Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story is an Indian Hindi-language crime drama web-series on SonyLIV. Based on 1992 Indian stock market scam committed by many stockbrokers including Harshad Mehta, the series is adapted from journalist Sucheta Dalal and Debashish Basu’s 1992 book The Scam: Who Won, Who Lost, Who Got Away. The screenplay and dialogues were written by Sumit Purohit, Saurabh Dey, Vaibhav Vishal and Karan Vyas.
The storyline of the show is based on the book ” The scam” . It explores the life of Harshad Mehta from a Common man to the Bachchan of Stock Markets as well as the financial scams done by him. Furthermore It is one of the most layered, insightful and thrilling show ever made that keeps you hooked throughout its duration and clearly explains the concepts, processes and everything related to one of the biggest financial scams of India. The series consists of layered writing, brilliant direction and impactful dialogues in addition to the overwhelming performances of the whole cast.
The director, Hansal Mehta has also done an excellent job as well. Dialogues of the show are pretty much impactful & especially suit the attitude & character of Harshad Mehta. Cinematographer manages to present vintage Mumbai quite well. The core BGM is also addictive. Only Minor issues with the show are the slow pace in some points, some moments are above my understanding level and it feels a little bit stretched in some episodes. Instead of all these minor flaws, the layered, detailed and insightful writing are the biggest strength of the show that keeps you engaged throughout the series.
The casting of the show is also top-notch. Pratik Gandhi never let you feel that he is an actor playing the role of Harshad Mehta and clearly convince you totally that he is the Harshad Mehta through his brilliant performance. Shreya Dhanwanthry plays the role of Sucheta Dalal very convincingly. Anjali Barot is also such a delight to watch on screen. Furthermore Rajat kapoor’s performance is outstanding and rest of the actors of the series has also done an excellent job as well.
