Rudra – The Age Of Darkness Review

Rudra: The Age of Darkness was waiting for Ajay Devgn. With this series, he has entered the world of OTT. Everything here revolves around Ajay and hence the fans will not be disappointed.

Ajay Devgn becomes DCP Rudra Pratap Singh in Mumbai Police’s Special Crime Unit when, in the first episode of Rudra: The Age of Darkness, he tells his senior (Ashwini Kalsekar), ‘The whole system is on a jumle. It is going on’, so there is a apprehension that this thing may also apply to the series.

Slowly this fear starts to prove to be true. Characters created from existing formulas and rhetoric begin to appear. In Rudra’s six-minute introduction, first of all you understand that this competent officer is incompetent in the system. He is suspended.

An inquiry is set up against him. Then comes such a case that the department does not know any solution other than them. Then he returns. On seeing the incident, he understands the whole matter.

Now the only thing left is to collect evidence against the criminal. You have seen all this in all the crime series so much that you can take a break to yawn.

Another thing that seems like a jumble in Rudra’s fabricated character is his ruined family life. In the last two and a half years, you must have seen more or less this in every police web series.

To end the anger, the writer-director pretends that the honest hero’s wife is having an affair with someone else. The writer-director has gone a step ahead in Rudra. Here Rudra’s wife (Esha Deol) lives in a live-in with a non-man without leaving him or divorcing her.

So this is a new idea. Inspired by the British series Luther, this six-episode Disney-Hotstar series starts off weakly. Rudra knowingly or unknowingly fails to prove the guilt of Aaliya (Rashi Khanna) who killed his parents and pet dog, but in the coming episodes new criminals emerge and present new challenges for Rudra. Huh. These pages, taken from the criminals’ Rudra, make the series a bit worth watching.

There is no doubt that Ajay Devgn is the left-right-centre of Rudra: The Age of Darkness. Yet to enhance Ajay’s prominence, criminal characters are fabricated here, who particularly challenge the police.

Now there is no one ahead of Ajay in the police department. That’s why he comes across as a hero or a superhero again and again in every episode. By rolling the pen in his fingers, he solves the matters in his mind in a pinch.

Overall, this is one such web series, which is for Ajay’s fans and they will enjoy it. But if we go to the texture-texture-story and characters of the series, then the thrill will be reduced.

That means it doesn’t matter. Despite being a hero here, the picture of Ajay’s life is boring, monotonous and worn-out reel. Ajay does not seem to be doing anything different according to OTT.

He incarnates with his film image. In such a situation, it is clear that his intention on OTT is to lengthen the career life line more than to show new charisma in the new ground.
It is not difficult to understand why actors like Atul Kulkarni, Ashutosh Rana and Satyadeep Mishra are shown second class in front of Ajay.

On the other hand, why Esha Deol, who reminded her mother Hema Malini in dialogue delivery, chose this web series to return, can reveal the secret. Except one Raashi Khanna, in the rest of the episodes,

different actors keep coming and going to challenge Ajay by committing crimes. Rashi’s character leaves little impact but after some time she stops adding something new to the thrill of the story.

The series has been shot by spending a lot of money. There is grandeur in it. Camera work is good. But weak writing, sloppiness of direction and lack of tightness in editing dampen its impact.

There is a lot of bloodshed in the series. There is a story of a painter who kidnaps women and drinks their blood, paints paintings on canvas with their blood.

Thus, along with the heroic rasa generated by Ajay’s valor, there is also a lousy rasa in it. The mystery-thriller has more or less stories and the entertainment graph in the series is not the same. He goes up and down fast.

The darkness that has enveloped Rudra’s tag line, especially in the last two episodes, comes to the fore. Rudra goes deep into the same darkness and catches the criminal, but he himself surprises him by twisting the story in a filmy style.

But the shocking scenes have been drawn so long that the audience’s surprise ends. If you are not a fan of Ajay Devgan and you do not love his every act then you cannot trust Rudra with Hundred Percent Entertainment with full confidence.
