Farzi Full review. Vijay Sethupathi Sets The Bar High, Shahid Kapoor’s Performance Is Remarkable
Farzi Full review
Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s second major OTT release, ‘Farzi’ is an immersive dive into the murky world of counterfeit currency. This thriller series, streaming on Amazon Prime Video, is a slow burner, as the pace takes time to pick up. Farzi is an introduction to the rise of a villain who is also the hero and might appear in Raj & D.K’s illustrious universe ahead.
The Family Man directors duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s second major OTT release Farzi (meaning fake), which is an immersive dive into the murky world of fake currency that keeps you hooked in all the videos.
Farzi is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video from today is a slow burner, as the pace takes time to pick up. The most interesting part is that once you complete the series, you will end up with doubting the authenticity of the ₹500 note sitting snugly in your wallet.
That’s because the creators of the show go into a lot of detail explaining the intricate process of how fake bills are crafted. Be it the special kind of paper used to make a fake ₹500 note to copying the Gandhi portrait, the design and watermarks of which require an artist’s touch. The series also shows how the bills are printed in foreign countries in big presses, smuggled into India and stealthily distributed in the market with none the wiser.

Shahid Kapoor is outstanding in the entire series and is the centre of the show. Shahid Kapoor blends into Sunny quite naturally. The best part is that he picks up the accent effortlessly and the Hindi slangs coming from him don’t look like an out-of-body experience. Vijay Sethupati is outstanding and we cannot think of anyone better than him in this cop role. He performs with so much ease that only an actor of his stature can.
Raashi Khanna does a great job at playing Megha with quite subtleness and not overdoing anything. Amol Palekar gets to play the grandfather and he is adorable as one. A righteous man who hates to take the corrupt route and has the ambition to make a righteous society. Bhuvan Arora is the favourite discovery in Farzi. The actor is so fun and effortless in what he does as Firoz. Kay Kay Menon plays the big baddie and does a pretty good job too.
