Breathe 2 – Amazon Prime

One of the early entrants in the OTT space, Breathe was special as a 2018 release. As a cop, Amit Sadh had a job to nab a common man turned criminal [Madhavan].

Abhay 2 – ZEE5

When Abhay released last year, it threw a pleasant surprise with Kunal Kemmu doing exceedingly well as a UP based brooding cop out to solve the deadliest and meanest of crimes. While every episode of this Ken Ghosh created series threw a new case, personal story of Kunal raised intrigue. The crimes are now expected to take an even more evil route in the second season.
