Director: Rajesh Mapuskar

Rating: 2.5 (out of 5)

Ajay Devgn suppresses his big-screen super-cop instincts to completely inhabit the troubled titular sleuth in Rudra: The Edge of Darkness , a slick but slavish remake of Luther, the British thriller series that, from 2011 to 2019, yielded 20 twisty episodes across five instalments.

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness brings together a bunch of tales of dark desires and desperate deeds that put a famed police investigator to the test. As the man goes about cracking the befuddling cases, he has to reckon with raging emotional demons that threaten to drive him off the rails.

Devgn's performance is among a handful of things that help the show paper over its rough edges. In his web debut, the Bollywood A-lister isn't a blustering, trigger-happy man in uniform who thrives on instilling the fear of God in law-lawbreakers. He plays Rudraveer Singh, a flawed but firm plainclothes detective who has solved more cases for his unit and got into more disciplinary flaps than any other officer.

On one level, Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is a somewhat unimaginative replication of the BBC Studios original, which benefitted no end from a full-bodied, loose-limbed star turn by Idris Elba, whose expressive face and mercurial demeanour created a lively canvas that conveyed a wide range of emotions and behavioural notes.

The Applause Entertainment production, too, depends wholly on the impact that the lead actor makes in the guise of a workaholic, sullen cop who is perpetually on a short fuse and struggling to come to terms with the decision of his wife Shaila (Esha Deol Takhtani) to leave him for another man (Satyadeep Misra).

Keeping his anger and agony in check is a big challenge as Rudra is drawn into tackling personal and professional issues without crossing the line. His failed marriage makes him emotionally volatile all right, but it does not rob him of his innate deductive acumen.

Rudra, as intriguing a policeman you will ever see in a Hindi web series, is filled with angst, prone to making impulsive decisions and in the habit of playing fast and loose with rules. No matter how tough things get for him, he remains focused on the job of bringing dangerous criminals to book while not always playing strictly by the book.

At stake are love, friendship and duty, but Rudra can take none of it at face value. As loyalties and realities, contexts and compulsions shift incessantly and both criminals and colleagues keep him on his toes, he must dodge a flurry of temptations and provocations.

Rudra is part of a crack investigation unit headed by joint commissioner of police Deepali Handa (Ashwini Kalsekar), who stands by him when other superiors are determined to let him cool his heels away from the action after he is suspended for using excessive force in pursuit of a paedophile.

On his return to work - his boss describes it as "an investment" when another senior police officer thinks of it as "a risk" - Rudra runs into Aliyah Choksi (Raashii Khanna), a young woman suspected of murdering her parents and dog. She is engaged in research on black holes and prides herself on being a genius. An odd relationship develops between Rudra and the cheeky girl - she is both an adversary and an ally.

In Luther, Ruth Wilson interpreted the character as an angsty yet cocky woman playing mind games with the male protagonist. Here, Raashii Khanna is a coquettish femme fatale who grins and grimaces her way through palpably vexed situations, undermining the innate efficacy of the role.

In the six episodes that constitute Rudra: The Edge of Darkness, the cop's work entails taking on criminal minds and wading through serious muck. An army commando on a murder spree, an artist with a grisly fetish, a cabbie-turned-serial killer and a ruthless mobster who wants to grab a few pieces of diamonds in the possession of a fine art dealer. Rudra is assisted by Prabal Thakur (Tarun Gahlot), a rookie who reveres him.

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness , with the exception of very minor tweaks necessitated by the change in backdrop, faithfully sticks to the Luther storyline. While that could be deemed a source of strength in some respects, one cannot help feeling that the writers of the show (Ishan Trivedi, Abbas Dalal and Hussain Dalal) could have done with a greater degree of localization.

The transference of the setting from London to Mumbai is a touch forced because the backdrop and real people of the cosmopolitan city do not become an integral part of the narrative. The Marathi ambience is conspicuous by its absence in the culture-agnostic Rudra: The Edge of Darkness . In fact, none of the major characters in the show either speaks even a smattering of the local language or answer to a name that could link them to the local ethos in any manner.

Those who haven't seen Luther at all or have seen it but do not remember much of it will find enough in Rudra: The Edge of Darkness to keep them hooked. This despite the fact that every episode begins by revealing the identity of the wrongdoer and the precise nature of the crime. It then follows Rudra and Prabal as they gather evidence against the culprit.

Atul Kulkarni plays the role of a police officer who has worked alongside Rudra for two decades and is his closest friend in the unit. The screenplay gives the fine actor little scope to display his wares until the fourth episode. In the last two parts of the show, Kulkarni springs to life and raises the game several notches. The series suddenly turns far more gripping.

The psychopaths that Rudra encounters are played by K.C. Shankar, Hemant Kher and Luke Kenny, but neither comes anywhere near upstaging the star of the show. But once Kulkarni comes into his own, he is more than a match for the lead actor. To Devgn's credit, he sticks to his guns and does not seek to get ahead of, or above, the script.

Ashwini Kalsekar and Tarun Gahlot are perfect as Rudra's boss and assistant respectively and do not enough not to let memories of Saskia Reeves and Warren Brown eclipse their performances, but Esha Deol Takhtani does not quite capture the verve that Indira Varma brought to the role in Luther.

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness isn't a big-budget movie riding on mere star power. It is the script that holds the key. If only the early passages weren't as tepid as they are, this would have been a worthy Indian version of a very British thriller. As things stand, the series passes muster only because of a few of the performances and its sustained technical finesse.

If Rudra: The Edge of Darkness  does not leave you asking for more, it isn't a complete turnoff either.

rudra avatar south movie review

Ajay Devgn has made a smashing debut on OTT and how with Rudra: The Edge of Darkness. Apprehensions were quite evident when the news of a Luther remake was announced, but Ajay Devgn has just nailed the role to the T. Ajay Devgn stepped into the shoes of Edris Elba where he is seen as a badass urbanised version of his much loved role Singham. The series begins with a mysterious chase between Rudra and a criminal while his team tries to find the victim who is a young girl. We see Ajay in a fearless avatar lurking or better yet ‘searching’ for something in the dark shadows. Later, he is welcomed back by Commissioner Deepali Handa as DCP after his vacation. Deepali is a no nonsense cop who understands Rudra’s unusual ways of solving cases but also looks for a backing of hard facts. Further we witness a mysterious call from Aliyah Choksi (Raashi Khanna) to the police about her parents’ murder. Later it is unveiled that Rudra has got a clean chit after almost being suspended in a case. While he is considered an asset, most see him as a liability. Meanwhile, Aliyah is a child prodigy who is doing clinical research on a special mission.

Rudra is quite beautifully woven together when it comes to different plotlines. But they can be a bit of a drag. We also get to see a glimpse of Rudra and his wife Shaila’s (Esha Deol) relationship which seems to have broken to pieces. Shaila seems to be dragged into the dark world of Rudra’s profession in many ways than one and she was more than done with him as Shaila has found a new ‘someone special’. The scene where Shaila tells Rudra that she has met someone will break your heart seeing Rudra’s reaction. This is also where we see Ajay Devgn’s brilliant acting at it’s best as his minimal reaction screamed the big emotion of a heartbreak.

Rudra is backed by a strong knit team of Atul Kulkarni, Ashwini Kalsekar Ashish Vidyarthi, Tarun Gahlot and others. Atul Kulkarni plays the strong support of Rudra and is always reading in between the lines of what his DCP is actually trying to say. With a calm demeanor and a stern perspective, his character sure is gravitating.

The chemistry between Ajay and Raashii is palpalble. Their slow burn flirting sure is seen throughout the series and it sure does keep you on your toes. Rudra is more urabnised than Luther’s first season and it is a fresh take on your usual crime series. While the show is spread across only 6 episodes, sometimes your just left thinking when will things pickup pace but the suspense only makes the wait worth it. But, a special mention has to go to the baddies of Rudra, who really put the life in the series. KC Shankar, Hemant Kher, Luke Kenny sure were creepy but they sure did put up a stellar performance. While Luther was loud in the British series, Ajay as Rudra was seen calm and suave.

All in all, it is a more then brilliant debut for Ajay on OTT with Rudra. If you can overlook the pace; which was just a personal preferce for me, the show should make it to your must watch list.

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness review: Ajay Devgn is the ray of hope in this faltering but edgy thriller

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is a well-executed remake of the psychological crime thriller Luther , and everything from the casting to the gripping storytelling is spot-on. However, the series stumbles in execution due to an uneven pace and a focus on solving crimes quickly with little detail.

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness review: Ajay Devgn is the ray of hope in this faltering but edgy thriller

  • Aishwarya Vasudevan

Last Updated: 09.35 AM, Mar 04, 2022

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is a race-against-the-clock thriller set in Mumbai that delves into the minds of highly intelligent criminals and the detective who hunts them. Even as the overarching series arc continues, each episode in the series features a new threat, depicting the grave personal cost at which DCP Rudra Veer Singh pursues criminals and killers and the unlikely friendship that he forms with Aliyah, a genius sociopath. In the series, Mumbai is more than just a backdrop for our hero's vigilante actions; it serves as the stage for the battle between good and evil. Even amid darkness, Rudra believes in the existence of love in the world. Because, at the end of the day, humanity is all we have. And it is for this belief that Rudra gives up everything.

Over the years, we have seen Ajay Devgn in one or two cases in each of his cop roles. Now, just imagine getting him to solve cases throughout six episodes. Well, that's what Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is in a nutshell. The series is based on the hit British series Luther , which features Idris Elba in the titular role. Raashii Khanna is seen as Aliyah, a sociopath, originally played by Ruth Wilson.

In every episode, we see Devgn solving crimes, which get gorier and more gruesome as the series progresses. In the very first episode, it's established that Khanna is a criminal who befriends Devgn's character in an unrequited way. Although he is among the smartest cops, he fails to arrest her for her crimes, even though she keeps on repeating them the whole time.

image_item

But that lacks much convincing, knowing that he is a cop who was put on the job to wipe out criminals in the city. Yes, Luther has a similar plot, but it could have been a correction in a sense. Instead, we see Aliyah becoming Rudra's go-to person for catching other criminals.

Every episode is like a Crime Patrol episode, where we see the weirdest and most dangerous criminals going on killing sprees in the bylanes of Mumbai. Most of the episodes are set against the backdrop of night, as the title says, "Edge of darkness."

The first three episodes are thrilling enough to make the whole series gripping and intriguing. Every episode has a serial killer who is revealed in just a few minutes. Yes, the series is nowhere near the whodunit genre, and we don't have to scratch our heads to figure out who the killer is.

Although I have not watched Luther , I know that in the British series, the hunt for the killer stretches for more than an episode. While in Rudra , it's more about Devgn's character facing his inner demons and showcasing his suave while solving the case in a jiffy in just one episode. The tagline of the series has been repeated so many times that it just becomes a known dialogue when the makers are going to put it in the next time.

Rudra is backed by an exemplary supporting cast and interesting subplots, so to speak. But everything goes lost in translation when lifting Devgn up and above all. Knowing the actor's calibre for his work in movies from the past three decades, Rudra could have been a cakewalk. Instead, the makers make it more challenging to show the effortless actions of the talented star. Devgn is shown more as an emotional person and his action sequences get meddled with that, which is kind of a dealbreaker.

Not just that, the other supporting cast, including Atul Kulkarni, Ashwini Kalsekar, Tarun Gahlot, Ashish Vidyarthi, and Satyadeep Misra, has a great character graph. But barring Kulkarni, no one else gets to show their acting prowess or make any impact with their characters. As the head of the Special Crimes Unit, Kalsekar was her usual brilliant self. Her no-nonsense attitude is something she brings to every character she plays.

While Kulkarni matches up with Devgn as his colleague, his character trajectory becomes predictable by the time you reach the third episode. So does Khanna, in her seductive avatar. The actor, Aliyah, tries to induce sexual tension between Rudra and her. But, their chemistry is not as electrifying as it demands it to be. The actor, who also makes her OTT debut with Rudra , seamlessly gets forgotten and just bounces back and forth once or twice in each episode.

Another actor who has also made her way to OTT is Esha Deol Takhtani. With a heavy heart, I have to say that she is the most disappointing aspect of Rudra . Unfortunately, it feels like the actor didn't make enough efforts to create even a slight impact as her character, Shaila, the estranged wife of Rudra.

With Rudra, director Rajesh Mapuskar (like his previous works Ferrari Ki Sawaari and Marathi film Ventilator ) tried to make it heavy on emotions, which sadly doesn't work in favour of the series. The writing by Ishaan Trivedi, Abbas, and Hussain Dalal sticks to Neil Cross' creation but gives it a very modern Indian approach. However, the fast pace of solving crimes in each episode fails to create the punch that it aspires to be.

It's an out-and-out Ajay Devgn series, and the actor has made a fantastic OTT debut. However, there are a few emotional sequences that seem slightly uncomfortable for the actor, knowing that he is a huge action star. Nevertheless, the actor makes it up by letting his eyes do the talking, but there is less to converse about this time.

There's scope for the second season going by the story of the original series. But the end gives a little chance to look forward to the next instalment.

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness is a well-made remake of the psychological crime thriller Luther , and everything from the casting to the compelling storytelling is apt. However, the series falters in its execution with the uneven pace and getting crimes solved quickly with limited detailing.

Rudra Series Review: A Brilliantly Executed, Edge of The Seat Thriller

rudra avatar south movie review

We have no dearth of investigative shows, flaunting high-octane action sequences and interrogation room conversations. However, not all have the capacity to intrigue the audiences convincingly.

Rudra is Ajay Devgn’s OTT debut. So, the hype and build-up surrounding the series were sky-high. But has the Singham of the Indian Film Industry made a stellar debut? Though the headline of my review is enough for you to understand, I will try and get into further depths as we move forward.

Moreover, the  series has a blooper  and a pretty big one too. Read on to find out more.

Table of Contents

Rudra Review Summary

Though Ajay Devgn highlights this investigative hair-raiser, Rudra is carried by several other sparkling performances. It is a brilliantly executed, edge-of-the-seat thriller series that keeps you glued to the screen and leaves you craving for more towards the end.

It has a palatable mix of ingredients, enough to serve a delicious binge-watching encounter.

Rudra Synopsis

Starring Ajay Devgn in the titular role of Rudra (Rudraveer Singh), the series is helmed by director Rajesh Mapuskar. Interestingly, it is backed by BBC Studios India, which itself speaks volumes of the expectations from Rudra.

Moving forward, Rudra stars some veterans of Indian Cinema like Ashwini Kalsekar, and Atul Kulkarni combined with newcomers like Raashii Khanna and Tarun Gahlot.

The story revolves around Rudra’s personal and professional lives. He is an officer of the Special Criminal Unit and finds it challenging to maintain a proper work-life balance. However, that doesn’t make him any less sharp at his job.

Throughout the series, you get to witness Rudra and his team solve some callous murders happening across Mumbai.

What works for Rudra?

Rudra is a series well led by the entire cast. It delivers a wholesome experience containing several visual delights.

Captivating Plot

There is no one narrative in Rudra. Almost every episode carries a new and challenging criminal case, which keeps the plot novel. The crimes look raw and feel fresh to the eye. In effect, that facilitates the investigation and makes it more intriguing.

You feel tempted to know what’s coming next. This is particularly necessary when the genre pertains to crime, thrill, and mystery.

The plot reminded me of Abhay starring Kunal Khemu in the lead role.

Rudra effortlessly amalgamates plots and keeps you hooked through its tantalizing screenplay. It keeps switching between Rudra’s personal and professional life, which provides a balancing act.

Since the criminal cases are already high on tension, a well-thought-out screenplay was necessary.

Performances

This is something that I want to, specifically, mention in detail. Rudra has some brilliant performances, not limited to only the well-established actors.

We all know what Ajay Devgn can do. He is an intense actor and knows how to remain raw. Ajay’s subtle portrayal of Rudraveer Singh allows you to think of him as a versatile artist who can drop the  Singham  image for a character-driven role.

He occasionally cracks jokes, consistently remains on a vigil, and intermittently looks inside himself. Rudra’s character is based on the premise that he can get into darkness, used as a figure of speech, and think like criminals. Ajay Devgn’s screen presence is superb, and he nails his part perfectly. 

rudra avatar south movie review

What is most exciting to witness in Rudra is Raashii Khanna as Aaliyah Choksi. She is the dream character every writer wants to have. Smart, intelligent, and full of mysteries. I don’t know who Raashii Khanna is, and I can’t recall having watched her, but she is fantastic.

If this was her first outing in a prominent role, the Indian Film Industry has a new rockstar. She has portrayed a complex character intricately without doing anything silly in the process. If Ajay Devgn brings sparkle to the story, Raashii Khanna lights it up.

A few days ago, I watched The Fame Game , which had a police officer assisting Rajshri Deshpande. I wanted to write about him for the short yet impact-worthy appearance, but unfortunately, I couldn’t find his name in the credit roll.

rudra avatar south movie review

Coincidentally, the same guy is playing a police officer in Rudra. He is  Tarun Gahlot  and here Tarun is assisting Rudraveer Singh. However, he has a more prominent role to play this time around.

Tarun Gahlot is so refined and accurate as an actor that you’d simply fall in love with him and wish whatever may happen; this guy should remain safe till the end. 

Moreover, Atul Kulkarni and Ashwini Kalsekar are a treat to watch on screen. Though the screen share for Ashwini is on the lower side, she remains authoritative throughout. Atul Kulkarni gets a full-fledged role as Gautam Navlakha, Rudra’s close friend.

Kulkarni is a master of acting, with zero doubt. He is a natural actor who knows how to be expressive and restricted at the same time.

rudra avatar south movie review

Esha Deol and Satyadeep Misra have done a decent job and delivered what is asked of them. There was no way they could do more since their characters were not meant to grow big.

Background Score

Rudra’s background score is well-stitched and blended with the plot’s narration. There are no fake build-ups, as we see in some series.

Fewer Episodes

Sometimes, the number of episodes is in stark contrast to their individual run time. Rudra is not short in length, but it only has six episodes.

There is a psychological factor at work. People may want to divide their watch schedule into two parts just because the number of episodes is on the higher side. It keeps playing in mind.

With just six episodes, you’d probably wish to finish Rudra in one go, regardless of its overall duration.

What Doesn’t Work for Rudra?

Nothing much here, but I have managed to put up some points.

A dialogue in bad taste

In Rudra, there is a scene where Ajay Devgn’s character mocks a criminal saying, “she doesn’t love you… your are impotent”. Though the character this was addressed to was a criminal, I felt it was negative and could have been avoided as a dialogue.

I would have loved to hear it if that particular dialogue had added any value to the scene or story. However, its sole purpose was to ridicule the man, which seemed odd. Everything was done, and the task was complete; the writers could have simply chosen something else, but they didn’t.

This is just an observation and constructive feedback and not a serious matter that some social media freaks would want to put in the limelight.

All about Rudra

Though it was understandable from the name that Rudra would be about Rudraveer Singh’s life, maybe the makers could have delved a bit into the lives of other characters too.

They could have traveled into Prabal’s life or given a glimpse of Deepali Handa’s background story, but nothing happened on that front.

Blooper in Rudra

Yes, after The Fame Game, I have managed to notice a blooper in Rudra too. I am not sure for how long they would keep it, but here it is:

In episode 6 at -8:40 (approx.), the character named Gautam is talking to Rudra, and he refers to the latter by his own name, i.e., Gautam.

Should you watch Rudra?

Definitely, Rudra marks an astonishing OTT debut by Ajay Devgn and ensures you get goosebumps.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is Rudra based on a real story?

No, Rudra is a fictional story.

Will there be a season 2 of Rudra?

Probably, yes, there will be a second season of Rudra. However, no official announcements have been made yet. 

What is the meaning of Rudra?

Rudra means someone who eradicates problems from the root.

Rudra The Edge of Darkness Review: Welcome back, Ajay Devgn. We missed you

Ajay devgn forays into the ott space with rudra: the edge of darkness, a remake of idris elba's luther. set the original aside, watch with an open mind, and the singham star will not disappoint you. rudra is currently streaming on disney+ hotstar..

Listen to Story

Rudra The Edge of Darkness review: Ajay Devgn is superb in this well-made crime series.

"Pura desh jumlon pe chal raha hai, relationship kya cheez hai?" says Rudra, the bad-cop-with-a-good-heart to his female boss, giving us a peek into his personal life, whilst they discuss a case. Just another office, just another coffee-break talk, just one of the many one-liners Ajay Devgn's Rudraveer Singh deftly delivers.

Take a moment to let that purported jibe - and the fact that Ajay Devgn was the one delivering it - sink in, and keep watching Disney+ Hotstar's Rudra: The Edge of Darkness. The 6-part series is a remake of Idris Elba's BBC drama Luther. Let that be just an FYI, and then forget all about Luther. One must, in order to give Ajay's OTT debut a fair chance. For Ajay isn't stepping into Elba's shoes, per se. He has a shiny new one, and he seems quite at ease in them.

Much like Elba’s John Luther, Rudra's criminal bent of mind helps him crack cases that seem uncrackable. He even admits that there may be more competent cops in the department, but their minds are not as crooked as his. In that, Rajesh Mapuskar, director, stays faithful to the material. Remakes could very easily turn into jumlas. To dive into the depths of Deepika Padukone's Gehraiyaan only to realise it is Woody Allen's Matchpoint felt just that. But by rigidly sticking to the original, Mapuskar has ensured the audience doesn't feel cheated.

But the timelines of these two universes - Ajay's and Elba's - diverge when it comes to the man himself. Juxtaposed with Elba's volatile, almost violent Luther, Ajay's Rudra is quiet, mostly speaking softly through his clenched teeth, more Omkara than Gangajal or Singham. Yet, providing the audience with ample opportunity to whistle, even as they sit in the quietude of their homes, as opposed to the theatres. Those one-liners, that's where they come in handy.

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness also marks Esha Deol's OTT debut, as Rudra's estranged wife Shaila Addagatla (Zoe Luther, played by Indira Varma in the original). She and Rudra are separated. And while that is a great source of pain for him, great enough to punch a hole in a drywall in a scene where she tells him she's met someone else, Esha's placid expressions grab our attention. And the camera is not even on her. Aside from a little Yuva hangover where Ajay and Esha were cast opposite each other, her presence does little for us. And it's a shame, given the vitality of her character in the storyline.

Once you look away from Rashii Khanna's extra-dilated eyes and stark-red wig-ish hairdo, her Dr Aliyah Choksi (Alice Morgan, played by Ruth Wilson in the original), grows on you. A child prodigy, as it were, Rudra meets her just after she's murdered her parents and her dog so calculatedly that he's unable to pin her. She pops up into his personal and professional life every now and then, stalking him and Shaila at her will, insinuating he's into her one moment and holding a knife to his throat the other, and sometimes helping him decode a criminal mind. Together, Rudra and Aliyah make a deliciously nasty pair, feeding off each other's crazies.

The darkness the makers so loudly advertise in the title, though, was nowhere to be found. Or at least not in the first three episodes provided for review. One wonders, therefore, if branding something as 'dark' makes for a better sales pitch? As if to position yourself in the content jungle that OTTs have become, gritty is the way to go, and it's not enough to show the audience that, one must tell it to them, lest they miss it.

An uncomfortable show; Review on Rudra: The Edge of Darkness

An uncomfortable show; Review on Rudra: The Edge of Darkness

First things first, Rudra: The Edge of Darkness doesn’t make for comfortable viewing. While there is an overdose of crime dramas and thrillers on various OTT channels, the dark side is touched upon only by a handful of these. The names that come to mind are Paatal Lok and Abhay. While the former still has a bit of humour in there, the latter stays dark, though in a filmy style.

However, Rudra takes a totally different turn. It is dark not just in terms of theme but also figuratively and literally. You don’t get to see much of a sunlight, the atmosphere created is purposefully claustrophobic, no one smiles, no once cracks a joke, and the mood is grim right through.

rudra avatar south movie review

As a result, you hunt for some breathing space, as you feel stuffed amidst all the psychological killers who could well be straight out of Criminal Minds. Someone kills because she wants her genius to be proved, another abducts women because he wants to drink their blood, a crazy guy loves to sniff lady handbags, while another amputates women at will till he gets what he wants.

The world is indeed dark out there in this psychological thriller and our hero (Ajay Devgn) waits for them in the dark, more so as his own life is not rosy either, what with a wife (Esha Deol) who has moved on and an admirer (Raashi Khanna) whom he doesn’t want around him.

Director Rajesh Mapuskar takes a shift from making a feel-good film like Ferrari Ki Sawaari to something gritty like Rudra where you need a strong stomach to digest the ongoing proceedings. It takes time to get on with the mood of every episode that lasts close to an hour. Of course, presence of Ajay Devgn helps, though he is more in the mode of Govind Nihalani’s Thakshak than Rohit Shetty’s Singham. So in Rudra, cars don’t fly; instead it’s a click of a pen in the interrogation room that adds to the tension.

As a result, the first season may very well witness a polarised response from the viewers. Those who like even their crime tales to be solved in a fun way, Rudra may turn out to be way too dark. However, those who have been exposed to such kind of web series from the West—especially during the last few years of the pandemic when OTT offered way too many of these across various channels—then this Indian adaptation of BBC’s Luther would make for a good watch.

Take a pick!.

Rudra Director: Rajesh Mapuskar Genre: Crime Platform: Disney + Hotstar Language: Hindi Rating: 3/5

Rudra: The Edge of Darkness Trailer Out! Ajay Devgn Is A Fierce Cop On A Mission

Rudra has a dark and complex narrative that is an idiosyncratic race-against-the-clock thriller delving into the psyche of highly intelligent criminals and the detective who hunts them.

rudra avatar south movie review

Can pinning one’s hopes on humanity push one towards sacrificing everything to save it? Disney+ Hotstar’s latest crime thriller, Rudra – The Edge of Darkness discovers just that as it takes viewers on a journey into the dark oceanic depths of criminal minds. Helmed by ace director Rajesh Mapuskar, this riveting psychological crime drama is headlined by celebrated actor Ajay Devgn in the fierce avatar of a cop for the very first time on a digital series.

Spanning across 6 episodes, this series is an Indian rendition of the iconic, globally successful British series – Luther. Produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios India, the crime drama features a stellar cast that includes Raashi Khanna, Esha Deol, Atul Kulkarni, Ashwini Kalsekar, Tarun Gahlot, Ashish Vidyarthi, and Satyadeep Misra in pivotal roles; the Hotstar Specials’ is coming soon on Disney+ Hotstar and will be available in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam and Bengali.

Rudra has a dark and complex narrative that is an idiosyncratic race-against-the-clock thriller delving into the psyche of highly intelligent criminals and the detective who hunts them. It will see Ajay Devgn ’s titular character of an intuitive and instinctive police officer fighting for the truth in darkness as he wades through a grim and complex web of crimes and criminals and corruption with a wrathful, steely grit.

rudra avatar south movie review

Mounted on a mammoth production scale, with Rudra – The Edge of Darkness, Disney+ Hotstar expands its library of hair-raising thrillers. The racy and thrilling crime saga has been shot across multiple unique locations in Mumbai and reimagines the city from the lens of criminals. The series will see Rudra fight against powerful forces to reveal the truth in the exciting new whodunnit crime drama.

Actor Ajay Devgn said, “The world of digital streaming has always fascinated me, and I am excited to make my digital acting debut into long-format content with a riveting character and title such as Rudra. What enticed me about the character is his nuanced, multi-faceted personality and his grit; something that viewers have never witnessed before at this scale in Indian Entertainment. I am elated for my fans and viewers across India to witness the magic of Rudra come alive on screen and I hope they fall in love with the show as intensely as we have worked towards it.”

Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment said, “Rudra as a series marks a first for Ajay Devgn who will make his digital series debut, and we are thrilled that we got the opportunity to bring him to the world of Streaming. Bringing a unique storytelling format and powerful characters together at an ambitious scale, the show follows a troubled cop’s journey to seek the truth in a grim world of darkness. It is always exciting for us to collaborate with BBC Studios and that reflects in the great production value of the series . With Rudra, we take forward our creative partnership with industry leader Disney+ Hotstar, and hope to continue entertaining audiences all over the world”

Director Rajesh Mapuskar said, “Rudra is an exceptionally special series, narrative-wise, as it spins a darker and grimmer tale to the usual cop and crime drama. Here we have a grey hero who believes in living in the dark to discover the truth. The psyche of criminal minds is explored here in a never-before-seen manner. The audience takes away some understanding of how the deeply alluring minds of the criminals work. I hope the series receives much love and appreciation from the audience.”

Actor Esha Deol said, “The love that I have received from my fans since the first announcement of my return has been humbling and I am really glad to mark my return with a show as riveting as Rudra- The Edge of Darkness. It has been a thrilling ride to once again share the screen with my friend & co actor like Ajay Devgn who from day one of our shoot eased me into being back in front of the camera. During the shoot, we were back to sharing the same on-screen chemistry we have had while shooting for our earlier films together – and the innumerable pranks too! While being back to experiencing the pre-release rush, I really look forward to getting one step closer to the audience through my character and the show.”
