With some decent buzz, the Abhay Deol starrer web series, 1962 The War On The Hills finally started streaming. It is based on the historical events of the early sixties, however, the reviews seemed to be mixed with a greater number of critics not very pleased with the show. One of the critics went on to claim that little effort was put forth for the research work, which is otherwise required for such genre movies. They alleged that the filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar failed to present the very core idea of filmmaking with this show.
They claim that the war that remains the most narrating story among the different war stories in the Indian history, the filmmaker seemed amateur in his direction and homework skills. The actors of the film include Abhay Deol, Mahie Gill, Sumeet Vyas, Anup Soni, and the Sairat fame actor Akash Thosar. While the film was based on the 1962 Sino-Indian war. The critics claimed that the series, however, seemed lagging behind in every department of filmmaking including direction, writing and performances.
It is a story that talks about the Indian soldiers who seemed to have fought the war one sided against China, while there is no proper gear when it comes to Ladakh winter. It is a ten episodes based web series and the makers have failed to impress as they got distracted by other things rather than presenting the story straight to the audience.
