Emotional disconnection

Breathe: Into The Shadows Review

It was difficult to connect to the characters of the show as there was not enough emotional depth. The expression and has not been portrayed as it should have. Abhishek Bachchan’s acting was good and his commitment towards the show was quite evident through his performance. Amit Sadh’s character is pretty interesting and portrayed his emotions quite well even with few dialogues through his emotional intensity. All other characters were portrayed nicely by other actors as well. The storyline is interesting but the execution was lacking and needs to be as good as its plot. With all its strength and flaws Breath is a series one can enjoy in their past time.

Breathe Into The Shadows Review- problems

Breathe: Into The Shadows Review

The characters seem to be missing the emotional elements. The sadness of losing a child and not knowing in what state their child is in is totally missing. The nature of their marriage and their relationship also was missing. The show could have expanded more into a different realm of the story however more stress was given to make the show look technical.

Focusing on the background it is highly imparting a creepy feeling to the viewers. It was dull and did not make much of an impact.

Female characters of the show

Menen is an actress whose acting skills are exceptional however expressing herself properly in the show is ineffective. She surely can pull off difficult scenes not just appear horrified throughout the entire show. Her character Abha does not seem to provide much to the story. She takes instructions from her husband and follows him. She never really think for herself or use her own cognition. Abha is a chef but she is rarely appears working, only Abhinav who is a doctor was doing his job in this thriller webseries. Abha plays no role in their master plan. Her character deserves more space in the show and Menen needs more content to use her skills.

Zeba Rizvi is a brilliant cop, despite that she does not contribute much to the case. the case is take up by Kabir savant and Zeba is rarely present. Meghna another female character of the show does not have much content or substance. Her role is not that significant. All over it is evident that the female characters of the show are not significant in comparison to the male characters.

Our Take

Breathe: Into The Shadows Review

Breathe: Into The Shadows is more inclined toward psychology and thriller. It creates urges to watch more of this series but as we reach towards the end it does not appear that conclusive. Each viewer would create their own versions of what could really be the truth behind these mysteries. There were several loopholes throughout the series.  Expectations were a bit higher due to the success of season one.

Rishi added humor to the seriousness of the show and to know the identity of the masked kidnapper. This series has a mythological touch. Least do we know about the characters and their relationships. The situation created in the movie gives no light to what is happening. Background music is more horrifying than the series.
