The three episodes provided by the ALT Balaji team make it clear that ‘Dark 7 White‘ is an interesting murder mystery, which will be liked by fans of this genre. But at the beginning of the series, so many characters come together so that the characters have to struggle to keep them apart from each other. The characters and events seem to get tangled over the first three episodes. Apart from Sumit Vyas and Jatin Sarna, no character has emerged. Apart from these two actors, no one else is able to impress in terms of acting.
Since this is a murder mystery, the character and their behavior may change in further episodes, which may spark interest. The writing uses fiercely mixed English profanity and lascivious scenes in order to break through the politics of political politics and make the characters look cool. At the same time, the picture of contradiction also comes out at the ideological level. A sense of guilt about homosexuality has been shown among male characters. While female characters do not miss bras in the air to demonstrate their free sexuality.
The story and screenplay are of Mohinder Pratap Singh and Mayuri Roy Choudhary, while dialogue is by Pranjal Saxena, Shashank Kunwar, and Snehil Dixit. Such words have been used in dialogues and narrations that make Yudhveer’s character move out of the centuries-old groove of the leaders and affect the youth of today. The series is directed by Satwik Mohanty.
