Voot Select’s recently released psychological crime thriller Asur will baffle you. It has all the elements to be a masterpiece. It will leave asking for more. The excitement, which has been created by the first episodes of the series, will only subside after the release of its second and perhaps last season. That most of us are eagerly waiting for the second season of Arshad Warsi-starrer ‘Asur—Welcome to Your Dark Side’ after the superlative success of its first season cannot be denied. Arshad Warsi (as Dhananjay Rajpoot ‘DJ’) and Barun Sobti (Nikhil Nair) stole the show in the recently released Voot Select’s psychological thriller. Besides their stellar performances in all the episodes, the ambiance, the background music and other related elements of mise-en-scene haunted the audiences.

The plot which is set in the backdrop of the mystical city of Varanasi, is about Nikhil Nair (Barun Sobti), who is a forensic-expert-turned-teacher, and DJ (Arshad Warsi). Nikhil returns to his roots at the Central Bureau of Investigation, and along with his former mentor DJ, finds himself caught in a cat-and-mouse game with a brutal serial killer. This gripping web series deals with a psychopath who thinks himself as the Kali of Kaliyug and challenges Lord Vishnu to reincarnate as Kalki (Kalki Avataar). The killer (a mystery) goes on killing people randomly who are somehow connected to God (connection yet-to-be-disclosed). The CBI team led by DJ and Nikhil finds out the guy, but they are not sure who is he, how does he looks and above all where he is. It is a fact that people are eagerly waiting for the second season of Asur. Asur is an awesome series with a very different presentation.

It is the debut web net series of Arshad Varsi. Asur features Ridhi Dogra, Anupriya Goenka, Sharib Hashmi, Amey Wagh, Pawan Chopra, Vishesh Bansal and Gaurav Arora. This series has been directed by Oni Sen and wriiten by Gaurav Shukla. Asur takes the audience on a journey of two opposing worlds – forensic science and mysteries of Indian mythology. People want to know who wins in this cat-and-mouse game with a brutal serial killer. The first series has raised numerous intriguing questions in our minds. Who is the real Asur? Who is Subh? Is DJ and Nikhil connected to Subh? Who is the actual killer, and why is he doing so? Did Subh really kill his father? Is it only about a psychopath killer?

According to myths, Asur is a human sans humanity. The intermingling of religion, science, conscience and humanity makes Asur a must-watch. The plot grips you from the word go and will keep you hooked till the end. Miss this season and the next one at your own risk! Will Kalki arrive? Has he arrived? These baffling questions might be answered in the consequent season(s).
