The series has already provided you the answers, but the way it ironically unfolds the questions brewing in your mind is worth enough to binge. Madhav Mishra’s trust on Anu and he, putting all his efforts to know the story hidden behind would make you feel the numbness. Kirti Kulhari has totally put the character of Anu down her nerves and her journey through the judicial custody, her pain she endures during her pregnancy and from corrupted results is what that brings in life to the sky-high imagination of the initiators. Nikhatt’s comeback is stronger than your expectations, and she fights against it not because she was a woman, but a human atlast.
The series turns everything topsy-turvy as it plays with the demon in you, to destroy it.
‘Most of the women you find here were treated worse than animals by their husbands, but they still consider a husband’s murder to be the biggest sin.’ The series questions your conscience that what is more wrong- a criminal outside or an innocent behind bars. Take a ride, binge it and you will live through every episode and details even though it takes you slowly.
