Rudra: The Edge of Darkness (TV Series) - Intro
Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is an Indian psychological crime thriller streaming television series, created for Disney+ Hotstar. It’s a remake of British series Luther. The series stars Ajay Devgn, Raashi Khanna and Esha Deol.
DCP Rudraveer Pratap Singh “Rudra” (Ajay Devgn) is pursuing a suspect who ends up in a comatose state in the hospital. After an inquiry into what happened, he is reinstated in the force months later, but the time apart has taken its toll on him.
STORY: Set in the Special Crimes Unit of the Mumbai Police, the show is a procedural psychological crime thriller revolving around DCP Rudraveer Singh, who is under the system’s radar despite being one of its best minds at work.
REVIEW: There’s no formula to deduce what it takes to create an engaging adaptation of a popular show from another country. The makers of Rudra: The Edge of Darkness, an official adaptation of BBC’s Luther have followed one rule: keep it simple and straight.
The original was written and created by Neil Cross and headlined by Idris Alba. Ishaan Trivedi, Abbas and Hussain Dalal are in charge of the writing department here. From the three episodes made available for preview, it’s evident that the creators have borrowed the basic plotlines from the original episodes, and Indianised the proceedings – simple and easy to follow.
Without wasting any time, director Rajesh Mapuskar and team dive deep into the story, right from the first frame. DCP Rudraveer Singh (Ajay Devgn) is reinstated in service after sitting on the bench for seven months. His suspension is temporarily revoked.
An officer of the Special Crimes Unit, lead by Deepali Handa (Ashwini Kalsekar), Rudra, as he is addressed in most parts of the show, is known to be one of the most competent hands in the department.
Even as every episode has a story of its own, revolving around an extremely intelligent and psychologically-charged criminal, it also, gradually, unravels layers of Rudra’s life which forms a key part of the overarching story for the current season.
Without digressing from on-going investigations, each of the first three episodes weaves in a thread from Rudra’s inner circle – his troubled marriage with Shaila (Esha Deol Takhtani), his equations with his seniors, juniors and peers, his passion for the job which comes at the cost of personal losses, and the methods he uses to delve deep into the minds of intelligent and dangerous criminals, often putting himself at risk.
