What is good and bad aspects of Candy Series?
Candy is very engaging mystery thriller series from start to finish with lots of twists in storyline. This show is layered where we see corruption, drug abuse and sexual assault. The dialogue of the series needed to be rooted in reality. The characters were either giving long speeches full of metaphors or they were using profanities in places that didn’t require them. It made the show look like it was trying too hard to achieve the desired tone. The same could be said about the amount of gore in the show.
In terms of performances, Ronit Roy does a lot of heavy lifting in the show. He is carrying the existential dread that we have come to associate with him over the years. A father grieving his daughter’s suicide, Roy’s Jayant Parekh is a faculty member at the school in Rudrakund, who sees himself as a parental figure for some of the school kids. So it is understandable when he goes a little overboard after discovering that his ward was found murdered in the forest. There is absolutely no doubt about how good Roy is as an actor.
Richa Chadha borrows a little bit from her previous work but brings out the different shades that her character requires. Riddhi Kumar is a revelation and seems to have a bright future. Nakul Roshan Sahdev, who plays the spoilt Vayu Ranaut, is quite impressive in his stint.
