You know those films, plays, series, or fictional materials of all kinds that reveal their intentions right from the start? Here, as with almost any intended work, it is born conditioned, with the storyline constantly shaped by the authors’ ideas, intentions, and lessons, turning the characters into vehicles for those concepts.

Now, not everything in life has to be of one color, and not everything in cinema has to mimic Kubrick. Thus, it is also acceptable that certain works have (political) intent.

And, of course, that can be done well or poorly.

In “The Railway Men: The Untold Story of Bhopal 1984,” it is done with style, featuring solid construction and characters who interact with the story to shape a discourse that, although premeditated, demonstrates good development and narratively convinces.

Visually, it is a fine series, with camera movements, impressive production values, and a substantial amount of human content that constantly aims to create an emotional impact.

Our opinion

This series will appeal to lovers of dramas based on real events, as it recreates, with a strong intention to denounce, a dramatic and grave event along with its consequences, seeking culprits and issuing the pertinent condemnation of injustice.

Well-executed in terms of cinematography.
