280 0

In the midst of a foggy field, the lifeless body of a young British man with Punjabi roots is discovered, sending ripples of intrigue through the air. Netflix’s Punjabi-language series, Kohrra, embarks on a captivating journey of six episodes, delving into the enigma of love and the complexities of human emotions. Each installment leads us closer to the truth while simultaneously pushing it further away. The show’s narrative weaves together a gripping police procedural and a deeply human drama, where unearthing new clues intertwines with the expression of suppressed feelings. As the characters navigate a labyrinth of emotions, they become entangled in forces beyond their control.

Gunjit Chopra and Diggi Sisodia craft the compelling six-episode series, with Sudip Sharma (known for Pataal Lok) serving as the co-creator. Guided by the skillful direction of Randeep Jha (renowned for Halahal and Trial by Fire), the show boasts a talented cast, who navigate a web of deception both within themselves and in the world around them.

At the center of the mystery is Paul (Vishal Handa), who arrives in Punjab with his childhood friend Liam (Ivanty Novak) to marry Veera (Anand Priya) in an arranged match. However, this decision leaves one soul deeply dissatisfied – Veera’s boyfriend, Saakar (Saurav Khurana). Sub-inspector Balbir (Suvinder Vicky) and his colleague Garundi (Barun Sobti) have their work cut out, as Liam vanishes after Paul’s death, and several other suspects emerge. Paul’s father, Steve (Manish Chaudhari), is embroiled in a property dispute with his brother Maninder (Varun Badola), while Maninder’s son Happy (Amaninder Pal Singh) harbors resentment towards Paul.

The investigation leads the officers through a trail of breadcrumbs while dealing with their own personal struggles. Balbir grapples with a strained relationship with his daughter Nimrat (Harleen Sethi), while Garundi faces a peculiar domestic situation. Amidst the turmoil, Balbir finds solace in the company of Indira (Ekavali Khanna), the exceptional guest of Jay-Ho.

Ekavali Khanna’s portrayal of the widow, Indira, is a revelation that adds a profound layer of depth to Kohrra. With outstanding empathy, she embodies the character’s emotional complexities, breathing life into Indira’s desire for companionship and understanding. Her nuanced performance masterfully showcases the inner turmoil of a woman finding herself drawn to the lonely cop Balbir amidst the fog of uncertainty. Ekavali’s presence on the screen leaves an indelible mark, underscoring the significance of emotional connections beyond a certain age. Her performance is an unforgettable highlight of the series.

The heart of the show lies in the journeys of its complex male characters entangled in the intricate case. Balbir, the seasoned policeman, becomes a compelling figure we can’t help but connect with. Nimrat’s animosity towards Balbir runs parallel to revelations from the victim’s household, adding layers of depth to the narrative. Suvinder Vicky’s stellar performance, previously seen in Milestone and CAT, is matched by Harleen Sethi’s poignant portrayal.

Barun Sobti, as the enigmatic Garundi, delivers powerful moments that anchor another foggy puzzle. Rachel Shelley, known for Lagaan, brings a touching presence as Liam’s mother, Clara, while Saurav Khurana shines in his vengeful role as Saakar. Kohrra transcends the boundaries of language and culture, delivering a gripping and emotionally resonant series that artfully explores the depths of love, deception, and human nature amidst the captivating Punjab fog. 
Jay-Ho extends its heartfelt congratulations to the exceptional star cast of Kohrra for their mesmerizing performances that brought this enigmatic series to life! Special appreciation goes to Suvinder Vicky, Barun and Jay-Ho’s guest Ekavali Khanna for her outstanding portrayal of the widow, Indira, a character that touched our hearts and added profound depth to the narrative. Bravo to each actor for their dedication and talent! And, of course, a resounding round of applause for the visionary director, Randeep Jha, for skillfully steering Kohrra through the captivating fog of emotions and mystery. Together, they have crafted a truly awesome and unforgettable viewing experience that will linger in our minds.
