New Delhi: Actress Priyanka Chopra's ‘Quantico' premiered in the United States on Sunday night and took the country by storm. Seeing an Indian actress nail the role of an American FBI recruit came as a surprise to all.

After the premiere of the pilot episode of ‘Quantico', the US media took to Twitter to express how much they were impressed by the show.

Priyanka Chopra essays the role of Alex Parrish in the show. Alex has always dreamt to join the FBI, but later she finds herself in huge trouble when she is painted as a co-conspirator of one of the biggest terrorist attacks on the States.

Before the airing of the show, Priyanka's contemporaries close home had tweeted their support.

Actress Sonakshi Sinha took it to a new level with a really quirky video she posted.

Moving far from home, practically everyone who watched the show seemed to be spellbound by Priyanka's acting.

Here are a few tweets that praised the actress and the show wholeheartedly.

Apart from these, the Hollywood media too gave the show a thumbs up.

Hollywood Reporter wrote: “And Safran and company have a nice little conceit in the pilot where we meet a bunch of the FBI recruits on their way to their first day, then follow them in the early stages as they meet each other and build some background stories along the way. Cleverly, Quantico achieves this by having each recruit find out a piece of information redacted from the files of a co-recruit. Fail to find out the secret (which the FBI already knows — this is a training exercise, not free intern labor) and you're out.”

And Variety was quoted as saying, “With an arresting lead in Priyanka Chopra, a former Miss World who was born in India, the show races through a lot of material very quickly, which makes it difficult to get a firm handle on where all of this might settle.”

People magazine also praised the show by writing, “The pilot, at least, is well worth checking out. The story isn't always plausible — there's one twist that would blow away every brainstorm that ever disrupted Carrie Mathison's peace of mind — but it's complicated, clever and fast enough that you start to wonder if even the most incidental detail may actually have significance in the season.”
