If you are Indian, don't bother to watch!
7 January 2018 | by sssachin26See all my reviews

I was skeptical right from the beginning about Russel Peters (Of all the Indians out there) being the protagonist. Yet somehow I managed to give him the benefit of the doubt. But in the end, it turned out to be the exact disaster I was thinking about. I can't help but shout out that Russel Peters is the worst of all the Indian stereotypes out there. I mean, his standups are funny but that's what it is limited to - Standups. Apart from that, his portrayal of an Indian guy is just cringe-worthy. When the title advertises about the "Indian detective", you expect an Indian scenario. If you watch Narcos, you know everything is about Colombia & most of the part would be Spanish. Yet somehow, in case of this show, no one in Mumbai speaks Marathi, even the Police station! The Hindi accent is just the worst & infuriating! Language is the first & the most important thing about a foreign drama. If you get that right, half the work in done. But no, no efforts in this one. Even the filming was done is South Africa? Like, really? So, to finish off, your entire time will be spent criticizing the show rather than understanding it. And if you are forced to dislike a show, you know its not worth giving a shot!
