Undekhi Character Analysis
SonyLiv’s crime thriller web television series Undekhi 1 and 2 are ruling the hearts. To put it simply, some actors have done well in both the seasons of Ashish R Shukla’s web series which revolves around a power-drunk influential family. Undekhi 1 was released on July 10, 2020, and the second season on March 4, 2022.
The actors, Surya Sharma (Rinku), Anchal Singh (Teji Grewal), Harsh Chhaya (Mr Atwal/Papaji), Dibyendu Bhattacharya (DSP Barun Ghosh) to name a few, excel in their respective roles. Not only for the great acting skills of these actors, but the episodes of both seasons have been a treat for the eyes. Surya Sharma is the show-stealer.
Music, background score, location, sets and other elements of mise-en-scene have been A-class. Using curse words and abusive language speaks volumes about how corrupt and powerful families spend days and nights. Some of the family members (Atwal family) try their level best to hide the murder committed by the head of the family, Mr Atwal. Others do not want to bow down before the wrongdoers (Mr Atwal and his supporters and partners-in-crime). However, goodness prevails in the end.
Anchal Singh, as Teji Grewal, has taken everyone by surprise. She is beautiful and supremely talented. Her screen presence feels fresh. She essays the role of Mrs. Daman Atwal who instead of bowing down, challenges the Atwal family’s way of living and thinking. Her courage makes it easy for her to safe carry away (save) one dancer (an injured Apeksha Porwal as Koyal) in an ambulance by fooling Rinku (it serves as a twist for the first episode of Undekhi 2).
Indeed, a master plan from DSP Ghosh. The power (political, social and economic) of her husband’s family fails to dent her determination in saving the girl. She teams up with her husband, Daman Atwal (Ankur Rathee), and fights against Rinku and her corrupt father-in-law (Mr Atwal, played by Harsh Chhaya).
The other actors also excel in Undekhi. Ayn Zoya, Apeksha Porwal, Vaarun Bhagat, Sayandeep Sengupta, Meenakshi Sethi and Raynu Verma have been excellent. However, it is Surya Sharma (merciless Rinku Paaji) who steals the show with his stellar performance. Undekhi 2 also features the veteran actor Tej Sapru.
