  • Dehli Crime Season 2 is now streaming on Netflix.
  • The second season is equally interesting and full of suspense as the first season.

Delhi Crime Season 2 is back and so is Shefali Shah as the dynamic DCP Vartika Chaturvedi along with her team of dashing officers. The first season of Delhi Crime was inspired by the Nirbhaya case. Now the second season of Delhi Crime which has 5 episodes each of 50 minutes has the story centered on masked men known as Chaddi Banyan Gang.

The first season was directed by Richie Mehta. In the second season, he is joined by Tanju Chopra while the plot has been written by Mayank Tewari and Shubhra Swarup who were also a part of the writing team in the first season. The story focuses on a tribal community who once were bracketed as criminals in 1871 during the reign of the British. Even though it has been more than 150 years since the act was imposed on these tribal people, the discrimination against them continues to date.

From the elite of New Delhi being totally unaware of the plight of such people to the tribal people becoming criminals as they do not have any resources, the story interestingly exposes the overlooked practices that have been affecting the minorities of the city.

As the murders start happening, the investigation comes into play and it is the way Chaturvedi’s team handles the probe that adds more drama and interest to the story of Delhi Crime Season 2. Apart from the relentless pursuit of the criminals, the way Vartika and her teammates try to give a little bit of themselves to the family and those around them despite being drained out of energy shows the conflict such police officers face who are repeatedly on daily basis forced to keep a lid on their emotions so that they can be fair when it comes to treating a culprit or a criminal.

While the first season was excellent, one needs to understand that it was made after a research of 6 long years whereas Delhi Crime Season 2 was planned after the first season became hugely successful and even won the International Emmy Award.

Delhi Crime Season 2 is now streaming on Netflix and can make for an excellent watch this weekend.
