The show brings an intense mysterious drama with Maya’s dark and intriguing character. The primary characters are sketched with good detailing to present them as strong contenders. Mrityunjay and Maya are the two battle elements in the story. Rudra and Rishi’s introduction scenes are fairly nice to watch. Maya remains a mystery to unfold with every episode. The supporting characters in Mrityunjay’s family are described in just the usual back up way.
Coming to actors, the show belongs to Jennifer and Ashish majorly. Both the actors play the intense and cool avatars with ease. Their switches into happy and thoughtful tense expressions come natural. Beyhadh belongs to Jennifer completely, but Ashish deserves an applaud for his amazingly subtle performance just as his character of a business tycoon should be. Shivin and Rajat are apt for their roles. Their will be more of them once the story progresses. Jennifer’s chemistry with Shivin and on screen pairing looks adorably fresh.
Shivin does complete justice to his character of Rudra. Costumes and sets are rocking as expected from Beyhadh. Maya is seen in just black costumes to express her hatred and revenge. She plays an out-and-out wicked and crazy girl this time. Her intentions are revealed, but her reasons will be revealing soon. Screenplay is gripping. It engrosses the viewers’ attention right from the first episode. Title track is also much deeply thoughtful going well with Maya’s character. Maya will be using Rudra and Rishi as pawns in her game. It is interesting to see if Mrityunjay holds good grip on his sons to get them on his side.
The revenge plot definitely holds good potential. Beyhadh Season 1 was a good success. With big hopes with Season 2, the show doesn’t disappoint. Its a must watch for romance-revenge thriller lovers.
