Review: Sushmita Sen strikes back with 'Aarya'5 min read 22 Jun 2020, 03:14 PM IST
The show's pulp plot could engage in itself, but 'Aarya' focuses on its central character's motivations and limitations rather than her force
A teenager asks for money and her mother says no. The girl, precisely old enough to be convinced the world is against her, promptly whines about her brother’s spending money. The mother, multitasking around the kitchen, swiftly informs the daughter that she could get an allowance if she played a sport, like her brother. This is cleverly improvised incentive, from a woman who was just canoodling with her husband, indulging an in-joke involving an old movie song. Moments before that, she was suspended upside-down from gymnastic apparatus. All in a morning’s work. A woman balances.
