Actor Swara Bhasker’s ACP Radha Nautiyal makes a Bollywoodesque entrance in the crime thriller Flesh. She drops her undercover act as a woman who’s about to be pimped off and informs her captors that is they, who are under arrest. The role is in keeping with Bhasker’s personality; she’s famously outspoken about social injustice.
Directed by Danish Aslam, the series focuses on the issue of child and human trafficking. A frantic pair of parents (Yudhishtir Urs and Vidya Malavade) beseech Nautiyal to find their missing daughter Zoya. From thereon, it becomes a cat and mouse game between her and Zoya’s captors who are led by Taj (Akshay Oberoi). Things get bloody and murky. There’s a lot of on-screen torture, violence, bloodbath, skin show and campy dialogues filled with expletives.
