    The Railway Men marks Yash Raj Films’ foray into the over-the-top (OTT) market. In important roles, Kay Kay Menon, Madhavan, Divyendu, and Babil Khan are featured in the show.


    The show is about railway workers who, in the wake of the world’s worst industrial disaster—the Bhopal Gas Tragedy saved lives. At the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant in Bhopal, the incident happened on the evening of December 2, 1984.

    Extra Credits:

    The Railway Men’s creators should be especially commended for bringing attention to the sacrifices made by unsung heroes of railway workers who have saved thousands of lives. The main causes of the accident have been demonstrated, including inadequate safety procedures at the plant and inadequate training provided to Union Carbide employees.

    The recreation of the industrial disaster is amazing, and witnessing so many innocent lives being lost is heartbreaking. The people of Bhopal began fighting among themselves because they had no idea what was going on around them. This resulted in complete chaos, and all of these scenes will make us cry.

    The lead cast gives excellent performances. Of all of them, Kay Kay Menon’s portrayal as a station master is particularly noteworthy. He gave the role his all, and it’s amazing how much effort he puts into saving others. Famous Mirzapur stars Divyenudu and Babil Khan were formidable and provided Kay Kay Menon with great support.

    Negative Points:

    The Railway Men’s overabundance of subplots is its primary flaw. Nor do the subplots have a satisfying conclusion. A few scenes are overly dramatic, which somewhat lessens their impact.

    If you enjoy watching the English web series Chernobyl, you might not find The Railway Men to be entirely captivating. While they both deal with comparable tragedies, Chernobyl is a masterpiece in every way. There are a few moments where the pacing slows.

    Technical Features:

    The series has been heavily invested in by YRF Entertainment, and the production values are impressive. The sets are gorgeous, and the historical era was depicted with style. Cinematographer Rubais’s images are strong, and Sam Slater’s background music is amazing.

    With the series, director Shiv Rawali has done a respectable job. Nevertheless, The Railway Men’s advantages exceed its disadvantages.


    The Railway Men, as a whole, tells the story of the unsung heroes of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy who gave their lives to save others. The outstanding performances of Babil Khan, Divyendu, and Kay Kay Menon are the series’ main assets, and there are plenty of captivating moments. But its main problems are the numerous subplots and the occasionally slow pacing. The Railway Men has its shortcomings, but it’s still worth seeing.
