Shrikant Bashir review

The story, dialogues, and screenplay are done by Shiraz Ahmed. The plot of the web series is nowadays trending. Whenever the special training team realizes that something major and bad incident is going to happen they get themselves involved and start investigating the case as soon as they can and search for criminals. All the members of the team face a lot of movement in their life and the beginning they also don't trust each other but when we move to the end of the series they start trusting each other & everything gets better.

If you guys have watched the Indian serial CID then you will very well understand the Shrikant Bashir web series has a strong resemblance to the CID serial as the same concept is being used here- solving cases every week. In the show, the team deals with huge threats at the country and world level. The series could have become a better one and easily worked if they made the series only of 10 episodes rather than throwing 26 episodes and all at once which practically tests viewers' patience.

The characters don’t have any depth of detailing. In the show you will also not be able to identify who they’re as human beings and about their true nature as nothing is shown here, their emotional angles remorselessly follow the same unexciting route of solving the threats which seems like a punishment for the viewers. 

Giving Shrikant Bashir review on episodes, the makers seem very serious and he continuously serves the same order and the same scene. The series is full of drama & melodrama & the series is exactly like CID on Indian Television.

Now coming to the Shrikant Bashir review on the cast's performances. Gashmeer Mahajani as Shrikant Mhatre is quite positive & he fits perfectly for the character. Yushistir Singh as Bashir Khan gave a decent performance. Other cast members have also done a great job. Except for the storyline which was not good as expected, the actors' performances are okay as none of the characters comes out as effective. 

Shrikant Bashir review on cinematography which is done by Srinivas Ramiah and the production design is done by Kunal Bardhan, both of them did a good job. The background is done by Sandeep Batraa and he failed to make perfect delivery of some of the action scenes though it’s not his mistake. 


Shrikant Bashir episodes are 13 hours long and tiring web series. The storyline lacks variety which makes it dull. The viewers start losing their interest in the first episode with the same storyline and no uniqueness. Different people have different tastes and preferences about a film and series. Shrikant Bashir is only for those who love watching suspense, thrilling, crime, action, drama, and national security-related content. The creator of the web series has not released anything about Shrikant Bashir season 2. But if you guys love to watch the mentioned type of content then go for it and watch it on Sony LIV.
