SPECIAL OPS: Web Series at HotStar Specials (VIP): Review

Special Ops is an action packed thriller web series directed by Neeraj Pandey who earlier directed superhits like Special26 and Baby. His directorial debut film ‘A Wednesday’ won him National Film Award in the category Best First Film of a Director. With so many accolades, there has to be very high expectations from Special Ops. And Pandey nailed it literally. His association with the producer Shital Bhatia for Special Ops continues through above films.

Special Ops keeps you hooked to the screen episode after episode till the end. What a performance by everyone in the series. Kay Kay Menon shines as the lead star followed by others like Divya Dutta, Vinay Pathak, Karan Tacker, Mehar Vij, Sana Khan and so on. The series is available in many languages like Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu and Tamil. There are total 8 episodes in season1.

A very attractive and soothing cinematography adds glitter to the storyline of Special Ops.     Sudheer Palsane and Kavita Sachdeva Wani do a great job in capturing the beauty of the places like India, Turkey, Jordan and Ajerbaijan.

The plot starts with inquiry proceedings against Himmat Singh, played by Kay Kay Menon, of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), an Indian intelligence agency for foreign countries. During the course of inquiry, the series moves with a good pace while explaining the reasons for unspecified expenditures. Himmat Singh chases his own theory of finding the terrorist behind attack on Indian parliament in 2001. His quest forces his agents to be deployed for years in many countries looking for some clue. What happens through the episodes would be a treat to the eyes and mind, if you like this genre.

Rating: 4 out of 5
