Stars: Manoj Bajpai, Sharib Hashmi, Priyamani

Director: Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK

Looks like spy thrillers are in this season. Netflix’s rival — Amazon Prime too launched its series starring Manoj Bajpai as Srikant. The spy lives a dual life--one that of a simple and boring father of two and a husband, while running covert missions against terror.

Srikant’s character will be seen grappling with home and terror, and sometimes terror at home. It is left to be seen if Bajpai’s performance will be accepted by the audience. As the show is set in Delhi, it brings home issues like mob-lynching, attacks against those who eat beef and terror threats.

All is well until he meets a drunk and disillusioned girl, which ends up in a night of sex and drugs. He wakes up to her brutally stabbed dead body and is almost immediately caught in police and legal net.

Massey gives a stellar performance as a disillusioned youngster, grappling with the reality of his changed life which he finds tough to accept.

​Delhi Crime
