Funny, slick, and surprisingly relevant, Amazon Prime delivers its best Indian original series since Made in Heaven. Manoj Bajpayee is, as always, in excellent form.

    Overacting from hand-picked actors which remind me the bollywood acting

    My thoughts start and end with in one word, 'WOW'. Just next level. Indian take on Jack Ryan series. Only much better and modeled after current days trends. Series also instigates audience to stop and question their day to day activities and beliefs. Manoj and Priyamani are a treat to watch!

    Amazing show. It does have certai liberal perspective in it , but it does its job in showing what has been happening in India all these while, the root of evil, terrorism.

    Equally fun and endearing...ropes you in a story quickly and at the same time makes you smile and laugh...manoj bajpayee as always steals the show and the rest of the cast are equally fun

    Very edge of the seat show and Manoj Bajpayee has killed it.

    The heading was rhetorical Let me explain why I started watching this only almost 10-12 days after it was released that too with lot of skepticism. But the moment I started watching it I was hooked... I binged it from night 11:30PM to next day morning(Yeah!!!)... Pros: This is by far the best suspense thrillers that has ever come out of India, and according to me on par with breaking Bad albeit with minimum expectations. Each and every character has a character and either it matures or stays the same depending on the situations and motivations surrounding them making them worth to be sympathized with. The production budget is clearly visible and they have spared no cost in making this... The cast is spot on and everyone's acting is par excellence... Cons: So now you might ask, with so many pros this should have been an overnight hit, right? Yeah thats where I come with my list of cons. The story and screenplay is so tight that it keeps you hooked, being said that, every now and then the story throws a curve ball at us in the name of inclusiveness and modernisation... Some times the curve ball hits so far from home it falls on western countries... To make my point clear let me list it out without spoilers ofcourse 1. There is a quite short but raunchy intercourse scene between two character. 2. Blood-Blood-Blood 3. There are few short scenes of high tension scenes between a married lady and her friend who is a boy. Insinuation of course. 4. There is gay sex scene. Now you might argue as scenes go, these aren't a fraction in what Hollywood web series are made of, But therein lies the problem if this was made in Hollywood, right now everyone would be tweeting about i, singing praises and not to mention with quite a lot of buzz around awards(Probably). But being that its made in India and mostly targeted on Indian audience(I guess) it might stay as a hidden gem in plain sight... I myself have watched it in Prime Video, But half way through I was gonna suggest it to everyone and post about it being awesome and mind-blowing, But because of the curve balls I have decided to duck and stay silent. My humble suggestion would be to cut few scenes of curve balls and allow some scenes to be just insinuating rather than showing visually. Re-release and prepare to be showered with praises... It would be a compromise but it would be worth it...
