Review by Raj-Bitu Kang: A series that will get people talking no doubt. A sensitive subject perhaps for the religious individuals out there but, try not to judge and watch it with an open mind.
This is a brilliant series which got me hooked from the first episode. It’s different from anything I have seen previously which made it even more interesting to watch. Mehdi Dehbi is simply superb and I found him captivating.
The beauty of Messiah is that it gets you from the get-go. We have no slow build-up here ladies and gentlemen. Weirdly it lures you without you realising it. The questions this throws up in one’s mind are unreal. Those who have watched the show have discussed the same things with me, we all walk away from the series thinking – What If It Did Happen?!
As well as being dramatic and emotional, this is a well written and well-casted series. There is much suspense and many questions to be answered. Now I’ll have to wait for season two and see where the story goes next.
What if the Messiah showed up today? What would you do? The cast of the Netflix series investigates the show and how people would react if this was to happen in today’s modern world.
