Breathe Into The Shadows Review: the second season
Released two-and-a-half years ago, Amazon Prime's 'Breath' web series played an important role in expanding the market for the Hindi Baba series. This was Amazon Prime's second Hindi web series after 'Inside Era'. Apparently people were interested in season two. Abhishek Bachchan started OTT with season two "Bread in the Shadow". That's why people were waiting for it.

In the first season, it was a father who is ready to do anything to save his son. This time it's a father and mother who go all the way to save their daughter. In the first season, the story was from Mumbai, this time from Delhi. Avinash Sabharwal (Abhishek Bachchan) and Abha Sabharwal (Nitya Menon) are very happy in their world with their six-year-old daughter Sia (Ivana Kaur). Avinash is a famous psychiatrist and aura cook. One day, Siya is suddenly kidnapped. A few days earlier, a medical student Gayatri (Resham Srivardhan) was kidnapped from Noida. Both have had no idea for months. After nine months, Kidnapper's message comes to Avinash that he needs to work as a kidnapper if he wants Siya to be alive. After that, one person is killed ...
In the meantime, Chief Inspector Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh) also comes to Delhi with a transfer. He is accompanied to Delhi by Sub-Inspector Prakash Kamble (Hrishikesh Joshi). Kabir is assigned a case for this murder. Although this case wants to lead the fiery chief inspector Jeba Rizvi (Shraddha Kaul) from the Delhi Crime Branch, Kabir is responsible. Jeba is not satisfied with that. Kamble and Jai Prakash (Srikanth Verma) also work with Kabir in this case. Meanwhile, a woman is also killed. Avinash also joins this case as an expert ...
Whether films, television programs, or web series, if they appear in second, third, or even more installments, they must be compared with the previous installments. If you compare the second season of 'Breath' with the first, it would have had no such effect. There are two main reasons for this. First, its length and second, its speed. It has 12 episodes averaging 45 minutes, while the first season only had eight episodes of 35 to 40 minutes. Season one was full of thrills, but season two lacks something. There seems to be a dose of thrill in the first scene, but as the story progresses, the series gets narrower.
Now the second disadvantage. The most important thing in a psycho-crime show is its speed, but the second season of Breath is slow. By the way, it is not boring, although it is long and slow. In the sixth episode itself, the killer appears before the audience, but the eagerness to know how the story will take shape. The script's detailing is good, but the characters could have been better worked out. Mayank Sharma's direction is fine, but he can't leave the impact like in season one.
Abhishek Bachchan made his debut on the digital platform. His acting is fluid, although his character is not well-made. Amit Sadh has once again acted strongly. He influences the role of a capable policeman with guilt feelings. Nitya Menon's acting is good too. She looks confident. Hrishikesh Joshi is also effective. Srikanth Varma has good comic timing. Plabita Borthakur plays Pyari as Meghna. Resham Shrivardhan's work is good too. Jeba Rizvi lived up to her character. N. in the role of Pa. Shruti Bapna's performance in the roles of Ravi and Natasha Garewal is remarkable. All other artists also did their part. Overall, I would not be disappointed to see this series.
