Breathe: Its good to see big actors be a part of web series. Its Maddy who has hit the small screen this time. His first digital debut “Breathe” has released today. The first 4 episodes have released, rest of the episodes are to be released each following Friday. There was a lot of promotion done for the show. The trailer added more hype to the show with a famous question – how far will you go to protect the one you love.? Was it worth the hype?
The story revolves around a football coach Danny Mascarehnas who is a loving single dad. He has a 6 year old son named Josh who is suffering from a lung disease. The doctors explain to Danny that time is running out for Josh, to be more precise he has only 5-6 months to live. On top of all this Josh is number four on the list to get an organ transplant, with no chances of being bumped up. The pain of looking at Josh with pipes and tubes forces Danny to take some drastic steps. Danny decides to go to any extreme to save his son even if it means he has to murder four innocent body donors so that Josh can be saved.
On the other side we meet Kabir Sawant an cop who works in the crime department who has a serious alchol problem and is about to get devoriced. The brilliant cop also has a flash back as to why he became like this. However with mysterious murders happening around the city Kabir starts getting curious. He slowly starts linking some piece of information which seems to connect to mysterious murders that happen in the city. Will Danny and Kabir meet? You’ll have to watch the show for that!
A fresh side of Maddy was seen in this show, Im sure we all remember seeing him as the Alaipayuthey or Tanu weds Manu types but here he plays a fresh role. He is certainly in top form for this show.Madhavan keeps you hooked as the change from a loving dad to a murder is really serious. Amit playing the guy who drowns his sorrows in alcohol and keeps himself depressed has really excelled . Amit’s scenes with his subordinate Prakash Kamble (played by Hrishikesh Joshi) deserves a mention. The other supporting characters have also done a good job.
This is a great start for more web series to come however ,the show really doesn’t get your attention from the start of the first episode but towards the end it surely does interest you. From the second episode the minutes fly by quickly which is a good sign. A good solid start to the show which later ends like a face off between Danny and Kabir certainly seems interesting. For the time being we will hope the future episodes have the same grip.
Verdict:- BREATHE HAS A SOLID GOOD START WITH JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING TO MAKE IT A POTENTIAL DRAMA! HOPEFULLY THE FOLLOWING EPISODES HAVE THE SAME GRIP.
If you have seen the remaining episodes, please let me know how the show is. Feel free to comment!
