Abhay 2 Review: Story & Performances: 

Abhay 2 certainly stands among one of the best crime thrillers in recent times. After the success of Abhay Season 1, director Ken Ghosh has come up with some more thrilling stories in Abhay Season 2. Chunkey Pandey has made his debut on the OTT platform through this web series. His character Harsh has shown us the brutality of murdering his victims.

Abhay’s past still haunts him often but he has moved his son to a boarding school and currently living together with a Journalist named Sonam (played by Asha Negi ) & focusing on his job completely. He has an unbelievable capability to read any case and figure out the plan to catch the murderer as earliest possible.

9 meritorious students who were preparing for competitive exams got missing from the local areas of Lucknow. The case was handed over to Special Task Force Officer Abhay along with his team including Khushboo (played by Nidhi Singh), Awasthi (Devender Chaudhury), and two others.

Harsh (played by Chunkey Pandey) believed in gaining knowledge by eating some brilliant students’ brains, so he also killed his own wife. The STF team started with some basic investigations and they found some clues to finally catch Harsh red-handed while attempting to murder a student named Dhiren.

The next episode was about Saloni (played by Bidita Bag), a sex worker who enjoys murdering her clients and keeping a tooth from those victims. While she was spending time with one of her favorite clients, the STF team found her and before they can arrest her she kills herself.

The next episode showed us a mysterious kidnapper (played by Ram Kapoor) kidnapped 35 children and two teachers out of which 25 have been successfully rescued by Abhay. The rest of those children will be released one by one if Abhay successfully solves the mystery given by the kidnapper.

The storytelling was quite different compared to other crime thrillers as here you are getting an idea about the culprits before even the investigation starts. Nothing much to say about Director Ken Ghosh as he has shown us again his powerful direction skill in Abhay 2.

Kunal Khemu as Abhay Pratap Singh, a Special Task Force Officer was simply outstanding. He continues his good performances. His last released movie Lootcase has earned him lots of praise for his good performance.

Ram Kapoor has been phenomenal in doing such a role with almost perfection. His look and body language were so scary and perfect for such a role. He has thrown challenges to Abhay which will unfold in the next episodes.

Chunkey provided a spectacular performance on his digital debut. Nidhi Singh with her occasional good inputs on some cases was a fair choice for the role and Devender Chaudhury with his occasional jokes while investigating the cases was quite effective.

Asha Negi, popularly known for her performance in Pavitra Rishta daily soap, has already made her debut on the OTT platform through the web series Baarish opposite to Sharman Joshi. Her performance in Abhay 2 as a journalist, always trying to reveal the truth was good enough.

A complete packed-up performance from the lead casts of the series has made Abhay 2 a must-watch. Only three episodes are streaming currently and another 5 episodes will stream from 4th September onwards.

The series is streaming on ZEE5.
