Special Ops 1.5 Trailer was released on 12 October.
Best things from the Trailer:
- Special Ops 1.5 Trailer looks good and stylish with some cool action sequences.
- It is a prequel mini-series but still the production quality is excellent as the 1st season and we should expect another cracker of the series.
- Series looks finely colorful too and we should appreciate the cinematography of the series
- Acting of all the actors looks good and I don’t think we will face any problem on that front.
- Series release is quite near and will be released on 12th November.
- Aftab Shivdasani in a role of a RAW officer will be a breath of fresh air.
- Another Neeraj Panday gem is on the cards.
Worst things about the Trailer:
- Himmat Singh’s young face looks like a slightly fake one, further work of VFX could have made him flawless but the body language of a young officer is on point.
Special Ops 1.5 is a series about the young days of Himmat Singh as a RAW Agent.
Abbas Sheikh(Vinay Pathak) is being questioned by investigators about the young life of Himmat Singh as they are investigating the corruption charges on Himmat Singh. Himmat Singh had resigned in his earlier days because he was not able to utilize all the resources due to the internal politics of the organization and the lethargic working of the government machinery.
When most of the RAW officers were honey-trapped by the foreign agencies, Himmat Singh was again asked to rescue the agency from the peril He along with Aftab’s character starts a journey to fulfill the mission of rescuing Maninder Singh, a national threat to our Country.
The exact Plotline will be updated after the release of the web series.
