Manoj Bajpayee is a star for quite a while, delivering great performances. Rensil D’silva, the director of Dial 100 New Web Series 2021, seems to be continuing this streak. New Web Series 2021 has a running time of fewer than two hours and stars Sakshi Tanwar and Neena Gupta in prominent roles. Manoj Bajpayee, a Senior Police Inspector Nikhil Sood, works in the emergency room. He is a police officer, but he also serves as a loving father to his 18-year-old son.

The screenplay starts on a high note and builds as it continues. The thriller becomes predictable after about an hour. There are unexpected twists and turns. The strong performances by Dial 100 are what really stand out. This talented cast does an excellent job at keeping your attention and keeping it going until the end.
Latest Web Series 44-minute run time begins with Sood receiving a call from a woman attempting suicide early in his night shift. This one call changes everything. It connects Sood, his wife, and his teenage son in an unimaginable situation.
Manoj Bajpayee plays the role of a police officer and his father makes it relatable. Sakshi Tanwar, who only gets a small amount of screen time, does her best and stands out. We are used to seeing her deliver amazing performances on Dial 100. This veteran actress doesn’t have enough material to chew on and delivers a disappointing performance. As expected, the film’s supporting cast plays their roles as well.
Neena Gupta’s unpredictable Seema Pallav gives you chills. However, she emotionally connects with you as the grieving mother who seeks revenge for her son’s death. Gupta is a master at her role but once she reveals her motive, she keeps a poker face all the time. Sakshi Tanwar is limited in screen time, but she steals the show, especially the scene where her heart breaks. Character development is well-done and you will want to stay with them for the entire time.
Latest Web Series builds towards a good suspenseful finale, forcing the protagonist into the shoes of the woman he is trying to conquer all night. It clearly demonstrates the difference between his professional and personal lives and forces him into difficult decisions. Dial 100 is a predictable thriller that Rensil D’silva delivers, but it also features strong performances that make it worth a watch.
