Welcome to OTTplay Lost and Found , one podcast that talks about critically acclaimed films and shows but lesser-known. I'm your host Nikhil.

Police procedurals are engineered to draw one into the investigation in question. To an extent, that one is encouraged and prodded to build one’s own theories about how the events surrounding a certain crime would’ve gone down. But there are also shows that leave you terrified yet hopeful, even while an alarming amount of evidence seems to be pointing at the obvious. Today’s Lost and Found is the BAFTA-nominated mini-series A Confession. Starring Martin Freeman in the lead as Detective Superintendent Steve Fulcher, the show opens to a missing person report. A 22-year-old woman named Sian O’Callaghan didn’t return home after a night out. Turning over the CCTV footage of a certain pub confirms the time and place where she was last seen. But lack of additional information makes it difficult for the cops to stitch together a theory about her whereabouts.

This one’s a slow burn and particularly for those who appreciate shows that gradually reveal facts and hold their cards close for a bit too long. But in its telling, the show, inadvertently, also allows the viewer to turn detective and theorize over what could’ve actually happened and even filter potential suspects. Without revealing any spoilers, let’s just say this one manages to build sufficient tension, and even while, at a point, it will be difficult to imagine how the parallel plots would be stitched together, hang in there and it will all be revealed in good time. A Confession can be streamed exclusively on Sony LIV.

Well, that's the OTTplay Lost and Found episode for today, I shall be back again tomorrow with a critically acclaimed film but lesser-known. This is your host Nikhil signing out.
