Rating:  3.5/ 5

Released date : 28th May 2020


Nowadays, crime based Web series based on real stories are being liked a lot. After popular web series like 'Mirzapur', 'Sacred Games', 'Abduction' and 'Patal Lok', once again the free streaming OTT platform MX player has brought the first season of its original web series 'Raktanchal' to the audience. The story of Raktanchal web series is based on Crime and  emerging mafia raj, gang war and domination in the mid-80s in Purvanchal in Uttar Pradesh.

The story of 'Raktanchal' starts from 1984 when the father of Vijay Singh (Kranthi Prakash Jha), who wants to become a simple and IAS of the village, is murdered by gangster Wasim Khan (Nikitan Dhir). After this, in order to avenge the murder of his father, Vijay Singh leaves his schooling and goes into the world of crime. Over time, Vijay Singh's strength increases so much that he directly challenges Wasim Khan's supremacy. From these two gangs, rivers of blood flow in Purvanchal, the story of which is 'Raktanchal'.

It would not be wrong to say that Anurag Kashyap's 'Gangs of Wasseypur' in Bollywood has given audiences a taste of crime drama films and series that one such series is coming in front of the audience. The story will bind you from the very first episode of 'Raktanchal'. Kranti Prakash Jha has played the role of Hero Vijay Singh in the web series. After films like 'MS Dohni : The Untold Story', 'Batla House' and TV series 'Swami Ramdev- Ek Sangharsh', Kranti Prakash has been overshadowed by his acting and dialogue delivery in 'Raktanchal'. Nikitan Dheer seems dangerous in the role of Villan Wasim Khan but he needs to work a lot on his facial expression and dialogue delivery.

Apart from both the lead roles, Ravi Khanvilkar in the role of corrupt politician Pujari Singh and Vikram Kochhar in the character of Wasim Khan's goon freak are quite strong. Ronjini Chakraborty's character Seema and Krishna Bisht's character Katta arrive quite late but leave an impression. Pramod Pathak plays the role of Tripurari. Politician Saheb Singh's character could have been improved but in this role, the best actors like Daya Shankar Pandey have not been handled properly.

The story of 'Raktanchal' has been written by Ranjit, Sarvesh Upadhyay and Shashank Rahi of Sanjeev. Director Ritam Srivastava has completely tied the atmosphere of the mid-80s in 'Raktanchal'. The politics of Hindu-Muslim and Ram temple in Uttar Pradesh in the late 80s has also been included. The story of 'Raktanchal' is good but the dialogues have been somewhat weak which only managed to leave a limited impact on the audience. In the story, Vijay Singh's love story could be shown properly, which has been reduced to a few scenes.

2 songs are been filmised into the webseries and are very good.The webseries story gets ended at that point for that you will have to wait for the second episode of the webseries.
