London Files Season 1 Review: Sachin Pathak directs the web series London Files, an Indian crime thriller. Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli play the main characters in the series. On April 21, 2022, the series debuted on Voot.
Om Singh (Arjun Rampal), a homicide detective, unearths secrets and lies in London’s underworld while searching for media baron Amar Roy’s (Purab Kohli) missing daughter.
This six-episode investigative drama, helmed by Sachin Pathak (who had previously directed another cop thriller,’ Kathmandu Connection), follows a homicide detective who is striving to solve a high-profile case while battling his problems.
As seen in ‘Luther,’ ‘Wallander,’ and ‘Happy Valley,’ to mention a few examples, this damaged cop character who is clever and fights his inner demons is a mainstay of western cop drama.
With engaging, fleshed-out characters and a compelling plot, there’s enough here to keep viewers guessing right up until the final reveal.
Finally, what starts as a dark mystery thriller quickly becomes a story of lies, secrets, and redemption.
Prateek Payodhi’s screenplay is carefully crafted and methodically paced. The protagonist’s (Om Singh) dilemma becomes obvious after only a few minutes into the series.
The plot is separated into two sections: the previous catastrophe that transformed Om’s 14-year-old son Yash Singh (Manvir Bawa) into a dark figure and ended his married life, and the present, which depicts Om researching a case to locate Maya (Medha Rana).
Amar Roy, the daughter of a powerful media magnate, is a divisive personality in London due to his support for a harsh anti-immigration law. Om’s probe into the crime intensifies, exposing buried secrets and his repressed past.
London Files Cast
Synopsis of The London Files
Detective Om Singh is interested in finding Amar Roy’s daughter. She hasn’t been seen in quite a while.
On the ground is a circle-shaped mark that resembles a snake biting its tail.
Singh’s ability to solve the case decreases as he learns more about London’s secrets, puzzles, and lies.
He also has to cope with his past, which is obstructing his investigation.
The situation becomes even worse when Singh claims that Roy is one of the suspects.
What Is the Story About?
‘London Files,’ a new crime and thriller drama from Voot Select, stars Arjun Rampal as detective Om Singh, the best in the London Metropolitan Police.
Maya Roy, the missing daughter of media baron Amar Roy (Purab Kohli), is assigned to him by his boss and buddy Raanjh (Sagar Arya) (Medha Rana).
As Om delves deeper into the case’s complexity, he uncovers a deep-seated conspiracy brewing in London’s underbelly, all while battling his problems and sad background, which threaten to undermine his research.
Ajay Rai of Jar Pictures produces London Files, which is authored by Prateek Payodhi and directed by Sachin Pathak.
As the angst-ridden, down-on-his-luck investigator Om Singh, Arjun Rampal is well cast.
His well-groomed decrepit appearance complements his persona. It takes a while for Rampal to settle into the intricate character, but once he does (around the second episode), there’s no going back.
Gopal Datt appears to be trying to break out from his comic stereotypes.
He’s been actively choosing edgy negative parts as of late (first Candy, now London Files).
He gradually gets into the character’s groove as the chief motivator of a crusading cult. His performance, on the other hand, isn’t very noteworthy.
Purab Kohli has been cast in a little role, which he handles deftly.
He appears in only a few of episodes before disappearing for the remainder of the six-episode series.
Medha Rana’s portrayal of Maya Roy is outstanding and captivating. Raanjh, Om’s protective employer, is played well by Sagar Arya. Sapna Pabbi has a little role in the film, so there’s nothing to talk about there.
