KARACHI  : You’ve acquired at hand it to the makers of Pakistan’s newest obsession Money Heist 4. They provide sufficient fodder to the viewers for them to be hooked to their TV units and fireplace up the meme sport on the identical time. Nevertheless, it wasn’t till the primary two seasons that the well-known Spanish thriller, La Casa De Papel, landed on Netflix and has since then grow to be one of many most-watched exhibits of the streaming large.

The forged is led by The Professor (Álvaro Morte) and his legal ensemble. Rio (Miguel Herrán), Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), Helsinki (Darko Perić), Nairobi (Alba Flores), Denver (Jaime Lorente), Stockholm (Esther Acebo) and the well-known inspector Raquel (Itziar Ituño) are a few of the recurring characters.


Part three of Le Casa de Papel made waves in Pakistan final yr for its gripping storyline and sensible forged. The viewers was left with one of many distinguished group members, Nairobi, being shot down and an obvious execution of Lisbon. Sergio and his group had begun to crumble underneath stress and resorted to violence – which the Professor had all the time forbidden.


The fourth season of the present was streamed on April three globally as many waited to see whether or not Nairobi makes it by and the way the remainder of the present unfolds. For somebody who has adopted the present earlier than it obtained the hype, the adrenaline rush was actual!

Season 4 continues with Sergio’s flashbacks from the time of Berlin’s marriage ceremony and when the duo was making ready the heist. To the aid of many, myself included, Nairobi, by some miracle and with the assistance of Dr Ahmed from Pakistan (woot!) makes it out alive. We see extra point out of Professor’s links in Pakistan as he connects with a group of hackers and surgeons from the nation.

We additionally see the return of one of the hated characters, Arturo, who continues his predatory methods even with all the stress. However the former supervisor of the Royal Mint is the least of the considerations for Sergio’s group. The precise villain of season 4 is Gandia (José Manuel Poga), who served because the bodyguard to the Governor of Bank of Spain.

Nairobi’s storyline was as all the time sensible. She survives a bullet, solely to have been shot down by Gandia in a later episode. Nairobi’s demise got here as a shock to the Professor, the group and the followers. This was one of many scenes the place you may need to take a pause to return to phrases with the brand new actuality.


The motion sequences of the newest season, like its earlier ones, are sensible and interesting. The cat and mouse chase continued between Gandia and the group, conserving the viewers glued. The dialogues have been well-versed and intense. The appearing of the entire forged was simply as spectacular as the sooner seasons.

Nevertheless, little did we all know, disappointments have been so as.

The downer

The haphazardness of the script, the brand new characters, the plot twists, and the flashbacks – all of it acquired a bit too jumbled for an in any other case clearly fleshed out present. There are additionally narrative loopholes you possibly can’t ignore.

However don’t get me flawed, there have been – as all the time – few nail-biting sequences as nicely. Scenes that make you cowl your eyes, scenes that you would be able to’t wait to complete. However the variety of such scenes was perhaps six in all the eight episodes.

Tokyo continues to evoke chaos, Rio struggles with PTSD, Denver and Stockholm hit a rocky patch of their marriage proper in the course of a Money heist. Helsinki truthfully doesn’t actually do a lot, Palermo, who was apparently the genius behind the entire plan of robbing Bank of Spain, betrays the group and frees their worst nightmare (Gandia) on them. Amid all this, we nonetheless don’t know who or the place Tatiana (Berlin’s lengthy misplaced love) is!


Money Heist season 4 frustrates you. There can be occasions when you’ll really feel this season has been dragged a bit, and also you gained’t be flawed. The makers, like earlier installments, ought to have wrapped the heist of Bank of Spain on this season however the viewers met with one more cliffhanger!

Secure to say, now we have to attend for one more yr (or perhaps extra as a result of present Coronavirus outbreak) to see how the Professor will get out of the mess that he’s in proper now.

Do you have to binge-watch the fourth season of Money Heist?  Completely. Do you have to anticipate the identical greatness from this season because the final three? Not likely.
