Rajat Singh, J.N.N. Bard of Blood Review: Emraan Hashmi starrer 'Bard of Blood' was released on Friday (27 September). Emraan Hashmi has made his digital debut with this web series which came under the production of Shah Rukh Khan. This web series has a total of 7 episodes, with each episode being approximately 45 minutes. This is a spy series based on Bilal Siddiqui's novel of this name, which is made in some James Bond style. The series has a dose of thriller, suspense and action.

The story of the series is woven on the life of Kabir Anand, a special detective. Kabir Anand is played by Emraan Hashmi. Kabir is an agent drawn from the Indian Intelligence Wing (IIW), who now teaches English literature in college. Meanwhile, four Indian spies fall under the arrest of 'Taliban' in Balochistan, Pakistan. To rescue them, the main handler of spies, Sadiq Sheikh (Rajit Kapoor), approaches Kabir Anand once again. Sadiq dies before Kabir is ready to go to Baluchistan. To solve the mystery of this death, he undertakes a secret operation with two more jazoos.

The series starts off slow. However, as the episodes progress, the thrill begins to grow. Some episodes in between also slow down. It takes patience to see till the last. The story can be tightened in a better way. It has many loop holes. However, these shortcomings appear to be noticeable. An attempt has been made to save the main character Kabir from becoming a superhero. At the same time, there are some scenes that make people think. For example, three people together easily blow up the oil pipeline. The special thing is that it has tried to show the extent of Balochistan's politics.

This web series also attempts to touch Spy's personal life, but he is included in some scenes. However, the last one seems to see more details about it in the next season. The portion is also not shown in the web series trailer.

Talking of acting, Mukkabaaz fame Vineet Kumar (Veer) has done a great job while staying within the boundaries of the character. At the same time, the acting of Shobhita Dhulipala (Isha Khanna) has appeared average. While his acting in the earlier web series Made in Heaven was highly praised. Apart from this, Jaideep Ahlawat (Shahzad Tanveer) has done a fantastic job as a villain. Kriti Kulhari (Jannat) appears on the screen for quite a while, but is covered as soon as she arrives. Apart from all this, Emraan Hashmi has done well. Such a web series can prove to be important for his career, moving away from the romantic character.

This is an action web series. The action of the web series is largely correct. Most of the time it has been tried to keep it quite realistic, but sometimes the web series feels the impression of traditional scenes of Hindi cinema. Particularly, the scene in which the hero throws a gun and begins to arm Villain. Such scenes in Spy Stories seem ridiculous. Overall this is an average web series that entertains, which does not stay with you. Can be viewed once.
