DARK 7 WHITE Review
Prince Yudhveer Singh aka Yudi (Sumeet Vyas) is about to realize his dream. The young royal blood is about to take his oath as the new CM of Rajasthan – the youngest. Shockingly on his way through the oath taking ceremony Yudi gets killed. His close friends played by Nidhi Singh, Monica Chaudhary, Taniya Kalra, Kunj Anand, Shekhar Choudhary and Sumit Singh are the suspects. Abhimanyu Singh (Jatin Sarna) is the cop investigating the case, who has a connection with them.
Internet famous Sumeet Vyas does all the talking in this web series which is a massy juicy mix bag of power, lust, greed, youth, ambition, love and betrayal. Pure escapism without the opium that goes overboard with its surreal headings of its episodes inviting the moral police to have a stage.
There is a scope for season 2 and for its sheer entertainment value if you ignore all those titles of this 10 episode series then it’s a satisfying binge watch.
The initial episodes are shaky but not that threatening to force the audience to lose interest, midway through it gets momentum and then it grabs you and refuses to leave your mind.
If you are looking for some self-discovery of the prime characters in cinematic sense, some digging on the political scenario etc. then this web series written by Mohinder Pratap Singh, Mayuri Roy Choudhury, Pranjal Saxena, Shashank Kunwar and Snehil Dixit, helmed by Sattwik Mohanty & Preya Hirji will make you cringe and ask for exit.
DARK 7 WHITE is targeted to the sections that ‘binges’ on OTT regularly – those who have made superstars out of Sumeet Vyas, Jitendra Kumar, Bhuvan Bam etc. and not for those ‘thinking’ minds.
The web series is powered by some strong acts where Sumeet Vyas leads the way. Followed by Jatin Sarna who is fantastic as the cop. Kunj Anand is impressive.
The ladies Taniya Kalra. Monica Chaudhary and Nidhi Singh add value and twist to the story and are fabulous in their portrayal.
Other casts also chip in with valuable support Rachit Bahal as Yudi’s trusted right hand, Sanjay Batra as Shamsher, Satyajeet Rajput as Daaga, Sanjay Swaraj as Bhairo and Madhurima Roy also impresses in a cameo.
Technicalities are fair and rest is nothing to shout about.
