Content the fulcrum
1 August 2018 | by sanketshanwareSee all my reviews

A brilliant attempt at discreetly unraveling five distinct characters and then gradually converging them at one point, that's Hankaar in a sentence.

Supremely dramatic when it comes to writing. It's as if from the sixth episode it escalates uncontrollably, flavored with moments to heighten the drama it seems.

Also, reading the synopsis of each episode one gets an idea of what fate the characters might come across, and it just reduces a bit of surprise element then, but that's where you are tricked because not everytime does something like this happen and when you get deceived you would be intrigued!. Although the last four episodes -the final lap- seem to grip the viewer much more strongly because of so much happening all the time. The core of the series is stacked up in that final lap -all the revelations, crisis, dramatic moments- Iike any webseries. This imbalanced spread of the series is quite interesting but equally risky. If the start would have been on a high note then the audience would've been hooked already rather than building it up. Hopefully, season 2 can start with a bang...

Post production work has been heavily jeopardized and it reduces the fun of watching the series. Poor sound mixing and dubbing clubbed with excess of background music just spoils some moments that could've had a greater impact. There's no link and flow to the music, it should bind the series together, but on the contrary just becomes disturbing after a point of time.

The lead character Z is shown very judiciously and we get to know about him from others, and that's an interesting way to know a character. It has set up things very nicely to know him all the more in the next season.

Overall, the content is the backbone of this series it is something new in the market, unseen and unheard of before on any social media or television platform in our country.

Watch it for the content, the way it's intelligently crafted and shown to us.
