Mild thrill mostly

The story starts off with Aditya (Vikrant Massey) looking forward to a night out with friends, but plans go awry and the night soon turns into a murder mystery. Chances of fair retribution looks bleak as he has no recollection of the night. The story begins on a high note and ends on a high note, it's the middle that feels dragged. Few shots and segues are redundantly long and unengaging.

However, remarkable performances manage to lure in the viewers and deliver as much as they promise. Madhav Mishra (Pankaj Tripathi) a sloppy unethical lawyer who is on a journey of trnaformation into a conscientious and dedicated individual, is the saving grace and delivers a performance that's hard to forget. Performances by Jackie Shroff and Vikrant Massey are quite convincing and remain consistent with the central theme. Appalling revelations seem to be reserved for the last couple of episodes. Thrills, therefore, are sparse.

Another concern is a series of unwarranted coincidences, crucial to the plot, at the beginning which might be hard to swallow for a fastidious viewer, however, concerns can be rightly excused being an adaptation. The series is a bit far from competing with the big guns like sacred games but shines regardless in its niche.
