Should You Watch Season Two Of Netflix’s ‘She’?

Imtiaz Ali’s ‘She’ follows senior police constable Bhumika ‘Bhumi’ Pardeshi (Aaditi Pohankar) whose life changes when she’s chosen to go undercover to bust a drug ring led by the kingpin, Nayak (Kishore Kumar G). The series picks up from where season one ends. A more confident and sexually aware Bhumi offers to join Nayak.

Spoilers ahead!

Bhumi finally becomes the heroine of her life

After being fed snippets about the hardened, sociopathic Nayak throughout season one, we learn about his traumatic childhood and how it has shaped him. Nayak has a five-year plan to turn Mumbai into the drug capital of India and Bhumi is to play an important role in it. Together, the two hatch a plan to fool the police force. Bhumi plays the role of a double agent with gusto. She returns to the streets to resume her sex worker gig, and discovers that she enjoys the power she wields over men with her body. She has a few unfortunate run-ins with other sex workers and their pimp and gets beaten up. However, Nayak, who has been monitoring her every move, comes to her rescue. Money exchanges hands, there is a shift of power and Bhumi and Nayak put together a team of sex workers to mobilise drugs across the city. On the personal front, Bhumi discovers that her ex-husband Lokhande (Sandeep Dhabale), who was the source of her sexual insecurities, is impotent. This knowledge seems to give her some closure as she calls him out on his abuse of her.

Bhumi is like a shark that has tasted blood and now wants more. However, she finds herself caught in a moral dilemma – to stay true to her mission and capture Nayak or become his lover and right hand? Bhumi also realises that leading a double life sometimes equals double the drama, especially when she senses that both ACP Jason Fernandez (Vishwas Kini), her reporting officer, and Nayak doubt her loyalties. However, it becomes increasing clear where Bhumi’s loyalties lie – with herself. Towards the end, she finally takes control of her life and does what’s in her best interest.

It’s an Aaditi Pohankar show

While season one was all about Bhumi discovering her sexuality, this season focuses on her empowerment. However, it seems the makers are unable to distinguish between the two. Despite most action being relegated to the bedroom, cringe-worthy writing and convoluted plotlines, Aaditi Pohankar shines as the titular character, and is the only reason to tune in.

The Kapoor Klan Gets Kozy On The Latest Episode Of ‘Koffee With Karan’ 7

What is there to say about Karan Johar‘s trademark opening routine that we haven’t said before? As usual, Johar long-jumps from one topic to another to introduce his guests of the week. Thankfully, this week his speech was more quip than essay. Probably because Sonam Kapoor Ahuja was sick and tired of standing in the wings with her cousin, Arjun Kapoor. Over the years, the Kapoors have made dropping in on ‘Koffee With Karan’ a ritual. Kareena Kapoor Khan played it safe on the kouch just last week. But Sonam has always been a loose canon and we hoped and prayed, that she had some revelations up her sleeve.
