If the first season had ISIS militants and ISI operatives, the current season features Pakistan’s intelligence unit partnering with Tamil rebels to assassinate the Indian Prime Minister (Seema Biswas).

Srikant, on the other hand, left the Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell (TASC) and went to work for an IT company. He works from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., drops his children off at school, and spends time at home. But he’s still as methodical and compulsive as ever. He emphasises the value of “quality time” – “family time.” He also ensures that no one uses their phones at the dinner table. However, a new job does not always imply a better living.

His wife, Suchitra (Priyamani), has drifted away from him, and his daughter, Dhriti, want to be independent. As though Srikant had returned to a house that couldn’t accommodate him. He, too, is not happy with his work. His supervisor, a 28-year-old, bullies him. Also, tells him not to be a “minimum guy.” He still meets his old friend JK from the TASC. Additionally, he is keen on learning what’s happening in the force. 

When a Tamil rebel sleeper cell activates, it joins forces with the Pakistani ISI. Their plan is to attack the Indian and Sri Lankan Prime Ministers. With the help of veteran rebel followers in India and Sri Lanka, exiled Tamil rebel commanders in London and France plot the specifics.

Sajid (Shahab Ali), the first season’s scooter bomber, lends a hand to the rebels. Despite their best attempts and Sajid’s terrifyingly personal attack on Srikant, the insurgents are pursued by Indian intelligence and the local Chennai Police. A cat and mouse pursuit ensues, culminating in a wonderfully crafted conclusion shot in one continuous shot.

All of the other characters from Tamil Nadu are mostly Tamil actors. Also. keeping with the show’s commitment to authenticity. It’s refreshing to witness an accurate depiction of a group that has long been misrepresented by Bollywood.
