It’s all laid out – a father killing AB-negative organ donors to give a new lease of life to his son and a disheartened police officer after him.
It’s not as simple as it seems. Breathe is not like any other web series or show you have explored in India before. How does a father react when his only son tells him that he does not want to die? The love a parent has for his child is unfathomable. For a parent, the child is a part of them and if anything happens to that part they will go to great lengths to protect it. R Madhavan’s portrayal of Daniel Mascarenhas(Danny) is brilliant.
Danny’s relentless effort to save his son and how a rational, logical man becomes a psychopath serial killer is why you should check out this amazon prime original.
The other stars are not far behind, Amit Sadh’s portrayal of Kabir Sawant as a heartbroken police officer doing his duty in the Indian police system is at par with R Madhavan’s performance. A helpless 11-year old clutching to the last few strings of his life leaves you feeling gloomy and the show carries a great impact upon you.
