The latest foray of Rohit Shetty’s indomitable cops into the realm of web series, “Indian Police Force,” falls short of expectations, lacking both style and substance. The lead cast, including Sidharth Malhotra, Shilpa Shetty, and Vivek Oberoi, fails to inject freshness into the stale narrative.

Uninspiring Adaptation from Sooryavanshi

Rohit Shetty’s Cop Universe makes an awkward transition to the world of web shows in “Indian Police Force.” Pursuing “India’s most wanted terrorist,” the series echoes its film counterpart, Sooryavanshi (2021). The only notable difference lies in its toned-down tone across the seven-part Amazon Original Series.

Formulaic Thrills Over Realism

Despite revolving around the efforts of a Muslim police officer combatting a radicalized threat, the series opts for formulaic thrills over gritty realism. Created and directed by Rohit Shetty, with a script by Sandeep Saket and Anusha Nandkumar, “Indian Police Force” sacrifices immersive storytelling for surface gloss.

Action-Packed but Lacking Thunder

While the series is filled with action sequences, shootouts, and chases, it departs from the traditional high-octane Cop Universe style. However, this departure does not contribute to authenticity but instead hinders the show from becoming the compelling police drama it could have been.

Stale Performances in Stilted Narration

The principal cast, including Sidharth Malhotra, Shilpa Shetty, and Vivek Oberoi, fails to breathe life into the mundane material. Their performances lack freshness, and the characters come off as predictable and uninspiring. Tragedy strikes the team, yet their responses lack the emotional depth required to engage the audience.

Balancing Act of Protagonist Kabir Malik

Sidharth Malhotra’s Kabir Malik, the first Muslim policeman in a universe dominated by Singham, Simmba, and Sooryavanshi, attempts a delicate balancing act in a screenplay constrained by conventional binaries. The character is portrayed as hot-headed, but the narrative fails to substantiate this claim.

Predictable Plot Points

The series unfolds with familiar plot points, including terror attacks, intelligence inputs, and a race against time. Kabir Malik, striving to return to the field, discovers a common thread linking the attacks, compelling him to convince his superiors to entrust him with the case.

In summary, “Indian Police Force” lacks the vigor and innovation required to elevate it above the monotony of its Cop Universe predecessors. The predictable narrative, coupled with uninspiring performances, makes it a lackluster addition to the genre.
