What happens when technology takes over?
A scary dream.
Arre’s (brand) ‘A.I.SHA’ is about a 26-year-old genius app developer Sam who works under a vicious megalomaniac boss. To prove that he is not a loser he develops the perfect artificial intelligence app called A.I.SHA (short for Artifical Intelligence Stimulated Humanoid Assistant). Things start going against him when A.I.SHA develops a mind of her own. Things get even worse when A.I.SHA falls madly in love with Sam.
A.I.SHA knows everything about Sam and now he wants to destroy A.I.SHA. Will he be successful?
The series is heavily inspired by the Frankenstein series of Hollywood but it’s not a copy and doesn’t lose its originality at any moment.
A.I.SHA – #My Virtual Girlfriend
By its name, you can guess that it will be a light comedy, but it’s not. A.I.SHA – #My Virtual Girlfriend is full of dark humour and suspense. After watching the first episode you will be wanting more and more and it’s difficult to master these kinds of direction tricks when you are doing something out of the league. There are seven episodes in season one.
- A unique concept tried by the makers. A good concept which has never been touched before by the web series makers of India.
- The show is directed in such a way that you will want to know what happens next and you won’t be able to wait to see the next episode.
- Sameer’s character is original and relatable; all IT professionals will connect with Sam.
- The video diaries and visual effects are impressive.
- The conversation between the characters is minimal; no unnecessary dialogues.
- The dialogues could have been more impactful.
From Indian Original Web Series perspective, A.I.SHA, Arre’s concept of romantic sci-fi thriller is definitely interesting and earns extra points.

A.I.SHA My Virtual Girlfriend – A message
The show touches many important issues like the youth’s obsession with AI and social networking.
“It’s going to be a real concern some years down the line. AI is already smarter than us. How far are we ready to go?” wonders Singha. Ram adds, “Anything I want to be associated with had to be dark and serious, and that’s why the show takes an ugly turn. That’s why the question ‘what happens when your perfect girl turns on you?’”
The web-series has also been translated to Telugu and Tamil to reach a wider audience.
A.I.SHA – My Virtual Girlfriend will exceed your expectations. A must watch.
