Special Ops Review
Special Ops web series is already growing with success so far, there is the hope of a good response in the coming time as well.
The show has recreated Parliament of India for filming 2001 Indian Parliament attack portions which were dealt for the first time in film history. Apart from India, the show is filmed in Turkey, Jordan, and Azerbaijan. The series follows Himmat Singh (Menon) of Research and Analysis Wing who draws similar patterns in terrorist attacks and is convinced a single person is behind all the attacks. His task force team of five agents living in various parts of the world aim to catch the mastermind. The story is inspired by several espionage missions undertaken by India in the last two decades
We open at the 2001 attack on the Parliament of India, before jumping eighteen years forward to an internal inquiry into RAW agent Himmat Singh (Kay Kay Menon, from Shaurya). For nearly two decades, Himmat’s been after a terrorist with the alias of Ikhlaq Khan essentially a MacGuffin for most of the show’s runtime in whose pursuit he has spent vast resources on his team of five agents spread across Asia. Himmat believes Ikhlaq is the mastermind behind the aforementioned Parliament attack and several more across India. But here’s the catch: no one believes Himmat. And with nothing to show for it after all this time, the investigators force Himmat to recount what exactly he’s been up to with the millions he’s seemingly wasted on chasing a ghost. The show promises to be a thrilling one with lots of action sequences and some intense drama. Everyone has done justice to their roles in the series. The series is a perfect blend of facts and fiction.
The teaser poster was released on 25 February 2020. The trailer was dropped on the same day at a press conference held, which was attended by cast and crew.
