Web Series Review: Gangstars

I saw the AD for this Web Series on a Telugu Channel. Yes, it’s the FIRST Web Series released in Amazon Prime for Telugu Language. It’s dubbed in hindi and  tamil as well, but the actors and the nativity is all Telugu. Nandini Reddy, Ala Modalaindi fame is the creative head and has done the Story- Screenplay while Ajay Bhuyan has directed it.

The Web Series is done by Early Monsoon Tales ( which is a Web Division of  Vyjayanthi Movies) and Silly Monks  Entertainment. Starring popular telugu actors Jagapathi Babu and Navdeep, it also stars Shweta Basu Prasad and introduces Apoorva Arora. There’s a plethora of supporting actors, the main one being Raghu Ramakrishna. The same guy from Arjun Reddy running a sad clinic.

There are various plots in the web series –  A Gangster who is mistakenly told he has cancer,  A couple who breakup and then realize how much they love each other, how success and stardom turn people blind. This is like eating a full plate meals at the best andhra restaurant in the World.

The drama in front of the viewer’s eyes keeps on unfolding and thread by thread the plots keep getting solved. Tbere is no main plot as such, it’s like a bunch of short stories, exceptionally well done. What I would havel loved is the main thread, and the branching of sub plots from that.  The story moves from sentiment, to love, to revenge.  Subtle  things like twitter craze, aversion towards gentral nuetral people have been briefly touched.

Since lot of people associated with it come from film Industry, quite lot of web screen was taken in showing how Internals of the  Industry work.  One of the  things I will remember for a long long time is It’s all a matter of perception.  That ‘s shown in various situations across the web series.

Every actor did an exceptionally well job , especially  Sivaji in the last two episodes. Heriones looked pretty and did what was expected out of them.

Must Watch.

Rating : 10/10 . Catch it here.

Have a good day and keep rocking!
