Killer Soup, the recently released Netflix web series, boasts a talented cast including Konkana Sen Sharma, Manoj Bajpai, Anula Navleker, Kani Kusruti, Sayaji Shinde, Nassar, and Anbu Thasan. Directed by Abhishek Chubby, the plot unfolds in the imaginary town of Mainjur in South India.

The story revolves around Swathi Shetty (Konkana Sen Sharma), an inspired chef, and Prabhakar Shetty (Manoj Bajpayee), who plays a dual role as Umesh. The narrative takes an intriguing turn when Prabhakar catches Swathi and Umesh together, leading to a scuffle that results in Prabhakar’s death. Swathi takes matters into her own hands, transforming Umesh’s appearance and presenting him as her husband. Meanwhile, a private investigator, hired by Prabhakar due to Umesh’s blackmail for money, faces an unfortunate demise, prompting an investigation by Inspector Hassan (Nassar) and ASI S. Thupalli (Anbu Thasan).


Sayali Shinde (Arvind Shetty), a prominent businessman, resort owner, and drug dealer, plays the role of Prabhakar’s brother. His involvement in the narrative adds layers to the storyline, creating a complex family dynamic. Anula Navlekar (Apeksha Shetty), Arvind Shetty’s daughter, assumes a pivotal role in the series. Her character adds depth and intrigue to the unfolding mystery.

While the performances of the cast, especially Konkana Sen Sharma and Manoj Bajpayee, shine through, the series is marred by a slow pace and a stretched-out storyline. The eight-episode series features several twists and turns, but the narrative fails to maintain a consistently engaging pace. The biggest flaw lies in the quick acceptance of Umesh in Prabhakar’s role after his death, which is poorly handled by the director.

Despite its shortcomings, Killer Soup manages to keep viewers hooked with its mystery and strong acting. If you can overlook the pacing issues and appreciate the performances, it might be worth a watch.
