I watched the entire series looking for logic, sense, and storyline but didn’t find any. I thought I should at least let you scroll this article so that you understand what ‘looking for content’ and then not finding anything of value feels like.

These 3 lines are my Hostages 2 Review. But still, to give you some clarity, I would highlight a few mistakes here. Before that:

DISCLAIMER:

If you want to watch Hostages Season 2, watch it at your own risk. 

Before I begin, if you have read my Hostages Season 1 review, you would know that this series is just not worth your time. And yes, the end said it out loud, ‘there will be Hostages Season 3.’ And I am also saying it out loud, ‘I am neither going to watch Hostages Season 3 or review it on this platform.’ Why? Because with Season 2, they have made it very clear that there is no point wasting time on this series. Instead, let’s fetch, give space to, and appreciate good content on this platform.

So what’s wrong with Hostages 2?

Firstly, in Season 1, Prithvi’s wife was seriously ill. She was in need of bone marrow without which she wouldn’t survive. When the lady made an entry in the first season, she was on life support and was constantly monitored by a full-time nurse. In season 2, Prithvi’s wife looks absolutely fine. Everyone around her knows she can be saved only through a bone marrow transplant just because the script says so. Physically, she looked fit. 

How can I forget? The bone marrow transplant procedure. It was so damn quick. I wonder if such a complicated procedure needs no before and after care. As in the series, the Doctor who was held as a hostage to perform bone marrow transplant was released immediately after the procedure was completed. Was there absolutely no chance of complications? Did neither the donor nor the patient required any medical attention after the transplant? 

According to healthline.com, complications associated with bone marrow transplant can be mild or very serious, and they can include:

  1. graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), which is a condition in which donor cells attack your body
  2. graft failure, which occurs when transplanted cells don’t begin producing new cells as planned
  3. bleeding in the lungs, brain, and other parts of the body
  4. cataracts, which is characterized by clouding in the lens of the eye
  5. damage to vital organs, and more

Then again, the bone marrow transplant is performed in an almost broken, damaged house where Prithvi and his entire team takes shelter and later hides. Now my question is, where did these guys get all the required medicines or equipment from? If the police were providing them with the medicines and equipment, then the Police should have immediately come to the conclusion that one of the hostages or someone among the kidnappers is terminally ill. But in one of the scenes, the police are seen saying that with all the demands, someone among the hostages must be INJURED but since the kidnappers won’t try to save the hostage’s life, they doubt that one of the kidnappers is injured. Didn’t the investigating officers once check what illness/disorder the medicines are used to treat? No wonder, they just established a huge office (which again made no sense at all) in front of the ruined house and relaxed with the entire team till the operation ended. 

Let us now talk about one of the most nonsensical twists in the story. After the surgery is done, Prithvi looks for ways to get out of the ruined house. The team cannot escape from the front door without surrendering as it is being surrounded by the police. Now don’t ask me how, but Prithvi, in that damaged house, finds a (kind of) tunnel which leads to the outside world. He starts digging further to find a way out. And ta-da! In one of the scenes, when he gets out, where does he land? It looked like a whole different world, something like an old fort. 

Dear Writers, kaise kar lete lo bhai? I mean, thodasa logic? Thodusaaa??? 

Other than plenty of loopholes, Hostages Season 2 has introduced unnecessary characters in the show like Shibani Dandekar and Dino Morea. After one point, I didn’t even want to know why are they where they are and what was their purpose. I was just glad that the show is nearing its end. 

The only track I liked was of Shweta Basu Prasad. She has performed very well. In this chaos, you just want to see more of her. 

Season 2 is something you wouldn’t want to watch because its first season didn’t impress viewers. And then, for season 2 to make little sense, you would have to watch the first season so that you easily connect the dots. But then, would anyone want to go through that torture again? I don’t think so.

P.S: If anyone knows what exactly Prithvi’s wife was suffering from, please comment below. I went through Season 1 quickly, I Googled to find out the disease but I just couldn’t. If I have missed the details, please let me know in the comments so that we can do better research on bone marrow transplant 😉
