Breathe is a television series based on an Indian crime thriller. Breathe made her Amazon Video debut on January 26, 2018. It is Amazon Prime Video’s second original Indian series in the 2017 Inside Edge sequence. R. Madhavan, Amit Sadh, Hrishikesh Joshi, Sapna Pabbi, and Neena Kulkarni star in this series. The sequel to Breathe ,Abhishek Bachchan’s The Shadows will premiere on July 10, 2020.
Breathe season 1 told the story of a father who was willing to risk his life to save his son. Even if it meant killing or committing suicide. Danny is a widower with a pulmonary disease son named Josh who has about six months to live. Danny has a widowed mother. Josh needs a lung transplant as soon as possible. The point is that he is the fourth person on the waiting list for an organ transplant, and it is extremely difficult to find a donor who matches his rare AB blood group.
Danny pursues a criminal face in order to provide a better life for his son. He begins killing the donors one by one so that Josh can be added to the transplant waiting list in time. Everything goes as planned until Ria Ganguly (Sapna Pabbi) is revealed to be the ex-wife of Kabir Sawant, Amit Sadh’s Senior Inspector. At the end of the episode, Sawant picks up Danny with a red hand while attempting to kill Ria. Sawant not only kills the criminal, but he also gives up his dying wish to save Josh.
Breathe Season I was a smash hit with both the public and the critics. It’s worth noting that it was released in January 2018, when there were only a few Indian web series available. Inside Edge, which debuted in 2017, was the first. Breathe was Amazon India’s second indigenous title. Breathe was thus the first Indian crime thriller to be released for Amazon Prime Video subscribers.
The show included not only plot twists, but also (albeit limited) humour that was placed in an unobtrusive manner. During the discussion of coincidences, a police officer reminded Sawant of Rajkummar Rao’s film Shahid and Shahid Kapoor’s film Rajkumar. Okay, maybe that didn’t make you laugh, but it’s a lot funnier in the show.
The performances accelerated the story to a beautiful and appealing pace. Particularly notable are R Madhavan and Amit Sadh.However, this does not imply that the show’s success is solely due to its impeccable timing. The content is also important. There was a lot of that in Season 1 of Breathe.
So, what makes a good crime thriller? Is that a dialogue, a setting, music, an act, or a story? In fact all of these factors are important, but the most important factor is how the criminal prosecutes his victims. In Breathe, every killing was meticulously planned. The show provided insight into the criminal’s mind by focusing on his plan prior to each assassination. Danny does everything from shattering a model’s head to holding his breath in water to see how long it takes a person to drown. However his kills are I must say were very tricky !!
He not only kill his victims, but do so in such a way that it appears to be an accident And without causing any harm to their bodies. Furthermore, a victim must be transported to the hospital immediately in order for their organs to be delivered on time. We were reminded of Walter White from the show Breaking Bad when we saw Danny, a simple familiar man with grey hair, thick glasses, and a warm smile. Numerous parallels have been drawn between the two shows, prompting Breathe to be dubbed “India’s Breaking Bad Response.”
Danny has done an excellent job as Madhavan. We first saw him at his son Josh’s birthday party, where he performed. With love in his eyes and a big smile on his face, one would never guess that this is the antagonist from the first scene. Whatever your written text requires, Madhavan as Danny is both a callous criminal and a devoted father. In one scene, we see him sobbing in the bath and reflecting on his actions. Perhaps the most moving scene in the show.
Then there was Amit Sadh, who lamented his daughter with piercing eyes as Kabir Sawant. He carried a flask with him everywhere he went, and he regretted it.
Kabir recalled both emotional and eerie scenes involving his late daughter Shreya. He portrayed the ideal cop who prefers to do things his way. And nothing can harm his family as long as he is present.
We can’t wait to see what Sadh has in store for us this time as Kabir Sawant in Breathe: In the Shadows
As the show progressed, there were a number of well-placed twists. A fantastic twist, of course, is one that we did not see coming. And Breathe provided us with that numerous times. Especially poignant is the scene in which Danny pushes his friend down the road, killing her instantly because her criminal activities are being exposed. In fact, the very first scene depicts a young woman committing suicide for the sake of her relatives, and it evokes both terror and intrigue.
However, this does not imply that the show’s success is solely due to its impeccable timing. The content is also important. There was a lot of that in Season 1 of Breathe .”When are you going to defend someone you love?” This series only poses one question. Two desperate and pursued men must play the final cat and mouse game to save the one they love.
