Rating: 2/5


The much-awaited second part of the web series “Kaali” is out now, and we can say that it gives you another roller-coaster ride where none of the scenes looks or feels unwanted. Paoli Dam has once again lived the character of Kaali gracefully, but Abhishek Banerjee’s Jing Liang the drug dealer is just too good. His acting woos you and makes you watch the series despite the merry go around ride in the first few episodes. Rahul Banerjee looks confused for what’s happening most of the time and Vidya Malvade fails to convey the emotions through her eyes.

As I proceeded with the story, I got myself in a strange position. Having said that, I was surely be mesmerized by Kaali’s sheer will power and acting skills (we’re talking about acting skills of “Kaali” here). The story was gripping, and I looked forward to watching it but at the same time the direction was a little wavering and so was the supporting cast.

The supporting cast totally ruined the game, without a doubt. The gunmen of Jing Liang, the constables, the goons, everybody out there looked funny. The gunmen of Jing Liang are most funny, they shoot someone unnecessarily and leave the ones they were really supposed to shoot. There was no reason for Jing Liang to keep Ashwin alive. He was simply kept alive due to lazy writing.

The direction could be better, as the only mistake we noticed in the first few episodes was that it moved back and forth. The poor direction and execution, made me feel dizzy.
