Sampurna 2 Web Series Review:

The story of Sampurna 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off. Nandini (Rajnandini Paul) continues her battle against her husband, Ruku (Anubhav Kanjilal). Currently, Sampurna (Sohini Sarkar), also known as Mumu, and Nandini are residing together in Sampurna's parents' home, along with her mother (Manasi Sinha), brother (Bhaswar Chatterjee), sister-in-law, and niece.

Just when it seemed like they were on the brink of losing the case, renowned lawyer Hirak Lahiri (Kaushik Sen) arrives and makes an appeal to the judge to represent Nandini. The judge grants his request.

However, Sampurna's childhood trauma resurfaces with Hirak Lahiri's arrival. At the age of 10, she was molested by Hirak Lahiri, who also happens to be her uncle. This unwelcome visit dredges up nightmarish memories for her. Sampurna shares a strong bond with her husband, Piku (Prantik Chatterjee).

Nandini initially admires Hirak Lahiri for his timely intervention and assistance in winning the case. But as she uncovers his darker side, she begins to resent him. Will Sampurna muster the courage to seek justice against the wrongs committed by Hirak Lahiri?

The courtroom drama begins on a lackluster note but gains momentum when Kaushik Sen's character enters the scene. Sen, known for his versatility, delivers a captivating performance in the negative role of Hirak Lahiri. This role marks another stellar performance for Sen, following his outstanding act in Surajit Chatterjee's Mr. Kolkata.

Prantik Chatterjee shines as Piku, delivering a stellar performance. His unwavering support for his wife, Nandini, and his indirect support for her pursuit of justice, even when it means going against his own family, deserves applause.

Sohini Sarkar portrays the titular character competently, though her previous performances in Season 1 of this series and Srikanto showcased her talent more prominently. Manasi Sinha's performance is adequate, while Bhaswar Chatterjee, Laboni Sarkar, Anubhav Kanjilal, and Rajat Ganguly have limited opportunities to shine due to the script.

The music arrangement and background score by Shibasish Banerjee are praiseworthy. The series' screenplay and dialogues, crafted by Anuja Chattopadhyay, along with the story and additional screenplay by Soumyabrata Rakshit, contribute significantly to the series' impact. Editor Subhajit Singha and cinematographers Tuban and Ramyadip Saha make valuable contributions.

Out of 6 episodes, the first two episodes of the series start off slowly, the pace picks up from the third episode onwards. Director Sayantan Ghosal's execution is decent, but considering his previous work on series like Indu Season 1, Lalbazar, and Gora Season 1, I have expected more. Anticipations are high for his upcoming films like Saralakkha Holmes and Rabindra Kabya Rahasya.

Sampurna 2 is worth watching because of the solid performances from Kaushik Sen & Sohini Sarkar but the pace of the series was a bit slow & it was not as engaging as season 1.
