Story Review – Bose: Dead or Alive WebSeries
In the second part of the web series Bose: Dead and Alive, we get to see a shadowy figure of a man. whose face is hidden under a large cap and is covered with a long scaly beard. Looks like a secret covered in cigarette smoke The cigarettes in his hands seem to be clues to his identity.
Till now he was sometimes seen sharing cigarettes with his jailer in jail and also a young girl is seen sharing cigarettes with him at the matrimonial meeting, She is very beautiful and it is a pleasure to see her. After he died in a plane crash in Japan it was discovered that he was Bose.
After all this, the most wanted person of the British is Bose whom they want to get. There is a thriller feel to it which sets the whole ambience in the title soundtrack with the beats of “Bose…Bose…Bose..” ALT Balaji’s 9-part web series Bose Dead or Alive explores the mystery behind his death with a dose of entertainment.
Anuj Dhar’s book is the biggest cover-up and with Hansal Mehta as the creative producer, the series is written by Reshu Nath, Which does a lot of work to show the story in a good way in this series. Whereas the first episode seems a bit rushed and even suddenly feels difficult. An English song is used and the series again quickly traces the losses of Bose’s rebellion, which will leave you feeling a different thriller. Does the series show patriotism and sacrifice for the country in a good way, which will touch the heart of the people?
Sample These : Bose: Dead or Alive WebSeries
– I have the freedom to leave my job. When asked why he left a reputed Indian Civil Services job, Subhash Chandra Bose said “Don’t do Chakri, have to do revolutionary”. Bose’s introductory scene at President’s College shows him beating up a British professor the name of that British professor is Zacharie coffin. Naveen Kasturia has been best cast as Bihari – a pleasant villain.
The British are now afraid of this Indian revolutionary man Bose, who has become careful about him. Bosses do not limit themselves to revolutionary slogans or bow their heads, but they train the youth to fight with sticks and build an army. Calcutta will be too small for my army, Bose warns British corporate head Stanley(a good looking Edward sonnenblick).
After that, as history finally saw it, Bose gave a facelift to the mighty boys in the Indian National Army in South East Asia. Everyone saw the Second World War fight against the British. The use of Bihari as a narrative thread and as a representative of individual British officers was told in flashback that all this adds an interesting equation to Bose’s story.
This gives us his visit as Congress President in 1938 in various jails whose names are – leads to many theories of their whereabouts in Japan, Germany and Manchuria. The series is rich in its production design, In which there are costumes and props of the 30s and 40s (especially a telephone operator’s office) Which creates an authenticated setting. In this, the look of Rajkummar Rao is designed very carefully and well.
Which ranges from a man with short, puffy cheeks, coarse sand to a naturally shaven head for his baldness. The script also weaves humorous yet romantic scenes between Bose, his wedding date Nandini, and his alleged German wife, Emilie. About whom it is believed that he had kept 165 letters from Bose. Both the women called him their first love. Played an important role in the freedom struggle of his country.
Bose’s Alleged Encounter
This web series also points to the political divide between Nehru and Gandhi, including the encounter of Bose. As a British officer asked Nehru if Bose was alive and returned then who will be the prime minister, It is like fertile ground for further conspiracies. Although it is too clear and not enough research has been done, at least not in the first episode.
However, the mystery of whether Bose is alive or dead is well entrenched in this story. The main strength of this series lies in maintaining the heroic character of Bose and the spirit of immortal patriotism. The sad part is that it doesn’t have as much depth in its historical politics as it should have. The creators have enough to see in its next season.
