The story of the series begins with the family of Harshad Mehta (Prateik Gandhi), whose father is in a cloth business and has been destroyed. Harshad wants to take the risk from the beginning, he is in love with risk. He has to leap like a leopard. He has the same formula that there is no formula. Its principle is also one, just make money.
For this, he sometimes becomes a cobra, sometimes hears Einstein’s mind and by doing so he becomes Amitabh Bachchan of Dalal Street. Despite having 70 criminal cases and 600 civil cases, he was the hero number one of the common people. From the chawl of Kandivali, he made the journey to the penthouse at Marine Drive just by flirting with his mind and risk.
Episode by episode his audience will come in front of the audience. Then there is an entry in his life of a capable journalist, Sucheta Dalal (Shreya), and one of his news of how a storm comes in Harshad’s life, how Harshad becomes part of a bank’s 500 crore scam, the whole story interestingly Director Hansal Mehta.
What’s good in this series:
The dialogues of the web series are awesome. If the show had been released on the big screen, it would have competed with films made on Wall Street. He has shown complete honesty not only in the characters but also with his costumes, body language and background of that era. From faithful tea spots to the entire atmosphere of the stock market. Director Hansal deserves congratulations. Also, his writing team should get credit, he has created a beautiful story and written strong dialogues.
What’s bad in this series:
The duration of the film could have been reduced slightly.
For director Hansal Mehta, Mukesh Chhabra has probably chosen the cast with a microscope, one character’s acting is going to be settled in mind. Prateik Gandhi brought Harshad’s character to such a way that the audience might not hesitate to see the original Harshad’s face after seeing him. His theatre background makes this character more meaningful. His body language, dialogue delivery, costumes, all awesome.
Shreya has played the role of Sucheta Dalal in a great way. Shreya has shown well how the journalists who supported the truth used to be that curve. Sharib has also performed in small attendance. Lalit, Anant, Rajat, Nikhil Dwivedi have also done well.
