Feel Fresh with Amazon Original

Most of us have watched television during our childhood. Fortunately or unfortunately, we have been introduced to so called "Mega Serials" which use to run for years making the characters in the serial to become old in reality. We would have surely wished to see the end of them though they would have most likely got extended to Part 2 and so on.

Even when it is a short serial, we still wanted to see them all in one go. There were few reasons to it:

1. We may not be available all the time at home.
2. Recurring ads in between the serial plays a spoilsport.
3. Seeing the same face over and over again and when the actor is not performing well, there are all the more reasons to hate it.

To get rid of the above mentioned woes, we either stop watching them or divert our attention towards movies. Those were the things of the past. There will always be a period of renaissance. That has come now to India in the form of Amazon Original.

Why Amazon Original?

There are few reasons to it. First and foremost, as the name implies, it is Original which means you wouldn't have a chance to watch it elsewhere and secondly, the plot is really interesting and they feature some of the top actors not from Small screen but from the BIG screen.Above all, you can watch all the episodes in one go without any gap or annoying advertisements. What more would you want?

Amazon has been betting big on India for a while since ours is one of the fastest growing market with billion of viewers. There is a huge potential and I must say no one has utilised it to the fullest extent effectively but with Amazon coming into the picture, the competition would surely be heated up since the other production houses has to really buck up to improve their quality.

Amazon Original is available for FREE with Amazon Prime which is an icing to the array of offers it already offers on Prime. So when you get to save your time and money what more would you need?

Now coming to the Original Series that I have watched. While I was browsing the content on the dedicated Prime Video section, I came across Breathe and without giving a second thought I started to watch it. The main reason was the cast and crew. Yes. The Amazon Original features Actor Madhavan and what more would you need?

It begins with a girl committing suicide.


What is even more appealing is the trivia that comes along with it making you fully aware of what went in making that particular shot/episode, if there was a remarkable memory for the actor who has performed in it.

It also lists out the entire cast in a particular shot/episode from time to time along with their screen/real names which makes our life easier since even if we forget the name of any character, we can always refer.

Like I said, I was thrilled to see Madhavan in a Original Series. The introduction scene did send me goosebumps which is similar to watching him on the big screen on his first movie.

Madhavan is a single dad living with a boy who was diagnosed of lung ailment. He along with his Mother tried to make the life of the kid easy by being very caring and supportive. On the other hand, there were some murders which kept happening. 

Who was doing this murder and for what reason? The Original Series touched upon some "Need of the Hour" reforms like "Organ Donation" where Madhavan's son who is registered with the list seeking for organ donation had limited number of days to live. Being a dad, Madhavan could not do much since everything was done according to the procedures which gets delayed due to various reasons like finding the right donor, red tapism, priority(to be given to those who were registered first) and most importantly, the compatibility of the blood group of the organ donor.

The Amazon Original sends a strong message "Make Organ Donation Compulsory"

On the other hand, Senior Inspector Kabir starts investigating the murder. He himself has had troubled marriage since he lost his daughter due to his carelessness. This was also a learning point for many who would be watching this.

He gets some crucial clues. Was he able to find the culprit?


You will have to watch the Amazon Original to find out the answer. 

What I liked the most in this?

1. A new approach.
2. Great set of cast.
3. The plot.
4. Information/Trivia about the actors and the scene.
5. Message that was conveyed.
6. Performance by each actor which is beyond the comparison.
7. Realistic events and not fabricated or unnatural in any way.
8. Availability in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu with subtitles.

Like I said earlier, this is a refreshing experience for me as I get to see a new plot altogether at my convenience either sitting at home or even while I am travelling and with no ads, I can enjoy the non-stop, uninterrupted entertainment to my heart's content.

What I might have done had I been in that situation?

Taking a live is not in our hands and it is certainly a crime. While the Original Series portrays the circumstances that has made the person to commit the crime since there was no options left, the same could have been avoided had that person been given counselling. I would have surely sought the help of a counsellor who would have helped in getting rid of the negative thoughts. At the most, I would have seeked the help of press which I am sure would have helped flash my situation on their coverage which might have solved the problem.

If I could afford more money, I would have got it done overseas. On the other hand, I would have also surrendered myself to The Almighty because Miracles do happen at times....
