After giving a jaw-dropping performance as Gurpal Chauhan in the Amazon Prime Video series, Tandav, renowned comedian Sunil Grover is winning netizens hearts, yet again, with his portrayal of Sonu Singh in ZEE5's comedy-thriller series, Sunflower. The much-awaited web series premiered on the streaming service on June 11, 2021. While all the episodes of the Vikas Bahl-directorial released together today, early reviews by viewers as well as critics have started pouring in on social media.
Ever since the makers of Sunflower dropped the much-awaited trailer of the web series on ZEE5's YouTube channel last month, there has been a lot of buzz around this Sunil Grover-starrer. Although ardent fans of the comedian-actor have been curiously awaiting its release for a while now, all eight episodes of the Reliance Entertainment-produced show premiered on the platform earlier today. The story of this newly-released series focuses on the middle-class Sunflower housing society, which is full of quirky characters.
However, after the mysterious death of a resident of the society, the lives of other residents turn topsy-turvy as they, especially Sonu Singh, come under the police's scanner. Following Sunflower's release, netizens have been flocking to Twitter to share their review of this eight-episode web series. While one user wrote, "Whoa, you just can't miss this #Sunflower #Sunflowerreview entertaining, the hilarious dramedy" another tweeted, "Sunflower Review: This thriller film could not create a thrill, the story ended without answering the important questions".
