Farzi is an Indian dark comedy crime thriller web series directed, produced, and created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., also known as Raj & DK. Both of them, along with Sita Menon and Suman Kumar, also wrote the series. The cast of Farzi included Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, Kay Kay Menon, Raashii Khanna, and Bhuvan Arora. Farzi's story is about a frustrated and disillusioned artist who decides to print fake money.

Farzi was first intended to be a film in 2014, but by 2019, it had been developed into a TV series. In July of 2021, production officially kicked off in Mumbai. Locations beyond Mumbai included Alibaug, Goa, Nepal, and Jordan. Songwriter Ketan Sodha worked with musicians Sachin-Jigar and Tanishk Bagchi on the music.

Farzi is connected to Raj and DK's spy series, The Family Man. Season 1 of Farzi was released on February 10, 2023, and you can watch it now on Amazon Prime Video. The season has eight episodes. Shahid Kapoor announced the show's comeback for a second season.


Farzi is about Sunny, an artist who loses hope because he can't keep his grandfather's revolutionary printing press in business. Sunny feels depressed by the inequality of wealth in India, so he and his best friend, Firoz, decide to produce fake currency. Mansoor, a gangster, and Michael, a cop, pose dangers to them.

Farzi was first planned to be a movie by Raj & DK with Shahid Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in 2014. The cast of Farzi also included Kriti Sanon. It turned into a television series in 2019, with Shahid Kapoor still involved. Shahid confirmed that Raashii Khanna had joined the production in January 2021.

In July 2021, the main filming began at Film City in Mumbai. Bhuvan Arora joined the cast of Farzi in September 2021. When Raj and DK were in Chennai filming The Family Man, they offered Vijay Sethupathi a part. He joined the production 40 days after they started shooting. Vijay said that Raashi Khanna, with whom he had worked before in Tamil films, made him feel at ease on set.

Pankaj Kumar was the one in charge of the cinematographer. Goa, Alibaug, Nepal, and Jordan were also places where episodes were shot. Amazon officially revealed Farzi on April 28, 2022, during the launch of 40 Indian projects that the company had approved. Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, Raashii Khanna, Kay Kay Menon, Regina Cassandra, Zakir Hussain, Bhuvan Arora, Amol Palekar, and Kubbra Sait were all officially added to the cast of Farzi.

Farzi Reviews


NDTV's Saibal Chatterjee stated, "thanks to a gripping storyline, the uniformly-paced series sustains its momentum within the individual chapters and across all its eight parts". Chatterjee also complimented Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, and Kay Kay Menon's performances.

Rediff.com's Deepa Gahlot praised Sethupathi and Menon's performances, She called some episodes "adrenaline-pumping" and others "yawn-inducing." The Quint's Pratikshya Mishra called it a "sly, gripping thriller" and said that "the camerawork and editing work hand-in-hand to create a nearly mesmerising experience, mimicking the hypnotic nature of greed, fame, and power."

Farzi has elements of fascinating criminal dramas, according to Sowmya Rajendran, who also considered Kapoor to be "likeable as the anti-hero."


Ormax Media, a consulting company, claims that Farzi became the most-watched Indian streaming series of all time, with an estimated 37 million viewers, beating the record that Rudra: The Edge of Darkness had set.
