Amazon Prime released a new web series – Breathe: Into the shadows on 10th July, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Amit Sadh, Nithya Menen, and many more. Directed by Mayank Sharma, the series is about a kidnapping event.
The story commences when a little girl – Siya gets kidnapped from a birthday party she was attending. Her parents, Avinash Sabharwal (Abhishek Bachchan), a well-to-do psychiatrist living in Gurgaon. And his wife Abha (Nithya Menen), who is a chef starts losing their hopes as time passes.
Nine months later, the kidnapper approaches the couple and orders them to carry out a series of murders on his behalf to save their daughter’s life.
Here, we get to see some kind of mythological association to Ravan & his 10 heads. Each of the head designates 10 negative emotions.
We get to see Inspector Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh) taking a voluntary transfer from Mumbai to Delhi. He’s the investigating officer who is trying to figure out the connection behind the killings. We also get to see a girl in a wheelchair Meghna Verma played by Plabita Borthakur who has a past link with inspector Kabir.
Alongside Kabir, are the two other characters who make the most of their time on screen, Hrishikesh Joshi and Srikant Verma as Sub-inspectors – Prakash & JaiPrakash.
Also, there are many supporting characters in the web series. The web series is a mind twister with a squeeze of mythology to it. The actors did a magnificent work by exhibiting their characters.
The web series is engaging & gripping but does not have conclusive and authentic back to it. Also, there were some plot holes in the series, which depicts the loose writing.
Overall, it’s a good show and you can give it a shot!
