I watched the new Indian series; The Railway Men and it was an eye-opener for me. I had only read about the Bhopal Gas tragedy but seeing the series had me in great shock and disbelief, to the extent of the loss and pain.
The show has a great cast Kay Kay Menon, Babil Khan, Juhi Chawla and Madhavan, all spectacular in their roles. This series is informative for all age groups and the 4 episodes are precise and impressive.
The event took place in 1984 and around 500,000 people were exposed to the toxic gas. Due to lack of proper safety measures and lack of training of the staff at the Union Carbide factory, the workers meet a sad fate.
It is terrifying to see death all around. Whether the factory or the locals, the people are mercilessly dying. The city is in ruins and surrounded by death.
Yash Raj Films has created great sets. The hard work of the railway master, Kay Kay Menon and Babil Khan is commendable. Tirelessly they work to shift people.
The saga of unsung heroes is a good watch. If you like this one, you could also watch Chernobyl.
