family with a loving wife and two adorable daughters But he’s discontented about the fact that he was adopted and that somebody abandoned him He wants to find out who really brought him in this world Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) is a successful actor who leads a fluffy sitcom But he is not satisfied with that and wants to do the serious work they do in the theatre Then there is Kate Pearson (Chrissy Metz) a woman who is obese and who wants to sort out her life The first step is obviously losing the weight The narrative is non-linear seamlessly shifting between the past and the present The showmakers use this non-linearity to great effect It does not only help give depth to the primary characters using flashbacks similar to what Lost did but it also reveals surprising details In the first episode particularly the show fools the viewer into thinking that every plot thread exists on the same temporal plane (timeframe) and gives an endearing and beautiful surprise at the end My yardstick for good acting is simply that it should not feel like acting and that is where the cast of This is Us succeeds They make it feel like a glimpse into the dramatised lives of a bunch of real people – who are imperfect and at times infuriating but ultimately fascinating The characters in This is Us are very relatable Performances including those of the secondary cast are overall excellent Plotting is another thing This is Us does quite well If the show’s pilot were a little longer it may have served as a pretty good standalone family-friendly movie As it is every episode of This is Us acts as a self-contained story with a proper series of interconnected events and a denouement while advancing the larger narrative This is quite convenient as one can watch specific episodes after a gap of time and still be fully abreast of the story without forgetting anything important But mind you This is Us is too addictive not to be binge-watched So should you watch it In a word yes This is Us is for you if you are fine with a piece of entertainment that forces your sentiments out without being cloying That makes you shed a tear or laugh or both at the same time It is also for you if you are comfortable with a show that is magical without delving into the supernatural Finally it is for you if you appreciate a sensitively characterised and warm family drama that borders on being melodramatic but stays just short For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsMumbai | Updated: February 6 2014 2:39 pm The hunger strike outside Mumbai University’s Vidyanagri campus at Kalina on Monday Express Related News Students of Mumbai University (MU) under the banners of ‘Save Mumbai University’ and ‘Students Joint Action Front’ went on a one-day symbolic strike Monday They alleged that their demands were not met or discussed at the management council meeting Saturday Students said revoking Prof Neeraj Hatekar’s suspension was just one of their many demands and that they would continue their movement till all the demands were met The hunger strike prompted the university administration to convene a meeting with the students on January 21 A university spokesperson said “A delegation of students had met the pro-vice chancellor and registrar on January 11 They had submitted their charter of demands and we had assured them that we will look into them soon We will meet the students on January 21 at Ambedkar Bhavan in Vidyanagri campus Kalina to discuss the matter” Over 10 students representing various departments of the university went on hunger strike while 300 others including some faculty members supported them Some of the demands made by the students include establishment of a students’ grievance redressal cell setting up of a central placement cell to be initiated by taking into consideration the perspective of each department a competitive academy to be provided with adequate resources and faculty to give students ample opportunity to compete and provision of accessible sports facilities to all students of the university on Kalina campus “The agitation cannot end with the revocation of Hatekar’s suspension We will continue the movement until major grievances of students and teachers are addressed A charter of demands was submitted to the MU administration last week and action was sought within eight days However there has been no dialogue let alone action This shows the lack of commitment on the part of the university towards its students” said Amol Kale a student Kale added “Although Hatekar has been reinstated the points he raised were termed as false and baseless which is not true” Another student said the decision to revoke Hatekar’s suspension was a major victory for campus democracy “We will not give up until the MU administration resolves the issues raised by Hatekar and meets the demands raised by students” said the student The long list
