Neeraj Pandey’s creation is Inspired by the real terror attacks that India has faced over the last 19 years!
Mumbai, 25th February 2020: 19 years. 12 Countries. 6 Agents. 1 Mastermind. Hotstar Specials, along with Friday Storytellers, is set to launch the biggest spy action thriller of 2020. This fast-paced 8-episode series is based on the role of Indian intelligence in a series of real terror attacks that India faced over the last 19 years. Starting with the 2001 attack on Indian Parliament, the show goes back and forth in time covering several other events including 26/11, Kashmir terror attacks amongst others; and the chase for the single mastermind behind these attacks – making it the longest manhunt in Indian Intelligence for India’s deadliest enemy.
Hotstar Specials presents Specials Ops is slated to release on 17th March 2020 in seven languages on Hotstar VIP.
Actor Divya Dutta said, “Specials is about the longest manhunt against India’s biggest enemy – terror itself. The dynamics of the series, the treatment, sharp writing and a fast-paced storyline promises to make it an edge-of-seat series that’s never been seen on Indian screens. Even with a massive ensemble cast, every character in Special Ops is nuanced, intricate and well thought out. The way the story moves back and forth in time, while capturing real emotions is what adds to the grit of the show.”
The world of Special Ops takes us through a journey of Himmat Singh a R&AW Agent. Very soon in his career he draws up an analogy about the several terrorist attacks that have been occurring in the country. Based on some proof and actual study of various attacks and their modes operandi, he is convinced that a man named Ikhlaq is the real mastermind behind all the terror attacks. Himmat deploys a team of remarkably skilled agents – Farooq, Ruhani, Juhi, Bala & Avinash – as his task force. Disguised and living in different parts of the world, the team’s sole objective is to get one step closer to the mastermind.
Will the Special Ops team be able to save India from its biggest enemy?
