"There is no such thing as failure, only delayed success"
When a Spanish show premiered on 2017, which had good rating in the start, as it gradually reduced and it was about to cancel till it reaches to the attention of Netflix. The rest became history!!!
Delayed success, just like the photocopy machine when introduced had no great success, when Xerox took the business of the same photocopy machine was a great success...the rest became history…. instead of calling photocopy – people started calling Xerox copy!!! same way the La Casa De Papel, became Netflix’s Money Heist.
Money Heist undergone such a transformation by Netflix, gaining the world's attention and becoming the most watched successful series worldwide. It became so popular that celebrity like Neymar called the director and wanted to be a part of the series, hence he acted in the series for a short while as Brazilian monk.
(Neymar is Brazilian footballer- considered as the best player in the world...for dummies in football)
I personally see the success as the effort from Netflix for a quality program. When the quality in the program given a serious note, all things falls in the right place. I would recommend all of you to watch the Money Heist series (Adults only) !!!
I am not adherent fan of long series, and I had no such patience for it, but when I happened to see the first episode of Money Heist - things changed for me. The dialogues, action, editing, screenplay were so focused to the theme which gave all the promise for the quality plot...the moves, the planning and the way it was executed made the story line stronger that I finished watching all the parts in a short span of time (till Part-4) due credit needs to be given to the lock down due to Covid-19.
My younger daughter was asking me “Why you want to see the story of robbers, they are bad people” Even with that understanding I was glued to each and every characters in the series. I tried to explain her about the European central bank printed 171 billion in 2011, 185 billion in 2012, 145 billion euros in 2013…and told her Liquidity injection is not a crime, and we can’t say it as robbery – tired my best to narrate the image of Robin Hood in modern era and sang Bella Ciao…Bella Ciao…which made to feel that Dad having a great day during lock down…let him enjoy and she forgave me…
The beauty of the series is the characters and their narrations, all the characters made a deep impact in their characterization, The Professor - the brain behind all the code named robbers programming the heist in a Hi-Fi technique with the typical classroom teaching - where the heist had the beautiful exit plan without harming anyone during their operation.
I personally liked the Professor, Denver and interesting character of Berlin – who at one point will declare his illness as he would die soon, worried by this, his brother would then say let’s stop all this and start medication for you…at that time – Berlin would say…” Would you have told Michelanglo to stop sculpting his David?
There was depth and inspiring confidence with the skill in playing the Heist like a metaphor of chess game by planning ahead…ahead way ahead. Makes the Professor character as cool minded, intellectual with the martial art skills aligned with romance. Interesting plot during the last moments of Nairobi who will be executed cruelly by Gandia in the presence of her beloved heist members, I repeatedly watched that part many times and amazed by how the plot designed by Professor to use Gandia - where he will be given the only option to show his bravery - is to see his son alive...I was glued to the TV while watching it for the first time fully involved ignoring my mom call for dinner !!!
Awaiting season - 5 and avoiding all the spoilers - I have great faith for Alex Pina. He will make the season as interesting as the rest of the parts. I would recommend all of you not to get any hints about the season 5 as it will dilute the interest. The waiting begins....
