Plot : The premise of “Indian Police Force” promises an intriguing storyline centered around a special cell unit combating terrorism in Delhi. Unfortunately, the execution falls flat, with a meandering narrative that struggles to build suspense or explore the complexities of the cat-and-mouse game between the police and terrorists. The predictable plot twists contribute to a lackluster viewing experience.
Star Performances : While the cast includes established names like Sidharth Malhotra, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, and Vivek Oberoi, their performances fail to elevate the material. Malhotra’s usual brooding persona lacks depth, Shilpa Shetty’s action role feels underdeveloped, and Oberoi, though slightly better, can’t salvage the underwhelming script. Mayyank Taandon shines as the antagonist, delivering a nuanced and intense performance that adds some much-needed depth to the narrative. Sharad Kelkar and Mukesh Rishi contribute impactful performances, but overall, the star power falls short of saving the series.
Direction : Rohit Shetty’s transition to the world of web series disappoints, as his signature tropes of over-the-top action and cheesy one-liners feel stale in this longer format. The series lacks the gripping atmosphere and suspense that his films often deliver. The inconsistent tone, predictable character arcs, and uninspiring character development contribute to a lack of engagement.
Others : The action sequences, though decently executed, lack the usual Rohit Shetty flair. However, the cinematography and background score fall short of creating a compelling atmosphere, and the choppy and uneven editing disrupts the narrative flow.

The Last Word: “Indian Police Force” is a disappointing misstep for Rohit Shetty, failing to capitalize on its promising premise. Despite standout performances from Mayyank Taandon and supporting cast members, the series suffers from a predictable plot, weak character development, and an overall lack of engagement. While it offers sporadic moments of entertainment, it is not enough to save the series from its mediocrity. If you’re seeking a gripping cop drama, it’s advisable to look elsewhere.
