Aarya Season 3 Part 2 Review: What’s It About:

Part 1 of this season ended on an emotional high where Aarya’s daughter Aru tries to find parallels between Bali & Balidaan, Majboor & Mahaan, Devta & Daanav, and realizes her mother is the crux of all these dilemmas. The final part of this season starts at the same point and makes sure to close all the chapters in the upcoming four episodes that offer the least of the crime and violence in this violent crime drama.

Aarya is a mother who is trying to run a drug cartel business and protect her children from getting involved, affected, and impacted by the same. The first season saw her getting dragged into the business after her husband, who was the owner of this business, died.

The second season sees Aarya getting stuck in the business, which is deeply rooted in her family, with her father being the original troublemaker. The two seasons saw a lot of bloodshed and violence, and in the third season, Aarya moved to an emotional palette rather than guns and chases. But do the emotional dilemmas win audiences? We will tell you in time.

Aarya Season 3 Part 2 Review: Script Analysis:

Undoubtedly, Aarya Season 3. started on such a strong note that it promised the strongest season of this series. The first four episodes ran at a brilliant pace, with the kids turning against their mother, questioning her intent to save the family, doubting her unwillingness to run a business, and alleging that she prioritizes business over them.

Part 2 overrides the emotional high but starts falling in pieces one episode at a time. The final four episode titles say Sherni Ke Shikar Ka Waqt Aa Gaya, Khabri Ki Saza Maut, Aarya Sareen is an Unfit mother, and the final war titled Panje Baahar Nikaalne Ka Waqt Aa Gaya Hai. All the episodes have been poorly titled and generate no intrigue.

In fact, it seems like they have been titled in a hurry to solve a mesh and come out of it in just four episodes of 30 – 32 minutes each. These four episodes have so much on the platter already that the writers could not afford to introduce anything new. But the sad part is whatever was on the platter has gone pale and needed a quick decision to put the story on the burner, but rather, it is put on a backburner!

In order to resolve every subplot, the writing team of Aarya struggles and suddenly does not know where to lead. The biggest mistake seems to be the new plot introduced via Ila Arun playing another drug dealer and her son, a premise that looked promising in Part 1 but was scattered all over the place in Part 2.

Written by Khushboo Raj & Amit Raj, the final four episodes see Aarya struggling emotionally with her family and her only friend while dealing with another drug deal going missing. However, while this emotional premise needed very strong writing and cues, even the writers struggled with the story as they seemed lost in concluding every chapter they had opened before. Bali Ya Balidaan, the episode that became the epicenter of this story, gulps down everything else.

Aarya Season 3 Part 2 Review: Star Performance:

Sushmita Sen plays Aarya in the series, but we will come to her later. The last four episodes are brilliantly held by the three kids: Veer, played by Viren Vazirani; Aaru, played by Aarushi Bajaj; and Pratyaksh Panwar, playing Adi. While the kids finally turn against their mother, they make sure to get the tones of rebellion wrapped in distrust, heartbreaks, lack of attention, and feeling lost, delivered with conviction, and it works like a charm.

All the other performances in this part seemed lost, be it Sikandar Kher’s comeback as Daulat or Ila Arun‘s nothing to offer to the story as Nalini Sahiba. Vikas Kumar as ACP Khan starts looking ludicrous when his character starts trying to take an emotional turn with concern for his colleagues, but the shade doesn’t suit him, and the writers should be blamed for such a change of elements without reason.

Shashwat Seth shines in little acts of the violent psychopath, and probably, he deserved a better arc, but obviously, not every good thing lasts long, and neither did his act.

The good part of part 1, Geetanjali Kulkarni, who promised to deliver, was compromised early, and the rest of the acts were completely missable.

Sushmita Sen promised a high in part 1 but definitely failed to deliver in part 2 of this season. While the audience waited for her dilemmas to tear her apart, her loudest roar as a wounded tigress turned out to be the weakest. In fact, she has a whole episode to shine in Aarya Sareen is an unfit mother, but neither her face offers a new line of emotion, nor does her voice tone with all the monologues and solo acts of confrontation, self-doubt, and self-realization, falling flat.

Aarya Season 3 Part 2 Review: Direction & Music:

Directed by Kapil Sharma, Shraddha Pasi Jairath, and Ram Madhvani, Aarya Season 3 was like a balloon that accidentally bursts, leaving nothing. So, while the first four episodes created perfect intrigue and high, the last four episodes, in a rush to wrap it all, seem lost and destroy the narratives set up beautifully.

The emotional turmoil of the Sareens was what was expected in the last four episodes, but nothing concrete came out. Much gets destroyed by the overuse of Puneet Sharma’s poetry. In fact, the Majboor VS Mahaan and Bali VS Balidaan was a masterstroke monologue achieving the high it intended to.

But if words could be abused, it was right here in Aarya Part 2 with the poetic arc playing with the dilemmas in Majboor VS Mahaan and Bali VS Balidaan, so much so that it killed the charm it created. Vishal Khurrana’s background music did not help since the narrative started falling apart.

Aarya Season 3 Part 2 Review: Last Words:

Aarya’s major mistake might have been not releasing the entire eight episodes at once. While the first four episodes of this season were freshly baked out of the oven, the final four episodes turned bland, and no one likes cold broth. All the plots seem to be compromised in a hurry to just end this all. And if this series has ended at all, then thank god! This one turned out to be a total disappointment! Sushmita Sen definitely roared the meekest as this wounded tigress.
