The role—or perhaps we should say the perception—behind any successful project is its creative brains. Ritesh Sidhwani, the creative mind who was responsible for the development (together with the writer) of the successful shows like Made in Heaven, Mirzapur and Inside Edge has a vision that keeps up with the demand of the people.
It’s his vision and understanding that has garnered rave reviews and appreciation amongst the audiences for his projects and that has also led to fetch IMDb ratings of 8 and above, which is commendable. Some of his most successful shows include:
Made in Heaven:
With an IMDB rating of 8.3, this show has been the talk of the town ever since its inception. Made in Heaven revolves around Tara (Sobhita Dhulipala) and Karan (Arjun Mathur), and their wedding planning company that targets the city’s uber-rich. Scattered over 9 episodes, every episode introduces a new family and brings to light their stories.
Led by an ensemble of exemplary actors and unconventional script, Mirzapur is based on the crimes of a small town. The story revolves around self-proclaimed king of Mirzapur , Akhandanand Tripathi (Pankaj Tripathi), whose business of manufacturing carpets has earned him the name Kaleen Bhaiyaa (kaleen is carpets, bhaiyya is brother). However, under this business he runs an empire of drugs and weapons trade that has made him a millionaire and earned him the fear and following of the town. This small city potboil crime series is a game changer in terms of content and marks an 8.5 rating on IMDB.
Inside Edge 2:
Based on the politics in the game of cricket, no wonder this show has found the right place in the hearts of the audiences. Inside Edge tells the story of the fictional PPL team the Mumbai Mavericks, including its players and coaches of the team, their respective friends and family as well as other influential people associated with the game.The second season adds some spice to the drama by portraying episodes of match fixing, doping, illegal batting etc. While the fans await season 3, the second season holds 8 ratings at IMDB.
The act of being a creative mind is often not as glamorized or sought after but it’s the key component for getting any project made with the right ingredients and Ritesh Sidhwani surely aces at it. With his vision and eye for pathbreaking narratives, Ritesh not only brings the best on the digital format but also on the big celluloid.
