Candy is like twists and turns – at a rate of one per episode, or sometimes even in episodes. The Voot web series staged a coup over the last few minutes without wanting a busy show or eye development. You’ll have to wait until the end to learn the surprising truth about a critical character.
Just one of the show’s residents with a private plate.
Directed by Ashish R Shukla (Prague film, Undekhi web series). And based on a story by Agrim Joshi and Debojit Das Purkayastha. Rudrakund is under the thumb of corrupt politician Pari Ranaut (Manu Rishi Chadha). It also runs on the more conventional sounding Bhaiyyaji.
Ranaut has the police in one pocket, and everything civil society looks like in the other. Even the deputy police chief Ratna (Richa Chadha) misses his orders.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. The son of Ranaut Vayu (Nakul Roshan Sahdev) is Pablo Escobar of Rudrakund. Which leaves the Ranauts factory. Worried and addicted, Vayu hates his father and seeks solace in Ratna’s company.
The cosy setting is rocked by the gruesome death of a student accused. Of being a masked serial killer living in a forest named Masaan. The Giant Master (Ronit Roy) is deeply affected by the teenager’s death. Still far from overcoming his daughter’s suicide. Giant begins an investigation when fellow student Kalki (Ridhi Kumar) says Masaan attacked him.
Is Masaan a pipe dream, the result of Candy’s effect on the brain?
Or is it Ranaut’s creation who will do anything to keep his possessions? The show’s creators spread a network of suspicion far and wide.
Almost every protagonist who has a speaking role has a hidden story. The show’s confidence is directly proportional to the audience’s ability to end suspicion and move on.
Drilling material is presented without any trace of disparaging. Filled with different types of evil depicted in their evil glory, Candy strives for sensationalism. Harassment, drug use, sexual harassment, murder – Candy is always an often unpleasant rage.
The sales parade winds down as several characters pool their resources. To take on the twin drug-trafficking demons and serial killers in general. At least in the middle, where Ratna and Giant join, Candy strengthens and achieves a goal.
The final few twists of the eight episodes are best reflected in Giant’s often mesmerized expression. Ronit Roy and Richa Chadha get dedicated performances. But do better in the rare dark scenes where they get a moment to themselves.
Manu Rishi Chadha speaks obscene words and lies to criminals:
While Nakul Roshan Sahdev is just as effective as the prodigal son of the actual monster Rudrakund. As we dig deeper, Ratna reveals herself. To be a corrupt cop in a love affair with drug dealer Vayu Ranaut. While Giant is a grieving father trying to solve Mehul’s murder as a ransom for the loss of his daughter.
Is there also a supernatural theme in the show about Masaan. The red-eyed demon, or the village legend who stalks the villagers? It’s hard to say.
Surrounded by this supernatural story is a gritty tale of drugs, abuse, broken family relationships, and sexual assault. Each episode reveals a different chapter, and every time you think you’ve solved a puzzle. A loose strand of hair will appear.
The series is set in a beautiful hilly area to the north with stunning valleys. A place that would never suspect of being a murder shelter or drug hub. It perfectly symbolizes darkness in beautiful things – another theme foretold by the creators.
The visual images have a psychedelic aftertaste in the stories. Written by Debojit Das Purkayastha and Agrim Joshi, which generally revolve around “candy” dr*gs. It shows how cinema brings the core of the story to life, which is impressive.
