Created and directed by Neeraj Pandey, whose previous work included A Wednesday, Special Chabbis, BABY and Special Ops web series, Special Ops 1.5 will consume you right from the opening episode where Himmat Singh’s story is narrated by Abbas (Vinay Pathak) for his retirement package. I would like to call Vinay Pathak’s introduction in the first episode adds to the charm of the web-series. The second episode begins with introduction of Himmat Singh’s special team (which is brilliantly displayed). What follows next is the series of cat and mouse game between the mastermind and the Himmat Singh’s team.

Few scenes is captivating and gripping in the first two episodes with nail-biting moments since there is a colossal attack going to happen which also has a connection to the previous terrorist attacks. The interrogation scene throughout the series is fun-filled. The creators have kept the room open for the third season which I am sure will be as eventful like this.
While Special Ops will keep you on your toes, there are few insignificant scenes which I felt hampers the momentum of the web-series in the third episode. Nevertheless, writing by Deepak Kingrani, Benazir Ali Fida and Neeraj Panday is brilliant which should be lauded. Technically, Special Ops 1.5 boast off brilliant cinematography capturing the beautiful locales around the world. Art direction is mind-blowing while background score creates more tension.
Performances of Specials Ops 1.5 is the highlight of the web-series. Kay Kay Menon leads the show with his flawless performance as Himmat Singh. This guy needs to do more films as whatever projects he does is worth-watching. Vinay Pathak as Abbas Sheikh adds in the entertainment factor. Aadil Khan as Maninder was outstanding. He has spark and should go a long way. Aftab Shivdasani makes a good come back. Other actors like Gautami Kapoor, Himmat Singh’s girlfriend, Kali Prasad Mukherjee and, Parmeet Sethi were supportive.
Special Ops 1.5 is nail-biting, reality-based action thriller that is going to give you goose bumps. Go for it — Gripping 3.5/5
