The Indian Detective | Netflix | Russell Peters should stick to stand up alone.


I had reasonable hopes on this one since the trailer came out a few weeks ago but I was so disappointed with the end result that i rue the 3 odd hours that i spent watching this mini series. The series offered nothing in terms of comedy, action or for that matter any form of entertainment.

Russell Peters stars as a Canadian police constable Class IV who gets suspended while performing a drug bust which goes terrible wrong due to a unreliable witness. This and the lack of reciprocation of affection from his fellow officer Christina Cole , leads him to fly back to Mumbai to meet his father Anupam Kher , who was hospitalized. From there Doug D’Mello (Russel Peters) get entangled with the business of a lawyer played by Mishqah Parthiephal and the chase is on to catch a drug king pin. 

I should have listened to my better judgement and aborted the ship 10 minutes into the show and ended up regretting not doing that later on. All the characters who spoke a combination of Hindi & English were horrible with the accent and even worse in the acting department. Direction was poor and the script was a patched up version of typical hindi serials which use the period drama dialogue delivery style.

Fans of Russel Perters, I urge you guys to stay away from this if you do not want to end up hating the man. I would not even give it a 1 star out of 5.
