OTT web series Rudra The Edge of Darkness synopsis
The official adaptation of BBC’s Luther originally written and created by Neil Cross starring Idris Alba.
The Indian adaptation is penned by Ishaan Trivedi, Abbas and Hussain Dalal.
It’s the story of DCP Rudraveer Singh aka Rudra from the Special Crimes Unit of the Mumbai Police. The six episodes series is a conflict of emotions surrounding Rudra who while investigating a case involving the murder of the parents of Aliyah Choksi (Raashi Khanna) gets entangled in a web of truth, lies, faith, betrayal and more.
Rudra encounters evil criminals, sadist beasts, masters of mind games in this dark and thrilling six episodes as he fights personal turmoil’s and losses.
Ah at last the actor Ajay Devgn is back, the actor Ajay Devgn we loved in Jhakham, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Omkara .
Rajesh Mapuskar directs a gritty and ambiguous psychological drama having its unique dark tones, the Indian version of Luther is careful in its adaptation and doesn’t harm the reputation of the BBC original.
Fighting the deadly criminals outside even befriending a pretty smart one Aliya (Ragini Khanna), Raj Mapuskar’s creates a vicious circle for Rudra which is dark, bizarre but exciting.
The first episode sets the perfect pace and mood and the audience are in for a unique dark & never before seen intensity in an Indian cop thriller drama.
Rudra is more of an exploration of a human drama involving a brilliant cop dealing with intelligent and sharp minds who have chosen the wrong path which includes a child prodigy, a painter, also a simple looking man having a surreal fetish, etc which says how a person’s imperfection can turn dangerously dark and deadly.

Esha Deol is fine.
Ashwini Kalsekar has her moments as Rudra’s Boss.
