Promising to redefine the genre of tense cat and mouse thrillers is MX Player’s next urban crime series, Chakravyuh – An Inspector Virkar Crime Thriller. The series sees eccentric Inspector Virkar (played by Prateik Babbar) on a mission to unmask a ruthless blackmailer who uses the dark web and social networking sites to victimise young college students.
Based on best-selling author Piyush Jha’s book called Anti-Social Network, the series will be releasing on March 12.
Directed by Sajit Warrior, the series is an eight-episodic present-day story of an angry cop with his own brand of justice, who stumbles upon a case of ghastly murder. In the process of his investigation, Inspector Virkar comes across a group of tech-savvy miscreants who use the internet for blackmail and other illegal activity. With the help of an informant, a hacker and a student counsellor, Inspector Virkar is focused on finding the missing link.
