Director: Ken Ghosh

Kunal Kemmu as investigator Abhay Pratap Singh is back and interesting crime stories are woven yet again to keep the thrill quotient going. The legend director Ken Ghosh has done some terrific work with the edits and graphics. The entire screenplay drives your attention and will make you glued to your seats.

Short Review

Now, Abhay has moved away from his child Sahil and can dedicate his whole mind and time to solving crimes. Earlier, he was somewhat restrained due to homely duties and a troubled past. The storyline does not give him a clean slate here but, first-off, it’s fresh to see Abhay focus whole-heartedly on helping people without having to worry about his personal life.

Directed by Ken Ghosh the show will premiere on ZEE5. The promos have already excited the viewers like me who are waiting in anticipation. 

If you enjoy watching crime stories that play with your mind with unlimited suspense, thrill and drama, then you just can’t miss this one.

MAFIA- as one hears the name of the web series, thoughts of a serial killer or an underworld don pop in the head. Since the series has hit the OTT platform, it is the talk of the town.

As they start the celebration of their reunion, they play a social deduction game ‘MAFIA’ wherein, one is a policeman, one is a MAFIA, and others are villagers. MAFIA keeps killing the villagers till the policeman finds him. The plot of this web series is game-like that keeps the audience engaged. The game turns into a ‘game of life’ and everyone is deeply scared for their life as the real MAFIA is to be spotted else everyone would be dead and the same happens in the actual story as well.

No one knew that the psychological ‘MAFIA’ will come into their life as the real one! The unconscious murder in this psychological thriller would turn into a real one, one after another.

Namit Das is doubted since the beginning of his appearance for being the MAFIA but it was the past deed of these friends that came haunting them after six years.

Neha and Ananya are shown to depict the sisterhood in strong contrast to ‘bros-before-bros’. The story seems to blame the urban lifestyle of ‘drugs and sex’ as the root of all problems, however it seems to be to an extent.

Murder of the house-help Biduhua and Ananya’s seething rage and unresolved anger opens the issues of caste dynamics which are still prevalent in the non-urban pockets of India. So how it all did started? Is someone taking revenge of Biduhua’s murder? Is anyone planning to scare them and ultimately rob them? Are they really paying for their crime but who is MAFIA? Does class has any relation with the story?

The gruesome psychological thriller and a murder mystery asks many questions to the viewers and seems open ended leaving users looking forward to the next season of the ZEE5 Original MAFIA.
