When one watches the trailer of Tandav, one might expect trending issues like farmers’ protests, student agitation, or dynasty politics. However, Tandav does do not focus with sincerity on all these and feels like has lost sight of the more important issue that was to be considered.
Although performance-wise, Sunil Grover steals all the attention. Saif Ali Khan also looks good and appeals to the audience in his character. Dimple Kapadia, Kritika Kmara, Gauahar Khan have also played their part really well. However, the audience felt the story was not well-connected as it left many loopholes in between. For instance, when the Prime Minister gets killed in his premise, the investigation does not take place. Like how is this possible??
All in all, if you find political dramas interesting, you can definitely watch the show and make your own opinion of the show.
