Mumbai Diaries:- It’s a tough show, done with a lot of blood and sweat, and it shows on the screen, but in an attempt to cram in too much action and drama, Mumbai Diaries ends up being a never-ending story of vapid people rather than a gripping thriller about a life-changing genuine event. Hard-hitting and raw, but fails to capture the 26/11 scale.
Critic’s Rating: 3.0/5
Mumbai Diaries Story:
Mumbai Diaries 26/11 is a fictionalized account of the city’s most heinous terror attack on November 26, 2008. The program tells its tale from the point of view of a government hospital that becomes a battleground for cops, physicians, and terrorists.
Mumbai Diaries Review:
The date of 26/11 is forever ingrained in the minds of Mumbai residents as the day when the city’s legendary spirit was brutally attacked from across the border. And, as a journalist who covered the terror attacks on September 11th nonstop for three days, I can certainly tell that what happened in those frightening nights of actual horror was much more gut-wrenching and dramatic than any representation on screen. Mumbai Diaries is no different. The story’s most revealing picture is introduced by directors Nikhil Advani and Nikhil Gonsalves. That shows terrorists firing shots at journalists from a moving Mumbai police van at a Metro movie signal.
Many similar imageries from the genuine incident are replicated as the program unfolds, and the authors (Yash Chhhetija, Nikhil Gonsalves, and Anushka Mehrotra) add a lot more ammunition to their partially fictitious screenplay. But therein lays the crux of the matter.

It’s already a difficult task to do justice to such a fast-paced event, which Mumbai Diaries only manages to achieve in bits. The program spends the rest of its time juggling too many subplots and backstories. The majority of them never come off as trustworthy or credible. All they do is pull a chaotic and hectic story into an infinite cycle of several people, their connections, and issues that are difficult to keep track of, let alone care about, after a while.
It seems compelled to add additional drama to real-life tragedies like the deaths of heroic police officers.
However, the program does provide a detailed depiction of a terrifying night when things go badly wrong. A lot of what happened in those evenings is relentlessly chronicled, and some of it lands with conviction. The backdrop of a dilapidated government hospital (by Priya Suhas) is emblematic of the time’s deteriorating healthcare infrastructure, which was unable to cope with such a massive onslaught. The entire tone of the program is gloomy, and there is a lot of violent action, so it is not for the faint of heart.
Despite a large number of performers in this web series, most of them are given adequate screen time, although not all of it is entertaining. Dr. Kaushik, played by Mohit Raina, is a well-cast character, although his past and interpersonal troubles appear contrived. Konkona Sen Sharma, like many other characters that provide little more than duration and clichés, is completely squandered in a part that has no genuine purpose. In the manner it’s done and written, Shreya Dhanwantary’s nosy and inquisitive reporter act is repetitious, callous, and infantile. The same can be said about Vasundhara Kaul, who portrays her employer. It’s past time for filmmakers to stop treating journalists and other members of the media as caricatures.
It is one of the greatest online shows India has ever made. This series has been rated higher than other web series due to its gripping screenplay and great acting…
