"A father's love can save a life... or take one," sets the tone for a dark and gritty series."A father's love can save a life... or take one," sets the tone for a dark and gritty series."A father's love can save a life... or take one," sets the tone for a dark and gritty series.
Well it is a crime thriller and there are some very minor loop holes and the climax is a little melodramatic, but it works. AB's performance made it work. Amit is too good. Buffed up physically and the performance is also at the next level from S1. But apart from that it is brilliant. It's at the level of series like the true detective just with more thrills.
And unlike many Indian series and movies there is enough attention to details and no, it doesn't treat the audience as being stupid. It doesn't explain everything in a platter. And absolutely no loopholes as such.
Now if you want to find loopholes you can find many in Money hiest and even God Father and The Dark Knight. But we are not there to scrutinize every scene, if the movie takes us to another experience and makes us stay there, it has done it's job. And this series does it's job brilliantly.
AB and AS shine throughout, but all the ladies and the police make their mark too. No character or cast is wasted.
And there are connections to season 1 too.
I would place Into the shadows among the top 3 series coming out of India. And even ok an international level it finds it place.
