Jamtara Season 2 Review

If counted in one line, the second season of the web series ‘Jamtara: Sabka Number Aayega’ is weaker than the first. The grip created through the story in the first season seems to be missing in the second. The detail of the story reduces its impact. Amit Sial hasn’t been as effective on the series’ strongest character, Bridesh Bhan, as Roopal. The inaction of the second character, Sunny, due to a bad leg, also reduces the interest of the story. Many new actors have been brought into the series, but only one character is remembered until the very last moment. That is Rinku, whose artist name is not known, but his unique performance is the most effective in the series. Seema Pahwa as Ganga Devi in ​​the new characters has not been able to leave the impact that she is known for. Sparsh Srivastava does not have much to do with the character of Sunny.

Anshuman Pushkar is as good as ever in character as Rocky, but his character has remained a sideline in the series. In the character of SP Dolly Sahu, Aksha Pardasani does not seem to be the right choice since the first season. An actress with a dominant image should have been cast instead of her. After Rinku, if any character has had the biggest impact, she belongs to Gudiya Mandal. The magic of her acting is visible from the first to the second season. Monica Panwar has done full justice to her character. Apart from this, Dibyendu Bhattacharya in the role of Inspector Biswa impresses in both the second and first seasons. Everyone is convinced of the easy and simple interpretation of it. As far as the story is concerned, more details have been given in this season. Along with the new characters, many small stories run parallel to the main story. That is why there is often confusion.

The dialogues of the web series are effective. For this Kanishk and Ashwin Varman deserve congratulations. “There was a time when there were thieves, now the time of thieves is gone, right now where are we going, they are the thieves of today”…”Jamtara: Sabka number will come”, “The country stays no money, not from the leader.” Dialogues like “So Chambal Tha, Ab Jamtara Hai” hide what is missing from the story. Director Soumendra Padhi hasn’t been able to make the second season as engaging as before, but it’s not that the series is bad. It will be a lot of fun if it is seen as a standalone series. If you compare both seasons, it’s a bit disappointing. Sayak Bhattacharya’s cinematography is excellent. In this political crime drama, he has also tried to show the natural beauty of Jharkhand through his camera. Overall, the second season of ‘Jamtara’ may not be the same as before, but it’s definitely worth watching.
