Plot of The Night Manager Web Series

The Night Manager is an Indian web series based on the 1993 novel of the same name by John le Carré. It is an adaptation of the 2016 British miniseries of the same name. The series stars Aditya Roy Kapur as Shaan Sengupta, a former Lieutenant in the Indian Navy who is recruited by the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to infiltrate the inner circle of Shelly Rungta (Anil Kapoor), a powerful arms dealer.

The series begins with Shaan working as a night manager in a Dhaka hotel. He is approached by Safina Kidwai, a 14-year-old girl who is married to the majority share owner of the hotel, Freddie Rehman. Safina begs Shaan to help her escape to India, but he is unable to do so. She is later killed by Shelly’s men.

Two years later, Shaan is living in Shimla, working as a night manager in a resort. One day, Shelly and his associates arrive at the resort. Shaan collects information from Shelly’s trash and mails it to Lipika Rao (Tillotama Shome), a RAW officer.

Lipika is impressed by Shaan’s skills and asks him to go undercover as Shelly’s right-hand man to expose his dark secrets. Shaan agrees and begins to infiltrate Shelly’s inner circle. He gains Shelly’s trust and even wooes his wife, Kaveri (Sobhita Dhulipala).

However, Shaan’s mission is not easy. He is constantly watched by Shelly’s men and must be careful not to reveal his true identity. He also faces opposition from within RAW, as some of the officers are corrupt and working for Shelly.

Despite the challenges, Shaan perseveres and eventually succeeds in bringing Shelly down. He exposes Shelly’s illegal activities and helps RAW arrest him.

In short, if you are looking for a web series that will leave you with your nail-bitten raw, we’d 100% recommend you give this a go.
