The Broken News Review: The movie is full of thrills. The Broken News, which is being directed by Vinay Waikul, is a formal remake of the well-known British series, Press. The drama, which also features Shriya Pilgaonkar, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Sonali Bendre, centers on two media organizations, their conflicting philosophies, and the way in which journalists handle pressure.
Amina (Sonali), who represents Awaaz Bharati, is a proponent of ethical reporting. She works arduously with her team to give the audience accurate information.
The head of the competing news station Josh 24, Dipankar Sanyal (Jaideep), believes that journalism is just a business. He doesn’t hesitate to embellish facts and narratives in order to increase TRPs.
An investigative reporter for Awaaz Bharati is Radha Bhargava (Shriya). She investigates the incident and finds out something is off when her flatmate, a fellow journalist, is killed in a fire. She makes the decision to look into the matter but comes up empty-handed.
As if that weren’t difficult enough, she now had to cope with her channel head Amina’s difficult decision to publish a piece on sexual molestation.
She leaves her work and joins Dipankar out of a fit of wrath.
But after a day, Radha realizes she doesn’t belong on a news program that is obsessed with TRP. Radha returns to Awaaz Bharati and ends up taking on the role of the channel’s spokesperson.
When Radha returns to the case of her friend’s death, she discovers that it is part of a larger investigation involving politicians and a wealthy entrepreneur.
Because many media outlets believe in sensationalizing news to attract viewers, The Broken News’s plot is quite relatable and current.
The fact that Radha left one channel, joined another, then returned to her previous position in just one day seems weird and implausible.
The Broken News Review
In truth, there are quite a few plot holes, but thanks to the excellent acting, you don’t notice them too much.
The fiery, upright journalist Radha, played by Shriya Pilgaonkar, steals the show.
When she switches to the competing station, you despise her but also comprehend why.
Despite being an ethical journalist, she nevertheless has shortcomings, which gives her persona more humanity.
With the Web series, Sonali Bendre makes her OTT debut and shines, giving a subtle performance. Despite having a solid reputation as an honest journalist, she struggles with leading a double life. Sonali excels in emotional situations, and you can relate to her struggle to maintain order in her work life.
As a cruel journalist who preys on everyone for television ratings, Jaideep Ahlawat excels.
He does have a caring side to him as a parent, but the show primarily focuses on his evil side and doesn’t explore much of it.
The Broken News is a terrific weekend binge-watch with a cast led by strong actors and strong supporting performers.
Even if there are lapses in the tale, you remain interested until the very end.
