OVERALL:⭐⭐

The Empire is a new hindi historical web series streaming on Disney+Hotstar from 27th August 2021. It is based on the series of novel Empire of the Moghul by Alex Rutherford. Directed by Mitakshara Kumar, the show is starring some good talents like Kunal Kapoor, Drashti Dhami, Rahul Dev etc. as different historical characters.

The Empire, India’s attempt at Game of Thrones, it is nothing close to it.. The plot of th series is also bad which lacks interest. History enthusiasts are also going to find this show boring. The screenplay is also average which fails to grip the audience.  Most scenes lack emotional depth which make it tough for one to connect with a character or feel invested in the show

The sets and costumes of the series are excellent. Furthermore, the cinematography of the series is also good. The VFX work is bad and the audience will be disappointed. Moreover, dialogue delivery is very disgusting and kills the show. Some episodes feel too long, especially those with dance and music.

CAST PERFORMANCES:

Firstly, Shabana Azmi, has done an excellent work. Drashti Dhami’s performance is average and is not effective. Kunal Kapoor has played his part excellently and has lived upto his character. Rahul Dev is also good. Imaad Shah plays Babur’s seems an odd choice for the character. Rest of the cast is good.
