I've watched upto Wednesday's episode, and I've gotta say, this show is pretty damn good so far.
I can overlook some little things: creative license/tweaking regarding some aspects of 26-11, that the terrorists in New York were ambushed by enforcement officers wearing no protection and not much back up, etc.
But this is an engaging serial which is executed very well. Some of the scenes that otherwise would've looked so fake in Indian serals, well they didn't look so fake here.
The storyline is intriguing from all fronts, as are the characters and the actors.
I hope the story is as well executed as the weeks go by. This is only the first week so the episodes might have been shot in advance. I hope the show doesn't lose its sheen or steam as they will be subject to live shooting, TRPs and time. Well, Sphere Origins did a beautiful job with Gulaal so I have some hope here.
The thing that will be the kicker is how long this show can go on. I would hope they have a good run and then end, rather than elongating it with crazy developments, losing the plot, only to have the plug pulled soon afterwards. But that's a futile hope. What will be, will be.
So I will just watch and enjoy as long as the story is good, and the show is good.
*One thing that's hard to believe is the look alike. I mean, really? But still, we can go with the flow as it's part of the story.
*A question I have regarding Malik's residence. Was Shahana in the UK or the US before she left for India?
