The Empire Review (Hotstar): Epic, Grand & One Of The Best Web Series

The Empire Review Hotstar: when I started watching the series I was so nervous about the content quality, VFX, and the performances, but after finishing the series I Must say this series is one of the best web series created in the history of Indian cinema. Here I am going to review the Hotstar original web series The Empire. I am going to talk about the Performance, Plot and a few more details of the series.

The web series stars some talented actors like Kunal Kapoor, Shaban Azmi, Dino Maria, Drishti Dhami, Rahul Dev, and others. The web series is created by Nikhil Advani and directed by Mitakshra Kumar, the series has a total of 8 episodes and each episode is approx 40 minutes in length. All episodes are now available on the Platform. The series has lots of bloodshed and brutal killings, there are few Kissing scenes too, still, you can watch the series with family, but avoid watching it with Small Kids. Here is ‘The Empire’ Review.


The plot of the series is taken from the book Empire of the Moghul by Alex Rutherford, First Volume, the series is the story of Mughal Emperor Babar. The story of the series starts in ‘Farghana’ where Young Babar was sworn as the King after the death of his father. Enemies start conspiracies against Babar and his families to get the crown of Farghana. What happened next and how did Babar manages to build his own great empire, to know this you have to watch the full series on Hotstar.


The ott content is not dependent upon any face value now, first Scam 1992 proved that and now this series is proving it too, there is no one from the A-Listers of Bollywood and still the series is full of Amazing Performances. Dino Morea is a rockstar and this one is his best performance to date, he looks fabulous, his dialogue delivery, expressions, everything looks so authentic and real, he is just living in his character. He is one of the best performers in the series.

This role is going to be the turning point of Kunal Kapoor’s Career, he is too good in the series and this role shows his real potential, the way he talks, the way he walks, and the way he manages his emotions were quite amazing and it was so soothing to see. Drashti Dhami looks good too, she looks stunning, cute and so intense at the same time, she will shock you with her character transformation and she is ruling in the series. Shabana Azmi is brilliant as always. She was very good with her dialogue deliveries.

Rahul Dev and Imaaduddin Shah were one of the major highlights of the series, they give a major boost to the series with their amazing performances. Other actors like Sahher Bamba, Aditya Seal were also good in the role and we hope the next season of the series will be life Changer from Aditya.


The series is full of positives, I don’t know from where I should start. The narration of the story is brilliant, the series is based on history and known events still gives lots of thrill and suspense, the character development of the series was amazing, Each of the characters in the series was explained very beautifully. Now coming to the biggest thing, The VFX, I must say this VFX matched the level of Bahubali and Bahubali 2 and sometimes it exceeds that level too. The war scenes are epic, the locations look Grand and real. There was not even a single frame where the series goes down.

The locations are huge, the VFX makes it look real and the series is made on the Grand Level, the Background music is decent and this is the one and only weakest part of the series. The screenplay is amazing, the editing is mindblowing and the output of the series is terrific.
