‘Breathe: In the Shadows’ talks about family, past, and sin, Full Review

Abhishek Bachchan has made his digital debut in the web series ‘Breathe: Into the Shadows’. In the series, Abhishek Bachchan plays the role of Avinash Sabrawal, a psychiatrist.

His six-year-old daughter Sia is abducted. Nine months after the abduction, Kidnapper suddenly demands that a man be killed if he wants a daughter. Kidnapper also said that the man should not have been killed at all, but that he should have been the victim of his own anger and lust.

Avinash is ready to accept Kidnapper for his daughter. Avinash works as a psychiatrist for the police.

The first season of ‘Breath’ was set in Mumbai, while the second season is in Delhi. Last season was also based on what a person can do for children and family.

This time too it is the same theme. Director Mayank Sharma tries to justify that it is not wrong if a person kills someone to save the family. Mayank Sharma has also used a split personality to create suspense in the characters.

Mythological stories have been used to justify the work of characters including Avinash, Kabir Sawant, Shia Sabarwal, Abha Sabarwal, Sheryl. However, this kind of philosophy cannot impress.

When Abhishek Bachchan was seen in a gray shade, he seemed to have lessened the effort. Nitya Mann has done average acting as Abha Sabrawal. She looked better in ‘Mission Mars’. Amit Sadh was seen in the role of Kabir Sawant in the first season and the second season. Sheryl is played by Sayyami Khair. However, he did not deserve special work.

The show’s villain seems to have seen David Fincher’s’ Seven ‘and Tom Hanks” Inferno ‘. The villain commits murder in the series in such a way that it seems as if the person has fallen victim to his own anger, lust, and lies.

In both of these Hollywood films, the villain does not kill but kills. Mayank Sharma’s crime series seems to be a family drama somewhere. Mayank Sharma did not use the split personality properly. Every scene in the thriller demands solid logic.

The logic disappears when the plot of split personality comes up here. Accidents happen constantly with the characters and it’s boring to watch.
