Bollywood has witnessed some gems in the political arena, with masterpieces like Raajneeti, Yuva, Shanghai, Nayak and Sarkar immediately springing to mind. The same can’t be said though for Hindi TV shows and web series, at least not when it comes to hardcore dirty politics and nothing else as the central focus. That’s why Sony LIV’s new web series, Maharani, becomes all the more important to set a precedent on the small screen, and you’d be glad to know that the Huma Qureshi starrer, directed by Subhash Kapoor (Jolly LLB 1 and 2) more than delivers on its promise.
So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering whether the Maharani web series is worth your time? Scroll down for my full Maharani review…
What’s it about
After the ruling chief minister of Bihar, Bheema Bharti (Sohum Shah), gets critically injured, the political landscape of the state is thrown into turmoil, with several vultures in his own party eager to pounce on his vulnerable state. While the investigation proceeds to ferret out his assassins, the pressing need of the hour is to declare a new CM for the time being, and even in his dilapidated condition, Bheema Bharti throws a political curveball by usurping majority support and then declaring his wife, Rani Bharti (Huma Qureshi) as the interim CM.
