In the long waiting list of shows or series to be aired soon on amazon prime, Mumbai Diaries 26/11 holds a significant rank this year. 26/ 11 has made history in Indian records, even today when we think of the scenes and consequences that happened. our heart starts pounding. And whats about those who have suffered through this?
On 26/11 2008, the day of the event celebrated as black day, a number of films and series have put their presentation at different levels. All were inspired by the true story of a massive 3-day continuous terror in the “Taj Hotel” situation in Mumbai, Maharashtra. The main gang leader was Kasab, who was just a teenage boy. He was with all his terrorist gang from Pakistan that rushed to the hotel in the evening, sealing all the entrance and exits. They planned a coordinate shooting and bombs were used as well. Everyone was killed to death, sparing none whether it is child or old people, flourishing bloodshed everywhere, we all can imagine. Some brave people survived by pretending to be dead but were in a very critical stage and faces were fully pale when they were taken care of. Many masterminds were caught afterward.
Now, coming as an Amazon’s series, what’s new if a lot was already there about the whole story? Director Nikkhil Advani elevated this series by giving a new angle and dimension to it. Everyone knows it from reference to THE TAJ HOTEL. But here, he presented it from a hospital frame – Cama hospital where terrorists planned to destroy all healing items, making people unable to reach, leaving all humanity behind, just only focussed on their plan.
Starring the leads as Konkona Sensharma and Mohit Raina (who earlier appeared in a TV show playing Bholenath) makes the scene more dramatic. According to a still picture, we can expect her as a patient in the hospital. Rest is still not confirmed about the role being played by other stars.
