Episode 1: Khabardaar
The starting scene of this Episode shows a rich boy driving his luxury car. He is throwing currency notes at poor children in the street. He stops at some point and throws a bunch of notes on a person. That person is none other than Vasant itself. Vasant Gawde is watching a dream. He wakes up when one of his friends informs him that his mother and father are involved in a quarrel. When he reached home, he noticed his father beating his mother because she robbed Rupees 2000 from Shroff's house. She was robbed because she wanted to gift Vasant a shirt and a cake on his birthday. Vasant arranged money and handed it to Shroff, requesting that he not fire her mother from work
After completing his working shift, Vasant meets his only best friend, Peter. He told Peter that today was his birthday and he would meet his lover Madhu. She is a slut in the series. Vasant loves her very much. After some time, Aapa reached the room where both were present, and she asked Vasant to leave the room as Shetty Seth is coming. Shetty Seth is a powerful politician. Shetty Seth also wants Madhu, and he often visits her.
After that, Vasant returned to his workplace, the public toilet, where he learned that an old lady was lying unconscious in the washroom. He helps her to get up, cleans her, and drops her at her house. In favour, the old lady gives her a bangle and says Vasant will get everything before time. Vasant got confused. On the way, some people robbed him; they took All Shetty Seth's money that Aapa gave him to deliver. They smashed his face with the bangle the old lady gave and robbed it away. His face is poorly injured.
Shetty asks Madhu whether Vasant is her boyfriend, but she says nothing. He thinks of killing him but does not as per Madhu's wish. Before sleeping, Vasant installed the Khabardaar app. This app gives all the latest news about the city. The next day, he reads a notification on the Khabardaar app about heavy rain in Mumbai and the breaking of the Sodawala bridge after the inauguration, in which seven were injured and one died. He tells everything to Peter. He reached the inauguration venue and saw that bridge was safe. The next moment, the bridge got collapsed, and it started raining.

This series contains drama, action, thrill, suspense, and fantasy. Vasant works as a cashier in a public toilet. The idea of realism in his life is well-maintained throughout the series. The plot of this web series is unique and depends on the concept of future prediction. Vasant experienced a miracle in his life; he started seeing the future in the present. At the start of the series, he is poor, kind-hearted, and humble. He does not judge people by their profession. As the series moves forward, it is shown how a man changes when money comes to him. After 2-3 episodes, the transition, emotional change, and character are missing in the series. The acting of Bhuvan Bam is impressive in the series. If you haven't watched this series yet, consider this series to watch in your free time. This series does not bore you.
