As we have already stepped into 2022, the cinematic world has a lot to offer to its audience. From action movies to intense shows, this year is going to be a blissful one for the movie buffs. For this weekend, Netflix is offering its new thriller Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein. When you have talented actors like Tahir Raj Bhasin and Shweta Tripathi on board, you can surely expect a roller-coaster ride.

When the teaser was dropped, people were looking forward to watching the show. As per the trailer and teaser, it’s a twisted love story with underlying themes of an identity crisis, fate, and a cobweb of lies. It starts like a normal love story but soon turns into a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  

Bhasin plays Vikrant, a simple man who falls for fellow college student Shikha (Shweta), who reciprocates his love. Enters his childhood friend Purva (Anchal Singh) who is crazily in love with Vikrant and can go to any level to get him.  

Here’s the trailer:  

 

The official synopsis of the thriller reads, “A romantic simpleton, Vikrant, becomes an object of desire for Purva, who will go to any lengths to get him. As Purva’s ruthless efforts to make him hers begin to destroy all that he holds dear, the mild-mannered Vikrant finds a new side to him emerging. In order to escape Purva’s clutches and reclaim his life with his true love, Shikha, he goes down a dark path only to regret it later in this pulpy thriller.”

Set in the fictional town of Onkara, the psychological drama also features Saurabh Shukla, Surya Sharma, Brijendra Kala, Arunoday Singh, Anant Joshi, Sunita Rajwar, and Hetal Gada. 

The show has finally been released and has been streaming on the OTT giant from 14th of January. We saw the show way before it was released and we had mixed opinions about the show as it had the potential but it did lose its track. It’s surely watchable as the actors have done a brilliant job at the part but it’s the writing that either breaks or makes it. The show had all the components of making it a hit but the second half lost its grip and never got back on track. What didn’t work for us was the climax. We will not take away the fact that filmmaker Siddharth Sengupta did understand the twisted Shakespearean plot and showed how obsession can ruin lives.
