Hush Hush review: Juhi Chawla needs a better comeback and needs a better payoff

The strongest impression I felt after watching episode 7 ~ silence, be quiet, streaming on Amazon Prime, is one of many more possibilities. It might remind you of the quartet from Little Lies. Professional loop, I felt the complexity. “Hush Hush” starts off with a bang and goes smoothly in his first three episodes.

As befits a thriller, ‘Hush Hush’ loses no time in its setup, delivering a juicy scandal, snappy chatter and two corpses that explode in prime time. Her three best friends are horrified after Ishi (Juhi Chawla), a powerful lobbyist, is shown on national television for corruption. Zaira (Shahanagoswami) has become a successful fashion designer and has launched her own brand. She (Soha Ali Khan) is a former journalist turned housewife. They all live in her one of the ultra-luxury conclaves, all designers, cars, clothes, staff, untouched by the outside world. But two deaths in quick succession threatens to derail everything. where do they go from here?

Co-Director of Hush Hush Tanuja Chandra, Kopal Naithani and Ashish Pandey, with writing credits split between Chandra, Juhi Chaturvedi, Ashish Mehta, Shikhaa Sharma, and dialogue by Juhi Chaturvedi. The quick cuts initially masked the choppy dialogue, made choppy by the way it was delivered by the actors. Driven by feisty cop Geeta (Karishma Tanna), the investigation is incredible at first, but then it takes off. The best cop (Vibha Chibber, who cooks her tough, foul-mouthed, formidable cop meal) digs in, but when it becomes a lone-wolf operation is another thing entirely.

When Geeta uses ‘guts’ twice in exactly the same way on the exact same person, that’s the moment you can see exactly how things are heading south. A woman from Ishi’s dark past (Ayesha Juluka) appears. Shelter for girls, the racket of trafficking, the involvement of the rich and powerful, and the kingpin you found long before the conspiracy gave him up: this shift in tone takes notice from a woman whose life was so promising. first.

The cast is interesting, the women are all gametriers, but none really stand out except for Goswami and Kamla, and Tanna, who has a sliding Haryanvi accent. Why does a series bother to include fine detail in its scaffolding for fine details (therapist telling person off camera to turn down the noise because the client is disturbed; toneless at police gathering) “Guest Artist” singing at )) Slide when it comes to the main character?

How did Ishi overcome humble beginnings and become so powerful? We are given nothing to move on. When and how did these four women become friends? Again, no details. The biggest disappointment is the poor writing style of Ishi. She pivots, but I don’t know what drives her. Even with her little movie, Juhi Chawla is always available to watch, and after 2003’s “Teen Deewarein,” I kept waiting for her to return in a solid role. We deserve it, and we viewers deserve to be rewarded appropriately.
