What the film is about? Trailer Review

Coming to the trailer, the series is about face-off between gangsters and cops at the time when the underworld was at its peak in Mumbai in the ‘90s. The action-packed trailer is about Mumbai Police set up a team of cops to clean the city from crime and counter criminal and gangster nexus.

Angad Bedi portrays the role of Bhasker Shetty, a no-nonsense encounter specialist who has taken the charge to clean the city and maintain law and order. Bhasker’s aim is to wash out each and every gangster and rule the city. The trailer focuses on how the cops are bound by law while gangsters have no limit and compulsion. It shows how the cops have to descend to the level of criminals and gangsters to bring them down. Watch the trailer on ZEE5.

Angad Bedi looks impressive as a top cop. He is all set to impress with one more note-worthy performance. Sikander Kher and Sandeepa Dhar look promising as well. It’s good to see some talented faces of Crime Petrol finally getting a cut here.

The synopsis of the web series on YouTube reads, “Jab saamne power, paisa aur Mumbai ko rule karne ka mauka ho, toh iss picture ka hero kaun nahi banna chahega! Iss game ke rules the bade simple, jiski goli mein dum vo power mein aa gaya Bhaskar ke 83 encounters ya Rama ka bhaigiri wala tashan. Kaun jeetne wala tha #MumBhai ka title?”

Madhurima Roy, who plays the role of a bar dancer in this series, described the show as, “Mum Bhai is a crime drama which deep dives into the Mumbai underworld and the narrative revolves around the loyalty and friendship between a cop and an underworld don.”

Our rating

What I liked most about the trailer is the retro setup and rawness. It does take you to the ride to Mumbai of the 90s when underworld and heavily active in the city. The bloodshed and encounter scenes look rough and real.

Overall, Mum Bhai looks like an intense gangster saga with plenty of entertaining elements. If you are a fan of crime gangster films then Mum Bhai should be on your watch list. I am going with 3.5 out of 5 stars.
