Nowadays audiences are more inclined towards digital platforms. The web-series are gaining popularity because of its strong content and limited episodes. There are so many web-series that caught our attention in the past like Sacred Games, Lust Stories, Mirzapur, The Test Case, Bombers, Coldd Lassi Aur Chicken Masala, etc. Jennifer Winget made her digital debut from ALT Balaji and Zee5 Code M.
Code M Story
The story starts with three army officers gunned down two terrorists and one officer also lost his life. The encounter becomes a talk of the town as the mother of one militant suspect immolates herself in front of army headquarters. Major Monica Mehra played by Jennifer Winget who is also a Military lawyer is appointed for a case of an encounter of two militants suspects. Colonel Suryaveer Chauhan played by Rajat Kapoor calls her from Pune to Jodhpur and appoints her to investigate this case that looks like an open and shut case. But when she starts an investigation and finds the case is not as simple as it is looking. She needs to find the answers to several questions. Were the two militants were only suspect or they were really terrorists? Was the army officer martyred or has been killed? Watch out the web-series to get the answers to these questions.
Code M Review
This web-series has a total of eight episodes and it offers an edge of the seat thriller. Jennifer Winget looked promising on her digital debut and gave a strong performance. Rajat Kapoor and Tanuj Virwani were impressive. Director Akshay Choubey did a decent job. The one thing that disappoints of eight episodes long web-series is the climax. The web-series raises sensitive issues like casteism and homosexuality. But after watching the climax, it does not strikes the right chords. Many of the web-series lovers will like this web-series but if you compare it with the same kind of genre on the army backdrop, no doubt The Test Case starring Nimrat Kaur was the blockbuster. It had a better story, screenplay and even the climax of it do not disappoint. Still, Code M is very much watchable if you like thriller series. But if you have not watched The Test Case, leave everything and watch The Test Case first. We give Code M 3 stars out of 5.
