Undekhi 3 review: Engaging with surprising twist

What: ‘Undekhi 3’ – the third season of the successful crime thriller revolving on power, greed, love, betrayal, hate, faith and fate engages with surprising twists.

Undekhi 3 synopsis

Starting from where it ended, The Atwals face more crises as Malhotra (Varun Badola) shows interest in Atwal’s illegal trade, on the other hand the wedding dance night horror video showing Papaji (Harsh Chhaya) pops up. The ailing Papaji (Harsh Chhaya) is getting haunted by his past. While DSP Ghosh (Dibyendu Bhattacharya) comes back to Manali and his team Satinder (Rahul Bagga), Rashi (Lavvina Tanndon) are back to nab Papaji. Meanwhile Rinku’s trusted Lucky (Varun Bhagat) is getting serious with Papaji’s nurse Geet (Heli Daruwala).

How the past haunts Papaji and the Atwal’s struggle to maintain their supremacy and control finds the crux of the series which comes with surprising twists.


Undekhi 3 review

After two years of wait, the third season of ‘Undekhi’ is finally here. SonyLIV’s picturesque, intense show had lived up to its expectations in the first two seasons and obviously the stakes are high for such successful crime thrillers.

The USP of ‘Undekhi’ created by Sidharth Sengupta (popular TV series Balika Vadhu previous) and helmed by Ashish R. Shukla (very impressive Prague (2013) – previous) has been remarkable in its character development (papaji played by Harsh Chhaya in particular) twined by the two worlds we live in – the powerful and the weak.

Season three of ‘Undekhi’ gives arcs to a couple of important characters (naming them will turn me into a spoiler) as Malhotra (Varun Badola) emerges as the new challenge while Papaji (Harsh Chhaya) has to deal with his past and frightening future. The interest and intensity are maintained throughout and we see more of Papaji in this season which may feel repetitive to some as Papaji speaks in the same tone 24x7.

Saloni (Ayn Zoya) also appears and she comes with an interesting twist in the tale. While Rinku (Surya Sharma) is doing his best to regain control, Teji (Aanchal G Singgh) is firm in her determination. 

However, the final episode when Papaji’s past stands in front of him and confronts as Malhotra’s true identity gets revealed, it was a bit filmy for me. 


Undekhi 3 is again ruled by powerful performance by the ensembled cast.

Papaji (Harsh Chhaya) again excels as the sloshed patriarch

Rinku (Surya Sharma) is fabulous again.

Teji (Aanchal G Singgh) is fantastic.

Dibyendu Bhattacharya as the DSP this time is more serious and means business and the actor is outstanding once again.

Varun Badola as Malhotra shines

Saloni (Ayn Zoya) and Shivangi Singh as Muskan deserve special mention.

Good support comes from Satinder (Rahul Bagga), Rashi (Lavvina Tanndon), Lucky (Varun Bhagat) and Geet (Heli Daruwala).

Undekhi 3 – final words

All-in-all, ‘Undekhi 3’ is an engaging and well-acted, it doesn’t disappoint and it’s a well-made, picturesque and gripping web series to binge on.

Undekhi 3 is streaming on SonyLIV from May 10, 2024.
