Uninstall Hotstar noise is getting louder on Social Media. The Streaming platform Disney+ Hostar is facing the wrath of social media , in the wake of the highly anticipated show The Empire. Before the show was released, ‘#UninstallHotstar has been trending on social media. Here’s why the show has been embroiled in controversy and what’s happening.
Meanwhile Hotstar has rejected the grievance complaint against the series streaming on its platform. People have accused the makers of glorifying Islamic invader Babur. It is said that the grievance officer (appointed under Information Technology (Guidelines for intermediaries and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021) has rejected the complaint stating that the series doesn’t glorify Babur.
When the trailer of the The Empire had released, people compared it to the popular fantasy drama Game of Thrones. Produced by Nikkhil Advani, The Empire is based on Alex Rutherford’s book Empire of the Moghul: Raiders from the North.
The Empire Quick Review
Based on the novels by Alex Rutherford (who I recently learned isn’t even a real person, but actually a married couple, concealed as if under a trench coat), The Empire is a bloated, bulbous mess. It’s relatively short — eight episodes ranging from 35 minutes to 50 minutes long — but watching Prince of Persia cutscenes play on a loop for three days would seem like a smoother ride.
The series showcases the rise and fall of Mughal Empire beginning from Babur. The story begins in Farghana where young prince Babur is made the king at a young age and he begins his campaign for the conquest of North India.
