Abhay Season 3 review: Kunal Kemmu and Vijay Raaz shine but this thriller is undone by lazy writing

Abhay season 3 review: Ken Ghosh’s thriller web series features strong performances by Kunal Kemmu and Vijay Raaz but falters because of weak writing.

Abhay season 3 review: Vijay Raaz and Kunal Kemmu have given strong performances but lazy writing dilutes the show.

When Abhay began three years ago, it followed a rough case-of-the-episode format with an overarching story following the titular hero through the season. In season 3, however, there are no individual cases barring one in the first episode. Every episode from thereon grapples with one story. That approach makes the show much different from its previous two iterations. But it does not make it necessarily better. The third season includes new elements and bad guys but also takes away some of the aspects that made the show successful, diluting it in the process.

Abhay follows UP Police SP Abhay Pratap Singh (Kunal Kemmu), who heads the Special Task Force and solves violent and gruesome crimes. And Abhay must do all this while battling his personal demons and making sure his past doesn’t catch up with him. Throughout the season, he is both the hunter and the hunted, as he squares up against a charismatic cult leader hell-bent on mass murder (Vijay Raaz).

Abhay has toned down on the gore and violence this time around and left something to the viewer’s imagination too. That much is refreshing. The show was never a whodunnit. You always knew who the killer was. The show’s core was how this supercop tracked the killer in a way that seemed elusive to others. That journey made the show engaging. And that’s what is missing here. We no longer get a front row view of Abhay Pratap Singh’s brilliant and twisted mind as he solves the cases. Things just fall into place themselves.
