Rohit Shetty, who is known for building a cop universe on film, does an excellent job of portraying a real-life cop for a day. He is full of energy from the start of the episode and demonstrates the mental and physical strength that a cop must have in the field.
He takes an active role in the training session, effortlessly overcoming obstacles such as the ram jump, crawl, and unarmed combat to reach the weapons training. He gets a first-hand look at what the commandos go through in order to combat threats and keep the people of Kashmir safe.
He doesn’t allow Tanveer Jilani, Principal Training Centre, a chance to ease upon him, and he passes every session with zeal.
