A satisfying conclusion to a powerful drama
16 September 2017 | by parthpant19See all my reviews

In one sitting..In one sitting I watched 'Big Little Lies'. Don't know if its the magnificent cast, or the surreal direction or the addictive screenplay but this series magnificently works. Also I am in love with the theme song that plays at the beginning.

So talking of the finale, it couldn't have been handled better- it was intense, emotionally powerful, empowering and more importantly satisfying. I was really impressed with the way they wrapped it all in a dramatic ending. I had guessed the mystery and whodunit scenario in the 3rd episode itself but still was thrilled to see my theory actually being true. The entire cast was brilliant- Witherspoon, Kidman, Woodley, Skarsgård, Dern, Scott and Kravitz. But overall this show has been governed by Witherspoon- her bitchy likable character was easily the best part.

BLL's mastery lies in the fact that it covers more issues than it promises and serves as an eye opener for sensitive issues and plight of women in it.

Overall a heavenly bliss to be a witness of a show this good...
