Gun-wielding males, a gunshot, a homicide and a variety of chaos. This made for the trailer of SonyLIV’s authentic internet sequence Undekhi, and whereas watching it, I believed to myself, “No, not another dark thriller with the same old cat and mouse narrative.” But, after watching the 10-episode sequence, I arrived at a special conclusion. Undekhi is a well-crafted and intelligently scripted story that can maintain you engaged all through.
Undekhi opens when the untoward has already occurred: a police officer is killed in Sunderbans. The DSP of the realm, Barun Ghosh (Dibyendu Bhattacharya) is looking out for 2 tribal ladies, the prime suspects within the case, however they’ve fled to Manali. Meanwhile, in Manali, one of many ladies is shot useless by the drunkard head of the Atwal household, Papaji (Harsh Chhaya) throughout a stag occasion. Her physique is eliminated by Rinku (Surya Sharma), the foster son of Papaji and troubleshooter of the household. Now, his targets are the useless woman’s pal (Apeksha Porwal) and the marriage photographer Rishi (Abhishek Chauhan) who has recorded your complete crime.
While Rishi’s life turns the other way up after witnessing the crime, the Atwal household is as calm and chill as they had been earlier than the homicide. Papaji who’s wealthy and has all the large ministers, police commissioners by his aspect, roams round suggesting one answer to each drawback, “Goli maar daange” (we’ll shoot the one creating bother). And, as Rinku goes round killing, kidnapping and threatening enemies (together with DSP Ghosh), the viewers is made to suppose how deeply corruption is embedded in our system and the way justice is denied to the underprivileged and less-powerful.
Every episode of the online sequence comes with a brand new twist. By the top of the episode, the writers go away you considering, and anticipating one other disaster, you shortly transfer to the subsequent episode. While the sequence is darkish and intense, a little bit of comedian aid comes from Dibyendu Bhattacharya and Harsh Chhaya’s characters.
Apart from a crisp script, Undekhi boasts of strong performances. Dibyendu is pleasant as a Bengali DSP whose calmness brings some aid amid a lot bloodshed and violence. Harsh Chhaya as Papaji makes certain you despise him. Surya Sharma is convincing as dreadful Rinku, and model-turned-actor Apeksha Porwal portrays each her components ably. Abhishek Chauhan as Rishi, the one man who has a conscience on this morally corrupt world, is nice too.
