Night Manager 2 screening
Meanwhile, several celebrities attended the recent screening of The Night Manager Part 2 in Mumbai. This included Aditya Roy Kapur, Anil Kapoor and Sobhita Dhulipala, Disha Patani, Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur among others at the event.
The Night Manager is the Indian adaptation of a British mini-series, which was based on a book by John le Carre. The original series featured Tom Hiddleston in the lead role, alongside an ensemble cast which included Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander and Elizabeth Debicki. It was released in the UK on February 21, 2016.
Night Manager 2 review
Created by Sandeep Modi, and co-written by Shridhar Raghavan, the series released on Thursday. While part 1 of The Night Manager was well received by the critics, the review of the new season by Hindustan Times read, “The problem with this two-part distribution and the long wait between them was two-fold. Firstly, the original version, starring Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman and Elizabeth Dickie, is already available in full for viewing in India. Secondly, the Indian adaptation had binge-watch written all over it. Not because it's nail-bitingly edgy and pacey, but one would've preferred to snort it and get it out of the way in one go.”
