if you’re back in the world of asura After waiting long enough, there is no heart of glass. But if you skipped the first season and ended up here anyway, it’s a thrill of gasps and frenzy. The second season is a whirlwind of complications, thrown at you in one go. Gray characters take a deep dive, grief and sorrow take their toll on Hell and technology takes over the human race. This mythological thriller will get you on the edge of your seat at times, so be prepared.

Asura 2 Picks up from where we left off in season one. Kali, the destroyer of Kalyuga, is nearing his intention to wipe out humanity from the face of the earth. Asura, still undefeated, causes heinous mass murders, leaving the CBI officers starving to capture him. DJ (Arshad Warsi) is overcome by his ordeals by exposing himself to darkness.

The first four episodes made under the direction of Sen have power. Kali’s faith in Lord Vishnu made her plot to kill him more mercilessly. DJ finds solace in a monastery, but must return to reality before it fades away. The writing, screenplay and direction feel deliberate but convincing for a stretch.

If Arshad Warsi signed up for a challenging role in season one, he pushed his limits here. The actor showcases his versatility in one of the later episodes, resulting in a major change in the tight-knit series. Like small pieces in a big puzzle, Barun Sobti and Riddhi Dogra prove that an actor’s silence speaks louder when done right.

Anupriya Goenka once again tells through her eyes, leaves you in splits. Ameya makes her presence felt overwhelming, making her scenes the most bone-chilling. Special, Gaurav and Pawan give fine performances.

Asura 2 loses grip with the heavily crafted narrative around the technology, but it’s not something we don’t already know about. The characters keep swimming in the sink until the final reveal at the end.

Asura 2 Streaming now on Jio Cinema.
