Guys, Kaali 2 is a keeper. Paoli Dam nails it in this thoroughly engrossing, haunting thriller that fulfills its season 1 promise.
Kaali 2 review
Moving ahead in to and fro format from season 1. While of the episodes of Kaali season 1 where named after the different forms of Goddess Kali – Kali, Pitambari, Tara, Kamala, Bhuvaneshwari, Matangi, Dhumavati, Bhairavi. The Season 2 is named after situations/circumstances and how the power of Kali adapts to such challenges like Agyaata – The Exile, Sankata – The crises, Kaalraatri – The long dark night.
As the story unfolds with Nabarun Bose’s involving background score, the series created and directed by Arita Sen and Rohan Ghose takes it snaky turns that offers a tribute to those lurid thrillers by the doctors like Brian De Palma and so on.
Created by Arita Sen and Rohan Ghose on a story by Arita Sen with screenplay by Rohan Ghose(also Hindi dialogues), Konark Mukherjee and Reetrashi Dutta, the most striking feature of Kaali 2 that the writer director team never deviates from the standards set in the first season.
Paoli Dam once again makes a statement. With her eyes speaking in volumes, the actress superlatively portrays the women who can go at any lengths to save her son in a haunting performance.
Other actors do chip in with solid support. Chak De fame Vidya Malvade spins a surprise, the versatile Chandan Roy Sanyal is perfectly restrained while Pataal Lok fame Abhishek Banerjee justifies his tag of the new menace in town.
The author was given the access to first three episodes and the above opinion is purely based on the terrific success of the Kaali season 1 and the way the makers have maintained the tempo, zest, loyalty in the juicy three episodes of Kaali season 2. (a bit early but still going with 3.5 stars, do wait for the complete review of all episodes of Kaali season 2 coming soon, it can most probably be 4, – my gut feeling)
