The Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi bromance to break up story received a thumbs up from both audiences and critics alike. They nailed it on the court while millions watched them, conquering one game after the next, Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi seemed almost indestructible. Break Point, the story of India’s most loved sporting pair revealed their intriguing on and off-court dynamics as the 7-part series got released on Zee 5.
While the trailer of the highly anticipated series created ripples giving audiences a sneak-peak of everything in store, Break Point, jointly directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari amassed rave reviews from audiences and critics. This came as no surprise as the tell-it-all series encapsulated the highs and the lows, the victories and the highly speculated split between the tennis icons who were the most feared doubles pair during the late 1990’s.
Break Point became a subject of heated discussion and took the digital space by storm. The series was lauded for its candid, unfiltered and honest narrative of what actually went down between the tennis icons while capturing their friendship, partnership, brotherhood, ambition and hard work.
Audiences referred to the series as 'irresistibly compelling', 'an evocative piece of storytelling' and 'insightful'.
