Poison 2 is a ZEE5 Original series which released a few days back on the digital platform. I was surfing for an interesting series and thriller genre excites me so when I saw this one, I immediately made my choice. As the season 2 is not a sequel I could directly play the hit button on Poison 2.
Originally scheduled for April it got postponed owing to the pandemic situation. The wait was worth it, I binged watched the series in a day.
What stood out for me in the series was –
It marks the digital debut of Aftab Shivdasani and Raai Laxmi who play the main leads along with popular actors like Zain Imam, Vin Rana, Pooja Chopra and Asmita Sood. The choice of actors is pretty good as all of them have done justice to their respective roles and made their characters impactful.
I feel some of our Bollywood actors have shown much better performance and portrayal of characters on the digital platforms than the big screens.
I was watching Raai Laxmi for the first time and her performance is fantastic. Taher Shabbir was a surprise element for me in a negative role, I haven’t seen him like this before. What should I say about Pooja Chopra, she really impressed me in Aiyaary and in this series, she essays the role of a cop – Isha Khanna which stands out. I feel she deserves more opportunities to showcase her talent.
Have I missed someone?
Oh yeah, our main lead – Aftab Shivdasani or should I say Aditya Singh Rathore who will leave you charmed with his characterisation.
The basic storyline revolves around the core theme of ‘revenge,’ in both the seasons. This crime thriller is no different. The story and characters are different which is good in-fact because we get to watch something fresh.
Harsh (Zain Imam), Sara (Raai Laxmi) and Oscar (Vin Rana) run a company together and Aditya (Aftab Shivdasani) offers them a partnership deal which Sara accepts. What follows is a sequence of deceit, revenge and redemption.
Without divulging many details, I would share that these 11 episodes will entertain you and offer a complete story which won’t leave any unanswered questions. I feel Indian dramas do drag a bit sometimes but this wasn’t the case with this series.
One word kept lingering in my mind – #RevengeNeverEnds after watching this series.
Directed by Vishal Pandya who has films like Hate Story 2, Hate Story 3, Wajah Tum Ho to his credit, his style of presenting a crime thriller is quite reflective in the storytelling.
The title video of the series is very edgy and apt. I just loved everything about it the picturisation, lyrics and beats it perfectly describes the essence of the series.
The background score of the series is also good.
Poison 2 has got a rating of 7.3 ratings on IMDB and its popularity is gaining momentum on the charts. ZEE5 is innovating its digital platforms in many ways and leaving its viewers spoilt for choices to watch.
‘Revenge is sweet or sizzling’, its for you to watch but this series won’t disappoint you. If you watched this one; then do share your views.
