Sonali Bendre’s comeback to The Broken News is Highly Appreciated
The Broken News, a web series based on conflicting trends of modern journalism, has become an instant hit after its release on June 10, 2022. This is the OTT debut of the famous actor of the 90s, Sonali Bendre. Within a week of its release, the series surpassed six million views and has been highly acclaimed by both critics and viewers. With BBC Studios as its producer and Vinay Waikul as director, this series is the official adaptation of Press, the famous British TV show.
The story revolves around two conflicting news channels having their office in the same building. One of these channels is named Awaaz Bharti led by Amina Qureshi and played by Sonali Bendre. She is an ethical journalist and believes in the power of journalism as the fourth estate. The opposing channel, Josh 24/7, under the leadership of Dipankar Sanyal played by Jaideep Ahlawat of Paatal Lok fame believes in the sensationalism of news. A young journalist Radha (Shriya Pilgaonkar), despite being an idealist, is caught between the two opposite poles.
Viewers and critics are in total awe of the acting prowess of the lead actors, the plot of the series, and the realistic interpretation of events. Sonali, Jaideep, and Shriya are all overwhelmed by the response and thanked everyone for their love and blessings. The well-thoughtout content, efficient direction, and human touches in the story have made it a successful series. It was a pleasant experience with the suitable portrayal of the character by Sonali Bendre as well as Jaideep Ahlawat and Shriya Pilgaonkar.
