Samantar season 2 review

Season 2 of this exciting thriller begins with Kumar (Swwapnil Joshi) reading a page from Chakrapani’s (Nitish Bharadwaj) diary every day telling him about his future, and Kumar seems to have conquered fate with everything that goes by planned. A promotion, a new house and a car are his proud property. Wife Nima (Tejaswini Pandit) and son Sanju (Amrut Gaikwad) are back with him and things are better. But a prediction of a mysterious woman played by Sai Tamhankar seems to throw Kumar’s best-planned plans out of their course and try as he might to change fate, things start to go off track for him.

Director Satish Rajwade and Ambar Hadap maintain a good balance of emotion, drama, suspense, suspense and romance in this strangely snaky and wonderfully executed sequel to season 1.

Samantar season 2 adds more illusion and intimacy to the ongoing battle between karma, faith, destiny, love, lust, lust, greed, sin, guilt and redemption, and it gets a little darker and intensifies in its moral debate about kafkaish and hitchcockian tones . .

Director Satish Rajwade and author Ambar Hadap respect audience expectations and the old school tricks taught by great doctors like Hitchock and perpetuate the delusion between fact, fantasy and truth.

The smart title Samantar (rough translation: similarity also means parallel), the core idea of ​​a stranger who finds identity in pain / suffering in an unknown, is quite captivating. The story provides sufficient space to exploit the gray areas / shades of human nature and vulnerability of different individuals in different / same situations, and the author-director duo does so with flair. They do not go overboard (yes, the cuss words in many places were unnecessary). This cliché mentality that swears by OTT is a norm and it is a practice that must be followed religiously, must be corrected as soon as possible.

Swwapnil Joshi delivers once again and keeps you hooked with his staring eyes trying to find the reason behind what is happening to him. Swwapnil Joshi is fabulous in portraying the different nuances and he ensures that Kumar gets into your mind and heart and you start to feel for him.

Nitish Bharadwaj is excellent as Chakrapani, brilliantly subtle and nuanced, the actor in another avatar of a saarthi (tank – read the one who runs the show) of his karma, and the dharma from Kumar is a character of unseen complexity, and Nitish does it with the necessary poise.

Tejaswini Pandit is once again wonderful, and here she gets a place to showcase her range, and she does it fabulously.

Sai Tamhankar, the new addition adds the charming illusion to this series. Captivatingly striking and with clever use of body language and eyes, the actress gives a haunting performance.

Jayant Savarkar, Ganesh Revdekar and Sharad Wafgaonkar chip in with good support.

In terms of life and people, Samantar season 2 is also not prone to mistakes and errors. Certain things become inexplicable, there are leaps, and during the final episodes, the conflict should have been more intense.

But for audiences eagerly awaiting season 2 of Samantar, there is enough to make them hang on to this wonderfully executed & curiously snaky follow-up and the icing on the cake is that this writer has sensed the third season starring. .. Well for that binge watch the exciting season 2 of Samantar right now …
