November Story (2021): Good Whodunit Keeps You Hooked

November Story – this Tamil crime drama was filmed during the coronavirus pandemic. Tamannaah Bhatia is the protagonistic, as she tries to save her father and find out the real killer in the Southern India show.

In this mystery thriller, she plays the role of an ethical I.T. hacker Anuradha Ganesan. She gets involved in a murder case, as her father Ganesan is a prime suspect in the murder mystery. To further complicate the matter, her father suffers from Alzheimer’s disease too. This series has all the famous South Indian masala – thus making it a good whodunit show.

November Story (2021) mini-series:- short review

This being a murder mystery mini-series, I do not wish to spoil it for those who have not seen it, by either divulging too much information about its storyline or its suspense inadvertently. The director of this series has kept things lifelike and realistic. I can say that despite its unhurried pace, it’s a compelling murder mystery in the Tamil language.

In addition, this show has an admirable ensemble cast of accomplished actors that include Tamannaah, G.M. Kumar, Pasupathy, Aruldass, Vivek, Myna and others. While playing these realistic characters, all of them have done a splendid job. The depths of their acting skills are on display in this show, besides the added bonus of its tightly woven whodunit crime tale; all of these make it an engrossing mini-series to binge-watch.

Focus:- actress Tamannaah Bhatia

Tamannaah Bhatia plays Anuradha – the lead actor in this crime series. This is the first time, I have seen her work in a Tamil series, and she has played the character of an everyday Chennai girl with conviction. Explaining her part in the series, Tamannaah also said in her interviews, “Anuradha can be your neighbour. Ordinary people when put in extraordinary situations can really do things that are beyond their imagination. So this is one of those characters.”

I have never been a part of a crime thriller before. So, the genre for me is new and it got me to explore primarily a father-daughter relationship. There were many angles to this as to why it became unique and new for me, and it was literally like keeping the tension going through the show in every scene. It was challenging and I had never done that in my career.
