Aarya 2, Sushmita Sen, Aarya 2 review

 

They say you win some, you lose some, but looks like Aarya had to lose it all to win what she treasured the most. Sushmita Sen is back with her thrilling series Aarya season 2 and it was surprising to see that the second season was just as gripping as the first one if not more. Sushmita Sen is all set to make you bite your nails, hang on the edge of the seat praying for dear life while you are gripping the screen.

The series begins with Aarya’s brother Sangram (Ankur Bhatia), father Zorawar (Jayant Kripalani) being tested in court for their crime and Tej’s murder. While Aarya was to flee to New Zealand with her kids after apparently sorting the mess in India, she had to take a turn down to Australia. However, the dark business has not left her back as she is pulled into the rabbit hole once again. Aarya is back and her family is buzzing with the loud whisper of her return, however, is anyone happy? Doesn’t look like it! With everyone around Aarya wanting her dead, how will she survive the constant gun to her head?

It goes without saying that Sushmita Sen has outdone herself once again in this season. The grit and determination of a mother to hold on tight to her family are shown beautifully across. The excellent direction has shined through and it can be experienced in every frame. Sushmita has delivered her dialogues with so much power and the closing scenes with, “Yeh kahani abhi khatam nahi hui hai” sure does give you chills. Aarya has turned into what she didn’t want or predict but the transition sure was a thrilling ride.

The cinematography, edition and music of Aarya are applaud-worthy as there is no excess of anything that will dilute the gripping storytelling. While we do miss the fast-paced plot from season 1, the slow-burn of Aarya 2 will leave you wanting more. There is a rhythm to the 8 episodes which strung along perfectly.

The cast of Aarya 2 is very constricted to a bunch of mains who make the surviving mother’s life a living hell. But the grandeur has been spread wide just like the first season.

With a promise of the Kahani still being incomplete, we bid goodbye to season 2 sure on a very interesting note. It was not what we expected of Aarya to become. Aarya 2 is just an amazing watch like the first season minus the stretchy plot beyond extent.
