Aarya 2 Review: Story & Direction
A mother is said to be one of the most powerful people in the world because she has the courage to fight everyone for her children. While we've seen several examples of a mother's unconditional love and sacrifices on the big screen, Sushmita Sen brought this beautiful and selfless emotion to the big screen with a thrilling twist. The former beauty queen had undoubtedly left us wanting more after starring in the first season of Aarya last year. And she's back with the second season of the crime thriller.
To summarise what happened in the first season, Aarya Sareen (after losing her husband Tej) manages to resolve the greatest threat to her family and bravely confront Shekhawat. She was heartbroken when she discovered how her father plotted her husband's murder, but she was relieved to have gotten out of the drug business after killing Shekhawat.
It was, however, only the beginning of a new chapter. And now, the second season picks up exactly where the first one left off. While Aarya is now settled in Austria, her father, brother, and Shekhawat are still fighting for their bail in the drug case in court.
However, due to unavoidable circumstances, Aarya is forced to return to India, albeit reluctantly, to testify in the case. But she had no idea that new dangers awaited her in India. Not only are the Russians after her life for their Rs 300 crore consignment, but Shekhawat's father is also out to avenge his son's death.
Soon after Aarya settles into the security safe house, she is attacked, and she is forced to flee for her life once more. But she has no one to rely on this time. However, as the fierce tigress that she is, Aarya understands that she must forge a path for herself in order to keep her children safe. On the other hand, her family problems continue to worsen, adding to the suspense of who to trust and who not to trust.
Aarya has a clear goal in mind: to put an end to the chaos and get out of the nasty business as soon as possible. However, each episode introduces a new plot twist that not only adds to Aarya's problems but also keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Will Aarya be able to save her children? Will she be able to get away from the Russians and Shekhawat? These questions will linger in your mind throughout. While the plot of the crime thriller is intriguing, it appears to be a little dragged and very confusingly intertwined. The climax, on the other hand, serves as a fitting conclusion to the entire mystery.The creators have linked the story to the previous instalment, and there are some exciting twists.
Aarya 2 Review: Performances
In terms of performances, Sushmita Sen has once again managed to steal the show. She can be seen roaring as she resurfaces as the fearsome Aarya Sareen. Everything about her, from her expressions to her body language, acting prowess to panache, was spot on, and she was a joy to watch as she reprised this powerful role. Clearly, no one could have played this role better than she could.
Sikandar Kher, on the other hand, drew special attention with his blockbuster entry. He was once again the ideal supporter, and despite not having many words, he won hearts with his silence. Viren Vazirani, Virti Vaghani, and Pratyaksh Panwar, three young artists, appeared to be doing an excellent job with their respective characters.
Aarya 2 Review: Conclusion
Overall, Aarya season 2 has managed to live up to the hype. If not for the incredible crime thriller, watch it for Sushmita's powerful performance. However, if you feel like you're losing track of certain things in the second season, go back and review the first season.
