Pankaj Tripathi, a well-known and most wanted web series actor at present. He entered the market in 2018, with his first Debut Sacred Games. He is well known for his sensible comic and character, so far in Bollywood. From the past one year, he has picked up all crime-comic series which involves mystery and other serious political issues.
Beneath, are his top 3 web series that rocked the web series saga:
If you watch closely, Mirzapur is an amalgamation of two-three other movies like Gangs of Wassepur, Shaheb bibi and Ganster and few other movies where the main motive is to shed blood and showcase the crime rate in India. The series revolves around two brothers who tries to take over the power in their hands in the battleground of UP. They are struck with the mafias and the political parties to conquer their own quest of freedom and being a leader. The character of Pankaj Tripathi aka Kaalin bhaiya, made loud sounds in web series market. His character was very well written and he did justice to the same. He is portrayed as a strong bold person throughout the web series who has the overall power in the gun supply and mafia activities. He is shown as the father of the criminal Munna, whose ultimate aim is to take over the power of Mirzapur after the death of his father. He tries to kill his father but fails in the attempt. The series indulged in controversies for showcasing the law scenario and crime rate of UP. The UP Government officials refused to accept the facts about the state as shown in Mirzapur.
Criminal Justice is based on a simple plot which justifies its title very well. The series revolves around a criminal court case where a cab driver Adhitya (Vikrant Messy) spends a night with the female passenger with a huge influence of drugs on his body and mind. He spends the night with her but doesn’t remember a single scenario of the night. On waking up next morning, he finds her dead and stabbed all over. The case is first taken up by advocate Madhav Mishra (Pankaj Tripathi) who tries to supress the crime and try to prove Adhitya innocent in front of the court. He fails pathetically due to the seriousness of the crime and therefore, advocate Mandira takes the case in her charge without asking any case fees from Adhitya. She is sure about his innocence. The entire series looks like a plot of Sherlock Holmes who tries to solve a mystery, already knowing about the miseries of the victim. At last the victim is mercied upon and left without any further investigation. The audience is once again amused by the dry humour of Pankaj Tripathi.
One of the most watched show so far in the Indian web series market. The first glimpse of the show mesmerized the audience who liked to dive deep into the mystery and crime resolving plots. It is based out of ‘Mumbai- Meri Jaan’, where a loyal police officer (Saif Ali Khan) is given open challenge to save the city from the terror. He tries everything to save the city but fails due to corrupt officials and no support from the police department. He later gets some assistance from Anjali Mathur (Radhika Apte). The main criminal (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) kills himself after the warning which makes it difficult to know the truth behind the crime controversy, about to happen in Mumbai in next 25 days. It is one such series which involves mystery and crime but not much blood, which makes it user friendly for the viewers who like mild crime.
