The Railway Men Review: The long-awaited YRF series, “The Railway Men,” finally released today on Netflix, and there are a total of 4 episodes in it. All episodes are around 1 hour long, and they are available in multiple audio versions along with subtitles. The show is suitable to watch with family, and here is a detailed review of it.
The story of the series is based on real-life incidents and starts with a gas leak in the Bhopal Pesticide factory of Union Carbide Limited. The gas is spreading very fast in the city, and the station master of Bhopal Junction has to stop any upcoming trains in Bhopal. He is trying to save as many lives as possible by evacuating more and more passengers from the Bhopal Junction. How will he be able to do so? And what will the government authorities do? To know this, you have to watch the full episode on Netflix.
Starting with the performances, the series is full of power-packed performances. Kay Kay Menon as the Railway Station Master, Babil Khan as Imad Riaz, and Divyenndu as Balwant Yadav are the biggest highlights of the show, and they have nailed their respective roles. Babil Khan is a stunner, and he looks confident; I am very sure that he has a bright future ahead. Kay Kay Menon is brilliant as always, but this one is going to be one of the best from him. Divyenndu nails it in his character too, and he has done a phenomenal job.
R Madhwan, Sunny Hinduja, Juhi Chawla, and Dibyendu Bhattacharya were also amazing in their short but impressive roles. The rest of the actors were equally brilliant, and the show is top-notch in terms of performance.
The best part about the show is its pace and runtime. The show is a no-nonsense thrilling drama, and it will keep you hooked to your seats till the end. The cinematography and set design deserve special mention. The episodes are 1 hour long, but trust me, they are very much in detail, and it looks like you are living in that tragedy.
I am giving 4 out of 5 stars to the series, and the show is surely one of the best shows on Netflix in recent times. The show is a must-watch for everyone, and if you want to watch anything this weekend, you may consider this show.
