TV miniseries

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Surpreet (Supinder Wraich), an Indo-Canadian young woman who has long assimilated to Western culture, suddenly receives news that her father Malkit (Sahib Rana) has been arrested for the possession of 100 kilogram of heroin. Now Surpreet and her father have long drifted apart, nevertheless she can't stand the thought of him going to jail, not since she has been traumatized by finding the dead body of her mother. Thing is, Malkit's bail alone is 250,000 Dollar, an amount she doesn't have in the slightest. But Surpreet comes to live with her grandmother Nani (Balinder Johal) for the time being to find out what's best for her father. By and large, Surpreet tries to shield Nani, a devout Sikh, from her father's misdeeds, being convinced of his innocence herself - but when she finds a sizeable amount of cocaine and a handgun in his car's trunk, her perception of her dad starts to shift. But the finding also gives her an idea, as she might be able to sell the stuff and pay her father's bail that way. And eventually, through her dad's cellmate, she even finds a potential buyer - and then the drugs are gone, and when she retrieves them from Nani's neighbour (Cas Anvar) no less, the troubles only deepen, likewise when selling the drugs doesn't go nearly as smooth as supposed to with one fatality. By the by, Surpreet has to come to the conviction she has taken a bite too big for her - but it's not as if she could bail out now anymore ...


Basically, The 410 is culture clash meets high crime, but  told in a very engaging and entertaining way, full of absurdities and noir-ish elements that really drive the miniseries highly original story and spin it out of control to the audience's delight. And thanks to a tightly written script and a dynamic directorial effort, there's hardly a dull moment in this one, all only helped by several very unexpected (yet totally logical) plottwists. And an uniformly strong cast is pretty much the icing on the cake.

Recommended for sure.
