Cast : Elli Avram , Manav Kaul , Viraf Patel , Sumeet Vyas
Created and Produced By Ekta Kapoor
The web series created and produced by Ekta Kapoor under Balaji Telefilms is based on a true story that around the incident that took place with Indian Naval Command Officer, Kawas Nanavati who was accused for the murder charges of Prem Ahuja. The story dates back to 1959 when Kawas Nanavati returns from his duty and discovers his wife, Slyvia Nanavati’s affair with friend Prem Ahuja. The cast includes Manav Kaul, Elli Avram, Sumeet Vyas, Viraf Patel, and Makrand Deshpande. Proper justice is given to the roles of Ram Jethmalani and Chandu Trivedi in the series by Sumeet Vyas and Makrand Deshpande respectively. The interaction scenes between Ram Jethmalani and Chandu Trivedi adds a light humor in the series which thereby helps to lift up the scenes and the series in whole. Initially Elli Avram didn’t get to share much screen but has managed to impress by her performance and seems to be a promising yet deserving actor. The movie is honest in its approach as they don’t modify the names of the characters and hence it’s a great step towards informative cinema. The story isn’t fresh as there is already a movie with the same plot starring Akshay Kumar and Illeana D’Cruz as the lead, the movie titled ‘Rustom’. Besides the fact that the plot is similar, series leaves no stones unturned to give a refreshing feel towards the plot. The performance was above average of the entire cast. As far as first three episodes are concerned, the series is quite interesting and it tends to have a hold on the viewers. We were left in suspense and hopefully the series does great till the climax.
