Web Series Review: Asur 2 : Bollywood News – Bollywood Hungama

Asur 2 is the story of a faceless man wreaking havoc in the country. The season begins immediately after the events of the first part. Dhananjay Rajput aka DJ (Arshad Warsi) is disheartened after failing to catch the mysterious Shubh Joshi. He flees Dharamshala and takes refuge in a monastery. Here he meets a young boy Ananth (Atharva Vishwakarma) who has a deep understanding of the realities of life. Nikhil Nair (Barun Sobti) is in deep shock over the loss of his daughter Riya. His wife Naina (Anupriya Goenka) is also heartbroken, but is trying her best to trace Swati, who killed Rhea. Her efforts prove successful as she finds him in Manali. Shubh, on the other hand, informs the CBI that he is about to kill three people at the same time ̵1; 9:05 pm. He also leaves clues to the location but does not reveal who his target is. Despite CBI’s best efforts, Shubh is able to eliminate all three of his targets. The CBI is scratching its head as they are unable to understand how all the three victims died of heart attacks, that too at the same time. Meanwhile, Ishani (Adithi Kalakunte Shyamprasad) joins the CBI. He is sharp and intelligent and while working on the murder case of Officer Lolark Dubey (Sharib Hashmi), he learns that Rasool Sheikh (Ame Wagh) may be the murderer. She also informs her superior, Shashank Awasthi (Pawan Chopra) and later Nikhil about her observation. Both don’t take him seriously, especially because he doesn’t have any solid proof. As the CBI struggles to find Shubh and stop him from committing more murders, a surprising development takes place. The ATF (Anti-Terrorist Force) takes up the case, which is headed by an officer named Paul (Meyang Chang). Nikhil, Nusrat Saeed (Riddhi Dogra), Naina, Ishani and Rasool are forced to work with Paul, which leads to disagreements and arguments. What happens next forms the rest of the series.

Web Series Review: Asur 2

The story by Gaurav Shukla and Abhijeet Khuman is thrilling and commendable. Screenplay by Gaurav Shukla and Abhijeet Khuman is very engaging. There is a lot happening in the show every moment and one cannot stop himself from getting into it. The way the writers have fleshed out Shubh’s character and his thought process, it looks believable. The dialogues of Gaurav Shukla, Abhijeet Khuman and Suraj Giani are strong, especially the dialogues of Shubh and Wonder Boy Anant. In fact, without these loud one-liners, Asura 2 would not have created the desired impact.

Oni Sen’s direction is excellent. They have successfully taken the tension level up a notch as compared to last season. He has also worked on character arcs and in this connection he has hit a six with the character of Shubh. This time, the audience learns more about his journey and his true intentions. The way he tricks the CBI and keeps them confused makes for a great watch. Moreover, the tracks of DJ, Naina, Nikhil, Nusrat etc. are also an important part of the show and Oni Sen has been able to seamlessly blend them with the main narrative. Another achievement of his is that although it is 8 episodes long, it never gets boring or slow.

On the other hand, the cinematic liberties abound. Shubh is able to successfully execute all his plans without even hinting to any agency and after a point it becomes too much. There are too many characters and one can lose track of who is who. Things also happen according to convenience. At one point in the show, the CBI officers are able to trace a hideout by probing locations with high data consumption. Amazingly, they do not use the same methodology to track down Shubh, though they were able to trace the area where he is based.

Web Series Review: Asur 2

Asur 2 begins with a recap of the first season. It was much needed as season 1 was released 3 years ago. After establishing the characters and their traumas, the makers introduce the story and the craziness. The murder sequence of the three victims in the first episode is interesting. Some other memorable scenes are Ishani sneaking into Rasool’s house and what happens after that, Nusrat’s kidnapping episode, DJ meeting Vrinda Srivastava (Barkha Sengupta) and Shubh’s past. Anant’s scenes, especially in the second last episode, are also superb. The finale episode is really interesting and ends the season in a great way.

Speaking of acting, Arshad Warsi is excellent as always. He is known for his comic timing and in this series, he has been able to successfully break that stereotype and deliver a worthy performance. Barun Sobti is a natural and able to bring out the trauma so real. Anupriya Goenka has good screen presence and delivers a top-notch performance. Riddhi Dogra does well but gets sidelined. Also forced to track down his family. Aditi Kalkunte Shyamprasad rocks the show despite having limited screen time. Abhishek Chauhan (Shubh) also has a limited role but a memorable one. Veshesh Bansal (Kishore Shubh) is furious. Gaurav Chopra (Kesar Bharadwaj) is dependable. Ameya Wagh is good enough and this time he instills fear. Meiyang Chang looks every inch a no-nonsense, outspoken officer. Pawan Chopra is decent. Atharva Vishwakarma is adorable. Barkha Sengupta is fair. Pramod Moutho (Professor Venkata Rao) and Anurita Jha (Kamini) do very well. Kabir Jai Bedi (Kevin), Sameer Malhotra (Arjun Bhalla), Neha Vyas (Swati) and others are fine.

Dharamraj Bhatt’s background score is peppy and adds to the impact. Ramanuja Dutta’s cinematography is neat. Lensman captures the diverse locations beautifully. Sheetal Duggal’s production design is apt. Shubh’s whereabouts, in particular, look different. Sunil Rodrigues’ actions are limited but impressive. Vijayalakshmi Soni’s costumes are realistic. Charu Takkar’s editing is sharp.

On the whole, ASUR 2 is a worthy sequel and will be loved for its thrilling and interesting moments, powerful dialogues and exemplary performances. The first part has a lot of followers and moreover, the new season will be available for free on Jio Cinema. As a result, it may garner record viewership.
