Indian web series have tried more than a few historical epics in recent times, with MX Player’s Ramyug and Chhatrasal, and ALT Balaji’s Paurashpur immediately coming to mind. But before you could get into the creative aspects of these shows, their production values ​​put off most viewers. After all, we are past the Ramayan and Mahabharat days of the 1980s and our content, even on the small screen, should reflect that, right? So Disney + Hotstar’s The Empire, starring Kunal Kapoor, Dino Morea, Shabana Azmi, Drashti Dhami, Imaad Shah, Rahul Dev, and Aditya Seal, fixes those past mistakes. Well, to a rather admirable extent it does so while plotting a reasonably engaging story along the way.

What is it about

Disney Plus Hotstar’s The Empire charts the course of Babur’s (Kunal Kapoor) rise to power from his early days as a teenage Baadhsah and renouncing his kingdoms in the Fergana Valley to regain his birthright and eventually land on the Indian border. to conquer it. .

Check out the trailer for The Empire below:

What heat

As mentioned above, the visual effects, camera work, set design, costumes, action choreography, set-up and execution of war sequences are levels higher than similar web series on Indian OTT platforms. that preceded it. The show screams richness in each frame and the way the plot is narrated keeps you attentive to its intrigue. Coming to performances, Drashti Dhami, Imaad Shah, Rahul Dev and Shabana Azmi are all in the money and Dino Morea proves that if you act long enough, you will surely show some improvement after almost two decades.

What not

Kunal Kapoor is the Empire’s biggest drawback, proving to be as rigid as ever, completely unable to imbue the aura of a Mughal emperor. Editing is another major issue with several unnecessary scenes that could have been cut out. Also, Mitakshara Kumar’s directing lacks vitality in some key sequences, making you wonder who got it right in other cases. Also, the script could have been developed more historically, delving into several fundamental aspects of Babur’s life.

BL verdict

The Empire looks better than all the vintage web series that have preceded it on Indian platforms, but it could have been even better. Fortunately, almost all of the actors are on point and support the Nikkhil Advani show during some of its stumbling moments, while also bypassing Kunal Kapoor as Babur. Overall worth a single observation if you are not a fan who cannot digest the fact that the Mughals contributed so much to the history and culture of India and their tyrannical ways were nothing more than a product of conquest, barbarism. . time, that the Indian kings who preceded them also imposed on their fellow state rulers. I go with 3 out of 5 stars.
