Leo is an undertaker by profession, a free spirit at heart. One day, he gets a dead body of one Richard Burkshaw to prepare for funeral service, but when he reaches the church there seems to be no one to claim the body. A small box of memory cards found in the coffin leads to him seeing flashes of Richard’s life in real. Freaked out, he disposes the body in a secluded valley, but Richard doesn’t seem to let go of Leo. Is it a random coincidence or destined fate?
- Parchhayee explores Karma/Fate with a new light in their latest episode, titled Living With The Dead. Your small mistake in life can have an impact on someone else’s life in a way you can’t even imagine. It comes back to haunt you, and the 11th episode of Parchhayee, takes the haunting in a thrillingly literal sense.
- The short, crisp and thrilling opening sequence ropes you tight in the episode, a simple game of dart turning deadly that leaves you in anticipation of how it turns out. The astute way the creators have foreshadowed the conclusion of the series in the first few scenes are outstandingly brilliant in hindsight.
- Darshan Kumar, who has majorly played supporting roles, makes a startling impression on you with his performance. His character, Leo, is a man who lives life on his own terms, never the one to look back. Richard’s presence changes it completely, and the transformation in Leo is gradual yet strong, and Darshan plays it out really well.
- Shanu Singh Rajput has done the story justice with his telling cinematography, from beginning till the very end, creating the required mysterious vibe through his shots. Same goes for the background music, which elevates and lowers when necessary.
- Not a thing.
As the end nears, Parchhayee just seems to get better and better with each episode.
- Parchhayee marks Darshan’s debut into digital; he will also be featured in Amazon Prime’s The Family Man and Applause Entertainment’s India Strikes- 10 Days.
