Breathe: Into The Shadows 2 Review: Great Cast With an Unrefined Writing

Season 2 of Breath: Into The Shadows began streaming on Prime Video on November 9. Breathe 2 has such a promising cast, but somehow the storyline struggled to keep up.

J aka. Ravana, the serial killer is back with his killing spree. On November 9, Prime Video welcomed season 2 of Breathe: Into The Shadows. Starring Abhishek Bachchan in a spine-chilling double role of someone with a split-personality disorder. He is a normal person and a serial killer. The new season of Breathe is a decent watch.

About Breathe: Into The Shadows Season 2 

Directed by Mayank Sharma, Breathe 2 has a promising cast of Abhishek Bachchan, Amit Sadh, Naveen Kasturia, Saiyami Kher, Shrikant Verma, and Hrishikesh Joshi.

Streaming on Amazon Prime Video, Breath 2 has a total of 8 episodes, with a runtime of 45 minutes each. The language is Hindi. 

Storyline 

Breathe 2 started where it had left in the previous season. In season one, the daughter of Dr. Avinash Sabharwal (Abhishek Bachchan) and his wife, Abha (Nithya Menen), is kidnapped and the mysterious abductor starts making sinister demands. Later, it was unveiled that Dr. Avinash Sabharwal has a split personality named J, and was Ravana, the serial killer. For three years, Avinash/J/Ravana has been in an asylum. 

Things change to bad as J’s unpredictable former inmate Victor (Naveen Kasturia) enters the fray and breaks him out. Killings have restarted.

Breathe: Into The Shadows 2 Review: Great Cast With an Unrefined Writing

Breathe is a family drama mixed with a crime thriller. This Amazon Prime Video franchise began with a promise to be a powerful and intriguing show but slowly succumbed to an unrefined plot. The main storyline of Breathe takes us into the depravity of the human mind. Season 2 is a worthy follow-up, but it lacks depth. The series has everything, a talented cast, and mesmerizing acting, but it lacks fineness in the storytelling. 

The acting by the cast is impressive. Abhishek Bachchan evolved more in this season. 

This time, he played the two characters without a mask. His raw acting is quite convincing. The cold, sharp tone of brutality in J, and the tone of a worried father and a doctor, has been skillfully done. In this season more of the eccentric side of J is shown and less of Avinash.

Naveen Kasturia has lifted season 2. All the lights were shown on him as he acted the way one might have never imagined him doing at all. A total knock-out performance.

Nithya Menen, and Amit Sadh, felt just like the previous season, with no alteration in their acting. Saiyami Kher fell prey to a flawed script.

Although the second season has been kept short, which was a good idea, it still felt dragged. The storyline had numerous loopholes, which were patched up by an amazing background score and cinematography. The plan for murders was unrefined and seemed hasty. The killings were not justified enough and the police investigation arc was not enough. The climax fails to keep the hype up because of the predictability. 

A show that deals with a lot of complicated themes, and it was hastily written. The great casting has successfully carried season 2, but if the writing would have been more refined, it would have been a recommended must-watch.

So far, it is a decent watch with a lot of twists, turns, and drama.
