Farzi watchseries. Raj & DK have been hitting it out of the park with their content for a while now. I was introduced to them a little later with The Family Man series in 2019 and have watched a good amount of their content since. The duo is back now with their new series, Farzi. This series is a crime thriller dealing with counterfeit money and some relatable characters with grounded motives, problems, and grey shades.Farzi is majorly about Sunny, an artist, whose predicaments and financial issues lead him into the world of crime, specifically by counterfeiting money and rising through the underworld through this. The series also follows Michael, an investigative officer, along with Megha, ex-RBI officer, who are on a mission to catch the creator of these counterfeit notes and clean the system. How Sunny meets Michael's nemsis of Mansoor, a major underworld king pin, and gets involved in a larger mess makes up this season.The series has an interesting premise for sure with the crime thriller set-up, but what makes us love Farzi, much like other Raj & DK works is the groundedness of the characters. They have real problems and characteristics. Michael is dealing with divorce and the emotions of losing custody of his son. Megha is done with being seen as a boring loner, working the boring RBI job. Sunny lost his parents at a young age and was taken care of by his grandfather, who is struggling financially for his press and also falling ill with age.The standards have been set high for cinematography. Prime did not skimp on the movie and have funded it properly, and Raj/DK made good use of the provided money. The series has great visuals along with the color grading setting a dark tone which works aptly with the crime thriller genre. A gritty setting is used which works well for the story.The acting is top notch in the series. The best talent has been brought in through Vijay Sethupathi who plays a Tamilian, and his broken Hindi is pleasant to hear along with his dark, dry humour working in dull moments. Shahid Kapoor does well, these dark roles really work for him, although some scenes he looks rather blank. Bhuvan Arora stood out amongst the new talent as Firoz, he is quite a fun side kick. Kay Kay Menon kills it in the role of a Mafia king pin, while Rashi Khanna explores a new side of her self as Megha and delivers well.As of this initial season, the one issue which irked me with the series was that some parts of the episodes felt lengthy and full. Though the screenplay was good the episodes may have benefited from being 40 min long instead of the hour long episodes we got. There were multiple parts where I was checking how much longer was left. Maybe a schedule release with more gaps between episodes could have benefited in this sense as well.Overall, a great first season which is bringing us into the world of Farzi. This is a solid crime thriller which is not only a must watch for Raj & DK fans, but also fans of crime/thriller genre.7.5/10.
Farzi is a crime drama thriller show directed by krishna dk and raj nidimoru.Shahid kapoor as sunny is outstanding. He portrays a calm yet very ambitious character superbly. Also, shahid possesses a certain mumbai swag in him which he channelizes exceptionally. Vijay sethupathi plays michael and plays it effortlessly. He is nonchalant, careless, but extremely dedicated and workaholic. Vijay's comic timing is very laidback yet effective. Bhuvan arora as firoz shines through the screens. His chemistry with shahid will be remebered for years to come. Both have worked it out so beautifully. Kay kay menon, on the other hand, is a comic ruthless gangster. Whenever kay kay and shahid come together on screen, its fireworks. Ask vishal bharadwaj about haider if you doubt it. Rashi khanna was good, a polite yet dedicated RBI officer. Amol palekar as nanu will surely bring a wide smile on your face as he has done over the long years. The performances are extremely competetive.The writing in this series is of gold standard. The characters that the makers have etched out is outstanding. You see the characters of sunny and firoz, you feel for them from the first episode itself. Beaten by the system, they want to make a cut by hook or by crook. Michael has personal problems with his wife, you see that he has failed as a husband and father but still you feel for him because of the performance and also due to the context of it. The chemistry between michael and pawan gahlot works big time. They have got the most hilarious and meme worthy dialogues between them. Zakir hussain has played the minister wonderfully.The commentary this series makes about the system and its corruption, red tapism is very relevant and contemporary. The divisions of class, economic strata divide, how it gives context to people's actions is written beautifully. The screenwriting is a masterclass in itself. For instance, during a chase, the police go back and forth between their car and the perperators in the mumbai traffic. The way the makers have made space for humour in the direst of situations is outstanding. The comedy in general is terrific, this makes farzi a raj and dk show. Also, the detailing and research that has gone behind the notes and currency, its making techniques, the technicalities is marvellous.The music is astounding as well. The score consists of the generic beats, the synth portions, and it elevates the series further. The music is also pretty good. 'Paisa hai toh', 'fark nai padta', 'sab farzi' are peppy numbers while 'aasmaan' is such a soulful indie vibe. You will like the music for sure. The cinematography is great. There are no speciifc raj and dk long shots but the way the camera angles have been handled gives the premiumness to the show.The dialogues in this show is just hilarious and outstanding. The scenes between michael and pawan have been largely elevated due to the dialogues.If we are to say negatives, then i wish the love story between sunny and megha would have been handled better. I mean every character and their chemistry got a closure barring that aspect. So yeah, this is one outstanding show. I rate it 9.5.
