Breathe: Into The Shadows narrates a strange crime in which the 6-year-old daughter of Dr. Avinash Sabharwal was kidnapped by a masked man. The kidnapper doesn’t ask for ransom money but requires Dr. Avinash (played by Abhishek Bachchan) to take someone’s life if he wants to see his daughter again.

Of course Avinash wouldn’t kill someone to save the girl but asked for help from the authority. He met Kabir Swant (played by Amit Sadh) who works in the harsh environment of Delhi Crime branch where lies and deceit could be seen overwhelming the atmosphere. Twelve episodes tell the journey of two men in saving Dr. Avinash’s daughter from the mystery criminal.

Abhishek plays the role of a father whose daughter is kidnapped in the web series.

On the first day of the movie release, most comments are positive with encouraging feedback on Abhishek Bachchan’s performance. Some admitted that they didn’t expect much from the series but then they were totally convinced of the junior Bachchan’s acting.

“Abhishek Bachchan proved once and for all that if he gets meaty role, he will play it to perfection.” – a user named Ajhellout wrote.

However, on the second day, July 11, there emerges negative comments on the pace and overall performance of the cast. Most of these audience reviews claim that the series is slow and predictable. Some particularly disapprove of Abhishek’s acting, saying he wasn’t able to exploit the character. He could have done better, they say, but he seemed to fail in expressing emotions in the series.

Anyway, it’s hard to please every audience when more and more people are watching the product. That’s why we will see how critics feel about this Abhishek Bachchan web series.

It's not the Junior Bachchan but Amit Sadh that got praises for performance.

Unfortunately, critical reviews of Breathe: Into The Shadows didn’t give more hope to the acting career of Abhishek Bachchan. Most reviews think the series is illogical while Big B’s son fails to impress the audience. The upset is even more highlighted when the series is the immediate follow-up of Paatal Lok, a breakthrough success of Anushka Sharma on Prime video.

Hindustan Times called this Abhishek Bachchan web series ‘ridiculous’ while claiming that the junior Bachchan delivered a ‘stern expression’ in a ‘vaguely foreign accent.’ Amit Sadh is the only actor to receive compliments from this newspaper.

Another source named First Post didn’t rate this web series high either. Though it admitted the elaborative writing of the series, it concluded that this Abhishek Bachchan web series has ‘no definitive direction.’ Like many other critics, this magazine gave no more than two stars out of five for Breathe: Into The Shadows.
