bobby deol web series|Aashram season 3 review: The performances of Bobby Deol and Chandan Roy Sanyal are the only bright aspects in this otherwise dull and formulaic show that reminds one of all the bad 90s’ action films.The self-proclaimed godman Baba Nirala is back with ten more episodes in the third season of Prakash Jha’s popular series Aashram. The series is now officially called Ek Badnaam…Aashram, presumably to avoid offending some folks. However, the title change does not help the show avoid offending audience’s intelligence. At its core, Aashram is a crime drama-cum-thriller but moves at a snail’s pace.
In 2020, Prakash Jha envisioned about this charismatic godman who’ll charm his way through many outside-the-law things, treating women with only one thing (his prashad – those who’ve read my Aashram Review & Aashram: Season 2 Review will get this joke) and then he roped in Bobby Deol to play the role. It’s 2022 and with the blessings of Jio, we’re ready to welcome Baba Nirale with his ‘nirale kaarname’ for the third time.
The show was titled Ashram for the first 2 seasons and after facing the Controversy of targeting Hindus, the makers are now calling it ‘Ek Badnaam Aashram: Season 3’ (Oh! The irony). Baba Nirala is still lusting for power, so much so that he promotes himself to be ‘bhagwan’ this time. Yep, Bobby’s baba turns into ‘bhagwan’ not by doing virtuous deeds for his followers but through a ‘brand building’ plan.

Prakash Jha’s Aashram 3 is the most highly anticipated series of the year. The third installment of Aashram is slated to release on June 3. The series stars Bobby Deol, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Esha Gupta, Aaditi Pohankar, Darshan Kumaar, and Tridha Choudhury in pivotal roles. Here’s how much fees these actors charged for Aashram 3 will leave you stunned.
Actor Bobby Deol will play the role of Nirala in Aashram 3 and reportedly he has charged Rs. 1 crore – Rs. 4 crore rupees for his character.
The self-styled godman of Kashipur is back. And so obviously are his depredations helped along by the corrupt cops and malleable politicians he manipulates with absolute impunity. If that sounds like a whole lot of action, tone down your expectations. Season 3 of Aashram, mounted and executed with flair, delivers only in spurts.
Notwithstanding his dissolute ways, the petty criminal-turned-preacher still has a following so huge that the chief minister of the state is at his mercy, the cops are at his beck and call and he can manipulate the administrative and judicial systems the way he pleases.
Baba Nirala is more powerful than ever – he inches ever closer to mutating from a mortal Baba to a miracle-dispensing Bhagwan. Unfortunately, however, the one miracle that the character is in dire need of – a touch of mystery and menace – eludes him.

Aashram Season 3 Review
Continuing the tradition of ‘biting more than it can chew’, the season starts with Aaditi Pohankar’s Pammi on the run from Baba Nirala as she wants to expose his truth to the world. The issue with this series is it has already shown its best in season 1 which I found average at best, hence it’s been a sloppy slope from there. Things that the viewers must’ve found sensational in season 1 are reduced to mere repetition in this one. In my Aashram: Season 2’s review, I had said that it feels like I’m reviewing season 1 all over again. And, here we go again! The antiques of Bhopa remain to be the most entertaining highlight of the show & that’s been the case since season 1.
Bobby Deol is Bobby Deol! The same he was in seasons 1 and 2. Nothing different he does to be analysed and mentioned about. Chandan Roy Sanyal still remains to be the soul of the show & I feel Prakash Jha should seriously think about a spin-off instead of bringing Aashram back.
Aaditi Pohankar & Rajeev Siddhartha’s characters are grilled down to worse than supporting actors as their story arc shows zero growth since episode 1. Season 4 is all about Aaditi and that’s why it seems she was asked to sit out in this one. Darshan Kumar & Anupriya Goenka’s track is also trimmed down to almost nothing. Esha Gupta was supposed to be this sensual addition for the TG of this show, but that doesn’t really gel well with the storyline. Tridha Chaudhary & Adhyayan Suman’s characters are also sidelined this one.
