The Inside Edge Amazon Prime series

Fans of Indian series have great reasons be excited ahead of the release of The Inside Edge, the first Indian original web series by Amazon Prime Video India in collaboration with Excel Media & Entertainment. The series unearths the ‘dirty games’ behind the passion, courage and love of cricket. Amazon has brought together some of India’s greatest actors to facilitate the exposition of the conflicting interests of the very people who are entrusted with managing ‘the gentlemen’s game’.

The Inside Inside Edge is a story of a T20 cricket franchise called Mumbai Mavericks. With an almost realistic introduction, the series syncs the audience with cricket. It then takes viewers through the ups and downs of Mumbai Mavericks as it participates in the Power play League. It’s an incredibly immersive and entertaining journey through all the drama, power, money, sex, greed and corruption that are used as means to various ends in the world of sports. It’s set in a background so real that the audience can almost relate some of the events with current news.

The series is directed by Karan Anshuman, one of Bollywood’s biggest names. It stars Vivek Oberoi, the menacing mastermind, Richa Chadha (the team’s owner), Tanuj Virwani (team’s star player), Siddhant Chaturvedi (the rookie), Angad Bedi (team captain), and Sanjay Suri (the team’s coach). Sayani Gupta, Sarah Jane Dias, and Amit Sial also play critical roles in The Inside Edge.
