The surge in Desi Crime shows made us stay connected to our screen during locking. And almost everyone wanted to get this bandwagon. Lalbazaar, the new original Zee5 who took action to Kolkata, was one goal.
More suitable for daylight slots on TV, Lalbazaar has found its way online. And gets attention also with Ajay Devgn lends her voice trailer. However, what is needed is advice in the Manuscript Department.
Named after the police headquarters in Kolkata, Lalbazaar rings the bell.
This event was exactly what it was suggested by his name. A group of police dedicated to the crime in the heart of Bengali while several black sheep played spoilsport. Maybe this prediction breaks out the show.
Although good production values, performances are disappointed by the humble nature of their evil and solutions that can predict.
The storyline has two parallel tangents: one from an investigation into the murder of sex workers. The other is from all strange murders (often ridiculous) in the city.
Try to wrap your head: a man strangled his neighbor’s panty planted carefully by the killer. But some of his possessions were annoyed because of a piece of clothing in cheap quality. And it included his widow. What’s in the world!

Usually, bong spoke in damaged Hindi sounded sweet. But in this series, one actor brought his Bangla accent to the Hindi Dubbing studio, and the others did not. This, make the narrative inconsistent and compromise the authenticity of the story.
Also, the Bengal brothel has stereotypes outside the words: women raised their skirts On the smallest kokong, smoked and drank all day, and wore complex makeup even when they were in Jimmy. The thugs must be a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan because there seems to be his appearance from ‘Raes’; it does not work.
Known Bengali actors from the COP Reel-Life Brigade:
Such as Gaurav Chakrabarty, Sauraseni Maitra, and Kaushik Sen. It did a little but almost no meat the role to them, and they disappointed.
Also, Sabyasachi Chakrabarty, Husky, voiced barely in the series, will be interested in seeing more about him. And for Hrishita, Bhatt also did his best to put up a good show. With anything available for him: not functioning. Not to mention, the climax is only ho-hum.
This event is located in Kolkata, but there is no effort to bring a local taste to a thriving culture. Only the main actor Kaushik Sen who had Hindi, acquainted with Bangla, gave you a feeling, while everyone refused to withdraw from the warmth of the culture of the city of joy. The experienced actor that Kaushik is, he brings his experience and depth to the show and is one of a few victories.
A police officer obsessed with sex promised to add a unique touch to the plot but ended up as a caricature. While the series failed to arouse sensations or tensions, it was a little more successful in whipping emotional chords with viewers regarding personal character stories.
Rich in dirt and violence, an intrinsic part of the crime thriller on OTTS.
Lalbazaar failed to add meat and bones after surprising us with bloodshed. After rolling you with Gore, which starts feeling delicious after a while, the show is loose ending about what to do with you. It throws random cases on you with uneven results but fails to bind everything together. This can satisfy CID patrol fans and crime but falls far below the standard governed by Sacred Games, family men, and newer local applies.
Not only the thematic inconsistency, but the show suffers from narrative contradictions too – the fetus is three months later shown as a fetus that has grown full, for example. Moreover, it was challenging to receive two police officers secretly listening when the Irate resident sneered them to pamper the crime rate.
The event had a weak start but collected steam in the second half. Only to end with a floating flock of climax. After six and a half hours, Lalbazaar wrapped the main plot point. In a few minutes, as if the players and crew were also running out of patience. This series remains open with the promise of the second season hanging in the air. Now it’s a trip that I have to make.
