KAMINI REVIEW: DETECTIVE ARNOB'S CASES ARE NOT SOMETHING THE NATION WANTS TO KNOW

Men in the village are disappearing at night. Many believe it to be the work of a mystical enchantress Kamini. Inexperienced detectives Samya and Arnob, who opened their own firm, Inner Eye Detective Agency receive their first case which has a strong link to these chain of events. Whoever mistakenly called them a defective agency couldn’t have been more correct (not just about them, but about the entire series.) The inside space of the Inner Eye Detective Agency has all the elements which are bound to impress a Bengali bibliophile. It has posters of Satyajit Ray’s Feluda, Hoichoi’s Byomkesh Bakshi, and Robert Downey Junior starrer Sherlock Holmes. Arnob’s overdose of love and affection for all the characters mentioned above make us cringe because although he worships each of them with agarbatti, he fails to imbibe their characteristics. WHO IS KAMINI? Although the web series has been named Kamini, Barkha Bisht who plays the mystical enchantress hardly gets enough screen space. This was only the first series, broken down into four episodes and yet, no one knows why Kamini abducts men unless you have already watched Stree in 2018. Kamini fails to get a proper introduction, instead, we hear about her activities from bytes collected by a local journalist. SEX JOKES BECOME LEWD There’s a fine line between sex jokes and lewd gestures and that’s where Kamini crosses the line. Breasts covered in blouses get more focus and attention than dialogues, characters and sequences under Rick Basu’s direction. Even amidst life-threatening situations, the only thing the character focuses on is the milkwoman's large breasts. Even Kamini, who is supposed to be someone who abducts men for their lewd gestures, is seen in a two-piece costume, with jewellery. Kamini seems to have drawn inspiration from Stree, Naagin, and porn. The worst part remains, that this series will be back with a second season. Ratings: 0.5 stars
