Then this is the real secret of the captain.
15 September 2020 | by ankitdasofficialSee all my reviews

You Season 1 Episode 4

Review : This episode is slow enough and I find this episode a bit boring. The first reason it seems boring is that the story of the episode is a mystery solution but it is not as interesting as it should be. I think somewhere the story has been stretched a bit to make this episode a 42 minute full episode. It is true that there is a bit of a romantic element to this, but the episode is quite boring in all respects.

Acting : All the actors and actresses have shown good enough humility and there is a perfect way in their work.

Direction : Speaking of director intent, I have to say that the director might have done a little better and someone could have made this episode a better one. In my opinion, the director has been a little careless.

Story and Dialogue : The story in this episode is a bit boring, there is a romantic element in the story of this episode, a mystery will be revealed and the real reason for lying will be known. But despite all this, I think some extra things have been made in the story of this episode and some important things have been left out. I think storytellers should have written better stories. Not a very high quality or special eye-catching dialogue is used, the use of fairly general dialogue is observed in the episode No numbers were used in the episode. Fairly good background scores have been used in the episode.

Soundtrack and Background score : No soundtrack were used in the episode. Fairly good background scores have been used in the episode.

Cinematography and Editing : The cinematography and editing are good enough.

Other Departments : Location, lighting, vfx everything is almost fine.

Overall Episode : Judging by all, I gave this episode eight out of ten stars.

Thanks so much for reading my review.
