Story:

The story talks about an IPS officer who gets to deal with a few crucial cases related to local militants and later a terrorist group that aims to destroy our country.

Review:

The story begins with Regina Cassandra's Kavya Iyer leading the operation in a militant area. She gets introduced as a ruthless and intelligent IPS officer who is also a single mother to an eight-year-old boy and lives with her mother. Due to her strong opinion and risking the whole team's safety to nab a criminal, she gets suspended from a crucial case. However, her true patriotism for the nation and conviction for her work don't let her be far from the investigation for a longer time, and she gets to work on it again. She sets her course with a fantastic team to nab the serial bombers, for which she embarks on her thrilling journey in different parts of the country.

The series keeps Regina's background as a South Indian, which lets you smoothly ignore the tone of her dialogues in Hindi. It reminds me of when Bollywood kept going with Katrina Kaif, a foreign-born Indian girl, in almost all of her films.

The gorgeous actor made us all gasp with her performance as a confident yet elegant woman in Rocket Boys, while her classical dance performance was the cherry on the cake. Similarly, Regina wins hearts in Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke with a completely opposite character from the 2022 show. She is firm in nature and too adamant to save the nation, yet emotional enough to seem human. She also kicks some bottoms really well in a few great action sequences.

We need actors like Barun Sobti, who is an actor of great capabilities and beautifully supports Regina's high-octane character. Even in the course of taking a divorce, the Asur actor doesn't let his humility come in the way of his wife's career, where he thoroughly roots for her and her achievements.

Sumeet Vyas is the surprise package in the show, who gives you a vibe the way a cold-blooded serial killer does to the audience with his kind yet quirky look and quiet yet firm behaviour. Gayathrie Shankar, who predominantly appears in Tamil and Malayalam cinema, supports the Tripling actor as another antagonist.

Mita Vashisht and Chandan Roy are apt as supporting yet important characters. The latter has come a long way since TVF's Panchayat Season 1.

Manish Chaudhari appears in the series just for a couple of minutes as Mita's husband and nothing more. However, the climax hints at a second season, and the audience might expect his stronger and more important part in the sequel for the terrific actor he is, who can make himself remembered in the viewers' minds just with an appearance.

The writers have done a phenomenal job of creating a narrative that is both gripping and timely, as well as fast-paced, at the same time. Meanwhile, director Srijit Mukherji put together the show creatively and intelligently, which keeps you hooked to the screens most of the time.

Meanwhile, the reason that this terrorist organisation gives in the story after owning the bomb blast in the country seems time-worn, while an avenge story behind all the political assassinations could have made the narrative smoother.

Verdict:

Regina Cassandra, Sumeet Vyas, Mita Vashisht, and Chandan Roy keep the show going at all times, while the director and writers' conviction in the gripping story make it worth watching by all kinds of audiences.
