About the story:
Operation Parindey is Zee5‘s latest crime thriller. Sanjay Gadhvi of Dhoom fame directs this movie that features Amit Sadh and Rahul Dev in the lead. Inspired by true events, the movie is a fictional adaptation of the famous jailbreak of 2016 in Punjab.
Watch the trailer of Operation Parindey here:
The movie starts with Monty Singh, a famous terrorist, serving his sentence at a jail in Punjab. Having influenced fellow prisoners he gets assisted in fleeing away from the jail. There’s a huge ruckus all around and four criminals flee with the help of another convict called Pabbi (Aakash Dahiya).
The Police Commission hires Inspector Abhinav Mathur to hunt down Monty and the other criminals. Abhinav along with his diligent team try tracing down Monty Singh and the other prisoners. Hence, the 54-minute long cat and mice chase between the two parties sums up the plot of the story.
SUGGESTED: Review – SHUKRANU (2020)
A concept similar to this could shape up a mini-series. Further, each department starting from direction to writing renders disappointment. Similarly, there could have been a more magnified screenplay constituting the jailbreak and the final showdown. However, the promising performance of the star cast is the only factor trying to save the ship from sinking. Both Amit Sadh and Rahul Dev try their level best to enthrall the audience but the damage is too huge to be covered up.
What works: Acting
What doesn’t work: Direction, writing, and screenplay
