OTT platforms have proved to be a boon for all the entertainment seekers in times of Coronavirus. With so much content to explore, we are spoilt for choices. And hey, here's another chapter adding to the list of 'Good Content On OTT'. The season one of Flesh is out on Eros Now and let's just say, it's one hell of a treat to watch. Starring Swara Bhakser, Akshay Oberoi, Mahima Makwana, Sayandeep Sengupta, Geeta Agarwal, and many more, Flesh directed by Danish Aslam is as gritty, dark, never-wrenching and entertaining as it can get. It brings forth the brutal and ugly side of the country, that one often tends to overlook.
Flesh touches upon the tale of human trafficking in India. It's about a daughter of an NRI couple named Zoya who goes missing. ACP Radha of Anti-Human Trafficking unit played by Swara Bhasker takes upon herself to find the girl. And then it's the story about the unnerving truths of the Human Trafficking business getting unfolded one after the other. There are several parallel stories that work along and for that, you'll have to watch it to know it.
While we thought Rani Muekrji's Mardani was so far the best crime thriller with a lady cop unmasking the ugly side of Human Trafficking, Flesh has proved us wrong. Swara Bhasker as ACP Radha is by far one of the most powerful portrayals we have seen on screen. Her stellar performance with on-point dialogue delivery calls for applause. She seems to have soaked herself in the character of Radha, and it translates so finely on the screen.
When there is good, there's also space for evil. Akshay Oberoi as Taj, the man behind all the evil, is so captivating that there'll be times when you'll be shivering with fear. He is nothing less than a psychotic man with an insanely inhuman side to him. Kudos to Akshay Oberoi for getting it all right. The supporting cast, especially, the girls have done an amazing job too with whatever limited time frame that they have. But the HERO of the web series is the flawless writing by Pooja Ladha Surti. It will compel you to watch it in one go.
In the end, we'll just say that Flesh on Eros Now is worth your time. It gets four stars out of five on our review meter.
