Murder by the Sea (2022) web series review: Story

Detective story writer Arpita Sen (Ananya Chatterjee) met with photographer Arun Roy (Rupankar Bagchi) at the sea beach of Puri. She suffered from bipolar disorder and had a traumatized childhood where people held her responsible for her brother’s death in the sea. Her husband Raja Sen (Anjan Dutt) who is also a film director always looks after her to make sure she takes the medicine on time. 

After getting introduced to each other, Arun requested Arpita to join him at a lunch party at a famous person Bikram Roy’s (Sumanta Mukherjee) house so that he can spend a little more time with her to know about her detective stories. Bikram Roy is the husband of the famous Bengali actress Supriya Roy (Alivia Sarkar). She rejected his proposal initially but after thinking for a while she agreed to go with him.

Once they arrived at Bikram Roy’s house she was introduced to Bikram’s son Arjun Roy (Arjun Chakraborty) who is a hotelier, his lawyer Varun Samant (Sujan Mukhopadhyay), his secretary Ramen Das (Suprabhat Das), professional psychic Bimala Mishra (Payal Sarkar), and pop singer Reena Das (Trina Saha) who is also the girlfriend of Arjun.

Arjun Roy is a rich man spoilt brat and he has disagreements and arguments almost every time with the people around him. Soon, the environment there became unbearable for Arpita and she left the place. She went back to the sea beach and found a dead body and it was Bikram Roy. The rest of the story revolves around resolving the death mystery of Bikram Roy.

Performances & Analysis:

Murder by the sea is another mystery thriller by Anjan Dutt which started well but ended up being an ordinary thriller due to the faulty execution. The plot of this series looked very much similar to Anjan Dutt’s previous series Murder in the hills.

Ananya Chatterjee’s outstanding performance is a treat to watch. Arjun Chakrabarty was highly appreciated for his efforts in Srijit Mukherji-directed movie X=Prem but did not live up to the expectations here. Neel Dutt’s music was another positive area of this series.

Paayel Sarkar, Suprobhat Das, Rupankar Bagchi, Sujan Mukherjee, Trina Saha Bhattacharya, Alivia Sarkar, and Anjan Dutt were unable to leave any big impression here.

At times the narrative looked boring and a disappointing climax made Murder by the sea watch uninteresting.

Final Words

Ananya Chatterjee’s performance is the only reason you can consider Murder by the sea for a one-time watch.
