First Impression

In Sultan Of Delhi, a man from nowhere battles to gain control of the city using his cleverness and strength. It is another example of gangster drama. The fact that it doesn’t ramp up the action and depicts a sincere and loving bond that keeps you attached through the season sets it apart from other gangster dramas.

Plot of the web series

Sultan Of Delhi, taking place in the 1960s, tells the tale of Arjun Bhatia (Tahir Raj Bhasin), a refugee who, aside from his father, lost everyone during the Partition and has lofty aspirations to rule over Delhi.

Story of the web series

Our leading man appears as a courageous rebel in some frightening early scenes of the story, which happen during the Partition. Cut to Arjun and Bangali (Anjumm Shharma) interacting during a game of chance. Our support for them grows throughout the season as we watch them develop into unbreakable friends. Arjun and Bangali worked with a well-known gun smuggler, Jagan Seth (Vinay Pathak).

Review of the web series

The narrative could have become more engaging rather than falling flat at times. The only aspect of the first season that stands out is the unadulterated bond between Arjun and Bangali. The swiftness of the series makes it somewhat average. The only way the program differs from the many other gangster stories is that.

But just like any Milan Luthria production, the dialogue in the series does have an impact, and the music fits. The action scenes keep you interested without becoming overly violent. The show, which centers on a book, starts too literally before becoming more engaging as it nears the climax. It occasionally reminds you more of a Bollywood film than an imposed love story television show.

The first few episodes of the series do seem a little anticipated, but as Arjun develops into an emergence in the world of crime, it becomes more compelling, and it isn’t until the very end that it also becomes nerve-wracking. Sultan of Delhi needs your time as an audience.

Performance of the cast

# Arjun Bhatia gets an outstanding performance by Tahir Raj Bhasin, who will make you love and despise the character. Tahir appeared too young to carry the heroic burden required of his character, but his controlling screen presence makes up for it.

# Anjumm Shharma is the most relatable character in the show due to his portrayal of a devoted friend, fearless foe, and passionate lover.

# Anupriya Goenka stands out among the supporting cast members because of her impact and execution.

# Even with a short amount of screen time, Mouni Roy makes an impression.

The friendship between Bangali and Arjun makes you think of Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra in Sholay and evokes strong Jai Veeru feelings all the way through.

Final Verdict

Milan Luthria’s gangster drama, full of punchlines, is an array of feelings that slowly decode as characters reveal their true selves. Everything about Luthria’s series is what you would expect, from the compelling characters to the stunning visuals.
