Tandav Web Series Review
Director Ali Abbas Zafar knows what season the audience needs. However, in this cleverness, he has not been able to hold the story as much as was expected. When the story starts, you feel that there will be many types of political maneuvers in it, but you will feel disappointed. If you have seen the American series ‘House of Cards’ and are hoping for a political drama in the same way, then you are going to be disappointed.
Saif Ali Khan is stylish in the whole series and his performance is also appreciated, but you will find him appearing repeatedly in the Aviator Sunglasses in Slomotion. Speeches about politics have been overblown and the dialogues seem ineffective after a while.
However, one thing that should be appreciated is that Ali Abbas Zafar has beautifully displayed the facial expressions of all the actors in the close-up, but his grip on dialogue and story seems to be nineteen. By the way, an attempt was made to link this web series to India’s politics of the last 5 years. In this, you will get to see student politics, use of sedition law, political conspiracies, agitation of farmers, propaganda of IT cell.
But still it does not satisfy you. One thing that can make you happy is the acting of the actors. Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Sunil Grover and Kumud Mishra praise the great acting, but due to the weak story and screenplay you will not be as happy with this series in the end as you were hoping for.
Why to watch: If you want to see a spicy political drama on the weekend, then you can see Tandav web series.
