What is good and bad aspects of Mumbai Dairies 26/11 Amazon series?
This web series is the casting as the creators have appropriately roped in talent depending on the flexibility with which they can speak their native tongue naturally in the middle of dialogues as the Mumbai police plays a key role in the series and thankfully most of the police officers are Marathi actors that are fluent in the language and just as they would in real life provide instructions in the native language and actually lend an authenticity to the storyline.
The creators take many decisions that actually halt the proceedings of the show abruptly there are moments that are captured through photography flash sounds of stills being taken that don’t really lend a dramatic impact to the story I mean if that was intended another generic tool utilized in the series of flashbacks provided for every character as the visuals transitioned to become black and white providing us insight of either the character’s personal life or why they are reacting to a situation in a particular way again a technical tool that is extremely pedestrian from a storytelling perspective of every character is cast.
The movements of set design and attention to detail as most of the series has been shot in one location that is a combination of a real-life building and a set created on many shooting days the creators would religiously plan five to six long shots without any cuts that is actually reflective of the hustle and bustle that goes in on a daily basis of doctors working in government hospitals with the cinematography of Kaushal shah. The production designed by Priya Suhaas and the art direction by Vijay Gourke also needs to be appreciated there has been careful insight that has been provided in order to reflect the state of medical infrastructure of the country the building.
