The serie about Pablo Escobar’s life is a success in Argentina TV

On December 2, 1993, the day he turned 44, Pablo Escobar Gaviria died shot on the roof of a house in a neighborhood in Medellin

The "Master of Evil" is a hit in Argentina. The series has 113 chapters and is about the life of Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria, considered, in the 80s, the biggest drug dealer in the world. Legend stands today as the most powerful in history. To the extent that Forbes magazine placed him at the time, as the seventh richest man in the world with a fortune valued at 5000 million. Words like "verraco" and "hagale" were incorporated to Buenos Aires this summer vocabulary Andrés Parra is who plays Pablo Escobar, his acting is superb and convincing. Parra had to deal with the film records of the real life of Escobar. There is his strong point, not only by the physical resemblance but by the way he talks, that's where the character gains its composition and makes him credible. One sees Pablo Escobar all the time. Not only shines Parra. There are very well resolved characters, Vicky Hernández plays the mother of Escobar. Doña Hermilda achieves high dramatic intensity that suffers and enjoys her son's rise to Olympus crime. Cristian Tappan makes up Gonzalo Gaviria, Escobar's cousin and also a member, right hand buddy. Is in charge of the finances of the Medellin poster, often call it stingy to look after the money. Is who opposes the wars with certain logic that his cousin faces, but he has no choice but to comply. The faces of disgust followed by the expression "dont fuck Pablo" whenever Escobar ordered to execute someone with influential in the country, are excellent. The series is from 2012 and was produced by the snail Colombia chain. There are very good recreation of time and historical events are documented with real images. The idea of the founders was to tell the story from the point of view of the victims of Escobar, one of the producers is the son of Guillermo Cano, the journalist who was assassinated by the Medellin poster. The look on the political class and society as a whole is benevolent and has a questionable view of the good and the bad. It is clear that Escobar sucked but had some political, judicial and military complicity and some admiration of the population especially Medellin. That part of the story is very superficially. A weak point of the embodiment seen here at night on Channel 9.
