Coming back to the series, recently makers unveiled the trailer.
The trailer showcases a tense voyage through several cityscapes, with each frame intensifying the suspense with a ticking bomb clock that eventually ends in devastating bursts.
It begins with an explosion, followed by a conversation from one of the cops claiming that the incident “isn’t an attack on a market, but on our courage and commitment,” motivating fellow officers to quickly conclude the case.
“We don’t play games; the Delhi police ends the game,” states SP Kabir Malik IPS (Sidharth Malhotra), which is echoed by a thunderous “yes sir!” from his subordinates echoing around the police headquarters.
Despite their strong motivation, the trio of Kabir, Tara Shetty (Shilpa Shetty Kundra), and Vikram Bakshi (Vivek Oberoi) struggle to identify the perpetrators, adding to the Delhi Police’s difficulties. Meanwhile, disagreements among team members exacerbate the problem. But don’t worry; the resolute cops refuse to back down and are ready to face the obstacles straight on.
Created by Rohit Shetty, the cop action-drama series stars Sidharth Malhotra, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Vivek Oberoi, Shweta Tiwari, Nikitin Dheer, Rituraj Singh, Mukesh Rishi, and Lalit Parimoo in key roles.
The seven-episode action-packed series, ‘Indian Police Force’ will be out on Prime Video on January 19.
