Hansal Mehta brings to life the story of a common man – 'Harshad Mehta' from rags to riches in the financial market of Bombay. His methods may be atypical and conceived wrong in the books of law, his vision however, still stands tall after 3 decades.
The series hits the right chords in every aspect it touches, right from the subject to the execution.
In terms of acting, Pratik Gandhi nails it to the tee as Harshad Mehta, this series will surely add another feather to his contributions in Gujarati cinema. When 'Harshad' is on his peak, you feel like celebrating with him, and when 'Harshad' is on his low, your heart goes out to him- such is the connect that Pratik brings to the screen.
On the other hand, we have the fierce Shreya – who as Sucheta Dalal is equally compelling as the path breaking journalist.
Rest of the cast plays their part effectively to make it appear a great ensemble.
The frames of Bombay relive one's memories of the 90s. To top it off, each episode is loaded with inspirational and power packed dialogues, making room for the next episode.
There are hardly any flaws in this web series other than the Bears who looked like ignored from post the half way mark.
Viewership: A (Language)
Overall, with a powerful factual story from Harshad Mehta's side, this one's a winner and easily one of the top web series India has produced !
