Season 1 of the popular show ended at the point where Aarya was running away from the crazy she was forced into. Season 2 takes a short leap and begins while she has camouflaged in the new surrounding. But the ghost from the past never lets her live peacefully and she is pulled back to the same muck. She returns and her foes get activated.
Written by Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh (replacing Sandeep Shrivastava) and Anu Singh Choudhary, Aarya is more aware of its audience this time. The makers know they have marinated their viewers enough in this universe to directly begin season 2 without wasting any time. The season opens up to a pivotal court hearing and Aarya is brought back to the centre.
The show is from the perspective of a woman who was disinterested and clueless about the game she was forced to play. So the screenplay was always a journey leading to a twist leaving the audience shocked by the end. But Aarya is now clever and she knows the trick, and the audience has evolved with her too. Acknowledging the fact the writing take a shift. The conclusion is revealed first and the journey to it is suspense.
Since season 1, the show has used television dramatics and most of the time to their profit. While it is on the verge of becoming a soap opera, the writers make sure they add more subtle narratives. Khan played by Vikas Kumar becomes a pivotal part. He is a police officer who is in love with a man. But the two men never allow the negativity to enter their guard. They are just a couple discussing their wedding outfits. Such a beautiful, subtle and needed narrative.
Ram Madhvani, Vinod Rawat and Kapil Sharma in their direction go deeper into the emotions of their lead characters this time. There’s longing, revenge and regret all around and they capture it. Sudip Sengupta’s camera follows these people like someone’s stalking them. Vishal Khurana’s music is definitely a high point. A track by the end titled Khele Masaane Mein Hori Digambar is a treat. Please release an audio format of it soon.
