Review: Hush Hush
Hush Hush, directed by Tanuja Chandra (she is responsible for four of the seven episodes, with Kopal Naithani and Ashish Pandey handling the other three), gets off to a good start with a murder and a strange death in a closed room, but it quickly disintegrates on the verdant lawns.
The group of four lunch companions includes Zaira (Shahana Goswami), a designer of exorbitantly priced lehengas; ex-journalist Saiba (Soha Ali Khan); resentful wife Dolly (Kritika Kamra); and, intriguingly enough, Juhi Chawla as Ishi, a public relations expert and fixer who is modeled after Niira Radia and whom everyone loves to despise.
The dragon-like mother-in-law of Dolly desires a grandchild. Zaira is abruptly dropped just as her career is about to peak. Saiba sighs, “There should be a manual for something like this,” as her husband and children are drawn into a mess. The oddest is Ishi, who has all the important people in the capital under her control yet is appalled beyond belief when she learns of the perversions of strong men.
It’s unclear how the quartet, who don’t share anything in common, came to form such strong friendships. All of their wealth and style do not endow them with common sense when they find themselves in difficulty that they have caused themselves.
Maybe people only lead such reclusive lifestyles and carelessly leave DNA and traces at crime scenes in movies and television shows. However, not even the sincere cop, Geeta (Karishma Tanna), thinks to dispatch a forensic team to gather evidence from a location where a potential murder victim was last seen. This is not New York, this is Haryana, sneers her cynical boss (Vibha Chibber). You need a warrant here, right?
Unusual hoodlums of all shapes and sizes stalk the area aimlessly; one of them practices yoga in the middle of a desolate road. The timeline of the episodes jumps back and forth. Everything points to a shelter run by Meera, Ishi’s childhood buddy (Ayesha Jhulka).
Shikha Sharma and Ashish Mehta’s television series, which features dialogue by Juhi Chaturvedi, appears to have looked through an inclusion list for supporting characters that don’t significantly advance the plot (including Muslims, lesbians, the mentally ill, and the differently abled).
Juhi Chawla is treated unfairly because she has so little to do and receives so few outfit changes. But every time she is given a scene involving an emotional conflict, she kills it. The performers in Hush Hush look good and act decently, and when they are together, there is a sort of sibling vibe. However, Hush Hush only works occasionally.
A second season is permitted with the door unlocked. Given how this one ends, it has the potential to be much more exciting if the emphasis is placed on finding the villains rather than on domestic drama, clothing, and house interiors.
Hush Hush: Star Performance
Karishma Tanna wins the prize for being the show’s high point. I am playing a police officer who has made the decision to be strong despite her gender and to be a woman among males. She doesn’t have to be a strong woman with male characteristics; she can be a woman who experiences moments of fear and revulsion while working in a macho industry. Tanna portrays the characters convincingly, and you can see her channeling the anxiety of landing a deserving role after working in the field for a long time. I am here ready audience if this is the direction she wants to take her evolution.
The second-best performer is Kritika Kamra, who succeeds in her role in the drama of the program. If you consider it, the work is difficult. Soha Ali Khan is about the depth of emotion since, despite being an actor, she may not have realized how adept she is at sobbing. Please try if you think sobbing in front of the camera is a simple task. Shahana Goswami provides the harmony needed to give the narrative the complexity it deserves. Through her acting, she portrays Zaira as a lady whose actions are unpredictable. She was capable of acting as a counselor and a full-fledged ranter at the same time.
Juhi Chawla is depicted as a mystery about whom very little is known. Everyone else is merely a tool for exploring her tale, which is what the show is all about. Even though she plays a mystery, the performer doesn’t have much to do in the first season. because the writing is more fixated on the concept of her than the actual person. Ishi is therefore more concerned with the dialogue than with how she looks.
Ayesha Jhulka returns to the show, and she still possesses the talent to appear in films. It would be interesting to watch what projects she selects to establish herself as an actor with a fresh slate on the horizon. Her performance in Hush Hush is controlled from the start for a reason and explodes as she reveals herself.
