We believe the series is a must-watch, and not that we need more reasons to convince you guys, but here are 5 reasons you NEED to watch ALTBalaji’s latest release Cartel.

Brilliant Performances

The cartel has undoubtedly been one of ALTBalaji’s largest and most ambitious projects. This magnum opus was shot with over 137 actors with speaking parts. Yes, you read that right! The star-studded cast’s performance has been widely acclaimed and it includes actors such as Supriya Pathak, Tanuj Virwani, Jitendra Joshi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Pranati Rai Prakash, Divya Agarwal, Girija Oak Godbole, Jitendra Joshi, Amey Wagh, Monica Dogra, Tannishtha Chatterjee, and others. This brilliant cast is one of the many reasons you shouldn’t miss out on the show.

Nerve-wracking climax

Cartel’s storyline has been described as a thrilling journey full of twists and turns by critics as well as fans. We all know that the journey is always more important than the destination. Every episode of this show is an experience in itself. However, the show includes its own unique and unexpected climax. Everyone has been talking about the climax that has left everyone bamboozled, to say the least. And we aren’t giving you any spoilers, but if you haven't watched the show yet, you are missing out a lot.

Action-drama Sequences

Filled with power-packed action scenes and drama, Cartel delivers brilliant dialogues, countless action sequences that will keep you at the edge of your seat. One can't deny that all the episodes are whistle-worthy. Whenever Tanuj Virwani as Major Bhau packs a punch, we all drooled a little, and whenever Jitendra Joshi as Madhu Bhau got his rage, we all felt that.


Rithvik Dhanjani in an interview said that the show is the Mughal-e-Azam of current times. And we agree to it. The show has a massive star cast, lavish sets (realistic though), and humungous moments that will leave a lump in your throat. Every character has impactful dialogues which one can’t miss. “Goli kahi se bhi chale, marta toh koi apna hi hai”, “Harna buzdili nahi, har maan lena buzdili hai”, "Humare dhandhe mein kahaniyaan sirf shuru hoti hain” are dialogues you will start using in your daily lingo for extra dramatic effect. ;)

Visually Appealing

The other strong aspect of the show is the cinematography. Right from the beginning, the makers have taken pains to ensure authentic sets and locations, great camera angle, and movements that enhance the story-telling weaved in with an impactful background score makes it worth a watch. Each episode will take you by surprise as the subplots unfold with every scene.

Cartel continues to do exceedingly well and the love from the viewers has been pouring in immensely ever since the release.
