Aarya 2 Review : Sushmita Sen shines in this compelling crime thriller



The second season of Aarya, a Hotstar Specials show adapted from the Dutch crime drama series Penoza, does a commendable job of averting the pitfall and delivering eight episodes that chart their own course. Sushmita Sen carries on from where she left off in Season 1. With nary a false step, she delivers another exceptional performance packed with power, tempered with restraint and elevated with an instinctive feel for the workings of the mind of a harried single mother struggling to shrug off her past and forge a tenable future in an inimical world where it is tough to tell friend from foe. On her hesitant return from Australia to depose in court against her family, Aarya Sareen faces a vicious attack that leaves her with a bullet wound. It strengthens her resolve to flee back to safety outside India, but neither her daughter Aru (Virti Vaghani) nor the subsequent turn of events allow her to beat a hasty retreat.
