Dev is a 30 year-old actor, living in New York City. His life goes by in a humorous, yet meaningful sequence of events. Everything he does is usually related to hanging out with his three friends, finding a relationship, or getting ahead in his career.
Like his character, Aziz also interned for Nickelodeon in his early 20s. See more »
Aziz Ansari's character's name is Dev Shah and yet he is shown speaking Tamil in the childhood shots. It is not entirely out of the realm of the possible for a 'Shah' to live in Tamil Nadu but it is a stretch that they would talk Tamil at home and address their grandfather as 'Thatha'. People with the surname Shah are usually from Gujarat and speak Gujarati. See more »
Man, why'd you drag me to a work party?
'Cause you're my buddy. You're my friend. I want you to meet my coworkers.
Oh, that's nice.
Yeah, plus there's this girl here I'm trying to get with and if I showed up by myself, that'd seem kind of lame.
Uh-huh, I get that.
And I asked a bunch of other people to come, they said no.

Master of None is a Netflix original TV-series that at first glance looks nothing more than your mediocre story with a single guy trying to find his love of his life. After watching through the first season one can absolutely say that it is more than that, it is funny, romantic, and sad. And goes deeper than most romance themed movies and shows.
Master Of None focuses on Dev (Played by Aziz Anzari), an Indian- American who is in his 30's and is still single. In his journey of finding the perfect girl he continuously turn down girls, always trying to find someone better, all this without knowing that the perfect girl is none existing, but only attainable in the right mindset. Every episode spread his journey out, from dating, social life and work life. While the story might not in itself sound original, the message is bigger than what the eye can see. It is not about his journey, but what he discovers while uncovering it. The story is entertaining, but the message is not really noticed before your good in the season. What I feel is important to address is that every episode is special, one episode will make you laugh, while another might give you the chills when it gets heated. However most of the episodes are somewhat more mixed, giving you a "I really want to laugh, but it might be a little inappropriate" Feel.
Dev is definitely a great protagonist. He is the good guy, always fighting to make the perfect choices, but the cast is bigger. I will definitely say that the cast is spot on, every character feel believable, even the parents to Dev (Who is Aziz actual parents). They do however have some less believable moments, but never anything noteworthy. Rachel (played by Noel Well) is definitely one of my favorite character, she is easily likable, which is important after how much time she uses with Dev. The chemistry between Dev and Rachel feels believable, and exciting, making those Cuddly scenes more entertaining and believable than in other shows and movies.
As said earlier, episodes are different and some of them more emotional filled compared to other who will make you laugh more. It is a nice twist compared to other shows who feels the same every time. It is more believable with episodes that are different in themes. Just like life, Sometimes it is fun, sometimes it's not. You can therefore relate a lot to the show.
Overall, Master of None is a stretched out romantic journey that really doesn't tell something new, but something better. The content is cared for, and feels relate able. The Cinematography is great, and sometimes it is just done perfectly. Master Of None is gonna make you laugh at most, but still make you question both yourself, and our society for the better.
