Hansal Mehta’s directorial, Scam 1992 – The Harshad Mehta Story unfolds a journey of a young lad from the streets of Kandivali to becoming a prodigy at Dalal Street.
Directed by Hansal Mehta, Scam 1992 – The Hansal Mehta Story is currently trending and how! This extra-ordinary show, set in the 1980s and ’90s of Bombay reflects the journey of Harshad Mehta – a stockbroker who was a prominent person in the worlds of the Indian securities industry. The series, which is based on a book named ‘The Scam’ written by journalist Debashis Basu and Sucheta Dalal, has a rating of 9.6 by IMDB and the ones who have watched the series just can’t stop talking about it!
With an exceptional performance by the cast – Pratik Gandhi, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Nikhil Dwivedi, Rajat Kapoor, Sharib Hashmi, KK Raina, Satish Kaushik, Anant Mahadevan – netizens have declared ‘The Scam: The Harshad Mehta Story‘ a hit. This web series is not your regular rags to riches story – but with an in-depth showcase of mechanism in the lines of the law, bureaucracy, corruption, and of course, the stock market.
The protagonist – Harshad Mehta (played by Pratik Gandhi) is a son of a small-time textile businessman based in Kandivali, Mumbai. What follows is the journey of this lower-middle-class young boy who tries everything from local jobs, to selling hosiery and sorting diamonds – eventually developing interest in the stock market. It rages the journey of Harshad who beams proudly with media describing him as – ‘Big Bull‘, ‘Raging Bull‘ and even good – the ‘Amitabh Bachchan of Dalal Street‘, to absolutely tarnishing him to a point where he is convicted in several cases.
Hansal, throughout the series, did not fail to grip the audience while displaying Harshad’s story – an amalgamation of ambition, money and power. Not only did he managed to keep people hooked but illuminate them about the apparatus of our securities and judiciary system. Harshad’s dialogue, “Risk hai to Ishk hai,” now seems to stick with the masses!
Here’s what Tweeple have to say:

Binge Watched "Scam 1992". Incredible story. While India was liberalizing a major scam took the limelight. I wonder how popular he was even Govinda Song "Stop That" in 1995 talks about him. @SonyLIV @suchetadalal

Scam 1992 – What a show. Highly recommend. It's so good that I actually gave money to SonyLIV. I thought it was impossible that I'd ever pay for that app. But good content does that. Riveting stuff.
