Review: 26 November 2011… It was a night for Mumbai, for Maharashtra, for India and for the world that saw humanity being riddled with bullets on television, rags of fraternity in bomb blasts and the integrity of the country. Seeing hundreds of innocent people saying goodbye to their lives at the hands of terrorists. That night and for nearly 60 hours after that, the world watched how a modest country like Pakistan, in the name of hating India, attacked an important city like Mumbai with its army and terrorists, and such an obscene dance of savagery. Seeing this, even stone hearted people cried after melting. Mumbai Diaries 26/11, the web series directed by Nikkhil Advani and Nikhil Gonsalves, brings to you a bloody tale born out of this terror attack, in which small pleasures bloom at the foot of a mountain of sorrows. It will be counted as the best written and directed web series of this year. If you leave some places, then this web series is very similar to real life.

New writers like Yash Chhetija, Anoushka Mehrotra and Nikkhil Advani’s old teammates Nikhil Gonsalves and Sanyukta Chawla Shaikh have combined to take the premise of the original story some changes. The information about what happened in the terrorist attack inside Cama Hospital was never fully revealed, but in this web series, aspects like the way the hospital works, the bottlenecks, lack of staff and equipment were shown very well. Is. Since the web series is made on those working in the hospital, the terrorist attack does not serve to swallow the story but to give direction. The writers’ circle should be thanked for writing a balanced screen play.
Seeing the way Mohit Raina has acted in the role of Dr. Kaushik Oberoi, it seems that he needs a good role and a good director. Throughout the series, he has played the role of a dutiful doctor who does not depend on protocol to treat. His inability to save the ATS Chief does not stop him from treating the captured terrorist while other ATS officers turn against him for his actions, gunshots are fired at him and the media tries to make him a villain. Gets applied. Shreya Dhanwantri is once again in the role of a stormy journalist and when she sees the consequences of her reporting for the first time, the self-inflicted expressions on her face give new heights to her character.

When Tina Desai (wife of Dr Kaushik and guest relations manager of the hotel) tries not to risk her life to rescue the guests trapped in the hotel, the depression of her broken relationship with her husband and untimely abortion is heavy in her mind. Is. What a great performance by Sandesh Kulkarni in the role of ACP Mahesh Tawde. Special care has been taken of a very fine thing in this series. No personal story of any policeman has been shown, only the focus has been kept on the relationship between doctors and hospital staff.
Its background music also has a big hand in the success of the web series. The music is by Ashutosh Pathak who is one of the most successful musicians in the independent music industry. Ashutosh is also the brain behind Javed Jaffrey’s very popular song ‘Mumbhai’. Cinematographer Kaushal Shah, who suddenly came into the limelight with the cinematography of Netflix’s series Jamtara, has operated the camera efficiently. His camera has been very effective in emotional scenes. Director Milap Zaveri’s brother Mahir Zaveri has taken over the command of editing. The master is really expert. Not a single moment is boring. Events are not dragged on for long. The back story of none of the characters has been told enough to distract attention from the original story of the medical drama. Mumbai Diaries win is Nikkhil Advani’s. of authors. Actors and Kavish Sinha. Kavish has done the casting. There is not a single actor who doesn’t fit except Pushkar who is playing the role of ward boy. The work of every department in this web series is worth watching. It should be seen.
