Pawan Malhotra has played a Sardar character so many times in the last few years that he cannot believe that he is not a Sardar. Pawan is such an actor that watching him is like attending an acting school. He was in the role of Tiger Memon in Black Friday. It seemed that maybe Tiger Memon would be like this. Sometimes the road raider, sometimes the goons, sometimes the sports coach, and sometimes the inspector, Pawan takes every role inside himself. He has also played the character of Omkar Singh very well. What does a father go through to save his family and yet never sees a sense of guilt on his face. Wind is amazing. His eyes speak. Anxiety, frustration, grin, and how many expressions are visible on his face with all his enthusiasm. In the role of his wife, Supriya Pathak has played her as a wife in acting. Sometimes Supriya becomes the laugh of Khichdi and sometimes the dreaded Dhankor Ba in Ramlila. In each of her characters, Supriya has spread the entire rainbow of acting. In this web series in the role of Sargun, this art has been achieved by watching Supriya lose her brain balance, her heavy body, addiction to sweet food, injection of insulin and watching her husband commit one after the other murders in front of her eyes. It will be easier to understand the depth of. Ranvir Shorey’s role is small but he does wonders with his eyes. Paramvir Singh Cheema has impressed in the role of Lucky, a good and honest inspector.

There are some flaws in the script as well. Some characters are useless. Despite all this, the actors who have been chosen for each character are amazing. The casting is done by Mukesh Chhabra and he is considered the champion of casting in such dark and thriller dramas. There was no possibility of taking care of the timeline in the script. Everything gets done very easily. The first murder is done by mistake but all the subsequent murders happen with planning. No preparation was done for all this and suddenly the circumstances become favorable for Omkar. It also has poison which is found in blister packs like medicine and the poison can be mixed with water. Happy means Gagan gets hurt in his leg which is not cured in the whole series but he walks, scooters, drives a car, and also robs the bag from the girl’s shoulder while riding a motorcycle. Due to some such incidents beyond logic, trust in the story starts decreasing but Pawan and Supriya make him cross the Vaitarni with their acting. The ending of the story is poignant.

Just as in Drishyam, Ajay Devgn fools the police by adopting all kinds of tricks for his family, the basic story in Tubbar is the same, only Omkar Singh’s character goes on destroying his family’s opponents without any sympathy and sympathy. Omkar gets scared in Tubbar. The music of the web series is by Sneha Khanwalkar. Sneha had traveled to the towns of Punjab for the MTV show “Sound Tripping” and gained a great understanding of the music there. The songs written by Baba Farid, the Muslim saint of Pakistan, who is considered the father of Punjabi language literature, have been used very beautifully in the gurdwara’s shabad and kirtan. There is another amazing artist behind the camera – Arun Kumar Pandey. All the shots are kept very tight. The camera is placed close to the faces and because of this you can read the tension on the faces and it also creates stress on your mind. Arun’s camera work has to be praised because in every frame you will see only the important things. Editing by Parikshit Jha is very good but due to the cinematic liberty taken in the story, such scenes have to be kept which there is no reason to trust.
