Aarya Review: A Series That Wouldn't Let You Take Your Eyes Off


Aarya sets a fast pace. The crime thrilling story revolves around a woman thrust into the hot seat of her shady family business after some hesitation; she takes charge, growing in confidence and aplomb as she faces one challenge after another. It moves quickly, which is its best quality because, while the well-written plot, detailed characters, and smooth storytelling are all good, there are some dips, contrived scenes, and loose ends that we don’t have time to dwell on.

We are already on to the next thing when we notice a flat register. But the series never truly turns its gaze away from Aarya (Sushmita Sen), who is usually immaculate and dressed in gorgeous pastels and enormous solitaires plays the main heroine.

You wish she’d get a little rumpled, a little ruffled, especially when everything seems to be falling apart around her, and especially when she’s with her best pals, Sarao and Garg, both naturals.

A mother is regarded to be one of the most powerful and important persons in the world because she fights for her children against all odds. While we’ve seen countless films about a mother’s unconditional love and sacrifices, Sushmita Sen has once again brought this wonderful and selfless sentiment to the big screen, but with a fascinating twist.

What was season 1 about?

In season 1, Aarya’s husband Tej Sareen (Chandrachur Singh) is murdered by a masked man and she takes it upon herself to get to the bottom of the truth and bring the perpetrator to justice. Season 1 of the popular show ended with Aarya fleeing the muck she was forced to live in.

Aarya Season 2 Review:

Aarya was so composed and immaculate in season one. In season 2, we witness a sloppy Aarya with a messed-up haircut and a befuddled outfit. Running around has most likely caused her to change some aspects of her personality. Sushmita Sen plays the part of Aarya with her presence.

When the season first begins, she is terrified, but as it advances, she begins to roar. It’s great to see Sen return to the grid and develop into her role, especially as she matures into a woman who recognizes her inner toughness and learns to keep one step ahead of her scheming, heavy-handed father (Kriplani) and too-ambitious brother (Bhatia).

The closeness between Aarya and her son Veer, played by Viren Vazirani, is another highlight. He is now old enough to assist his mother in hiding proof and save her. A subplot involving Veer and his equally young ‘girlfriend’ grows squelchy, but it’s also realistic: it feels like two horny teenagers trying to get it on. It’s unclear whether this is a nod to the original, but it lends credibility to the series.

Each episode, on the other hand, delivers a fresh plot twist that adds to Aarya’s issues while simultaneously keeping you on the edge of your seat. Is it possible for Aarya to save her children? Is she going to be able to escape away from Shekhawat and the Russians?

These are the kinds of questions that will occupy your mind the entire time. While the criminal thriller has an intriguing premise, it appears to be a little prolonged and linked in a confusing manner. The climax, on the other hand, provides a perfect end to the entire enigma.

Aarya 2 is worth seeing because it isn’t a snooze fest. Once you’ve navigated the few glitches, you’re fine to go. In the end, there is Sushmita Sen dancing with a contented smile, far away from all the tensions. All that matters is that it appears to be liberating.
