Dr. Avinash Sabharwal is back, along with J. In the first season of Breathe: Into the Shadows, we see him taking a stand with daughter Sia’s kidnappers. We also saw the craziness of that in the first season. And now once again Abhishek Bachchan has become Doctor Avinash Sabharwal and who has become. Which is the alter ego of Avinash. Amit Sadhni is also back in the role of Kabir Sawant. The second season of Mayank Sharma’s series has been released on Amazon Prime Video on November 9.
After disappearing for three years, Dr. Avinash Sabharwal’s alter ego i.e. his second personality has come to seek revenge. He is out of the mental hospital. He now wants to take revenge on all those who have hurt him in some way. This time he is accompanied by a companion named Victor. Avinash is called the slayer of Ravana, because he wants to kill the 10 symbolic heads of Ravana. Kabir Sawant works day and night to stop him, but will he succeed?
Avinash Sabharwal’s treatment is going well in the mental asylum. But doctors tell him, he may never get out. Avinash accepts this fact, but his alter ego is not ready to accept this. Which warns that he will finish the case he started. Which says whoever has troubled Avinash, he will kill all the people. He assigns Abha Sabarwal (Nithya Menon) the task of killing his enemy. The enemy is real estate king Neil Bahl. Who has a list of 5 people he wants to destroy. These are vices – pride, arrogance, insensitivity etc.
Let us tell you that the first part of this series was with R Madhavan. Abhishek Bachchan was then cast. This new season of the psychological thriller seems to struggle to keep pace despite the intrigue, planning and constant killing. The story of this season seems to be much bigger than the first season. There is also a dangerous person Victor (Naveen Kasturia), who helps Jenny in the mission. Officer Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh) gets to work to stop the ongoing murders.
Each episode of the season is 42 minutes long. In each episode, Avinash faces a person whom Ja wants to kill. Each of these characters has a backstory, which proves why Avinash wants to kill the person. The way Mayank Sharma has directed the show and given the thriller treatment will keep you hooked. But you may find the murder and escape sequences too dramatic. Often you will not agree with him.
Abhishek Bachchan has given a powerful performance. One thing to be noted here is that in this season, Abhishek’s acting graph can be seen for him who does not have a separate face to his name, Avinash with a single face and who has to show both personalities. Abhishek Bachchan has acted exceptionally in some scenes. Amita Kumpu Anger has reduced compared to last season. But he has done justice to the character of an energetic police officer. Nithya Menon and Saiyami Khair have less space compared to season one. Naveen Kasturia’s performance also has to be praised.
This series could have been better. Episodes could have been shorter, especially in terms of length. But still this series will keep you hooked. Once you start, you will want to settle down.
