This Irrfan Khan starrer explores the journey of investigation of the murders where contrasting perspectives make it difficult to reach conclusions. It brings light to the fact that the narrow approach sometimes colludes with the facts and can lead to different conclusions. The movie received critical acclamation. Irrfan Khan, Tabu, and Kanoka Sen Sharma delivered this outstanding performance! It deserves appreciation for the sensitivity of the story dealt the narrative with.
4. Scoop (2023)
Scoop is a 6 part thriller which is based on the biography of journalist Jigna Vora who was accused of the murder of another reporter Jyotirmoy Dey. The series explores the grit and ambition of passionate journalists. And the cost that they have to pay for their passion. Karishma Tanna as Jagruti Pathak and Muhammad Zeeshan as Imran Siddique are the leads who gave powerful performances. With Prosenjit Chatterjee as Jaidep Sen, the story found its perfect antagonist. Also, the friendship and chemistry between the leads are good. It provides a breath of fresh air amid gruesome events unfolding on screen. The best thing about the series is that it refrains from a preachy narrative.
5. Guns and Gulaabs (2023)
Last but definitely not the least, Guns ad Gulaabs -one of the best pieces of content to come out this year! In this 90s fictional world of Gulabganj, the idiosyncratic gangsters make unconventional choices that lead to unprecedented events. The subtle yet quirky humor of the series is an intelligent move on the part of the makers. That is why the audience has been enjoying it so much. Nevertheless, good writing is never enough if the actors fail to live up to their roles, and boy oh boy! Don’t we have the perfect lineup that just engraved the characters into our hearts and minds forever? Rajkummar Rao as Panna Tipu, Dulquer Salmaan as Arjun, and Adarsh Gaurav as Chhota Ganchi serve as the perfect leads of the series.
