Indian Police Force Web Series Review: The narrative of INDIAN POLICE FORCE unfolds as law enforcement officers pursue a terrorist. During the commemoration of Delhi Police Raising Day, the National Capital is shaken by a sequence of explosions.
Kabir Malik (Sidharth Malhotra), Vikram Bakshi (Vivek Oberoi), Rana (Nikitin Dheer), and additional members of the Special Police Unit of Delhi Police are entrusted with the investigation. They are joined by Tara Shetty (Shilpa Shetty Kundra), the Chief of Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).
The mastermind they are in pursuit of is none other than Zarar, also known as Haider (Mayyank Taandon). He resides as a paying guest in the residence of Saeed (Lalit Parimoo), a mechanic who, unbeknownst to his family, is involved in terrorist activities. Saeed’s mother and daughter, Nafeesa (Vaidehi Parshurami), are completely unaware of their involvement in sinister activities.
Nafeesa, under the impression that Zarar is a perfume seller, develops romantic feelings for him. Meanwhile, Zarar is plotting his next operation and organizing the extraction of handlers from Delhi. Upon one of the handlers making a call home, Kabir’s team manages to trace their location and stages an assault on the safe house.
All the handlers meet their demise, except one who manages to escape, while Zarar eludes capture. Concurrently, Kabir’s team mourns the loss of a valiant police officer, and Kabir is subsequently reassigned.
In the meantime, Zarar arrives in Jaipur to execute another round of terror attacks. The unfolding events that ensue constitute the remainder of the series.
Web Series Review: Indian Police Force
The review crafted by Sandeep Saket and Anusha Nandkumar is thoroughly researched. Their screenplay, too, proves to be engaging, with certain scenes standing out, particularly those featuring action. The dialogues, penned by Sandeep Saket, Anusha Nandkumar, Ayush Trivedi, Vidhi Ghodgaonkar, and Sanchit Bedre, are generally standard, but some of them exhibit a sharp and noteworthy quality.
The web series has been directed by Rohit Shetty and Sushwanth Prakash. The directors have exerted considerable effort to elevate both the mass appeal and the overall grandeur of the show. Every location is presented on a grand scale, reminiscent of a cinematic experience on the big screen.
They are here to ensure that the audience stays captivated and invested in the gripping cat-and-mouse chase unfolding between law enforcement and the formidable terrorist across multiple cities.
Numerous scenes leave a lasting impression, including Vikram’s daring handling of a live bomb, the tumultuous events at Firoza Nagar, Jaideep Bansal (Mukesh Rishi) advising Kabir and Vikram to bend the rules, the poignant demise of a police officer, and the intense confrontation between the police and Goldie Rodrigues (Sunil Rodrigues) and his men in Goa. The final two episodes particularly shine as the best in the series.
On the downside, the series fails to introduce anything novel that hasn’t been witnessed in previous Rohit Shetty projects. There are no surprising twists, cameo appearances from characters in the cop universe, or unique elements to distinguish it.
The action sequences evoke a sense of déjà vu, providing a feeling of having seen it all before. Additionally, the main characters lack distinctly entertaining traits.
Sidharth Malhotra convincingly portrays the role of an action hero, while Vivek Oberoi looks striking and delivers a commendable performance, even though his screen time is limited. Shilpa Shetty Kundra, despite having less screen time, compensates with her impressive acts and stunts.
Mayyank Taandon is adequate in his role as the antagonist. Vaidehi Parshurami emerges as the standout performer of the show, excelling in her well-written character. Shruti Panwar (Unaiza) leaves a lasting impression. Mukesh Rishi, Niktin Dheer, Lalit Parimoo, Rituraj Singh (Rafeeq), Karanvir Malhotra (Sikku), Rakshit Wahi (Moin), and Purnendu Bhattacharya (Home Minister) provide capable support. Isha Talwar (Rashmi) delivers a lovely performance in her cameo.
Shweta Tiwari (Shruti) impresses in a breakdown scene but fades into the background afterward. Mrinal Kulkarni (Ruksana; Kabir’s mother) delivers a strictly okay performance. Mohak Meet (Shadab), Sunil Rodrigues, Akashdeep Sabir (Mudassar; Zarar’s father), Deepak Qazir (Khan Sahab), and Harsh Sharma (Salamat) are fair in their small roles. Sharad Kelkar (Jagtap) fittingly portrays his character.
The film also features three songs, with the ‘IPF Theme’ standing out as particularly catchy. However, ‘Bairiya Re’ and ‘Koi Aayat’ are less memorable, although they are well-shot by Sneha Shetty Kohli. Amar Mohile’s background score makes an effort to heighten tension and mass appeal.
Girish Kant and Raza Hussain Mehta’s cinematography is spectacular, with aerial shots adding a nice touch. Swapnil Bhalerao and Madhur Madhavan’s production design is fitting, and Navin Shetty, Mehek Navin Shetty, and Laxman Gollar’s costumes are both realistic and appealing. Sunil Rodrigues’ action sequences and Rohit Shetty’s action design are notable for their lack of gore and blood. The VFX by NY VFXWaala is average, and Bunty Nagi’s editing maintains a brisk pace.
In conclusion, INDIAN POLICE FORCE bears the trademark Rohit Shetty style throughout. With its abundance of action and association with Rohit Shetty, the film is likely to attract a substantial viewership
