Why 'Farzi' on Amazon Prime Should Be Your Next Binge-Watch | Review by Sunil Chandurkar

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

After the success of movies like Pushpa and KGF, heroes with gray shades have become increasingly popular among audiences. 'Farzi' follows this trend and presents a similar character, who, despite being flawed, is still able to win the viewers' hearts. 'Farzi,' a thrilling Hindi crime series on Amazon Prime, is no exception to this trend. Created and directed by the talented duo, Raj & DK, who also made 'The Family Man,' the show boasts a remarkable cast that includes Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, Kay Kay Menon, Raashi Khanna, and the scene-stealing Bhuvan Arora.

What sets 'Farzi' apart is the exceptional work of the supporting cast, which includes Amol Palekar, Chittaranjan Giri, Zakir Hussain, and Regina Cassandra. The actors add depth and dimension to the show, complementing the lead actors' standout performances. Kapoor delivers a commendable performance in his first-ever web series, establishing himself as one of the most talented actors of his generation. Sethupathi's outstanding portrayal of his character has won me over, despite not being a great fan of his before. Meanwhile, Kay Kay Menon, one of my favourite actors, gives his best performance yet again. Bhuvan Arora, who plays Firoz, is a pleasant surprise and could see his career skyrocket.

The storyline revolves around a crime involving counterfeit notes, and Raj & DK's attention to detail is commendable, to the point where one could almost think of starting a business of printing fake notes (lol). Despite lengthy episodes, the show's exceptional storyline, dialogues, great direction, expertly crafted screenplay, apt music by Sachin Jigar & Tanishk Bagchi and background score by Ketan Sodha make 'Farzi' a must-watch engaging crime thriller. Season 1 concludes on a high note, generating anticipation for Season 2.

In conclusion, 'Farzi' is an excellent Hindi crime series that lives up to the hype. It is a superb example of what a top-notch thriller should be, with an excellent cast, well-crafted storyline, and direction that keeps you engaged throughout. If you're looking for a must-watch series on Amazon Prime, 'Farzi' is an excellent choice that comes highly recommended.
