After the success of Hostages and Criminal Justice, Hotstar came up with their new thriller series – Special Ops. The series is directed by Neeraj Pandey. Starring KK Menon, Karan Tacker, Vinay Pathak, Parmeet Sethi, Saiyami Kher, Sana Khan, Meher Vij and many more brilliant faces in the cast. The series is a story of a R&AW officer Himmat Singh played by KK Menon.
Neeraj Pandey has always been excellent in presenting the world of spies and terrorists. This time the story takes us into the life of Himmat Singh, a R&AW officer who believes that there were 6 terrorists involved during the parliament attack of 2001. While the whole world believes that there were 5. Special Ops is based on the search of that 6th terrorist who is chased by Himmat Singh for the past 19 years.
The 8-episode series takes us to various destinations like Istanbul, Dubai, Kashmir, Baku, Jordan and Pakistan. Himmat Singh has placed Indian agents to collect confidential information. The series tells us about the lives of these agents and the efforts they make to protect our country.
The placing of these agents and expenses to gather information through these agents costs large amount of money. Himmat Singh is also alleged of spending such large funds of secret services with no proper recordings.
Special Ops is based on true events that happened in the country. The series is very well written and directed. One of the best thriller I’ve watched recently. KK Menon has performed brilliantly in the series and has reached the depth of the character.
A special shout-out to Karan Tacker who has won several hearts by his mind blowing performance and his character Farooq Ali in the series has garnered lots of love among the viewers.
As we all have been quarantined, this is the best time to binge Special Ops and enjoy the thrill.
