Can someone’s biopic can be interesting and nail biting? Yes it can if it’s about Pablo Escobar. You read it right! It’s about the drug lord’s life events. The Narcos team got everything right about this. It’s a Netflix Original that nailed even the top TV players. The way Pablo Escobar is portrayed in this show is something that is extremely brilliant. This show is well praised for its portrayal of real events and not just protraying Pablo Escobar as a cruel person. It also shows his love and affection towards his family and his wife especially. The best part of the series is when they start portraying the downfall of Pablo Escobar. At some points, they make you feel bad for his life and for his downfall and you may even start supporting his actions. The narration of this series is also something that has to be praised.
1. Insanely addictive screenplay. Personally I have never seen a more exciting biopic in my life.
