Web Series REVIEW: ‘Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke’ means another unsuccessful work of director Srijit Mukherjee
Web Series REVIEW ‘Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke’: After watching the web series ‘Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke’, it seems that what they want to prove by converting a one-and-a-half-hour film into an 8-episode long series of about 30-30 minutes? This series has been drawn to such an extent that even if the audience returns after having tea and snacks in between and chatting, they will not miss anything.

Director: Srijit Mukherjee

Web Series REVIEW ‘Jaanbaaz Hindustan Ke‘: Ranbir Kapoor’s film was supposed to be a ‘Rockstar’, but director Imtiaz Ali’s focus was on how to give maximum screen time to the talentless heroine Nargis Fakhri. Can The pain is not that all efforts were made to keep the camera on Nargis, but that Imtiaz is a perfectionist type of director, how did he make this mistake.
Well, on the same lines, it is not expected from the director Srijit Mukherjee that he should focus so much on the heroine that he should build the entire web series around her. After watching the web series ‘Jambaz Hindustan Ke’ released on Zee5 on the patriotic day of Republic Day, it seems that what do you want to prove by converting a one-and-a-half hour film into an 8-episode long series of about 30-30 minutes? This series has been drawn to such an extent that even if the audience returns after having tea and snacks in between and chatting, they will not miss anything. Jambaaz is a poor web series about India. G5 owners should think before making such a series.
Writers Neeraj Udhwani (Inside Edge) and Ashish P Verma (Sanak, Tehran) were probably given the brief to show Regina Cassandra as a tough policewoman, and write a story around her. Made no attempt to stop. In a fun way, he kept taking the story to Shillong, Manipur, Delhi, Jaipur, and Kerala. There has been no sensitivity toward the timeline anywhere in this entire episode. One day the media of the whole state calls Regina a “lioness” and then after some time she keeps on firing bullets in Kerala.
Both the writer and the director have forgotten the time that passed between these two incidents. Sumit Vyas has been made a terrorist of ISIS, who is an amazingly connected person, but still runs like an ordinary criminal and suddenly appears in any city. Despite being the head of Bangladesh’s ISIS, he has a wonderful grip on India, yet he does not know the basic methods of running away from the police. Gayatri Shankar, the heroine of Tamil and Malayalam films, keeps trying to be mysterious without talking, and in the end, she is caught like a two-penny spoon of a goon. Mita Vashishtha does not know how to smile and she does not smile either but does not bring a single thing in her character by which her character can be remembered.
The name of the story is just a joke. A terrorist organization smuggles RDX near Shillong. This RDX has to reach every corner of the country and then through drones, it has to be used in explosions at different places. A CM in a meeting and some MLAs in an assembly are also killed in this way. Terrorists plan to blow up the Home Minister in this way. In such a situation, National Investigation Agency Chief Mahira Rizvi (Mita Vashisht) and Kavya Iyer (Regina) together uncover this whole conspiracy and like any film, everything turns out well here.
Why were 8 episodes made for a one-line story? Was the angle involving Kavya’s personal life necessary? Probably not. Why should Kavya have a habit of disobeying orders? Why was it necessary to have a setback in his career? Why should he have thrown the loop line after the jerk? Everything is being made according to convenience and there is no issue with anyone’s personal life except Regina. One or two scenes of Sumeet Vyas and Gayatri and one scene of Meeta Vashisht have been kept so that they get some relief from Regina’s overdose.
Jaambaz Hindustan Ke is another failed attempt by Zee5. To redeem patriotism, now something new will have to be done, this story of dealing with terrorists’ plans to stop terror attacks, a low-budget way to do something bigger than shoddy technology….all this should be stopped. You can avoid watching this series. You have seen many such series.
