‘Abhay,’ is a ZEE5 Original Hindi web series. The Season 1 and 2 of the series were launched on the ZEE5 streaming platform. Both the seasons were a success and were able to hold attention and keep the audience hooked till the end. Director Ken Ghosh is bringing back the excitement with Abhay Season 3. The series’ third instalment is slated to be released exclusively on ZEE5. But first, let’s look back at Abhay S1 and S2 of the web series to see what’s in store for the upcoming season.
Abhay Web series (Season 1)
Season 1 premiered in February 2019, and it was actor Kunal Khemu’s first digital series. He portrayed Abhay Pratap Singh, a Special Task Force cop tasked with solving criminal crimes. The first episode was based on the infamous 2006 Nithari case, in which a man and his housekeeper lured children into their home, murdered them, and then cooked and ate their remains. The series was hailed for its true portrayal of the crime, as nasty as it was.
Several cases are masterfully depicted throughout the eight episodes, each with its own story. As a bhajan plays in the background, a son kills his parents by beating their heads with a cooker. A butcher who murders individuals, and then scatters their body parts over the city. Instead of dating, a dating app is used to perpetrate heinous acts. Govind, played by actor Namit Das, is a reoccurring villain in the web series. And it is Abhay who is tasked with solving these heinous crimes.
Abhay Web series (Season 2)
In the second season, Khemu reprises his role as Abhay. This time, he’s being blackmailed by a criminal genius, played by Ram Kapoor, who is serving time in prison. He has kidnapped the children and pledges to return them only if Khemu solves the cases he has given him. Harsh, played by Chunky Panday, is a two-faced crook with connections to both the cops and the criminal underworld. Panday’s character has cannibalistic impulses, while a female sex worker is described as a “lustful murderer.”
Overall, Season 2 includes parallel plotlines, with each episode being equally thrilling. Also, Khemu’s acting in Season 1 and 2 is worth watching.
