Hansal Mehta understands the depth
When the trailer of ‘Scam 2003’ was released, the question in everyone’s mind was that how deep Hansal Mehta would go into this story. The series has answered all the questions. Whenever Hansal enters a story, he tears it apart. He did the same with ‘Scam 2003’. He has not left a single point in the series where you do not see the depth of the story. It is less to praise him for going into the depth of the story and making it.
The series is directed by Tushar Hiranandani. He has done a great job as a director. In the series, you see only Mumbai city of 20 to 40 years ago. He has introduced every character in detail. Be it a fake stamp or a fake attack in a moving train, Tusshar has done justice to the smallest scene and story.
Gagan Dev Riyar is overshadowed
Gagan Dev Riyar surprises you in the role of Telgi. He played his role in such a powerful way that seeing as if he has mixed and drunk the story. In the series, Gagan was seen copying Hubbu Telgi. As an actor, he did not realize at all that he was playing a role. He treated the character as if he himself was living that moment.
