Breathe Season 2 Into the Shadows trailer is here. Amazon Prime Video has unveiled a three-minute trailer for the Abhishek Bachchan-starrer second season of the psychological crime thriller anthology series Breathe, which gives us an idea of what it’s about. Bachchan and Nithya Menen (Mersal) — making their first appearances in the world of streaming services — play Dr. Avinash and Abha Sabharwal, respectively, whose daughter Siya (Ivana Kaur, from Made in Heaven) is kidnapped.
Breathe Season 2 in a 6-year old girl is kidnapped by a mysterious masked man, who demands an unusual ransom. To save his daughter, Dr. Avinash Sabharwal must kill someone! How far will Avinash go to save his daughter?Starring Abhishek Bachchan, Amit Sadh, Nithya Menen, Hrishikesh Joshi, Srikant Verma, Plabita Borthakur, Saiyami Kher .
As a premise, it is as bizarre as the one in Breathe Season 1, in which R Madhavan plays a father who turns into a killer to save his sick little boy’s life. Anyone heard of show, not tell?
Bachchan (now credited as Abhishek A Bachchan) plays Avinash Sabharwal, a psychiatrist with a thriving practice in Gurugram.
The originally-problematic but eventually-righteous cop always comes to the rescue. Avinash and Kabir get into a cat-and-mouse chase trying to capture and uncover the kidnapper/serial killer.
By mind-boggling I don’t mean the kind that stumps you. A psychological condition — that I cannot mention without spoiling.
Abhishek Bachchan garnered all the headlines when he announced his digital debut with Amazon Prime’s ‘Breathe’ S2 but it didn’t come without monumental expectations. And it seems like Mayank Sharma’s second directorial outing after the first and hit instalment has fallen prey to same. Madhavan and the topical yet fresh premise it built on.
