DELHI CRIME (Web-Series / Netflix) - Emphasizing more on the investigations and Police personnel involved, this is an engaging watch with the only limitation of a one sided perspective. (Review by Bobby Sing)

Delhi Crime is a web-series revolving around the aftermath of the horrifying gang rape case of December 2012 that shook the entire country, resulting in an unprecedented public as well as political revolt beginning from New Delhi. However here the proceedings are more about the investigations and incidents post the heinous crime, depicted with a one-sided perspective of the police that actually works for most of its time, if you are not expecting or interested in watching something else about the crime itself.
Created, written and directed by Richie Mehta, it focuses on the police proceedings led by the lady DCP dealing with the departmental politics, government political pressure and her own family members all together. She assembles a team in no time after the crime gets reported and then goes after the four boys involved, catching them within a week’s time answering the fingers pointed towards the efficiency of Delhi Police.
The execution is impressively realistic as an edge of the seat investigative thriller with a worth noticing background score (using the natural road sounds too) and there are intense performances by almost everyone emoting on screen including Shefali Shah, Rasika Duggal, Abhilasha Singh, Rajesh Tailang, Vinod Sharawat, Yashaswini Dayama and more.
The series also deserves praises for not emphasizing or showing the incident as it should be done but at the same time can also be criticized for taking sides, presenting the police and its achievements in a complete positive light or in a defensive mode avoiding the most obvious. In fact, some may also find it as purposefully made to paint a completely different and favourable image of the force.
Having said that, the presentation still doesn’t give you much to complain, as it rightly scares you, shakes you, makes you think and ends on a thoughtful as well as an uncomfortable note, raising questions on the entire system and the people altogether. And that’s exactly what a film or series made on such socially relevant and significant subjects need to do.
So watch it as a must and seriously think, how we have changed since the incident in 2012 or it’s just the same and no drastic transformation has been there, neither in the system, in the authorities nor in us, the ultimate sufferers, the people.  

Rating : 4 / 5
