What’s the story: No countryman can forget the date of 26 November 2008. This is the same date when some terrorists shook Mumbai. This incident has also been shown differently in some films. At the same time, this time in ‘Mumbai Diaries’ it has been shown from the point of view of doctors. How was the condition of the doctors of Mumbai after this incident, while the number of patients was not stopping, on the other hand their own problems were also continuing.
How is the acting and direction: In ‘Mumbai Diaries 26/11’, Mohit Raina, Konkona Sen Sharma, Mrinmayi Deshpande, Natasha Bhardwaj, Satyajit Dubey, Prakash Belawadi, Shreya Dhanwantri, among others, have been seen in important roles. While Mohit Raina has given a tremendous performance in the role of a doctor, the other cast has also done justice to their characters. However, the direction of Nikkhil Advani and Nikhil Gonsalves is a bit light. There are many scenes in the series which could have been improved as a director.
What’s special: There are many things in ‘Mumbai Diaries 26/11’ which make it very special, like – what if the medical equipments run out…, need for police investigation during emergency…, whether to save a bad person Wrong…etc. Along with this, the competition of blind breaking coverage of the media in the web series has also been tightened, which can also cause damage on a large scale. While many minor issues have been carefully taken care of, the length of the series seems to break its momentum at times. Some scenes seem incomplete, where you wonder what and what was needed after this.
View or not: ‘Mumbai Diaries 26/11’ has 8 episodes of about 35-40 minutes. The theme on which and in the manner in which this web series has been shown, in such a situation, it is definitely worth watching. It would not be wrong to say that after watching this series, the attitude of seeing doctors will definitely change.
