Breathe: Into the Shadows is an Indian crime thriller web series that premiered on Amazon Prime Video in July 2020. The show is directed by Mayank Sharma and stars Abhishek Bachchan, Amit Sadh, and Nithya Menen in leading roles. The second season of the show has eight episodes.

The show takes place in Delhi and follows a couple, Avinash Sabharwal (Abhishek Bachchan) and Abha Sabharwal (Nithya Menen), whose daughter Siya is kidnapped by a serial killer known as 'The Mask'. Avinash is a successful psychiatrist and Abha is a chef. The couple is devastated by the kidnapping and are left with no choice but to follow the kidnapper's instructions. The kidnapper demands that Avinash commit a series of murders in order to save his daughter.

Enter Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh), a cop who has been struggling with his own demons since the events of the first season. Kabir is brought in to lead the investigation into Siya's kidnapping and, as he delves deeper into the case, he realizes that there is more to the kidnapper's demands than meets the eye.

One of the main themes of the show is the lengths that a parent will go to in order to save their child. Through his actions, Avinash is willing to sacrifice everything for his daughter, including his sanity and his own code of ethics. Another theme is the psychological toll that these actions take on the characters involved. Avinash must confront his own demons as he carries out the kidnapper's demands, and Kabir is plagued by his own guilt and trauma from his past.

The show is also notable for its exploration of mental illness. Avinash regularly sees patients in his psychiatry practice and it's clear that he himself is struggling with his own mental health throughout the show. Through this lens, Breathe: Into the Shadows highlights the need for mental health awareness and resources.

The performances in the show are excellent, with Abhishek Bachchan and Amit Sadh both delivering compelling and nuanced performances. Nithya Menen brings a warm energy to the show that contrasts well with the darker themes. The supporting cast is equally strong, with standouts including Shruti Bapna as Avinash's colleague and Saiyami Kher as a mysterious figure from Kabir's past.

Breathe: Into the Shadows is also notable for its technical aspects. The cinematography is slick and stylish, with a strong use of color and shadow to create a moody atmosphere. The score by Karthik Dial Seydou is haunting and atmospheric, adding to the tension of the show.

Overall, Breathe: Into the Shadows is a compelling and tense crime thriller that explores themes of parenthood, mental illness, and the lengths that people will go to in their darkest moments. With strong performances and stylish direction, the show is a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Breathe: Into the Shadows is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on July 9, 2020.
