Mukhbir Review: When speaking about Mukhbir- The Story of A Spy, Prakash Raj and Adil Hussain maintained that the web series is their tribute to the unsung heroes of India. While men and women at the borders are credited for their adulation and commitment to the country, not many take into account the ones to cross borders to safeguard lives in their native lands. Zee5’s new show Mukhbir is just that.
At a time when OTT is a crowded space with genres and multiple releases, it is indeed difficult to pick and choose a title for the weekend. Mukhbir can easily be on your list. The story is straightforward, the soundtrack is fabulous and the actors have the capability to hold the audience through the eight episodes.
Zain Khan Durrani plays the role of Kamran, a young, shrewd, no-strings-attached kind of guy. He isn’t darting for something extraordinary but is surrounded by people with great ambitions. He has been working for KSK Murthy (Prakash Raj) as a small-time spy in the city without realising the senior agent’s plans. During the tense notes of the 1960s, Kamran is asked to cross borders, be in Pakistan and give intel on warring situations. Be it his imbecility or Murthy’s pep talk, he decides to take the plunge and becomes Harfan.
