The web series is based on a Spanish series Penoza, which revolves around the life of a woman who takes the hot-seat of her dodgy family business. With some initial reluctances, she is seen taking charge, so, what goes next is interesting to catch in the series.
The series is fashioned like a crime thriller coming along with a strong emotional core in it. It promises with a good pace and thus is seen moving swiftly, coming along with good quality and tangible plot. Every character comes in detail backed with good storytelling. Besides one can also find several dips, contrived scenes, and loose ends, which seemed to have dealt in a poor light. The design is incredible and so is the background score at the background of Rajasthan. Since the story comes from a deep Rajasthani backdrop, we see some beautifully appointed homes, with ornate havelis, along with the polo team-owning crime lords, fancy cars with fancier shades and similar other things.
Talking about the performances, the series has an interesting and big star cast. It sees the comeback of the B Town actor Chandrachur Singh, who seems to have done a decent performance in it. While Sushmita Sen doing her debut in the digital format has nailed it with her incredible performance playing Aarya Sareen bossing her business. Others like Vikas Kumar, Ankur Bhatia, Sikander Kher, Namit Das, Manish Chaudhary, and Jayant Kriplani have given their decent performances and so were others. The other elements like the background score, photography, screenplay and other elements went smooth.
Aarya – The Last Word
More often we see the series slick, unpredictable, pacey and enjoyable. You would be eager to know what’s coming next which could be the straight away win for Aarya.
