When it comes to the world of spies and terrorists, Neeraj Pandey sure knows his business. The man has tapped into the genre of espionage thriller with “Baby” (2015), “Naam Shabana” (2017) and “Aiyaary” (2018) on the big screen in the past. He carries the formula into OTT zone this time.
“Special Ops” is a lot like “Baby”, in the way it follows a team of special agents over a period of time as they set out to track a terror mastermind. Only, this time Pandey has stretched the formula across the larger part of eight episodes. Which gives him scope for more meticulous detailing, but it also leaves ample room for a drop in narrative pace every once in a while.
