“She is the female version of Shah Rukh Khan,” said a Twitter user about Jennifer Winget’s portrayal of military lawyer Monica Mehra in the recently released ZEE5 and ALTBalaji Original Code M. The eight-episode long web series is a courtroom drama set against an Army backdrop. Tanuj Virwani, seen in ZEE5 Original Poison, plays the role of a legal counsel Angad Sandhu in the digital drama that stars renowned actor Rajat Kapoor as Colonel Suryaveer Chauhan, Monica’s senior. The narrative revolves around a seemingly open and shut case that Monica is asked to investigate since it involves the death of Col. Chauhan’s future son-in-law and two suspected terrorists. Monica’s investigation leads her to open a can of worms that were invisible at first.
The web series has been very well-received by everyone including the fans and critics. Leading portals like Hindustan Times in its review of Code M said, “The eight-episode series is crisp and cracking. Despite the show having a lot on his hands — a cold-blooded murder, encounter, same-sex love, casteism, terrorism and smuggling – it juggles the myriad aspects well.” Koimoi.com rated Code M 3 stars, “The story packs the punch, it’s bold and doesn’t hold itself back from saying what it wants to say. Something which is worth appreciating.” Rushabh Dhruv in his review of Code M for Latestly.com rated it 3.5 out of 5 stars and opined, “Code M is a great attempt in the world of series which sees a unique story with a female protagonist. Nevertheless, it’s a show with a message intact along with a terrific lead like Jennifer Winget. She is indeed the S(h)ero in this one.” Cine-tales.com rated it 3 stars and praised the actors’s performances, “Jennifer Winget looked promising on her digital debut and gave a strong performance.”
Code M was even ranked as the no. 1 web series in the IMDb list.
#CodeM at No.1 on the IMDB list. Congratulations to the entire team…
