This web series of Netflix had high expectations from the audience, as none other than ‘Taj Mahal 1989’ has influenced the series this year. Besides writing by Imtiaz Ali, the series also stars powerful actors like Vijay Verma and Aditi Pohankar. Let’s know how cinematic khichdi is made after so many spices?
The story of the web series is of a senior police constable Bhoomika Pardeshi. The circumstances of the role are not very special. Bhumika’s husband is going to divorce her because of her physical relationship. At the same time, her sister is more beautiful than that and she feels jealous. There is also the mother of Bhoomika, who is always ill. Looks like a tepical film background. But the police constable’s position on the screen seems quite real.
IN Five Points: From these five reasons you can see Imtiaz Ali’s web series’ She
The role’s life changes when Fernandes, the crime branch’s officer, persuades him for an operation. The role goes as a prostitute to catch the big smuggler ‘Sasya’ of Mumbai’s drugs and heroines. She brings him. After this, his own meaning for the role starts changing. After capturing ‘Sasya’, the role is sent back to the undercover operation. This time he has got the task of catching the boss of ‘Sasya’ and the big smuggler ‘hero’ of Asia. You have to watch the series to find out if the role catches it.
What felt special?
The best thing about the web series is its actors. Vijay Varma (Sasya) has not only made a great grip on the language, but has justified his character completely. His character is quite gray in color. Vijay Verma has earlier appeared in the part of Zoya Akhtar in Netflix’s web series ‘Ghost Stories’. According to that series, Vijay has done an excellent job here. Aditi Pohankar, who plays Bhumik Pardeshi, has also done a good job. At the same time, Vishwas Kani in the role of a policeman also seems quite right.
Apart from this, the director has taken care of one thing in the web series that it never takes you beyond time and space. The way the artists hold language and dialogue seems to be excellent. However, at times, Aditi Pohankar seems nonchalant. The technical aspects of the web series are also good. The art direction is quite right.
What is missing
The story of the web series is quite weak. Look at the level of Imtiaz, it is quite disappointing. The web series never catches speed. It is constantly slow. You need a lot of patience to see this. There are some such characters, which do not matter if they are not there. Like Imtiaz’s film ‘Tamasha’, it too has a crazy old age. It is quite difficult to understand why it is there, what its work is. The web series has been written on the basis of a woman’s ambition and thinking, but the ending does not seem to be so special.
There is not much focus on the crime part, while there is plenty of space for it in the web series. An attempt has been made to keep the work of policemen realistic. However, loop holes are often seen in this.
In the end
Dark does not just mean darkness. The thrill does not come from complicating the story. Looks like something on ‘She’. Throughout the web series, you are engaged in finding excitation. Sometimes it goes off the top just like a bouncer. Acting is the only reason, for which you can watch this series.
