Hostages Season 2 review

Gets hotter, some unique surprises and adds more humanity that’s how Hostages Season 2 created by OmriGivon, YeziraIvrit & Rotem Shamir, directed by Sachin Krishn & Sudhir Mishra (Series Director) respects season 1 and gives full justice.

The screenplay by Nisarg Mehta is tight and engaging with Ronit Roy leading the force with elan.

A perfect binge watch for the lovers of thrillers and drama, Hostages Season 2 is a smartly placed, twisty crime thriller series.  Made with the kind of verve that enables almost all the twists to hit us with some good force of surprises.


Hostages season 2 is further elevated by super strong central performance by Ronit Roy.Good to see veteran Kanwaljit Singh while Divya Dutta is a welcome addition, Dino Morea springs a surprise, Shibani Dandekar is truly hot and adds a different twist. Shilpa Shukla has a flashy cameo. Amit Sial is competent. Shweta Bose is fantastic. And then there is Danish Husain (cannot revel more and turn a spoiler). Yes, last but not the least Asif Basra – fabulous.


Produced bySameer Nair, Rishi Negi, Deepak Dhar & Deepak Segal, the production values are first rate. Music by Karel Antonin deserves special mention.

Flaws in Hostages Season 2

This ironic cat and mouse drama that changes position and keeps you guessing, for a while does get into the familiar zone and turns predictable for a while.

Any scene that should be deleted at once

The opening scene, that scene with Divya Dutta with that guy, that ‘typical’ police officer. 

Any memorable scene/dialogue

The scene with Asif Basra

Bottom line

Hostages Season 2 is a compelling & thrilling follow up. If you have loved season 2 then you cannot afford to miss this follow up.
