Abhay is back and with a season 2 and the season, is menacing as ever. Right from the first episode, one gets to see that it is going to be a chilling season. The first episode seems to be inspired from the movie Silence of the Lamps and Sangarsh staring Ahustosh Rana but Chunky Panday holds his own. He is very convincing in his role and sets the tone for the entire season.
Special Task Force officer Abhay Pratap Singh, aka Kunal Khemu, is back and he gives another balanced, restricted performance that one expects out of him. He is the soul of the show and does not disappoint one bit. In fact every time the pace of the show drops or if there is a turn that does not stick as much it is performance and the character that gets you going. Asha Negi as the righteous journalist makes her presence felt.
Another person’s performance that needs a special mention is Ram Kapoor. His eerie smile is going to be etched in the minds of people for a long time to go. There are so many layers to his character and one gets to know them as the series progresses and he remains true to the character all throughout.
Some of the scenes are little gory for me so if you too are faint-hearted like me, be warned. However, you will be missing out on a great thriller crime series.
In every episode, a new case is revealed but there is an overlapping story that keeps you invested. . Director Ken Ghosh has done a good job in keeping things packed. However, there are a few scenes that feel a little stretched and forward 10 seconds could be a good option to have. Alas! Zee 5 app does not have the same as some of the other streaming apps.
What works for Abhay season 2 is the great storytelling and performances from Kunal Kemu and Ram Kapoor. Also, Chunkey Panday was a huge surprise and leaves a lasting impression.
