Season One of Candy.
‘Rudrakund’, a fictional town in the north, is the setting for Candy, a suspenseful whodunit. There are many twists and turns that keep you interested, but the ending doesn’t live up to the suspense.
In the beautiful, remote highlands, who can resist a good old-fashioned murder mystery? In thrillers, setting is crucial, and Candy nails it. Disappearances of schoolchildren and a drug trafficking have rocked a peaceful alpine region that is plagued by bullying, murder, and sexual abuse.
The cops, lead by the strong Ratna Sankhawar (Richa Chadha), have their own purpose, which some feel is supernatural. Mani Ranaut (Manu Rishi Chadha), a corrupt politician with a reputation for twisting the strings, is also present. Educator Jayant Parekh (Ronit Roy) finds himself drawn into the investigation into the disappearance of a student. We still don’t know who committed the murder. an individual or something demonic?
Candy has a good cast and some surprising surprises. For his performance as Vayu Ranaut, Nakul Roshan Sahdev deserves a special shout-out. Debojit Das Purkayastha and Agrim Joshi, the film’s co-creators, have done an excellent job with the thriller.
Everyone is deceptive, so almost everyone is a suspect. There is a sense of scepticism about the human condition in the series. The usage of drugs by young people of Rudrakund and the consequences of drug abuse are discussed without being preachy or prudish. It is also great that a youngster with Down syndrome was included, as this is a rare occurrence in Indian entertainment. Until it doesn’t, the plot works on a deeper level.
The investigation into the crime is intriguing and disturbing, but the show’s odd ending drags it down. The moral uncertainty of some characters, as well as their rapid shifts in heart and conscience, don’t work. Masaand-related parts keep moving around and around, diluting the parts that stand out. The reason for the crime seems implausible.
Candy presents the themes presented here from an Indian perspective, which is a welcome change from other foreign programmes. It’s not a formula. Despite its limitations, this is a gripping and engrossing series.
