Amazon Prime’s Farzi Review

Sunny, played by Shahid Kapoor, hit a home run. Shahid is Farzi’s soul, around whom the entire plot revolves. The actor gave it his all, whether it was comedy, emotion, action, or romance. Shahid looks fantastic in the show, and he will undoubtedly receive a standing ovation for his performance. Furthermore, the filmmakers have addressed a few social issues through Shahid’s character. Special mention should be made of Bhuvan Arora, who played Shahid’s friend.

When a show or film is created by a group of artists, it is difficult to strike a balance between all of the characters. However, Raj and DK have excelled in this area. Every character in the show plays an important role. Every character has a purpose and relevance, whether it’s a henchman in Kay Kay Menon’s gang or a lady who wants to break up with her boyfriend because of his socioeconomic status. Vijay Sethupathi is a sea of talent, and he delivers another spectacular performance in the show. He is intense as the task force officer, and the impact would have been even greater if a different artist had played it. His comedic timing is sure to make you laugh.

Raashii Khanna plays a pivotal role, and she excels in it. She was given more opportunities to perform, and the actress was excellent in the role. Kay Kay Menon is excellent as the villain. The cat-and-mouse game between cops and gangsters will keep us entertained for the most part. They are well-written and contain logic. The scene in which Shahid and his gang break into a paper factory for robbery is absolutely hilarious. There are many such delightful scenes, not just one. The action sequence is also well-conceived and well-executed.

All in all, Farzi on Amazon Prime Video is a must-watch.
