Cricket is a religion for people in India, but is also home to a number of interesting incidents. Many of these colourful incidents are hidden deep in a world of money, politics and talent. When some of these stories threaten to come out, we are definitely interested.

Karan Anshuman’s ‘Inside Edge’ allegedly based on the IPL series has created quite a buzz since it was first announced. The teaser raised several eyebrows because of the controversial scenes and the trailer will definitely have people talking.

The trailer introduces us to several characters and the gist of the story. Richa Chadha plays a female team owner who’s on the verge of losing the team. Vivek Oberoi plays a conniving, all powerful man who controls the cricket franchise. There’s Sanjay Suri as a coach and Tanuj Virwani plays a flamboyant batsman.

The trailer has the audience hit the ground running and gives a quick peek into the world of cricket that has only been spoken about as yet and never revealed. It promises to be a thriller series that’s filled with drama.

As expected, Excel Entertainment’s production value of the series is good. Finally, we get to see a series that has more than three camera angles. The sport scenes do look promising and remind one of the great scenes in Chak De! India and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

On the performance front, though we cannot judge an entire performance from just the cutscenes, we think all the actors will show their acting mettle.
