Gora is perfect for viewers searching for the thriller genre in Bengali scripts. The story depicts Gora’s forgetfulness and bizarre behavior amidst his attempts to solve the serial murder case. Parallelly, the episodes also portray the friendship and trust between Gora and Satyaki. Due to his insane frame of mind, Gora keeps mixing the characters’ names, which is genuinely hilarious at times. The whodunit plot shall fill you with thrill and excitement. With moments of comedy spread throughout the episodes, viewers shall keep guessing throughout about the unveiling of the criminal. The last episode lifts the curtain on the questions and doubts of the audience. Nonetheless, the lunatic nature of Gora at times overpowers the script and seems exaggerated, and thus, IndiaCafe24 gives it 3.5 stars.
