Picture Office Space, but shot in Mumbai and not funny.

That's harsh, it's more of a cultural romcom about adapting. It does have its cute funny moments, but to rate it badly for not being funny enough just leads me to think you misunderstood it.

Um....except it's not like Office Space AT ALL...and it's not trying to be hilarious. Maybe it's not the humor the reviewer understands or appreciates, but it's definitely entertaining and funny.

I think the reviewer just missed the point of the show, in general. It certainly was humorous, but not in a cutting-edge, sarcastic way (see "The Office"). There was also an undercurrent of poignancy that should be appreciated. The characters were well fleshed-out in a short period of time (unlike, say, the ultimately brilliant Sci-Fi classic "Star Trek - The Next Generation"). The acting was really good and it felt "comfortable". This was not a good review, in my opinion.

The reviewer should take more time with the reviews and not try to quickly compare it some other show and hammer out an poorly considered assessment that is in disagreement with everyone else who took the time to write a more informed review.
