Aditi Pohankar steals the show She is Season 2, applauding Namrata Thakker.

Imtiaz Ali is back in the second season of the crime drama She is and while it starts with a lot of promises and action, it gets lost halfway through unnecessary and repetitive storylines.

Season 2 begins with Nayak’s (Kishore Kumar Ji) backstory and how he became a ruthless drug lord.

The story picks up where the first season left off.

Bhumi (Aaditi Pohankar) makes a deal with Nayak to survive and soon starts leading a double life.

On the one hand, Bhumi continues to work as an undercover agent, and on the other hand, she is drawn to the dark world of Nayak, and she wants to be as powerful as him.

In the first few episodes, it’s hard to see where Bhumi’s loyalty lies.

And this is the most interesting part of the storyline.

As the show progresses, it becomes clear that Bhumi is no longer a timid cop.

She transforms into a confident tough woman as she explores her sexuality without any inhibitions or regrets.

She runs a drug ring in Mumbai for Nayak, manages to trick her superiors in the police department, and even confronts her ex-husband for calling her a man and failing to please him during their marriage.

However, Bhumi begins to question her decisions when her sister becomes the victim of a drug overdose.

She returns to her ACP boss Jason Fernandez (Vishwas Keaney) and decides to help him capture Nyack.

Jason Fernandez doesn’t trust Bhumi, and rightly so, but no one else has seen Nyack or been that close to him.

Aaditi Pohankar as Bhumi always steals the show.

Her subtle execution is what keeps you glued to the screens.

You feel all her emotions and in no case condemn her actions, good or bad.

However, her chemistry with Kishore Kumar Ji is not particularly sizzling and some of their kissing scenes are awful to watch.

Having said that, both Aaditi and Kishore have the most screen time in Season 2 and do well when it comes to acting.

Of course, Aaditi is a USP and she owns the show, getting into her character’s skin and portraying every layer with the utmost sincerity.

Vishwas Keaney as ACP Fernandez is pretty decent. He has nothing to offer as his character is pretty much sidelined.

The supporting roster provides good support, but no one really stands out.

The second season is more dynamic and exciting than the first.

It’s definitely up a notch, especially how Aaditi’s character transforms.

What’s disappointing is that the show gets stuck in a loop after the first two episodes.

The police keep trying to catch Nyack, but the latter is always one step ahead.

This goes on for a while and at some point seems stretched out, as there is neither novelty nor zest.

Also, it’s hard to digest how easily Bhumi keeps going back to her superiors when it suits her and when she wants to expose Nayak.
