Netflix's new web series Jamtara - Sabka Number Ayega starring Amit Sial, Dibyendu Bhattacharya and Aksha Pardhasany has received positive review and ratings. The audience say that it is an eye opener about phishing scam.
Written and directed by Soumendra Padhi, Jamtara is based on true cyber-crimes. Along with their school dropout friends, cousins Sunny and Rocky run a wildly successful phishing scam from the remote village of Jamtara in Jharkhand. Things go awry when the scam gets ousted in a news report. A corrupt politician wants in on their scheme, but a cop wants to fight it.
Analysis: Jamtara is an interesting web series and its realistic narration makes it an engrossing viewing experience. Amit Sial, Dibyendu Bhattacharya and Aksha Pardhasany have delivered brilliant performances, which are the highlights of the film. The movie has good production values and background score and picturisation are the big attractions on the technical front, say the audience.
Scammers have targeted everyone from the tax payers to daily wage workers. Most of them don't register a complaint for two reasons. Firstly, many of them are unaware of cyber laws. Secondly, some of them believe that the police can't help and the chance of recovering hard earned money is low.
Jamtara is now spreading awareness about the scam and many people have started sharing their stories on online phishing. Hence, many audience consider this web series as an eye-opener about phishing scam.
Here are some audience's review of Jamtara:
#Jamtara: this is interesting series to watch. Good one on the current happenings of phishing. Fantastic performances and totally worth.
#jamtara a must watch on #netflix. Composition and screenplay with "close to reality" cast was something which often gets missed out in most of the Indian series. Waiting for season 2 #NetflixIndia @akshapardasany

Binged watched #Jamtara yesterday. It's amazing how a good story is all one needs to make an engrossing viewing experience. Yes it did loose the plot many a times in between and so many open threads, overall it was very engaging. @NetflixIndia

A phishing scam An honest officer's investigation including corrupt politicians & bureaucrats Apart from brilliant performance by @AmitSial @akshapardasany #dibyendu #jamtara is nothin short of a cliche revolves arnd #money & conseq of poor #education @NetflixIndia #webseries
Just watched #Jamtara. #Netflix web series is below average. It's just a cleaner version of Mirzapur. What should have been about credit card scam and fishing soon turns into a predicatable cat and mouse game. Casting and #amitsial are the only good things in the show. #Bollywood
