Season 1 of Hostel Daze orbits around four first-year students at National Advanced Technical Training Institute (NATTI) where Ankit (Adarsh Gourav), Chirag (LUV) and Jaat (Shubham Gaur) find out that they’re roommates with a veteran fresher- Jhantoo (Nikhil Vijay), who has been repeating his first-year for the past four years.
Keeping aside the sexist dialogues from the first season, the series focuses on not only the issue of ragging but also the lack of female students pursuing engineering. The two female characters in the series, Nabomita (Ayushi Gupta) and Akanksha (Ahsaas Channa) also become a part of this ‘boy gang’.
Season 2 promises to show all the freshers as seniors who are now formulating a plan to rag their juniors. From misguided conversations around sex to ragging as a cyclical event in an engineering college, this trailer seems to follow trends rather than set new ones. However one hopes that the actual season would prove our suspicions wrong.
While the concept seems similar to the other Engineering campus dramas like ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Chhichhore’, the trailer of Season 2 does have its comic moments. The series has been created by beloved TVF (The Viral Fever) and has been written by Harish Peddinti, Saurabh Khanna and Suprith Kundar. Directed by Amir Musanna and Sangram Naiksatam, the show features known as well as unknown young talent.
Season 2 of Hostel Daze releases on 23rd July on Amazon Prime. You can catch the trailer here –
