Hiten Tejwani plays a Mumbai Crime Branch officer, who seems to have a complicated personal life. His wife is just about to leave him, but the separation seems amicable. His life goes for a toss because of a chance meeting at a bar – which becomes the root of an investigation that he must head now.
What’s Wow: The Investigation seems to be very confident about the storyline. This is the first thriller that has the story opened out to the audience. This proves that the scriptwriters are confident that the twists and turns will keep the audience engaged in the series. Hiten Tejwani does a good job of playing the tough as nails investigation officer – a character that’s a far cry away from the soft, romantic leads that he has played till now.
Another noteworthy aspect of The Investigation is the duration of the episodes. The creators create crisp, short duration screenplays instead of the long winding, forty minuters. That could be an acquired taste, but does work well for the material here. The performances are good enough and it all ends up as a gritty story.
What’s Blah: Nothing
Parting Shot: The Investigation has an interesting premise. It remains to be seen how the story progresses.
