Inside Edge Season Review
Richa Chadha is a powerhouse performer. Her character Zarina Malik has broken out of her shell and taken flight in this big bad world of fixed matches. Finally she is calling the shots after being on the receiving end of bad luck. She gets into bed with Bhaisaab, both literally and metaphorically.
The thorn in her perfectly crafted plan is Mantra Patil (Sapna Pabbi), Bhaisaab’s 25-year-old daughter. Mantra is a constant and cruel reminder that the game works on beauty and youth.
Inside Edge suffers from the problem of being over the top. It comes dangerously close to becoming a ham-fest but for some good performances. There are episodes where the series can no longer hold your attention.
It also has to battle the problem of not being the sole player on the digital platform anymore. Since Inside Edge 1, a lot has happened on Indian OTT.
