Ali Abbas Zafar has proved his mettle as a filmmaker and now, he makes his digital directorial debut with Amazon Prime Video’s web series titled Tandav. The series features Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Kritika Kamra, Sunil Grover, and many other actors.
It’s a political drama that revolves around Samar (Saif) whose father Devaki Nandan (Tigmanshu Dhulia) is the Prime Minister of the country and soon, the new election results are to be announced. Samar kills his father Devaki to be the next Prime Minister of the country, but it’s not easy for him as he has to face many hurdles.
Written by Gaurav Solanki we won’t say that the series offers something great when it comes to the story, but Ali Abbas Zafar’s narration makes it different from the other political drama that we have seen. Also, a few things in the web series feel very relevant because maybe those things have happened in the country or it’s happening right now.
While the narration is damn good, Zafar has also got the perfect cast for the series. Saif Ali Khan has nailed it as Samar. The way he walks and the way he talks, he is just perfect as the man who is greedy to be the next Prime Minister of the country. Standing tall with Saif is Dimple Kapadia. She is truly amazing in the series. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub is just awesome, and Kritika Kamra also leaves a mark.
All the other actors like Sunil Grover, Gauahar Khan, Shonali Nagrani, Dino Morea, Paresh Pahuja, and Sara Jane Dias get a good scope and they have performed well.
Also, one more thing that impress us in Tandav is the background score. It’s just perfect for a drama like this.
On the whole, Tandav is a good watch, and performances take the web series a notch higher.
