Killer Soup: Manoj Bajpayee’s dark comedy series is on OTT
In the realm of Indian streaming content, Netflix has once again proven its prowess with the release of the highly anticipated black comedy crime thriller series, Killer Soup. Premiering the eight episodes of its first season on 11 January 2024.
Co-written by the talented Abhishek Chaubey, along with Harshad Nalawade, Anant Tripathi, and Unaiza Merchant, Killer Soup takes center stage under the directorial vision of Abhishek Chaubey himself. The series introduces an intriguing premise, set in the fictional hill station of Mainjur, Tamil Nadu, where the plot thickens around Swathi, an aspiring yet talent-challenged nurse turned home chef.
The stellar cast is led by the powerhouse duo of Konkona Sen Sharma and Manoj Bajpayee, who skillfully navigate their roles in this darkly comedic tale. What adds an extra layer of intrigue is Manoj Bajpayee’s portrayal of dual roles, bringing depth and complexity to the character dynamics. As the narrative unfolds, viewers are taken on a roller-coaster ride through the eccentricities of Mainjur, where conspiracies simmer, and secrets bubble to the surface.
At the heart of Killer Soup is Swathi’s audacious plan to replace her husband, Prabhakar Shetty, with her lover, a squint-eyed doppelganger named Umesh Pillai, played by Manoj Bajpayee. The series weaves a web of deception, crime, and culinary chaos, creating a narrative tapestry that keeps audiences hooked from the first episode.
With Netflix’s stamp of quality and a stellar cast bringing the story to life, Killer Soup is poised to leave an indelible mark on the canvas of Indian digital content.
