Crackdown Web series Review: The image of the deputy of the research and analysis wing (RAW), an intelligence agency working to protect the country from external threats, has been created by the director Apoorva Lakhia in his first web series ‘Crackdown’, after seeing a circular of this agency If released from the side, it should not be surprising. People engaged in the work of national security are not monks, so far it is fine, but even such poor people are not that, otherwise there is no moral reason for their involvement in military teams and intelligence agencies.
It is said that Apoorva Lakhia got the first job of his career in the film ‘Lagaan’ because Aamir Khan wanted a Hollywood return guy. Apoorva further found work in accordance with his image. However, under the direction of Apoorva, who has directed Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan, there is no progress in the last 17 years. There is no special creativity in moving a drone from one SUV to another. The story is clichéd, the direction is second-rate and the courage to face Saqib Salim no more remains in the audience.
The web series ‘Crackdown’ is the story of a Raw agent. Nam Riyaz Pathan, everyone in the office calls him RP, why? Probably named everything in the name. If the viewers who have watched series like Family Man and Special Ops have to watch this series till the end, then all such questions will have to be ignored because the questions that its makers did not do by themselves while making this series are all in front of the audience. Like Betal’s questions are sitting on his shoulder. The answer has to be given to the audience, not to them, what will happen if they keep quiet, it has already been told a hundred times before.
So RP works in a unit of RAW whose existence is not known to anyone. He and his team report directly to their chief Ashwini, who has problems with the name of her future son-in-law. Is a young daughter. After a year, the wife is still worried about the wedding and is her own way of reducing it. The story, which lasts for eight episodes, is also a trek by Pakistani terrorists and RPs, where the heart-wrenching emotion could be questioned for the sake of Watan, but Riyaz has already been made RP by RP. Yes, it is necessary for the writers to understand how the agents of RAW mix with the common people and the six pack abs do not show them in front of any girl.
The casting of the web series ‘Crackdown’ is its weakest link, neither Saqib Salim nor Shriya Pilgaonkar seem comfortable in their roles. Iqbal Khan’s character seems to be implicated in the story only because someone wants a villain here, or how someone will become a hero. Rajesh Telang is definitely relaxed whenever he comes on screen. But, the problem here is that even after the first season is over, it is not possible to decide what the director wants to say. While editing 10 episodes at once, his 16 episodes appear to have been saved for the first season and eight for the second season. Netflix has repeated this mistake in its series ‘She’ earlier. If Ignore this release of Mid Week, then the rest of the week may be disturbed if not better.
