The way ‘Aarya’ gave Sushmita the role she was due.



Sushmita Sen was thought to be the king of Bollywood following her win as the only Indian to be named the Miss Universe in 1994. Her energy on screen was fresh; however, the diminutive actress has never been in roles suited to her talents.

It was not a great start with a string of flops such as Mahesh Bhatt’s Dastak (1996) along with the Tamil film “Ratchagan” (1997) before David Dhawan’s Biwi No.1, which made her famous. It was expected of Sushmita to rise following that. Still, her career slowed down to deceive with performances in “Aankhen” (1993) as well as ‘MainHoon Na’ (2004) and “Maine Pyar Kyunkya” (2005), which was the savior.

Sushmita is gorgeous with an eye for fashion. In the early 2000s were thrilled to cast Sushmita in special dance numbers. “Shakalaka Baby” from ‘Mudhalvan’ (1999) and ‘Mehboob Mere’ from the film ‘Fiza’ (2000) are timeless hits, with the gorgeous actor capturing the music’s incredible energy.

A brief break from Bollywood to focus on the sake of parenting was followed by difficult times fighting Addison’s Disease. A big comeback appeared unlikely before the crime drama “Aarya” from Disney+Hotstar gave a new life lease into her professional career.

It was originally planned as a film initially. The producer Ram Madhvani decided to make this a web series when the budget became more than anticipated. It is inspired by the Dutch crime show “Penoza,” “Aarya” is about the lengths an individual woman will go to protect her family and to avenge the murder of her spouse.

The first season got praise from the audience, and the sequel is up to the expectations, even with a few flaws. The pacing of the show is a concern during the 2nd season. On the other hand, the show has a neat and clear narration and a few jarring interruptions. The creators have concentrated on establishing the personalities of their characters. Once you’ve gotten used to it, the show becomes captivating as it goes on.

Although Sushmita is the show’s star, “Aarya” isn’t just a one-person show by her character. Ankur Bhatia and Vishwajeet Pradhan Sugandha Garg, and Viren Vazirani are all worth shouting out for bringing more weight to the plot’s character-driven.

Sushmita’s portrayal of the title character illustrates how actors excel when writers break away from traditional writing. It is clear that the OTT space has inspired creators to experiment, and Sushmita is a good example of this by bringing to life the various dimensions that her character.

Her gripping performance in the dark moments of the show stays in your memory. It’s fun to watch her carry out action sequences with grace. The role tests the abilities of an actor. She excels as a loving mother and stylish woman. It is hoped that there will be more of these roles for an actor to take on in the world of streaming.
