It's very intriguing and awesome ,Camera Work is Fascinating

Bard of blood is a total waste of time.

The series is total waste of time.

Its a clean Cut spy thriller that's refreshing and engaging.

Lovely thrilling story and gripping scenes.

intriguing, eager for the second seasons .

Got bored .

Dont waste your time on this .

A total waste of money (for Netflix) and time (for you).

Fast paced and entertaining .

Perfect storyline and entertaining.

The storyline is so well paced and gripping that it hardly gets monotonous midway.

A Pretty Brave Attempt with no story.

I have not read the novel, but if the script has done justice to it; I would say why on earth would someone decide to make it a series -- such pathetically poor and cliche is the storyline...

Soooo Boring.

Series is mind blowing & full of action.

A fast paced spy thriller with cliff hangers at the end of each episode.

Gripping thriller .

Full propaganda movie.

But when I saw it, i realised it was a Sunday that was wasted in yawning.

The movie is so predictable and very far away from the realistic scenario.

Waste of time unfortunately.

Highly recommend don't waste your time to watch web series.

The writing is contrived and pathetic.

What a waste of time .

The creators of Bard Of Blood are genius , lots of hard work has been put, and the outcome is simply thrilling.

But when that cover is blown in every situation followed by a boring combat scene or stodgy chase, one feels terribly wronged as a viewer.

Overall series is worth the watch once and action displayed is good

The first episode should've at least been a gripping and built well, unfortunately it started off slow.

Waste of time ,racism hate speech story and propaganda .

Other than that, it's quite cliche and lacklustre.

Lousy and 80% waste of time .

Outstanding peace of **** and total waste of time and money.

No storyline just a stupid heroic character goes to become jmes bond baseless and against the physics .

Entertaining and full of action...

Superb storyline,awesome acting, thrilling end .

I Have Seen all The Episodes Of #BardOfBlood Really Its Is Thrilling And Emraan Sir Really Plays A Good Role.

I felt it was a waste of time!

Same old story Bollywood style far from reality its all fiction just a propaganda we expect from Netflix something original Netflix need to check content before approval.

Totally waste of time poor acting .

Such a poorly written script, predictable plot and terrible acting that kicks in around episode 2.

Series is mind blowing & full of action.

Just stunning stupidity in writing!

The show is intriguing and hooks you from the word go.

Waste of time .

The gripping sequences, the background music,and the cast play a able role.

Mundane supspense and climax...

Worth Watching .

Many flaws in keeping the soul of this show real, the twists are well-timed and the series is peppered with enough cliffhanger moments to keep you invested in these armed players who like to live on the edge.

Watched the first 3 episodes and felt too bored to continue.

Amazing & Thrilling spy based Rescue operation .

Waste of time.

mind blowing 😍😍😍😍love it .....

Every episode is thrilling Ride it Go for Netflix And watch it Emraan hashmi acting is superb Fantastic screen play

Don't waste your time on this series.

Don't waste your time on this.

Entertaining till the end and will keep you engaged through out.

Story was such a crap and pointless.

A fast paced story with enough suspense, thrill and a plot that keeps viewer on the hook.

This show has the worst actors, super predicable plot, cheap re enactment of hollywood action sequences, bad script and a director who probably fell asleep while making this.

Again I'll say A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!

Mind Boggling Action, Thriller, Storyline Omg!

Worth watching.

Every episode is just mind blowing.

Please don't waste your time in this.

Suspense revealed in the end was predictable.

Awesome performances and very gripping story line!!

Don't waste your time.

I loved this series because it's different from other it's adventurous & thrilling can't wait to watch season 2.

This series starting was good but in middle the series was trying to survive but the end suspense was worth to watch the whole slow running series.

Completely Illogical parallel to the Indian Propaganda Against Pakistan & its Premier Intelligence Agency.

Breathtaking factors .

Its a gripping intense watch.

If after then you will definitely get bored and just watch sake for finish to it or might plug it off

It's so filmy and old style bollywood with no plot and no sense of realistic approach.

Lack of screen play , dull acting , mockery of reality , i was expecting something good comming from imran hashmi after scared games, pakistan was shown like a village , people were shown stupid , if shahrukh really wants to please indians atleast show them some good action and reality .

Boring, stupid and lousy .

Mind Boggling Thriller Series .

What a waste of Money and Time .

Some episodes are 40mins long with 3 mins of boring end credits.

The narrative may be dumbed down and masalafied but is still gripping enough.

The strong and action packed performances are a treat to watch.

Although the family man and bard of blood seems to have same genre, family man is more of a light weight series while bard of blood is more intense and serious.

The body language, voice tone was so boring.

All the seven episodes are bang on adrenaline rush Emraan vineet shobhita and story all in top notch

I've watched three episodes so far and I am already bored.

But this show didn't raise my views, poor, boring screenplay, bad VFX (surprised with Red Chillies helming this movie), Shobita has only one expression on face throughout, no twists, inaccuracies in props like Ford Ikon, Tata vehicles in Balochistan?

Stunning photography of outdoor locations is a big plus point.

Total waste of time .

I was expecting something brilliant or interesting but the series is full of hatefull propaganda against Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Series is mind blowing & full of action.

Brilliant cinematography, average performances, dull screenplay and a very predictable linear narrative.

Series was very boring and predictable.

Dull show.

Waste of time.

Perfect start that leads to a very engaging story , performance of every character makes it impactful and keeps you over the edge of your seat and an end that makes you waiting for season 2!

The game between RAW and ISI spies with Taliban, US agents etc in the mix in Balochistan make for a novel and entertaining watch.

After watching family man of amazon prime and the way it was directed and portrayed this just looked a complete waste of time.

Gripping espionage thriller!.

however, all in all it was entertaining and keeps viewers interested.....

No storyline and it looks like they improvised the whole thing on set.

it's an enjoyable thriller with full of intensity and suspense.

The S1 of the series has 7 breathtaking episodes, which you will start with a kick and end with a boom.

Climax was so so predictable.

Casting is top notch, Series is Mind-blowing And Full Of Intense Action.

Enjoyed it completely, filled with suspense.

Totally riveting and entertaining.

Boring from Episode 1 .

It's a mix of emotions, love, betrayal, revenge, confusion.

This is just another propaganda movie.

Very poor narrative and direction, too dramatic as expected in Indian dramas, the female protagonist could have left the lip filler behind, I thought spies were supposed to hold their own in battle or otherwise, not spill the beans when in "love", the fact that they (band of 3) survived in enemy territory despite being outed from the very beginning was difficult to comprehend, and hashmi was painstaking to watch, a protracted season leaves him exposed as an actor, the 5 stars are for the locations chosen, stunning backdrop !!

Cinematography and overall spy thrilling materials can keep ur focus hold on.

Everything in this series is so predictable.

Waste of time :Bad acting , no continuity between scenes.

Watched all the episodes, engaging, gripping, thrilling plot.

A total bollywood series, waste of time.

Another propaganda by India.

Every episode is just a drag and by the end of the show you'll wonder why did you hit on play in the first place and that this show could have have been made into a two hour movie but is dragged to kill your precious time.

Everything is super weak, easily predictable, poor acting, no suspense and the list is super long.

Its worth watching.

Don't waste your time as I wouldn't want to waste mine writing a review for this utter piece of ****.

Propaganda .

I have completed the series at once, cause you cant stop before the last episode as its so engaging.

Pretty boring....

An utter waste of time...

Best series in india after scared games seson 1 and mirazapur , imaran hashmi is great all 7 episodes are best last twist is super worth watching series

Beautiful screen play, Action-filled, suspenseful and a step forward to the level of Hollywood tv shows such as Homeland and Jack Ryan.

Propaganda at its peak .

Don't Miss This One, It Has Amazing Storyline And a Thrilling Climax.

Its entertaining and the acting was good enough.

Its cause is helped by a reasonable, if formulaic story and lots of action, in all the right places.

Predictable af with the fear propaganda flying right off the bat in the first episode (thanks for that!!

Locations were stunning.

It's just bland.

But it's a complete waste of time.

Waste of time.

Positives : 1) The Environment of the show Is engaging you feel that you are In Balochisthan 2)The Action sequence Is one of the biggest asset of this show & this show will be termed has one of the finest Action thrillers of all time the camera angle,hand to hand combat,the gun sequence are all brilliant 3) The Performances Just saying that the cast was Brilliant would be an understatement.

Likable, watchable, engaging, definitely season 2 is coming .

Story: 3/10Cast: 4/10 (actors could have done better, but I guess that's what director asked them to do)Direction: 3/10 Very cliché.

Written by bilal siddiqui produced by Redchilli productions (srk) a political thriller aimed at creating propaganda against Pakistan.. nothing more than Anti everything to incite more hatred...

Cliche of Bollywood movies .

Don't waste your time on this.

It has been shot delightfully even though the narrative is confusing for some parts.

Interesting Stories, Mind blowing Acting, Superb Direction 🎥 What A Twist In Last Moment 🙄 Really Bard Of Blood is really awesome..must see

Spy story is engaging and keeps you wanting more Thoroughly enjoying the series and loved the cinematography :) Can't wait to keep watching the next one

Bard of Bore .

Catchy, gripping and certainly binge worthy.

The story, too, is quite typical and mundane.

Keep in mind, though, the very last shot of the season finale was a twist with such standard and predictable Bollywood cliche that it was painful.

mind blowing .

so guys don't waste your time it was unbearable don't watch it...

Cliched & predictable like the Current Indian political propaganda .

Imran did good acting but the storyline was wayyy too weak and uninteresting.

Waste of time .

Boring .

Frikking waste of time - 7 hrs I won't get back.

Simply pathetic the story of too predictable, action scenes are too dramatic and even the blood looks fake !!!

The action sequences,plotline, and the suspense just keeps you hold..This one is worth watching..

However the narrative tends to get predictable at times.
