‘Bloody Brothers’ review: Jaideep Ahlawat and Zeeshan Ayyub shines in this suspense thriller


Two brothers who haven’t met  for a  long time, meet at a wedding attended by the who’s-hoot, get drunk.

While  driving back one of them knocks down an old man. The  feeling of remorse  and redress  that follows  carries the characters and  the  story forward.


While the  original  BBC series  relied on wry humour, director Shaad Ali and his  writers(Siddharth  Hirwe,  Riya Poojary, Anuj Rajoria and  Navnit Singh Raju)  gather the  goofy impulse  into the circle of suspense so that  nothing appears as serious or unsolvable as  it seems.


Jaideep Ahlawat and Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub are two of the  most  celebrated  products of the streaming revolution.

Playing the Grover brothers,  neither  is  able to  induce  any  extra   vigour  to the proceedings.

 

They are both  adequate –that’s the least we  expect  from them—but  nothing more than that.

 

 

The  supporting cast  is in it for fun. Tina Desai is mischievously wide-eyed and  seductive.She is not what she seems.

 

Neither is  the  series. Shruti Seth, stuck in a  placid marriage  has a fling  with Mugdha Godse. Also, Maya Alagh and Asrani looked screen perfect for their amazing roles in the shows.

 

The six episode series has a heavy weight cast and some edge-of-the-seat plot twists and turns.

 

Bloody Brothers is a complicated crime thriller that ponders upon subjects like brotherhood, love, lust, greed, and more with a broader plot being that of accidental murder.
