Crackdown trailer: Saqib Saleem heads this do-or-die mission

The trailer for Voot Select's upcoming espionage thriller web-series Crackdown promises a lot of thrills and action.
The trailer starts by introducing the viewer to India's secret service agency, 'Directorate of Operations', and some of its agents played by Saqib Saleem, Rajesh Tailang and Mohammed Iqbal Khan. Their job is to eliminate threats to the nation before the threats can eliminate them.
Though there are other agents as well, it seems the show mostly revolves around Saqib Saleem and his efforts to stop the next terrorist attack on India.
There is also Shriya Pilgaonkar, who plays a mysterious woman named Divya Shirodkar, whose agenda is dubious, to say the least. She is also seen performing some action bits in the trailer. It will be interesting to see what the motivation of the character is.
Saqib Saleem, who plays a character called Riyaz Pathan, does the heavy lifting at least in the trailer. From his bone-crunching action scenes to his heroic dialogues, the trailer portrays him as a man not to be messed with.
We have seen many films and shows on the India-Pakistan conflict. In the last year alone we had Bard Of Blood (2019), The Family Man (2019) and Special Ops (2020), all of which were based on terrorist attacks and the India-Pakistan conflict. One only hopes that Apoorva Lakhia, who is making his digital debut with this web-series, has given a new spin to this done-to-death plot.
Crackdown will be streamed from 23 September on Voot Select. Watch the trailer below and let us know if you are keen to watch the series.
