To begin with – season 2 does not disappoint. The second season is bigger and grander, and definitely goes beyond the various highlights of season 1. Be it the acting of Kunal Kemmu, the restrained way in which he shapes the character and makes it larger than life or the ensemble cast that includes Asha Negi and Nidhi Singh, there are so many touch points to keep you hooked. #TheRoadToJustice never seemed this exciting and thrilling before.
Here’s a quick review and all the important highlights from the show
The story continues 8 years after the start of season 1. Season 2 is an 8-episode murder mystery where all the cases are true crime stories of either solved or closed cases. Of course, the crime is fictionalized where Abhay solves one case after another in perfection with his trademark ingenuity, and novel deductions. All this happens until enters an enigmatic criminal mastermind, with no name or past, and traps Abhay along with everyone else in a maze that will test the very fibre of his morality. Season 2 is more focused on the hidden side of Abhay that comes into life when the villain unravels secrets from the past and turns everyone’s world upside down.
The villain of the show is everything that you could have asked for and more. He knows how to push Abhay, and also tell his truth about the world. Between the pressure of savings the kids and protecting his past secrets, Abhay once again emerges incorruptible.
The intense background score, the compelling storyline, the seamless editing and the fine directing done is what makes season 2 worth the watch. Also, there is a Ram Kapoor surprise for all the fans. No more spoilers for you!

Case 2: Next you come across a prostitute that targets men in order to take revenge against the man who forced her into this.
Case 3: Here comes a doctor who started his murder spree in quest to make his own Frankenstein, waging a war against the creator who took away his sister.

We like to think that nothing bad will happen to us but in reality there are criminals living amongst us. They’re so close to home.They could be our milkman, building watchman or even, our uncle. And thus showcasing the harsh realities of life and opening our eyes to the dark side.
