About Crushed Season 4

Crushed Season 3 premiered in November 2023 but fans won't have to wait too long to find out what happens to their favourite characters as the follow up final season 4 of the teen drama Crushed has arrived close on its heels on February 9 on Amazon miniTV. The students of Lucknow Central Convent face exam tensions and battle internal emotions as a familiar face returns, testing group dynamics.

Crushed Season 4: Plot

Samvidhan (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) comes back to 11th standard but both Prateek (Naman Jain) and Aadhya (Aadhya Anand) are less than pleased to see them. Meanwhile, Jasmine aka Jaz (Urvi Singh) finds herself in competition with good friend Aadhya over their studies and sees green on Friendship Day. Zoya (Anupriya Caroli) and Prateek also have a slight misunderstanding and Sahil (Arjun Deswal) tries to remain friends with Aadhya.
The narrative is quite atypical to your usual teenage drama as friends fight and the rest of the class gossips about minor issues. There is also pressure about their future looming ahead of them, but for the time being, the students choose to live in the present.

Crushed Season 4: Writing and Direction

Showrunner Sankalp Raj Tripathi has also contributed to the screenplay along with writers Tatsat Pandey and Abhinav Vaidya. These stories are more appealing to the pre-teen crowd who might aspire to be where these older teenagers are. The conflicts presented this season are standard, and all it establishes is that these characters are finally maturing into their own. Directed by Mandar Kurundkar, the six-episode series maintains the expectations from previous seasons but fails to add anything new as it bids goodbye.

Crushed Season 4: Performances

The young cast of Jaiswal, Anand, Singh and Caroli deliver some earnest performances. However, there are so many school and college series on OTT, some of them with overlapping cast members that it's hard to sort out what were the storylines from previous seasons. Certain actors like Naman Jain's Prateek are quite like characters he's played in other series. He's gotten quite typecast as the goofy slacker friend.

Crushed Season 4: Critique

While Crushed Season 4 is relatable for its authenticity and has a certain nostalgia factor, it keeps circling around with the same themes. The arc with Samvidhan and his attempts to win back his friendships with Aadhya and Prateek felt a bit stretched, despite the episodes clocking in at around 25 minutes each. Crushed usually keeps its content light-hearted, but the series could have upped its ante for this final season.
