In thriller section I was totally enthralled by Rangbaaz and Rangbaaz Phirse series. These shows are like get the action going without stepping out. Let’s look at the plot and star cast of both the shows which are based on true incidents and personalities.

Rangbaaz :

·      This story is based on true person named Shri Prakash Shukla, whereas in series the name is aliased to Shiv Prakash Shukla played by Saqib Saleem. We all remember Saqib Saleem portraying the playful character in ‘Mere Dad ki Maruti’ but in this series you all can witness the dark side portrayed by him.

·      Story revolves around the character Shiv and starts with a flashback giving a glimpse how his first encounter with crime started and what was the reason behind it.

·      How step by step he enters into the political background and how each incident makes his image as a goon leader emerges is directed well by Bhav Dhulia.

·      Shiv character has shades of personal life too and how this gave a lead to police officers to take a nab on him is also actioned in proper way.

·      Supporting characters played by Tigmanshu Dhulia as Ram Shankar Tiwari (inspired by Hari Shankar Tiwari). Ranvir Shorey as Sidharth Pandey Aahana Kumra as Babita Sharma, Ravi Kishan as Chandra Bhan Singh have strong roles and have poured in their efforts to complete the crime plot picture well.

Rangbaaz Phirse

·      Rangabaaz Phirse, which was premiered on 20 December 2019.  is also based on a true life story of a gangster named Anandpal Singh who was active in state Rajasthan whose name is aliased in the series as Amar Pal Singh.

·      Lead role Amar Pal Singh is played by Jimmy Shergil who is known for playing many off beat roles and one has to praise for his efforts for sinking in the character so well, be it the mannerism or the slang he has done everything perfectly.

·      This season also starts with a cue of flashback that takes us to the time where Amar Pal Singh wins the college elections. Later how step by step he falls in the cracks of the politics and turns out to be huge name in the criminal land.

·      The story is about a man falling in to the criminal pit deeper each time he tries to raise from it and at last when he tries to settle the things the situation is not in his favour and he and his family suffers.

·      The other leading roles played by  Sharad KelkarMahima Makwana and Gul Panag, Sonam Arora have contributed excellently in the series.

Why to watch Rangbaaz & Rangbaaz Phirse:

·      Both series have 9 episodes each, so in total we have power packed 18 episodes of action thrill with a crime and politics as background.

·      Star cast of the series is quite strong and takes you along the journey of the gangsters.

·      In both the seasons of Rangbaaz you can also find the bold titles of each episode that takes the story forward such as Sabki Samadhi Banegi ( Everyone’s coffin will be made) , Bhiksha Shiksha & Diksha ( Donation Education Initiation).

·      Watching the series based on true events gives a goose bumps as sometimes it does get to the extreme.

·      Both the seasons are independent are not related so you can pick any one of them first as per your choice and enjoy the later another day.
