‘Unsorted’ starring Mugdha Agarwal, Vikram Bhui and Tanya Singh Bhatnagar is receiving continued applause for its realistic portrayal of modern-day challenges the youngsters go through.
The story revolves around Tara (fashion designer), who wishes to marry her long-time boyfriend, Naman (an IT professional), who is sceptical about the idea as he wants to move base for a better job opportunity. This impacts their relationship and matters worsen when Tara finds Naman getting closer to his beautiful office colleague, Seher. The couple is eventually faced with the dilemma to stay together or to let go of the love they shared for years.
Just like this ‘imperfect couple’, today’s generation too faces numerous challenges at an emotional level while trying to be at peace with their personal and professional lives.
Here’s taking a look at 5 modern-age emotional conflicts, the ‘Unsorted’ sheds light upon:
The Desire To Be Perfect
As the modern generation has become competitive, the desire to be perfect in every aspect of life has become supreme. Perhaps, the choice to perceive life from an idealistic perspective rather than a realistic perspective seems the cause of emotional troubles. Often in the rat race to stand out, we sometimes make decisions at the stake of our emotional and mental well-being, thereby digressing from our long-suppressed passions. It is important for us to realise that problems will come and we indeed should not wait for a perfect life to happen.
Choosing Between Emotion And Ambition
It is said that one must be less emotional and sensitive while trying to achieve their goals and ambitions. As the youth of today interprets being ‘sensitive’ as being ‘impractical’, they are often stuck in a dilemma to make a choice between the two. However, it is possible to balance if one knows how to make the best use of both qualities in a practical manner. If one channels their emotions positively towards their ambitions, the chances of emotional satisfaction while pursuing their goals become higher. Moreover, setting your ambitions while keeping your emotional state into consideration would push us to set realistic goals.
Allowing The Past To Influence Our Present
In the course of life, everyone has had experiences that have largely moulded their present personalities. Despite consciously moving on from not-so-good experiences, somewhere subconsciously the old memories still influence one's emotions after years. One compulsively makes preconceived notions of present situations on the basis of what happened in the past. As life moves ahead, it is important to shed old memories and make space for new ones. Having said that, assuming that things that did not happen in the past cannot happen in future is an impractical belief to abide by.
Feeling Guilty For Being Confused
In the fast-paced world of today, most people seem to have a certain sense of clarity with regard to their goals. In such a generation where being clear seems one of the most basic tasks, it is natural for the ones experiencing uncertainty to indulge in a guilt trip for losing out on time. Further, the idea of not ‘being left behind’ causes added pressure along with the fear of being judged. With so many options for a platter, it is alright to be unclear for a certain amount of time and explore those options.
The Compulsion To Overthink
As one tends to invest emotionally and mentally in almost everything too much, it’s common to perceive minor issues as huge for a long period of time. As millennial is a transition generation from minor to wider internet adoption, most of them are influenced by the internet world. Some are suffocated by their internal feelings, restricting them to act to their true potential. This leads them to draw unrealistic comparisons and over analysing situations not even entirely true.
The show is a perfect comical take on the issues surrounding the generation of today, making it a perfect comfort show to watch. Have you watched it yet on Disney+ Hotstar?
