Story Line :
Avinash Sabharwal (Abhishek Bachna) , a psychiatrist happily lives with his wife Nitya Menen (Abha), chef and their 6 year old daughter until, an unfortunate event turned their life upside down. Their daughter Siya gets kidnapped from middle of a birthday party, who was also a juvenile diabetic patient and needs insulin injections four times a day. Almost 9 months passed by and they couldn’t find their daughter but one find day a kidnapper send one puzzled message , asking the couple to execute some killings to save their daughter. As couple had no other choice, they accepted his demands. Each episode revels the reason behind the murder mystery and backstories and relationship of each killing with the mythological character” Ravana”.There are lots of twist and turns in the story, some makes sense and some not. When the identity of the killer gets revealed you do feel astound but the reasoning behind it again makes you feel baffled. On the other hand , you will see a parallel story of Amit Sadh(Kabir), the Police Inspector and how he get involved in a search of a serial killer.
First few episode of the series slips and falls. It lacks emotional aspects and the mystery and suspense created were also not that great. When you think of a thriller you accept nail biting scenes and gripping plot, both were missing hugely. The character of Abhishek and Nithya could have been explored more. They focused more on the narration even when certain scenes required characters to show some strong emotions. Especially when the couple came to know about their daughter’s kidnapping or when they were forced to kill people . It was baffling to see that Avinash who is a psychiatrist supposed to be sensitive, was not grappled or dread ,in fact took killing like a pro killer. There were hardly any suspense and everything looked extremely predictable.
Abhishek Bachan occupies maximum screen space and has got some moments but lacked spontaneity. Nithya was good but due to weak narration her role also lack depth.In fact according to me supporting characters have done better job than other main leads. This series leaves you with too many unanswered questions. If director would have added more intense drama , it could have been a better series.
