State of Siege 26/11 – What is it all about?

As I mentioned earlier, I’m mostly inclined towards the serials which are inspired by real-life stories. State of Siege 26/11 depicts the incident of Mumbai blast that took place on 26 November, 2008. More than 170 people died in the unfortunate attacks, which lasted between 26 and 29th of November and included a blockade of the Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai.

We all have heard about this terrifying incident but only a few people know, what has actually happened. This series covers some of the key details of the case, which most of us don’t know.

The story begins with how terrorists entered Mumbai and were determined to kill ruthlessly and created the chaos. These terrorists were well-trained and highly motivated to create terror in the entire country by killing people in Mumbai. The scenes in the teaser show the terrorists entering the city via CST Station and then the hotel. This looks so real that it sends a tremor of shock to the nerves. 

The series also tells the untold stories of the NSG commandos who were deployed on the site during the attack. While the local police failed to control the entire situation despite all their efforts; NSG (National Security Guard) commandos fought with courage and saved thousands of lives.

Lots of people still think that NSG commandos were late in reaching the site and taking the action. The show seems to shed light on that matter as well and tells us what actually happened at that point of time. The show also shares how media was blamed for disclosing the details of security operations to the terrorists.

The story is based on the book – Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11 by Sandeep Unnithan. The show appears gripping and thrilling. It is shedding the light on previously unknown facts about the attack.

The Star Cast of the Show

The star cast of the State of Siege 26/11 is quite impressive. You can see some of the well-known actors including Arjun Bijlani, Vivek Dahiya, Mukul Dev, Sid Makkar, Arjan Bajwa and Tara Alisha Berry amongst many others, showcasing their best performances. All of them have done justice to their characters to make it look realistic. They all have already shown their brilliant talent and performances through their previous works.

Show is produced and created by Abhimanyu Singh (Contiloe Pictures) and co-created and directed by fantastic director Matthew Leutwyler.

ZEE5 is a High Definition Web-based platform streaming number of high quality, original content. Like many other amazing series, I am anticipating the State of Siege 26/11 to be one of the finest series on this channel. The best part about the web-based series is that you need not wait till the next day for watching the next episode. You can watch the entire series in one go; anytime and anywhere. Premium membership of ZEE5 is worth the money as there are a number of series and movies on the channel. The content is available in many languages along with the sub-titles.

Bottom Line

The upcoming web-series State of Siege 26/11 appears to be a gripping thriller that gives an insight into the heart-breaking Mumbai Blast (2008). In the show, we can see the entire situation from the NSG perspective. There was much more to it than we all read in the newspapers and saw in the news. So, if thrillers and real-life stories that appeals to you; State of Siege 26/11 is a “must watch” series. The show is scheduled to go live on ZEE5 from 20th March 2020. Do watch the teaser of the State of Siege 26/11 and share your opinion about the show.
