Hasmukh Web Series Release Date
April 17, 2020
Hasmukh Netflix Director Nikhil Gonsalves and lead Actor Vir Das have created a masterpiece together. Hasmukh Crime thriller started streaming on Netflix from 17th April 2020. Hasmukh web series Netflix is of ten episodes and streams each episode for around 30 minutes.
The concept of Hasmukh is very close to reality. How there are bureaucrats and vested interests in every section of life.
Hasmukh has his own crisp story ranging from, comic to intriguing at best.
The idea of showing a completely different narrative of reality in the world of standups is brilliantly scripted. Hasmukh has got comedy, thriller, drama, and action making a cocktail of emotions. Hasmukh has touched many elements of different genres compiling humor and dark with niche narration.
The director also focuses on women empowerment in an episode where Hasmukh (Vir Das) performs on the stage after killing a criminal who bullies women. Giving a dark side to a comic set up has been very well taken care of, in the series. The humor is not much laudable as the dark side of the series is more highlighted and out rights the former.
Vir Das is a multi-talented Indian comedian, actor, and musician. Vir Das’ performance from naive to the thug, marks his stamp on the series. His initial role of being innocent struggler sync in well with his attitude.
Actors like Ravi Kishan and Ranvir Shorey did their part superbly, but their roles were supporting in nature.
The series is focused more on elevation and cinematography, rather on the narrative. The direction sometimes glitches off the track. Music is not great compared to other thriller series. One can expect more stories from the series and plots are incomplete in certain ways.
One cannot binge watch such a series as it lags in a few episodes and gives an abrupt end. Good star cast with least roles is always a con in web series, as there could have been better roles for Ranvir Shorey and Ravi Kishan but they seem under-utilized.
Nonetheless, a good stream. Do watch Hasmukh on Netflix.
