The strongest competition on the OTT platform if it is about a plot is crime stories. Television’s three ‘C’ ie cinema, crime and cricket are also on OTT and every OTT is trying to serve these three among its customers according to its own. Ekta Kapoor has made one such effort with her team by creating a new crime show ‘Mumbhai’.
The kind of content that ‘Queen’ has been on the small screen, the stories of Ekta Kapoor are not sold on OTT and what Ekta Kapoor has pioneered to ‘sell’ OTT, according to Gabbar Singh, her name. Has been completely mixed into the soil. The web series ‘Mum Bhai’ tries to hold the night between these two poles and fails to balance.
The web series ‘Mum Bhai’ is the brainchild of Ekta Kapoor and her bestie director Apoorva Lakhia. Like Hussain Zaidi, Apoorva Lakhia feels that Mumbai’s underworld is no better than him, but it is important to understand that the way crime stories are told onscreen is constantly changing.
The web series ‘Mum Bhai’ has its own story, its main cast has also done well, but its direction is poor and its setting is incomplete. The tension, suspense, thrill of a crime series does not flourish here. The biggest weak link in the series is its action department.
He does all the other things before becoming a part of the Class of 83, but the ATS’s Kumble also becomes the same once he shines in the police.
Angad Bedi, who played the hero or heroine brothers, is the real spark of the web series ‘Mum Bhai’. He has acted in the role of Bhaskar. Filmmakers should notice this and a good artist should be taken out of the side lane and given a mainstream role. Sikander Kher has also done a lot of hard work and it also appears on the screen. Sameer Dharmadhikari has supported the story well. Sandipa Dhar’s acting edge seems to be getting weaker. They need to work on themselves more.
The web series ‘Mum Bhai’ is a weak web series this season, which does not stand in front of ‘Class of 83’ on Netflix.
