Minus Points of Farzi review:
The process has been very long. This excessive length will due your effect many times over. At times the series slowed down considerably, and the editing team could even reduce the length to enhance the viewing experience. The mid-section of the series is a bit heavy and could have been better designed as well. The use of language and the presence of excessive violence in several places may be disturbing to some.
The background score by Ketan Sodha is very great and also is the case with Pankaj Kumar’s cinematography in web series Farzi. Raj & Dk have spent a bomb on the web series and it is very clearly show in many frames. Farzi Telugu dubbing version is very good.
Overall, Farzi is going to keep you hooked. And this web series has great performances, good writing, stylish action scenes and comedy as its advantages. Barring the length and the occasional slow pace, the ending is a good watch.
