Acting in the same series as ‘Tandav’, the name of the film is impressive, but unlike the name, the story is slow. This web series is a political drama. In the series, it is fully shown how the political equation changes from time to time. How cheating and deceit in politics happens at every turn is shown mainly in this story. The leaders’ love for the chair and then the game of playing tricks for the chair is shown well in this film. It is clear after watching the series that this chair play is not right or wrong, it is politics and it is for such power and strength.
Now, let us explain how the story begins. As soon as the series (Tandav) starts, it is written on the screen, ‘Bhai Hum To Cheat Kha Gaya …’ The story begins as soon as the rule of right-wing party Jan Lok Dal (JLD) is shown in the country. . Jan Lok Dal is going to win the general election for the third time and this time also it is almost certain that Devaki Nandan (Tigmanshu Dhulia) will become the Prime Minister, but just before the results of the election, news of Devaki Nandan’s death comes. In such a situation, now the contender for the post of Prime Minister is Samki Pratap Singh (Saif Ali Khan), son of Devki Nandan. But they say that no one knows how the camel will turn in politics. The political equation changes in such a way that Anuradha Kishore (Dimple Kapadia), who has been ‘special’ for Devaki Nandan for thirty years, becomes Dimpla Kapadia PM.
Kahani turns from here. How the political game goes, the series revolves around this. With this, an attempt has been made to show the status of the country in the series. Two aspects of the country are shown in the series. The first aspect, where Shining India, the sixty-knot of politicians and industrialists, is shown. On the other side is the country where the general public, farmers and laborers are struggling.
Along with this, emphasis has been laid on student politics in the series (Tandav). It has been shown how people raise their voice in the streets of the university and its echo reaches across the country. The film shows the recent politics of the country, where you will hear a police officer in the film saying, ‘Now the terrorists are not coming from across the border. They are being prepared in these universities. In this student politics, the coin of Shiva Shekhar (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub) is shown flashing, due to which people set high expectations.
It has become a matter of what the story is. Now come what are the flaws in this series. The ‘Tandava’ was confined to the turmoil of politics, the story does not go into much depth. The common man of the country also understands the politics shown in the series. The opening part is very slow for the series. After five-six episodes, the series thrills. So people need a lot of patience to watch it, but once the story catches the flow, you will not be able to lose sight because the story may be a bit dull, but the acting is good. There are some incidents, which you will be able to relate to the real events.
In the series (Tandav), Muslim citizens are shown a soft target of power. At the same time, the angle of student politics is running on the track, then it seems to get derailed somewhere. At the same time, the peasant movement is also shown in the story. One drawback is that all the events are completely separate from each other and it is not possible for an audience to see all of them by relaying them, because in reality these things have happened in different time frames. Some characters and events are shown in the documentary style. It is a mere coincidence that you will find some things inspired by true events, but the story is completely fictional.
The most effective of all artistes is Dimple Kapadia. You will feel connected to his character and will not be able to remove his eyes. At the same time, Saif Ali Khan’s work is also good. He has got the advantage of being a mail lead, but he is not settling as a dictator, but in the last parts of the series, his character appears in front of Nikhar and he is seen playing the role of King Maker. Sunil Grover’s character may not be very big, but his work is fantastic. The work of other artists is also very good. Along with this, there is a glimpse of Pataudi Palace in the background in the series. Camerawork and character outfits are very good.
