Bodh Season 1 Review: Story, Performances & Analysis

The series begins with an accident of college professor Dipti Saha (Runa Khan), her husband retired Judge Alamgir Hossain (Afzal Hossain) who is an Alzheimer’s patient, is often haunted by this bad dream where he saw Suman (Khairul Basar) sitting beside Dipti’s dead body. Alamgir manages to Suman & gave it to his daughter Srabonti (Sarah Alam).

She came to know from her sources that 5 years back Suman received capital punishment of 9 years jail sentence by her father Alamgir. She started investigating the case with the help of police officer Ehsan (Shahjahan Shamrat). What is the reason for reopening a case of 5 years back? 

Director Amitabh Reza Chowdhury’s storytelling is highly impressive. At times, the narrative takes you back to some past events surrounding the lives of younger Alamgir and Dipti Saha which will keep you engaged.

Another chemistry that worked in this series is the chemistry between Parvin(Orchita Sporshia) and Suman. I felt Khairul Basar as Suman & Orchita Sporshia as Parvin both were convincing but they deserved some more screen time. Their romantic scenes will take you away from the mystery part sometimes. 

Another chemistry that got overlooked is the chemistry between Sarah Alam and Shahjahan Shamrat. Both of them were amazing in their respective roles but the script offers nothing much about their chemistry which was looking good in the last couple of episodes.

Afzal Hossain and Runa Khan delivered believable performances. Though Runa Khan had less screen time her character was quite powerful which will get your attention from the beginning.

The narrative of the first couple of episodes was slow paced but it got better as the story progresses. Background score by Arafat Mohsin Nidhi, editing by Sazal Alok & cinematography by Tuhin Tamijul were the other highlights of the series. The ending hinted towards Bodh Season 2 which may arrive soon. Also, the much-awaited Karagar Part 2 will be streaming on Hoichoi on 15th December 2022.

Final Words:

Director Amitabh Reza Chowdhury’s brilliant storytelling & solid performances from Afzal Hossain, Sarah Alam, Shahjahan Shamrat, Runa Khan, Orchita Sporshia, & Khairul Basar make Bodh Season 1 series a must-watch.
