Delhi Crime Season 2 Review: It has been 3 years since the Emmy Award Winning Netflix Series “Delhi Crime” was released and now it has arrived again with another much-awaited Season that talks about more murders occurring in the capital city of India, Delhi.
Specifically focusing on the case of Copycats of The Infamous Kachcha Baniyaan Gang that took place in 2013, this series covers that in the span of 5 Episodes with a runtime of over 30 minutes and the finale going close to 60 minutes. Here’s our review for this Season.
This Season has again covered another brutal and inhumane crime being committed at the heart and capital city of Delhi, India. Striking numbers that were highlighted in the first Episode that the crime rate of Delhi has increased by 20% and more crimes are being committed. The series has covered the copycat murders similar to the Infamous Kachcha Baniyaan Gang that was notorious for the murders in the 90s.
For people who are not aware of that gang, Kachcha Baniyaan Gang (Kachcha Baniyaan meaning Undergarments Gang because they only wear that while making a robbery), they are an organized crime syndicate that did calculate home invasions to mostly colonies around railways stations or residential units in secluded areas. Their weapon of choice were iron rods, hammers, and axes. They used to coat their bodies with oil to minimize resistance and they used to leave the crime scene completely disgusting as they used to bludgeon the place.
The Series saw the reprisal of a gang of 4 people who are copying the MO of the Kachcha Baniyaan Gang. The 5 Episodes have covered the investigation of how everything concludes and it works as well. You feel the thrill not just because of the compelling investigation, but the antagonist cast that the writers have chosen.
The main negative role leads have done their jobs brilliantly from Tillotama Shame and Jatin Goswami. The cast is very much apt and you don’t see a time where they slip, the actors are commendable in their roles.
The whole series is on point and it doesn’t stray around. There’s not just only investigation covered in the whole 5 Episodes, there are conflicts of ideology, how a woman tries to handle her job and her domestic life, and how someone, when cornered, tries to do the right thing. We’re met by some turns in their lives that they are dealing with, personally and that makes the show more humane and that works.
The real hard hitters of the show are met at the start and towards the end of the show when we’re inside the mind of Karishma or Lata when she tells us that she only dreamt of a better life and other people (The Privileged People) told her she cannot and that hits different when you think about it. Vartika says that at the start of the series and it’s not until the end of the series, that you realize what she meant.
The series has put forward another series of gruesome murders into this whole genre that seems to thrive on this type of content because the audience loves it. It is a good binge-worthy series with some amazing performances that deserve attention.
