India’s first Amazon Original web series, Inside Edge, is the story of the Mumbai Mavericks, a T20 cricket franchise playing in the Powerplay League. Set in a landscape of conflicting interest, here sex, money, and power are mere means to an end. ‘Come witness the game behind the game’ reads their tagline and truly they do a successful job of exposing the underbelly of what was once considered the gentlemen’s game. Few moments appear to be so real that they almost hint at moments we have read about in the news.
While telling a story about corruption in cricket, the web series might act as another platform for Vivek Oberoi, Richa Chadha, Sanjay Suri, Sayoni Gupta, Angad Bedi, to showcase their skills. Each actor manages to owe their moment as they seem to be completely immersed in their own respective characters
While being asked on his character Vivek Oberoi asserts “It is absolutely a fictional story. We always encapsulate functionality. What is the game behind the game. Exploration of the game excites. Will watch India vs Pakistan. We watch foreign shows, Inside Edge is a content which will make everyone proud.’
Similarly Richa Chadda clarifies “Richa: I’m playing an actress, a team owner, show not inspired on anyone’s life. Comparisons are bound to happen.”
Farhan Akhtar candidly shares his dream : I’m waiting for Amazon to come and say, “We’re making spider man in Hindi. I would want to make a biopic on anyone who’s inspiring. Maybe on Kapil dev, some day.”
Angad ads : My role of the team’s captain stems from my father Bishan Singh Bedi (former Indian Cricket team’s Captain)
