The stories of Disney plus Hotstar Quicks, which are told in small episodes, seem untouchable after watching the trailer. You should see the web series ‘Mukesh Jasoos’ this weekend. Mast series. Episodes of 10–12 minutes. You can watch them all for free without a subscription. Rahul Bagga and Paritosh Tripathi have great acting. Poonam Dhillon is in the avatar of Daru Wali’s aunt. Along with great writing and great direction. The supporting cast did a great job too.
The web series ‘Mukesh Jasoos’ is like a shocking revelation from this season. No publicity anywhere. Not a phone call from OTT’s PR agency. Free sandalwood has been left in Nandan to be worn this way. Thursday, after watching Salman Khan’s movie ‘Radhey: Your Most Wanted Bhai’, clicked on the first episode of the web series ‘Mukesh Jasoos’ to see some lightheartedness, then didn’t feel like leaving without continuously watching the seventh episode. During the binge watch, after a long time, a series was so entertaining.
The real star of ‘Mukesh Jasoos’ is the script. Four clever people have kept the texture so precise from the four corners that Sirhana and Paitana are all good. The casting is great too. Every artist looks like they are the same character. Arjun’s father cries for Mukesh by tearing up the bukkah or the assistant who brings coffee to the tea shop. Everyone has done 100% of their share. The progressive story, like Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s films, begins with the funeral of a corpse and goes from the antics of a botched LLB lawyer to a detective.
The web series ‘Mukesh Jasoos’ has two stars, Rahul Bagga and Paritosh Tripathi. Just like Parimal and Sukumar from ‘Chupke Chupke’. Rahul’s character is more challenging here as Mukesh’s challenges are both at home and outside. At home, his wife immerses herself in someone else for him. Everything must be set on the outside. Rahul Bagga has performed well here. He is the artist of Rajkummar Rao and Ayushman Khurana’s competition, the giants of Hindi cinema must watch this series or they will lose a great actor.
In the role of Mukesh’s friend, Paritosh Tripathi has also given his life in the series. His facial postures make the audience laugh. It is Paritosh’s character that helps turn Rahul Bagga into a Mukesh detective. Rukhi Malaviya’s efforts to become a social influencer are good. Anamika Shukla, who appeared in the seventh episode, also managed to leave her impact. It was a surprise to see the role of police inspector, Mukesh Chhabra, who turned from casting director to film director. Mukesh’s acting has also done well. Rajeshwari Sachdev is definitely an outsider in his character.
If the dialogues of ‘Mukesh Jasoos’, the best web series in story, screenplay, direction and acting, could have gone further than the web series ‘Panchayat’. There was a false philosophy of rural Indian life. Here’s the real face of Mumbai, alive with the breath of those who work in tall buildings. The web series ‘Mukesh Jasoos’, which tells this very lifelike story of slums, also reminds me of Sudhir and Vinod of ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’.
The series’ opening titles are well made. The cameraman should have shown the same creativity in the series. Editing is nimble, but the background music isn’t fresh. Technically, the movie could have been a bit better. But even in such a difficult time, putting a smile on your face is a big win.
