How is The Scam 1992 The Harshad Mehta Story Review?
1. Engaging Storyline
If you have read about Scam 1992 anywhere then you might be familiar with the story of series. The crime dr tells us the story of a guy who began from a small number and within very less interval of time he generated a big wealth which even we can’t imagine in our dreams.
The series not only shows us about the character of Mehta and the fault practices used by him to increase his wealth but it also presents a picture of India that was going through an instantaneous change.
Freedom was pushing the neck of the license Raj. Although the transformation was arriving in the society yet there were vast differences between past techniques and the new methods in terms of doing stuff. Mehta understood those holes properly and used them as his weapon against the system.
The web series follows the book ‘The Scam Who Won, Who Lost, Who Got Away’ written by economic reporters Sucheta Dalal and Debashish Basu. It begins with dalal played by Shreya Dhanwanthary who is being offered a bribe from a tired SBI officer who is telling him about a 500 crore scam.
Both the huge amount of money and worry on the forehead of Sharib Hashmi put Dalal and her companion Debashish on the trail of the tale that disclosed the largest scam that has ever happened in the history which covers the selfish link between the banks including national and overseas, commercial organizations, Government officers, and many other mighty people.
2. Scam-1992 web series Cast Performance
I praise the acting skills of actress Shreya Dhanwanthary, she has delivered a classy performance in the series. She has gracefully played the character of business journalist in the series. No doubt, on the other hand, Pratik Gandhi in the character of Harshad Mehta is just incredible.
For playing the character of stockbroker Mehta two qualities were required crucially which include smartness and crookedness. I thing Pratik has presented both the qualities in a mind-blowing way. I can say confidently that he has succeeded in showing Mehta’s image to the audience.
He has given a remarkable performance without committing major mistakes. Pratik knows that his big mistakes could have ruined the impact of the series on people. Not only it could have lowered its effect on viewers but also it might have degraded the ratings of the drama.
Apart from him Satish Kaushik, Sharib Hashmi, Anant Mahadevan, Nikhil Dwivedi, KK Raina, and Lalit Parimoo have also delivered their roles effectively. Their work also deserves equal appreciation.
3. Scam-1992 Web Series Script, Music And Direction Analysis
Definitely, a big credit goes to writers Sumit Purohit, Vaibhav Vishal, and Karan Vyas. They have made a gripping script that makes people stick to the screen until the ending episode of the drama. They have written several appealing dialogues like ‘Harshad ka raj ma, toh market majaa ma’.
Besides them, the director, Hansal Mehta has also done a great job. You will be impressed after watching his refined direction, he has taken shots of all 10 episodes of the drama in a flawless manner. His impeccable direction played a major role in the success of the series.
Music is the backbone of any show or movie. I think music directors have understood this fact very well. They have made the tones of the scenes effective and appealing. Therefore, We can say that the background score of the Scam -1992 web series episodes is up to the mark.
4. Scam 1992 IMDb and Time Of India Ratings
We generally watch any movie or series after checking its ratings on a trusted platform. Now, I’m feeling glad to tell you that Scam 1992 -The Harshad Mehta Story has performed superbly on the digital screen. It has gathered whopping 9.6 stars on the IMDb after receiving votes from more than 1550 users.
