Since the release of online streaming platforms in India, the streaming platforms have recorded a great rush in the releases of Indian web series. These web series are truly praiseworthy when it comes to the storylines, direction, and acting.
One such Indian web series, which managed to seize the recognition of a major share of the viewers is Hostages.
Directed by a renowned director, Sudhir Mishra, Hostages is an Indian crime thriller web series.
“Hostages” is an adaption of an Israeli series of the same name.
The show premiered on 31 May 2019 on Hotstar. After it received the positive reviews from the critics and the audience, the producers also released it on Star Plus in April 2020.
The story revolves around surgeon Dr. Mira Anand played by Tisca Chopra.
Dr. Mira’s family gets abducted by gunmen the night before she was about to operate the chief-minister.
Sudhir Mishra has cleverly layered the story with the sub-plots of the individual character of the story running simultaneously.
Each character is facing its issues.
Son of Dr. Mira Anand gets himself into ethical hacking, just to impress a girl. Her husband, who is a school principal is under huge debt, and her daughter is facing an un-wanted teen pregnancy.
Another major role is SP Prithvi Singh played by Ronit Roy. This character is quite mysterious.
SP Prithvi Singh, after his retirement, takes Dr. Mira Anand and her family as hostages.
However, the reason for him taking the family as a hostage is explained as the story proceeds. There are many knots and thoughts stuck which resolves as the story proceeds.
