Tandav is a story that happens in the capital city of the world's largest democracy - DILLI (New Delhi), where it takes you inside the closed, chaotic doors of power and manipulation and uncover the darkest lanes of Indian politics.
Whether set in Westeros or West London, these series explore the dynamics when rival factions battle for control of a kingdom, media empire, or criminal enterprise. Nature abhors a vacuum at the top, but television producers love it.
While modern politics may seem more unpredictable than anything a TV writer could come up with, these shows give reality a run for its money, with fast-paced plot lines around terrorism, corruption, and political scandals.
These shows take their inspiration from the classic soap opera formula of focusing on relationships within families, friends, and co-workers, spicing things up with plenty of intrigue, romance, power struggles, personal feuds, secrets and lies, and periodically lapsing into sentimentality and melodrama.
These series take well-worn themes, like burnt-out detectives seeking redemption, and infuse them with a new energy. Set in India and starring some of Bollywood's biggest stars, shows like Sacred Games and Pataal Lok have been breakout shows.
