In the world of OTT, ‘Content is King’. Here stardom is not limited to a few people. According to the story, whoever acts brilliantly becomes a star. Artists like Pankaj Tripathi, Manoj Bajpayee, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Divyendu Sharma, Jaideep Ahlawat and Neeraj Kabi are the best examples of this. If a web series like Mirzapur is not made, then an artist like Pankaj Tripathi could never become a star. On the other hand, even the biggest players have failed in OTT. Because the content of his web series was not that strong. For example, take a look at Ajay Devgan’s web series ‘Rudra: The Age of Darkness’, which is streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar. Despite having such a huge superstar, the series has not been able to leave an impact on the audience. Instead, such a web series is airing on the OTT platform Sony Liv, which doesn’t feature any big stars, but based on its storyline, it keeps the audience hooked to the final scenes of the last episode. The name of this web series is ‘Anedakhi 2’, the first season of which was broadcast in the year 2020.
The web series ‘Undekh 2’, which is being broadcast on the Sony Live OTT platform, can be seen this weekend.
Ameya Sarada, Anahata Menon, Deepak Segal and Sumeet Bishnoi have written the story of this web series ‘Undekh 2’ under the banner of Applause Entertainment and Banijay Asia. We must thank the writing team that has created such a direct, flat and spectacular story in the middle of the winding roads of the mountains, in which the viewers are sinking episode by episode. Artists like Harsh Chhaya, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Surya Sharma, Aanchal Singh, Apeksha Porwal, Ankur Rathi, Nandish Singh Sandhu, and Meiyang Chang seem to be impressive with their solid performances without any star value. Director Ashish R Shukla has also done a great job. He seems to be out of the tribe of copycat directors. Known for his smooth and natural direction. His whole emphasis remains on showing history with natural wonder. On the big screen, he refrains from creating false emotions. This is the reason why his web series has become much better than the second web series ‘Rudra: The Age of Darkness’ made under the banner of Applause Entertainment. Which keeps interest alive while stirring up excitement in the audience.

Undekhi 2 web series review
The strongest aspect of ‘Undekhee’ web series season 2 is that the creators have kept the excitement going by taking the story forward in a new direction. The interest that aroused in the audience after watching the first season continues unabated in the second season as well. Although the success of the first season is considered difficult to replicate in the second, the team of makers who came back with a clear plan successfully executed it. When it comes to the artists’ performance, each artist has given one hundred percent of it. But Surya Sharma draws the most attention in the character of Rinku Atwal. Like the first season, his character has also been expanded in the second. As a loyal son, mobster and criminal, he manages to make a name for himself with his outlandish performances. At the same time, Divyendu Bhattacharya manages to make his mark in the role of a police officer. Although his character has been given less space this season, he has impressed as always despite having less screen space.
It will not be an exaggeration to say that actor Harsh Chhaya has given the best performance of his career in the character of Drunk Papaji. His intoxicating Punjabi insults seem genuine, as he lives his character to the fullest of his potential. Apeksha Porwal as Koel strikes a chord with the audience as a girl who is on fire to avenge her sister’s murder. She has brought to life a tribal girl with her acting, who looks strong on the inside but innocent on the outside. In the character of Teji Grewal, Aanchal Singh has also created a different identity from the multitude of characters and actors. His journey from hating the Atwal family to becoming one of them in some way is remarkable. It will be interesting to see him in new characters in the future. Along with this, the scenes shot in the plains of Manali look very beautiful. From the cinematography to the editing it has been done well. The background scores look perfect in every scene. Overall, the second season of ‘Andekh’ is just as exciting as the first. From the story to the acting of the actors, it is excellent. The Binch Clock can be done after lunch this Sunday.
