International media, Bollywood laud Priyanka and ‘Quantico’


With Hollywood TV show, ‘Quantico’, Priyanka Chopra has entered into a new territory and as the show opens in USA on Sunday night (September 27), it has garnered a lot of attention across the globe specially India as it stars Priyanka Chopra. Though opened with mixed reviews from critics, Priyanka Chopra and ‘Quantico’ was highly praised.

Bollywood celebrities including Parineeti Chopra and actresses Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma took to Twitter to wish luck to Priyanka

The people of US showered praise on Priyanka and the show on the social media. International media praised Priyanka for her performance, calling her the strongest human asset.

The New York Times has the most unique compliment for Priyanka Chopra. It says: “The strongest human asset in Quantico is Ms. Chopra, a Bollywood superstar and former Miss World who is immediately charismatic and commanding amid the otherwise generic ensemble. If there’s a problem with her casting, it’s that she may come across as too seasoned and assured to be persuasive as a shaky, neophyte recruit.”

Hollywood Reporter says: “And Safran and company have a nice little conceit in the pilot where we meet a bunch of the FBI recruits on their way to their first day, then follow them in the early stages as they meet each other and build some background stories along the way. Cleverly, Quantico achieves this by having each recruit find out a piece of information redacted from the files of a co-recruit. Fail to find out the secret (which the FBI already knows — this is a training exercise, not free intern labor) and you’re out.”

Variety says: “With an arresting lead in Priyanka Chopra, a former Miss World who was born in India, the show races through a lot of material very quickly, which makes it difficult to get a firm handle on where all of this might settle.”

The People Magazine writes: “The pilot, at least, is well worth checking out. The story isn’t always plausible — there’s one twist that would blow away every brainstorm that ever disrupted Carrie Mathison’s peace of mind — but it’s complicated, clever and fast enough that you start to wonder if even the most incidental detail may actually have significance in the season.”

‘Quantico’ will premiere in India on October 3 on Star World and Star World Premiere HD.
