After the success of a masterful season one, which earned an Emmy for Best Drama Series in 2020, Netflix’s ‘Delhi Crime’ returns for season two on August 26. With Shefali Shah (read our review of ‘Darlings’, which Shah shines in) in the lead as DCP Vartika Chaturvedi, the crime drama also stars Rajesh Tailang, Rasika Dugal, Adil Hussain, Anurag Arora, Yashaswini Dayama, Sidharth Bhardwaj and Gopal Dutt. The upcoming season revolves around the crimes of a notorious gang that finds a way to slip out of Delhi police’s grasp.
An odd gang of robbers and murderers, named the Kaccha-Baniyan gang, stalk the elite homes of Delhi. Their victims? Senior citizens. DCP Vartika Chaturvedi (Shefali Shah) is tasked by her boss (Adil Hussain) to track down the gang, before they kill more people and rob more homes. But the murderers create a sense of paranoia and fear amongst the elite. Since the gang gains access to homes by posing as labourers and house help, the elite begin to sack domestic help across the city, which forces the poorest of the poor out of their jobs. DCP Vartika realises how circumstance force people into resorting to desperate means to earn money. As pressure mounts, she and her team must put everything on the line to bring the gang to justice.
