Alarmed at hearing from Siddhi after the tiff the latter calls the other two members of their divided group, Damini Rizvi Roy (Sayani Gupta) and Anjana Menon (Kirti Kulhari).
They find it crazy to run to Istanbul mainly because they don’t know where Siddhi is and also they haven’t spoken to one another to resolve their differences. But they keep the greater good in mind and decide to call a temporary truce. They fly to Istanbul to bail out the baby of their gang.
Umang’s worry is that Siddhi is on the edge and keeps repeating the statement to enforce the seriousness of the situation. But she is hale and hearty and in bed with a Turkish stud. She is glowing from coitus and coming from a girl who had trouble losing her virginity, it is a big deal. But the price of her hot night turns out to be expensive, he costs 350 euros for a night. The first few minutes are filled with these moments.
The ten new episodes of the Amazon Prime show are bolder, brighter, breezier and brassier than the ten that introduced us to the volatile world of the four severely conflicted but absolutely unapologetic So-Bo girls early last year.
In Istanbul, the girls talks their hearts out to one another and reveal whatever they missed out in one another lives.
Once back in Mumbai, they try their best to make up for lost time. They have to sort out the past, deal with their present and try to make sense of the future. But this time around they put their heads together to make it bearable.
They return to their favorite spot, the Trunk Bar in Colaba shocking the owner Jeh Wadia (Prateik Babbar). Anjana has reduced her alcohol intake taking into consideration her previous encounter. They bond, laugh and shed their misunderstandings.
Damini, the investigative journalist was forced to leave the website that she created. She is now on a quest to complete her book on about a judge who died in mysterious circumstances a day before he is to pronounce a verdict in a case involving a political bigwig. The concept itself is controversial which spurs trouble.Her personal life too has its share of ups and downs as she struggles to choose between Aamir Warsi (Milind Soman) and Jeh.
Anjana, a successful corporate lawyer, faces misogyny at work. She enters into a no-strings-attached affair with a married man (Samir Kochchar) and the struggle to move on from her divorce and play the part of a responsible single mother.
Umang asserts her sexual identity and is comfortable in her skin as a bisexual. She had broken up with fading film star Samara Kapoor (Lisa Ray). The two were inseparable even as the divide between them created occasional discord between the two. But Umang struggled to deal with the break up and finds it even harder when a video goes viral showing Samara having a mental breakdown on camera.
Siddi stumbles upon a new profession at Jeh’s bar as she struggles to reconnect with her father who refuses to talk to her and make her newfound confidante, her mother, proud of her. She gets into stand-up comedy along with North Bombay boy Amit Mishra (Prabal Panjabi). This gives her a sense of purpose.
Life is never a bed of roses and this is clear to the girls. They seem to be bringing on their A-game at times but life can never be a smooth ride. Plans always don’t play out as they were meant to be.
