What is a Web Series?

Web Series is a series of online videos, released on the Internet. It can be in episode format.

In other words, If a story should require 10 hours of film, so that film breaks in episodes and each episode will have one hour length. So all 10 episodes are called Series. Thereafter which is not released in theater. In this situation it was released on a website and mobile app. That's why it's called a web series.

Why Web Series?

As a matter of fact, the Indian film industry and the television industry are two different networks. Meanwhile Bollywood has changed its usual subjects and adapted to global changes, due to which the taste of people watching movies have been changed.

Plot

Sacred Games is based on Vikram Chandra's critically acclaimed 2006 novel of the same name. So, Sacred Games is not a real story, however, the book and Netflix series combine fiction with true historical events and Hindu mythology. 

Review

This web series is on top position in my Top 10 Best Crime Web Series Hindi in 2020 because of the first season. In brief first season is excellent and best, it's too dark, entertaining and addictive after that people wait for season two eagerly. On the whole, season two is not upto the mark and does not match the standard of season one.

Good Points

  • Directed by Anurag Kashyap, all in all he is the best director for crime base movies and web stories and gives the best output.
  • Excellent story.
  • Excellent actors and acting like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi, Jatin Sarna, Shalini Vatsa, Radhika Apte, Rajshri Deshpande etc. In the final analysis, all actors are good in it.
  • You can not stop watching when you started. Especially in season one.
  • Excellent character building story therefore several characters are famous from this series.

Bad Points

  • Sex, violence and very strong language.
  • By comparison, RAW does not work like the way it shows in it.
  • Second season has lots of unnecessary scenes. 
  • Glorify the crime and terrorism.
  • They show, Hindu Gurus funding terrorism, in contrast which is completely wrong and not based on the reality.

Conclusion:

Finally, director ends it in a sense where you need to decide what will happen or wait for season three. At the present time this is one of the best criminal web series Hindi, with this in mind you have to watch it.

Mirzapur

Platform: Amazon Video prime

Number of Seasons: 1

Number of episodes: 9

IMDb rating8.5/10

Director: Gurmmeet Singh, Karan Anshuman, Mihir Desai

Written by: Karan Anshuman, Puneet Krishna, Vineet Krishna

Cast 

Pankaj Tripathi(Akhanda Tripathi), Ali Fazal (Guddu Pandit), Vikrant Massey(Bablu Pandit),
Divyendu Sharma( Munna Tripathi), Rajesh Tailang(Ramakant Pandit), Shweta Tripathi(Gajgamini Gupta), Shriya Pilgaonkar(Sweety), Rasika Dugal(Beena Tripathi), Abhishek Banerjee(Compunder), Sheeba Chaddha(Vasudha Pandit), Shaji Chaudhary(Maqboo), Harshita Gaur(Dimpy), Kulbhushan Kharbanda( Bauji), Prashant Kumar(Pankaj)

Plot

in short, it's a story of internal gangwar. How siblings(Guddu and Bablu pandit) are involved in gangwar, how they change the business of drugs and weapons and how established gangstar (Akhanda and Munna Tripathi ) oppose them. Simultaneously, it has several side stories of each main character.

Review

When I compare with Sacred Games, I give them equal points. Without a doubt, this is on second position in my list of Top 10 Best Crime Web Series Hindi in 2020 because I don't have options. In other words, some people can like sacred games and some can like Mirzapur, but I like both series.

Good Points

  • Director did a great Job.
  • One dialog is very famous “Bhosadi wale chacha”. Significantly, it is used in roasting videos on youtube. 
  • Excellent story and execution.
  • Excellent actors and acting like Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Divyendu Sharma and Rasika Dugal etc. 
  • Basically, you can not stop watching when you started.
  • Pankaj Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma and Ali Fazal's characters are mind blowing. After all Ali Fazal is a very short minded bodybuilder and has several dark comedy scenes. 
  • Additionally, there are scenes where animal behaviour compares with human behaviour. If you watch carefully Kulbhushan Kharbanda always watches animal channels. Basically that animal channel telling you a story about a web series.

Bad Points

  • Violence and very strong language.
  • Unnecessary masturbation scene of Shweta Tripathi. Seriously it is not required. Comparatively her character in the series does not reflect anything relevant about this scene. 
  • Side stories are boring. 
  • Some scenes are disturbing like a local gun blast in hand, burning a live man and cutting the private part as a punishment. 
  • People who watched season one are waiting for season two and it's coming soon. 
  • Glorify the crime. 

Conclusion:

People who watched season one are waiting for season two and it's coming soon. It is one of the best criminal web series Hindi because of the characters and storyline. On account of all above points, you have to watch it.
