Amazon Originals has affluently carved its pinnacle position in the online entertainment industry in India and it’s highly commendable how they’ve progressed by introducing a soul concept of original web series. It’s a great enhancement for Indian retro media and entertainment industry as well as it brings a wide variety of entertainment options in different genres to the people with a quick, simple and easy access.

This is a great initiative and Amazon prime has set a benchmark for the Indian media now.
‘Breathe’ – A gripping concept
The whole concept of the show is completely thrilling and gripping from the very first episode of the series. As per the reviews, there isn’t any extra glorification of scenes and story to dramatize the plot even further. Initially in the first episode which is free on Amazon Prime app lays a major foundation of the plot ahead and is designed super creatively to stage the prologue and define the two protagonists. The screenplay is tricky but not as hard to perceive as the codes in Sherlock Holmes and thus making it very reasonable for the public on a whole. Moreover, there’s a continues rat-cat chase going on in the season making it an even darker mystery of whose the accused. Even though Danny’s aka Madhavan’s character is shaded with a little gloom and bleakness but that doesn’t really elucidate the accused. This show leaves it upon their viewers to decide whether it’s right to love the evil who becomes the hero just for his loved ones and how many limitations and barriers he could break just to ave the life of the one he cares. This plot is about ordinary people facing extraordinary situations and creating their own boundaries.
From a well-designed concept to a smartly written screenplay and a tight plot which is well produced and beautifully directed. This show can easily compete with the Hollywood TV series. The acting is commendable and the artists will surely create that stigma and generate those vibes that give goosebumps just with the way they have held the expressions and done the dialogue delivery.
There were certain contradictions and a ‘haunting concepts’ for the organ donors but one thing is to be acknowledged and that is, it is a fiction and is being provided by a disclaimer stating the trigger warnings in the very beginning and hence it should be treated as one. Plus on a brighter side, this show promotes organ donation since it tells you the value of your organs that could save many lives and reincarnate people.
Its seen since ages that people and specifically your parents and cross any limits just to protect their ward and so it’s their duty to always be there for their kids but choosing a path to protect that kid is a task. If I was in that situation it would have been so pressuring me to save my kid with all that I have even if it means to give away my own life in the process. Need is the mother of invention and the basis of a criminal mind. Your desire becomes your need and then you need makes you do stuff which might be wrong and irrational but would feel right at that moment in those circumstances. Saving the life of your loved one at the cost of your own won’t be a problem if there exists need and a passion. Certain different paths could have been chosen but a mind filled with eagerness, frustration, depression and sorrow makes you think in the reverse order and makes every wrong the new right.
An amazing theme
I personally recommend this web series to not just the youth but to every age group worldwide because this is really a great show with an amazing theme, with an amazing storyline and the most talented actors. This is a work of fiction and there’s a kind request to all the viewers to treat it as it is and enjoy the drama, the thrill, the action and the mystery in the series.
Taking the step ahead these new generation media are providing us with the best of the content, and we as entertainment seekers should definitely not miss up on media. Elements like these. This show has eight episodes aired until yet and the first episode is totally free but the rest of the series is available on Amazon Prime and with a yearly subscription of 1k.
There’s a strength that drives you to do everything you could for the one you love since there’s nothing good and bad and its all in the thinking mind. I’ll be your garrison until the day I die and still count on you from above for one loves thee with a love that shall not die till the sun’s grown cold and the stars have gone old and as my drops of tears, I convert to sparks of fire to shield thy soul and soma until nirvana and beyond.
