The show is very well written and directed. Each season is gripping and will have you on your edge of your seat gagging for the next installment. Most crime shows are all about justice which is great but sometimes its nice to see the opposite side of things. There are so many dynamic characters in the shows that adds interest. You get to see the ups and downs in the relationships and the characters are alike in many ways but also very unique. You get to see a new case every week and you get to follow Annalise and her students into court while also getting a glimpse into everyone's personal lives. The beginning is bit confusing and hard to figure out whats going on but honestly, that's what makes it so suspenseful and thrilling. It is partially a legal drama but there is so much more than that which will never make you feel bored. It is primarily a mystery and a thriller because every season starts with a intriguing a flash-forward, showing us a very dramatic event that take place in their mid-season finale.

Bandish Bandits- Web Series Review

"Music is a piece of art that goes in the ear straight to the Heart"

Bandish Bandits is a treat for those who love Music especially classical music. Art should not be a burden but a joy that sets you free and brings people together. The real star of the show is the Music. It had some lovely songs and its wonderful to see and hear characters talk about and sing a Khayal, Thumri and Bandish, all styles that are slowly getting lost in today's world.

Rating: ✬✬✬
Network : Amazon Prime Video
Director : Anand Tiwari

Strengths : Brilliant music and Cinematography 
Weakness : Characters lack dimension and Slow space story

Cast :

Naseeruddin Shah (Sangeet Samrat Rathod-Panditji) : He is excellent and manages to bring right amount of vulnerability to ensure that you don't dislike him.

Rajesh Tailang and Amit Mistry : Both these characters bring adequate pity and resentment to their roles

Sheeba Chaddha : She is brilliant as always, very subtle and impressive

Atul Kulkarni : Is a fine actor and brings out negativity in very elusive way.

Ritwik Bhowmik and Shreya Chaudhary : Quite impressive, though both are not great performers but their lack of experience works well here

Kunal Roy Kapur : He is Tamanna's agent (Arghya) brings the laughs but lack dimensions like most of the cast.

Meghana Malik and Rituraj Singh (Tamanna's Parents) : Natural Actors and played their part well
