Netflix Indian original series, Delhi Crime has simply turned out to be a perfect combination of fine acting, direction and scripting as per the review reports. The story starts on December 2012, cold Delhi winter, one girl with a friend, six men, and a moving bus. The initial scene is enough to turn the minds to the brutal and barbaric gang-rape incident of 2012 that shook the entire country. Knowing of this heinous crime, the general mass was furious and stepping out in complete anger, pain, and frustration. Right from street shows to public protest, almost everything has been rightly depicted in the series.
Staging the entire event, Netflix’s Indian Original Delhi Crime has set a perfect stage to the entire incident from the other side of the table. Dedicated four years of extensive research of the director Richie Mehta has perfectly reflected into putting forth this truly gripping drama reminding the public of the 72 hours when the Delhi Police hunted the six criminal men who gang-raped the 23-year-old girl. The seven-part series starts with a sequence of usual Delhi winter morning scenes along with the general routine of the police force.
Putting up each day of the investigation in a separate episode, Mehta has presented quite an experience of this brutal incident through narration from different characters. This isn’t an easy binge to watch but, with definitely keep you glued to the screen until you finish the entire story.
The lead role of DCP Vartika Chaturvedi is played by Shefali Shah who is inspired by Chhaya Sharma, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) in south Delhi in 2012. Leading a team of over 100 policemen, she succeeds in putting all the six culprits behind the bars. Shah has done a great job with her role in Delhi Crime and is shown perfectly balancing her real and work life emotions. Rajesh Tailang plays the role of Bhupendra, an experienced inspector with a high-level understanding of criminal cases.
The other major binding edges of Vartika are Rasika and Rajesh without whom the story of Delhi Crime couldn’t have been complete. Even though the series has magnetized the audiences, there are certain unrealistic happenings like smooth investigation process conducted under various government departments with complete cooperation. This is simply not working in an Indian scenario.
Apart from this, the series, Delhi Crime is definitely a thumbs up to watch and can definitely be characterized under a combination of fine acting, direction and scripting.
