Review Roundup: Shefali Shah returns with a gritty Delhi Crime 2 sophomore; Huma Qureshi-Sohum Shah show how to make an impactful political thriller with Maharani 2; Pankaj Tripathi's Criminal Justice 3 relies heavily on his shoulder


OTT giants like Netflix, SonyLIV and Disney+Hotstar charted out a proper plan to keep the audience busy and entertained over the weekend and the upcoming festive week. With sequels to shows like Delhi Crime, Maharani and Criminal Justice dropping in, there's no scope for boredom. 

If web shows are your favourites, it's time to binge-watch the recently released Delhi Crime 2, Maharani 2 and Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach with your family members. While the Shefali Shah-led thriller is proving to be a gritty watch, Huma Qureshi & Sohum Shah's show packs the right political punch. Criminal Justice has Pankaj Tripathi's fine performance. If there's a doubt regarding what's to be watched, here's our suggestion!

Delhi Crime 2

Can Shefali Shah ever go wrong? Never! Returning to the Netflix franchise-Delhi Crime, as Deputy Commissioner of Police, Vartika Chaturvedi, she makes a strong statement on the class divide with Rajesh Tailang, Rasika Dugal and Tillotama Shome.

This time around, DCP Vartika and her team's fight is against a serial killer gang that violently murders and robs affluent elderly citizens in South Delhi. Inspired by the crimes conducted by the kaccha-baniyan gang, Delhi Crime 2 is a sharp, gritty and incredibly dark depiction of society.

Maharani 2

Breaking the jinx of problematic second seasons, Huma Qureshi and Sohum Shah are back with a fantastic and engaging edition of their show Maharani. It seems the makers carefully read reviews of Maharani season 1 and took every criticism positively to work on improving the franchise. 

Needless to say, Maharani 2 is exactly how a show on politics has to be made. Headlined by two powerhouses-Huma and Sohum, it will keep the audience hooked for hours. It clearly shows the actors in their full glory. 

Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach

Pankaj Tripathi is back as Madhav Mishra in Rohan Sippy-directed show Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach. While Pankaj is at his best, as usual, the show loses its steam quite early. The plot of the show revolves around a twisted murder case of a popular child star Zara Ahuja, and the prime suspect of her murder is her own brother, Mukul Ahuja. 

Despite an impactful performance by Pankaj, Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach suffers from a poorly imagined script and mediocrity.
