Commander Karan Saxena

Hotstar is a popular OTT platform that offers a wide range of shows. It has produced some of the highest-rated series like “Criminal Justice,” “Special Ops,” and “Grahan.” Even “Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo” and the recently released “Lootere” did well, garnering good viewership. However, the latest release snippet of the action thriller series “Commander Karan Saxena” doesn’t seem to be promising.

Hotstar released a poorly edited 30-second teaser of the show, featuring the same India-Pakistan trope and jingoistic dialogues. Starring popular television faces Gurmeet Chaudhary and Iqbal Khan in the lead roles, the show seems to offer nothing new, with the same old bare body shots of Gurmeet Chaudhary, unrealistic action, and a half-baked product. This teaser felt almost like a TV serial promotion video. It’s time Hotstar focused more on quality productions.

Though this is just a small teaser, we should wait for the trailer to form a complete opinion. Hotstar itself has produced great action shows like “Special Ops” and “The Freelancer.” If shows like “Commander Karan Saxena” represent the future of Hotstar, no one will take the platform seriously.
