Available on: Netflix 

Rating: IMDb- 6.5/10

Seasons: 1

Plot

The show centers around the idea that women can use their bodies to gain anything. A patriarchal setup and awfully misogynistic in nature, this thought still prevails in society. Now, would you judge a female who is trying to save you from heinous crimes, if she is doing the same thing? And oh! this woman also happens to be a cop.                      

The show revolves around Bhumi, a female cop and new recruit of the Anti-Narcotics Bureau. Who has to take down a drug lord and become part of a team trying to free the city from the clutches of narcotics. The show was a refreshing watch, because of how they carry an issue with the stigma against women using their bodies in a way they desire. And how they show us a bad-ass female cop in charge of her own destiny. Also, we get to see the amazing Aditi Pohankar and the writing of Imtiaz Ali come to life. A new and vivid Indian web series on Netflix.
