REVIEW OF THE SERIES
The series provides the lustful scenario of the drug dealer towards the Bhumi. It includes an absurdly confusing narrative with no sense of timing and tone messed up. The executing of the narrative with cheesy cop planning sessions, training montage, etc. The series considered to be provided with the wrong idea of women empowerment which leads to its decline. The main character is shown as an ordinary girl who wants a better life. Aditi Pohankar’s performance as Bhumi is brave enough but even because she is being directed to act according to the script of the series not according to her character. In a male-dominated society, women are trying to establish their identity by indulging in an undercover mission to expose a drug lord named Sasya. The officer in the series selects her and indulges in undercover operation which enables her to discover her power of inducing the men and first of all the drug lord Sasya.
All this is depicted in this web series which eventually describes the inducing and appealing personality of a woman which helps to induce men.
