2.5 Good

Review of 'Farzi'
Streaming on Amazon Prime Vedeo
8 Episode from the maker of 'The Family Man' Raj Nidimoru &
Krishna DK.
Storytelling is about counterfeiting as a big problem in Indian Economy. It was done brilliantly with full detailing, research & making techniques.
Screenplay and direction deserve a lot of praise.

Now it became fashion to show cracked marriage life of security or spy agencies officers. Showing just due to duty, marriage life broke and gone upto level of divorce. Equations of marriage life of Vijay Setupathi with his wife in Farzi, Manoj Bajpai with his wife in Family Man, Regina Cassandra with her husband in Jaanbaz Hindustan ke..same scene by scene just copy paste.
This subplot was unnecessarily inserted.
No unnecessary sex scene, but in the name of reality every 2nd dialogues is full of foul languages...you can show reality also without unnecessary foul languages. In an interview Sharmila Tagore said Manoj Bajpai..ab gaali mat dena. Manoj and K K Menon are versatile actor of world class, they don't need unnecessarily foul languages in name of reality.

Like Family Man not much use of long shots. But cinematography is splendid.
Background scoring and songs are average.
Competitive performance by every actor. Seeing Amol Palekar in Gulmohar and now in Farzi..a great feeling. Rashi Khanna well done.
Exceptional chemistry with humor between Bhuvan Arora as Feroz & Shahid Kapoor as Sunny, Vijay Setupathi as a Michael & Zakir Hussain as a Minister is fire cracking.
Character buildup of Vijay Setupathi is influenced by Manoj Bajpai, same as The Family Man. But Vijay Setupathi delivered as his own in a marvellous way.
K K Menon is a mind blowing, he is himself an acting institution..he dont look like K K Menon..he is Mansoor a ruthless gangster.

For using the foul languages, repeating sequence of equation of marriage life, my rating will be 2 star out of 5.
If you are alone in house and for time passing you can see this series and enjoy. No masterpiece no classic no outstanding.
Chellam Sir and Srikant Tiwari..reference shows that we will see very soon the next sequel. Expecting Manoj Bajpai Vijay Setupathi and K K Menon in one frame.
