Tandav Web Series Review: Story & Performances

Tandav marks Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial debut on the OTT platform. He has already directed some blockbuster Bollywood movies like “Gunday”, “Sultan”, “Tiger Zinda Hai”, etc.

In the opening scene, we saw farmers protesting to save their land. After receiving the order first from Gurpal(Sunil Grover) and then from their superiors to kill 3 selected people among those protestors two Policemen successfully executed it.

Gurpal is the right hand of Samar Pratap Singh (Saif Ali Khan), who is the son of the current Prime Minister of India Devki Nandan (Tigmanshu Dhulia).

Then we saw a student leader Shiva(Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub) trying to get student support at the VNU campus.

Samar poisoned his father to death. It was almost certain that he would be the next Prime Minister after his father’s death. But he had other plans and announce Anuradha Kishore’s(Dimple Kapadia) name.

She and Devki were in a relationship during their earlier days. Anuradha’s son Raghu(Paresh Pahuja) would have been the Defense Minister as earlier decided by Devki.

An unknown call to Anuradha’s confidante Maithili informed claims of having proof of Devki’s murder. They believed and accepted the proposal of having a small part of the proof at a cost of 1 crore rupees.

After watching the trailer many of us had expected that Tandav could be one of the best political thrillers. It rarely meets those expectations.

Except for the stellar acting performances from Saif Ali Khan & Dimple Kapadia, you will rarely find any good elements throughout the series.

Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sunil Grover, and Gauhar Khan also contributed well with their respective characters.

Gaurav Solanki’s writing looked very ordinary. Some of those very familiar dialogues and a weak plot rarely left any good impression.
