Shiksha Mandal Series Verdict

In India, we have seen many educational scams coming out in the past few years. Be it the engineering colleges scams or any other entrance exam scams, the news gets vanished very soon, as these scams are been under some powerful politicians. This series is made on the concept of Medical entrance scams based on some real-life incidents. Choosing such a controversial concept and making it look real on screen is not that easy. But this series is successful in engaging the audience with its raw and realistic approach to the scam.

When it comes to acting, Gulshan Devaiah once again proved that he chooses the subjects that better suit him and has some worthy stuff to watch. He was brilliant as usual. Gauahar Khan looks okay in a few scenes. It is Pavan Raj Malhotra, who will be remembered after watching this series. His performance is one of the major highlights of this series. He can fit into any kind of role and give his best. It is sad to see such talented actors have been getting ignored for mainstream movies. All other actors did their part well as required for the series.

Technically Shiksha Mandal looks good. The music of this series is okay and suits the mood of the genre chosen for this series. The cinematography handled by Subhransu is good, though the series is shot in Bhopal and its surrounding locations, we can sense the dark environment that is usually seen in some crime-prone places in India.

Director Syed Ahmad Afzal should be appreciated for his writing and the realistic approach toward the content, not adding many commercial elements.

Overall, Shiksha Mandal is worth streaming series for its taw content and realistic making.
