If you haven’t gone through their names before, then this series will introduce you to the high-profile scams and lives of fraud tycoons. The series is a mixture of logic and emotions.
So basically, Bad Boy Billionaire series is divided into three parts named:

All three parts will show you their lives stories one by one, which is a collection of news and articles of legal cases. The first episode is directed by Dylan Mohan Gray, about Vijay Mallya (beer baron) and his journey from being the only child of Vittal Mallya to the profile of The King of Good times. Netflix has again done a great job, the way it came to the content from the bunch of news headings, pieces and articles. It shows the counter-arguments of Raghu and Siddharth Mallya. This part clearly has shown the keen mind of Vijay Mallya in breaking the taboos of the alcohol business. The thought of turning Kingfisher Airlines into a huge business took him to a profound downfall. He made such a wrong step by spending a lot of luxurious life and ended up living in debt. It featured an interview with Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Shobha De and Alex Wilox, Ceo of Kingfisher Airlines.
Nirav Modi in Bad Boys Billionaire
The episode is titled as “Diamond Aren’t Forever” directed by Johanna Hamilton explores the fascinating journey of Nirav Modi's rise and downfall in business. He was born into Diamonds business, Surat. His focus was going forward to the Jewellers market and challenge other competitors. In the practice of diversifying his Diamond business engaged in illegal inflating.
The episode also shows how the admiration period of Nirav Modi because of his amazing expensive jewellery pieces turned into his fraudulent period. He ran out of India after attempting scams. The episode put light on Mehul Choksi, but the inclusion is a bit distracting. The series covered the interviews of a few of his employees who believed him as a God and devastated that how he ruined their lives.
It also highlighted his doubtful borrowing money from Punjab National Bank. It also focuses on the interviews of Nirav Modi's business and his whole journey with a collection of articles and news headings. The interesting part is when Nirav fled out of India after attempting such scans.
Subrata Roy in Bad Boys Billionaire
The third part of the series titled as “The world's biggest family” directed by Nick Reed tells about Subrata Roy (Industrialist), the most engaging episode as he involved a massive group of people to invest in his most controversial scheme. This episode explored the journey stages of Subrata Roy and how he built the Sahara India Pariwar organisation on the savings of impoverished millions from the chit fund pyramid schemes. He makes people believe that he will double or triple their money and leave them helpless at the end.
People thought they would get good returns from their deposited earnings but got cheated at the end. The terrific thing is a significant population deposited their money in Sahara Schemes. He spent all his money on the Amby Valley Project and his own Airlines. Roy was known with the name of Saharashri, currently out on bail. The episode showed the way Subrata Roy ran Sahara like his own personal vogue. He counted in doubt when he threw a grand lavish wedding ceremony of his son. Series features interviews with victim depositors, prominent journalists like Sharat Pradhan (appreciated investigative journalism for his comprehensive reporting while Sahara Scams) and Shutapa Paul.
It is considered as the highlight of the episode with intense insightful of Pradhan into Roy's disobedience. Despite his journey of corruption and cheating people, the series also put light on his mind games.
